Born into a family of hairdressers, Marki Shkreli’s interest in hairdressing was sparked at an early age. Having mentored under Detroit legend David Presley, whom was 100 years old when they both met, Marki was encouraged to move from his hometown in Michigan to New York City in 2005.
A self-starter, Marki assisted many renowned session hairdressers and was a valuable member of Guido’s show team. Marki began a portraits project series of models that he both styled and shot himself. His talent was spotlighted in 2012 while living in Paris he was booked on his first editorial as an independent hairdresser; Self Service with Ezra Petronio.
His work appears in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Dazed, i-D, and Pop. Celebrity clients include Drew Barrymore, Emma Watson, Tilda Swinton, Pamela Anderson and Elle Fanning.
Marki is based between New York and Los Angeles.
