Reading Time: 2 minutes

Lockdown didn’t stop Our Three smashing it as finalists in the Salon Business Awards 2021… and representing in five different categories! Back to hair, beauty and doing the business indeed – join us in sending huge congrats out to these Saks Faces…

Saks Exeter

Saks Exeter is a four-times SBA winner already, and owner Tom Wilson says: ‘We’ve made lots of changes behind the scenes to reduce our carbon footprint. From installing all new lighting to rethinking recycling strategies and emailing booking confirmations, appointment reminders and receipts, we’ve utilised the lockdowns to challenge our previous behaviour so it’s good to be shortlisted as a Green Salon. And, to be a finalist in the Business and Digital Salon categories too is just the icing on the cake.”

Saks Hexham

Andrea Currah, owner of Saks Hexham: ‘A big shout for stylist Shannon who worked on the entry during lockdown. Over the moon after such a tough year – this news is creating a buzz straight after reopening!”

Shannon says: “This category’s about how we train our juniors, ongoing training for stylists and all the other ways we keep our skills sharp to stay on top. We’re so proud to put our salon on the map with others from all over the country.”

Saks West Bridgford

Michelle Shergill, owner of Saks West Bridgford: ‘When customers come in they experience the best service  – it’s the ethos of the salon and the Saks brand. I lead my team to shine in their own right and together we deliver the best for our customers. Very proud. And can’t wait to party with Saks Exeter and Hexham again.”

Scenes from previous SBAwards

Next up, the judges will be studying all the entries in the final round, and Salon Business will be revealing the winners at the  Salon Business Awards In-Person Grand Final… pass us the tickets!

Janet King, Head of Saks Marketing, concludes ‘Brilliant news. It’s great to see Saks salons making time to contribute to our industry in this way. Massive congrats to our other friends in the industry for getting through – we’ll see you there.”
