  • I would highly recommend a visit to Orao. I’ve been going to Orao Hairdressers since it was first established in 2004 . Over the years Liliana and Nick have provided an exceptional service but have also become friends. Including doing my hair for my wedding! I have recommended family and friends to go to Orao and I personally will not let anyone else cut or color my hair. You will find that the staff at Orao listen to what you want, pay attention to detail are friendly and affordable. Even my daughter loves her hairdresser trips.

  • I love Orao hair salon in Balham. I have been their faithful customer for many years since they first opened and I had the opportunity to try out everything from excellent highlights, to haircuts, hair for special occasions etc. They are always right on trend. I would highly recommend Orao hair salon and their staff whether it is a simple haircut or a blow dry or highlights or a special occasion like a wedding. Give it a try, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed and prices are very reasonable for a first quality service.

  • I have been going to the Orao team for about 7 years now, after they were recommended to me by a friend. I have never really felt tempted to go elsewhere as the whole team always look after me and listen carefully to what I want. I always receive a warm welcome when on each visit. I’ve always been complimented on my hair, from the short cropped hairdo’s 5 years ago to my now long blonde hair, and will continue to recommend them to all my friends. Thanks for looking after me all these years all of you!
