Whether you're looking to get dolled up for a special occasion or just fancy spoiling yourself, Edinburgh has a variety of salons and beauticians ready to primp and pamper you. Here's a look at three places offering ways to get all spruced up.
Founded by Edinburgh-born Kirsty Maccormick, who has just recently returned to the city after spending time in Asia, this nail salon showcases her extensive knowledge of all things natural. She has a career spanning 26 years in the wellness, spa and beauty industry so you will be in safe hands (no pun intended).
The salon features a range of all natural products from the likes of Kure Bazaar, Orly, Margaret Dabbs and Green & Spring, which most recently has only been found in London salons. Services on offer include natural nail polishes, pedicures and treatments for men, all using the least amount of chemicals possible. A signature manicure lasts approximately 45 minutes and you'll be treated to a fruity smoothie beforehand.
Don't forget to check out the amazing nail stamps that can be applied in any colour, and a printing machine for nails will soon be arriving - so if you fancy having your face printed onto your nails, this is the place to go! They also have a selection of quirky adult colouring books which are a therapeutic way of spending your time while getting a pedicure.
