Sarah O’Dea

As a 14-year veteran of the business, Sarah O’Dea has built a career on making people happy – a fact that makes her very happy too.

Sarah started right here at Rau Salon and has continued to grow and flourish ever since. She completed our apprenticeship program with Wendy Rau at just 18 years old, and we’ve seen the labors of her hard work first hand. She is now a cosmetologist, esthetician, and soon-to-be lash artist. “An interest in hair turned into a passion for the whole industry,” said Sarah. “My clients put their trust in me, and let me be creative. I love having the opportunity to get to turn someone’s day around and transform them. In my chair they don’t have to think or worry, they can shut off the outside world and let me pamper them for a change. Every day I get to make people feel and look beautiful – what a cool job that is!

Knowing that there’s always room to grow, and that trends are always changing, Sarah seeks out new opportunities to expand her list of services. She is currently training to become a certified eyelash extension artist, so that she can continue to offer the latest and the very best in beauty services.

Personalized customer service from start to finish is always to be expected when working with Sarah, and her loyal clientele can certainly attest to her great work.

“My clients are always my top priority when they are in my chair, and I want to make sure they feel special and well taken care of. Providing education and putting their interests first is very important. Their satisfaction is priority number one, because without my clients, I can’t do the job that I love.”

Sarah’s passion for her work and her clients is clear, but in her own words – she is a wife and mom first. Her family is the motivation behind everything she does, and they make her want to be the best and make them proud!
