About Us

Welcome to Jarrod Hair Salon

Our team have been in the industry for over 25 years, building up a large, loyal following of happy clients. By keeping up with the latest techniques and trends we have been able to stay ahead of the game.

Since opening our brand NEW Southend Hair Salon on 3rd November 2011 we have quickly built up a reputation for a relaxed, down to earth vibe and quality haircuts. Fantastic facilities, including a chilled courtyard for summer waiting, will ensure you leave feeling fully refreshed……looking forward to coming back, even just for a trim!!!!

We start all appointments with a consultation to discuss the look & feel you want to achieve. We’ll make sure all ideas are explored and provide you with the best advice on cut and colour – taking into account what suits your face shape as well as your lifestyle. You’ll leave the salon with not only a hairstyle that looks great but also with the know-how and confidence to re-create the look yourself.

It took well over a year to find the right shop before settling on this one. With a bright and airy feel, excellent parking, close to the highstreet & Southend central and the added bonus of an outdoor reception area for the clients to wait before and after their appointments in the summer, this was the perfect location

My vision was simple I wanted to create a beautiful looking salon and at the same time a salon that had a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, yet a salon that was different from the norm. I decided that it would look amazing if i had my cutting sections running down the middle of the shop instead of round the edges of the shop like you see in every other salon. Not only would it look good it would utilise all that light coming in from the back of the shop. 


You would have to ask my clients that!!!! But if I had to guess it would be because they are happy with the way their hair looks.

As a stylist that has been in the business for over 20 years I think the trick is never get too complacent, always come up with new ways your clients can wear their hair, whether it be a different colour for the season or a special blow-dry for that night out. It’s easy for a hairdresser to get caught in a rut with a client that they have been doing the same style on for years and years, so I always like to offer friendly advice to all my customers…….with a few different ideas.


As you can imagine I have attended many courses through my hairdressing career from classic cutting to advanced cutting at Sassoon’s to advanced colouring at Wella studios in bond street, as well as being trained by Sassoon trained stylists. I have done stage work at Salon International as well as training a number of local hairdressers. I was one of the first technicians in the area to become qualified in Great Lengths Hair Extensions
