We can’t wait for you to learn more about beautiful, talented, outgoing Sarah!
Sarah LaPorta has been at Riah for almost 8 years, but knew she first wanted to do hair when she was a little girl. She spent all of her time growing up braiding, styling, perming, and dying friends’ hair (although as a teenager, Sarah admit she didn’t always know what she was doing). Hard to believe now seeing what skill and precision she puts into her work as a Master Stylist.
In high school, Sarah was a client at the previous location, Salon Rage, where she was encouraged to apply and work during her summer break from college. At the time, she was in nursing school at temple, but after working at the salon as a receptionist and then a stylist assistant/shampoo team member, she realized that becoming a stylist was truly the right fit for her. She began her journey down that path in 2010, officially becoming a stylist after graduating from Empire Beauty School.
