Saks Art Team everywhere!
Good job Saks Art Team has gone bigger and better for 2016 as our creatives have been SO busy flying the flag for Saks at shoots, shows and sharing our hair philosophies everywhere! Here’s a round up of some of the fab hair stuff they’ve been getting up to…
LUKE AT GRADUATE FASHION WEEK
Luke was honoured to be asked by our mates at L’Oréal Professionnel to head up the Portfolio hair team at Graduate Fashion Week 2016.
He has a soft spot for #GFW, loving that upcoming designers from universities across the UK get to showcase their fabulous clothing designs…. with great hair by Saks!
SARAH CLARKE-LEES JOINED SAKS ART TEAM
We’ve welcomed Sarah Clarke Lees of Saks Lytham as the SEVENTH member of Saks Art Team! Sarah’s super-creative with hair and is passionate about delivering top-notch training… making her a perfect addition to our team.
First mission on behalf of Saks UK was to head to L’Oréal HQ to test their exciting new Smartbond hair strengthening system… with amazing results, as shown here! Smartbond gets a BIG YES from Saks… and is now available in our salons across the UK.
LUKE MADE CREATIVE HEAD MOST WANTED FINAL
We’re beyond thrilled that Luke was acknowledged as a true hairdressing hero by our fave hair bible, Creative Head by making it to the Creative Talent final of the prestigious Most Wanted Awards!
SHAUN, PAUL AND JAMES… THREE TRIPS TO ITALY
Our friends in Italy can’t get enough of Saks Art Team teaching what makes Saks (and British hairdressing) special.
Paul Calladine (Saks Doncaster) and James Maher (Saks Kenilworth) and Shaun Stringfellow (Saks Teesside) all jetted out to deliver interactive training seminars to packed-out seminars of Italian hair professionals who love what we do! Take a mo to read our Q&A with Shaun and find out what makes him tick here.
Everyone loves hair-magic by Luke! He’s been busy styling editorial shoots all year and tending to the tresses of celebs such as celeb stylist Roxie Nafousi and Made In Chelsea’s Rosie Fortesque…
and Strictly 2015’S winner Georgia May Foote to name a few.
URBAN VOICES COLLECTIVE STYLED BY ZOE AND NATASHA
Zoe and Natasha have both spent time assisting backstage at shoots and shows and, getting the brief from Luke, they downed hair tools and headed to the bright lights.
Saks UK has a fabulous friendship with UV Collective having first styled them for their 2013 BAFTAs performance with Paloma and most recently The Clothes Show 2015 and commemorative 10th Anniversary videos here and here. We knew UV Collective would be in the best hands with these two.
LUKE HOOKED UP WITH THE CLOTHES SHOW AGAIN
Everyone knows that Saks loves The Clothes Show! We’ve got super-strong links with these guys having rocked backstage hair AND makeup at Fashion Theatre for two years running… and added the wow-factor with the Saks Pamper Lounge.
So, when team Clothes Show wanted hair creativity to interpret the looks for 2016’S exciting campaign they came to us!
SARAH AND ZOE FOR LOOK X GLAMOROUS
Sarah got straight to work in July when we got the call from Look magazine for a team to head over to the flagship Glamorous store at Trafford Centre, Manchester. Sarah, along with Zoe Chamberlain wowed customers with braiding, plaiting, knotting and more.
Lots more going on already… watch this space for the latest from the Saks Art Team including Luke, Clare, Katy and Sarah shooting the 2017 Saks brand campaign – it’s special. xx
