A wonderful little gem - Edit

I went to The Rabbit Hole for the first time during a recent holiday in London, from Italy- my sister had her hair done, mine is a few millimetres short, and for the very first time in almost 12 year I wished I had longer hair so that Dori could do her magic on mine too. We had a lovely time at The Rabbit Hole and my sister is extremely happy with my new hair cut - it was worth every pound.
Dori has professional skills and natural talent, plenty of both, and a glowing passion for her job and for the vegan lifestyle. She knows how to bring out the best from every hair and face.
It felt almost incredible to be in a hair salon where every product was cruelty free, the magazines to read were vegan themed, and you're offered vegan biscuits and coffee while waiting (for a very short time). Dori even rushed to a shop nearby to buy almond milk because she had run out of it!
She's also a nice girl, very welcoming and very kind, she took care to speak slower so we could understand better. She really make you feel vell taken care of. We had a nice chat to begin with, and Dori respected my sister's opinions and did what we had agreed - not to be said of every hairdresser! My sister got the perfect version of what she was looking for, a short bob with slightly retro air, very easy to manage at home. Her hair is growing without losing its shape, just as Dori said.
The place is really magical, cozy and very cute, everything is so charming, and I loved every detail. A little gem hidden behind a small yellow door.

Pros: High quality service 360°, Great atmosphere, Easy to reach

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

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

Simply Excellent - Edit

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

Personal Service - Edit

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! - Edit

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!

An absolute Gem!! - Edit

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

It's a kind of magic - Edit

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

Heaven! - Edit

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 - Edit

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!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! - Edit

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! - Edit

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 - Edit

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! - Edit

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

Amazing! - Edit

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!

Cons: NONE

Everything is good! - Edit

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
