Mahri, an interior designer and entrepreneur always dreamed of having the long, thick, luxurious head of hair she was not blessed with at birth. This desire sparked a personal quest that has spanned decades.
Born and raised in Colorado, Mahri was intrigued by the sciences and majored in Mathematics at the University of Colorado. While modeling to fund her college education, Mahri’s hair was augmented with hair pieces to create the look of thick abundant hair. Once they were removed, she was dismayed and disappointed to have her thin, lifeless hair back and became determined to make that thick luscious mane a permanent reality.
Martens Tomas was established to find a solution to the bothersome and psychologically devastating problem of having fine, thin, fragile hair—there had to be a way to have a gorgeous head of hair that felt like "you were born with it".
In 1988 Martens Tomas started researching the techniques of hair attachment. This research fast became a relentless pursuit that lead all over the country from hair salons to wig makers to companies that sold hair—to companies that had anything to do with hair. The various techniques and different approaches tried were painful and artificial looking. The hair used was inexpensive and dyed, giving it a lifeless look and feel.
The outcome of this disappointing research was the decision to develop their own solution, and thus, in October 1990, Martens Tomas was established. The initial idea of a procedure that would look and feel like one’s own hair came first. Working with chemists to develop a proprietary bond—a bond that would not harm one’s own hair followed. Exquisite undyed European hair from hair merchants in northern Finland and Russia solved the dull and lifeless hair problem. Developing an exceptional line of hair care products came next.
Once these basic tenets were in place, years were spent working with clients to perfect the signature procedure—Microtresses®. In 1997 Martens Tomas affiliated with and began offering their procedure at plastic surgery clinics in Aspen, CO, 1999 in Denver, CO, and 2007 Beverly Hills, CA. While many clients wanted hair for glamorous reasons, others had more medical issues and needed different solutions. Their needs inspired the development of additional products. These include Crown Tresses, Adornment Tresses, and a myriad of other solutions used for specific issues.
At this time, Martens Tomas is affiliated with and offers their procedures at the Haworth Institute in Beverly Hills, CA, and at the Plastic Surgery Clinic in Denver, CO.
