Alex and the Fön crew make it feel like you’re hanging at your cool bestie’s place. The whitewashed interiors effortlessly combine rock n’ roll and industrial vibes, while the offer of freshly popped popcorn is just the right amount of quirky. But what makes this King William Road spot super cool is that it’s South Australia’s first gender neutral salon, so prices are set depending on your hair, not your sex. On our visit, we had a thorough chat with our stylist regarding our hair goals, who then proceeded to check-in at every step to ensure we were happy with the process. The finished result? Let’s just say we were waving off compliments for the rest of the day.

I have been visiting hair salons for over 20 years & I have never had an experience like you get a Fon. My hair has never been better. The stylists are lovely & have an amazing ability to deliver exactly what you ask for in your colour & style. Whilst waiting for your colour to process you are offered all sorts of treats & they have a delicious selection of wine. Fon literally has my heart & hair for life.
FÖN is the best in the (hair) biz in Adelaide. From the warm, welcoming and über talented team, to the fun atmosphere, I always walk out feeling amazing with incredible hair to match.
Couldn’t be happier with the team from FON! Specialised care and attention, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Love the gender neutral pricing policy, very forward thinking. 10/10.
The Fon crew have been doing my hair for over two years now, they get me. I have been every colour possible & had many different haircuts over the last two years. Sometimes I walk in with a clear idea of what I want cut or colour wise & sometimes I just leave it up to them. I am also happy with what they do!
The best team and hair salon in Adelaide. Always walk out feeling faboulous and they serve wine!
I have been seeing Alex for a few years now, she understands me and what suits my hair. Her advice and care is amazing!
I had a great cut… went from long wirey mess before seeing these guys to short sleek beautifully cut hair! Great service will be returning now for all my hair maintenance.
I moved from interstate where I had a great stylist, I was all angsty about finding someone that could keep it up in a adelaide but definitely shouldn’t have been!
Picked these guys because they’re gender neutral, but on top of that they are lovely, have great popcorn and wine, and fab cuts. Highly recommend!!
Fabulous team that get to know you and care, great salon vibe, yummy treats, head massages, lavender towels!! I love this place.. it has me. Always beyond happy x
This place is so on point in every way. Talented team and just down right awesome.
I’ve only been going to Fon for a short time now after being introduced to Alex by my sister-in-law and I must say, I’m so glad we met. Alex and her team not only look after your hair but have the ability and knowledge to colour like no other and create a mean up style too. They are an extremely friendly and loyal team. There is this amazing eclectic vibe when entering the salon, which makes it such a joy to be in and around. The little finer details throughout make them stand out from the rest. Absolute beauties and I can now say, it’s a pleasure to call them friends xx
I moved to Adelaide last year and found FON early on and haven’t bothered to look elsewhere. Alex and the team are so friendly and do a great job. The head massage and hot towels after the hair wash make it feel so luxurious and I always leave feeling at least 10 years younger! I love the touches with the popcorn and the fact it is licensed, if I time it right to have a glass of bubbles!
I’ve been seeing the Fon crew for about 9 months now. I love the atmosphere, people & I always leave feeling amazing with beautiful hair to match.
Leaving my beloved Melbourne hairdresser when I moved to Adelaide was hard because they were of such high caliber.
I searched high and low for a replacement and stopped once I discovered Fon. Everyone there understands what I want and need and they deliver above and beyond my already high expectations.
Love them and their cool and relaxed hair salon – couldn’t recommend them enough.
Alex and her crew are funky, fresh and cool and have a flair for hair. The Salön has such a chic industrial appeal and great tuned to boot. Treat yourself to an alcoholic bevy or sip a coffee/tea and relax, leaving your locks to the experts to make luscious and lovely. Leave feeling super sexy and not stripped of too much cash!
Love your work guys.
FON was the salon I went to for my first colour experience, it was my best hair decision and has never been anywhere else since! Alex has a really passion for hair and colour, she is always teaching me new things about my hair that I never knew about.
Alex is my hair saviour! I’ve been seeing Alex for my cuts for a few years and finally plucked up the courage to get my first colour EVER! Alex knew I was nervous so gave me a natural, subtle balayage that was the perfect step into the colouring world! Since then i’ve been back, and trusting Alex completely she has amped it up! My hair is healthier than it’s ever been thanks to Fön’s product selections. Fön’s clients don’t all leave with the same cut and colour, they leave with the perfect one for them! I love the team work in the salon and getting to interact with the other stylists/colourists/artists Brady and Elena is great.
This hub of hair is Adelaide’s best kept secret. I was lucky enough to stumble across a blowdry special on the mind body app and the hair gods where looking down on me that day. My first blowdry experience was something else, best head massage, hot towels and great attention to detial and just to top it off the energy and staff make you feel at home. Im now a FON forever client.
I am so happy that I stumbled across Fon one day when I was well overdue a new cut and colour, as I don’t think I’ll want to ever go anywhere else! Such a lovely calm atmosphere, great music and, importantly, the best hair cut and colour I can say I’ve had. Very highly recommended.
Amazing little shop, with amazing hairdresser’s.
100% happy from start to finish, they make you feel so comfortable & is a great experience.
Highly recommend paying these guy9a visit.
Alex and her team at Fön Salon are exceptionally welcoming, friendly and as important talented hair dressers! Moving into a new city is always hard but finding some who you trust to colour and style your hair is even more challenging. Fön Salon is a God’s end!!
Never have I walked out of a salon visit after visit so completely satisfied that I haven’t had to run home flick my head into a basin and start again!!
The crew at Fon seriously nail it every time from colour to cut, sensational head massages and wraps and blow drys like they’ve just been pulled from my personal Pinterest boards.
The ultimate form of flattery especially comes from hearing that people I know that have raved about my colour have gone into the salon and asked for “whatever she’s having” it doesn’t get better than that! Oh wait yes it does .. the crew are also super cool, delightful people minus the wank factor and just a great experience all round.
I have always struggled to find stylists who can deal with my thick and unruly hair, but the team at FÖN handle it perfectly and I always walk out stoked with my cut – no mean feat when growung out a buzz cut.
I’ve been hunting for a hairdresser and tried a few really good ones, but sticking with Eleni. Good technichal skill – good eye. Good with colours. She’s beautiful too. Kind and her heart is in it. You can see how much she carefully looks as she is cutting and how she carefully chooses placement for foils as well as choosing toners and colours carefully. As I said, really skilled. I also appreciate that she isn’t rushed and the salon has a nice feel to it too.. not too many clients in at once, good music, heated towels with lavender oil.. beautiful experience all round..
I have been twice and both visits have exceeded expectations. My best hair ever!!
From the moment you ebtre Fon you are made to feel very welcome. A great team, a greta feel and the best result.
Always enjoy catching up with the Fön crew at appointments, and always leave feeling like a superstar. Amazing team.
Excellent colour and cut. Brady does a great job and it is a very relaxing environment. Love the hot towel after the shampoo. Great to be able to have a drink too. Highly recommend for any age group.
The service at Fon is so lovely and the stylists have done wonders with my blonde. I’ve never had such a clean, bright blonde and I can not thank these guys enough!! Thank Fon, for reviving my blonde! <3
Best hair salon experience I have ever had. The team really care about their work and I tell everyone about Fon. I have never had so many people compliment my hair! Love getting my brows done too.
I have never had so many compliments on my hair since going to Fon. Alex gets balayage and my hair has never felt better. The salon itself has a great vibe, and is always playing great tunes thanks to Brady’s play list. I also love the flexibility and that they’re open Tuesday nights- which is great for working parents! I couldn’t recommend Alex and the team at Fon enough.
I’ve been going to Fon Salon for over a year now and always receive the best service… and I bloody love my hair!
Thanks to the team at Fon for their genuine care in going out of their way to transform my hair into healthier, more manageable hair and I’m finally happy with my colour & cut after years of never really being happy with it. So happy I found Fon who provide exceptional, creative & individualised service and products
We are so happy to have found a place where our hair and is looked after long term. With curly coloured hair and two child who have completely different hair we needed a salon where we were all looked after. My colour has never looked better and the day to day maintenance of my hair has become easier since finding Fon!! Hooray for being listened to and being allowed to ask questions about my hair!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE FON!!!! Blow dry last over a week. Highly recommend
I have always put off booking in for a hair appointment as I don’t usually enjoy the salon experience. Fon has changed this for me and my hair has never been better. Alex understands different hair types and not only cuts to suit but also teaches you how to style it on a daily basis. The stylists are friendly and understand each customer is different. I could not reccommend Fon more.
I came across Fon by chance and I’m so glad I did!Alex,Brady and Eleni make you feel really relaxed and at home.Alex is fabulous. Such a great cutter.She always seems to know what cut I’m imagining, which can’t be easy! So glad I found Fon
I am fönd of Fön Salön and I am sure you will be too. They are extremely professional and cater for all ages, even male baby boomers like me! The very first time Alex cut my hair she knew what it would and should should look like. Having only changed hairdresser 4 times, I am not changing any time soon.
I’ve been on the lookout to find a trusted salon to help restore my teenage daughters hair back to a healthy lighter colour after experimenting with the use of a dark box colour and I have finally found a hidden gem. The professional honest advise Eleni has given not just to myself but my daughter too, has been exceptional. A long patient journey to get to the right colour has been well thought out so the colour process remains really gentle to the hair and the best possible outcome will be had, which means one happy teenager.
