The group kick-started things with their first session ‘Styling through the decades’ at Saks Academy Darlington with Sarah Clarke-Lees of Saks Art Team.

Sarah says: “This years A-Team programme has kicked off with a session exploring the trend setters from years gone by to current fashionistas. The team will learn creative cutting, styling, colouring and wig techniques, finishing their year with a photo shoot showcasing their new skills. It’s an exciting chance for them to step out of their comfort zones and take the creative session world back to their salons.”

Previous A-Teams have assisted backstage at London Fashion Week, the Brits, Mobo’s, Graduate Fashion Week and more.
