Sara Dahlstrom

Sara was born and raised on Lummi Island and living in a small town, there wasn't much to do on those rainy days. I guess you could say she’s been doing hair since she was five when she would cut and "color" her Barbie's hair and not to mention do make overs on her American Girl dolls. Her mom wasn't too thrilled, so by the time she was 21 she enrolled herself into Toni and Guy hairdressing academy in Bellingham, Washington (in 2010) where she began to transform my Barbie creations into real life.

She then moved to Austin, Texas to fulfill her dreams. Sara had a jammed packed schedule in Austin and was behind the chair for 7.5 years. Sara also got her other dream job of being an educator. She travels around the untied states and educates salons on the wonderful product line, R+Co. This product line is vegan, sulfate free, paraben free, color sage, and is perfect for everyone. She is very passionate about the product line and would love to chat with you about it!

Sara then made the decision to move back to Washington with her family and her beautiful four year old son in June of 2019.

Sara considers herself so lucky to wake up every morning knowing that she has a job that she absolutely loves and being surrounded by other amazing hairstylists. She loves the one on one time with her clients and is constantly learning something new, not just about styling, but about her clients and their life.
