During our 50 year anniversary magazine we spoke to Frederick Street’s salon directors, India Miller and Natalie Cole. They spoke about what inspires them to create the perfect style. Here’s what they said:
“My toolbox helps me to bring to life whatever has inspired me. It’s my mini tool kit and allows me to instantly create what I have in my head, which often comes from things I’ve seen in pictures or fashion shoots. I’ve gathered all these unusual bits and bobs, collections of things that are precious to me, like vintage hairpins in various shapes and sizes.
My whole tool kit would fit into a suitcase, what with the hairdryers and all the other equipment, but this is my signature box. I like to keep it handy and very tidy, which I get endlessly teased about. It’s been lots of places with me. Wherever I am, I can open it up and start to work creating something. It’s my version of an artist’s box. Instead of paints and brushes, it has all my little knacks that are dear to me.”
“Being able to travel and see different parts of the world always inspires me. It complements my work as a stylist. I love going to other countries and seeing how people dress, what their hair is like, how they talk. It’s great to experience it and compare the differences. I’m originally from New Zealand. Now that I’m settled in Edinburgh, if I’m on holiday I’m exploring, immersing myself in other cultures and all kinds of locations, not just cities, and all year round.
The world is getting smaller. We don’t need to dream about going to the other side of it. We can do it and do it well. Travel encourages me to think outside the box and stops me from becoming stale in my work or run the risk of boring my clients by not being able to offer a change. Wherever I go it’s good to bring something back.
I like to push boundaries.”
What client’s love about Frederick Street Stylists:
“I have been a client of Charlie Millers for a number of years now and would not wish to go anywhere else. Hannah has looked after me throughout this time, providing both excellent care and well considered advice. I cannot recommend her highly enough, as a skilled professional and a warm and friendly person, who genuinely cares about making her clients both look and feel their best. Everyone in the salon is friendly and welcoming, making it a pleasurable, relaxing retreat for a little self-indulgent time.”

“I can’t speak highly enough of this hairdresser. Charlie Miller is the best and I have been coming here for years. Lynsey is particularly brilliant and is great at understanding my needs and always makes my hair feel and look amazing! I’ve had cut, colour and hair up done here, and I always leave very happy. I can’t recommend them enough. It is a lovely luxury experience coming to Charlie Miller to get my hair done and I will keep coming back. All the staff are super friendly, and I always feel looked after here.”
