About Us

A few words about us

Let us introduce ourselves

At Urban Edinburgh we are committed to delivering the ultimate salon experience, we are not simply another hairdressers in Edinburgh.

We deliver inspirational creative cutting and colour, not to mention classic cutting styles or simplistic colouring.

Blowdrying/Curls? we love that too!

Obviously, we’re hot on hair care but we also like to look after our clients. This means

        • complimentary Gin & Tonic, Brewdog Beers, Cappuccino, Espresso, Macchiato, Latte, Coke, Diet Coke, Irn Bru, Pepsi Max, Spring Water, Pukka Herbal Teas,  (as well as the usual  suspects)
        • a text or email appointment reminder

We aim to be as green as we can

This is why we use Eco Heads and Scrummi Towels

We are using less energy and saving water

Eco Heads have a unique filtration-system helps to reduce chlorine and generates negative ions as water goes through, which softens the hair for a smoother end result.

Thanks to the purifying qualities of the filter screens, this original product also removes sediment, rust and sand for cleaner water.

A fresh Scrummi Towel is used on every client, these are fully biodegradable

We are a Member of the Green Salon Collective, we recycle the unrecyclable. Your hair, hair foils, metal colour tubes are recycled

We use Vegware cups that are made from plants and they are fully compostable

Urban Edinburgh does not charge any Green Fee in the salon. This ones on us!

I have been coming to Urban for roughly two years and have always come away really happy with my haircut. The staff are top notch, really friendly and brilliant at what they do. Complimentary drinks is always a nice touch too. Will be coming back for many years to come. Highly recommended

I’m my opinion this is one of the premier establishments to get a quality hair style or colour . I visit Keith love and I highly recommend his services , he is very polite and always feel satisfied with his service .

I have had my hair cut and coloured three times at Urban and I have always been happy with the result. When I have an idea of what I would like Greg has always listened and managed to make my hair look like the picture I have given him! When I am not so sure he has given me tips and helped me to find a colour and style that suits me, he is also very friendly! The deal at Urban for student Tuesday is amazing, and I really appreciate that I can have a high quality hairdressing experience at such good prices
First visit to the Salon and won’t be my last!Recommended to me by my sister… very welcoming, great prices and most importantly brilliant hairdresser! I got a re-style with Greg and I love it… I felt so pampered
Great salon, never had a bad haircut here (and I’m very particular). Staff are all really friendly and great at what they do. Wish I’d found them sooner!

I have been going to Urban for the last few years and have never been disappointed. During that time I have seen two great stylists in Mark and more latterly in Greg. They are happy to give advice or on the odd occasion when I know what I am looking for they have delivered brilliantly. I can get appointments at times that suit and the friendly and professional customer service is exemplary. On top of all this I think its good value too!

Used for a couple of years and always got a great cut. Staff are always upbeat and friendly. Definitely pop in and rate them yourself, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

This was my first visit to Urban after being recommended by a friend. Greg cut and coloured my hair, I was really impressed with the colour, he advised me to go for something different, I was a bit wary at first, but he explained it clearly to me and promised me I would like it lol.  My cut was good too. Salon atmosphere was really friendly and I got a glass of wine that I wasn’t expecting.

I used just to grab the cheapest groupon or discount cut I could find, as I am pretty short of cash. But, once I landed here with a groupon/  Living Social deal I decided to stick to having my hair cut by Greg because I was fed up with students messing up my hair or one recently who cut my neck with the scissors and then burnt my scalp with the hairdryer!. Greg cuts my hair really well which is the main thing. Add to this the friendly staff and nice atmosphere and I am a loyal customer. I appreciate the coffee/ beverages provided. Price is reasonable for central Edinburgh and this Christmas he gave me a bonus colour for £10 which I was thrilled with! Greg has now taken over the salon and with his friendly,. kind demeanour and his ideas to promote the salon I think this salon will go to strength to strength! Recommended!

I have been coming to Stephen at Urban Hair Salon for a few years now. I love my visits to the salon you get amazing hair, good chat and a lovely salon environment! Every visit I leave a very happy customer! Stephen is an excellent hair dresser and always gives great advice on what to do with my hair and it always looks perfect! Thank you Stephen:)
