A hair salon owner has joined the UK and Ireland artistic team of two hair product brands.

25-year-old Luke Hawkins from Goring-on-Thames has joined the teams at Matrix and Pulp Riot.

The owner of Saco Hair Goring-on-Thames will now be responsible for representing both brands live on stage at large-scale events.

Mr Hawkins said: "Joining the Matrix and Pulp Riot UK & Ireland artistic team is an incredible honour and I am grateful for the opportunity to help further enhance the reputation of the two brands among other hairdressers, educating them on how they can best utilise the right products in order to style their client’s hair with results they will love."

The partnership means Matrix and Pulp Riot's retail products, including the award-winning Matrix Total Results Dark Envy Shampoo and Red Neutralization Mask, will be available at Saco Hair Goring-on-Thames.

These products will be utilised by Mr Hawkins and his team on their customers.

Saco Hair Goring-on-Thames continues to grow, specialising in innovative hair cutting and colouring services, and nurturing young talent.

The salon is also part of the Green Salon Collective, a sustainability-focused organisation, underlining its commitment to delivering expert services with a mindful approach.

Green Salon Collective's main focus is finding circular solutions for salon waste.

The three most common ways they handle salon waste are recycling, recovery and composting.
