of Style 50Years
Known for their exceptional service, precision styling, talented staff and luxury in-salon experience, Clip Joint Salons continues to impress, well into their 50th year of business.
24 THE VINE Clip Joint hairdressing is marking its 50th year of business. The iconic hairdressing institution is proud to be family owned and operated and employs over 50 South Australians across its three hairdressing salons and training academy, Clip Joint Education.
Although today you might know Clip Joint for their infamous Burnside Blowdry and editorial work in the local fashion scene, the hairdressing group began as a high-end barbery back in 1970. Started by two gents in their 20s who had big dreams of bringing international hair looks to the streets of Adelaide.
They were inspired by European styling and delivering a unique in-salon experience. Both elements of which, would continue to influence the brand for years to come and are evident throughout their salons – from the Sassoon methodology used by stylists, through to the biscotti served on their in-salon refreshment menu. The first Clip Joint salon opened at Burnside Village in 1983 and has continued to grow and evolve over the years. It is now the flagship salon of the group which spans over two levels and boasts over 25 talented stylists, colourists and makeup artists. Burnside Village salon manager, Simone Roach, credits the business’ success to ongoing team training, a commitment to evolving to what clients want today, and delivering styles, not trends. Simone says, “Although we are proud to celebrate where we have come from with this milestone, we are focussed on where we go in the next 50 years. With strong foundations and the next generation of industry leaders driving the direction, I’m excited to see where the future takes us.”
Clip Joint is kicking off celebrations with client events, workshops and new additions to their in-salon services.
