Hello my name is Karolyn Marchel, co-owner of HannaMarchel Salon. I have been in the beauty business for 36 years and still love it!!  33 of those years I have been doing hair right here in our beautiful town of Ellensburg Washington. It gives me great joy to help people feel good about themselves with a fabulous new hair style. I have an amazing husband Chris. He is my partner in life and business. My daughter, Jessica Hanna, and her husband, Tom Hanna, are co-owners. Together they have given me seven beautiful grandchildren. My life is full of love and very busy! I love it!

Hi there! My name is Jessica Hanna and I am a co-owner of HannaMarchel Salon. HannaMarchel came about for several reasons; to save a building, bring my numerous babies to work and to go into business with my mother. After adding the 7th child to my family, I left the day to day job at the salon to focus on my large family and on making positive changes in the foster care system. Thanks to my wonderful mother, loyal clientele and a great team of stylists, I am able to step back and watch something I started thrive!


My name is Nadia and I am the manager here at Hanna Marchel Salon! I received my Cosmetology license at 18 and I am a makeup artist for Bare Minerals. I started experimenting with different make up styles, and hair styles and found myself doing hair for girls at my school for dances, dates, and games. I fell in love with everything about it! My goal for every girl is to feel beautiful, loved, adored, and to leave the salon feeling fresh! I love my job more and more every day and cannot wait to greet you!

My name is Mary and I have been living in Ellensburg since I was in the third grade. Over a year ago and started working at HannaMarchel Salon (and I love it!). From the age of four, I knew I wanted to be a hairdresser. My mom was a nail technician and all of her friends were cosmetologists, so I grew up around the salon lifestyle.I specialize in makeup, eyebrow waxes, all over colors, ombres, and Balayages. When I'm not in the salon, I spend a lot of my time with my family (especially my niece and nephew). I love anything outdoors, like playing sports, hiking, running, and swimming.

I am silly,  love to laugh, and I enjoy getting to know knew people! I would love to get to know you and have tons of fun creating new looks for the different seasons!
