Facebook Reviews4.8powered by FacebookJoanna Bogdal2018-08-20T22:02:08+0000Given all the positive reviews I must have been really unlucky last week. I am fairly new to the city and have been looking for a good hairdresser for quite a while and was pleased to see so many positive reviews here. I have never dyed my hair before so I have done my research and decided to try sombre to refresh my natural dark blonde hair colour. I emailed the salon, briefly explained what I wanted and came prepared with a couple of pictures to show. Sadly, I realised after a few minutes that the girl who was doing my hair was quite new and after working for just 6 weeks, may have not been experienced enough to do sombre. I got a bit worried when she mentioned "bleach" but again, I have never dyed my hair so was not sure if she needed to bleach my hair when doing sombre/highlights. After 2 hours I noticed that the contrast between my roots and highlights was too visible. The ends were really sort of scandi blonde whereas the roots were dark blonde. It did look absolutely awful, especially that there was no gradual melting of the colour. I spoke to, I believe, Tina who tried to convince me that the colour blended well but really, no offence, it looked a bit like one of the "before" pictures showing hilarious hair dye fails. The girl put some toner on but it didn't really help, the contrast was still there so I just asked to have my hair dyed so that it would match my natural colour. The girl tried her best to fix it and actually stayed for about 3-4 hours after their closed the salon, just to fix the colour and I am really grateful for that. Nobody noticed on Monday that I had my hair dyed which was a relief. Probably I would have even left her a huge tip for trying her best to fix it, but the fact that I was offered a "discount" for having my hair bleached and then fixed to make me look the way I entered the salon 6.5hrs earlier (never mind making me look remotely close to the pictures I showed) kind of put me off. I was more upset because of the fact that nobody supervised the girl when she clearly needed it. And I was unlucky enough to have my hair dyed that day. But again, given all the reviews posted here, I may have been just really unlucky. Either way, I will not go back and probably will think twice before I try to dye my hair again.Jill Coleman2018-07-29T08:44:17+0000Hey ladies thankyou you so so much for sorting out my hair yesterday .. really achieved the look I was aiming for and would have no hesitation recommending you .

Not only did I get an amazing service and beautiful nails, I had the best chat with Dee (who is wonderful) and a complimentary tea with a Lotus biscuit on arrival (and if you're a biscuit snob like me, you'll know the supreme quality of a Lotus!) Very happy, thank you! 🙂Lorraine Bo2018-06-27T10:29:51+0000I've been going to the salon for a wee while now. Tina always does a great job & everyone is really friendly.

I had so many compliments.Kirsty Reid2018-03-30T20:13:01+0000Cannot thank the girls at the salon enough for the exceptional job they done for my sisters wedding make up and hair trial. Expectations were met, and then some. Service was so professional and yet so chilled out. They make you feel at home and go beyond the duty of their service. Cannot wait for the wedding now guys! �Susan Wilson2018-03-29T19:13:36+0000We needed to find something for my friends hen do last min due to another event not getting back to us. We were going out with the 1920s in mind. So I looked for vintage stuff in Edinburgh. Found this lovely salon who kindly took us all in and made us looking amazing. We felt so welcome and had such a great laugh getting ready for our night out. Thanks againPaula Beaton2018-02-05T15:33:17+0000Just has a fantastic haircut here.

Jenny where do i start (hugs and applause?)... you created a masterpeice on my bridal hair and make up. Only had to top up my lippy once and that was after dinner . At no point did i ever feel rushed in the morning and you made everything feel so calm.You are incredibly talented and i cant wait for my next excuse to come in for a 'do-up'. My flower girl was so proud of her princess curls. X x The day before the wedding my mam and I came to the salon for our nails and a blow dry... it was a delight to have been made such a fuss of. Such a warm welcome and down to earth approach. We were made to feel right at home. Thank you so much for making it feel so easy.Lisa Pavlovna2017-09-20T18:56:09+0000Loved,loved, loved everything.

Google ReviewsPaula B12:31 07 Feb 18Booked a haircut here firstly for the quirky retro decor. The salon is amazing and everybody so friendly. Wasn't too sure what I wanted done as it was my first haircut in a year - and always a bit scary trying somewhere new! Loretta put me instantly at ease and seemed to know what I wanted even though I wasn't sure myself! I've ended up with a gorgeous style I love and am completely chuffed to bits with. Really relaxing atmosphere, great chat with the girls and a lovely cup of tea to boot. Already booked my next appointment and looking forward to it. ????????????????????Aileen Lightbody07:22 18 Dec 17I've been going here for a few years now. All I've ever had is a wet cut, usually when I've let my grow so out of shape it's a mess! Tina though makes an excellent job of restoring it. In fact it's one of the best haircuts I've ever had. Very reasonable prices. Comfortable friendly salon. Would definitely recommend.Danuta Orlowska17:39 02 Feb 18Super friendly quirky salon - very happy to have found Tina and her team. Vintage hair styles are her speciality and I have enjoyed every visit to this small salon which has a huge heart. Totally recommended. The orange 1960s typewriter is a great piece of wall art! Can I give 6 stars please?Camille Zimmerman13:33 21 Apr 18Always come out of this salon feeling 100 times better. Lovely personal service that is different from your average salonH Engleman20:49 21 Mar 18Make-up tutorial from Kirsty was warm, personal, professional, educational and practical at once. Learnt more in 2 hrs than from 4 decades of magazine articles, inc choosing make-up colours and products to suit my complexion, application techniques, and how to emphasise my best features while minimising my lesser-favoured ones. Astounding and a little emotional to see my younger-day features returning to life, without a trace of a mask-like appearance and not a hint of product-selling. Can't thank Kirsty enough for her skills and teaching expertise, and can't wait to try out what she's taught me.
