Our moto

We believe great hairdressing has the power to transform. It’s about you, your hair and so much more.

Our stylists carry out a full consultation before styling. We ensure that we’ve fully discussed what you’re looking for and what style will work best for your needs. Tailoring the style around you is what we do best.


During our 50-year anniversary, we spoke to Ocean Terminal’s Salon Manager, Tammy Neillings. Tammy spoke about what inspires her to create the perfect hairstyle. Here’s what she said:

Tammy Neillings
Outstanding Hairdresser of the Year 2014 -15

“I’m passionate about music, all kinds of genres from rockabilly through punk to ska and reggae. Everything works better for me when it’s set to a soundtrack. I studied fashion promotion at university before I got into hairdressing. It’s the relationship between fashion and music that filters down into how I see things and work. When I’m listening to music it’s the style that runs alongside the sound that inspires me and creates a look in my mind. Fashion allows me to see the music.

Over the years I’ve been most inspired by the relationship between ska and reggae because the styles are so opposing. When I go to hear a band, seeing the fans whose look is synonymous with a specific type of music is usually inspirational. I don’t fall into any one sub-culture, so I don’t assume my clients will either.

A look can be distilled into something more mainstream.”

What do clients love about Charlie Miller Ocean Terminal?

“Brilliant! My wife has been going here on and off for years and has been looked after by a brilliant and utterly charming stylist called Neil.”

  • Styled by Neil Purves (reviewed on Google)

“I had a few hairdressing disasters and need a good haircut. I have long curly frizzy hair and Claire cut me a long layered medium bob. She also thinned my hair. It’s the best cut I’ve ever had.”

  • Styled by Claire Ross (reviewed on Treatwell)

“Brilliant blow dry! The lady that did it dried my hair perfectly and listened to the finish I was looking for. It lasted really well too and I will definitely be back!”

  • Styled by Joanna Kleszcz-Czarnecka (reviewed on Treatwell)
