Saks Awards 2021 Winners


Reading Time: 4 minutes

One of our best bits! After the time when we had to rewrite organising salon life – open-close-repeat-repeat – looking after our customers around lockdowns and keeping upbeat and in touch with each other during them, we’re *absolutely* overjoyed to get to this!

THE CEREMONY

As the lifting of restrictions was delayed for a bit longer, our digital-savvy Saks HQ team had to adapt The Awards Plan and rocked another Saks Awards social-style in a virtual ceremony via Facebook for our Saks faces across the UK. And our teams maximised the virtual vibe with their own mini-soirees. All within current guidelines of course.

Our Saks Awards 2021 winners are…

SPECIAL RECOGNITION
EVERYONE@SAKS

For getting through. For loved ones lost and Saks babies born. For ‘could try harder’ home schooling, have-a-go DIYing and immediately isolating. For walking, running, biking, box-setting and for representing Saks on the socials with at-home hair and beauty tips throughout. For Saks4Eve fundraisers, volunteers and for every time you put someone else first. Amidst heartache, relief and joy… 100% thanks for making sure the beat goes on at Saks.
