Darlingtons has been in Kilbirnie for nearly 40 years; In 2017 Melissa Tovey became the proud new owner, bringing in new ideas and a new outlook for the salon.

Darlingtons has always been a family orientated salon and we will continue that tradition, we welcome new clients of any age.  Whether you're an older adult, bringing in your child for their very first hair cut or anywhere in between; we can cater for your needs at Darlingtons.

Everyone deserves to have a great hair cut but not to be broke afterwards; Which is why we believe in great hair at affordable prices.

Darlingtons has a relaxed atmosphere, free 1 hour parking out front  or completely free, only a block away, fun and experienced staff (our staff attend regular training courses to keep our skills up to date).


We look forward to seeing you soon.​​

She doesn’t take life too seriously but at the same time, likes to keeps things professional


Mel loves interaction with clients, excels at creative colour and cutting work.  So if you’re wanting a new style or a bit of colour in your life, Mel’s your go to girl!
