Sara Franzello

Owner and Master Stylist 

Hello, Love!

I’m Sara, owner and stylist of Studio 356. It is my absolute joy to provide an exceptional salon experience for all our guests. After 22 years working just about every corner of the beauty industry, I can honestly say this is my life’s passion. Whether it’s taking care of guests, creating a peaceful atmosphere or training and mentoring my amazing team, I bring a unique perspective to all things salon.


Color and hair cutting have always been my cup of tea, aka wine, behind the chair. While I can do and love all things color, I excel at creating stunning natural looking color with specialties in blonding, customized foil work and blending grey to keep you looking and feeling youthful. I enjoy cutting in general and my heart has a special place for curly girls. As one myself, I know all the emotions that come with sitting in the chair and have spent years perfecting cutting and styling techniques for curls. 


I absolutely love helping women look and feel amazing while creating hair that fits their lifestyle and pride myself on being honest and upfront about the pros/cons of hair goals. I will always take the time to guide you through the process of what to expect during your salon visits and the journey it takes to achieve your best hair ever.  


When I’m not thinking up something new for the salon, I enjoy my quiet time around the house or in the garden, crafting and of course reading with my cat in my lap. Weekends are for exploring this beautiful area, hiking the Shenandoah or relaxing at winery/brewery with my hubby. 


To best serve my existing guests, I’m only accepting New Guests for Curly Cuts or by direct referral and email consultation. 


You’ll see me behind the chair:

Every Tuesday 11-8 and Wednesday 10-6

Every other Thursday 11-7 and Saturday 9-5
