A Chat with Sara Brown Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I use organic, cruelty-free (vegan) styling products, shampoos, conditioners, and colors. My favorite brands are Paul Mitchell, Aveda, Pravana Nevo, Surface, and Colorproof. I also sell locally made organic beauty products from Wholehearted Apothecary, as well as a vegan lifestyle line, Arbonne.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Nothing is more beautiful than being healthy and kind to others. Parabens, known to disrupt the body's endocrine system and likely be the cause of various types of cancer, are still found in 85% of cosmetic products. I take pride in providing wholesome services and paraben-free products.
What do you love most about your job?
My favorite part about my job is the relationships I build with people. I love that I get to help people to relax, feel confident, beautiful, and healthy.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Ten years ago, my very first client told me that I was the "sunshine of her week." She is a sweet, older lady who is always fun to be around and truthfully, the sunshine of my own week. Her independent nature and inspiring belief in me provided the solid foundation on which I built an entire career.
