A Drastic Change At Vision N16 Salon, Stoke Newington

We’ve all been there. You spend literal years growing your hair, in an attempt to satisfy a decade-long desire for long, mermaid-esque locks, only to end up with dry, brittle strands that barely reach past your shoulders. Your mum picks at random strands every time you pop round for Sunday lunch. Your boss agrees it ‘could probably do with a tidy up’. You need the lop most of it off, if you’re being honest with yourself.

But trusting a hairdresser (let alone a new hairdresser) with such a Drastic Change can be truly daunting – there’s always a wedding or job interview you’re dreading have to turn up to with a bad haircut. So where does one take the risk, moving to London? We’re hedging our bets with N16 salon, after a visit to owner and deft hairdresser Alberto Renzullo. Once running the show at a packed-out, two-floor central London salon, now enjoying the quieter and more refined area of Stoke Newington in a cosy, upmarket space, his gentle words and kind observations immediately set us at ease.


Our tester wandered in with a vague sense of wanting to start fresh. Armed with little guidance but to ‘make it better, please’, Alberto set to work. A wonderful head massage in the basement studio soon led to tea and coffee upstairs, as the real work begun.


Super happy with the results of this haircut and the general experience at N16, we’d highly recommend booking here – from the ethos (they use Pureology shampoos, conditioners and treatments with Antifade complex which are 100% vegan) to the staff.


ADDRESS: 80 Stoke Newington High Street, N16 7PA, London
