Life and Work with Sara Seifert

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sara Seifert.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Sara. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I always wanted to do hair ever since I was a little girl. But things kept getting in the way. When I was 32, I finally started cosmetology school and graduated the next year. I am married and I have two small children, so going to school at night was not easy but I’m proud of myself for doing it. It started off in a salon in Kensington and moved to Millicent and Company in La Mesa in the summer of 2017.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s very hard being a working mom but I think they are what make it worth it. They really push me to work harder and be the best that I can possibly be. Since I love what I do, I never feel like I’m working, so I would recommend doing something you enjoy with everybody.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Hair by Sara Seifert – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I’ve been doing a lot of weddings, which I really enjoy. I love working with brides and being a small part of their special day. In the salon, I love doing color, especially blondes.

Do you think there are structural or other barriers impeding the emergence of more female leaders?
I really think women just need to support each other more and not see each other as a threat. If one of us succeeds, we all succeed.
