I tried this using the validation rule: ISPICKVAL(Salutation, "") but this then also applies to the standard Account object. I just need this for Person Accounts so can this be restricted even more?

There should be a boolean field IsPersonAccount which can be used to check if the current record is a person account or not.

    i.e. IsPersonAccount && ISPICKVAL(Salutation, '').
