About Sara

Sara began her journey in the hair and beauty industry in 2009, when she enrolled at the San Francisco Institute of Esthetics and Cosmetology. Upon graduating she began an advanced training program at The Joe Hamer Salon, eventually working her way to a master cutting and color specialist.


From there she settled and created roots at Miller and Mane Salon in Mill Valley. Being apart of the brand and team for 6 years, she helped to spearhead the development of their education program along with providing beautiful custom hair services to her loyal, loving clientele.


In 2020 she spread her wings and opened the Manes by Sara salon location in the heart of downtown Mill Valley. A sanctuary and space for creativity to flow, and for others to grow and share their love of all things hair.


Throughout her career and growth as a stylist; Sara became aware of the importance of fostering connection and relationships with clients, and bringing that to the forefront of education programs for stylists. It is more than just technical skill, it's the experience and overall feel that a stylist brings to each guest. This is something that Sara brings to the forefront of her teaching style and daily life behind the chair.


Sara was previously on the team of Goldwell Artists for 5+ years and is a certified Goldwell Master Colorist. In addition to being a transformation specialist, Sara has been an extension artist for 8+ years and is certified in Great Lengths. Clients from all over the Bay Area know and love Sara for her dedication and deep love for her signature blondes, lived in textured haircuts and effortless beautiful styles.
