We have PRESSED PAUSE and our services are on hold for a while as we temporarily close our Hornchurch salon.

After much consideration we have taken this necessary action to ensure we do the right thing and keep our team and clients safe in these unprecedented times.  

For now, all appointments are on hold and we are unable to reschedule until it is safe to do so. 

Please bear with us whilwe take some time out to plan for the future.  Our doors are closed, the answerphone is on and we will contact everyone who has an appointment as soon as we have news. 

We will endeavour to keep everyone up to date through our website, Facebook, Instagram and client email communications.   

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my wonderful team and loyal and supportive clients – your understanding is truly heart-warming. 

Keep safe, grow your roots.  Your hair will be here when this is over, sadly many lives wont.  

We will be back soon.

  • I’ve always had my haircut here, and have different people every time because I’ve always had a brilliant cut. I’m confident that any of the stylists will give me an excellent cut and they’re always warm and welcoming.

  • Hello.

    I've been coming to the vanilla rooms for about 20 years now
    and am always really pleased with how my hair concerns are listened to and I'm always happy with the result.

    Yesterday I had to bring my daughter who is 5 and they really kindly washed her hair and dried it off as she wanted to be like me! . She had a gown put on and she was absolutely delighted to be just like mummy ! it really made her day.

    So thank you very much, both of us appreciated the gesture very much.

  • Just had the best haircut I've had in years with the lovely Kirsty in Hornchurch. I am a complete hairdresser-phobe and have tried many hair salons over the years but she has now restored my faith in hairdressers. I don't need to go anywhere else now. Thank you so much Kirsty xx

  • I have been going to the Vanilla rooms in Hornchurch for over 20years! So that speaks volumes to the service that they provide. I have been with Emma S all the way along and I am always very happy with my highlights and cut, she is a fantastic art director. I also had my wedding hair done by Scott and was so pleased with the results. Would highly recommend!
