Mary Daly Daly Salon

While studying graphic design, Mary was scouted by her Mum’s hairdresser as a teenager and she has never looked back: “I became (and still am) completely hypnotised by hair and makeup and even before I was working professionally I would spend all day giving my friends makeovers for a Saturday night out.”

From performing makeover magic on her friends, Mary has progressed to famous faces, including David Campbell, Jimmy Barnes, Olivia Newton-John, Caroline O’Connor, Sia and Anna Mears. She even gave Adriana Xenedies her signature pixie cut and styled the hair and makeup for the film clip for Darryl Braithwaite’s iconic song The Horses.

Despite her extensive experience on film and photo shoots, Mary’s specialty is weddings: “I see it as a real privilege when a bride comes to me to make them up for one of the most important days of their life,” she says.

“More than anything it’s about making people feel beautiful and it’s so nice to see people’s faces and eyes light up at the end result…you can’t buy that.”
