In memoriam – Mark Mausenbaum

It is with great sadness that Professional Beauty reports on the passing of Mark Mausenbaum, branding manager of Saloncare, who died tragically aged 56 on 3 June, following a long and courageous battle against brain cancer.

Mark joined the industry in June 2017 to assist the all-female team at Saloncare. Whilst he excelled in liaising with suppliers and stock control, company CEO Amanda Harrod (Mark’s wife) felt that his talents were being wasted in these departments. Mark had a marketing diploma under his belt, as well as huge creative flare and owned a casting agency, where he executed all the photography.

Thus, the decision was made to move him to the marketing and branding department.

His skills in social media, passion for photography and his charming and humble personality made him popular in the industry. Mark showed a love for experimenting with all types of cosmetic products, was always keen to attend workshops to broaden his knowledge and remained continuously involved in research.

All of Mark’s valuable contributions started to grow the company’s national and international footprint rapidly. The clients loved his wonderful way of always making them feel important, as well as accommodating them at all hours of the day or night. Amanda and Mark made a powerful duo who accomplished so much together and even more so when joined by their daughter, Miranda.

Mark is survived by Amanda and their three beautiful children.

He will be sorely missed by the health and beauty industry, as well as by the Saloncare team.

Professional Beauty extends its sincere condolences to Mark’s family, friends and colleagues.
