    Had a cut and blow dry last Thursday at the West End salon before my holiday. Jamy did an excellent cut, thank you. Highly recommended.

    First time visiting Cheynes and received a lovely warm welcome. Craig, who I would highly recommend, was a funny guy, and had given us some really good sound tips, without being too pushy. The end results, a fab haircut! Definitely wouldn't hesitate in going back there again. Thank you Craig.

    I have tried 3 different hair salons in Edinburgh, and I have to say that LISA at Cheynes Lothian Rd is by far the best! She actually sits down to listen to what I want, explains the complexity of how colouring works, and was very empathetic when I had a hair colour disaster. More importantly, she fixed it for me! :-) It's my second time at Cheynes for a cut, colour/colour correction and olaplex treatment, and I'll being going back to Lisa again for my entire time here in Edinburgh. I am a student, so I do find it a bit pricey- but there is a student discount! And I am willing to pay a little more to have my hair done correctly the first time. Thank you Lisa!

    I got the LVL lash treatment from Emily before going on holiday - what a lovely atmosphere in her little salon at the back of the main salon and a great treatment especially good for during the day on holiday when I couldn't be bothered wearing mascara. And an even better effect when I did apply mascara. The LVL treatment does what it says, I'll definitely be getting it again...….thanks Emily x

    I had never been to Cheynes before but having walked past it a hundred times and being recommended to visit it by numerous customers I figured why not? I had been gifted some birthday money and decided to treat myself to a decent hair cut. I have no regrets. The service was impeccable, Petra, my stylist, did a wonderful job making my dull, boring hair look glamorous and healthy again. I walked out the salon feeling like a new woman and have had dozens of compliments. Petra, thank you a million times for your patience, understanding and amazing skills. You did an amazing job on my awful hair. I will definitely visit again. Thank you. Xx

    I go to Cheynes West End on a regular basis to get my hair cut and it's such a relaxing experience. The staff are nice and make you feel at ease and they are excellent at cutting, styling or colouring hair. When you get your hair washed, the chairs vibrate and you can put your feet up while getting a head massage. It's the most relaxing experience I've had at a salon. I get Alexandria to cut & style my hair and she is amazing. Oh and one more thing. The staff aren't snooty like most salons. I've been going there for two years and wouldn't go anywhere else.

    Had a full head highlights today with added lowlights by Courtney... I'm usually super fussy as I have so much short fluff/ snapped hair near the front. Highlights are so fine and packed in looks so natural !!!! Super happy and a lovely experience from all. Thank You for making me feel human again xx

    Visited Cheynes York Place last week and got a short haircut and a slight colour both for the first time ever and couldn't be happier with my hair! Kristy done an amazing job, constantly checking if it was okay for me and made slight suggestions that really made the haircut a better cut I feel! Would definitely recommend Kristy and I now have a permanent hair dressers as I'll definitely be going back to her for my future cuts! Rest of the team seemed lovely too and were really chatty to everyone which was nice!

    First visit for me today and I am so glad my daughter recommended Cheynes in York Place. They managed to squeeze me in for a cut and blow dry with only a days notice - so very impressed. I am thrilled with my cut/style by Kristy - will be visiting again and I can definitely recommend Cheynes to others!

    Had a gents cut with Jamie at Cheynes West End and was really impressed as he was interested in finding out exactly what I wanted from my appointment. Very good service all round.

    Feedback based upon a friend's recommendation - for now! But I will be moving to Edinburgh shortly and Cheynes will definitely become my salon! I believe he has had his hair done by a couple of other people here too, but the past couple of times by Sarah, and he totally raves about her - both as a stylist and a person, and to me a connection is vital, it's not just about how someone styles your hair. He travels a lot with his job, and he's had in hair done in many renowned salons, and before Cheynes, when at home in Edinburgh, he used to go to Sassoon, that's how highly he rates this salon - and Sarah in particular!
