Fight Against Plastic Pollution

refill revolution, gatsby & miller hair & beauty salon, amersham, fighting against pollution


Did you know that we’re part of Water UK’s Refill Scheme? This means we have provided an in-salon water fountain for the local people of Amersham to come in and refill their bottle, any time.

The first of its kind in Amersham, the Refill scheme is part of our bid to support the #refillrevolution and help ditch single-use plastic to prevent further plastic pollution.

Today, the effect that the UK’s plastic consumption has on the environment and wildlife is now recognised by many as an urgent problem that needs addressing. According to research, the Refill Scheme says that 64% of people would stop buying bottled water if they could access tap water refills.

So, by coming in and filling up your bottle, you’re also helping to make a difference in the fight against plastic waste. The Refill scheme is completely free, easy and open to everyone, so you can save money and feel good about it too.

As a business, we have an ethical responsibility to be eco-friendly in as many areas as possible. In addition to the Refill Scheme, we have installed eco-friendly lighting as well as Ecohead shower heads on our basins, to reduce our water usage by 65%.

So drop in, get #readytoRefill and help support the fight against plastic pollution with #RefillAmersham and Gatsby & Miller.

Barbering For Women Too

barber cuts for women gatsby miller barbers in amersham buckinghamshire


With barbering on the rise and an increase in the number of women seeking barbers to cut their hair, our in-salon barbering service Modern Grooming, has gone from strength to strength.

Luke Baker, our Master Barber at Modern Grooming, says that at least 15% of his clients are women, who range from 60 down to 11, and this is growing month-on-month. Having a non-gender specific barbers within a salon setting is all part of our efforts for inclusivity and accessibility when it comes to men and women having a hair or beauty treatment with us, providing choice without judgement.

But whilst we offer gender-neutral pricing for our barbering services, (which essentially means we charge men and women the same), this isn’t a notion followed by many other salons, as uncovered in a recent BBC News article. Many women, it seems, are either charged more for the same cut on a man or worse, turned away.

Luke says, in line with trends and personal choice, “Women are coming to me for undercuts, fades, short crops. Why should we charge more for the same haircut, just because they’re a woman?” The fact that men and women alike can come to our salon and enjoy any of our services is what we’ve worked so hard to achieve.

Trained in women’s haircutting, along with one other member of the four-strong barbering team, Luke always likes to give his female clients a choice of sitting in the barbering zone or the salon. “I think that’s important,” he says. And so do we.

Keep it current with these top 5 Autumn hair trends

Keep it current with these top 5 Autumn hair trends

Make way for Autumn and shake up your style as we reveal 5 of the best hair trends you need to know

The centre parting
You read it right. This super-simple and minimalist do is making a serious comeback. Seen on all the catwalks this season and spotted on A-listers Kendall Jenner and Dua Lipa, this stalwart no-fuss style suits any face shape and works just as well on long or short hair. For ultra-sleek locks, try straightening your hair first and adding shine spray, or create a more relaxed look with tousled waves and sea-salt spray.

French plaits, fishtail plaits, cornrows, they are all very much IN this Autumn. Sweep your hair up into a high pony tail and plait the length, do two French braids as pigtails, weave mini plaits around your hairline. Whatever you choose, make them as easy or intricate as you like and get creative by incorporating gemstone, clips and pretty jewelled slides into the plaits.

Red hair
Lucky you if you’re a natural red head, because red is THE hair colour of the season. Inject some oomph with a vibrant auburn or shiny mahogany, get some warmth with spicy gingerbread hues or have some fun with a strawberry red. Whether its an all-over colour or a gradual effect with balayage, our Master Colour experts will work their magic to achieve your perfect colour.

Low ponytail
Perhaps not traditionally known as one of the most alluring of styles, and usually reserved for the low maintenance among us, the low-slung ponytail was a firm favourite on the catwalks this season. According to those in the know and one-time celebrity fans (that’s you, Arianna!) the high ponytail has had its day. From simply tied back to full-on embellished with jewels, chains and accessories, you can get as involved as you like in ensuring you’re turning heads this Autumn.

The headband
Hair accessories are back with a bang. Blingy barrettes, crystal slides and ornate metal shapes all offer a simple yet effective va-va-voom to your hairstyle. This is especially true of the headband, once reserved for school girls, the simple band has had a bit of a revamp with beautifully embellished and ornate designs. Think pearls, beads, spikes, crystal and chainmail. If going large isn’t your thing, a delicately decorated or pretty and plain headband can be just as effective.

We Are Best Salon Finalists!


We want to say a big thank you to our loyal clients, our outstanding team and the community of Amersham for helping us to achieve a place in the NHF Awards finals for Best Independent Salon.

You have all played an important part in helping us to be recognised as a salon at the heart of our community. The town of Amersham has been fantastically supportive in the growth of our business and since our re-launch earlier this year, the salon has established itself as a social space where people come to meet, work, relax, eat and drink. We have worked hard to provide services that are inclusive, convenient and accessible to our clients and the wider community. Seeing so many of you return, and so many new faces, is a huge motivator to our team and reaffirms our ethos ’never about us, always about you’.

Salon Director Dawn Montgomery says, ‘we are delighted to have made the finals in the most coveted category of Best Independent Hair Salon. This is the third awards final we have been shortlisted for this year, but it wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support of our clients and community. Whilst our focus is on providing convenience and excellence to clients, it is also important to us that we give something back to the community in which we thrive. We sponsor the local rugby team, Amersham and Chiltern Rugby Club, and hold social events at the salon to help raise money for the Hospice of St Francis, providing a great chance for clients and community members to come together and socialise. A lot of what we provide in the salon, in terms of services and hospitality, has been developed around the needs of our clients and community members. We’re immensely proud of that.’

We’ve Made The Cut!


Exciting news just in: Gatsby & Miller have been selected as finalists in not one, but two categories for the British Hairdressing Business Awards.

The first, and most prestigious of these categories, is for Salon of the Year, where we have been hand-picked by a panel of expert judges from a national selection, along with just five other salons. The second category in which we have excelled is for Best Salon Design, a nod to the innovative concept of our newly launched salon.

This is the third occasion this year that we have made a national award final, and it is most definitely a case of team work.

Salon Director Dawn said, ’This is a very proud moment for the team, I’m thrilled for them. Since re-launching, we have focused on being a salon that goes beyond the latest trend, cut or colour. We’ve fused our hospitality and service offering to give our clients the best possible experience, providing beauty, barbering, a licensed café and technology in a space that allows you to work or play. To have made these very significant national finals is testament to our passion and hard work.’

The awards presentation will take place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge on Monday, 9 September.
