Training at Holy Corner
Holy Corner doubles as a training academy, which is located on the first floor. It’s used across all Charlie Miller salons for the creative education and technical development of all staff. It’s also regularly used by L’Oréal Professional and other training providers to deliver a variety of hairdressing training courses for other stylists from throughout the UK.
Meet our Holy Corner Salon Director
During our 50th anniversary, we spoke to Amber Swift, Salon Director at Holy Corner. She looks back on her first day at Charlie Miller with her first ever client, who she still styles to this day!
“Arabella was the first client I looked after on my first day working at Charlie Miller. Then she became my first regular client. Every time she travelled up from London she would come in for a blow dry. She then moved to Edinburgh and now I regularly cut and colour her hair. She always makes me laugh. Her wedding day was the first time I’d been to someone’s house to do their hair. It was lots of fun to be part of the build-up. Arabella’s a real inspiration and always such a breath of fresh air. I truly look forward to her walking through the door.”
“The first time I went to the salon I was so well looked after by Amber and everyone, I’ve never gone anywhere else. Charlie Miller’s a great place. I love it. This time some 17 years ago, Amber was doing my hair for my wedding. She had to persuade me to get into my wedding dress because I wasn’t sure about it. Now she cuts my kids’ hair too. She’s creative consistent and reliable. I totally trust her. She’s an amazing, great girl. Our relationship has strengthened. She’s become my friend.”
