Hairdresser required…apply within

We are looking to recruit a part time, hairdresser to join our Bruntsfield salon.

We’re looking for a stylist with minimum three years hairdressing experience, competent in all areas of hairdressing including cutting, colouring and styling.

Miss Dixiebelle was established in 2010 specialising in vintage style hair and makeup and has built up a great reputation and loyal clientele.  Although we’re looking for a hairdresser to offer modern cuts and colours they would ideally have an interest in vintage and alternative styling as well as a passion for colour to compliment the rest of the salon.

The position will be part time to begin with, with a view to extending hours in the future, working on a self-employed basis. Flexible working hours are available, although Saturdays are essential.

To find out more about Miss Dixiebelle, take a look at our website and click on the hair and beauty page.

If you are interested in this position, please email with CV and if possible with images of your work


We are very much looking forward to hearing from you!

If you’ve visited us recently you’ll have noticed that Miss Dixiebelle has had a bit of a makeover. We’ve lost all the lingerie from the back of the shop in favour of a brand new hair and beauty salon! We still have our downstairs salon which we’ll be using mostly for our Vintage Hen Parties, extra busy days and eventually treatments plus we still have plenty space for all your favourite repro vintage clothing lines at the front of the shop (it’s a tardis in here!)

The new salon houses Cutiecool nails who specialises in those classic 1940′s half moon nails amongst lots of other things, check out her site for a full list of services and prices.

We have also welcomed Angela to the MDB team, a hairdresser with 20 years in the business she’s a regular on the Rockabilly scene so knows her midi cuts from her ‘Bettie Bangs’ as well as being an awesome colourist who’s not afraid to bring out the bleach and ‘Crazy Colours’ when asked!

In addition to colouring, we’ve also added wet sets, perming and pamper packages to our list of services. For more information on any of this visit our Edinburgh parlour page here: or call 0131 629 7783.

To celebrate our new salon and services we’re offering a 20% discount on cuts, colours and perms with Angela, up to and including Saturday 12th April 2014 (offer excludes vintage hair and makeup, nails and pamper packages) Her next available date is Saturday 15th March, call 0131 629 7783 to book

Sale time and party frocks at Miss Dixiebelle!

The Ava dress by Pinup Girl Clothing in teal (also available in black)

New Glamour Bunny Dresses have just arrived at Miss Dixiebelle

It’s that time of year again where we’re all thinking about what to wear for our New Year parties and nights out. We’ve recently had a delivery from British Designer ‘Glamour Bunny’ just in time for your Hogmanay antics. If, like me you’re feeling the effects of over indulging over these last few days, fear not. Glamour Bunny dresses are famed for their flattering cuts in classic 1950′s shapes. (With the right underwear no one will ever know!…naturally we recommend What Katie Did)

Also, back in stock is the Ava dress by our favourite American company Pinup Girl Clothing. We currently have it in Teal and Black. The wrap over detail around the middle and capped sleeve again make it a flattering choice that everyone seems to look great in!

If you prefer a full skirted look we have this amazing striped, full circle dress, with lined and boned bodice. Team it with a coloured underskirt for some added fun and to perfectly enhance that 1950′s silhouette. It also comes in a red version with cute gingham pockets and a removable halter strap.

You can find all our new stock here :

We’ve also been spending today sorting out what’s going the sale…You’ll find all of those here:


Happy Holidays you lovely people!

Vintage Valentines styling evening at Miss Dixiebelle

Well, the decs are packed away for another year and the New Year’s
Resolutions are firmly in place (or already broken?) so it’s time to turn our
attention to February, and with it of course Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re already
smitten, a single gal or even a cynical heartbreaker we have an evening planned
to banish those winter blues. We’re spreading the love Dixiebelle style!

We’re very excited to be joined by Karen Barr of ‘Beswitchedon’
Karen decribes herself as   a ‘Professional
Fairy Godmother’ and teaches a practical and fun approach to help you attract

However, as we know you’re not all single, Karen will be
concentrating on a ‘Flirting’ class. A skill that that can be used in all
aspects of life whether you’re married or searching for your Don Draper (other stereotypical
50’s male icons are available)

We’ll also be basing our styling tutorial on a ‘make him
look twice’ look, perfect for date night! This will be demonstrated by Ariana
and Layla, our resident aficionados in retro styling.

We’ll finish the evening off with an exclusive burlesque
performance by the beautiful Miss Leyla Rose. Swoon!

As well as all this of course there will be time for
shopping with a 10% discount on the night, fizz in teacups and some sweet
nibbles to keep us going.

I’ll be on hand to do corset fits and Ariana, Layla and
Natasha are open to vintage hair and makeup questions.

Tickets are £20.00, places are limited to just 20 and are
available now! Call 0131 629 7783 to book yours.

Love Miss Dixiebelle xx
