Rossa Danagher is one of the foremost trend setters in the hair industry, with his work impacting the international hair fashion landscape for almost twenty-five years. Always striving to be independent and stand on his own two feet, Rossa began his career at the early age of 13 when he started helping out in his aunt’s hair salon for no other reason than to earn some pocket money. It was the love of the craic that kept Rossa in the salon, yet soon after it was the love of the craft that embraced him fully into the industry.
At the age of 17 Rossa began his career with Peter Mark in Sligo. It was here Rossa gained the solid foundation he needed to surmount the hairdressing industry. At just 20 years old he decided to head for the bright lights of London to polish off this craft; driven to become the best he could be. London presented the experience of a complete lifestyle change for Rossa. It was then he knew the potential the hair industry had, and he was ready to embrace it.
Rossa returned home from London with twelve pounds in his pocket and he decided then he never wanted to be that broke again. He never was. He returned back to Peter Mark for five more years further perfecting his craft and management skills, before deciding to do it alone.
