Sadie loves the art and science of hair color. “The chemistry behind hair color fascinates me,” she says. She travels to Los Angeles often for the American Board Certified Hair Color Summit, during which the “best hair color educators and hair color chemists provide hair color education that is raising the bar for our industry!”
Sadie brings all of her knowledge home to Urban Village, where she solves her clients’ hair-color challenges and selects the best shades for skin tone. Sadie’s expertise is a reason Urban Village was voted one of the top five salons in the Twin Cities by readers of City Pages. “It says so much about our dedicated clients—their loyalty and support—and the continued referrals we receive,” Sadie says. “I’m so grateful!”
In the hair industry since 1998, Sadie has also developed a specialty in hair extensions. She’s certified in four extension methods: Great Lengths & Hair Dreams, Platinum Seamless/Easi Lengths, Iloc Extensions and Halo Hair Extensions. “I use them to give hair extra length, body and fullness, or for a fun splash of color,” Sadie says.
“There’s a lot of bright color in hair now, and the best way to get these bright colors, while maintaining the hair’s integrity, is to use hair extensions.” She’s also discovered a new temporary extension brand, Halo Couture, “which is a great option for those who currently have or are interested in clip-ins.”
Sadie is also an expert in the Coppola Keratin Treatment. “It transforms frizzy dull hair for 3-5 months, cuts your styling time down one third, reduces bulk associated with frizz and adds incredible shine,” she says. Always on the lookout for the best in new products and techniques, Sadie continually advances her education with classes and conferences, including the Advanced Aveda Academy in London, Vidal Sassoon, Yosh Toya, Serious Business, Beth Menardi and Tom Dispenza.
Sadie has also been a colorist for Twin Cities Fox 9 TV’s “Makeover Monday” and for the national television show “Ambush Makeover.” She worked behind the scenes at the North American Hairstyling Awards hair show and did photo work with a Salon in Atlanta. Ever in pursuit of personal development, she’s taken multiple courses through Landmark Education.
Sadie is married and the mother of four children: three girls and a boy. When she’s not working, Sadie gardens and enjoys spending time with her growing family.
