My name is Mark Gallegos. I have been in the hair industry for 10 years. I am born and raised in Colorado and made my move to Denver 9 years ago to attend the Aveda Institute Denver for my Cosmetology License.
After completing my schooling at Aveda I assisted a Stylist at the Aveda Academy for a year to refine my technical skills. I then decided to make the move to mens grooming after attending the Menswork Academy with American Crew at Al’s Barbershop. I chose my Home at Floyds 99 Barbershop on 11th and Broadway. After working with the company for a year I was taken into a meeting to let me know I was number one in the entire company for retail, I was then given the opportunity to become a National Educator and Brand ambassador for the company. This opportunity has given me many exciting and new adventures from traveling to the house of Schorem in the Netherlands to be taught by the Reuzel brand from attending my first New York Fashion Week doing hair backstage along with receiving my Barber License in January of 2017.
I have a passion for education and getting out of my comfort zone. I enjoy doing editorial photo shoots and working fashion shows. On a local level I have worked Westword Artopia in 2013 doing hair representing Floyds 99, Denver Fashion weekend in 2014 and I have also worked Massif Fashion week in November 2017. I am excited to announce my first photo shoot will be published in Pulp Magazine in April 2018!! I LOVE HAIR AND LOVE TO GROW
