Sarah James

For as long as she can remember, Sarah has always loved doing hair: on her dolls, friends, the children she babysat, pretty much anybody that would let her. Halfway through college, Sarah realized that she wanted to be a cosmetologist. Two months after graduating from MWSU, she started classes at Paris II Cosmetology School. 

At first, Sarah thought that doing hair was her job for "right now" but it didn`t take long to realize it was her "forever" career!  She has been a cosmetologist for 10 years, and truly loves what she does. Sarah strives to always make her clients feel their best!  The quality of her work is the most important of her goals, not the quantity of clients she has.  "It is an amazing feeling to know I have made someone feel beautiful!"

During the last few years, Sarah has broadened her horizons and been a part of some new and exciting hair experiences. For the last year, she has had the privilege of doing hair for fashion spreads in Home and The Northland Magazine and for several runway shows, including Rock of Fashion and Aura`s Haute for Haiti Rock the Runway.  Last year, Sarah was part of a team that did 6 different looks for a Kansas City Creative Infusion Look Book. These have all been amazing experiences that  renewed and refreshed her love for hair!   To continue her education and keep her skills fresh, Sarah strives to attend at least two hair shows or classes a year. Being updated on the latest trends and techniques is something she feels her clients deserve.

Most importantly, Sarah is a wife and mother! Ms. James met her husband during her last semester of college and was married in April of 2004. In 2008, they had a baby boy. He is the love of their lives and they are so blessed to be his parents! "It`s guaranteed if you sit in my chair, you will hear about our silly, fun-loving kid!"

"I feel I am one of the luckiest people in the world! I have an awesome family and a job I love. Life doesn`t get much better than that!!" -Sarah
