I have been going to Urban Rites for about 10 years. It 's a tiny little salon, tucked away from the busy Kings Road. It is managed by Claire(always full of beans), Corinne (with her pronounced, cute and sexy French accent) and by smiley, gentle little Rima who deals with the beautician side of the business. Unlike many salons the staff have been pretty much the same during all these years, which in itself says something about the positive working ethos in the salon.

The atmosphere is friendly and professional, the prices are lower than most salons in that area. But what I also very much like about that particular salon is that it has not got the usual 'Chelsea pretence' which I so much dislike. And the sweets basket is always full...


I've been going to Urban Rites for the last 10 years as it's just a great place.

It's a tiny boutique in a unique haven in Chelsea, which is exactly what I love about it -there's plenty of choice anyway if what you're looking for is a large impersonal hair salon-

Claire, Corine and Ridma! You're doing a great job, just don't change anything!

(don't miss the vietnamese restaurant in front of the salon either!)


I've been coming to Urban Rites since I was a teenager, so the Urban Rites team feel more like family after all these years.

Whether it's a cut, colour or blow dry, or if I'm getting my hair styled for a big event, they never fail to make me feel like a million dollars.

I always look forward to a visit to the salon!


Super happy getting my haircut here. I recently went for a big change in style and colour (a first for me) and Corinne did a fantastic job. Amazing value for money too and really friendly atmosphere.

As a part time London resident, I found Urban Rites by chance, and am happy to say that it is the only salon I go to for all my hair care needs.

Whether it be cut, colour or a simple blow dry, Claire and Corrine are friendly and very knowledgable. I would highly recommend the salon.

What a great hairdresser. I love coming to Urban Rites. Claire is so nice and friendly and has none of the snootiness of the other upmarket salons on the King's Rd.

Claire keeps notes of our conversations and every time asks me if I am happy with the cut and colour and follows up on any comments. She does a brilliant job with my hair and I genuinely look forward to the chat.

It's definitely my favourite ever Chelsea salon!

We come at URBAN RITE since 2 years now, and we are always very happy. Everyone is very friendly and professional. Corine is a nice lady and she knows perfectly her job. She always do her best for her client.

We recommend URBAN RITES!

I am a nearby office worker who stumbled upon Urban Rites one lunch time after struggling to find a good hairdresser in the area for some time.

The staff at Urban Rites are super friendly and helpful and will take their time with your hair. I haven't looked back and am a regular there now and would travel across London to get a haircut here!
