WE ARE A YOUNG, ENERGETIC, NEW HAIR STUDIO IN LAUDERDALE PLACE, BARBICAN, LONDON EC2

THAO V HAIR STUDIO

We are a hair salon for all genders, whether you are looking for a classic precision hair cut, a glamorous blow dry or a trendy colour. Our Schwarzkopf professional hair care products are adapted to help your needs and type of hair.

Our founder, Thao Vilayvong, has worked in independent hairdressers in Paris and London, as well as on editorial shoots, music videos, tv and theatre.

Thao trained in MONTESANTOS European Hairdressing Academy in Paris and has also trained at TONY & GUY Academy London. The concept of THAO V Hair Studio was first created in 2008 in a tiny studio in Paris when Thao changed from his previous career in the theatre to full time hair and beauty. Thao has always been passionate about hairdressing, make up and photography, and his style is to put his customers in the spotlight, feeling confident and happy with their own image, and enjoying different hairstyles and colors. In 2014 Thao moved to London to work in the West End. Then, in 2017, Thao decided to open this hair salon in the Barbican, EC2.

People often ask us what is the meaning of the name Thao? Originally this is a word from the country of Laos which means “sir”. We chose this name to honour the founder’s roots and family, and to signify the unique design of our newly renovated hair salon.
