Why Choose SankÉ?

In 1994, three individuals with a shared passion met. Three hairdressers with a passion for hair and education. Together they had one shared goal: to achieve shiny, healthy hair. After a few brainstorming sessions and a leap in the dark, a new concept was born: Sanké Hairdressers.

Sanké origins may lie in Belgium, but its name is derived from the Japanese language: “san” which stands for three, and an abbreviation of “Keos Kami” which stands for hair. Today Sanké Hairdressers includes 22 salons in Belgium (sanke.be) and 1 salon in the United States (Houston, Texas).

A Kingwood Native, I grew up working in my parents hair salon here. After over 30 years in the industry, opening my own salon has been a dream come true. I am more passionate about hairdressing than ever before. Continual education and ever evolving trends and techniques make this profession exciting and fresh at all times. Our salon’s association with Sanké Hairdressers of Belgium gives international training opportunities, in addition to our local training events. We love to stay on trend and up to date, and share knowledge with each other to work as a team for the benefit of each guest. Ultimately, it comes down to the person in my chair. There is nothing quite like the reward of seeing a huge smile on a guests face when they love their hair. That’s what it’s all about for me. -REDKEN Certified Designer -REDKEN Certified Hair Colorist
