A brand new hair salon has opened in Stratford’s East Village.

Independent group Blue Tit kick-started their latest offering in Celebration Avenue with a launch party last week.

Adding to salons in Dalston, Clapton, Peckham, and Brockley, the company’s co-founder Andreas Hinteregger was delighted to be bringing his business to Newham.

“We haven’t even had much of a plan for the brand’s development, so to be opening our fifth salon in incredible,” he said.

“We’ve got no investment or anything, it’s still completely owned by us, there’s no-one else involved.

“As we’ve gone on, the team’s grown and with our best team members we want to give them an opportunity to grow, so we open shops with them and now we’re here in East Village.”

Based in an area which once housed international athletes during the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the salon will offer haircuts and sell hair and beauty products.

Although part of an expanding chain, Mr Hinteregger admitted the Stratford addition has its own unique feel.

“We create all of our interiors and always take inspiration from the building itself,” he added.

“For the East Village we’ve gone away from all the recycled stuff we have in our other salons and it’s a bit more sleek and industrial.”

Prices start at £32 for a blow dry and go up to £170 for a Brazilian.
