Lisa AthertonStylist, Barber
Well known for her down-to-earth approach to hairdressing, Lisa Atherton, joint owner of Atherton Cox, has enjoyed over 25 years in the industry. Her career started as a determined and ambitious teenager at the infamous Ricci Burns salon where her natural flair for hair and people shone through.
It was whilst working at this Mayfair salon Lisa’s aspirations grew and her desire to run her own west-end salon one day began. She spent the next 20 years working hard and risking everything to ensure her desire became a reality. Lisa’s natural affinity with people, not to mention her killer results with a hairdryer, has made her the success she is today. With a list of previous clients reading like an edition of OK! Magazine, Lisa has tended the tresses of some of the most glamorous women in the world. But it is her unpretentious nature that makes Lisa popular with both celebrities and the regular woman-on-the-street. Creating styles that make her clients smile no matter what walk of life they are from or how old they are is where Lisa’s expertise lies. After joining Shipton & Leighton in the 1990’s Lisa took over the salon with her business partner Paul Cox and created Atherton Cox. Together they have grown the business from 20 staff to its now 60-strong team and created the hair and beauty destination it is today. Having well and truly exceeded her aspirations, Lisa now focuses on the growth of Atherton Cox and helping team members realise their own personal dreams.
