Sarah
Heasty

Hair And Color Specialist

Doing hair is a passion Sarah has had her whole life. She moved to Wilmington from a small Indiana town in search of a more peaceful life and during the transition she started doing hair as a small hobby. Sarah fell head over heels so quick that she dropped everything else, dove head first into the beauty world and never looked back! She will not only give you your dream hair but Sarah will provide you with an energetic salon experience. Her favorite part about what she does is getting to know each client that sits in her chair. Sarah will not only make you feel like a best friend , but she will make sure you leave the studio as a brand new person.

Olivia
Rose

Permanent Makeup Artist

Olivia has been in the permanent makeup industry for about 5 years now and truly fell in love with the process of making people look and feel like their best selves! Being a permanent makeup artist may distract you from the fact she was born and spent half of her life in Northern Wisconsin. She enjoys fishing and duck hunting with her boyfriend here on the Cape Fear river in her spare time! Anything from eyebrows, eyeliner, lip blushing, faux freckles to micro-needling. Olivia is ready to make your makeup routine a million times easier!
