Saks Art Team in Europe

Reading Time: 3 minutes

About Saks Art Team and Kerastase. When we got the call inviting them to take part in their international Kérastase styling educational tour, the answer was of course a resounding HELL YES!

No stranger to travelling the world teaching Saks’ hair philosophies and techniques, Luke Pluckrose (Art Team member and seasoned ambassador for Saks) called on Paul Calladine to join this tour.

Paul’s our super-creative franchisee at Saks Doncaster. No stranger to backstage styling, glitzy events and providing top training, Paul’s also a L’Oréal Colour Trophy winner – an amazing achievement awarded to only a few in the UK hair industry. He’s also been featured in British Vogue and LOVES flying the flag for Saks.

Taking in Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary in a whirlwind week-long tour which included presenting to 100+ hairdressers daily and interactive cutting workshops, Luke and Paul presented the gorgeous looks in our ICONIC hair collection.

The guys also mixed it up with an eclectic array of Saks styles including hair-ups, festival knotting, a retro pin-up and the classic French double pleat.

Paul says: “Everyone knows we’re big on training at Saks Doncaster and we jump at the chance whenever our stylists get the chance to assist our Art Team backstage at events such as Clothes Show Live. Actually being asked to teach on this tour is a great honour for me personally and participation in such an event really puts Saks Doncaster on the map locally too.”

Luke says: “We love getting involved in this type of overseas tour and sharing our ICONIC collection is a blast! We’ve already trained our Saks UK stylists in delivering the looks in the collection and it’s proving to be a big hit with our UK customers. Being given the opportunity to take ICONIC to Europe is the icing on the cake.”
