WIN! A free cut and blow dry from the professionals at Saks Hairdressers in Exeter

PUBLISHED: 10:47 12 February 2015 | UPDATED: 10:47 12 February 2015




Saks is celebrating its amazing heritage in British hairdressing and 40 years in the business with a brand new collection, ICONIC, a homage to being all-woman, today


Saks, located in Princesshay, Exeter is excited to be rolling out the new collection to its customers. Since opening its Exeter branch in 2012, Saks has become well known for its quality, friendly staff and company ethos - to transform the way their customers look and feel, each and every day. This ethos has secured five national Saks Awards, a regional finalist place in the L’Oreal Colour Trophy and a finalist place in the Creative Head Awards - a testament to owner Eleanor Wilson and her Exeter team.

Saks is a salon that stays ahead of modern trends and keeps a close eye on the catwalks of London, New York, Paris and Milan. In 2014 the Exeter team were on hand to style at events such as the Brit Awards, London Fashion Week, The Clothes Show Live and Cosmopolitan magazine’s #fashfest.

The new Saks ICONIC collection embraces hair heroines who have captivated audiences through the decades with their inner elegance and everyday glamour.

Eleanor Wilson, owner of Saks, Princesshay says: “We all know that having great hair not only makes you look good it makes you feel good too. Combining the essence of the new ICONIC women collection into your own look makes you feel on top of the world.


“We aim to make each and every customer that walks through our doors feel special – it’s the heart of everything we do. Our stylists are excited to bring out your chosen brand of ICONIC, who will you be?”

From Twiggy’s waiflike crop and Marilyn’s tousled allure to Brigitte’s tumbling waves, ICONIC women are loved for their joie de vivre and character. Ellie and her team promise to translate these timeless hair looks and make them your own.

Take a look through a few of the trends from the new collection:



Androgynous and elfin, that’s Twiggy at Saks. She’s playful and loves translating the ICONIC look of the ’60s into her sleek crop.

Colour? Twiggy at Saks works this beautiful complexion-enhancing apricot and cream blonde combo to a T. This flattering look gives fabulous French appeal for brunettes too. How do you channel your inner Twiggy? One thing’s for sure…Bambi eyes are a given, the bigger the better!


Oh my! Brigitte at Saks is the trailblazer who stands out in the crowd. Every. Time. Nonchalant and bohemian, she doesn’t follow fashion and she loves a Barbarella-style blow-dry. Colour? Brigitte at Saks rocks rusty brunette waves, artfully highlighted in lustrous copper-tones to frame her face and add character and depth to her cascading wavy tresses.


Ah, Jackie at Saks is the cool girl-about-town who fuses a nod to the great British mod-look with her thoroughly modern Milly style of today.

Here Saks takes the classic bob to dizzy heights. This easy-to-style look works perfectly with cappuccino tones and multi-tonal shades. It’s a sure-fire winner for shiny, healthy hair! Choose Jackie at Saks and your stylist will create cute flicks and a bang-bang fringe just for you.


The ICONIC collection poster girl…that’s Marilyn at Saks. This oh-so-versatile mid-length cut works equally well with peroxide blonde Marilyn curls and honeyed boho waves, a la Kate Moss. Eye-catching every time.

If you’re looking for a new yet ICONIC look this spring, look no further than Saks in Princesshay. To book your new look or for a free consultation, contact the salon in on 01392 256999 or pop in!
