  • Thank you so much for rescuing me from the nightmare caused by another Salon. I Walked in with hair that was wrecked and I walked out feeling amazing after all the time they spent doing the corrections. I was not their problem but they took me on board and did everything possible to make me Christmas ready and fitted me in on a crazy day because they had such compassion for my situation ! I simply can not reccomend The Vanilla Rooms more ! This is my go to place now and I'm so grateful for such an amazing salon and the owner especially x thank you so much and Merry Christmas x

  • I had a fantastic experience at the vanilla room Hornchurch. The staff were so friendly and made me feel so welcome! My hair dresser was Scott and I can honestly say he was brilliant! I cut my hair for the princess trust, he knew exactly what way to cut my hair to get the most for the charity. He after cut my hair so nice and I’m so thankful to him as he said as I’m collecting money for charity, the price for the hair cut I would put into the charity. That was so generous of him! I’ll be definitely going back!!!

  • Yesterday I visited Vanilla Rooms for a much needed lockdown locks chop! I felt very safe visiting the salon with all the new covid regulations in place. On arrival I was given a bag with a clean gown in and was able to put my belongings in, lovely cup of coffee in a disposable cup and hand held visor at wash station, all staff in visors. Screens separating all clients and staff cleaning down stations and wash basins after each client. Thank you for the 5 star service Chrissy and team!

  • I've only been going to the Vanilla Rooms Hornchurch for about a year as up until then I had NEVER coloured my hair & a friend recommended going here, must say I was very pleased with the results! I can't remember who did my hair the first time but she was lovely & very reassuring as I was a little nervous. I now go regularly for colour & cuts with Holly and am ALWAYS happy with the end results and the service at the salon.

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Experience. They are very welcoming and understanding about personal needs of the clients. I was unsure of what to do and how to go about with my hair cut but Melody was so accommodating and did a fabulous job with my hair. I feel amazing with my new look. And also got 50% off my price 😃😃😃.

  • 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 can't recommend this salon enough. I have been coming here for over 20 years to get my hair done. The staff are always welcoming and highly professional. Exceptional colour knowledge and expertise. I always walk out with a bounce in my step and of course feeling like I have just stepped out of the salon. 5*
