MEET OUR FACES AT SAKS BARNARD CASTLE
You’ll find a close-knit team of Barnard Castle hairdressers. We immerse ourselves in all-things Saks. Take Jess for instance. Started on a Saturday and now a senior member of the team. Jess says: “I love my job in-salon and Saks also gives me exciting opportunities to assist at shoots and shows – win-win!”
“Saks Barnard Castle is always a pleasure to visit ! The staff are welcoming and professional. The attention to customer needs is 5 star, as is the quality of the cut, colour and finish! I would recommend the Saks Barnard Castle hairdressers to anyone.” Sarah Johnson, Facebook review.
Simon is proud to manage a fabulous team of expert and professional stylists! He doesn’t always play a hands-on role on the salon floor but when he does it’s a first class service every time! Simon says “Saks Barny offers an extensive range of hair services in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Every customer receives a full consultation taking into account what look best suits them. I'm proud to have seen my team progress from apprentices to hairdressing experts with the amazing package that Saks offers”
Andrew joined Saks immediately after leaving school in Richmond 20 years ago and has been with the Barnard Castle salon for the past 16 years. He’s been involved in national competitions including being a regional finalist for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy. Andrew received special recognition for his longstanding service at the Saks Awards 2015…Andrew says: “I enjoy what I do so it was really nice and unexpected to be recognised. As a big company you are not sure everyone sees what you are doing.”
Jess has been at Saks Barnard Castle for six years. Having started as a Saturday girl, Miss Hesp worked her way up from apprentice, passing all NVQ levels and a barbering course, before progressing to become a senior stylist. Jess was selected as one of ten stylists nationwide to be part of Saks UK's A-Team last year. During the year-long programme Miss Hesp has been mentored by Saks Art Team where she learnt new and creative skills such as mood-boarding and how to put together collections. On top of her busy salon schedule you’ll find Jess styling backstage at fab events such as Clothes Show, BRITs, London Fashion Week and more! Jess says “Being part of the A-Team was an amazing experience and since being involved I’ve become a lot more confident trying different styles.”
Sarah joined Saks as an apprentice and received full Saks training before taking a few years out as a a full-time mum. Six years ago Sarah decided to reignite her passion for hairdressing and we’re thrilled to have her back on the salon floor! Simon says: “Sarah is a great all-rounder and loved by many longstanding customers and colleagues.”
Stylist Ellie enjoyed spending time with Saks Art Team earlier in 2016. She was one of 24 selected from 600 apprentices for an interview and one of the chosen few selected to be a part of the Saks Apprenticeships Style Stars team! She had training days with Saks Creative Director, Luke Pluckrose, bringing out her inner creativity and opening doors for her future that money couldn't buy! Well Done Ellie!
Juniour Stylist Lisie is our Level 3 apprentice and has been with us for over 3 years no. Lisie is very creative and we think she is going to go very far in her career with us!
Hair Apprentice Charley has been with the team at Saks Hair Barnard Castle since 2016 and is taking everything in her stride - she is passionate about making customers feel extra SPECIAL during and after their visit to the salon and she enjoy taking part in exciting events such as the Catwalking launch evening that took place in July at Bowes Museum.
Sasha is our hair apprentice and joins us after a short stint in retail. She's already a huge hit with the customers! Sasha's passionate about fashion and we know she's going to go places, watch this space!
