FAQ

 

What are your opening hours ?

Mon-Wed: 9am - 6pm

Thurs: 9am - 8:30pm

Fri: 9am - 6pm

Sat: 9am - 4:30pm

 

 

Where are you ?

We have four salons - three in Edinburgh city centre (at Teviot, Grassmarket, and Bread Street), and another one in Musselburgh. See Salons for maps/addresses, etc.

 

 

I am a new customer - Do i really, really, really need a skin test before any colouring treatments ?

 

Yes, you do, and yes, we insist (sorry!!). The test itself will take under 2 minutes and you can pop into any one of our four salons, even if you are not getting your hair cut at that salon. We can do the test any time you want - at least 48 hours before and up to three weeks before your appointment. Trust us on this - we do these tests because it's in your absolute best interests. The possibility of an allergic reaction is very very low, but the potential danger to your health is serious enough to always warrant the test. We know some salons do not always insist on this check, but we would ask you to think twice as to why such salons might be prepared to accept such risks given the potential danger to your health.

(...we'll now climb down off  our hobby-horse.)

 

 

What do you serve in the salon ?

Our salons all offer (real) coffee, organic teas and fruity infusions, as well as a selection of wines and soft drinks, all served with either biscuits or "savoury snacks".

 

 

What is your cancellation policy ?

Sometimes the car breaks down, the baby melts down, the boss has a last-minute “great idea”, or the dissertation due tomorrow failed to write itself… we understand that last minute calamities happen, but please try to cancel with as much notice as possible so that we have a chance of re-allocating the slot to someone else.

 

How can I keep my hair looking good after my visit to the salon ?

Getting a great cut in the first place is the crucial first step, and all of our stylists are technical masters in cutting hair so that it falls naturally into place, and will serve you well, long after you’ve left the salon. We also provide a free fringe trim (or gent’s neck tidy) within the first six weeks to help keep you looking sharp.

 

 

Do you have a redo policy ?

At Medusa, we stand behind every hair cut we create, and we want you to be delighted with it: "mehh" is not good enough for you, and its not good enough for us. Some times as stylists, we don't quite understand precisely what vision you have in your mind - we always try to find out, but once in a very long while, we miss the spot. And if you want an adjustment or tweak on your hair, come back within two weeks of your cut or colour and we'll sort it out. No questions asked. (well, ok, we probably will ask what you want  corrected, but you know what we mean).

The truth is that we genuinely do want to know if you're not happy with any part of our service - but please please do let us know, either at the time or by emailing the owner colin@medusahair.co.uk afterwards and give us a second chance to convince you. Great hairdressing starts with great communication, to get the perfect style for you, so if your visit isn’t going exactly as you want or you’ve maybe got a wee inkling that we haven’t quite understood, then please please tell us - we won't be offended at all, quite the opposite – we want you to love your hair and every minute of your visit...talk to us ;)

 

 

Can i ask for my favourite track on Spotify ?

 Yup. Totally. In fact, it might even help us with your hair if it puts us in the right mood ....and for that same reason, maybe a thrash metal track ain't such a good idea on a tuesday morning....you know - right time, right place for everything, etc, etc

 

 

My friend and family say i could be a model - can I ?

tbh, if the relative in question is your gran, then we would first like a second opinion, but if you do seriously think you have what it takes to take part in one of the catwalk shows or editorial/portfolio photoshoots, then read on.

We regularly participate in national and international competitions, as well as key industry training events. These are often fashion-driven, and for this reason, we would love to hear from you if you think you can fit into that type of environment. It's not easy (you'll be walking down a catwalk at most events in front of lots people effortlessly looking like a total bitch who owns the place), but it's an experience that most people would die to do at least once in their life. We are also frequently looking for models for editorial and portfolio photoshoots (which are less intimidating than catwalk shows but still great fun). If you're interested in living a life less ordinary, then please get in touch with colin@medusahair.co.uk

 

 

Reduced price cuts for hair models for junior stylists

If you don't want to be a model model (see above), but instead want to be a model for one of our qualified-but-less-experienced junior stylists (working under the supervision of the senior creative team at all times), then we offer significant discounts at our Bread St salon on Tuesday. Call for more info.

 

 

Are dogs welcome ?

 Cuddly, well-behaved dogs are welcome at our salons. Sorry, no wolves allowed (...we don't care how much you were influenced by Twilight all those years ago)

 

 

Anything else you'd like to tell me ?

At our Bread St salon (ie between Grassmarket and Lothian Road), we have an entire studio space  in the basement that is available for hire from £20+VAT per hour. It's a flexible space - perfect for dance and exercise classes, seminars, beauty courses, photo shoots, group meetings, and pretty much anything else apart from reenacting medieval battlefields. The mirrored studio has its own reception area, refreshments station and washroom facilities, equipped with an audio system, stage and projector screen. Contact Rhonda on 0131 622 7277 or e-mail breadst@medusahair.co.uk

 

 

What is your policy on free puppies ?

Similar to our Redo Policy (see above), we always want to know how we can do better. So if you have any ideas for how we can make improvements in our salon (eg a favourite drink or magazine), then tell us and we'll see what we can do. Please note, however, that while we love Jasmine's idea (aged 5), we have decided against giving clients a free puppy, no matter how  incredibly cute they are).
