A note from Sara
I believe that hair stylists aren’t only creative, beautifying, faux therapists and chemists. I believe that we are capable of building wealth for ourselves and our families and of creating a sustainable business which aligns with our purpose, fulfills our desires, and challenges our minds.
We are a bright, promising, driven and special set of humans, and as we set and achieve our goals, we return our energy back into our communities, contributing to this momentous shift I see happening before my eyes.

"Sara immediately helped with getting me organized and putting systems in place. She has become my mentor, friend and family.
COVID-19 hit the beauty industry hard. Sara and I were in a groove with coaching and she held my hand figuring out how to pivot. She helped me launch my beauty retail and guided me while I moved into a new store front. I honestly couldn’t have done it without her.
I no longer feel alone. Sara is a wonderful mentor and will coach you in in a style that suits your own. She is patient, caring and highly professional.
If you are hesitant about coaching, Sara is your girl.
Just do it!"
- Erica, Poppy and Dolly
“Over the last several months during my meetings with Sara, we have touched base on everything from the logistics of owning your own salon, how to grow your business, to truly getting down to the root of your "why" and your "purpose".
I mention this last thing because Sara encouraged me to dig deep to get to the root of my passion to drive my own success. I personally found this to be so helpful!
Sara has encouraged me to go above and beyond to know my own worth in this business. This alone has given me so much confidence going into becoming a salon owner. Not to mention streamlining all of my thoughts into an organized spreadsheet.
She is not only super passionate about helping others but has the training and experience to influence others in gaining their own success. I would recommend Sara and her coaching sessions to everyone in the beauty industry! You will 100% come out ready to level up your brand with the most confidence and purpose!”
