Fishtory

In 1987, hairdresser and entrepreneur Paul Burfoot bought 30 D'Arblay Street, an old sex shop, and set about converting it into a salon. While renovating, Paul exposed beautiful art deco tiles revealing that the shop was once a fishmonger's - and so 'Fish Hairdressing' was born.

Since then, Fish Hairdressing has seen and done a lot; from styling Kate Moss to launching a hair wax into Harrods. For a bit more on our Fishtory, view our timeline below.
