    Exploring Creative Talent

    Our artistic team recently set up a ‘think tank’ to nurture young apprentices. This should encourage them to branch out and explore their creativity in avant-garde challenges. Showcasing new ideas, each salon worked as a team to reach a common goal. It was an event to celebrate hard work, creative thought and team energy in an evening of artistic imagination.

    Artistic Director Jason Miller said,
    Education is at the heart of everything we do. We have an ongoing commitment to the development of our young people. This avant-garde night created such a fabulous buzz in  all the salons. The Team and all other staff were very impressed with the standard presented and I congratulate all our young trainees for their achievements.”

  2. #ThrowBackThursday – 1990 Collector’s Portfolio

    Leave a Comment

    In 1990 Charlie Miller elevated hair photography to a work of art with a set of experimental images to celebrate the salon’s 25th Anniversary. This visionary limited edition Collector’s Portfolio featured seven dramatic styles, inspired by qualities such as strength and abundance, and was shot against specially commissioned backdrops featuring ancient runes. Top fashion photographer Nick Price captured the images.

    Charlie’s aim in creating the unique collection was to challenge and extend the boundaries of hair photography. With only 50 sets designed and produced by Colin Marr, the beautifully presented portfolio was launched at a press breakfast in Joe’s Cafe in London, a popular venue for 1990s fashion industry movers and shakers.

  3. Charlie Miller’s Coolest Client – North Pole Adventures for Teenage Cancer Trust

    Leave a Comment

    NORTH-POLE-HAIR-CUT-3This month’s Throw Back Thursday is inspired by the change of season and the definite chill in the air. In 2010 Sir Tom Farmer invited his friend Charlie Miller on his expedition to the North Pole and officially became the company’s coolest client when Charlie cut his hair for the Teenage Cancer Trust.  Interviewed by the BBC about the trip Charlie said ‘”I was cutting Sir Tom’s hair and he asked me if I would go, I looked at him for three seconds and the boy in me appeared and I said ‘yeah’.

    Once at the Pole Charlie kept his gloves on to avoid frostbite. Sir Tom removed his hat to brave the severe conditions and was given a super fast trim in temperatures of minus 35 degrees. The haircut was a world’s first and the adventurous trip raised significant funds for a very worthy cause.

    2010 was also the year that Charlie Miller opened it’s fifth salon at Holy Corner, realising its dream of launching a training academy for industry peers. Led by salon manager Amber Swift, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome when you step inside this winter. Book online today.
