It is a great honour for him to be recognised in this way and to be placed in such a distinguished rank of past winners from across the world. We are all truly grateful and appreciative.”

A multi award-winning stylist, hairdressing luminary Charlie was the first Scottish hairdresser to be honoured with an OBE for services to hairdressing which he received in 2012 from Her Majesty The Queen. And, with a string of industry accolades to its name, the company holds, amongst others, a total of 14 British Hairdressing Awards. 

Having received Scottish Hairdresser of the Year three times Charlie became an inaugural member in the British Hairdressing Hall of Fame, he also won Avant-Garde Hairdresser of the Year and was twice nominated for the prestigious British Hairdresser of the Year.

As well as receiving the National Hairdressers Federation ‘Hairdresser of the Year’, World Master of the Craft, New York and a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Guild of Hairdressers, he has also received the honour of Fellow of Distinction and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Fellowship for British Hairdressing.

Next year marks the 20th anniversary of Charlie Miller’s AIPP Grand Trophy Award, honouring him as the best hairdresser of the year.
