The Songbook of Judy Garland tour

Reading Time: 3 minutes

2015 is all about being ICONIC at Saks as our gorgeous hair collection paying homage to women we love for their inner elegance and timeless style. So, it was perfect when our Saks Art Team got the call from director and longtime friend of Saks Christopher Manoe to sponsor hair design for The Songbook of Judy Garland,  the show all about one of the most ICONIC women of all time.

The show stars Lorna Luft, Judy Garland’s daughter, together with leading West End musical theatre stars including Louise Dearman (Wicked, Evita), Rachel Stanley (White Christmas, Annie), Darren Bennett (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) and Ray Quinn (X Factor, Dancing On Ice) with choreography by the one and only Arlene Philips.

Louise Dearman and Ray Quinn… hair by Saks

Saks Art Team hair activities include creating looks for promotional photo shoots, gala evening and filming of the show.

Our Saks Hair York salon manager Holly Ward jumped at the chance of working Hollywood glamour and arranged for all the cast members to pop in to our salon at 9A Davygate for trims and colour refreshes whist the show was in town.

We’re raising funds for gynae cancers and Rachel Stanley took time to support #Saks4Eve!

The cast loved their new hair looks by Saks so much that Holly and our team were also invited backstage at the Grand Opera House York performances to recreate our Art Team’s hair looks.

Lorna Luft with Saks Stylist

Legendary Lorna Luft is now a big friend of Saks (and good mates with our Stephanie!)

Alison Dace, our Creative Director and head of Art Team says: “It’s a pleasure to work with the Judy cast; a mega-talented bunch and we are loving giving our salon teams the opportunity to also get involved. For hair design our theme is ICONIC retro glam, helped with an array of our fave L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art products of course!”

The tour that kicked off at Edinburgh Playhouse on 8th May is set to be a success with aficianados reveling in top-notch Judy nostalgia.

Saks stylists in our salons across the UK are trained by the Saks Art Team in delivering ICONIC looks for our customers and we’re LOVING showing the Judy cast exactly what makes Saks special too!
