Doug's inspiration

Sarah Rappolt Dickens, Director of Curriculum Development

Sarah has spent over 15 years as an esteemed NYC stylist and educator as well as an avid social entrepreneur.  She first brought her talent, enthusiasm and expertise to establish our very first salon solution and built the foundation upon which our beauty education stands.  Outside of being one of NYC’s best stylists, Sarah has taught in Africa, Cambodia and inner city NYC as she offers vocational beauty opportunities to young women who do not have the financial means or access to a proper education.

Sothearen, Salon Manager

Sothearen received her university degree from the Royal University of Phnom Penh where she studied business. After spending a few years working in the service industry, Sothearen decided she wanted to do more to help the distressed women in her country become more financially independent. That choice brought her to lead our team running the salon.

Torng Seav has over 10 years of hairdressing experience in Cambodia. She spent many years working in Battamabang before moving to Siem Reap and joining the Vimean Beauty+ Team.
