Our expert team at our hair and beauty salon in Guisborough are SO passionate about what they do. Find out a little bit more about our salon owners Sarah and Debbie and our stylists and therapists here.
HAIR SALON OWNER
My hair speciality is creative cutting - choosing the best technique and shape for the hair and face can transform a person. I have a wonderful team and I love people who’re not afraid to change it up like Charlize Theron - amazing with long golden tresses or a sophisticated short. Alexa Chung as well - the fringe! Me-time is rare. I'm in the salon or trying to hook up with friends and family and I love walking my dog Luca. I’ve loved all my holidays. Camping in France when my kids were small. And skiing - you can laugh, cry and scare yourself all in minutes. We love Thursday night sweets in the salon. Around 5ish one of us nips out for goodies. A random fact… It took me NINE times to pass my driving test. They called me Maureen from the Driving School TV show. I love Saks because I started over 30 years ago and Saks is still full of amazing people. So many opportunities, like-minded people, creative courses, photoshoots. Saks is a family - everyone is supportive whatever your goal. And WE LOVE TO PARTY!
BEAUTY SALON OWNER
Debbie is our Beauty Salon owner and all-round beauty expert who lives and breathes Saks Beauty. With 27 years in the beauty industry she is obsessed with providing beauty treatments to help make a difference to your day, specialising in IPL hair removal, advanced electrolysis and skin treatments. She is grateful to have found her perfect work-family life balance and to have an amazing hard working team of therapists. Loves making memories with her two gorgeous boys, thrives on setting goals, planning, to do lists and in her 'me-time' enjoys fitness classes- actually admitting she LOVES burpees!
My hair speciality is COLOUR ever since completing my L’Oreal Colour Degree, especially enhancing natural hair. I love making customers feel confident and seeing them smile. Getting to know them and making them feel amazing – there’s no better feeling. A hair icon is Jennifer Lawrence. Whether it’s long or short, blonde or brunette she rocks every look. Best Saks moment *so far*? Attending the Saks festival after only being here a year. It was amazing to see how much of a big family Saks is! Me-time is a run or a massage. For my hols I choose Thailand. I spent a month there and can’t wait to go back. A guilty pleasure is… I can’t start my day without coffee. A random fact? I don’t colour my hair. I’m lucky that it’s got a coppery tone. And I love Saks because the team is fantastic, and the support and ongoing education is so motivating. I’ve been in the industry for 15 years and being with a company like Saks keeps me inspired to keep doing what I love!
My hair speciality is highlighting - colour to make your hair pop or blend if you prefer. I think adding a little lift, maybe caramel tones, creamy blondes or adding some richness really does make you feel better! When I started doing hair, I mostly loved seeing that end-result, but now it’s getting to know my customers. Hair icon? Pamela Anderson - super golden, bouncy glam. Also, a big mention for Hailey Bieber, the queen of natural blonde. My best Saks bit so far was the Saks festival and awards and realising how big the Saks family is! Me-time is making plans for most weekends visiting friends and family. Cocktails in the pub or garden and adventurous days out. A fave holiday is Disneyland Paris! I went with my sister, and we loved it. A guilty pleasure is chocolate cake and custard. Fave read? The Great Gatsby. You don’t know this, I used to be competitor dancer, and now I quite often break out a slit on the dance floor! I love Saks because it isn’t just a job, it’s a family. I love our team, our customers and I love our brand values.
Our senior stylist and hair extensions specialist, Masie is no stranger to Saks, having been part of our family her whole hairdressing career. Best bits? – styling for photoshoots, meeting lots of like-minded Saks people and encouraging each other to thrive, as well as making customers feel good about themselves. Fave hair icon? Emily Monk. Best Saks moment? Winning Saks Apprentice of the Year 2019. Me time? Maisie says “I love to spend quality time with my friends and family making memories, going on holidays and having days out together”. Guilty pleasure? Writing lists and plans! Random fact? My family call me Judith Chambers! Why does she love Saks? Masie says “I love Saks because it’s like one big family. The team constantly encourage new, exciting ventures and plan amazing events where everyone just wants the best for each other.
My hair speciality? Updos and pin-ups are a great way to get very creative! My fave part of my job - I know everyone says it but it’s so rewarding when you’ve made someone feel special. It’s why we do what we do. I’d say my best Saks experience so far is that I joined just after the first lockdown so at that time we couldn’t mingle with the other teams. Therefore my favourite has got to be our Saks Festival/Awards. What a day and night, we had a blast! When I’m not in the salon you’ll find me taking long walks on the beach – so relaxing. Speaking of beaches, my fave holiday destination is Cypress – the beaches are gorgeous there. A guilty pleasure is my love of tomato ketchup. Can’t eat a thing without it! Savoury only don’t worry! And I love reading Harry Potter – I’ve read them all since being young – always good to go back to. A random fact about me is that I loooove anything glittery and sparkly. I don’t like to blend with the crowd! And I love Saks because…. Everyday I learn something new and the team really is like a family to me. I LOVE being part of Saks!
My favourite part of the job is seeing the look on customers’ faces when they’ve been transformed. I’m learning all aspects of hairdressing but I’m particularly loving highlighting. Colour changes are just the best. My fave hair icon is Kylie Jenner as she’s not scared to change-up her look with fun colours and different styles. The best bit about working at Saks is that I get to work with my mum – salon owner Sarah – as we really do get on so well! For free time I love spending time with my friends and family. I love going out for cocktails and going to the gym and walking our dog at the beach with the fam. Holidays? I have two fave destinations. Ibiza for the party-life and Lake Garda for the beauty of it. A guilty pleasure is watching loads of true crime documentaries – might sound a bit strange but I’m obsessed! My favourite read is any book by Vex King as they are so positive and inspirational. A random fact about me is that I won Yarm’s Got Talent competition when I was just five years’ old. For singing a Hannah Montana song! With a guitar. And the cutest cowgirl boots you’ve ever seen. Get the picture!? I love Saks because I know that the training is going to give me such brilliant opportunities and I love being part of a big team!
