I worked in the George Street salon for about 6 months after leaving Sassoons in Manchester in 1977. It was my first job in London and i loved it. I lived in the same house as John in Balham for a while which was great fun. there were some really nice people there. Trevor, Anthony, Rocky to name but a few. Stephan was great in the kitchen, always giving us credit.

I rember sitting in the yard at the back of the saloon hearing 10cc I am not in love had just been released.I was Ricci junior at George street but was sent to kings road for having sex with Joanna the the sofa I must have been 16 at the time.
Oliver was manager at kings road and I am sure that you Frances was second in charge I rember when Ricci got into trouble he called you to say everything was going to be okay until that point we all thought we would be made redundant.

I was just a client at Ricci Burns’ Kings Road salon in the early 1970s. I went there be cause Mick Jagger was a client and I liked the apparently unstructured but of course carefully cut look. One day Bianca Jagger came in just after Ricci had started my cut, so I got ‘bumped off’ but Trevor took over and my cut was free that day!

My name is Janet, worked at Ricci Burns george st 1975/77.fantastic memories
Adam Green 11-Dec-2018 00:36
My name is Adam and I started working at Ricci Burns George Street in 1980, I became Ricci’s junior and continued to work there while and after it was transformed into high tech white, Trevor, Anthony, John, Steve, Paul, Sally, Claire all fellow staff to name a few, what a great and interesting place to work. I went on to work at Trevor Anthony in Blandford Street where I actually became a hairdresser !
Guest 31-Oct-2018 00:43
Hi my name is Pat and i used to work at the florist in george street Daniel's Flowers,chocolates and Gifts we used to do display's for Ricci and his mum was nearly always on the reception desk and she would tell us in no uncertain terms if she did'nt like the displays but those were such good days
Andrew Thompson 12-Sep-2018 10:44
I worked in the George Street salon opposite Burns Dress shop back in the mid 1980’s, June was the manager, a lovely girl who I think lived in Kent. Others there were David who mysteriously disappeared and went overseas I think, Paul with the thin moustache, Jo in the colour dept and others who I cannot recall. “ Mrs B” who was something of a legend will always stick in my mind. Clients I recall were Gail Ronson, one of Ricci’s Biggest patrons, Jean Muir who was very sweet albeit a bit quirky, Sian Phillips and numerous others. The dreaded white uniform was a nightmare ( black would have been so much more forgiving 🙄) and the constant struggle NOT to get anything on it. Happy memories for me, I got on very well with Ricci, I liked him immensely. I’ve never forgotten my time there even now some 40 odd years later.
Stephanie 28-Aug-2018 15:22
Hi,
My name is Stephanie. Paul was my hairdresser for about 13 years. First at kings road and then George Street. I lost touch with him about 30 years ago. I would love to hear from anyone who knows his whereabouts. I always wondered what became of him. Last I heard was that Denholm (Elliot) wanted to open a salon with him in Spain. Sadly he passed away in 89 I think. I also used to have my highlights done by a number of people including Jo. She had long dark curly hair and was always so meticulous. They were great days '75 - late 80's. I have a photo. taken in The salon of Paul and three other guys. Not sure the other guys names. This was taken before Ricci sold the business. I still used to go after this but it wasn't the same. I have such fond memories of those days and Paul always made me feel special even though I was not one of the celebrity clients who frequented the place.
Guest 09-Jun-2018 08:02

I also worked at Ricki Burns, George Street. 1985 left to work in Harrods then came back 1987. David was the manager. Paul and I were good friends and Martin and Jo and Ken, Margarita and Lisa. Great salon. Fantastic memories.
Paul 30-Dec-2017 17:23
I worked for Ricci in George St as a junior and later as a stylist in the very early ‘80’s
I remember Paul very well. I am also called Paul, so I had to change my name
to avoid confusion. I chose Marc. I suppose I may have been a fan
of Mr Almond around that time. Also remember David Fiona Vicki Sharon to name
a few. Also Mrs B of course. I was just 17 or 18. 53 now. Where did it all go.
Guest 06-Sep-2017 20:20
Linda I think I was there at the same time ,remember Sue Caplin very well and Juliet . Did you want to do modelling and Mrs B was trying to talk you out of it. I was Riccis junior at the time.
Are you in contact with Sue or any of the others .fantistic times .
Hope life has been good to all .
