What we can do for you
Whether it’s subtle or striking, soft or sculpted, our Aveda qualified stylists can create almost any look, colour or effect that you might be keen to try.
Using Aveda's naturally derived organic products and the latest techniques, we can cut, colour, style or treat your hair so that you leave us with it looking and feeling in great condition.
In addition to traditional cutting and colouring, our stylists can restyle, correct colour or apply a new effect such as balayage. If you would like a free wedding hair consultation or are going to a ball, prom or other special event and have a particular look in mind, please pop in to talk to us about what you would like.
We’re always happy to chat through your options with you, and can even book ‘trial runs’ if you would like.
Getting the best from your visit to Vanilla White.
If you have not had a technical service from us before, please remember that we cannot proceed without an allergy test, which has to be done at least 48 hours ahead of your appointment.
We offer additional optional treatments for both women and men and they range in price from £5 to £15. Our Pramasana scalp care treatment is a popular intense scalp treatment, while Invati is great for thinning hair.
Please also don’t forget the free three hour parking facility in the Churchill Court car park.
If you would like to buy a gift for family or friends, Vanilla White gift vouchers are available from £5 upwards and can be redeemed towards any of our services and Aveda hair and styling products.
