Zoe Wins Key Worker Competition

Reading Time: 3 minutes

All the team at our Saks hair salon in Exeter are thrilled to congratulate key worker competition winner, Zoe, who’s a true inspiration to the nation with her dedication and commitment to humankind during Covid times, lockdowns and everything that’s happened since March 2020.

Zoe – thank you for the crucial role you’ve played (and still do) at the Exeter RD&E , we really appreciate you. So as our way of thanks, we were super excited to run a competition to win a free hair makeover to a lucky winner.


In a nationwide competition, Saks HQ asked followers to nominate someone special they’d want to treat to a free hair makeover at Saks, with our creative director, Luke Pluckrose, and in-salon colour specialist Paula. Someone who went above and beyond during the pandemic. Whether it was an NHS front liner, carer, teacher or deliverer-of-everything, to the nicest of neighbours, family and friends. From vaccine volunteers to random acts of kindness givers-galore.

The prize included a colour, cut and finish for Zoe, as well as a £50 voucher for her fab friend and nominator, Briony, who also visited our salon to receive her prize. Briony – you’re a fab friend for nominating Zoe, and you deserve this prize too. Well done you for your winning entry. Zoe’s one lucky lady to have you.

Salon owner, Tom, says “It was so lovely to meet Zoe, she was such a deserved winner of this competition. We absolutely loved treating her to a new colour from our amazing Colour Specialist Paula and a new look from hair superstar Luke! The only downside was that Zoe was straight back into the operating theatre the next day so the new hair wasn’t on full show for long! We are so grateful for the work Zoe and her colleagues in Exeter and across the Country, do and really hope she enjoyed this treat.”


Global celeb-stylist and a huge hit on Instagram for his collab with top makeup artist Nikki Wolff and more, Luke creates our gorgeous Saks campaigns and sets the high standards for our Saks stylists. Needless to say, he’s very in demand and Zoe hit the big-time when she won the prize.


Our fabulous Artistic Director and Colour Specialist, Paula is no stranger to makeovers galore. An expert in all that she does, Paula’s racked up a ton of talent (around 20 years or so), and she joined our team last year when she moved back to Devon. She’s a L’Oréal Colour Specialist too, so there’s nothing she can’t do when working her magic on Zoe.


All the team at our Exeter salon were so happy to host Zoe for her makeover. We made sure she was treated to a fantastic Saks salon experience, as we do with all our customers.
