Work, train or own a salon with Saks

Plenty of ways to ‘be Saks’. Start out as an apprentice, earn your stripes and forge a brilliant career in one of our teams on high streets and in health clubs all over the place. Come straight in and own a salon in a location of your choice or takeover an existing one if you enquire at the right time. You can even convert your own salon to Saks if you’re tired of going it alone.


Being part of a Saks team means lots of things. We have stellar opportunities for those who love entering awards and you could even get backstage assisting Saks Artists with hair and makeup at shoots and shows, if that’s your thing.

Wellbeing and work-life balance is paramount, and our salon owners are geared up to give you the best balance. If you’re returning to work after a career break, we’ve got open arms. From hair or beauty industry career goals to fitting it all in around the kids – we have incredible training, good basic salaries, commission and flexible working patterns (part-time, job-share and condensed hours).
