[SPQ Article] Mark Anthony Hair Salon

“Success is a journey, not a destination”
by Dessie Bey

The ambiance in the reception area sets you at ease; a Charles Bibbs painting adorns the reception room wall. You recognize the culture of beauty that you will become in your own way.

Women psych themselves up for an appointment at the salon. We walk in knowing that we’re suspended in time and patiently wait. “Time waits for no one” but everything is on hold when a woman props herself in the chair of her stylist and lets him/her work magic. If you’re lucky enough to get on the books of Anthony Jefferson you count it a blessing.

Mark Anthony Hair Salon Inc. opened in 1998 and Owner/Operator Anthony Jefferson can boast of 25 years professional experience in the business. His résumé illuminates a history of service under premiere establishments: Pittsburgh Beauty Academy, primary barber instructor; stylist at Bobby J’s, Pro Hair Designs and Premadonna’s Hair Salon. Anthony obtained his barber and teacher’s license from the Pittsburgh Beauty Academy and was privately trained by Framesi International, the nation’s leading hair color company.  Click Here for Full Details
