Medusa Hair Salon Stockbridge, Edinburgh

31 Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh, EH4 1HX

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.

I’ve been looking for a hairdresser in Edinburgh for a while now and been nervous about the switch but Kayleigh made me feel super comfortable and confident choosing her. She showed me previous copper colours she’s done which made me excited for the results!

Kayleigh talked through what she was doing and discussed future colour options. Obsessed with the cut and colour!

I've never reviewed a haircut before. I had this haircut in November 23 and just back from a different hairdresser. The haircut I got in November at Medusa Stockbridge was the worst haircut and style of my life and I'm in my 50s. It was squint and pointed it out at least 3 times another hairdresser came over to assure me it wasn't. I asked for an undercut and she shaved it in a straight line. I got my haircut for my mum’s funeral, it was just shocking and worse people even said “oh my” when they saw it. I know it's a bit passive aggressive leaving a terrible review and so late but I was too upset to be assertive at the time - I did about the squint bit but they persuaded me it wasn't. I just can't express how happy I was with the hairdresser I was with today not in the Medusa chain.

Hi cat, I’m really sorry that you were left very upset with your haircut, I’ve looked through the appointment date and you were booked in with Alex, Alex at that time was a graduate stylist, still training and her prices are very very heavily discounted as it was model cut and blow dry, if this was brought to our attention at the time one of our experienced stylist could have taken over or we would have invited you back in to the salon for a refresh on the cut, unfortunately because this didn’t happen we can’t see if the cut was technically not correct, I’m really sorry that you though you couldn’t call up so we could rectify this,
Thanks

Excellent!

Kayleigh was so lovely and everyone in the salon was super nice. I had such a wonderful experience with a quite out there cut and colour. Checking in whisky I processed from both bleach and colour were great and not overbearing. It was a beautiful space and I learnt a lot on how to do my hair at home too as I am slightly in experienced with styling with a shag cut. I'm super happy with the results and my appointment, highly recommend.

First time I have visited this salon. It’s a bit nerve wracking for me to try out a new hairdresser as I’ve had some bad experiences in the past but this turned out to be one of the best. My hairdresser, Chloe, took time to discuss what I wanted, gave advice, explained everything and is a real perfectionist. I had lowlights woven into my fair hair and was delighted with the result.
I can highly recommend Chloe to anyone looking for somewhere to ultimately make you feel a million dollars
