Sarah McGinnis started her career as a professional actor at the young age of 4. She discovered her passion for hair and make-up while attending the prestigious Conservatory at The Chicago Center for the Performing Arts, where she assisted the make-up team creating complex looks.

Later, while attending the Theatre School at DePaul University, Sarah made the decision to dedicate her career to the art of beauty. After completing 2000 hours of education and and receiving her cosmetology license, Sarah attended the Paul Mitchell School- Chicago for her advanced degree in cosmetology. It was there that her talent caught the eye of the Global Artistic Director of Paul Mitchell, Robert Cromeans. She earned her spot as her assistant, and it was then that her passion for out of the box color techniques was found. After becoming a National Educator for the company, Sarah honed her skills in precision cutting and her expertise in curly hair.

in 2010, Sarah decided it was time to open her own salon. By March of 2012, Pin Curls opened in the up and coming neighborhood of West Town in Chicago. in 2012, Pin Curls was named Best Salon in Chicago by Daily Candy and in 2013 was awarded Top 20 Best Salons from Salon Today Magazine.

After becoming a National Educator and Color Trainer for several other companies, Sarah realized she was still missing something in her career. She wanted a hair world where hair products made hair healthier, where hairstylists were actually working together instead of competing with one another, and hair products were actually environmentally conscious and science was the key to beautiful hair. That is when she found Z.One Concept. She brought in the Z.One Concept culture and products and earned her way to becoming and National Educator with them and then a member of the prestigious Art Team for North America. To this day, becoming a member of the Z.One Concept Art Team has been one of the greatest honors of her life. 

Sarah continues to advance her skills by continuing to numerous classes and trainings. Her dream is to become a Global Platform Artist for Z.One Concept and help shape a new world for the beauty world and help take back the craft.
