Salon owner Colin McAndrew celebrates 10 years in business this month -with his award-winning Medusa salon group based in Edinburgh and now employing more than 70 staff across four premises. As well as getting the drinks in, HairClubLive member Colin, and his business partner Kym Wyser (owner of Medusa Grassmarket) have announced an across the board pay-rise to every single member of the group’s team – totalling £46,000 a year increase to the wage bill. Way to go Colin! The joyful news was shared at the company’s annual awards on Sunday 11 June – a Summer bonus to the lucky, loyal staff. “We’ve faced some tricky times in the past decade when I wasn’t sure if we could pay the wages,” Colin told the gathering from the four Medusa salons. ‘It’s been a tough ten years, slowly building the company, but we are doing well now, clear of any debt, and that is down to you guys, so you are all going to benefit.’ The increase was implemented immediately – the following day! – with Colin confirming: ‘This isn’t a one-off bonus, this is an increase in your annual pay which you will get every year from now on”.
