Leonie wins Saks Colour Image 2021
TA-DA! This is big… our creative superstar Leonie in our Guisborough hair salon only went and won the *prestigious* Colour Image Award in the Saks Awards 2021. Leonie’s been passionate about forging a creative career in hair and this is the icing on the cake. We took the opportunity to catchup with Our Girl for a quickfire Q&A…
Where did you start your Saks journey?
I started right here at our fab Saks Guisborough salon as a Saturday girl when I was 14 and I’m now a stylist at 22.
Tell us something you love especially about hairdressing?
Getting creative with colour OF COURSE – it’s my absolute favourite service.
Molly Mae I’m obsessed with her fashion and how she styles her hair. Love all the bouncy curls using different type of extensions to create The Look.
We are all a team and the girls are part of my family. And we’re always learning new hair trends as well.
Half of hour me time is…
Spending time with my two little toy poodles – taking them for walks and getting out in the fresh air.
Best Saks moment so far…
Wow. My biggest achievement so far has to be winning this award. Hang on, I have another – loved being part of the Saks A-Team training programme and working alongside Saks’ creative director, Luke Pluckrose. He showed us how to make wigs and to style them – totally creative. I got to learn so much from Luke and to take it back into the salon and show the team what we’d done.
Night in or night out?
I’m a quiet girl at heart. Love to settle on the sofa watching a boxset. Don’t get me wrong – I love going out for meals with friends as well. And I have a party side too but not too often!
A guilty pleasure is…
I love spending my wages as soon as I get paid – especially going clothes shopping – even when I don’t need anything I still manage to find something I like. Has to be done.
I’ve loved hair since I was really young I’ve always been good styling my own hair. Actually I used to have a horse which I use to plait all the time – I found hair really interesting from that point.
