Cheynes West End

Cheynes ‘West End’ is a hub of creativity, experience and excellence. Established in 1986 it is a beautiful, airy,  glass fronted salon situated at 3 Drumsheugh Place and literally minutes from Princes Street.


The West End of Edinburgh has seen a major renaissance of late, with the upheaval of the Tram works being just a memory.

New shops and business are opening up daily. It is a vibrant and cool part of the city, with bars and eateries, fabulous coffee shops and deli’s, quirky gift shops, accessories and homeware stores all making the streets an exciting and energised place.

The Dean village is also close by, perfect for when you want to escape city life but not leave it!

The team at Cheynes ‘West End’, well it’s fair to say that experience is the key word here!

With a combined ‘230’ years of hairdressing under their belt, the Cheynes West End team offer an incredible wealth of knowledge and expertise to their clients. One of the amazing attributes of our ‘West End’ team is their ongoing desire to still be at the very forefront of creative, high-quality hairdressing and offering a truly first class service to our West End clients.

Cheynes West End is where you will find LeeAnne, who is not only one of our managers but also the Head of Colour within the salon. LeeAnne has been a member of the prestigious Wella Colour Club, teaching both in our Academy and throughout the UK as an ambassador for Cheynes and Wella. The colour knowledge in the salon is truly awe-inspiring as the entire team are trained to the very highest of standards, so you, the client, can relax in the knowledge that you are in very safe hands.


The salon has a superb management team in LeeAnne, Jayne and Cheryl, who as a team ensure the salon is a fabulous place for our clients to visit. Jayne is an amazing multi-talented hairdresser with a smile that would brighten the darkest of rooms. Cheryl heads up reception and is the first point of contact at the salon. Client service is paramount to Cheryl and with her friendly, professional approach the clients feel at ease as soon as they arrive.

The rest of the team! Billy, Wendy, Caroline, Andrea, Christine, Missy, Blair, Nicole, Lori and Jamie truly encapsulate what the word team means. They are not only great hairdressers who deliver amazing work each and every day, but they are also professional, friendly and caring. 

Let’s not forget our Assistants – our hairdressers of the future – Beatrix, Natalie, Keir, Katie, Alex who are all making sure that ‘you’ the client is the most important person in the salon.

The most recent additions to the team are Caroline and Nicole both from our South Bridge Salon, Caroline brings a wealth of experience to the salon and her passion for hairdressing and fashion is unparallelled. They are a very welcome addition to the salon and all the team are thrilled at the vibe and energy they have brought with them.



Our retail shop is packed full of haircare products that make for an easy experience when choosing something for your hair. Of course the team are always on hand to give advice about each range.

Whether it be the new Wella System Professional range, (make sure and ask about your unique Energy Code) or Sebastian, a cool range with fabulous products for all hair types.

We also specialise in Nioxin, a range of treatment shampoo, conditioners, styling and finishing products designed to help people suffering from hair-loss or who are worried that their hair is not as strong as it used to be .

A sensitive subject, but our team fully understand the emotional impact of hairloss and how it can affect you, we are here to help and Nioxin is a fabulous science based product which our clients have found to be very effective. We also use and retail wonderful products from Paul Mitchell, Morrocan Oil and GHD.

Cheynes ‘West End’ is also home to our Academy where hairdressers come to visit us and participate in our Educational Courses, The Academy is (and always has been) a hive of creativity, it’s where the artistic team meet to plan collections, where new ideas are brought to life and where each and every member of Cheynes is educated in the culture, philosophy and unique hairdressing skills of our company.

We will soon be launching a ‘New Blow Dry Service’ in the salon so check back on the blog real soon for an update on this exciting service!
