Not content with owning one of the most successful high end salons in Dublin, he is about to launch his latest venture Sugar Cubed, a brand new salon situated in central Dublin. There has been a gaping hole for a salon that caters for all those uber-creative types out there. The salon, with it’s eye for urban fashion, is set to be on the pulse of cutting edge street style.

Do you need colour in your life? Then you need to know Mark Byrne…

Senior Colour Technician at Brown Sugar, South William St.

Mark has been a colour technician for over 9 years and began his career as a hairdresser at the tender age of 16. He trained and qualified with Peter Mark where he met and worked with Mark O Keeffe, the owner of Brown Sugar.

Mark has worked with Brown Sugar for six years and has a clientelle that includes Wonderland’s Jodi Albert, Yvonne Keating, Lisa Fitzpatrick and Lorraine Keane to name but a few.

During his time as a senior colour technician, Mark has given inspirational colour technician training for the L’Oreal Academy,  has contributed to the Brown Sugar L’Oreal  Colour Trophy show in 2010 and completed a colour specialist degree.

Mark prides himself on keeping colour natural looking even if your colour is not your own.

TOP TIP from Mark: “When visiting the salon for the first time, if you have an idea of the look you want, it is always a good idea to bring photographs so that myself and the client both have a good idea of what the final look should be. Homecare is also as important as a regular visit to the salon”.
