Awards for Saks Exeter!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

OK, so this couldn’t happen to a better salon! We’re #proud that our Saks hair salon in Exeter bagged coveted ‘Business Salon of the Year’ recently in the prestigious Salon Business Awards 2016.

Salon owners Ellie and Tom Wilson opened Saks Exeter in February 2012 and both agree that the time’s gone in the blink of an eye. Our dynamic duo has loved every minute of their whirlwind Saks journey, making their place at Princesshay the go-to salon for wow-factor hair in Exeter… with a warm Saks welcome every time!

This year’s swanky Salon Business Awards took place at the Madison Rooftop Bar at St Paul’s in June 2016. After hours of deliberation the judges decided on deserving winners across 12 categories… and Saks Exeter was quite rightly on the hot list.

We asked Ellie and Tom to sum up their Saks journey so far…

Ellie says: “Winning Business Salon of the Year is just fabulous! What makes being part of Saks special for us? I don’t know where to start! Support from our Business Development Manager Paul Smith, wow-factor marketing materials and top-notch training are all a given – everything we need to make our salon a success is right at our fingertips.”

Great to celebrate with Business Development Manager, Paul

Tom continues: “Two other things set Saks apart – the connection our brand makes with our customers and the real sense of being part of the Saks family. In our two year national charity partnership Saks UK is raising £100,000 for women’s cancers with The Eve Appeal. We’re thrilled that our Saks Exeter team and customers have contributed £1,704 so far. Our senior stylist Charlotte Tutchings even chose to skydive 15,000 feet on her 21st birthday for our cause! Also have to mention the fantastic community of salon-owners and that the Saks UK team is always there for guidance and to introduce us to the next thing – just how we like it.”
