Tristan Eves
Creative Director | Read Bio

Salon owner Tristan has enjoyed an illustrious and varied hairdressing career, working with the biggest names in the industry. After an impressive start, which saw him master his craft under the guidance of some of the most influential figures of the time, Tristan opened his first salon at the age of 23, a critically-acclaimed space that he quickly outgrew due to overwhelming demand. He relocated to a popular London salon, building up a celebrity clientele and working as a session stylist. From glossy magazine shoots to backstage work at fashion shows and awards evenings, Tristan’s reputation grew and he was soon headhunted by the legendary John Frieda salon. Television work followed – including Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Make Me A Supermodel – before a ten year stint at Covent Garden salon Stuart Phillips.

In 2015, Tristan began planning his next project. He set up a temporary salon in his kitchen at home, building up a steady client list until he secured the perfect location for his eponymous salon. A run-down Chinese restaurant in the heart of historical Petworth was soon transformed into Tristan Eves, a destination salon offering London-quality hairdressing to style-conscious Sussex and Surrey locals. The salon now boasts over 1000 clients, with appointments with Tristan fully booked up to a month in advance.  

Despite his success, Tristan remains as committed and ambitious as ever.  Aside from his busy client base, his focus is also on providing the highest quality hairdressing education to nurture and inspire the talent of the future.
