Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice

We have worked hard to support our staff and community during these challenging times, so it is with sadness that we have to announce the temporary closure of our Edinburgh salon from Saturday 21st March 2020. 

Thank you everyone for your wonderful messages of support and gratitude. Our team has been fantastic throughout this difficult period and really appreciate your support. We will do all we possibly can as a business to support our team. With that in mind, if you are in a position to buy a gift voucher now to be used when we reopen, that would be a fantastic way of supporting us.

You can buy a voucher online here

Our industry is about social interaction, and as a salon we cannot and will not play a part in bringing people together at a time when the world needs us to stay apart.
We are currently going to be working on a week to week rotation list, so we can accommodate all clients on our return and when safe to do so. We have chosen to do it this way as no one knows how long this may go on for. This will mean that you will not be contacted by Heather or Sarah until the week of your appointment, which will allow us to manage all clients expectations as best possible.  We will also be running a cancellation list alongside this to accommodate as much as possible.

Please stay in touch by following us on Facebook or Instagram where we hope to inspire you, keep you entertained and uplifted. If you need help, advice or are simply feeling lonely and isolated, please contact us and one of our team will reach out to you.

Wishing you and your family good health and all the very best,

Susie Jones
Fantastic salon, all the staff here are lovely. I get my hair cut and coloured by Maya, who is an amazing hairdresser, she works actual miracles with hair colour!! I received a blow-dry from Ellie today who is currently training. She was very attentive and ensured the heat was just right, and that it was styled to my liking. Highly recommend A+++
Thank you so much, Susie! We really appreciate your kind words. It was great having you in the salon today and your colour looks fab!! See you again soon 🙂

Cannot recommend McGills enough for their ethos and attention to customer happiness. I originally went to McGills for a balayage in time for summer. I naturally have very straight, black hair that is quite difficult to lift. I had been last year and Maya had done a wonderful job. This time I booked with Geles who was lovely and attentive. I left the salon and the balayage was perhaps a bit ashy compared to what I had in mind. I wear my hair very straight and middle parted so there is little forgiveness if any colour appears unblended or a bit sudden. Garry contacted me asking if I was happy and I asked for a wee fix. McGill’s customer service is faultless, no questions were asked and I was rebooked in for another session to get exactly what I wanted. This time I was with James who has an incredible eye for detail. He made me feel so welcome and this is not always the case with other salons if you are unhappy with the original result. I am so happy with what James has done; my hair is now much more blended and as warm as I originally envisioned. I will be rebooking with James to go lighter this summer for sure. I have already recommended him to friends who wanting to go lighter!
Thanks Kenya! We're so glad you're happy with it. We look forward to seeing you again soon ?

I can't seem to give more than one review, so just adding to my last one! Today-Heather gave me the prettiest ashy light blonde highlights through my hair getting the colour a bit colder and lighter. It is my dream colour and I am in love with it, she was also a really good laugh. Taylor styled my hair in beachy waves and gave my hair a stunning finish which I love- Thank you McGills for the best hair I've ever had � A few weeks ago- Maya gave me a beautiful blended ash brown and blonde colour that was exactly what I wanted as well as being really thoughtful in terms of upkeep and patient listening to exactly what I wanted!! I was beyond happy and Ellie gave me another 5* blow dry and style and was also lovely to chat with. A month ago -Taylor gave me an opalex treatment and a blow dry, my hair is super glossy and has the perfect amount of volume and curl to it ! He also applied rebalancing shampoo to my roots and helped me understand how to apply it so as to avoid an overly oily scalp. Really lovely hairdresser and fantastic to work with listening to exactly how I like my hair and making that a reality, super impressed! �
Thank you so much, Vivienne! It is always such a pleasure to have you in the salon. We are glad to hear you are happy with your hair, your colour is absolutely stunning ? We look forward to seeing you again soon x

Now , all I wanted was to say "hi " to my awesome hairdressers Garry and Heather who cut and coloured my hair for years back in Oxford , so I was visiting Edinburgh and walked into their salon and they were holding an event " Kebelo " which transforms your hair . I was so impressed by the demo and education and I consider myself as mega fussy . I was so lucky that Heather and Garry fit me in 2 hrs before they are actually open their salon(customer service that is !!!) Had the Kebelo treatment done , and I am loving my hair , must have treatment! It's shiny, glossy , falls easily into place , feels great ! Before it was frizzy and dry , hard to manage. So if your hair is hard to handle, that's the treatment to have . Once again , Garry and Heather are the best and I will definitely travel from London to Edinburgh again to have my hair done !

Had a lovely and very accurate colour consultation with Heather leading me to a beautiful job done by Robyn, my hair now looks exactly like I wanted it! Garry made me incredibly happy with my haircut and kindly gave me lots of nice advices. Taylor last but not least is a very kind and friendly face! Thanks for the experience! Will be back soon for sure!
Thanks for the lovely review, Valentina. We are so glad to hear that you had such a good experience and are happy with your new colour. We look forward to seeing you again soon 🙂

Mairi Giles
A big thank you to McGills for coming to the rescue at our charity event this afternoon. Gary came across to Central hall and cut the hair of people who are struggling with issues of poverty on a busy Saturday in the Salon. Everyone was delighted. They have also cut my hair and I can testify they are brilliant hairdressers as well as having big hearts!
Thank you, Mairi! We are always glad to help 🙂 We look forward to seeing you again next time x

Elizabeth Bowman
First experience in this salon today, having hair cut and styled by the lovely Taylor. Very happy with my new cut, and with his friendly professional consultation -asking all the right questions made me confident he understood what I needed, and he kept me informed throughout the process. Looking forward to next visit - all the staff were helpful and highly proficient with good quality equipment. Salon spacious, music good and not jarring, with very nice decor, ambience, and super-handy for bus stops!
Thanks for the fantastic review, Elizabeth! We are are so glad to hear that you had such a positive experience. We can't wait to see you again soon 🙂
