Who we are

"Our business is helping you to look and feel fantastic".

Where artistry, science and hairdressing meet, you find Rainbow Room International. Scotland’s hair colour experts (all of our stylists have Schwarzkopf Colour Master Degrees), we were the first in the country to use foils, and to consider face shape, skin tone and eye colour when creating client looks.

Our artistic team is often first-choice to style celebrity hair at major events such as the MOBOs, London Fashion Week, T in the Park and the MTV EMAs. What we love the most is giving every one of the 10,000 clients who visit our salons each month the VIP treatment.

How we work

"The most important person in our salons is you."

Technically brilliant cutting, colouring and styling is our expertise, but it’s just one aspect of the RRI experience. From the moment you arrive at the salon, our Front of House team will make you feel welcome and at ease. And before you even reach the wash station, your stylist will give you an in-depth consultation - considering your hair type, face shape, personality and lifestyle in order to create a truly bespoke look.

We never stop learning and perfecting our techniques, so whether you want a classic cut with a contemporary twist, or a cutting-edge colour effect, you’ll be in good hands. Even as we’re applying the finishing touches, you’ll be learning great tips to maintain and recreate the salon look at home. It’s all part of our commitment to building client confidence and trust.

Our story

The first Rainbow Room International salon opened on Glasgow’s Buchanan Street in 1979, and the brand has grown into one that’s synonymous with quality, luxury and innovation. Now we are the largest salon group in Scotland, with 12 contemporary salons across Glasgow, Ayr and Stirling, and a range of our own haircare products.

Since 2003, we also have our own Training Academy, cultivating the next crop of Scotland’s top hair stylists, and training qualified professionals from all over the country. Globally, our Artistic Team is renowned for creative and educational excellence, and they travel far and wide to impart their expertise.

Over the years, our philosophy of constant change and continual improvement has never wavered. Inspired and supported by company owners - husband and wife Alan and Linda Stewart – everyone in the Rainbow Room family shares the same aims: to embrace change and continually progress to stay ahead of the industry.

"Our constant commitment to training ensures that you will receive passionate and excellent service".
