Amazing experience, so much more than just a hair cut. My appointment began with a complimentary head, neck and shoulder massage which set the tone for a relaxed and pampered time at Vanilla. All staff went the extra distance to make sure that I felt pampered and special. My stylist, Selina, listened to what I wanted and gave me the cut which met my brief and more. I was made to feel as if I was the only customer in the salon having been given time, attention and great courtesy. Please open a salon in Cumbria!!!!

A great place to get to get good advice. Vanilla look after you and your hair. The Aveda products are amazing too. They are not cheap but they last a long time & they put your hair in top condition.

Best hairdressers I've ever been too!!! Recommend it to everyone...I love the complementary massage and you get your own personal teapot when you have a cup of tea and last of all you get a foot stool to put your feet up while your having your hair washed!! I am using the hair products they recommended at home and I can see such an improvement!! I travel 45 miles to use this hairdressers and it's worth every penny to me.
