David & David Hair Stylists
Jonathan Fulton | Creative Director
Having worked his way up the ranks from Saturday boy to salon owner of David & David, Jonathan has been hairdressing in Plymouth for over twenty years. He has owned Plymouth’s favourite hair salon for eleven years, and many of Jonathan’s loyal clients have followed him throughout his career from one Plymouth hair salon to the next.
Throughout his full and varied career, Jonathan has worked alongside some of the world’s best stylists in an award-winning salon in Sydney, Australia, and undertaken multiple expert cutting and advanced hairdressing courses in Holland and London. He is also highly-skilled in hair colouring and regularly attends advanced colouring and cutting courses to keep at the cutting edge (pun intended!) of his beloved craft. Jon’s clients love his personable nature and the way his passion for top-quality hair styling translates into incredibly beautiful yet manageable hair styles, embodying the salon’s “catwalk to curb” philosophy. Jonathan is an advocate for simplicity, style and fashion in hair – he loves working with all types of hair, but his speciality is for short women’s hair and gent’s hair, as well as being a highly-skilled hair dresser for those fortunate individuals with curly hair in Plymouth. He is one of the very few people in the UK to have been personally trained by the curly queen herself (Lorraine Massey) and is incredibly passionate about curly cutting and caring for curly hair.

Phoebe loves the diversity that hairdressing brings, and she especially enjoys making people feel great about themselves as she creates beautiful and contemporary styles for her clients. Phoebe says, “I love getting to know my clients…when you’re talking through possible new styles the face shape and hair type are key, but its just as important to know what type of person they are as well; the more you know the person, the more you can tailor the style for them, it’s the little details that matter”.

Digby | Pooch About Town
Loveable cockapoo Digby joined the salon family in 2017 when he was a doe-eyed puppy of just 10 weeks old, and has made himself a comfortable fixture of the salon ever since!
Clients love going down to the office to give him a stroke when they come in for their hair appointments, and he loves nothing more than getting some love (and sometimes naughty treats) from all the lovely clients who pay him a visit. Digby loves (chewing) shoes, running on the beach, sleeping and snuggling up with his human dad Jon.
Digby you are pawesome!
Big thanks to Younger Photography for the awesome imagery!
