Staff

The staff at Sara’s Hair Etcetera have two things in common—they are passionate about beauty and they love their clients. This hardworking group of happy women are all licensed professionals; each continues to broaden their depth of knowledge in hair, skin, and nails by attending workshops and educational programs.

But this is also a family-oriented business, run and staffed by Cape Cod locals. Don’t be surprised if a visit to Sara’s Hair Etcetera ends with you leaving with a native plant bulb from Judy’s garden or a sweet treat from a nearby bakery.

At Sara’s Hair Etcetera, you’re more than just another client—you’re a welcomed friend.
