Sara is a 23 year veteran of the industry. In 2000, at the age of 18, she started her career at the Aveda Institute of Minneapolis. After being in Minneapolis for a year and graduating from Aveda, life brought Sara back to the area, still with big dreams in mind. Over the years, she worked at Language of Hair and Elysium, among other places, until deciding she liked doing things her own way. Education has been a side passion of hers. Sara took her first continuing education class with David Adams of Aveda and she was addicted; she needed to know more. Sara took classes with Kim Vo, Lupe Voss, Ronnie Stam, Michael Angelo, and the late great Oribe. Throughout her training, she worked at developing her personal style. Growing up in the 80’s-90’s supermodel era, long layers with volume holds dear to her heart, but she never shys away from a pixie. Sara opened her own salon, Vain in 2008 in downtown Duluth and operated it for 7 years before selling and moving back to Minneapolis. A few years later, she decided Duluth was home and she moved back. Being from the area, Sara likes to be outside and enjoys mountain biking, hiking and snowboarding and cross country skiing. You can also find her at a brewery with a hazy in hand.
