    Charlie Miller: My Client and MeCharlie Miller Blow Dry Charlie Miller Hair styling

    Building a relationship with our clients is just as important as learning the skills it takes to become a hairdresser. After all, a good stylist can last a lifetime for a client and at Charlie Miller, we strive to make sure our stylists do exactly that.

    Two salon stylists, Joanna Drummond and Casey Thomson, have been with Charlie Miller for just over 5 years. During their time here, they’ve built strong relationships with every one of their clients, helping them to achieve a look which is right for them.

    Read on to see what their clients say about them!

    When Joanna met Joanna!

    Joanna Goddard on her stylist, Joanna:

    “I discovered Joanna when she was looking for support during training and needed models to train. I’ve been a client ever since! 

    Joanna is caring and is dedicated to giving me the perfect look. Her sense of style enables her to create haircuts that suit the person no matter their age! Having my hair done at Charlie Miller is so relaxing and I always leave feeling re-energised.”

    Joanna says:

    “I first styled Joanna’s hair when I started my training at Charlie Miller. I’ve actually known her since I was a little girl and always look forward to a catch up in the salon when she comes in.

    We’ve been on a journey with Joanna’s hair and have been maintaining a one-length bob for about a year. We have also been going gradually lighter with her colour! I especially love styling Joanna’s hair for all the black-tie do’s she attends!”

     

     

    Casey Thomson styling her client at Charlie MillerWhen Millie met Casey!

    Millie Darling on her stylist, Casey Thomson:

    “I’ve been a client in the salon for the past 6 years and first booked an appointment with Casey in October last year.
    My appointments are very relaxing, and I love chatting with the staff in the salon.

    Casey is talented, funny, gorgeous and very passionate about her work.”

    Casey says:

    “Millie is a student and became my client when another stylist left. I started to style and blow-dry her hair for a few parties. She sports a classic style and always looks stylish.

    Millie is so lovely and kind. We have great chats every time she comes in.”

     

    Cut and colour appointments can be made with Joanna at Frederick Street salon and South St Andrew Street with Casey. They look forward to welcoming you to the salon soon!

  2. My Client and Me: Linda and Hannah

    Leave a Comment

    As Linda and Hannah celebrate a decade of a successful client and stylist partnership. They reflect on why their relationship works and what they love about one another!

    Linda says:

    “I discovered Hannah when she took over from my previous colour stylist at Charlie Miller. Although Hannah has been colouring my hair for the last 9 years, I have my hair styled and cut by India.  

    I’ve been a client at Charlie Miller for about 20 years.  In 1998 I moved from the south of England (where I had been to Molton Brown and Michael John in London,) to Cumbria and until 2010 used to come up from the Lake District every 6 weeks to Charlie Miller for cut and colour.  From 2010 I’ve lived in Edinburgh and Peebles which makes visits much easier!

    Hannah’s attention to detail is superb yet she’s always keen to exchange news about what’s happening in her life and mine. Hannah is warm, friendly and very professional. My favourite thing about having my hair done is enjoying the friendly atmosphere and knowing I will leave the salon looking better than when I arrived!”

    Hannah on styling Linda’s Hair:

    “I feel I have a lovely relationship with Linda and look forward to her visits. She is stylish, glamorous and elegant. I always love hearing what she has been up to! I have been styling Linda’s hair for 10 years and while we have kept the colour of her hair similar, we’ve changed up the style!”

    Appointments with Hannah can be booked online or by calling our Frederick Street salon. We look forward to welcoming you to the salon soon.

    Lynsey has been Iain’s go-to-stylist at our Frederick Street salon for over 5 years now! Read below their secret to a successful client/stylist relationship.

    Meet Iain and Lynsey

    Iain about Lynsey:

    ‘I discovered Lynsey by chance by booking into Fredrick Street about five years ago and she gave me such a good cut that she’s been cutting my hair since. My favourite thing about having my hair done at Charlie Miller is knowing that I’ll have a great experience:  great welcome, nice people and a great haircut by the time I leave.

    Lynsey has a fantastic, warm personality, is great at her job and we always have a laugh when I’m in. She is professional, bubbly and smart.’

    Lynsey says:

    ‘Iain is successful, witty and generous and the owner of Arbikie, the company that supplies our gin to the salon. He is super successful in his field and so down to earth. I enjoy his visit every 5 weeks as we have a good giggle and cover a lot of topics one being his gin – which I love!’

    Lynsey on being Iain’s Stylist :‘I first cut Iain’s hair about 5 years ago. We have since built up a mutual understanding of each other’s sense of humour and the time has flown by. Iain’s cut had changed over the years from a classic gent to more short and tailored. Sometimes his parting will change but that’s not normally his choice, it occurs with too much blethering.’

    Appointments with Lynsey can be booked online or by calling our Frederick Street salon. We look forward to welcoming you to the salon soon.

    Charlie Miller Haircare was launched at the end of 2018. A year in the making, this fabulous range embodies the luxury feel of the Charlie Miller experience.

    Charlie Miller Haircare sulphate free and paraben free shampoos and conditioners

    Sulphate and paraben-free the shampoos are specifically formulated with Jasmine Extract, Organic Calendula Flower Extract and Organic Sage Oil to help lock in moisture, soothe a dry and flaking scalp and encourage new hair growth, whilst promoting healthy hair.

    Launching with 3 shampoos and 2 conditioners (Volume Shampoo and Conditioner, Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner and Silver Shampoo) the range also reveals a refreshing floral fragrance with clean top notes of green tea, orange and lemon combined with soft jasmine, rose and lily, gentle herbs, musk and oakmoss.

    The journey is a dream come true for Joint Managing Directors and brothers, Jason and Joshua Miller and Jason’s wife and Director, India Miller. “We are truly excited to be launching our haircare range. Having worked in the industry and in haircare for more than 35 years we knew what we wanted to create. We are absolutely delighted with the integrity and results of these products. Watch this space; there’s more to come!”

    Jasmine Extract:

    • Jasmine oil contains moisturising properties to prevent hair breakage and can lock in moisture, hydrate dry hair, and tame frizz.
    • The oil is light and able to penetrate the hair shaft and cuticle to deeply conditions. It also maintains your natural moisture and elasticity.
    • A natural antiseptic, it purifies the scalp of bacteria and build-up.
    • The natural healing properties found in jasmine oil work to eliminate and reduce the possibility of infections and scalp conditions such as dandruff. Additionally, it can soothe your scalp.

    Organic Calendula Flower Extract:

    • Is an anti-inflammatory and antiviral type of plant, of which the most commonly known plant is the marigold.
    • The oil can soothe the scalp and reduce the appearance of dandruff.
    • Regular application of calendula extract hydrates the scalp and soothes dry, flaky skin.
    • Calendula oil regenerates the follicles in your hair, increasing hair growth and providing a luscious head of hair.

    Organic Sage Oil:

    • The name Sage comes from the Latin word ‘salvare’ meaning to save or heal.
    • It is rich in Calcium and Vitamin A, Vitamin C and B-Vitamins. It protects your skin against the assault of free radicals and aids in daily cell regeneration.
    • Sage contains beta-sitosterol, a 5-alpha reductase compound, found to be effective in treating male pattern baldness.
    • It is particularly effective in encouraging new hair growth and can also help reduce dandruff and prevent clogged hair follicles too.

    Our fabulous Charlie Miller stylists graduate in style and celebrate their hard work and achievements!

     

    Charlie Miller staff from across the salons were invited to an evening of recognition to celebrate and applaud team members who had graduated from trainee to stylist.

    A company first, the inaugural graduation ceremony was held at the King Khalid Auditorium in Edinburgh’s Surgeon’s Hall where all 5 salons came together along with invited guests to share in individual successes.

    Proud family members and salon teams added to the atmosphere in the room as each Graduate Stylist was met with a huge round of cheer and applause when called upon to collect their certificate from their salon manager!

    Before achieving Graduate Stylist status, trainees must complete and pass the highly-regarded 3-year Charlie Miller Training Programme in cutting and styling, colour and customer service. We believe this is something worth celebrating!

    Our graduation evening had an amazing family feel with an exciting buzz” commented, Jason Miller, Joint Managing Director. “It was lovely to see how people have grown and developed in their craft and as individuals.  The graduation night provided a real sense of achievement for those stylists involved and we hope this will inspire others to have belief in what they can achieve. Hopefully we have created a further hunger for development and learning. There is excitement now and for others in the future”.

    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.

  12. Shining a spotlight on our Apprentices for #ScotAppWeek17

    Leave a Comment

    Scottish Apprenticeship Week ends today 10th March 2017 and we want to shine the spotlight on our wonderful trainees as we highlight some of their reasons for choosing their apprenticeship journey. We asked a few of them what 3 words best describe the experience of being a Trainee Stylist and why someone should choose hairdressing as a career and here’s what they said:

    In business for over 50 years literally hundreds of young apprentices have started their careers with us, sharpening their scissors and mastering their craft en route to a rewarding career. There are many attractive benefits a hairdressing career can bring: expert training in the craft and in personal growth; ongoing developments to keep a young person inspired and ahead of the game, competing in awards, climbing the ladder to manage a salon or join the Creative Team, plus a consistent and competitive salary.

    Variety is guaranteed as each client has their own story and every day a hairdresser has the opportunity to make their client feel and look fabulous. From welcoming clients to the salon for their ‘first day at school’ haircut to the potential of travelling the world for fashion shoots or catwalk and professional hair shows. Relationships are at the heart of everything we do and investing in the professional and personal growth our young apprentices is a commitment we take very seriously. Alongside the company’s regular in-depth salon expert training programme in cutting and colouring techniques, advances and new products, the  trainees are also enlisted on SVQ Hairdressing Levels 2 & 3 which is managed by ACT (Ambition Centre for Training) and offers accredited and structured theoretical education.

    Throughout the year trainees growth and achievements are recognised and our Trainee Competitions are an opportunity for them to show off their creativity and skills and wow our judges to win cool prizes. In addition, our individual salon Trainee of the Year Awards are run annually and are presented at our Achievement Awards night.

  14. Going Lala over Cinematic Style

    Leave a Comment

    Fashionistas and lovers of classic style will be in their element this January as the cinema spotlight shines on old Hollywood glamour. From La La Land – a visual feast of vibrant colour, romance and ultra shiny locks (and 14 Oscar nominations) – to style icon Jackie O and a bygone era of demure Chanel suits, pillar-box hats and stunning structured hair, they are a journey into bygone eras.

    jackie-kennedy3Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ legendary black bob is as infamous as her husband and her beautiful designer wardrobe. The bouffant 60’s style was admired and replicated by women around the world. Will it make a comeback in 2017?

    EMMA-STONEActress Emily Stone sports a tousled long bob ( a ‘lob’) in her role as Mia in La La Land. An autumnal shade of glossy red compliments her fair complexion and creates a striking look.

    Sleek 40s updo’s, tousled waves and gorgeous hair accessories (a key trend for 2017) all feature in this movie and we won’t be surprised if the clothes, and hair, transfer from the big screen to real life in the months ahead.

    Rumour has it that Emma Stone, whose natural locks are blonde, dyed her hair a vibrant red after a director suggested it would give her an ‘edge’. True or false we’ll never know but if you’re considering a change of style, or colour, our talented team of skilled colourists and stylists are here to listen to your needs, offer advice and ensure you leave the salon confident and happy with your new look.

    Pop in to any Charlie Miller salon for a free consultation. You’ll find our price list here and if you book between the 1st and 28th of February you’ll receive 40% off colour and enjoy the benefits of shiny, healthy hair with SMARTBOND.

  16. Access All Areas – MTV Europe Music Awards

    Leave a Comment

    This month’s Throw Back Thursday flashes back  to the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards. For once Jason, India and their team of stylists (Cat Nicholson, Tammy Waugh, Amber Lennie, Lynsey Wilson, Natalie Cole and Stephen Suckling) didn’t require passports to travel to look after the artists and presenters as the prestigious awards ceremony was held here in Scotland, in the city of Glasgow.

    The-team-backstage-2 The-team-backstage-3

    The-Hydro2 Helping celebrities get ready for their close up is all in a day’s work for the Charlie Miller team and 2014 marked the twelfth consecutive year of being appointed official hair stylists at the MTV Europe Music Awards. While the glitz, glamour and excitement reached a crescendo in the auditorium, our team were busy backstage, working their magic on hundreds of stars, presenters and performers and adding last minute finishing touches before they stepped into the spotlight. With everyone from A-list artists to troupes of backing dancers to look after against a ticking clock, the pace and turnaround is relentlessly fast, especially during the show.

    There’s no denying that looking after musicians and movie stars can be an exciting experience but we have just as much fun, at a more leisurely pace, in the salon looking after our clients. Music and fashions may change over the years but a good haircut never goes out of style.
    Book your appointment today using our online app and we look forward to catching up with your news during your next visit to the salon.
