Mark of Zoology, Wanstead, from my Angels of Wanstead series

When Mark Mountney; proprietor of Zoology Hair Salons, smiles his whole face lights up, his staff hold him in high regard and I’ve never seen him frown. I decided to make him an Angel because he made sure I didn’t pay for stylists for the entire duration of my chemotherapy and then while my hair grew back. During the interview I discovered that this generosity is consistent, from the heart and that he is a little bemused that more people don’t accept his offers, which for him are important, expressing his need to do right by people in his own light, which means helping those who help others.

Mark has two salons in Wanstead and another in Loughton. He is warm and friendly with a slightly reserved demeanor which I guess is a direct result of years of experience. I’m sure he is a mine of hilarious anecdotes and hope to hear them when the time is right. Meanwhile if you would like to read the article you can find it here.
