The Painted Lady
Venue says Book in for a complimentary mini Olaplex treatment (worth £20) with your cut and finish. Mention code 'Love My Hair' when you book.

Located on a street that boasts APC and a Conran Hotel as neighbours, the Painted Lady could be forgiven for going a bit upmarket. However, this gently lit, cute little salon is much more interested than what was going on in 1950s hairdressing than the contemporary Shoreditch scene. As well as contemporary cuts and colour, the stylists at TPL specialise in screen-siren up-dos (£40) like Marilyn waves or Hepburn rolls. They even dispense lessons for groups in retro styling, so you can recreate the magic of the salon in your own bedroom.

Amazing quirky salon! Alice does a beach wave blowdry to die for and it's great being able to get nails and hair done at the same time. Pimms by summer and mulled wine by winter is also a big fave with me.

Simply the best place for nails in London - I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Really cool and friendly retro hair stylist and nail bar. One of the first 'new' shops in the area - long before the rest of the world discovered Shoreditch. Brilliant for cutting and for pin-ups.

So happy and excited for Tina and her team! Good luck ladies!! Totally relaxed atmosphere with a expert finish. Perfect combo.

At The Painted Lady, you'll get a warm friendly reception from Belinda and her team, and your hair expertly cut, dyed and styled exactly to your wishes. Oh, and you can get your nails done there too. All in a rather quirky but cosy salon.

Best haircuts around and Belinda is the best colourist I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Lovely salon with a unique feel that needs celebrating!


I've been mulling over a drastic hair change for a month or two - from a long blue/turquoise dip dye to a sharp and neat 60s bob with a full fringe - and after some recommendations on Instagram, I chose The Painted Lady as they specialise in retro/vintage hairdressing and it was reasonably priced. After a stressful day of moving house, I was welcomed into this cute salon and proffered wine and after a consultation with Katie, she set to work and gave me the bob of my dreams! I have been getting compliments on my hair all day which tells you how great this cut is - I cannot recommend the salon more highly and I'll be coming back for my complimentary fringe trims as well as some potential hair-colouring in the future! 

This is my favourite nail and hair salon in London. It has a great atmosphere, very relaxed, they never rush you and there's always time to chat, good advice and reasonably priced, plus they always have wine, perfect for when you've had a hard day at work or you're getting ready for a night out! Tina has a big choice of colours and they seem to last for ages plus they have Hayley who can do amazing nail art and full face make up, so now I'm booked in for hair nails and halloween make up! Hope you like as much as I do.

I love this place! It has to be the best salon in London for nails. The shellac manis and pedis are always perfect and last forever (I blame them for my shellac addiction). Such a lovely, welcoming atmosphere too. I've been coming here for a couple of years now and won't go anywhere else. Thank you Tina and the team!

The Painted Lady is hands down the best salon in London for nails. They have the broadest selection of Shellac colours I've seen and all of their technicians are equally talented at making my short, tatty nails look perfect & stay that way for weeks. Lovely cozy salon too with great vintage decor, and if you get the window seat it's great for people watching. Would give them 6 stars if I could!

The best place in Shoreditch for nails. I have been going to the Painted lady for a couple of years now. Tina and the team are amazing. Really welcoming and a lovely relaxed atmosphere in the salon. Tina's shellac manicures and pedicure's are amazing and I have never had a manicure that last so long as the ones done at the painted lady.  Worth every penny.  

I've been visiting the Painted Lady - and Tina - for over two years and it's one of the best places in a little bit of Shoreditch. And very good value. Tina and the team are always friendly and welcoming - often with a coffee, tea, wine or beer and friendly chat. Her mani's and pedi's are always perfectly done with care and in record time and I always leave feeling like a new woman - even if it's just my hand and feet! I love the place.

Want the best nails in town? Come here. Tina is amazing, so precise and the shellac lasts ages!

Am loving my lunchtime trips to Shoreditch for my nail appointments... I came across the Painted Lady whilst looking for a new nail salon whilst my usual girl has taken a break as a new mummy. Easy bus ride from my office near London Bridge, fab salon - great atmosphere and styling with vintage accessories. My shellac manicures are wonderful thanks to Tina.... slowly making my way through the vast selection of colours! Tina is such a perfectionist - girl after my own heart! - so nails always look fab... scrub and handcreams smell devine. (Don't forget that nails are cash only)

I first made an appointment at TPL after a colleague recommended it. I have since not gone anywhere else cause I absolutely love this place.. The atmosphere in the salon is really relaxed, friendly, unpretentious.. you get offered a drink and made to feel really welcome. My hair dresser Nuria is always chatty and smiley but most importantly she's a very skilled hairdresser and stylist. She really takes her time to cut and style my hair the way I want it and is amazing at giving me advice on what I can do with my hair (I loved the balayage!). The rest of the team are always super sweet as well and for the price I won't be going anywhere else anytime soon!

I absolutely love going to The Painted Lady for hair and nails. I really recommend Nuria for cut and colour services. She's the stylist I have been looking for for years. Having spent money at more expensive salons where I often felt there was little value for money it's great to feel you are going to get what you ask for, good advice if you need it- plus fair pricing. Nuria totally sorted my hair colour out after a mishap at another more pricey east london salon and I haven't looked back. She's Spanish but speaks really good English and also works as a session stylist and has worked in one of the top salons in Barcelona too. In case you hadn't grasped it by now- I think this girl is great. Go to Tina for nails, like other reviewers have said, she always tries to fit you in, even if it's really busy. You go downstairs for pedicures where she'll put on some 1940's music, make you a mean cup of tea and have a good gossip. So much nicer than going to a sterile nail bar. Every time I go to The Painted Lady I feel welcomed and really look forward to going there- a great bunch!

Tina is lovely and the manicures and pedicures always look perfect! Totally recommend Shellac as it lasts forever and doesn't chip. I have been going there for at least a year now and always walk out happy. Next one is booked already...

Tina is amazing! she is such a perfectionist and her shellac manicure lasts for ages. The service at the Painted Lady is always extremely friendly and you can relax and enjoy your treatment. Easily the best manicures and pedicures I have ever had!

Easily the best nail salon in London - so lovely and relaxed, and the neatest work ever - Tina is amazing. So professional and thorough, never had a chip yet and even if I didn't live locally I would cross town to keep going to the painted lady, just head and shoulders better than anywhere else I've been from West London to the City.

The service in the painted lady nail shop is amazzzzing. I would recommend anyone passing by Redchurch street to pop in and get your nails and pedicure did.

I have been getting my hair cut and dyed by Belinda for six years, and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. The vibe at The Painted Lady is fun and chilled, and not at all pretentious like other Shoreditch salons. I recently started getting my mini manicures to by Tina, which are very affordable (£16) and by far the neatest I have ever had! No one rushes in this salon, you will just get the best possible service from very skilled staff.

i have been getting my nails done by Tina here for the last 9 months and wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The service is really friendly and the treatments are top quality. I have shellac manicures and pedicures which never seem to chip and loyalty is rewarded with a free treatment when you've had 5. i recently got married and Tina came out of hours to my hotel the night before to do the nails of myself and my bridesmaids the night before the wedding. i highly recommend it.

I have become completely addicted to the Shellac manicures here. The paint job is always total perfection and lasts for weeks - the only reason I have to go back is because my nails outgrow the paint rather than because they are chipped. And if they do get chipped the lovely Tina offers to repaint for the first two weeks after your appointment. There's a great laidback atmosphere - if you want a showy, flashy experience this is not the place for you, but if you want to relax and have a cup of tea and a friendly chat during your treatment then I'd say book away.
