Sarah,

My name is Sarah and I have over 6 years of industry experience. I attended the Aveda Institute of Minneapolis in 2015 and from there worked in salons across the Twin Cities and Mankato. I love performing all services, however, my absolute favorites are all things blonding and balayage.

I am constantly learning and perfecting my techniques. On my free time, I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and our 3 fur babies. I hope to see you soon!
