Saks A-Team Unveils Collection

Saks’ year-long, creative hair programme Saks A-Team has culminated in a hair collection and professional photoshoot.

Saks A-Team

The Saks A-team gathered at Quest Studios in London with mentor, Saks Artist and colourist extraordinaire, Sarah Clarke-Lees.

A-Teamers were tasked with choosing a theme and then creating two hair looks that were different but linked in some way. Inspiration included music (Boy George and Lady Gaga), high-end fashion, Vivienne Westwood and all-things celestial and horoscopes.

They styled the clothes and worked with a MUA to come up with a look which complimented the hair. To create the styles, the Saks A-Team used lots of unusual techniques and materials, from gold feathers to clothes made from hair.

Creative Director Luke Pluckrose said: “A-Team is a great opportunity for stylists within Saks to come out of the salon environment, network with other stylists and create looks that they wouldn’t typically do within their salon. It’s a chance for them to showcase their creativity and this year’s team did just that with a fantastic collection illustrating what inspires them. From the high-end fashion inside the covers of Vogue, the horoscopes they read and the icons they follow to the music they listen to.”
