Meet The Team.

Sophia
Master Stylist

The best investment I made into my career was becoming ABCH certified (American Board Certified Hair Colorist). It has allowed me to truly understand hair from the inside out. The second best investment I made was attending the first national hair loss conference. I learned so much about the causes of hair loss and the variety of solutions to those causes.

Creativity and the hair industry run in my family. I stumbled into hair during high school and graduated with a cosmetology career. I tried college twice throughout the years, but hair was always there. Once I found Xanadu that was it. I knew. Connecting with my clients is the best feeling and the smiles are the greatest reward.

 

In my spare time I take care of my two boys (dog mom) and my variety of plants.

Sarah
Stylist

Sarah's goal would be to consistently surpass client expectations. Two things that bring her joy are making connections and finding solutions. She gets to connect with her clients daily and brainstorm to find cuts, color, and styling techniques that suit their hair type, maintenance, and lifestyle!

Sarah's favorite type of haircut:  Long bobs to pixies! WHY? She enjoys customizing each cut based on hair density, texture, and styling preferences. She also enjoys smoothing treatments and scalp treatments.

Fun Fact:  She was named after the Sahara Desert!

"I will continue to learn daily and strive to understand the hair needs and wants of everyone who sits in my chair."

FAVORITE QUOTE? Comparison is the thief of happiness.
