Established in 2009 by owner Laura Taylor, The Secret Beauty Garden is a salon with a difference. From our soothing environment, to our relaxing treatments tailored to suit individual needs, we offer an experience designed to help you to escape the stresses and strains of daily life.
We truly are a salon with heart whose aim is to ensure that you feel good both inside and out. Our approach is a nurturing one which focuses on the holistic connection between body, mind and soul. We strive to heal people from within.That’s why we have a well-being page, relaxation packages as well as additional holistic therapies. We also now run outreach, pop-up retreats in office buildings across Edinburgh.
Laura wanted to create an escape in the city that offered its clients a place to truly rest and recharge. The journey began in a converted garage in Roseburn where she began offering treatments in an environment for people to forget their everyday worries. 5 years on, her tranquil, secluded haven relocated to the city centre.
The Secret Beauty Garden is now a social enterprise.
Our mission: ‘To help people live happier lives’
The social enterprise mission has 2 branches to it.
The first is to help run pop-up retreats for people who suffer from stress, anxiety and depression.
Too many people suffer on a daily basis from mental illness and stress whether it be from traumatic life experiences or everyday life events themselves.
Life can be so hard that people can become so focused on the negative they forget any good. We offer a safe space for people to come and breathe, relax and heal a negative mind through a variety of treatments.
The second branch is to provide beauty training courses to help women into employment.
Our aim is to equip each participant with the therapeutic skills and essential practical experience and knowledge within a real life, nurturing work environment.
Welcome to our haven in the city. Let us help guide you back to a place of calm.
We’ve got your back.
We are a community interest company
Your mental health matters to us more than profit
The entire place is one lush, warm, snug of an environment which removes you instantly from the hustle and bustle of the city. The treatment rooms are wee havens of soothing tranquillity with gentle lighting and the staff are welcoming and friendly, quick to offer you a refreshment of your choice.
I love coming to the Secret Beauty Garden for many reasons: the staff are really friendly, the treatments are great and the Elemis products they use are lovely!
Having my nails done at the Secret Beauty Garden was a very nice experience. Laura, was really friendly and took very good care of me by making sure that they are perfect. They are still great almost one week on! I can't wait to go again! I have also been having IPL treamtent and has worked so well i now get multiple areas treated
I have been going to the SBG for over 4 years and wouldn't go anywhere else. All the girls are absolutely lovely. The salon is beautifully furnished, clean and smells just gorgeous. I've had massages, eyelashes, waxing, facials and nails (extensions and shellac) and I'm about to start a course of IPL. I never feel rushed, appointments run on time and the girls listen to what you want from a treatment (sometimes a different part of my back needs more work or I'm having trouble with my skin and they adjust the treatment accordingly). I always feel relaxed and refreshed after being here (to the point I've dropped off several times during different treatments!). The products used are high quality and the staff are highly skilled and trained. I'm always well looked after and I love my visits to this little bit of heaven.
I haven't been to a more tranquil, relaxed and peaceful beauty salon as the Secret Beauty Garden. Laura and her team have the ambience to make you feel at home while providing the most heavinly treatments. You leave the salon feeling like a new person!! This will be my only choice of beauty salon.
I can't recommend the Secret Beauty Garden highly enough: wonderful treatments in a relaxing atmosphere at reasonable prices. Friendly staff and real attention to detail.
Beautiful, friendly salon. All the girls are so welcoming and I am always made to feel special. They have me for life now!
Amazing salon. So relaxing and friendly and by far the best massages and facials I have ever had (and I've had a few!!!)
