Our Story

Sleeping Beauty is a family business founded in 1999 in Lerwick Shetland. In 2006 it became 'Sleeping Beauty Salon Limited' when we expanded by opening in Inverness under the directorship of Lilac Miller and her mother Glenys Miller.  Glenys sadly passed away in 2014 after loosing her battle with Colon Cancer.  During the last few years we have undergone a period of rapid expansion, opening our Edinburgh salon in 2012 and relocating our Lerwick Salon in 2013 before opening our Palace Hotel Salon in Inverness and expanding our Margaret Street Salon in 2014 . In 2016 we opened our latest salon based at the Radisson Blu Hotel on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. In Summer 2018 we opened a location in Aviemore and a second site in conjunction with Radisson Hotels at the 5 star Radisson Collection Hotel in Edinburgh, this is currently being refurbished.  In the future we hope to expand into new areas across Scotland. The salons all have their own unique features but offer the same high quality treatments with excellent customer care. Lilac Miller is Managing Director and oversees operations at all 6 locations but is based at the Margaret Street Salon.  You can find out more about our team here.

We aim to combine excellent treatments carried out in a relaxing environment by the best therapists using the best products. We believe treatments should focus on the inner beauty as well as outer and leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to face the world again! We believe that it's the little things that make the difference and so if we can do anything to improve your experience at Sleeping Beauty we will.  Just ask!
