Celebrating 52 years

Our Story

David John Salon had its origins in a purpose built portable building in Widford Road Chelmsford in 1971 whilst the building in Moulsham Street was being constructed. Moving to Moulsham Street in 1973.

Following an extremely successful 20 years of building up the business to be one of the most renowned in Essex for its professionalism and fantastic team of staff, David decided to sell the business in the early 90s.

After David completed his apprenticeship he was fortunate at being accepted as one of the first external trainees at Vidal Sassoon in London during the 60s working under Vidal himself and establishing a celebrity client base.

The opportunity arose in February 2011 for David to acquire the business once again and did so to be assisted by his daughter, Hayley, recruiting some very senior stylists and assistants.

David John Salon opened and closed its doors for the very last time on Saturday 11th June 2022, David & Jenne are taking a well earned retirement after 52 years in business.

We would like to wish all our current staff much success in where they are moving on to.
