This is serious business.

As a kid, when Sammi’s dad was on hair duty, everything was a fiasco. She quickly learned to pull a look together – all on her own. Right about this time, her favorite cousin was a tomboy, that didn’t brush her hair. Sammi couldn’t tolerate that, so she started doing makeovers at the age of nine. She realized right then and there what she wanted to be when she grew up.

Well, she’s all grown up now, finished beauty school and completed her associate program with level 4AA stylist, Carrie Caver. She’s one of the newer faces to the family, but is already raving about the SAS teamwork, camaraderie and support system.

She claims she doesn’t have an athletic bone in her body, but she is a beginner yogi (she’s been doing it a year), and finds tranquility and balance in it. She enjoys being outdoors and hiking.

She is creative and spends free time drawing and painting; something she says helps translates in her work. “I look at hair as a canvas.”

Like with yoga and her painting, Sammi is excited to evolve with the cosmetology industry. She is passionate about learning, growing with her clients and thrilled to be a part of the SAS family.

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall….

Heather is one of the gems in our salon who help guests stay young and feel rejuvenated. She specializes in waxing, facials, hydrafacials, chemical peels, and makeup and eye lash extensions. Her personal forte is waxing, and her guests and SAS family regard her as the “wax whisperer.”

Heather says clients are the best part of her career. She loves her clientele and meeting new guests and strives to make each person feel comfortable and at home. She possesses a wildly expert knowledge of skin care products and can meet any guest’s beauty needs. She is open and approachable, which she says is the best personality trait she can offer. Her guests trust her. She keeps an open mind and always appreciates feedback.

As a mom, Heather is smitten with her son Grayson, and can’t get enough of watching him grow up and change. She looks forward to opportunities to pack up her car and take a road trip to visit her best friend, who also has a son. They often day trip to Chicago or explore Indianapolis. One day, Heather wants to go off the grid somewhere in Italy.

In case you’re wondering, her go-to pampering experience at SAS is a hydrafacial: she raves about the results, and hey, her kiddo isn’t the only thing keeping her young at heart.
