Ready to up your game when it comes to hair color? It’s time to connect with Mara DaPonte, owner of Sassy Beaches Salon & Spa. Mara became a certified Color Educator with the product line Schwazkopf after a two-year training and educational process that cumulated with earning her final certification in Los Angeles in May. Mara poses with some of the judges above. She knows how to customize color according to your skin tone and eye color to give you that personalized match best for you. Mara gave her first haircut at age 14 to her future husband (it must not have been too bad!) and attended cosmetology vocational training in high school. She knew this was the field for her from the very beginning. After graduation, she had the privilege of working with an Italian barber who taught her how to do a straight razor shave, a very difficult feat to master and salon management. Mara is from Rochester, NY and moved to Florida four years ago with her husband, Louis. She is passionate about animals and children. Three dogs call her Mom. She opened Sassy Beaches two years ago. As a full-service salon, Sassy Beaches specializes in hair color as well as haircuts, luxury manicures and pedicures, facials, body treatments, and relaxing massages. Suggestion: for your next pedicure, ask for the lavender jelly pedi that has anti-inflammatory properties. Mara considers herself a creative artist and keeps up to date with the innovative technology that Schwarzkopf provides for its stylists. She always had in the back of her mind that she would like to teach cosmetology and with her certification, she will be instructing hair stylists new to the Schwarzkopf product line. Her intention for Sassy Beaches is to continue the salon’s focus on maintaining an exceptional level of customer service and satisfaction.
