Mark Ziegler, owner of the Five Points Salon, is a multi-talented and passionate professional who gives one hundred percent to whatever he does. He is from Camden, South Carolina where he still has family.  His initiation into hair styling began with his grandfather who was a barber. With an open and creative mind Mark soon realized that a career in hair styling would provide a good fit for his artistic talent and give him the kind of on-going challenge he was looking for.  After high school Mark attended the Legrand Institute in Camden where he earned a certification in cosmetology in 2008.  Shortly after that Mark moved to Columbia to work as a stylist at a downtown salon.  He is a certified Aveda stylist who has won a strong following in the Columbia area.  He has been nominated for the Free Times “Best Hair Stylist” Award three times (2014 – 2016) and has won the runner up award twice.

Mark joined the Five Points Salon in 2011, and became owner in 2017.  He is a master designer in cutting and coloring.  He believes that stylists are true artists, trained to collaborate with clients for the creation of original styles suited to each person.  He finds that the most rewarding benefit of the job is making people look and feel great.  Mark loves to travel (Greece, Mexico, United Kingdom, etc.), to cook great meals for other people, and to sing in local musical productions such as Godspell, Hair Spray, and Rag Time.
