Saks Salon Owners' 2-Day Conference

Tuesday, 05 November 2019 15:42

Saks UK recently held its annual get-together for salon owners with an inspiring two-day event held at the L’Oréal head office in Hammersmith, London.

Breaking out on day-2 to the Hard Rock Hotel and The Crystal Maze, the Saks HQ team shared exciting brand, hair and beauty announcements for 2020, which by all accounts is set to be another good one for a brand that’s been a constant presence on our high streets of the UK since 1974.


First up it was over to L’Oréal’s Hammersmith HQ where everyone was brought up to speed with market insights and their brilliant Salon Emotion concept. All about helping salons transform into salons of today through an enhanced digital experience, redesigned interiors, quality service and expertly trained and motivated teams. This already being part of Saks’ ongoing strategy.


In the afternoon the Saks HQ team – that’s Janet King for Marketing, Luke Pluckrose for Hair, Katie Gledhill of Saks Beauty Halifax for Beauty, and Jezz Ellis for Operations – demonstrated how Saks UK will be helping and supporting salons with all of the latest ideas and innovations.


Day Two played out at The Crystal Maze. The ultimate team challenge game described as being ‘based on the outrageously popular 90s TV show – now a stunningly immersive adventure. Grab some friends, run around like loons, yell like there’s no tomorrow, complete a variety of tricky challenges and end up wearing some sensational satin bomber-jackets’.

The two winning teams were led by dynamic salon owners Michelle Shergill of Saks West Bridgford and Katie Gledhill of Saks Beauty Halifax.  “The Saks Conference was a brilliant opportunity to get together and share our exciting plans for the year ahead,” commented Stephen Kee, Managing Director of Saks. “There is so much that we do for our salon owners so it’s important for us to let them know about all the support that’s available. We don’t just tell salons how to do things; we do it for them.  This leaves them to get on with doing what they love – looking after their customers, salon and team.”
