Sarah’s journey to opening Pretty & Co. was a blend of hard work, education, and the desire to create something of her own within the salon world. Having competed and placed in both Canadian and North American styling awards, travelled with some of the world’s top stylists to Spain, Paris, and Italy, and has had her work published in several magazines, Sarah is an expert. As a wife and a mother, Sarah has worked to create time in her life to make herself feel pretty and she loves giving that gift to her clients.
Sarah's favourite things to create:
The hair that you've dreamed of that you can style and maintain at home.
