We had the good fortune of connecting with Sadie Marquez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sadie, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important item that impacted our success was saying yes! We truly believe that our customers have a choice and we are great full to have them. We believe in saying yes. Can we accommodate them, yes. Can we repair their hair, yes. The customer is made to fell taken care of, listened to and receive excellent service.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We began many decades ago! As with any craft, excellent training makes the path much easier. The hairdressing industry offers many roads. WE found ourselves on many. Hair for TV commercials, magazines, teaching other professionals, representing a product line, creating a product line and opening a salon. The path was not easy, being prepared and saying yes is a wonderful philosophy. We have learned many lessons along the way. Be diplomatic, be open minded and be gracious.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
The Desert Botanical Gardens Hike Camelback Mountain The Sanctuary for breakfast. Phoenix Art Museum Spa Day at The Camelback Inn Carolinas for Mexican food Durants for a pampered dinner old school style Shopping at Last Chance digging for treasure LGO for salads A drive to Sedona seeing the face of someone who sees those Red Rocks for the first time!
