After a challenging work week where hair care was largely set aside, I turned up at Medusa, Bread Street salon looking like Wurzell Gummage’s (Google it, youngsters 😂) more neglected sister. The wonderfully talented Kate worked her magic and I left 45 minutes later in a scented cloud of soft, golden waves and a large dose of self confidence. Drop in for a quick toner and blow dry. Less than an hour to reach hair perfection. I’ll be back for more of this - for sure!

Hair looking great

Niva did a great job with my hair. Her hands were also so gentle with my scalp that it didn't hurt at all during the whole process. My hair also looked amazing afterwards.

Best short haircut in Edinburgh

Appointment verified by SaloniQ Software

Im thrilled with my new short haircut by Corinne. She listened carefully to what I asked for and took such great care in cutting my straight hair. Corinne is highly skilled and creative and gave me the best haircut I’ve had in many years. I wouldn’t go anywhere else or to anyone else in Edinburgh. Absolutely brilliant cutter and a pleasure to watch her at work. Corinne made me look and feel fantastic. Thank you so much.

I'm honestly so happy with my colour done by Marnie last Friday. I had asked for a full head ash blonde highlights which can be tricky to get the right shade but she got exactly the colour in the picture I had brought and I'm so happy with the result. Thanks so much! ❤️😊

I have been a client of Colin’s for many years. His business has evolved and expanded greatly but nothing has changed with regard to the quality of his cut, colour, ethos and vibe in the salon. After my cut Colin took time to cut my 2 year olds hair, her first cut. She was unsure but Colin was great with her putting her at ease, making her smile and doing a great job despite the fidgeting.
As always I highly recommended Colin and his team.

Kate did an incredible job with my hair. She talked me through what she recommended and helped me pick a colour that would suit me. She was really understanding when my baby was unsettled and made me feel comfortable. I left the salon with amazing hair and I will definitely be returning very soon.

Last minute emergency hair up!!

Absolutely fantastic! I had a very very last minute wedding upgrade to full day and chanced my arm for a nearby salon to get my hair done. Was a very lucky girl and got an apppointment due to a cancellation. My hair was
Beautifully done. Corinne listened to what I thought and advised what would suit. An hour later I was off to the wedding. My hair was fabulous and stayed in allllll day despite the copious amounts of fizz and dancing! Considering I had never stepped foot in the salon before, Corinne expertly sorted out my mop so I was belle of the ball.

First of all, the staff is really nice and welcoming. They also accepted to help me with making a hair donation. I didn't know what kind of style I wanted and just gave a general direction. After that, Marnie explained what she could do and the result is above all my expectations. I really love it! Thank you Marnie!

First visit and Got my roots sorted , a toner and a cut. Kate did a lovely job. The colour didn’t take in one area and she fixed it and ensured I was happy with it before I left. Kate was really friendly and professional. Will definitely be back.

Kate knows what to do with my coarse wavy hair to make it manageable while having some kind of shape. She’s a really precise cutter and works with the wave, meaning a can just wash and go at home. Friendly, low-stress salon. No pressure to buy products, get a blow dry etc
