Her credits include Disney+ original film Noelle, Hair Spray Live!, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Top Chef, The Bling Ring, How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life), and The Voice, which earned her 4 Emmy nominations for “Outstanding Hairstyling.”After graduating beauty school, she knew this was the world she belonged in. While working at Vidal Sassoon in London, she started building her portfolio with photoshoots. Her work in TV and Film happened gradually from there, but wasn’t something Cheryl actively pursued until joining the Union a couple of years ago. She believed in the myth that editorial stylists are more talented than hairdressers working on TV and movie sets, but was totally wrong. Marks says, “When you’re working in the TV and Film industry, you have to know everything…period hair, wigs, which products work on screen and more."Cheryl spent 4 seasons on NBC’s The Voice and was the Hair Department Head for TV series Enlisted, Selfie, and Flaked, as well as the highly successful films Pitch Perfect 2 and Pitch Perfect 3. She has additionally worked on TV commercials for brands like Old Navy and Realtor.com, both with Elizabeth Banks.
