The Cut Above Salon & Spa
Sara Lee was born in a small Wisconsin town when the leaves were changing color and the wind was crisp and full of beauty and wonder. As the years passed, a change was in her future and it brought her to Prescott Valley on Veterans Day 1994 where she raised her family. Sara attended cosmetology school in Phoenix and before completion, was pregnant with her daughter and unable to continue her education. After a five-year waiting period, she went back to school. Sara chose a different career path and was successful, but unfulfilled. Sara went back again to cosmetology school. While attending the Hair Nail and Skin Institute, Sara was surrounded by many people who encouraged her to graduate. Jill Hassen was a personal mentor and encouraged her to achieve her dreams. In 2015, a family member took their own life and this tragedy in Sara’s family was so devastating that she wanted to show her brother and herself she could own a salon. On Nov. 1, 2015, Sara purchased the oldest salon In Yavapai County, The Cut Above Salon & Spa. As Sara continued to grow, she wanted to offer a bigger variety to other stylists in the area and founded Captivation Studio Spa in August 2018. Sara used this platform to give a piece of herself to others. She takes the change in seasons to create a change in others. Her creativity and beauty is transformed from her fingertips to you, it’s who she is and touches all who are blessed to meet her. Friends share that she is an accomplished business woman and that she is a loving mother and wife, and in the words of Trace Adkins, she’s “one hot mamma.” Sara’s success comes from her husband and children. Without their support she would not be who she is today.
