Introducing our talented hairdressing team

Anthony Jacobson

Anthony Jacobson – Salon Director

Salon Director Anthony fulfilled a long-held dream when he opened Salon Messina in 2013. With over 17 years of experience in the hair industry he hand-picked a team of artistic individuals to create one of Rayleigh’s finest hair salons.

At the top of his game, Anthony’s trend-setting flair and passionate approach have earned him a loyal client base for both cuts and colour.

Colour is his first love to which he brings a fresh and innovative approach. Constantly honing his creative skills, Anthony’s clients love his fashion-forward colour palettes and ground-breaking techniques.
