John started out in the hair industry working as a stylist, catering for the rich and famous, at Leonard Stein's salon at Marble Arch where he also completed his apprenticeship. In 1973 he decided to bring the lifestyle of the West End to Essex and he opened my first salon in Westcliff on Sea called John Barry. After ten successful years of establishing a thriving business in Westcliff on Sea, he bought another hair salon called Professional Hair in Eastwood and began training the already competent stylists to his level.

He refurbished the salon a short time ago, spending £200,000 creating a modern look with a warm friendly atmosphere, as well as extending the premises to allow for their growing client list allowing to offer the same West End Standards he is recognised for

Here at Professional Hair we pride ourselves on customer service and making sure all of our clients are happy with their look. With all of our clients old and new we don`t just recommend a hairstyle straight away. We like to get to know our clients, find out more about their lifestyle, what they like and how good they are at managing their own hair. Then once we have established a cut then we like to explore the options of finishes, maybe a smooth and sleek look or a messy more natural style with lots of texture, we always gather as much information as possible, to create the perfect style for them.

If you have any questions about colour correction, a new look or anything at all our advice service is free to everyone and we will happily answer any questions or concerns to the best of our abilities. Please pop in or give the salon a call regarding your queries, there is no obligation and we would be delighted to help.

We want your visit to us to be a pleasurable experience and we look forward to hearing from you.
