I'm Sarah!


I've had a passion for art my entire life. As far back as I can remember I've loved art in every form, and did it in every medium I could get my hands on.


When I went to college, I knew art was the only path I would ever want. I did two years of art college before realizing a degree wasn't going to get me any closer to my dream of living as a full time artist.


I shared with my hair dresser at the time how I was struggling with finding a new path, and she asked me if I had ever considered doing hair. She pointed me in a new direction and gave me a new start.


 I graduated beauty school in 2019 and began my art career in a field I had never expected, and one that I love very much.


It is no surprise to anyone who knows me that chose to specialize in vivids. I love transforming the hair into beautiful and wild colors. 


My clients always come to me with the most amazing and creative ideas, and I love bringing them to life so that their hair can match their vibrant personalities. 


It is so important to me that my clients feel safe and confident in my chair. I want you to look and feel your very best!


When I am not behind the chair I am busy spending time with my beloved dog Daisy and my partner Justin. We love to hike all over Northern California or spend the day at the beach. I also still do all the other kinds of art that I have always loved doing and always have some kind of project in the works.

Hourly Rate $120                      Sunday, Monday, Thursday, Saturday

Hey Hair Bestie!


I’m Cheyenne!


I’m originally from a small town of under 500 people in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. After visiting my sister in the Bay Area in 2016 for the summer, I spontaneously decided to make California my new home. The people closest to me would describe me as a fun, caring, self-aware, goofy, and encouraging person. 


Keeping your natural hair healthy is my number one priority. Whether that be by growing out your hair by wearing extensions, or doing multiple lightening sessions to reach your goal, your hair health is always number one. I have very fine hair naturally, and I understand how to treat finer, lower density hair types through my year-long training I went through with Erin in 2022. 


My favorite services to perform are hair transformations. I love giving someone an immediate change with hair extensions or major color work. If you want something completely different from what you currently have, I’m your girl! I love lightening all hair types and levels, as each level needs specific guidelines in order to achieve a flawless look. When it comes to cutting hair, I love creating more alternative styles like shags, mullets, and heavy layers. I believe in letting your personality shine through your hair!


When I’m not in the salon, I love punching my stress away at Title Boxing in Sacramento, or taking on a new DIY home project. My typical night in with my partner Noah always involves some type of funny action movie and yummy sushi or Mexican food. 

Hourly Rate $80                                Tuesday, Friday, Saturday

I'm Erin, owner of Obsidian Hair Studio. I specialize in:​

  • Hair Extensions for Fine Hair

  • Efficient Luxury Hair Color


I love creating beautiful hair that works in your lifestyle, and helping you solve your hair and scalp problems. 

I started doing hair in 2015 and I opened the salon in 2021. At home I have my partner & husband, our son, and one silly pit bull. 

After getting my degree in Sociology from Chico State in 2006, I had two failed attempts at graduate school that led me to an unfulfilling corporate management career. In 2013, I decided not only to marry my best friend but start hair school at night. 

I feel fortunate to live, work, and raise my little in such a wonderful community and am excited to shake up the salon world with our slice of hair heaven!

Hourly Rate $175                      Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
