-The salon is swanky without being intimidating.
-The haircutting is trendy without being twatty.
-The cost is a bit spendy without being unreasonable.
I’m sure you could walk out of this place with a hairstyle that’s fit to take you straight to a Hackney dive bar if you wanted. But when I came in and asked for a trim and a bit of a restyle to amp up the ‘cool’ factor of my current look, the stylist (Paris) gave me just that. My hair’s suitable for my day job at the bank while still managing to make me feel like I’m hip to the beat.
The little things: The beautiful boy with blue eyes* working front of house exuded friendliness, was quite accommodating and had a wonderful smile. The wash was relaxing and unhurried. As for the cut: Paris took his time while snipping away at my locks and explained the things he was doing as he did them. If I had wanted to object, I could have – something to note if you’re a picky customer. He used a treatment oil on my ends before he blow dried my hair and then finished off the cut and meticulously trimmed my fringe. He cut my hair in such a way that the end result was suitable for both my hair type and my lifestyle; I appreciated that. He also used the Bumble & Bumble products I mentioned I had at home when he went to style my hair at the end.
A week on, I like my haircut better than I did on the day, I admit, but that’s always the way with me. Therefore, I’d call my visit to Vision a resounding success. Would I return for another haircut? Quite possibly. If that same front-of-house boy welcomed me with his charming smile? Most definitely.
Well I have to say these guys are fantastic. I wasn’t actually expecting much as I though it would be a snobby Shoreditch twat hair spot but actually they are fantastic. They made me feel comfortable and they asked me how I liked it all the way through. It was a really enjoyable hour I spent in here. I have new hair and am a happy lady! £35 was pretty fair for the service too!
Great cut and friendly and patient service as I was quite nervous about having quite a different cut from usual and kept repeating what I wanted and didn’t want. Left the salon looking (even if I do say so myself) rather fantastic. After washed it though I thought it needed a couple of adjustments, called Egon and we arranged for me to pop back in and get it ammended. No extra charge and he even offered me the option of another shampoo first (which I said wasn’t necessary). Recommended.
My first visit to Vision is now behind and I still own a very classical haircut. Thank god. I was a bit scarred as this place has so innovative reputation to say the least. But the Vision was more down the earth and with nice and relaxed atmosphere and cool music offered by the neighbour Rough Trade records. I was offered coffee and mince pies while having all the top fashion magazines on my lap. Sometimes you just need to pamper your self. Great stylist. I am definitely going to visit Egon again.
This is a really relaxing place to be. Good tunes, good people and good skills. Always happy with my hair cut. I’ve been going for over a year and won’t be going anywhere else, so long they hold on to my stylist… Eri, she awesome!
My girlfriend dragged me away from my local barbers to get my hair cut properly at this place a few months ago and despite my reluctance to go anywhere that gives you head massages and a glass of wine I have to say the local barber won’t be seeing me again. I have a double crown and bits which stick up in odd directions so instead of having any kind of style I’ve always just had “number 1 on the sides and back, bit longer on the top” but now I know how to use sumotech from bumble and bumble properly I have an actual style. It costs about twice as much as the barber but I only go half as often now. They also have the best background music in London!
