A big win for Newark hair salon

Reading Time: 2 minutes

We opened in July 2020 and we won our first award in July 2021! Our salon owner Zoe gained Special Recognition for Customer Experience in the Saks Awards 2021. What’s so stand-out, you say? If you’ve been in you’ll know we like to maximise everything for our customers – from meet and greets to hitting the hair chair for beautiful hair and colour to stepping out feeling a whole lot better. With great chat, refreshments, styling tips and good old catch-ups in between. And we got rewarded for doing just that…. before our first birthday. Before you find out about our Zoe, grab a couple of minutes to have a peek at our fabulous feature in the Saks Awards Magazine.

We grabbed five to find out what makes Zoe tick…

Where did your Saks Journey start?
At Saks Lincoln – loved it.

Something unique about you
I’m a mother of three boxer dogs – Ronnie, Reggie and Danny.

Who is your hair icon?
Our Luke. He’s so laid back and the way his mind works is insane. He always nails the look.

(That’s Saks’ creative director Luke Pluckrose, by the way. He and Zoe go way back – as Zoe’s assisted him on loads of backstage styling gigs over the years).

Half an hour of me-time, whaddya do?
What. Even. Is. That.

Best Saks moment so far. 
That’ll be being part of Luke’s backstage hair team for the opening show – Geometric Reflections – at L’Oreal Colour Trophy 2019. And of course winning my awards.

Night in or night out?
Nights in with my fiancée Matt, the boxers and our friends.

Guilty pleasure? 
That’ll be watching singing auditions. Love ’em.

A good read?
The Secret. The law of attraction is a thing.

Why hair?
Is there anything else! Love creating beautiful looks and I love the journey our guests go on. Everyone deserves that amazing feeling when they leave the salon.
