Medusa Broughton Street
  • Description

    Medusa like to do things differently - we're an award-winning Edinburgh hairdressing salon consistently creating new styles at the vanguard of fashion, but all the while exuding a genuine warmth and welcome. And that's because we obsess about hair, and equally, about how to make every minute of your time with us memorable (for all the right reasons). Sit back, have a cappuccino, have a wine, or have a funky organic tea if you fancy. From the second you step in the door, we want to make you feel at home, and get to know you, your hair and how you want to feel in your new hairstyle.

    No rush, no fuss, no problem.

    Let us make your hair rock.

Kym has looked after my golden locks for a number of years, I wouldn't let anyone else touch them as she is quite simply the best!

Haircut with Andrew

Kinza Husain - 5th Jun 2021

Verified Appointment Verified by SaloniQ Software

Had such a nice haircut with Andrew! He did a great job with cutting and shaping my layers so that my hair can continue to grow out healthy. He was lovely to chat with as well.

The receptionist was also so welcoming and kind — so sorry to have forgotten their name!

The salon overall seemed super clean and they wipe down the chair/station in front of you before you sit down so you can see they’re being cautious and safe. All the staff had masks on as well.

Excited to come back in a few weeks for another fringe trim :)

Kym listens to what I think I would like and then makes suggestions and after discussion agree on final style.
Have been a client for a number of years and she knows what I like, knows my hair and able to style my hair appropriately.

Not the final result I was hoping for

Bronwyn - 25th May 2021

The fantastic reviews online made me select this salon for my first haircut post lockdown. However, after washing my hair at home it became apparent there were issues with the cut. The front sections near my face were very blocky. The salon was able to book me in the same day I called and had another stylist make adjustments. It could only be amended by so much and it is not the final result I was looking for but am thankful for being fit in for an appointment so quickly.

Hi bronwyn
Thank you for your review, so sorry we didn’t deliver on expectations, hopefully going forward you would consider us again so we can give you the 5 star service you should have received.

Fabulous experience overall: great haircut, great rapport with Andrew, who listens and advises, styles hair according to individual requirements, remembers what was asked from him since last appointment; smooth appointment and service by other staff too (helpful, relaxed, attentive). Appointment felt easy and relaxed, and at a professional level.

I had a cut and blow dry with Andrew yesterday. Decided to go for a bit of a change, and he couldn't have made me feel more comfortable. Really got to know me, my style and my hair and adjusted my requests to a new style that works best for me. Would really recommend!

I had a brilliant experience! Craig made me feel really comfortable and completely understood the issues I have with my hair. He really listened to me and helped me to figure the best way forward for my hair. I had a cut and colour, the cut and colour are both amazing! Couldn't be happier with my new hair! I felt in completely safe hands. I've already booked another appointment with Craig. Would definitely highly recommend Craig and this salon!

So this was my first time back to the salon since Christmas 2020 and my god I feel amazing! Craig is always my go to man for anything hair wise! I never leave the salon unhappy without fail and he always goes over and above. Twice I’ve said to him to surprise me with my hair colour and both times I’ve been delighted.

The salon is super clean and tidy during these weird times were in and the staff are always making sure everything is sanitised after and throughout use.
