About Marcus

Hair has never just been a job for me, it’s a craft, and I’ve never found another job where I can create something so different and special using the same canvass. I never just wanted to be a hairdresser, I wanted to be an artist, and to be creating and delivering the vision of my clients and advising whenever some changes were needed.

It all started for me from a chair in the kitchen when I was just thirteen, in my family home, sat watching my mother doing an inverted bob freehand, that’s the moment I knew what I wanted to do with my life. To achieve this ambition I began an apprenticeship at the tender age of sixteen, and I started learning from stylists at the very top of their field, and who were always striving to improve.

My journey then took me to one of the top salons in Harrogate, where I continued developing my knowledge, skills and experience. I also attended the Wella Academy in Manchester and London where I undertook Barbering and Hair Styling courses, and then went on to complete a Master Colour Expert course from which I gained the highest colour qualification with Wella. I also successfully completed the TQUA Assessor Award, and I worked very closely for five years with an established independent training provider in Harrogate.

So, now I’m taking the final step in my dream of so many years, and opening my own salon in a beautiful Victorian arcade in the heart of the Spa town of Harrogate, and I hope after reading this you too may become a valued client.

Located in the Westminster Arcade on the First Floor, this is the salon I did my apprenticeship many years ago. So this is nice to do a big circle and go back to where it all started.
