The best hairdresser in London - and it's vegan!

Posted on 07 / 18 / 2015

I went to the Rabbit hole for balayage (hand-painted highlights) and a haircut last weekend and I can honestly say I have never looked better than I do now.

I have lost count of how many compliments I've received from my colleagues, students, even strangers come up to me and compliment me!! That has never happened before!!

To tell you the truth, the whole experience was amazing. She has an intuitive understand of what looks good on you. My hair looks so fresh and sunkissed and all I have to do in the morning is to blow-dry it.

I can honestly say I would pay twice the price if I get to look this good, it has made a world of difference for me! I feel like a new person! :-)

But be sure to book in advance because this is one busy hair parlor!

If you're only getting one hair cut this year, let it be at the Rabbit hole. I promise you, you will not regret it!

Pros: Incredible result, Intuitive understanding of hair, Great conversations too
Cons: No cons

The kind of hair salon I have been looking for forever! Could not be happier with the service provided by the Rabbit Hole. The fact it is also such a gorgeous salon is an added bonus. Highly recommend.

Pros: Friendly service, Reasonable price, Animal-friendly products

Loved my experience here at the Rabbit Hole. My hair wasn't in great condition due to a few months backpacking, and now after having a cut and color it is back to normal. Super shiny, soft and luscious! Thanks Dori!

Personal Service

Posted on 09 / 12 / 2014

I had my hair done at TRHVHP a while ago, and it was the first time I've really liked my hair!! I had subtle ombre dip dyed ends, with lots of thinning out, and a trim (I wanted to keep it as long as possible). Dori spoke to me before hand, to work out what would work best with my hair, my natural colour, and how I normally style it.

Pros: Personal Service, Cruelty Free Products
Cons: Slightly 'Out Of The Way'

Best hair of my life!

I’ve just had my second appointment with Dori, and I can’t help but rave about her. Dori is the most personable stylist I’ve ever had with the cutest Alice in Wonderland themed salon. As she is the only stylist in the salon, I get an amazing personalized and private experience. On top of being so friendly, Dori really listens to what I want and helps craft an amazing look. I’ve gotten the best haircuts of my life visiting Dori. The Rabbit Hole is the best salon I’ve ever been to hands down, and it is simply a bonus that it is completely vegan with such a great stylist. She posts before and after photos of her cuts and colours on the salon’s Facebook page which is certainly worth a look if you’re interested!

I'll probably regret posting this because I won't be able to get an appointment again :-)

Dori just knows what she's doing. Great hairdresser and colourist and I'm a fussy cow. She really listens and then actually does what you agreed she would do.

Got lots of compliments for cut and colour.

Goes without saying that I love that everything is vegan

Very Happy With First Visit to The Rabbit Hole

5
Posted on 11 / 21 / 2013

I finally have my natural brown hair colour after years of it turning out with orange tones. £60 and I have a lot of hair.
The salon was warm and like going into a Victorian room with really comfy chairs.
My son also had a fringe trim and is really happy with it after having previous disasters in the past.
Dori really does listen and know what she's doing, can't wait to go back for a cut soon.
We had two cups of lovely strong tea with almond milk and jammie dodger style biscuits as well.
It was so relaxing to be somewhere vegan and with someone so nice and talented.
Very easy to get to, lots of buses and tubes to Goldhawk Road and Shepherds Bush.
I hope Dori opens another salon that does vegan waxing too then we'll have no need to go anywhere else.

Pros: Friendly, Get what you ask for, Vegan

It's a kind of magic

5
Posted on 11 / 02 / 2013

Dori was able to work with my extremely thick and rebellious hair right from the first appointment. Her cut, together with high quality shampoo and conditioner, have created a fantastic style that's easy for me to manage and transformed the texture of my hair. I know that it's really Dori's skill and expertise, but it feels like magic!

I love that everything in the salon is vegan, and the 'Alice in Wonderland' theme is so cute. Dori is lovely, and it's great to be able to talk to someone about all things vegan. I often treat myself to a nail varnish while I'm there - they're vegan too!

Dori often posts photos of her work on Facebook, so you can see some of the styles that she's created. In my experience she has great intuition about not only what will work with her clients' hair and look good, but what will suit their personalities and lifestyles. I wholeheartedly recommend that you make an appointment!

Pros: Excellent service, Vegan drinks & biscuits, Pretty salon
Cons: None

I found her blog before I found her through other veggie sources and I remember thinking "This girl knows how to do hair!" and loved seeing all the transformations. When I got to finally making my own hair appointment, I realized that she was only a few minutes walk from me which was incredible!

Dori always makes you feel so comfortable and happy, she is just an absolutely joy to know. I feel like I can trust her with more than just my hair! She is an absolute professional in every sense and I respect her so much for starting her own (and probably the very first) all vegan hair salon! She takes care of more than just our hairdos, she's an incredibly sweet animal loving warrior!

Dori is definitely a chic, modern incredibly cool vegan so you know that you're going to get a result exactly like that! Who says being vegan was uncool? I love the way she blow dries hair, its perfect and not momsey or mushroomy at all and awww, I wish I could keep her to myself and have her travel with me everywhere but I am super pleased that she is able to share her gift with lots of other people!

If you are in London, go have a chat, a fabulous hair makeover with Dori! You will love it :)

Pros: Friendly, Professional service , Incredible quality in hair&conversation!, Bikkie and Tea! yum
Cons: We need more Doris in the world!

Top hair experience

Posted on 10 / 22 / 2013

I went to The Rabbit Hole today after seeing Dori at Vegfest.
It was such a treat. It is a wholehearted great experience knowing that everything is vegan- from the lovely complimentary coffee with almond milk (and biscuit)to the gorgeously fragranced products. The decor is filled with charm. I have never felt so listened to before and Lori put right a not-great haircut I'd had and is highly skilled and creative.
This is a little trek across London but absolutely and utterly worth it!

Dori is such a gifted women! I had the pleasure of being under her talented hands during my time in London. Her place is beautiful and worm. She was attentive and understood exactly what I wanted to do with my hair. In addition, she gave me so much cool tips for visiting the vegan London places in my trip. I recommend all you vegan girls to go and visit her!!!
So thanks again Dori! - Ayala from Israel

The Rabbit Hole - hair and so much more!

5
Posted on 08 / 19 / 2013

Having been vegetarian for 24 years, it was time to take the next step in the cruelty free journey and go vegan. I hadn't had my hair cut for six months, was biding my time to find the right hairdresser, both professionally and morally. It was soo worth the wait!
Dori is utterly professional and has a total passion for cutting, not to mention a collaborative hairdressing process. She even came in on her day off and gave me the full 'Rabbit Hole Experience'. For that is what it was!
Sharing a plethora of information on vegan cooking with me, cruelty free companies and products, all the while pampering me with an utterly professional cut and colour, tea and biscuits, I can truly say that in my trip to the Rabbit Hole I was reconnected to my authentic self inside and out!

Pros: Unique setting, immaculately clean., Highly professional cutter and colourist, Not just a haircut - an experience!

London's #1 Hair Salon

Posted on 07 / 20 / 2013

I have a lot of hair and I love it. So I don't trust many people (anyone) with it :)

That was until I met Dori. For the past year she has delighted me each time with her hairdressing skill and kind personality. The Rabbit Hole is an oasis in the middle of west London. Open the hidden front door and fall down the rabbit hole of beautiful hair!

With 100% organic and cruelty-free products (everything from your cup of welcoming tea, to the gorgeous, rich conditioner) The Rabbit Hole is an absolute delight.

Be sure to make a reservation with her before hand on Twitter: http://twitter.com/veganhairsalon

Pros: 100% vegan, Skill and talent, Great location and decor

Just what the hair doctor ordered!

Posted on 07 / 03 / 2013

Having had long, natural colour hair for years, I was tired of the hassle and wanted to go back to the short, shaggy red style I had a decade ago. I showed Dori a few pictures and picked a colour from the chart, and then leaned back to enjoy a cup of tea. Dori made sure she understood exactly what I wanted before the cut, and the result was great: my fine, straw-coloured, flat hair was transformed to a textured, "wild" red cut which looks so much fuller, healthier and vibrant than the boring old look. This style is a keeper - I'm never going back to long hair!

Pros: Friendly, Good products

Dori the sweetheart fit me in on short notice despite the fact that it was her birthday!! She did wonders with my flat, brittle & broken hair, it now feels fuller & healthy. The quirky salon has a great atmosphere and I was ecstatic to finally find somewhere completely vegan. Thanks so much dori!

Pros: Talented hairdresser, Friendly & calm atmosphere, VEGAN!

Everything is good!

Went there yesterday - thankfully Dori does Sundays! Was treated to tea with almond milk (which worked rather well, I thought) and a vegan biscuit. Superb! Great salon space, excellent products and the cut and colour I had were just fantastic. I have plenty more praise words up my sleeve, but go and find out for yourself. It really is as good as people say. x

I got my hair cut here yesterday and I love it! Dori is so amazing! I've never felt so well taken care of in any hair salon! I'm visiting London from the states and she even helped give recommendations for vegan stuff around town.

If you're ever in London and in need of a hair cut, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Pros: Very talented, Friendly, Helpful

Best Haircut I've ever received and totally vegan!

Posted on 04 / 28 / 2013

Dori was so lovely to meet! She really took the time to listen to what I wanted (I had dyed my hair black, and wanted it all cut off and back to my natural hair color, which made my hair super short!) She did a WONDERFUL job! She gave me a really feminine and fitting pixie cut. I felt so confident and beautiful in it!
It also helps that she's really nice to talk to, and has great taste in music ;)
Definitely would't get my haircut anywhere else in the UK.

Pros: Vegan!, Talented, Knowledgable
Cons: More people need to know about her!!

A right little vegan Gem!

Had my hair cut at this place yesterday and I'm so pleased with it - never thought I would love having a fringe so much after my old high school basin cut nightmare! (Thank you for talking me into it Dori!) ;-)
This lovely vegan lady has a natural talent for hairdressing and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Dori has a real natural talent and gives your hair the time and attention it deserves to look good. In fact, she totally saved my hair from a disastrous cut I had done somewhere else a few months ago so this gal knows her stuff!

It's such a breath of fresh 'hair' to find a real gem like the Rabbit Hole!

Next time you need your hair cutting London peeps, go here and you won't be disappointed!

Pros: Professional, Unique, Completely VEGAN FRIENDLY!
Cons: It's too hidden away! ;-(
