The sign of a great salon is one that has stood the test of time, and Russell Eaton salons have done just that. Steeped in history and with a strong family heritage at it’s core, the Russell Eaton brand has truly made its mark on British hairdressing over the last four decades.


The Russell Eaton brand began from humble beginnings with the first Russell Eaton salon opening its door in 1978 in Barnsley, Yorkshire. Over the next 30 years the salon transitioned through several moves and expanded into bigger premises. Eventually in 2009 the Russell Eaton brand had become such a success, with both customers and the hair industry, that the decision was made to open a new flagship salon in Leeds city centre.

Russell Eaton team members have remained loyal to the salons, with many members having grown up alongside the business, sharing and expanding its ever-growing success. At least two of the Barnsley salon team members have worked within the salon for over 30 years, while another four members have worked in the salon for a decade. However, perhaps its greatest asset is that their clients have remained loyal too. Many clients have been visiting the salon for decades and in some cases, families spanning three generations visit. The Russell Eaton brand truly has family and tradition at its heart.

However, it’s not just in Yorkshire that Russell Eaton is a renowned name; the salons have become recognised globally for their creativity and ground-breaking hairdressing.

Founder Russell Eaton says, “I am so proud of how far the Russell Eaton salons have come. Seeing my salons go from strength to strength has literally been a dream come true. To have my family working alongside me all the way has made the experience even better, more than I could ever hope for.”
