  • Bespoke real hair replacement

  • Hair extensions

  • Hair loss concealment

  • They are the best hairdressers I have ever had. Extremely fussy who cuts and colours my hair (count on one hand the hairdressers I have had) and George, by a mile is my go to girl. I get so many compliments on my style and colour and have recommended many people who now use this hairdresser. I cannot wait for my appointment. Had one booked just before lockdown 😢. My hair is in desperate need of George’s magical hands xxx

  • My daughter box dyed her hair black then wanted to revert back to blonde !!! Thank you to Kerry and her team my daughter has been transformed by stripping the hair, then gentle hi-lites and hair gloss applied. The result is breathtaking and she is so happy. Highly recommend using the vanilla rooms 5 star service

  • My friend who has been coming to The Vanilla Room for years now recommended it to me. Her balayage looked so nice so I wanted to get my hair coloured too. Christie did a lovely job and the colour was so nicely blended. However, it was more subtle than I was hoping for so Christie said I could come back for a 'top up' free of charge if I wasn't happy. I felt like I was being a right pain going back but they are all so welcoming. When I went back last weekend, Sam dyed my hair and she also did a great job and it was a bit bolder this time which is what I wanted. I'm really pleased with my caramel balayage! Thanks ladies 🙂

  • 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.
