about our

bondi beach salon

dan-dixon-chop-shop-bondi-beachWhat began as Dan Dixon’s one man show on a small vacant lot somewhere between Potts Point and Kings Cross has now become one of Sydney’s most innovative salon brands.  Welcome to Bondi Chop Shop and Mister Chop Shop.

Our founder Dan is our “Magna tonsorem”. He had a clear vision in 2005 – a salon brand with no pretension just highly personalised service, great cuts, and stellar products delivered in some of Sydney’s sexiest locations. By 2008 Bondi Chop Shop was born. And then Mister Chop Shop entered the fold in 2015.

Of course, we didn’t do it alone – our suppliers are some of the best in the game. By supporting brands like Kevin Murphy, Olaplex and Layright we stick to the Chop Shop vision – no gimmicks, no fillers just the very best professional ranges for all our clients.

We want our clients to love us just as much as the products we use.

We know our clients are unique they deserve an experience. They live big lives in a beautiful city. Every face is different and every cut we do is to suit. We offer a full grooming style experience.

Whether they are getting their salty locks tamed at Bondi Chop Shop or being clipped and groomed at our ‘brother‘ store Mister Chop Shop we know they love our work.

We even have the awards to show for it.  Wentworth Courier Best & Brightest Business Awards: Winner 2009 & 2012 and Finalist 2010, 2011, 2014.

OK, it helps that we get to work our magic in some of Sydney’s most iconic locations but it is our commitment to individualised service, our skill, our products and our team of hair artists that really makes our clients return.
