Oh what a day. And night. It was incredible for our hair team in Redcar to finally get together with loads of our fellow Saks salons up and down the country, along with Saks HQ and Saks Artists for the 2022 Saks Gathering and Awards Ceremony.


Date… 12 June 2022. Setting… Wyboston Lakes. Vibe… channelling our own festival pre- Glasto 5-0. Live music on the main stage, stalls, games, butterflies on stilts, mirrored men, street food, games, dancing and singing in a field. Then a big awards ceremony and after-party.

Dress code? Festival-glam. Coupled with much hugging, laughter and happy tears at actually seeing each other. With sunnies, glitter on our faces and in our hair, in Docs, flatforms and trainers… day to night bliss right?

Festival vibes


As twilight set in, we all headed into the awards ceremony. And to our delight our amazing stylist, Kisha, won the Colour Image Award. We’re really proud of all the fantastic colour work we do in the salon. It’s something our customers love and keep booking back in for.

Kisha says “I really love doing colour work and to win an award for it is amazing!

“I was so overwhelmed to win, it’s really rewarding after seeing all the awards over the years since I started my apprenticeship with Saks. Especially when I’m being congratulated from everyone from around the town who have seen it on our social media channels”.

And for part three we danced into the early hours with all the tunes provided by Ministry of Sound DJ *and old school friend of Saks* Nilesh Parmar. From dance classic *I know I can count on you* to all-time faves.


Our MD Stephen Kee says: “Our awards recognise our superstars from our salons up and down the country and reward them for their hard work. There are no flukes here. It’s all measured by dedication to work, consistently, day in day out. I really want to congratulate all finalists and especially our winners. You’re doing amazing work and you deserve recognition.

“It was great seeing everyone together after not being able to get together for so long. Everyone had a fantastic time. Very proud of everyone at Saks and where we are in 2022.”
