MEET OUR CREATIVES


Saks’ creative director Luke Pluckrose and Saks Art Team shine a light for Saks creating our beautiful hair and beauty campaigns, styling A-listers and heading up teams for shoots and shows. They also share their industry knowledge so we can achieve gorgeous hair ourselves. And they set the standards at Saks as leading hair educators training our stylists.

 

BOOK A SAKS ARTIST

Agents and concierges can book Luke, Clare or Sarah of Saks Art Team and our collective of Saks Artists for your clients. You may need to hook them up with hot creatives, often at short notice. Luke and our top stylists, colourists and hair teams can be booked to create ’the look’ for the red carpet and exclusive events, weddings, beauty shoots, fashion shows and more. On-the-spot styling or all the hair prep that’s needed, we can be behind the scenes as much as you need. Whatever your clients want; the world over.

Need a recommendation? It’s here. Big love to Kim – booked by Kendall too.

To enquire call 0845 678 0290 or email bookings@saksartists.co.uk.
