Alice Styles at LCT 2023

Reading Time: 3 minutes

We love a good achievement or two. And this time, we’re celebrating our very own Alice, who proudly assisted Saks’ creative director Luke Pluckrose at this year’s L’Oréal Colour Trophy, as he headlined the Grand Final show in July (*yet again*) with a stunning hair collection.

All of the team at our Saks hair salon in Guisborough were so excited as Alice set off for London to work on the show at Battersea Evolution. With several hours’ hair prep the day prior to the show, followed by action-packed back-stage prep on the big day, our Alice immersed her talents in everything she did alongside Luke and Saks Artists Clare Murphy and Sarah Clarke-Lees.

Luke says: “Expect the Unexpected”. We say expect a glamorous showcase of LCT show-worthy looks *like last time*!

They worked together to create a beautiful, glamour-full colour and style showcase of cutting edge, progressive and 100% L’Oréal Colour Trophy show-worthy looks. And we’re sure you’ll agree, the end result was oh-so-impressive – loved by industry professionals from across the UK.

Salon owner, Sarah says “We’re so proud of Alice showcasing her talents at this year’s L’Oréal Colour Trophy. It’s an incredible achievement that allows stylists to let their creativity flow. Particularly as Luke’s looks were the headlining collection.”

Alice continues “I had the best time at the show. We had a busy couple of days working alongside lots of talented stylists from up and down the UK. Our models were amazing – they pulled off our looks and showed them to perfection. I learned a lot from Luke, Sarah and Clare. I love working with hair, it’s my passion and I can’t wait to continue my creative work at more shows when the opportunities arise.”
