Celebrating 20 Years of Perfect Colour

We are very excited to be celebrating 20 years of the Jo Hansford Salon this year!

Over the last 20 years, the salon has been a magnet for just about every A lister - from royalty, film stars and celebrities to media moguls and businesswomen.  We have seen Hollywood’s finest screen stars pass through our doors as well as First Ladies of politics and many of the world’s leading entertainers and supermodels.

Our first Mayfair hair salon opened its doors on Mount Street in 1993 with just eight staff in the middle of the recession. 

Jo says: “Business was incredibly tough when we first opened the salon and we hemorrhaged money.  It was a case of heads down, colours on! We managed to break even and make a profit at the end of our second year.  Our small team worked incredibly hard and managed to build a regular client base and retain them.”

Fast forward 20 years and Jo Hansford has become an icon in the field of hair colouring and a household name - not only because of her legendary talents for transforming clients' looks through their hair colour, but as the lone woman in a notoriously male-dominated profession.

Jo says: “I can’t believe I’ve been running the salon for 20 years – it just feels like yesterday when I first opened the doors and welcomed in my first client.  I’ve been through several ups and downs, just like many of my clients who have stayed with me from day one.  It’s a great achievement to have 20 years of business success and I’m already looking forward to the next decade!” 

“I find the industry as exciting now as I did at the beginning of my career and still get a thrill when I make my clients look fabulous.”
