ABOUT SARA MARIE:
Sara has 20+ years in the salon world, but has always had a passion for hair. Born in a small town in Southern Oregon, she became a hairstylist (unlicensed) at the age of 15 as a high school freshman, always playing with friends’ hair at breaks/lunches, and by her junior year was THE go-to girl for updos. Shortly after high school, she decided to turn her passion into a career. She has always had an unquenchable thirst to learn and has traveled the world to be taught by some of the very best in the industry. Sara has turned her passion to learn into a passion to teach, pioneering the associate program at Salon 554. In the salon, you will find likely find her coaching and mentoring the next generation of stylists with her genuine passion and deep knowledge of everything hair. She loves finding new and unique techniques and skills, staying up on the latest trends, and sharing them with our team at 554. When she’s not in the salon, she’s most likely enjoying a CrossFit class or playing competitive soccer. Her favorite way to relax is to hang out with her sons Cooper and Sawyer.
"My visit to 554 was amazing. Sarah is very knowledgeable about mixed girl curls. I went in thinking I was was going to leave with super short hair since so much needed to be corrected but NOPE! She was able to save the length while bringing my curls to a bounce I haven't seen since I was a child! The evironment is cozy and fun. All around a great experience. I will be returning. Did i mention that I love my hair!? " - Darleen H.
