Bought a voucher off Groupon. Arrived early but was kept waiting an additional 30 minutes due to previous customer turning up late. Manicure was done by an untrained girl because the person meant to be doing it was still with the previous customer. Had to ask for two coats and a topcoat otherwise she would have just done one coat. Nails chipped within a day. Spoke to manager who offered no apology and seemed rude. Would avoid at all costs. The worst salon experience I have had

Pretty sure they use superglue instead of proper nail adhensive and wash their cups with spit and an old bit of fishing net. Nearly cried when I watched a woman who had been sitting in the ''hairdressing chair'' for about 5 hours walk out with a similar (but worse) haircut to Borris Johnson. I had gel nails done here for a wedding - a huge regret. They were uneven, they fell off and had hair and fluff stuck in the gel (which set). I had to rip them off before I went to the wedding which left my real nail damaged for months. When I asked for my money back, I was refused by the disinterested girl at the counter. They were done by a girl who expressed ''the manager just roped me into doing this - i'm not even a nail technician.'' How professional! They loop the same Bruno Mars tribute CD over and over and over again, I know this because I was in the salon for 4 HOURS (hell). The staff are completely bizarre in a very unwelcoming way, the whole ambiance of the shop is like a morgue. I do not like giving bad reviews. I sound a harsh for good reason, the entire experience was just DIRE! I do not recommend this place to anyone - unless you enjoy looking like post-mud bath bison.

I was visiting a friend in Edinburgh and got drenched in rain a day before so got my hair all stick up as it's really dry & frizzy, wasn't carrying any of my hair products or styling tools so decided to go for a cheap wash & blow dry some-where nearby & came across Melek's, they had this offer going on (£10 for wash & blow dry) I though yeah fine, my hair's short (shoulder length) & it's just wash & blow dry, anyone can do that, even a trainee..!!! but I was wrong......!!
I went into this place, looked gloomy, like it hasn't been visited a lot, not very welcoming or attractive, staff/owner were nice though, not too much wait. I was shampooed, conditioned & then blow-dried by a trainee I think (she dint even know how to section hair or hold the blow dryer) but her head massage was goooood, no offense to her (sweet girl) but the Owner or style director wasn't really training his trainee.....he looked confused himself, was blow drying another client's hair since an hour and the final result wasn't very impressive to me......anyway after an hour or so of struggle I came out with straight but frizzy hair & super dry flaky scalp because the lady just blowed all the hot air onto my scalp, twas on fire.....I just stayed & kept quite thinking twas my mistake to go for a "cheap" deal..!!
SO HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED.....!!

I bought a Groupon Voucher for manicure and pedicure, they asked me for 8 pounds more to add color on toes and fingers! This was the worst mani & pedi I have ever had, they didn't do anything than putting some cream and topcoat on my nails. I showed the results to my friends and nobody could understand that I had just got my nails done. I just wasted my time and my money. The worst service ever. Please avoid it if you can.

Good value eyebrow threading and I was very pleased with the result. slightly tricky to get an appt time to suit me as the therapist also does hair extensions so was booked out for prolonged periods

I felt this was good value at £5 for eyebrow threading, the therapist was friendly and thorough and I was pleased with the shape. Perharps not the fanciest salon or best ambience but good value for money and a good result.

Shoddy nails, false advertisement for the discount, strange staff. Plenty of better places in this area. Do not go here.

I visited Melek's after purchasing a deal on Wowcher for a half head of hair extensions. to say I was disapointed is an understatement! The deal was £59, I had to pay an extra £45 for "extra" hair they apparently used. she cut them straight along the bottom, any hairdresser should know not to cut hair extensions straight as they dont grow! the next day when I saw them in daylight they where a completely different colour to my hair and where not blended in. I phoned to tell them I wasnt happy, that I wanted them out and a full refund, she told me I wouldnt get a refund and I never asked for them to be blended in (thought that was the job of the hairdresser to do being the professional and all) after arguing with Angela on the phone for over half an hour, she agreed to take them out and told me to contact Wowcher for a refund of £59, I asked about the extra £45 I had paid and she said that she would be out of pocket if she gave me it........so was I! Customer is always right, my first time getting extensions fitted and had the worst experience ever! Avoid if you can!!!
