Sara Willhoft, hair stylist, Ferndale
Sara's style is part prepster, part indie rock star. We stopped the Ferndale native and hair stylist to talk geek chic versus fashions of the '90s.

Have you always been geek chic?
It's something I've always had going on — kind of ‘80s librarian mixed with rocker. I think it just came from wanting to look unique.

What's more important to you: comfort or style?
I think it's optimal for it to work together. I tend to wear, as far as shoes go, something that would be more comfortable as opposed to something that's fun to look at it.

You're a hairstylist. How do you settle on one look?
My hair's been every color under the sun, but I've found that blonde works the best for me.

What are your style pet peeves?
The late '90s styles that are coming back. I saw a picture of rainbow platform tennis shoes in a catalogue recently, which was the worst shoe I've ever seen. The late '90s stuff is kind of like raver clothing. Not me at all.
