The Vanilla Room wins not one but two awards

The Vanilla Room in Hornchurch, Essex are more than a good hairdressers. They were recently nominated for two prestigious awards and reached the finals in both. They were nominated for the East London Hair Salon of the Year at The London Hair and Beauty Awards as well as the Best Salon Award at the Essex Salon Awards. To be nominated for both awards was a huge achievement and last week they announced on their social media sites that they had Double Award Success with the following message:

We’re so proud to have won not one, but two awards. Now that we’ve taken a breath, and paused the celebrations we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for your support. It means the world to us to be flying the flag for Hornchurch and LB of Havering. We invest heavily into our teams, professional colour, technical cutting, customer service and homeware. It’s wonderful to be recognised by industry professionals for the hard work and to be named the best of the best !

As well as creating great hairstyles they run a really fantastic apprenticeship scheme, training their staff in the most professional way and making their clients feel completely valued. Not only that but they support local charity and are currently running a poll to see which charity they are going to support next. When we ran our Banana Crumb-Ball they were really generous  giving us several items that we could use in the raffle and helping us to raise an amazing sum of money for our local charity. It is always good to see genuine businesses be recognised for everything they do and I for one think that having a hairdresser you can trust is so important. Long may the Vanilla Room continue doing what has made it the best!!

What is going to be our 2019 Charity of The Year?

After Banana Crumble donated The Cystic Fibrosis Trust £5000 at the end of 2018, it was time to think about 2019. Feedback from the Cystic Fibrosis Trust has been great and so has the feedback in general. Taking this all into consideration and with the number of nominations for this charity it is our pleasure to announce that we will in 2019 make The Cystic Fibrosis Trust our Charity of the Year again.

We hope that with our fundraising again and the unclaimed prizes throughout the year that we will again raise more money to give to The CF Trust. We thought we would remind you of the great adverts that the CF Trust designed specially for us with our Banana characters. Lets hope that we can raise lots of money for them again next year.

Going forward if you you would like to nominate a charity then please contact us at
