… A personal note from Sam …

I never expected to find myself in a career where I get to create art every day while also building meaningful connections with so many different people… but I am so incredibly grateful that I get to call this my life! Helping other women see their own beauty and find their confidence again is my absolute favorite part of this career! 


In my time outside of the salon, I love to relax with my husband and our three furbabies. You can typically find me out on a paddleboard in the summer, practicing martial arts, or checking out a new crystal shop. Fall is my favorite season, hands down! I’m a sucker for a good PSL, pumpkin patches, scarves, and boots! I believe everyone comes into your life for a reason, there is something to be learned from everything in life, and positivity is contagious. I’m so excited to meet you and help you achieve the best hair day ever!!
