Claire Denyer wins AGAIN

Reading Time: 3 minutes

All eyes were on Hairdressers Journal’s prestigious British Hairdressing Business Awards at the swanky Lancaster Hotel in London on Monday 12th September. Naturally we were thrilled to bits when our Claire Denyer of Saks Kings Hill was announced as Franchisee of the Year… for the second time.

Claire says: “Unbelievable! Showing that we are a serious business contender is SO important for us. Being part of Saks UK we’re naturally known for our creativity as hairdressers, and as the art of commerce is key to any successful business I am delighted to be formally recognised by industry bible HJ.”

“It’s a very good hair day for Saks Kings Hill as we’ve been selected from all the talent that’s out there in the British hair industry. We’re flying the flag of excellence at our salon and for the Saks UK brand also!”

No stranger to #BHBAs, Claire won this award back in 2013 and has an array of other accolades including…

SAPPHIRE AWARDS: Top Training Provider AND Franchise Salon Owner
SAKS UK AWARDS: Salon of the Year, Customer Award, Marketing Award

Claire joined Saks as a stylist back in 2002 and spent the next few years working hard at advancing her career by taking advantage of the fabulous training opportunities available to Saks franchisees, and also becoming a L’Oréal Colour Degree Specialist.

Of her Saks journey Claire says: “Loving being part of Saks, it was the obvious career progression to own my own salon and I chose Saks Kings Hill. I’m honoured to provide Saks hair and beauty to David Lloyd members and non-members alike. If any challenges come my way, I’m always fully supported by Saks HQ and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I absolutely love being part of such a great network and I can’t imagine ever being anywhere else.”


Claire and the Saks Kings Hill team have been passionate supporters of our national charity partnership, fighting women’s cancers with The Eve Appeal right from the beginning. The day before the BHBAs they were super-busy with their second fabulous SAKS4EVE Sunday event with the team giving their time for free offering hair and beauty appointments for donations… raising over £900 in the process! This brings Saks Kings Hill’s tally to an amazing £3,473… getting us so much nearer to our £100,000 target!
