Introducing Sarah Olson: Nail Extraordinaire

We are pleased to introduce the newest member of our team, Sarah Olson, licensed manicurist. With Sarah’s bubbly personality and expert skill we know you’ll be pleased you met her too!

Sarah graduated from Martin’s College of Cosmetology in Madison in February of 2007. After working as a nail technician at Sundara Inn and Spa in Wisconsin Dells for three and a half years, a recent move located Sarah in the Green Bay area. We are so happy she found Haven.

After retiring as a massage therapist Sarah knew she wanted to stay in the industry and returned to school to become a nail technician. She found the nail world is much better suited to her personality and passion. Sarah says she loves doing nails because “It gives me a chance to be creative.”  Sarah continues to explain why nails are the perfect fit for her: “Getting your nails done is not just a manicure for my guests, it’s an opportunity to relax while enjoying a good conversation.” Sarah is a people person, she loves coming to an energizing environment every day where she can be social and pamper others.

Sarah’s specialties are pedicures and extended wear manicures. She is trained in a variety of products including Aveda and OPI gelcolor. Along with Sarah’s love for the beauty industry because of it’s ever changing trends, Sarah is a fashionista and stiletto shoe addict. Admitting to owning over 50 pairs, Sarah confesses that she can’t say no to any stiletto from Candies or Steve Madden. Her favorite pair: sassy slingbacks that are pink with rose-gold glitter.

Sarah is excited to be at Haven. Our team based company and positive environment is a great match for her. “Who doesn’t want to come to work everyday eager to see her friends, reconnect with guests, and meet new people? I know I do!” Sarah says.

To schedule a manicure or pedicure with Sarah or any of our other stylists call Haven at (920)339-1111.


Aveda’s new stress-fix aromaology is exactly what you need if you’re finding that daily stresses are taking over your life. Read what Aveda has to say about their new stress-fix line:

Stress can really take its toll on your physical, emotional and spiritual health. At Aveda, we turn to Ayurveda, a 5,000 year-old healing tradition from India, and western science to find 21st century solutions for the stress we experience every day.  Both teach us that the power of touch, breath and aromaology can be combined to create quick and easy wellness rituals you can do at home to give yourself the mental, physical and emotional break your body needs.

Stress-fixTM body lotion, concentrate and soaking salts are all Ecocert certified organic. Their aroma, infused with French lavender, lavandin and clary sage from organic farms, is clinically proven to relieve feelings of stress.

At Haven we offer 3 stress-fix products: stress-fix body lotion, stress-fix concentrate, and stress-fix soaking salts. The body lotion is perfect for those who type often or have other repetitive hand movements during the day. The concentrate  comes in a portable roller-ball so you can carry it with you and relieve stress at any time of the day. The soaking salts were made for rejuvenating baths. Light an Aveda candle and let the soaking salts get to work!

We also offer a stress-fix body massage, which is clinically proven to reduce feelings of stress. Haven’s Spa Manager, Diana Klevesahl, likes how the techniques used in the stress fix massage allows for deeper work to be done especially in the rotator cuff and spine area. Also, these massage techniques use the pressure point triggers to find relaxation through the head, neck, and face. Diana says,

The combination of the lavender, clary sage, and frankincense aromas soothe the body so  the massage can strip the muscles of stress and leave you feeling fully rejuvenated.

Do you want to experience life stress free? Stop at Haven to pick up the stress-fix products and schedule your stress-fix massage to start your journey towards rejuvenation. We know you’ll be glad you did.
