WE’VE WON THREE NATIONAL AWARDS
Oh what a day. And night. It was incredible for our hair and beauty team in West Bridgford to finally get together with loads of our fellow Saks salons up and down the country, along with Saks HQ and Saks Artists for the 2022 Saks Gathering and Awards Ceremony.
Date… 12 June 2022. Setting… Wyboston Lakes. Vibe… channelling our own festival pre- Glasto 5-0. Live music on the main stage, stalls, games, butterflies on stilts, mirrored men, street food, games, dancing and singing in a field. Then a big awards ceremony and after-party.
Arriving in style
Dress code? Festival-glam. Coupled with much hugging, laughter and happy tears at actually seeing each other. With sunnies, glitter on our faces and in our hair, in Docs, flatforms and trainers… day to night bliss right?
Chay living it large
OUR WINNING MOMENTS
As twilight set in, we all headed into the awards ceremony. And to our delight we didn’t just win one award, or two… but three. Just wow! We were bowled over to be recognised for our achievements across the past year. Firstly, our super-talented Leanne won the Therapist Achievement Award, and then the beauty team went on to win Beauty Salon of the Year. And then the entire salon won Hair & Beauty Salon of the Year.
Leanne’s winning moment
Salon owner, Michelle says “I’m so happy and extremely proud of our award achievements. with what’s been a very hard year. Personally, becoming a new mum and running a business straight after covid makes these awards even more special.
Beauty Salon of the Year
“I just want to say to my team that I’m soooo proud of you! Without you, none of this is possible. Massive thank you to you all for trusting my – sometimes – crazy ideas, for your loyalty and for what you do every day in-salon”.

And for part three we danced into the early hours with all the tunes provided by Ministry of Sound DJ *and old school friend of Saks* Nilesh Parmar. From dance classic *I know I can count on you* to all-time faves.
Our MD Stephen Kee says: “Our awards recognise our superstars from our salons up and down the country and reward them for their hard work. There are no flukes here. It’s all measured by dedication to work, consistently, day in day out. I really want to congratulate all finalists and especially our winners. You’re doing amazing work and you deserve recognition.
“It was great seeing everyone together after not being able to get together for so long. Everyone had a fantastic time. Very proud of everyone at Saks and where we are in 2022.”
