From Humble Beginnings

Now, 37 years on, Mary operates a highly successful, luxurious Salon and Hair Loss Clinic in Bryanstown Centre situated on the south side of the town.

At 17 years old, Mary achieved her ‘World Federation of Supreme Hairdressers’ degree at the world-renowned Morris Masterclass Academy in Tottenham Crt Rd, London. At the Academy, Mary triumphed by receiving distinctions in each aspect of the hairdressing profession.

After spending four years in London as a tutor at Morris Masterclass, Mary returned to Ireland and joined the Peter Mark group. At Peter Mark, Mary’s devotion and talent rewarded her with the position as area manager, where she inherited the responsibility of operating 15 Peter Mark Salons. The role of area manager enhanced Mary’s knowledge and proficiency in staff management and in turn contributed to her wealth of knowledge in leading teams of over 100 staff members. Furthermore, Mary enhanced her expertise in all other aspects of the managerial sector, including financial and HR duties.

At the age of 25, Mary appointed her years of profound wisdom and training in the hair dressing profession to the opening of her first salon, Visage, where she employed ten staff members.

Visage soon evolved into one of the leading salons in the area, where Mary’s clients enjoyed a very high standard of luxury, expertise and professionalism. Throughout the years, Mary has been involved in multiple competitions, where she has undoubtedly acclaimed many awards for her salon.

The Orange Room

In 2007, The Orange Room opened its doors in one of Drogheda’s most thriving locations, south of Drogheda town.

Mary believes that the client should “experience complete and utter relaxation and expertise” on their visit to her salon, a belief is reflected in every aspect of her client’s visit. For fifteen years The Orange Room has been renowned for its professionalism and commitment to establishing long lasting, trusting relationships with its clientele. The Orange Room remains one of the leading hair salons in the country.

Alongside a team of 11 staff members, The Orange Room offers a tranquil ambiance, where Mary strives for her clients to feel that The Orange Room is “not just a salon … but a complete experience “The salon offers spacious surroundings, equipped with 13 sections to enhance the clients’ comfort and relaxation.

A private area is subsequently available in the salon, devoted specifically to bridal parties, allowing them to experience the start of their magical day at The Orange Room. With four bridal specialists on the team, the salon prides itself on delivering the highest quality in bridal up-styling, as seen in Ireland’s top bridal magazines ‘Image’ and ‘Confetti’.
