I’m Sara Rieman, licensed Esthetician and the owner of Elevate Esthetics Parlor and Nuvo Beauty Collective. I assist my clients with elevating their natural beauty by providing them with exceptional skincare experiences in a peaceful, comfortable space.
As a service provider, I take the word “elevate” seriously. I believe that every client deserves professional, attentive, and friendly service in a relaxing, exceptionally clean and safe environment.
Taking Skin Care to the Next Level
From brows and body waxing to lashes and facials, I'll carefully listen to your concerns to ensure you receive attentive, detail-oriented service tailored to your individual needs.
Taking good care of our skin is as essential to our health as eating well and exercise. Educating clients about how to achieve healthy, glowing skin and seeing their skincare frustrations fade away is one of the most rewarding parts of my business.
Whether you are frustrated with hyper-pigmentation, age-related skin issues, breakouts, ingrown hairs or just hair in all the wrong places, I can help you determine the best way to address your concerns according to your lifestyle, commitment level and budget.
Exceptional Products & Services
Committed to providing state-of-the-art products and services, I stay up-to-date on the latest information and trends in the industry and look for innovative ways to serve clients. Check out one of my most unique (and most popular) services, the ZEN MEDITATION facial!
Elevated Facials & Body Waxing Expert
Prior to creating Elevate Esthetics Parlor, I was a licensed Esthetician and trainer at Beauty Brands. While there, I began traveling across the country training other Beauty Brands Estheticians on the art and science of exceptional service, hair removal, lashes and skin care treatments.
Over the years, thanks to my dedication to healthy skin care and my passion for education, I’ve evolved into an industry leader. In 2010, I was awarded Beauty Brands #1 Senior Esthetician in my region after only one year in the industry! In 2015, I was honored as Beauty Brands Trainer of the Year and was ranked among the Top Ten Beauty Brands Estheticians Nationwide each consecutive year between 2013-2017. When I left in October of 2018, before the official years end, I was ranked #3! Furthermore, in recent years, I was voted #1 in Hair Removal in Kansas City by Pitch magazine and earned the Runner Up spot for WAXING Best of Kansas City - Kansas City Magazine 2020!
Fast forward to current day, I recently opened Nuvo Beauty Collective in March of 2023 - in the quaint, historic district of Old Leawood, Kansas, to further challenge myself in providing an intimate elevated space for skin, hair, lashes and nails. All beauty professionals are independent, licensed and experts in their craft committed to the same like-minded level of upscale beauty and service.
Feed Your Soul, Beautiful
When I’m not working, I love to explore our beloved, progressive Kansas City with my husband Doug, and spend time with our "Brady Bunch" blended family! Although I grew up on a farm, it turns out I’m a city girl at heart. I adore this city! You’ll often find us dining at eclectic local eateries, attending special events around town, and following the local music scene— Doug even plays in bands!
Want to know my favorite beauty secret? If you feed your soul, your beauty shines through! I prioritize self-care rituals like regular facials and massage, meditation and exercise; hobbies like reading and decorating; and treating myself to coffee at one of the nearby cafes.
Book an appointment with me today! I can’t wait to help you feel your most beautiful!
