As a young gun, Londoner Mark Jones began his hairdressing career in Knightsbridge under Herta Keller, one time Vidal Sassoon’s European Art Director. She taught him the rules of the craft, and when Mark came to Sydney, Val Garland taught him how to break them. Part of an elite team, cutting and styling for fashion, film and television and the music industry, Mark was steeped in a culture of collaboration. From there to Helmet, where it was all about polish and restraint. Later still at Muse, Mark trained and mentored a new generation of cutters and stylists. In 2012, Mark and colourist Kathy Gilbert pooled their collective talent and vision to create Crown Hair.
