  1. Reducing Our Environmental Footprint: Scrummi Towels

    Leave a Comment

    At Charlie Miller, we strive to do right by our clients, and that includes protecting the environment at the same time. In all 5 salons, we use Scrummi towels – the ultimate sustainable solution to cotton towels.

    How has Scrummi helped reduce our environmental footprint?

    Since 2011 we have made a dramatic difference. Here’s what we’ve achieved so far:

    • We’ve reduced 500 plus tonnes of CO2
    • We’ve saved 8.3 million litres of chemically contaminated water

    What are Scrummi towels?

    Scrummi is a single-use, 100% biodegradable vegan towel that is made from soft and natural wood fibres from sustainable forestry programs. This means it not only protects our environment, but it’s also free of germs and fresh every time!

    How do they differ from cotton towels?

    No matter how hard you wash a cotton towel (and no matter how much energy you use) germs will remain. They’re invisible to the naked eye, but trust us when we say that lots of fungal and bacterial pathogens are waiting, just below the over-washed scratchy surface, ready to be unleashed onto the next client. But not at Charlie Miller! Scrummi towels are 100% germ and scratch-free. We don’t blame you if you never want to go near a cotton towel again…

    How does this help?

    Typical salon towels use literally thousands of kw/h of electricity to wash them after each use. This process equals lots of CO2 which adds to the impact of global warming…but wait, there’s more. An average washing machine load of synthetic towels equals 700,000 micro-plastics and harmful detergents and toxins which have a devastating impact on our oceans.

    Check out the Scrummi timeline:

    Scrummi = Happy Customers + Happy Environment

  5. Introducing Joanna Kleszcz-Czarnecka!

    Leave a Comment

    The lovely Joanna Kleszcz-Czarnecka, our only bilingual hairdresser, is originally from Poland and decided to pursue her dream career after moving to Edinburgh.

    Based at Charlie Miller Ocean Terminal, Joanna joined the team in 2018 and here she describes her journey so far:

    “Hairdressing has always fascinated me. My grandfather was a hairdresser and my mum’s best friend had a hair salon in where I spent a lot of time and observed her creative work. When I met my future husband it turned out that half of his family were hairdressers too and so I decided that this was a sign to take up education in this profession and fulfil my passion.”

    “Fryzjerstwo fascynowało mnie od zawsze. Mój dziadek był fryzjerem, a najlepsza przyjaciółka mojej mamy miała salon fryzjerski, w którym spędzalam dużo czasu i obserwowałam jej pracę. Kiedy poznałam mojego przyszłego męża, okazało się, że połowa jego rodziny pracuje jako fryzjerzy, więc zdecydowałam, że jest to znak do podjęcia nauki w tym zawodzie i spełnienia mojej pasji.”

    “When I graduated from University in Poland almost 15 years ago I decided to come to Edinburgh. After a few years of studying Art I finally gathered the confidence to start my dream of being a hairdresser. I studied hairdressing at Edinburgh College where I gained an HNC in Hairdressing with a Grade A. During my studies I worked in several Edinburgh salons, I also used to return to Poland during the holidays and study private hairdressing courses. I have also worked as a hairdresser in a care home which was very rewarding. I joined Charlie Miller team in Ocean Terminal in April 2018.”

    “Kiedy ukończyłam Uniwersytet w Polsce prawie 15 lat temu postanowiłam przyjechać do Edynburga. Po kilku latach studiowania sztuki w końcu nabrałam pewności siebie, aby spełnić moje marzenie o byciu fryzjerem. Studiowałam fryzjerstwo w Edinburgh College, gdzie zdobyłam HNC w fryzjerstwie z wyroznieniem. Podczas studiów pracowałam w kilku salonach w Edynburgu, w czasie wakacji również wracałam do Polski na prywatne kursy fryzjerskie. Pracowałam takze jako fryzjer w domu opieki, co było bardzo satysfakcjonujące. Dołączyłam do zespołu Charliego Millera w Ocean Terminal w kwietniu 2018 roku.”

    “My greatest passion is cutting and put ups, I love being a hairdresser. I really enjoy working in the salon – each day is different and never boring mainly thanks to the various client who come through the door. Outside of work my favourite things are art, music, films and spending time with my 8 year old son Casper.”

    “Uwielbiam być fryzjerka, moją największą pasją jest strzyzenie i upiecia. Lubię pracować w salonie – każdy dzień jest inny i nigdy nudny, głównie dzięki różnym klientom, którzy nas odwiedzaja. Poza pracą moje hobby to sztuka, muzyka, filmy i spędzanie czasu z moim 8-letnim synem Casperem”.

    • 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.

  7. Graduation 2018

    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”.

  11. Client Stories: Shona Bathgate & Miriam Begg

    Leave a Comment

    CLIENT STORIES

    A little bit of tranquillity in a busy day, client Shona Bathgate describes her regular salon visits. Shona’s relationship with Miriam Begg has been a success so far, but what else bonds the two?

    Shona says, “I discovered the salon as it’s close to my place of work and Miriam has been cutting my hair for a long time now. She is beautifully stylish, fun and friendly and understands what works for me. Over the years she and my colourist Tammy, have saved me from some of my more questionable hair requests. I compete in long distance triathlons so my hair has to be practical and a bit edgy.”

    Miriam says, “Shona became a client at least 10 years ago when another stylist was off sick and that day we chatted about different style options. I convinced her to go short and she’s been short ever since. I’m more likely to do her hair for a triathlon or the Ironman competitions as that takes up a big part of her life but she still likes to look good while doing this. She has a great spirit and loves to experiment with undercuts and different hair colours. As a professional mum of two who works full time she would give anyone in their 20’s or 30’s a run for their money. Shona is very inspiring and in fact she made me believe in myself to run the Edinburgh marathon. Most of our chat is about running and a love of food and wine. She is inspirational, fearless and fashionable!”

    Appointments with Miriam or any of our talented stylists across Charlie Miller’s five Edinburgh salons, can be booked online here.

    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.

  13. Client Stories: Chrissie Heughan & Hayley Wilson

    Leave a Comment

    In 1994 during her student years at Edinburgh College of Art Chrissie Heughan was a hair model at Stafford Street for the trainees of that time. She has been a client ever since and for the past 3 years Chrissie can be found sitting in the chair at the salon in Ocean Terminal being looked after by her stylist Hayley. What is it that professional artist Chrissie (mum to Outlander star Sam Heughan) and stylist Hayley enjoy about each appointment?

    CHRISSIE HEUGHAN

    Being an artist is really a lifestyle yet means there’s not a lot of what one would call “spare time” and although I enjoy sport, cinema and the theatre there’s nothing more relaxing than a head massage at the salon. It’s my favourite think and chill time! I love that they don’t do fuss! Then it’s over to Hayley and the calm, careful and professional journey continues in her chair. She completely understands my hair and all its challenges and it’s always well cut, smooth and manageable.

    HAYLEY WILSON

    I started blow drying Chrissie’s hair about 3 years ago when I was a trainee. She came in often for model blow dries and was always very patient and helpful when it came to discussing her challenging thick hair. Chrissie and I both know how much hair she has and it often seems that no matter how much I cut there’s always more; it’s never ending but Chrissie trusts me fully on all advice I give her on what’s best for her hair type. I’m delighted that after qualifying Chrissie followed me to my new salon Ocean Terminal and now comes to me as a full paying client for both colour and cutting services. I find Chrissie a very funny, friendly and interesting lady.

    Appointments with Hayley, or any of our talented stylists across Charlie Miller’s five luxury Edinburgh salons, can be booked at the click of button with our online app and you can view our price list here. We look forward to welcoming you to the salon soon.

  16. 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.
