Hello, beautiful! My name is Sara and I happily live in Culpeper, Va with my hubby and fur baby. I’ve been a stylist for 19 years already, and looking back, can’t remember a time in my life when my hands weren’t in hair. My love and fascination started as a toddler and has never left me. My mom says she knew I would be a hairdresser with an emphasis on color when I was about 5 or 6 years old. Yes, there’s a story here that involves Barbies, random household items and an all “too quiet” room. It took me a little longer to figure all that out…fast forward to 2001, when I entered beauty school, fell in love with an industry and never looked back.
I’ve always been a little bit of an education junkie (which is more sophisticated than saying nerd 😂) and that led me to color education where I had the honor of sharing knowledge and techniques with hairdressers for more than half my career. Now, I enjoy being the student, going to classes a couple times a year taking everything learned from them and apply to my clients. While I love all things color, I excel at creating beautiful, dimensional hair color with specialties in blonding, grey blending and customized foil work.
I absolutely love helping women look and feel amazing while creating hair that fits their lifestyle. I pride myself on being honest and upfront about the pros/cons of hair goals and guiding you through the process of what to expect during your salon visit and hair journeys. Clients usually leave with some sort of recommendation of things to do around the area, most often the winery and brewery scene, which the hubby and I explore most weekends when we aren’t working in the garden or hiking through the beautiful Shenandoah.
If you’re ready to be pampered, indulge in a relaxing hair experience and want to hear the rest of that Barbie story, I think we’d hit it off! Just head to the new guest page to get started. I can’t wait to meet you!
