A Master Coiffurist Reflects On A Stylish Career
By Nathan James

If you take a walk around Manhattan’s tony Upper East Side, home to diplomats, socialites, and old money, you will come upon the chic, fabulous Mark De Alwis Salon, where its namesake keeps Gotham’s elite looking sleek and jazzy.  The stylist’s long road to the Big Apple began in Sri Lanka, where his talent for coiffure manifested itself when he was just 16.  “I was doing hair from that young age,” Mark recollects, “and by the time I was 19, I was the head stylist at a big salon, in a major hotel.”  His work eventually brought him across the Pacific, to New York, where he has worked, owned and operated his amazing  salon for nearly two decades.  “I have clients who are socialites, celebrities, and just ordinary people,” he says, “and we make them all look fabulous.” 

Mark’s artistic vision draws on those who have mentored him, and he creates stunning new looks that have followed the trends of the day.  Just as in fashion, where hemlines rise or fall with social mores, “hairstyles reflect our society”, he notes.  “Running this salon is a challenge, “Mark allows, “but it’s what I love to do.”  That passion has manifested itself in the shop’s many accolades, including Best  rated Hair Salon in NYC, including Best haircuts and styllin, Best color and Highlights, Salon in NYC.  In addition to all that, Mark is also an accomplished fashion designer, and while in Sri Lanka, he had his own fashion boutique.

Mark’s work extends beyond coiffure, and he’s done makeup for international pop stars, models, and actors.  Labelleladiva PR agency head Yvonne Forbes had high praise for Mark, saying, “Mark is one of the most amazing celebrity stylists [working] today.  His creative vision is beyond what the mind can comprehend.”    Mark’s deft, but delicate touch brings out celebrities’ theatrical best, and when an emerging film star prepared for his signature cabaret show in October, he went straight to Mark for his hairdo.  “There’s just nobody else like him,” the actor stated.

“I’ve been a hair stylist for a while,” Mark reflects, “and it’s still interesting every day.”  Whether it’s getting his customer’s preferred look just so, or prepping a model or celebrity for a dazzling photo shoot, Mark is known for his diligence and comportment, always turning his clients out in the most eye-catching way.  You can discover more about Mark and the Mark De Alwis Salon by visiting his salon.
