This recent addition to the Rush empire opened at the end of 2009 and I was lucky enough to squeeze in a visit on the penultimate day of their opening offer of 50% off (not a bad start).
Things went from good to great when I was cheerily greeted and offered a choice of complimentary drink, including beer, wine and PROPER COFFEE!
Using a new stylist is always a bit of a gamble, but this one paid off and I walked away with a spring in my step and bounce in my hair, having obtained a cut exactly exactly how I wanted.
They lost a star as the head massage wasn't up to the usual Rush standard, but other than that, I was impressed.
The decor is cool and modern, the spacious interior is much less cramped than some of their other premises and the staff all seemed very friendly and polite; with not the faintest whiff of attitute.
2 other plus points, just in case you needed any more persuasion... you get 50% off your next cut if you reccommend someone AND free fringe trims for existing customers.
Snip snip snip!
Betcha didn't know this one - many streets in London are known for a particular type of shop.
Tottenham Court Road's foray is electronic goods. Wander up and down and check out the deals and prices of laptops, home computers, CD players, MP3 players, hi-fis, accessories and other gadgets.
A great place to window shop and gauge prices for anything electronic.
This pub serves the best pie arround, therefore living up to its name as the piehouse. A smallish upstairs pub with bar which is always packed full of people, as is every pub in tottencourt road. However, downstairs, which can be assessed either through the upstairs, or from outside down steps, you enter a dining area, which is much more relaxed and quiet. The menu is extensive, with a great variety of pie (great for me) serving pies from blue cheese and steak, to steak and ale, steak and onion, chicken, or even seafood. All are good, big healthy portions served with either mash, or chips and a nice amount of fresh veg. Its great. Not too expensivr either, coming to about £7.00 per person excluding drinks. The service is quick and friendly, and the pub is situated so central it is impossible to miss!
I think there is always a bargain to be had on this street which is well known for the array of electrical shops. You can get just about any piece of technology here such as televisions, cameras, computers and video equipment, and usually for a great price that you won't see anywhere else in London. If you're up for it, bartering is usually common place. I've never managed to get too much of a discount but it's definitely worth a go. If you're heading there to shop, leave enough time, there are a lot of shops to check out.
Disgraceful!!!!I went there when they were empty, sat waiting for 15 mins when my stylist strolled passed me and started to serve customers off the street products.I then approached the till to explain i hadn't time to wait when it was indicated to me that the woman serving products was my stylist. We then went to the chair and she sat next to me (which I did not see the need for as i already explained I had to get on with the cut) on proceeding the conversation it came to light she could not even do a simple cut and shape up and a fade. She did try to get someone else but I simply replied I had no time left and that is why i made it clear on the phone when booking my appointment what I actually wanted ( which clearly made no difference) NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
pefect place to pop into while xmas shopping but be warned its always full so book inadvance. polite and friendly instore
its become a bit more of a try-before-you-buy-online place but the prices can be good here you just need to haggle. But before you haggle have a reference price to back your story up. Dont be suprised if after you haggle in a few places here they all come down to the same price! Nice places to eat around this roads off tottenham court road which can offer good value for money is this part of london. If your into PCs ask for the computer fairs that take place around here on the weekend.
Awful experience Don't do it!! Rude staff and not a clue when it comes to hair! I'm not a happy customer and they dont even deserve the one star!! :(
Had a really good experience here. I hadn't been to a hairdresser in 5 months because I was really trying to grow my slow moving hair and I've had bad experiences with hairdressers who hack my hair up or cut it too short. I went to Rush on a 50% off for new customers deal, which was a bargain. I had a stylist names Roman who sat down with me to listen to what I had to say. He then explained what he planned to do, and why he was going to cut my hair a certain way, so that I was happy with what he had in mind.
The wash was good, the girl gave me lots of options all the way through, such as how many shampoos did I want, conditioning or if I wanted any special treatments. She didn't push any products I didn't want which was a relief. The head massage was brief which suited me as I was on my lunch break.
Roman cut my hair efficiently and exactly as he said he would no nasty surprises. He was chatty but not too much so as to lose focus. I left with a lovely haircut exactly what I'd asked for and will definitely be going back again. Full price it's probably not the cheapest option but now I know I can trust Rush I'm willing to pay, plus as it's central London I think the price is probably reasonable.
