    Good find, but I would avoid the one in Nottingham. I had a bad cut there, but thought I'd give them another chance (different stylist), and that one was even worse!

    I'm sure others are very good though! x

    Thanks! Have emailed our local Sacs salon to enquire further about restrictions, actual cost, etc.

    Just noticed on the website as well a link to reccommend a friend, which entitles you both to a £10 voucher.
    http://www.saks.co.uk/tell-a-friend.asp

    Not sure if you could use the voucher in conjunction with the other offer but it's worth a go.

    I've just booked to be a "hair model" at one of their training academies, never been one before so it will be an interesting experience!

    If you don't live near an academy, Saks also do this at some of their salons.

    Could anyone tell me what Saks prices are like - 2008 ones or even 1998 if you have been for your appointment?!!! I'm short on cash at the moment and would love a good cut and highlights but nt sure if I could afford it or it'd be worth my travelling time to get to a salon.

    Thanks

    Hi I went back to see the only hairdresser that I've ever felt comfortable with, and had a haircut as part of this deal.

    Normally the haircut is something like £42, and £28 as part of this deal.

    Also, if you are part of a big company, Saks will give you a discount - I think ours was 30% off the first haircut or colour, and then maybe 10% off for every visit after - just ask them & I bet they'll help you out.

    Yes, they warned me about that but I'm not fussed. I'm in desperate need of a good haircut and don't have much spare cash so at £5 for a Saks one I'm willing to sit in the chair for a couple of hours.

    I had my £5 cut at their Northern training academy in Darlington yesterday and I'm very pleased. Took about 2 hours but it actually flew past, was interesting to listen to the way they taught too. I'll certainly be going back and probably for a colour next time as that only costs £15 extra.

    I found out about it via their website, it says:-

    Interested in being a model?
    Saks Academies nationwide are always looking for models for supervised training sessions. For London call 020 7379 3563, for Scotland call 0141 222 2662, for the North call 01325 341 621.

    Thanks OP

    My daughter and I have had our haircuts today and we are both very pleased with the results. Cost £49.98 for the two of us.

    We were both given 2 x £10 off vouchers for future visits (til Sep) and that was after I had already decided that this was the place I was going to return to.

    I have the best haircut I have had in years! Plus they pleased a 15 year old - how easy it that to do?



    (Course wish I lived near an academy to get it all for £5 but I dont. I checked. LOL

    i'm going after work today, in 90 minutes actually! she mentioned something about putting me down as having a voucher on the phone but i can't see anything about that online so here's hoping they don't ask

    (i wish there was one near me too jellybaby but alas it's the middle of nowhere here )

    i went to saks in bury. when i called them to book the appointment saying that there is an offer on the website for 33% off etc. they said they are not participating in that offer and i would need a voucher which i would get from te june's issue of the cosmopolitan magazine. so i got the magazine and the voucher.
    booked appointed for 11.30 on tues, got a call at 9.00 am saying the stylist who was to do my cut has called in sick so the most senior stylist will cut my hair but for the same price as the other one. so was happy with that.
    then when i went for the appointment they were running 10 minutes late , so i got a free hair treatment as well. plus got another £10 voucher , i also received a £10 voucher from the saks website as well .

    the cut with the senor stylist usually costs £45 and i paid £23!!!

    had a brilliant cut , they stylist was really good, staff were really nice and friendly , will definitely go there again!!
