  1. Welcome Inside Our New Stafford Street Salon

    Leave a Comment

    Our flagship Stafford Street salon has had the ultimate makeover and we can’t wait to show you inside.

    Charlie Miller Stafford Street Salon

    Take the 360-degree tour by clicking here.

    It’s been 18 years since our last Stafford Street salon refit and a change was well overdue, so for that reason we welcomed the help of Scotland’s leading interior designer, Ian Smith Design & Architecture to modernise our Georgian townhouse salon.

    The salon was transformed in just 5 weeks and is now a space of true luxury

    Charlie Miller Satfford Street Salon Large porcelain tiles that, in appearance, resemble natural pale polished concrete, fill the floor and walls. Tall, bespoke mirrors are designed to sit off the walls, and a discreet LED light strip is placed behind the mirror to create a warm halo of light.

    For our clients in a high-tech world, we also provide free Wi-Fi and charging worktops, which are built into every station.

    At the back of the salon, we feature Maletti’s ‘Modern’ wash units designed by Philippe Starck. This provides a new level of luxury and high-end comfort, and they can be adjusted to suit each client’s personal preference.

    So why not visit one of our friendly Stafford Street stylists and relax in true comfort. Better yet, enjoy a complimentary refreshment while having your hair transformed. Choose from a barista-style coffee or tea, a glass of Prosecco or Arbikie Gin with Cushidoos tonic…now that’s our kind of relaxation!

    Here’s what our clients love about our Stafford Street stylists

    “Possibly one of the best haircuts I’ve ever had – very friendly hairdresser who cut and styled my hair exactly how I wanted it! Super happy! Will come back! Would definitely recommend!”

  2. 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

  3. My Client and Me: Rebecca and Elle

    Leave a Comment

    A strong client-stylist relationship is always at the forefront of our goals, besides great hair of course! Stafford Street Salon Manager, Elle Craik and her client, Rebecca Brown are the perfect example of this.

       

    Rebecca says:

    “I discovered Elle more than 10 years ago when there was a salon within Harvey Nichols. From day one she was so friendly and put me at ease. To feel relaxed in her company is just great.

    She is such an artist and every style she does for me is brill. And, as for the hair colour; it’s exceptional!

    Charlie Miller is about relaxation and feeling confident in all its expertise.”

    Stafford Street Salon Manager, Elle Craik

    Elle is the L’Oréal colour specialist within our Stafford Street Salon, which is one of the most comprehensive colouring qualifications in hairdressing. She prides herself on providing customers with styles to complement their daily lives, which is especially true for Rebecca. Here’s what Elle has to say about their relationship:

    “Rebecca is warm, caring, and loveable, and everyone in the salon adores her!

    She likes her colour to look like pale marmalade and is very versatile with her style which she likes to leave to me.

    I’ll often base Rebecca’s look on where she is going as she is often out enjoying life with her husband either at the bowling, the club or the pub quiz.”

    Our Client Promise

    When you first enter our salons, our staff begin building a relationship with you from the outset. It’s important that we understand you as a person so we can get an idea of your style and your daily life. We factor these into the creative process to ensure we create the best look for you!

    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.

    • 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.

  13. #ThrowBackThursday – 1990 Collector’s Portfolio

    CM_19 IMAGE-7 IMAGE-5 IMAGE-1
    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.

  14. Client Stories; Meet Sophie Tulloch and India Miller

    Leave a Comment

    When asked to think about her very first client to feature in our 50 Years Together magazine India Miller immediately thought of Sophie Tulloch and as the photo highlights the smiley duo are very happy in each other’s company. Let us introduce you….

    India-&-Sophie-B&W2Sophie Tulloch
    ‘I used to get my hair cut in London but I had this fringe that was driving me crazy so I walked into Stafford Street and got an appointment with India. She’d just become engaged to Jason and was starting out in her career. I thought she was one of the nicest people I’d met and she completely got what I needed. 

    We’ve tried different hairstyles over the years. I trust her implicitly. She’s professional and friendly and I always feel very welcome. I’ve been to different Charlie Miller salons with her over the years. If India moves…..I follow.’

    India Miller 
    Sophie has been a really easy person to get to know as a client. We immediately clicked from the very first appointment. We have a comfy, flexible relationship. In a way we’ve grown up together. We’ve gone through the birth and parenting of our children together and now there’s an unspoken friendship and care for each other.

    Sophie’s very natural and open, and incredibly honest and caring. She’s very relaxed about her hair. We always have a good giggle whenever she comes in to the salon. How best to describe Sophie? She’s like a lovely hug.’

    Charlie Miller Hairdressing has five luxury salons across Edinburgh. Find us at Frederick Street, South St Andrew Street, Holy Corner, Ocean Terminal and Stafford Street. It’s easy to book online using our app and you can view our price list here. We hope to welcome you 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.

    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.

  18. 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.

    Join us on Instagram, twitter and Facebook for competitions, stories, client photos, back stage exclusives and the latest styles from our five Edinburgh salons. #cmhairdressing #50YrsTogether
