I don’t want to be remembered. I strive to be unforgettable . Ebru Sak
Ebru Sak is a Turkish/Australian beauty entrepreneur with, business acumen, courage and a passion for helping women shine brighter. With over 25 years’ experience in hair and beauty and a thriving Melbourne salon – Saks, Ebru has created a destination for beauty that’s both welcoming, uplifting and empowering.
Born into a conservative Turkish family, the bright student with dreams of being a doctor, lived an early childhood beset with personal challenges – ranging from a lack of educational opportunities and an arranged marriage.
At 14, Ebru was uprooted from Melbourne and moved to Turkey for an arranged marriage.
Fortunately, at the same time, she became absorbed and entranced the atmosphere of service and glamour at her uncle’s renowned hair and beauty salon in Istanbul. The salon’s old-world client service and attentiveness with a modern twist would prove to be a hallmark of her future business ventures.
At 16, an arranged marriage, followed by domestic violence and teenage motherhood, Ebru courageously, left the marriage, but was then shunned by her family and Turkish community.
As one of the few women in the migrant Turkish community to attempt and survive divorce, Ebru has always been a trailblazer. The strength and courage which helped her through those testing times, became an advantage in her early business ventures, as well as her natural positivity.
At the core of Ebru’s business philosophy is the desire to empower every woman to feel their best inside and out. It’s a mix of her worldly wisdom, a product range and salon service which shows her clients how to streamline their beauty routines to achieve maximum effect and save valuable time.
Ebru’s career achievements are many. She has launched and successfully managed two hair salons and four product ranges (professional and retail). Through her passion, Ebru is in the process of establishing Nourish by Ebru as an ethical product line and a non-profit charitable foundation to support women experiencing domestic violence. Alongside this, Ebru has consistently supported women in the industry, having trained two apprentices and seen their careers flourish.
Through the launch and success of her business ventures, Ebru has clearly found her market: busy professional women, short on time but not willing to compromise on beauty.
What sets Ebru apart in a highly competitive and commoditised industry is her true attention and meticulous care for every client.
