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.

Why Riah?
The team is Sarah’s favorite part about working at Riah. She likes coming to work and feeling like she’s working with family.

How would…
You describe yourself in one word? Ambitious.
Your friends describe you in one word? Good-Listener.

What’s your favorite technique to use on clients?
Balayage and special occasion styles are the most fun.

What are your hopes for your career over the next five years?
“My hopes are to be an elite stylist, or maybe a salon owner. I’d love to educate as well. I’ve done some updo classes and color class in the past–it’s something I really enjoy doing on the side.”

Favorite salon product?
Currently, it’s EVO: Whip it Good.

“It gives amazing volume without being too sticky, and allows for that lasting blowdry finish.”

It’s the perfect accessory to every blowdry. Stop by the salon to purchase, or give us a call at (215) 953-0622 to reserve one to take home from your next appointment!

Happy Friday!

About RIAH Hair Studio

How We Came to Be . . . RIAH Hair Studio In May 2011, the former Salon Rage of Southampton, Pennsylvania relocated to a new space and changed their name to RIAH Hair Studio. RIAH? (pronounced 'Rye-Ah') Yes, it's "hair" spelled in reverse. Donna originally established Salon RAGE in March 1999. The salon delivered comprehensive hair services to the surrounding communities. As a seasoned beauty industry professional for over 29 years, Donna believed in education, not only for her stylists, but for her clients as well. This prompted her to open this first salon where she could foster such a dynamic environment. After 10+ years in Southampton and a desire to move closer to her family, in 2011 she relocated her business to Furlong, Pennsylvania in the heart of Bucks County. Re-emerging as RIAH Hair Studio, Donna has created a modern, contemporary, urban loft design experience located on the corner of York Rd & Edison-Furlong Roads, at the Village Corner in Buckingham Township. RIAH Hair Studio is an intimate boutique salon that is relaxing, comfortable & social, providing the "Right Attitude" from the team resulting in a "Great Experience" for their clients. It's the "RAGE" she carefully develops to this day. The stylists are continually certified in the latest hair techniques (color, cut, design, styles, tools, products, and fashion trends). Their clients, female, male, young or mature, enjoy the benefits of this extensive training. Additionally, they are taught how to re-create and maintain their RIAH experience until the next appointment. It makes RIAH Hair Studio stand out as one of the most referred-to salons in Bucks County! When we have the opportunity to see you in our new space, we'll provide you with the "Right Attitude & Great Experience" as we have always strived to do. Happy Day! from Donna & the Team at RIAH Hair Studio View all posts by RIAH Hair Studio
