Mark Metropolis

The zodiac chart features one of many typical Gemini’s who goes by the name Mark Anthony Parker Adkins. His hairstyling career began in 1998 in Atlanta where he worked for the top Aveda concept salon in the nation. In the year 2000, after frantically surviving Y2K, he realized he needed to move to California to pursue his all his dreams… acting in films, writing books, hairdressing for the stars, and studying Teaology!

Like many California dreamers though, he found himself working full time in a salon. He did however go on to do hair for the long running game show Jeopardy as well as MTV’s True Life and a few other reality shows. 2005 found Mark acting in the award winning indie film “Souvenir.” In early 2008, Mark appeared as a featured Colorist on the new Bravo show “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover.” He went on to pursue one of his original dreams as writer by self-publishing a collection of 6 poetry books.

And in 2009 he and his long time partner (Hairstylist and NAHA nominee) Richie Roman had their 1st daughter, Tallulah, via surrogate. When not with clients and taking a break as full time Daddy, Mark sips his tea and finds excitement writing for The Hair Nerds!
