Meet the Team
Sara is the owner and visionary behind the Lounge. Having success owning Snips and Giggles for the past 16 years and building the clientele of the Lounge within the current Snips and Giggles, Sara felt the call to take on an educating role. While focusing on creating an environment for new salon professionals to learn their trade and grow their professionalism and clientele the idea of The Lounge was born. . The Lounge by Snips moved into its own space in downtown Oconomowoc, where Sara hired and continues to mentor her team of young stylists and an esthetician.
Sara has over 20 years experience in styling hair. She enjoys helping the busy mom simplify her day and relax in the chair. She has grown her businesses in the Oconomowoc community, while being a devoted wife and mother to three. Next time you're in, ask Sara what's she been cooking up in her kitchen, as she loves to cook and entertain for her family and friends.
Vanessa can be found cutting hair at Snips and Giggles and The Lounge. She loves working with kids, bringing out their personalities through hair styling. Educating parents and tweens and teens on proper hair care and styling post-salon is her specialty, while doing event styles for prom, dance recitals, and weddings are her passion. The Lounge is so excited Vanessa moved to Lake Country from Alabama and now calls Wisconsin her home.
Liv is the Lounge's in-house esthetician. She is a homegrown Lake Country native, graduating from Arrowhead High School and VICI Beauty School. She enjoys educating and guiding her clients on how to properly take care of their skin, while making them feel beautiful in the process. Next time you're in, ask her how about weightlifting. (Do it!)
