Our Salon

You’ll find us in buzzing Walthamstow, E17. We’re the salon offering the premium hairdressing in a fetish-inspired environment.

We’ve got two rules for our team. They have to be lovely and they have to be bloody good hairdressers. It makes for a fantastic salon experience that will put you at ease from the moment you walk through the door.

We’ll make sure that you’re really listened to and you’ll leave feeling up-beat and awesome (with your head full of the top tips to make sure your hair looks just as good until your next visit).



When your passions collide something pretty special usually happens. And that’s exactly what Harness & Mane is.

Salon owner Gunel has been in the hairdressing industry since 2005, and absolutely loves bringing your confidence and inner beauty out through your hair. Around the same time, she got involved in London’s alternative scene, being influenced by alternative fashion, music and events from this sub-culture.

Together with her husband, Hughie, they realised it was a good time to merge these interests and so Harness & Mane was born.

They hand-picked a team of talented and experienced hair stylists who thrive in our open, no-judgement environment and together they’ve created a salon like no other.

Today, we have a buzzing clientele of fetish models and designers from the alternative scene, but we’re also Walthamstow’s destination salon for professionals looking for a premium hair appointment in a luxurious yet unique environment.

We follow a gender neutral pricing structure, which means you pay for the time it takes to do your hair, rather than your gender.

The salon also holds regular events including exhibitions and classes, often with live music. Click here to find out more.

We're a Davines salon because they are vegan and, like us, they pride themselves on sustainability. We wanted to bring Davines to East London because the quality and results are amazing, shiny and, in our experience, second to none.

Manic Panic is the colour range for people who want to express themselves! A vegan, cruelty-free brand that’s free from nasties, but unrivalled for creating head-turning hair colour. It's proved the perfect choice for our East London crowd.

K18 hair treatments in Walthamstow

K18 has become a popular alternative to Olaplex because of the minimal time it takes to restore the structure of your hair. This treatment can be the difference between having your hair coloured and having to wait.
