Rebecca Weier

Level 2 Stylist

I’m a 2014 graduate of Faust Institute of Cosmetology in Storm Lake. Prior to this, I grew up near Alta & received my AA degree in Human Services from ICCC in Fort Dodge. While there, I discovered my passion while fixing my teammates hair before cheer competitions and had an epiphany to become a cosmetologist. I have a knack for creativity and enjoy making people look and feel great. I live in Sutherland with my hubby, Zach.

Sarah Smith

Esthetician, Permanent Makeup Artist, Brow & Lash Specialist

Makeup has always been a fun way to be creative. I love how just by doing someone’s makeup I can change their whole perspective: by helping them feel beautiful while bringing their inner beauty out. I fell in love with what makeup could do from age three watching my aunt put on her makeup every morning, she was a makeup artist, as well. When I graduated high school, I decided to go to esthetics school to learn more about what I was putting the makeup on. Skin care and makeup are my passion, that passion grew to loving brows as well. I’m a brow artist, makeup/permanent makeup artist and skin care specialist!

Massage therapy is something I wanted to do for a long time and I have been practicing for about three years. I enjoy hearing the benefits it gives people and improving their life style. I joined Sunjara Salon in May 2018 and I am glad for the opportunity to learn, grow and be a better therapist, along with my amazing tribe! Trying new things, going to different places, and meeting new people is what I enjoy the most about life.
