  • I can not recommend the service and reception that I receive every time I visit The Vanilla Room highly enough. All staff are welcoming and helpful. I love Emma my stylist who I trust completely. I change my style on a regular basis, but she knows exactly what suits me and what will work with my hair and advises me accordingly. I am regularly complemented on my cuts and have recommended a few friends to use the salon. My teenage daughter is now a fan and is made comfortable and at ease when she sees Sam for her regular cut. The beauty therapist’s complement the salon and I regularly see Jess to have my nails done but have used it for other beauty treatments and seen other therapists. Whether you see someone regularly or if it’s who can fit you in you receive the same excellent customer service. Thank you Kerry - you have an excellent team!

  • I can't get to the Vanilla Room in Brentwood as often as I would like as I spend a lot of time in Italy, and I use a local hairdresser when I'm there. However when I'm back in Billericay I have my hair cut and styled with Sarah in the Brentwood salon and I've always left felling happy with the level of service and happy with how my hair looks. When I lived in Upminster Charlotte in the Hornchurch branch cut and styled my hair. I went every six weeks for about 10 years and loved the whole experience.

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.
