About Us



Jennifer Cheyne OBE opened the first Cheynes Salon with just one assistant in 1976.  Today we have more than 130 superbly trained and highly motivated staff in five salons throughout the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

Our highly trained team are experts in their craft, whether it be cut, colour, bridal & long hair, extensions or the fabulous Kebelo Smoothing System.

All our specialists will listen and advise on exactly the right look for you. Our colour specialists have completed the highest level of training available in the industry and we have at least one hair colour expert in each of our salons. 

 As well as creating fabulous hair on a daily basis, we are recognised as an award-winning international salon which educates hairdressers around the globe. 

Jennifer (pictured left) and her Art Team travel the world presenting shows and seminars which resulted in the opening of the Cheynes Academy in 1988, along with Managing Director, Paul Adamczuk.  

Jennifer Cheyne’s contribution to the industry has also been recognised at the highest level and she was thrilled to be awarded an OBE in The Queen’s New Year Honours List 2014.
