Best of Masters: Marianne Dougherty

Marianne Dougherty has been a beauty editor for the past 26 years and currently serves as Editor in Chief of American Salon. As publisher of American Salon from 1994 to 1999, she launched several magazines, including American Spa, American Stylist, and Shades of Beauty. She is co-author of Asian Beauty (HarperCollins, 2001) and has been featured as a beauty consultant on Live in L.A., the Lifetime Network, and Weekend Today New York.

“In my opinion, Marianne is the go-to person for most everything! Her knowledge, experience, and relationships could rival anyone’s. The awesome thing is that she uses what she knows and who she knows to support everyone she comes into contact with. She loves and knows our industry like no other, and her MASTERS interview proves it!” – Winn Claybaugh
