About Us

Our Story

Owner and founder Sarah Pulley had a few career changes before finally landing in the Beauty Industry. After graduating from Ball State University (Go Cardinals!) Sarah tried social work and even nursing school – but nothing seemed like the right “fit” for her. 

She knew she wanted to take care of people in some capacity, so she decided to combine that with her love of doing hair into a full time career. 

Sarah went to the Aveda Frederic’s Institute (AFI) and instantly realized her goal was to own her own salon!

After graduating, Sarah worked at a local salon where she perfected her techniques, started to build relationships with her clients, and grew her leadership skills. 

It was during this time that she recognized her passion for training and mentoring new stylists which is a key component of Three Seventeen Hair Design to this day.

In order to make her salon ownership dream a reality she transitioned to Salon Lofts in February of 2017. It was there that she began running her own business and became lifelong friends with fellow stylists Makenzie and Amy. 

In June of 2018, with Makenzie and Amy at her side, Sarah took a huge leap of faith and opened the current location of Three Seventeen Hair Design, which has been operational ever since.

My husband and I both go to Makenzie and love both her and the salon! She is a great stylist, helps with any indecision we may have and is a delight to chat with. The salon is very clean and also has great products that are affordable. Highly recommend!

Our Name

Deciding on a salon name is always a big decision! Thankfully, with the HUGE support of her husband Adam, Sarah chose the name “Three Seventeen Hair Design” for two reasons.

The obvious answer? Area code 317 of course!

Showing some love for an area that has provided so much growth and support for Sarah was a no-brainer.

The not so obvious answer? A Bible verse from the book of Zephaniah chapter 3 verse 17 (NIV).

It states, “The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Thus became the name of a salon where stylists take great delight in their guests and provide extraordinary hair care for the people living in the area! 

Client Love
