    Default Salon in Central Edinburgh

    Hello Ladies,

    I need some assistance with finding a salon that can do hair and make up in central Edinburgh - living afar means I have no clue where these things are!

    I'm planning to stay at The George Hotel the night before so want somewhere nearby to go for hair and make up before we move on to the venue to finish getting ready (can only check in to venue from 12 so need to have hair and make up done before going there otherwise we wont have enough time!).

    My sister used Angus Gordon on Federick Street and it was lovely, so thinking of going there for a trial (they are rather pricey though) so if anyone has any other suggestions that would be great. There will be 5 of us needing hair and make up to be done in the morning and girls may well want their nails done too.

    Please give me some clues!!

    I don't know Edinburgh at all but my wedding make up is being done by Christine - http://www.makeupbychris.co.uk/ - She has a studio in Edinburgh (not sure how central) but you could go there with your girls for hair/make up. She is really lovely, I know she does groups of hens from her studio etc before their nights out so worth a shot.

    She is really lovely and I am sure she would be a calming influence on the big day.

    (I am sure she would also go to the George if that is possible)

    Good luck.

    xxxxx

    Thanks. Have booked a trial at the place my sister used, I think I am just too lazy to research/investigate alternative options!

    Hiya, on George Street there is Tony & Guy (http://www.toniandguy.com/salon/information/168) & Cheynes (http://www.cheyneshairdressing.com). Just down from the George is Charlie Miller (http://www.charliemiller.com/salons/salons.asp?catID=17) They are all really good hairdressers.

    A little bit further up the road (5 mins in a taxi) - somewhere like Medusa on Bread Street (http://www.medusahair.co.uk/salons.cfm?salon=bread%20st) are great and do hair, make up and nails in the one place. Their prices are quite good too - 37 for a Mac make up artist, hair up do between 28 & 40

    Jenners (part of House of Frasers) is two minutes from The George too. I know alot of the make up counters, Chanel, Bobby Brown etc have make up assistants that do wedding make up if booked in advance.

    The other option might be to look into mobile hair / make up companies in Edinburgh that can come to your hotel in the morning.
