CHARLIE Miller managing directors, Jason and Josh Miller, were joined by their parents and business founders, Charlie and Janet Miller, plus beauty salon owner, Lauren McGinty, management and staff to celebrate the opening of the company’s very first hair and beauty venture.
On Monday 28th October, in conjunction with award-winning local independent beauty salon, Wo:mankind Beauty Clinic, clients were welcomed through the doors of the 2,500-sq ft site at Raeburn Place in the Stockbridge locality of Edinburgh.
From origins that began in a gent’s hairdressing salon in 1965, the Charlie Miller brand leads the way consistently with style, quality, and creativity and now boasts a portfolio of five, high-end luxury hair salons throughout Edinburgh, employing more than 100 staff. This latest project is the company’s first salon to include beauty to its list of services.
Said the MDs: “We are delighted to have opened in Stockbridge alongside a host of well-known independent and national businesses and to be part of its wonderful village vibe.
“For over 50 years, our stylists have been cutting, colouring, and styling hair and now, working in partnership with Lauren McGinty at Wo:mankind Beauty Clinic, we have the bonus of being able to offer beauty, nail and make-up services.
“Wo:mankind is a beauty business that is highly regarded in the city and the industry and, like us, it is a family-run business. We love it that Lauren leads with strong values of customer service and client care that resonate fully with our own.”
Wo:mankind Beauty Clinic owner, Lauren McGinty, adds: “From my very first conversation with Josh and Jason Miller, I knew I was about to embark on a dream come true to work with this truly inspiring family-run company.
“As a teen, I worked as a Saturday girl at Charlie Miller and the standards set then were always a bar for me. I knew I wanted to do hair or beauty and to follow in my dad’s entrepreneurial footsteps; so, in 2006, I opened my first salon in Stockbridge going into business with my mum.
“Throughout the 15 years in the salon, there has never been a moment when we have sat still and when the opportunity came about to set up a clinic in Charlie Miller, I knew it was one not to be missed.”
The development of Raeburn Place is led by the Raeburn Place Foundation, a charity set up in 2014 whose aims include widening participation in sport and celebrating the heritage of Raeburn Place.
Said Ron McNab, acting chair, Raeburn Place Foundation: “The Foundation is really pleased to see Charlie Miller open their doors at Raeburn Place Development and we wish them every success. The opening is an exciting addition to the diverse mix of high-quality businesses which the development offers.”
