Sarah Rue48 Duluth Location

Sarah attended cosmetology school in the Twin Ports after moving to Duluth from the Canadian border. Sarah found inspiration in the beauty industry from spending time with her grandma who was a salon owner. That inspiration motivated Sarah to gain the skill and drive to learn everything she could. Sarah excels in haircutting and had a passion for spa serices. Along with her growing Aveda knowledge Sarah has trained at the International Dermal Instute to reign her skills. Being a versatile cosmetologist keeps Sarah excited about her days.

Dereck started his career in 2001 at the Aveda Institute - Minneapolis. After attending cosmetology school, he found his calling back in the Twin Ports, where he was able to grow with his loyal clientele. It was during this time that his passion for education brought him to Cosmetology Careers Unlimited. It was here that his ability to be in tune with the latest trends, as he serviced his loyal guests, became what he was known for.  His drive and excellence to grow his knowledge in hair brought him to the Sassoon academy in Santa Monica and his passion and commitment to skin care has given him close ties with the International Dermal Institute in Minneapolis.

Suzanne is excited to be part of the Rue 48 team and loves the relaxed welcoming vibe that it offers. She enjoys the flexibility of offering services in both the salon and spa. Suzanne’s thirst for knowledge has provided her with some amazing opportunities.
In 2014 she refined her hair cutting skills by attending advanced training at the Sassoon Academy, Chicago. On top of her exceptional cutting and coloring services, Suzanne’s true passion is skin care. Her skin care journey started in 2012 when she began learning and mastering Aveda’s facials, facial products and rituals. Due to her new-found passion and drive, she had the privilege of training with the former owner of Christal Center for Wellness. Her apprenticeship gave her the knowledge to carry on the signature healing skin treatments that were offered here in Canal Park. Suzanne’s specialized healing facial treatments address and nurture such issues as aging, pigmentation, and acne.
