Effortless Beach Waves for Quick Styling

Are your mornings tight before lectures? Worry not, for the latest trend in hair fashion encompasses wonderfully simple beach waves that can be customised to your desired level of tousle. Achieving these breezy waves is as easy as a little scrunching accompanied by the application of a texturising product.

Alternatively, if your hair naturally leans towards straight, you have the option to create well-defined curls on a day with ample styling time, and then enjoy relaxed waves on the next day, aided by a spritz of dry shampoo.

Embrace Your Curls

Got curls? Love them! The McGills stylists offer a range of in-salon treatments and at-home hair care products meticulously tailored to hydrate your curls, calm any frizz, and give structure to your spirals.

These treatments render your curls not just beautiful but also simple to style and uphold, working well with your busy student life.

Balayage: Trendy & Low Maintenance Hair Colour

In search of a striking hair colour while remaining conscious of maintenance expenses? The answer lies with balayage! This artistic technique, manually applied to your hair, emulates the sun's natural highlighting effect, boasting regrowth that blends more seamlessly than conventional highlights—meaning fewer visits to our Edinburgh salon.

Balayage pairs seamlessly with a variet of colours including delicate pastels, bold fashion shades, and the ever-popular blonde and brunette blends. 

Cool Hairstyles for Guys

Male students seeking a hairstyle beyond the ordinary short back and sides need look no further than McGills Hairdressing in Edinburgh. Take inspiration from model and athlete Romeo Beckham, whose penchant for innovative styles and colours mirrors that of his famous father.

Whether you're looking for an effortlessly cool yet practical style or a cool fashion-forward hair colour, our colour specialists stand poised to deliver a distinctive look that turns heads this term.
