Meet The Team

Mark Brown


"In the industry for 30 years now I have a wealth of experience in cutting, colour and managing your hair needs. I completed a traditional 5-year apprenticeship in South Australia where I also worked as salon manager, business owner and completed stage photography and session work in Adelaide and Melbourne. I moved back to the UK in 2001 and within no time was working as an educator. After ten years as a teacher and further education manager I set up Barber Brown with a clear vision to deliver hair that people wanted to a high standard."


“Mark has taken a step back from hairdressing to focus on the business outside of the salon floor and to spend some time with his daughter Ruby. Mark isn’t my boss but my coach and I couldn’t ask for a more supportive and dedicated coach, Mark has built an amazing business that continues to grow and develop. Mark has pushed us to be the best versions of ourselves; he continues to aid the team in developing their skills and encourages us to be brave and bold with our cuts and colours. I personally couldn’t be more thankful to everything Mark has done and continues to do.” - Jess



"Baber Brown’s Broadmead salon opened for

the first time in March 2011. I joined the

Barber Brown Team mid year of 2011 and completed my NVQ level 3

at Barber Brown Academy 2012. Fast forward and to the last couple of

years where I took a break from hairdressing and worked in financial

administration but my heart wasn't in it. I returned to Barber Brown in

August 2017 with a newfound passion and creative vision for restyling hair. I believe everyone is different and I love to make our clients feel that their experience at Barber Brown’s is unique and that they leave the salon feeling like a million pounds. A vibrant colour and alternative cut is what I live for!

Since returning to Barber Brown’s I had taken on the Management role which led to our biggest quarter

thus far. Going back before returning to Barber Brown’s I would have laughed if you told me that I could manage a team and grow into a successful businesswoman. Yet here I am. I have since stepped down from my management role to focus on my skills, if you would like to book in with someone that makes you feel comfortable, relaxed and positive then I’m your girl. With my level of experience and passion you will be booking in with someone who knows what she’s doing." - Jess

“Jess returned after a mini break from hairdressing and has come back a very loyal and talented leader of the team. Jess has a stand out image of her own and not only creating beautiful haircuts and fashion favourite colours, Jess is the best manager I have trained and fantastic at keeping the team focused. Jess would keep the salon busy and the months ahead planned full of profit and fun. Jess has now taken a step back from her managing role with all of my support. I don't doubt Jess's decisions and know she will succeed like the superstar she is! Jess has a real passion and drive for hairdressing and constantly pushes herself and her abilities to grow. I could not be more proud of Jess and I know that there is so much more to come.” - Mark

Jess is an expert in all things colour, especially her technical skills, colour correction and balayage.



“With an FDA in fashion and levels 2 & 3 in Beauty already under my belt I furthered my achievements with level 3 Hairdressing in 2017. Soon after I accomplished a credit in my L'Oreal colour degree. 

Previously employed at Sean Hannah for 3 years as a receptionist, I then worked my ass off to become the stylist I am today. I pride myself in the fact that I am very client focused and will go above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable.

I am very excited to start my new journey in hairdressing with Barber Brown and love being part of the amazing team here. I have been welcomed with open arms into a friendly and amiable environment where I feel energized and inspired to grow my column and continue developing my creative skills. Watch this space!” - Josie

“Josie is going to make you smile at every moment, with her complete lack of ego that makes her so approachable. If you have ever had a hairdresser that you felt too overpowered by, then please come to Josie. She’ll work with you, listen to you and make sure you really feel in control. Josie enjoys getting to know the clients, so they feel comfortable to say ANYTHING. From not liking the way their fringe is blow-dried and how they want it changing or that their flatmate is a bastard. A good friendship means you always get what makes you happy!” - Jess



"I had known for a long while that I wanted to be a hairdresser and after feeling unfulfilled in my previous jobs, I realised that I needed to just go for it. Hairdressers are often known to be somewhat intimidating and not very warming at times which had put me off. And when deciding this was the path for me, I was determined that I was not going to be either of those things.

I love making sure that anyone who walks through the door feels welcome and that they really enjoy their salon experience. Helping someone feel good and positive in their own skin is such a big part of what I do, and I enjoy every second of it. I’ve turned what I always thought was just a hobby into a career.

I have a thirst for knowledge and love all things science-related in hairdressing. There are such so many positives to hairdressing I could just keeping going,

but to knuckle it down I love a good restyle, colour and working through

hair plans for clients. I also get a real buzz through meeting people from

all walks of life especially in the judgment free salon that is

Barber Brown! ." - Hayley
