After 57 years of hairdressing and salon ownership in Australia, the very last Jon Le Court Salon, located in Brisbane, closed last month. Jon has enjoyed an illustrious and successful career in Australian and international hair, training in London in the 1950s before coming to Australia in the early 1960s, and while the salon component of his career is over, new and further opportunities are still in motion.
Jon has been president of the Queensland International Hairstylists Society and has been a member of Intercoiffure, chair of the L’Oreal Peer Groups and operated over 100 salons in his 57 year career. He will now continue to progress Mayo International, his manufacturing company.
“The Garden City Salon was our flagship salon for over 40 years. It’s sad to see it close,” Jon said. “I have had a fabulous life from hairdressing and I’ve worked with literally tens of thousands of people in that time. I am proud that many of those that I worked with over the years have enjoyed much success themselves. I’m 77 years of age and still working every day. I like to think I am a young 77 and, as my work has always been my hobby, I hope to continue with my hair care manufacturing business, Mayo International, for many years yet.”
We tip our hat to a salon business well managed and one that was influential in our industry for over half a century, and keenly await what’s to come.
