Mark Leeson has just returned from a mini tour of the US where he took to the stage to audiences in their thousands. First stop was New Orleans, where Mark presented an inspiring creative show at the behindthechair.com annual convention. The event attracts visitors from all over the US in their thousands, and this year the star attraction was British Hairdresser of the Year, Mark Leeson, from Mansfield. “There was an incredible vibe at this show and the audience were very engaging and seemed to love our models,” said Mark. Mark was representing global haircare product company, Goldwell, whom he is the Creative Ambassador for.
From New Orleans it was back on a plane to Las Vegas, where another grand scale hair convention was gathering. This was the grand final of Goldwell’s Color Zoom – an international hair colour competition which Mark has been heavily involved in mentoring the UK competitors. The big night itself was a truly global affair with a handful of leading hairdressers from all over the world presenting shows, which Mark Leeson was the headline act. “Performing in Vegas was an incredibly proud moment for me. The audience was huge, and it was an extremely precious moment in my career. I had been planning my show for months, so for it to be so well received and to get such positive feedback was wonderful,” said Mark.
With plenty more global shows in the diary, it seems Mark Leeson’s international career is going from strength to strength and he is well and truly flying the flag for British hairdressing.
