Saks – the UK’s biggest hair and beauty salon group with over 100 salons nationwide – has announced the faces chosen to be members of Saks A-Team 2017; the brand’s avant-garde hair training programme.
Luke Pluckrose, Creative Director and head of Saks Art Team, says: “Saks A-Team is special – it’s such an exciting process. Putting shouts out, seeing our stylists present their ideas and then getting to work closely with those who make it onto the team is a fantastic part of my role.
Luke continues: “Two previous A Teamers are now fully fledged members of the Saks Art Team. Sarah Clarke-Lees and Shaun Stringfellow deliver advanced hair training and represent the Saks brand at shoots and shows. Sarah’s also been selected by L’Oréal Professionnel with five other leading female colourists to put on a Colorful Hair show at this year’s Colour Trophy – the sky’s the limit!”
A-Teamers also get to assist Saks Art Team session styling backstage at events and shows. In previous years, team members have contributed at events such as the BRITs, MOBOs, London and Paris Fashion Weeks, Chelsea Flower Show and more as well as putting on photoshoots and runway shows at the legendary Saks Gathering events.
