Christies started as a mens tailors with a barbers upstairs owned by Mr Marshall. It was called Marshalls and was based in Walton-on-Thames high street.
Mr Marshall sells Marshalls barbers to John Christie, he renames the business Christies.
After working in salons in Central London as well as 2 years on the QE2, John Gunner buys Christies barbers from John Christie for the amount of £2500. Over the years he expands the business into ladies hairdressing working with Redken, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent. The salon had 2 stylists, 1 junior and 2 cats called Ginge and JR.
Christies moves to its first Addlestone shop at 155a Station Road. A small salon with 4 styling stations.
Christies moves location to next door at 155 Station Road. The salon had 7 stylists and worked with Kerastasse.
Christies moves up the road to 58 Station Road.
Due to the new Addlestone development, 58 Station Road get demolished and we move to a larger salon at 92b Station Road.
The salon has 14 styling stations, 2 beauty rooms and a sunbed and has 15 members of staff working across the salon. We now work with AVEDA and L’Oreal Professional.
