About us

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.

Got curly hair, then look no further than Craig. Beautifully technical haircut which keeps its shape so well. Coupled with my highly moisturising colour, top, top, top!

Donna always goes above and beyond when booking my appointments she manages to fit me in around my busy schedule and very accommodating! Each time I leave salon I’m more than happy with my hair. Throughout my appointment chat is easy flow and all staff are friendly and easy to talk too! My daughters now attend Medusa at Broughton street as great with kids. Five stars from us all :)

Best hair outcome of my life

I booked a cut and balayage with Roman and it’s the best decision I’ve made with regards to my hair. He made my hair better than I could have imagined, I love the caramel and blonde highlights and the bounce to my hair. He shaped it to my face just right - something previous stylists at other salons haven’t managed to the same degree. It looks the healthiest it has ever looked and I feel more confident than ever. I have been to many salons and I know for sure I will keep coming back to this one and Roman specifically! I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and will definitely be back. Thanks so so much!
