The House of Rush is a new upmarket flagship from the high street coiffeurs. So upmarket in fact, that the premises of this shiny beacon of beauty are slap bang in the middle of London’s Mayfair. At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking that the House of Rush was modelled on the house of Liberace, as the flamboyant interior is very much designed to fit in with the glitzy décor of the postcode. But the combination of monochrome floor-tiling, gilded mirrors, back lit displays and chandeliers offer just the right amount of bling for when you’re feeling in the mood to indulge.

Service is seamless with staff communicating via Madonna-ish headsets in order to announce your arrival– more like stepping onto the red carpet than into a spa. The salon overlooks the buzz of Piccadilly, but for those wanting to get away from the hubbub, the beauty area, including Elemis and Rodial treatment rooms, remain separate from the snipping and the clipping. On exit, a quote from fashion maven Vivienne Westwood is printed on the wall reading ‘everything that gives pleasure is worth doing well’. It looks like the House of Rush have taken this maxim to heart.

After having many bad hair experiences in top hair salons, it was a breath of fresh air to find Nita at Rush. An amazing experience, and knew exactly how to work with my afro hair. Had the best keratin blowdry and a cut that made my hair so healthy and sleek. Definitely recommend!!!!

I have been going to Tash to have my haircut for about a year and a half now, and the quality and attention to detail of the haircut has never once dipped below fantastic.

I would highly recommend her to any of my friends.

Friendly, hilarious and professional to the last.

I will not be changing my stylist anytime soon.

 I was in to see Tash to get highlights and a cut and thought everything was brilliant. I thought I'd never find a stylist that was as good as my previous one - but it looks like I've hit the jackpot. The salon is gorgeous and I felt taken care of from the second I walked in to the second I walked out. And I walked out happy - which is always a rarity for me leaving a salon :) Will definitely be back!

I did not need much, just root color. I asked the colorist to do my root the same exact color as my natural color. He proposed doing something lighter, I said no, my natural color. He apparently thought lighter was better. Then the person who dried my hair was able to make any volume my hair could have disappear. I stopped her in the middle because I was concerned she was just really making my hair flat and asked for a bit volume. She could not care less, she continued just the same. I said to the receptionist I was not happy, I was about to cry, and his answer was that's life and then he asked for £60. It's expensive for an ugly color I did not want, flat hair that make me look a wet dog and the attitude of the staff.

You wear your hair everyday which is why it is so important to find a good hair stylist that you trust and like. Tash at the House of Rush is by far the best hair stylist I have ever had and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. I never feel rushed or uncomfortable. She has great style and not only am I always happy with my cut but I look forward to my next visit. She creates a great experience with her personality, passion and precision and I can't recommend Tash enough.

I was desperate because of my hair, hiding from ppl because I was embarrassed of my hair (I'm not joking!). But let me say everything is possible, I went to the The House of Rush and Tash fixed my hair. Definitely best hairdresser ever, finally I found someone who I can trust and not be scared of!!

The venue as well is high quality

Tash is the best colour specialist and my style guru! I have been a client for 3 years plus and always come out feeling a million dollars, she is welcoming, kind, smiley, enthusiastic and a true professional. She certainly knows her stuff! 

I wouldn't trust or waste my time going anywhere else! She has saved me from long thing lifeless hair to a complete transformation, currently rocking a fashionable, sexy Alexa chung long choppy ombre!  Each time I go to Tash, we try something different, she knows exactly what suits my face and her colour technique is magic, I don't have roots, none at all. I am strawberry blonde kinda gal and so many previous hairdressers get it wrong! Simply Fabulous! Keep up the fab work Tash and House of Rush staff! xx

A really great service in laser hair removal!! 

I bought a series of treatments here and its completely changed my daily routine. The results have been fantastic and Charlotte who treated me was so knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that was looking to get laser hair removal- the expertise and equipment they use are second to none and they make you feel really at home.


Ive already booked other treatments and look forward to going back soon :-)

Everyone MUST go to the The House Of Rush!! It's absolutely amazing interior and fantastic staff are treat in itself.

I've experienced a complete redo, going from long lifeless hair to a modern pixie cut by the wonderful Cameron and his skills are out of this world! Whilst I was there a beautiful therapist came over to talk about services they offered, the Epsom skin clinic which now have combined with this rush offer an amazing variety of treatments, I decided to go for a combined facial of a Vitamin C peel and microdermabrasion both of which sound a little scary but was completely put at ease by my calm natured therapist Nicole, her indepth explanations immediately made me relax and my skin has never felt and looked so good!

All in all i will definitely be returning and telling everyone about this place!! :)

The team at The House of Rush in Piccadilly are very experienced and friendly. Nita is a natural and very talented hairdresser who pays alot of attention to detail, I highly recommend booking in an appointment with her. I really appreciate her taking her time and asking me questions about what I like and don't like about my current hair cut. As I have a bob and a fringe, it is sometimes hard for hairdresser's to get such a simple haircut right. I have always felt great after leaving the salon. Rush also off a free fringe trim service at anytime at any salon if you your haircut with them.

Tom W

I am always skeptical about going to a new hairdressers but Nita did a great job and I have been going back to her ever since. She has a great upbeat personality and you can see she takes pride in her work! She's full of ideas for different hair styles to suit her clients needs. One word I would use to describe Nita... Perfectionist .

Christina B

I've been traveling around the world to find a solution for my afro hair and to be honest I couldn't find better results. Rush salon holds an amazing gem, a young talented girl filled with passion in her eyes. I happily travel to Miss Nita every 4 months to get my hair done. Amazing job, my problem is officially solved!

Mandy O

I have been having my hair by Nita since October 2013, same year I moved to London from South Africa. Nita is an amazing hairdresser and knows exactly what style and colour looks good on me. I recently had a drop in salary but refuse to have my hair done by anyone else. I will continue having my hair done by Nita as long as she is part of Rush!

Aminata K

Me and Nita go wayyyy backkk.. I remember the days when we left school and she decided to pursue hair. Little did we know she would become the star she is, specialising in both European and Afro Caribbean hair.

Now I'm super skeptic about who touches my hair, but I've never given Nita a second thought! I recently went for a shoulder length bob with a heavy side fringe and let's just say, Nita hooked me up NICELY!!! Thanks again hun x

Amine W

Having a unique type of hair, somewhere between afro and curly, I always had such a hard time finding a good hair dresser that would know exactly what to do without spending the whole afternoon doing so... and then I found this amazing place with the best hair stylist ever! Nita is really an expert of afro hair, she did a great job and I really recommend to anyone her talented pair of hand. Service is excellent and the place looks dashing!

Frank C

I've known Nita for quite some time but never knew much about her ability with hair. However after visiting Nita at rush a few weeks back I now know where to go if I want some deep waves or loose curls. It's not easy to find someone who understands y type of hair and what I want done with it. Nita did a great job I highly recommend!

Mozz J

Ive always been skeptical about getting my hair cut because im never satsfied with the results but i can honestly say Nita did a great job on handling my hair providing it with a stylish cut and treatment. I would recommend her to anyone in the same boat as me. She is great.

Sim D

I love the House of Rush. I get my hair done by Nita, the Afro hair specialist there. You can't help but to love her upbeat personality and her knowledge about Afro hair. She revives my hair with an amazing treatment while I relax on heavenly massage chairs! I always walk out with amazing looking hair and feeling refreshed!

Patricia D

I have black/ afro hair and I've come to Rush for colouring, weaves, and texturisers and haven't been disappointed once. My stylist Nita knows exactly what she's doing and I trust her completely. Also, the service is great!

Annina L

I have natural, tightly curly afro hair and have always been very skeptical about going to hairdresser's as many have found it difficult to style my hair in its natural state. But I've been going to Nita, an afro hair specialist at Rush, for over a year and a half and my hair has never been in better condition. The customer service and staff in the salon are always excellent. As far as Nita, I couldn't recommend her skill and services highly enough. She understands how to shape and cut afro hair in a way that is not only current and stylish but also manageable. My hair has grown so much and isn't prone to the tangling and dryness I battled with before. From start to finish the experience of getting my hair cut is a pleasure rather than the chore it felt like before. They offer a variety of treatments that help condition your hair and Nita is very careful about being delicate when styling afro hair. I couldn't recommend Nita or Rush highly enough, it may be slightly more expensive than other salons but you and your hair definitely benefit from the experience.

Just had a great mens haircut at The House of Rush, really great atmosphere, very relaxing and was really looked after

The first time I came to rush I was a little nervous as I've had a few hair disasters in the past.

My stylist was Tash, she was so welcoming and confident that it was infectious.

Tash took the time to sit down and listen to what I wanted, she also recommend what would suit me best. She is so passionate about hair I couldn't wait to begin and change my look.

I also was told about all the treatments they have on offer and ladies you can not go wrong with the 3 step treatment it makes you hair look and smell fantastic!!

Tash is completely professional and just by the way she works you know she has tons of experience. She also makes you feel like your her friend.

My hair looked fantastic after my first visit and a year on it just keeps looking better. I use all the correct products for my hair now because thanks to Tash I finally understand why I should. I don't know how she does it but She always has a new idea on what would look good on me!

So if your looking for a great cut and colour, by a fantastic hairdresser who is passionate and genuine, look no further than going to see Tash!

Perhaps the best haircut I've had in my 26 years. Excellently cut and styled by Tash. The ''House of Rush'' is a sumptuous pleasure. Will definitely return and would definitely recommend.

Marko A

Hello!

Had my first hair cut at Rush today. Tash was great - and left me looking a lot tidier! I'll be sure to visit again :)

Nicola T

Beautiful salon! Really friendly and welcoming staff. Tash did my cut and blow dry. Her knowledge on hair quality is amazing and I loved the cut. Her confidence in hair meant I could sit back and relax knowing I was in good hands. I will definitely go back! In a rush! ;)

Matthew B

I have nothing but good things to say about this place. It makes having my hair cut a pleasure and compared to other london salons very affrodable. Ben especially gave me an amazing cut this time.

MJ

Please please please avoid this place if you have afro hair. My hair was destroyed by a careless relaxer here, literally had massive bald patches. It is growing back but will take years to recover. The most expensive relaxer I've ever had, and by far the worst.

DONT BOTHER This salon is in an expensive part of london, however they are part of a large chain. Very average cut and poor colour service or what i could have paid a fraction of the price for at my local salon. They charge for water, aggressive add on sales. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

Mel

I've just had my second and last treatment at House of Rush, now having been there twice and been conned twice. I know the square footage must be expensive, but their tactics are so cynical, i have a thoroughly bitter taste in my mouth. AVOID.
