Got my haircut today by Bruno at Rush. He did an amazing job. He was very professional and patient with me. Would definitely return to get a haircut from him.
Mahnoor Sohail
I've been getting my hair highlighted since I was about 15 and Bruno at Rush Balham has now done my hair twice this year and it's the nicest colour anyone has ever done. I've been really pleased with it and he is also super friendly and knowledgeable about skincare too! Would 100% recommend.
Amy Barrington

Menell Nelly
After a really bad dye job at another salon, I went to Rush hoping they could save my hair (& dignity). And then I met Sam, an absolute wonder woman! She spent most of the day working on my damaged hair, and by the time I left I was in love with my hair. Sam did an amazing job!!Not only did Sam make me feel super comfortable , she also stayed at the salon an extra hour after closing to finish the job. I cannot give her a higher recommendation. She went above and beyond, and there's not a chance I'll consider going anywhere else.
Robyn Drayton
Andreia did a fab job - highly recommended!
Matthew Rowell
My hair feels wonderful, even on the second day after the cut. Lovely, bubbly stylists that I would definitely trust again. Be seeing you soon!
100% recommended!!
Ben Morrison

alessandra silva
Love this salon, always 100% happy with my hair, nice atmosphere and lovely staff...5 stars
Nat Barnett
Gennaro saved me :) Thank youAfter a stupid spontaneous box dye with 'no bleach bleach' to my already naturally blonde hair - it was hideous. My hair was the brassiest yellow you could imagine. He immediately made me feel comfortable and told me he would fix it. The plan was for root dye, balayage and toner but after the roots were done (perfectly matched to my own roots) and the toner it was basically already balayage and I was very happy. Saved me money and more damage to curly hair.
Naomi Mescall
After an emoticon day of damaging my hair with bleach I decide to cut my hair short after 30years of long. I trusted the creative director Gennaro as he made me comfortable, understood to what I want to achieve, must say he did an amazing job ! I love my new style ...200% recommended!!Thank you Gennaro
Robina Babor
I 100% recommend this salon. I had an amazing hair cut.

Camille Boutrolle
I had a great experience last night at Rush Balham. The staff on arrival were friendly and the salon had a nice yet professional atmosphere. I was seen by Layla and she did a fantastic job at rescuing my hair from a previously bad cut and colour from another salon. She was technically very good and made sure she fully understood what I was after. She was also a lot of fun to chat with and made the experience really enjoyable. Would thoroughly recommend.
Nicola Sutherland
Had a lovely cut wash and blow dry by Melissa would definitely recommend!
I had my first visit some weeks ago and I can say that the customer service was excellent". I had my haircut by Anna and she is truly fantastic, you don't feel insecure when you are there. Better than I expected. I'll go back for some highlights

Absolutely amazing service. First ever visit to RUSH and was blown away by the service I was provided by all the staff. Very happy with the way my style turned out and was having a nice chat whilst I was getting my hair done. Got offered drinks, magazines etc. Service was FABULOUS! Big thanks to Ruben for the born-again-me! :)
George Honeywell
Ruben did an amazing job with the colour and made me feel very welcome and relaxed. Will definitely rebook soon! Also nice chocolates.
Luna Lindsey
RUBEN! Totally the best. He listens and gives advice. He is my new hairdresser
Gemma Syner
Top class service every visit. Rueben is a colour expert and always leaves my hair exactly how I want it! Absolutely love visiting this place and Rueben for his top colouring, cutting and banter!
Mandy Scullion
Ruben was incredible - he spent time talking to me first before touching the scissors, he educated me on how to care for my hair and we did a few tests to assess the condition it was in. We then decided on a cut to remove the damage and improve the overall condition moving forwards! Great experience, lovely and the stylists were very knowledgeable. I will be returning and recomending!
Katherine Brown (Kate)
I regularly hair cut and blow dry at Rush Balham with Paul. He is amazing, the way he styles hair- you can see he is passionate about hair- awesome experience. Totally recommend and now I'm a permanent returning customer 😀
Nidhi Sharma
I had a wonderful time at rush Balham, excellent customer service - lovely hospitality - Lola was the best at making sure we were always happy. Paul was excellent with my hair and worked wonders. Great atmosphere, would definitely recommend! I don't usually trust many hairdressers but have found my hairdresser for life !!!
Viven De Sousa
Exceptional customer service and amazing attention to detail. Best hair experience I've had in London and very affordably priced! ❤️️❤️️❤️️

Really pleased with my colour and cut by Emily, all staff really friendly and helpful, would def recommend.
Mandy Davies
Great salon, would highly recommend. Emily did a fantastic job with my hair, both cut and colour. Left feeling so much better about myself. Salon has such a good vibe and everyone was super nice. Thank you Emily!
Katrina Tognazzi
Ruben is amazing! After a quick chat he knew exactly what I wanted and knew exactly how to achieve it.. His opinion is gold - trust him with your life! The whole experience was great, they offered chocolates and wine (always a winner!), Ruben had me in stitches the entire time, and I left feeling great with an amazing balayage and cut. Thank you!!
Callie Morris
I went to Rush balham for some serious colour correction after some amateur treatwell deal made me look like a squirrel. I'm now so happy with my beautiful balayage that I actually welled up in the salon. It's so good it should be on Pinterest. I'm serious. Layla did my hair and she is an absolute miracle worker. I know she's young but trust me she knows exactly whats she's a couple of years time she'll be in L.A. working exclusively with JLaw...get in there while you can!
Alice Young
I'm so happy with my hair colour and my sisters cut, I was really nervous because I went for something really different but the people in there were soooo friendly and lovely I will definitely be back! I was so glad with the money I spent and the results, unlike other places one balham where I have felt really ripped off. These guys tried to give me exactly what I wanted without trying to exploit me. Really appreciated it
Georgie Gregory
Great customer service, Sal styled my hair exactly as I asked. Would recommend.
Bridget Wheeler
Great service
Soki London
I highly recommend this salon. Their customer service is impeccable and they don't shy away from challenges. I previously toned my bleached hair blue. Big mistake. I needed them to sort out the mess I've made plus bleaching my roots which is a task in its own as I have black hair by nature but Paul and his team did a fantastic job and I'm super happy and will definitely be back. I don't normally trust hairdressers but these guys are amazing know how to take care of your hair.
Denise Grace Llanera
I went for a hair cut with Bruno. He is always polite and is good at building relationships with clients. He is knowledable and can provide versatile styles where requested. Good at taking your opinion into account when asking for style changes.
Rhiannon Morris-Jones
Lovely service and a great cut - I only had a simple trim
Lily Greenwood
really great service for a fab bouncy blowdry
Georgia Jakstys
I have always had a good experience at Rush and though it was super busy today, and there was a bit of a delay, every effort was made to make sure I was ok. I also love the colour of my hair! Have to say Emma and Coco are such a delight and thanks to them I will continue to return.
S Mo
I had really good experience
Sameera Hashemi
Good service and cut. Had a half price offer, it would be a bit over priced if I was paying full price
Erica Bewsey
Lovely atmosphere and pleasant employees. Helps that I love my haircut as well
Vanessa Nunes
