Meet The Team
Sarah Lee Adams
After graduating from Paul Mitchell in 2008, Sarah started her career at Studio Urbane working under the platform artist Cynthia Roy. From there she moved to Fairfax, Virginia and managed the scheduling for a team of over 20 stylist. Later she moved back to Baton Rouge and worked as an assistant at Salon Boheme.
Sarah’s next life move took her to Atlanta. She went to work for a well-known salon in the Vinings area, Radius Salon. This is where she first was introduced to the Kérestase and Bumble & Bumble product lines. She joined the salon team in order to start the apprenticeship program and learn from the coloring specialist owner, Susan, and eventually settle into being a stylist there.
Two years later while lying on the beach in Florida for July 4th, Sarah felt like something was not right. After working at all of these different salons, she started to see what worked and what was not working, and what she did and did not like about each experience. She felt as though a combination of ethics, products, marketing, branding, and techniques from all of the different salons should be combined into one to make a perfect salon for her needs. When she has an idea, she runs with it, and two short weeks later on July 22, 2011, The Blonde Salon opened its doors.
Sarah broke off on her own to take everything she had learned, and to experiment with original ideas. in order to get their hair to be the best that it can be. To Sarah, integrity of the hair is the most important thing when coloring, cutting, or even styling a client’s hair. Her appointments always include a thorough consultation in the suites relaxed atmosphere. She will explain to you the process she uses and why, which provides the clients the ability to know exactly what you are getting and feel confident that your hair is in caring hands.
With a passion for delivering a shiny, healthy natural looking color, Sarah delivers the best color for the client’s desired maintenance, skin tone, and hair texture. Sarah loves blonde highlighting and cutting longer hair styles. With her own hair being naturally curly she also knows how to work well with curl. Her talent in education, and passion for the product line she uses, has gained her the distinctive honor of being a ColorProof Education Specialist. This was an opportunity that she graciously accepted and trained for in Philadelphia. It allowed her to bring back to The Blonde Salon, critical insight of proper product use at the highest caliber.
Although she loves to educate others, she still enjoys and believes firmly in continued education. She has attended Premiere in Birmingham four times, Paul Mitchell Caper, Razor Cutting by Nick Arrojo, ColorProof Envoy Training, Keratin Complex Certification, Peter Coppola Training, Wahl Clipper Classes, Evalash Eyelash Certification, ColorProof Artistic Specialist Training, and many Schwartzkopf seminars just to name a few.
