Bravo to Zoology

Congratulations to Zoology, which has been shortlisted for best local salon in the UK by Creative Head magazine. It is up against four other hairdressers in the awards which will take place at Tate Modern in September.

Head zoologist Mark Mountney reckons the shortlisting is their biggest achievement so far. He said:  “I was bought up in Wanstead and went to school at Wanstead High and I’ve only ever worked in Wanstead.

“I started my business in 1996, Marks Of Wanstead, which was where Envi nails is now, just next door. That was 18 years ago. Then in 2002 we moved to where we are now, into what was the controversial ‘M11 Link Road office’, and way before that used to be the Wanstead Library.”

The pictures below, a touch out of order, give a flavour of the times. As Wansteadium noted earlier this month, though, the row between Sumo Fresh and the soon-to-be Long Horn is now looking particularly smart.

  1. Well done Mark and all the team, this is so very deserved. Not just a brilliant Hairdressers, but a friendly, welcoming, helpful team; I really look forward to each appointment. I’ve been going to the salon since it opened, but Mark has done my hair for about 20 (maybe more?) years – one of the loveliest, sweetest, funniest men I know. Fingers crossed for a win xxx

  2. Fantastic! Went there for the first time last week and had Charlie cut my hair – he was great, and the whole place was really professional and inviting. Will definitely be going back. Hope you win!

  3. Congratulations Mark and all the team. Definitely well deserved – hope you win. Always a pleasure to come in for a hair do and to see you all – especially when Francisca is feeling so very fabulous!

  4. I have been going to Zoology for ten years! They are always welcoming, fun and take care of all my hair needs! I don’t even ask the hairdressers any more as to what I want with my hair, Michelle always does my colour and I trust her to do it without telling her what I want. They are simply amazing and I can’t imagine going anywhere else!

  5. Fantastic news & a true achievement of your strive & talents to reach this far.. You & your fantastic team soooo deserve it. Not sure Mark of your interview tactics..!!! But you’ve only ever had the best staff there.. Always warm & welcoming… & super professional from the minute the door opens…
    Good luck.. You all deserve to win… Team Zoology….
