Signature Colour

Like no other

At Saks, hair colour is in our DNA. And our expertise and partnership with L’Oréal Professionnel is a win-win formula – we get to work with the best. From semi-permanent tone-on-tone for shine and depth to long-lasting permanent colours for radiance, and ammonia-free options. We’ve got L’Oréal Colour Specialists in our salons too – the colour-obsessed who undertake the full colour degree. Takes. Some. Doing. And *so* worth it!


From those wanting colour to pop on Instagram and TikTok feeds, to all our naturalistas who’re concerned about what’s on the ingredients list, and if you’re on a deadline, we’ve so got you covered too.


That’s why consultation is key. We’ll take time to understand your desired colour, talk hair goals and go through the choices and techniques that’ll add the wow-factor to your look.

Saks Artist and colour guru, Sarah Clarke-Lees says: “Saks customers expect a sophisticated colour experience every time – quite right too. We created Signature Colours in response to this desire; six brilliant techniques to max your colour appointments. Your Saks stylist has an array of palettes and hues at their fingertips – and so much colour knowledge – enjoy.”


Where we pull out all the stops with our root melt toner; merging highlights with your natural colour to achieve soft gold tones and an effortless, natural ‘grow-it-out’ look. Super-cute if you love a halo of face-framing colour.

Our Nurture Natural toner is quick to apply and easy-peasy to tag to your usual colour appointment.

Goes the distance – lasting around 8 weeks and you can refresh as you fancy, as you go.


If you’re a classic colour-lover wanting to avoid density – that’s where colour can build up over time – then we have just the thing. By adding fine, lighter pieces in to compliment your usual colour, we’ll create multi-faceted depth and texture with incredible shine. Most excellent if you’re adding in layers or disguising the grey.

Literally blends seamlessly into your usual colour appointment; we’ll top up the tone so you don’t go too bright – and stay in synergy with your colour.

Add in more as desired… change with the seasons, perhaps?


For the creative fashionistas if your hair is ‘your canvas’ kinda vibe. We’ll add lighter panels or work with existing panels; lightening them and then playing with high speed toners for a ‘coming in strong’ intense colour finish…. from rose gold to silver, violet and more. Get creative at your tips or around your face. From daring to dusky… there’s a bespoke hue for you.

Perfect if you’ve already got a colour with lighter pieces. Semi-permanent, fades out and you can change it up for all your occasions.

Lasts around 6-8 washes and can be refreshed as often as you like or fade out and go again.


Want to grow out your highlights but not a fan of the roots-look? Then this is you. Our personalised highlights conversion is a softly-softly approach to achieve as much blondeness as you desire.

We’ll work a fan of face-framing foils to build lightness around your face, whilst also working with your darker colour and tone and texture.

Top up your toner to keep your colour fresh and move the blonde up as desired.


The definition of colour-love right here with brighter, lighter, pieces of joy added throughout the hair. We work this into your usual colour appointment – regrowth or full head tint. Subtle pieces toned in your fave shade, strategically placed from ear-to-ear and eye-to-eye for beautiful definition and texture.

Light reflecting on lighter tones for a natural, sun-kissed finish.

Lighter pieces that last 6-12 months, regrowth appointment is 6-8 weeks.


Ready to introduce colour-play? From subtle to vibrant, we’ll place panels of your desired *low-commitment* hue underneath – behind your ears and parting – for soft hues to shine through but – the clever bit – your colour choice can be bold as you fancy. Dial up or dial down to suit yourself!

A rainbow of choice (sings) peach and pink and steely and silver… lilac and lavender and green. Fabulous for anyone with naturally light or lightened hair who’s looking to change it up.

Lasts around 6-8 washes. Can be refreshed, or simply left to fade out beautifully.
