LAURA WINS STYLIST ACHIEVEMENT
Oh what a day. And night. It was incredible for our hair team in Exeter 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?

LAURA’S WINNING MOMENT
As twilight set in, we all headed into the awards ceremony. And to our delight our amazing Salon Manager, Salon Director & Colour Specialist Laura was presented with the Stylist Achievement Award. We couldn’t be prouder of her achievement and to be recognised at a national level is fantastic.
Laura receiving her award
Salon owner, Tom says “It’s the most well-deserved achievement for a Laura to win this award two years in a row. She is an exceptional stylist and colourist, and her client care is second to none. We are so proud of Laura and are absolutely thrilled that she has been recognised for her amazing work.”
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.”
