Sam has been cutting hair since 2007. Through the years, she has received training from world renown stylists throughout the industry.
Men's cuts are a favorite of hers as well as detailed women's styles of all lengths. When a client is in Sam's chair, they know she cares; not only about their appearance but how they feel inside and out. She takes pride that people have the knowledge and inspiration to recreate their hairstyle at home.
Sam loves to make a difference in peoples lives; to create a workplace where stylists can show their individuality, freedom, and ownership of their craft. She enjoys specializing in cutting and collaborating with the Haven team to achieve the perfect look for each unique client. Learning new techniques and being inspired by other stylists keeps her enthralled in doing hair, and that is why training and continued education are so important to her.
Outside the salon, she loves working out, outdoor activities and getting together with family and friends. Sam is a huge animal lover.
Growing with the Haven team and clientele, seeing everyone enjoying life in and outside of "work" is her greatest reward.
Sam can't wait for the years to come and what the future will bring.

Working as a salon manager for the past three years allowed me to utilize my extensive business experience while developing my passion in the hair industry.
While at the salon, I realized I wanted to help customers and be more hands on. This desire gave me the drive to obtain my cosmetology license in May of 2021 and further my career.
I've always enjoyed coloring my hair and trying different cuts and styles. I know how rewarding it is when I experience a new look. I'm excited to give this joy to my clients, as I specialize in coloring and cuts. I look forward to helping clients feel beautiful, continuing my education, and growing as a stylist.
When not at the salon, I enjoy paper crafting, cooking and traveling with my husband.
