Roots Salon ABQ Sara Bassett

Owner / Hairstylist

After moving to New York City from New Mexico, I did my best to learn as much as I could in my industry. I specialized in Curly Hair at Ouidad flagship salon in Manhattan, and then I did high end men’s cuts at Fleischman’s a men’s salon. I also worked in fashion week and did editorial work for print and television. I really wanted to return to New Mexico and create a NYC style salon in Nob Hill Albuquerque. For me, it is important that we match your hairstyle to your lifestyle, to create the best look for you. Every appointment includes a thorough consultation where I really listen to all of your questions and concerns. My clients often comment on the longevity of their haircuts and how their hair looks good even it’s growing out.  I love creating a relaxed experience, really listening to my clients and discussing all of their needs. All that and a wonderful head massage, will keep you coming back.

Chloe completed cosmetology school at Arrojo in New York City. After School, she apprenticed at Ouidad flagship salon in Manhattan. During her time in NYC, Chloe also did editorial work with Arrojo Underground, Ouidad and ECRU New York.
Chloe straightened her hair for most of her life, until she went to cosmetology school in Manhattan where she was delighted to have her first haircut for curly hair. She could not believe how easy it was to do and that she was no longer a slave to the flat iron. This is what lead her to seek out a hair salon that specializes in curly hair. Chloe’s passion is showing people how good their hair can look naturally curly!
