Rush Hair, Hackney

Since moving to east London earlier this year, I hadn’t really found anywhere local to get my hair done.

So when the team at Rush Hackney got in touch to see if I’d come along for a cut, treatment and blowdry, I was really excited. I’ve been really neglecting my hair, and especially after a week in Italy it was in need of some TLC.

Rush Hackney is located on Amhurst Road, and is super convenient to get to, just a short walk from Hackney Central.

It’s only been around for a month or so now, and I’d popped in on their first week, but they seem to have a solid set up – the staff were all so friendly, welcoming, funny and charming, and really made me feel comfortable and taken care of.


Getting your hair cut by a new person is always a nerve-wracking experience, but my consultation was thorough, and I felt like my stylist new exactly what I wanted, and what treatment my hair needed, particularly as it gets quite dry on the ends.

I went for a long bob, with some beachy waves put in. I have really thick hair, and stylists usually tend to try and cut layers in, which I didn’t really want – but my stylist really listened to what I wanted.


I was absolutely thrilled with the final cut, and the style – my hair is quite heavy, so curls tend to drop fairly quickly, but she tonged my hair really well and it lasted through the night.

The proof of a good cut is always once you’ve taken it out on the road – and even several weeks later I’m getting compliments on it, which has been fantastic.

I would seriously recommend popping in – there’s a really cute courtyard too!

I was invited to Rush Hair for purposes of review - all opinions my own.
  • Finding a good hairdresser really is so stressful, I’m glad you found one you liked, your hair is lovely and thick and I’m glad they didn’t thin it out

    Your hair looks great. I find going to the hairdresser to be quite a stressful experience (more to do with organising childcare) so don’t go very often.
