Paul Cox

Stylist, Barber

Joint owner of Atherton Cox, Paul Cox, has worked in the hairdressing industry for over 25 years. Unsure of what career path to take, Paul thought it would be fun to work with a friend at a small salon in Croydon and much to his surprise he discovered a natural talent and passion for hair. Never in a million years did he imagine that it was the start of a long, successful career that would see him become the co-owner of a top London salon.

Trained at the world’s leading salon of its time, Vidal Sassoon, Paul spent six years perfecting his skills under the tutorship of the best in the business. It was here that his attention for detail and desire to be the best was instilled and even to this day he holds true to the Sassoon mantra of ensuring that ‘your worst on your worst day is the best others give on their best’. After working at Shipton & Leighton for six years and building a reputation for his precision cuts, the opportunity arose in 2001 for Paul and business partner Lisa Atherton to take over the business. With a combination of drive, determination and hard work, Paul and Lisa have built Atherton Cox into the hair and beauty destination it is today. Whilst still enjoying the buzz of the salon floor, Paul’s aspirations now lie in building the Atherton Cox brand and creating opportunities for his staff, or family as he prefers to refer to them as, to enjoy the same successes he has achieved.
