Hi! I’m Rachel and I have been an advanced hair cutting and styling specialist for 28 years, specializing in working with natural and alternative hair. To tell you a little more about how I came to be a specialist in these areas, I am continually receiving advanced education and training with top industry leaders. Knowledge is powerful and helps me to offer more to my clients and helps me to grow as a person. I have had the pleasure of leading a varied and successful career specializing in Advanced Hair Cutting, Styling, Wig and Hair Pieces. I have worked in salons, theater, hair and fashion shows, fashion photography shoots and have had my work showcased in industry publications. Because of this experience I have become a diverse professional. Adding my personal experience with hair loss,, has guided me into yet another specialty as a Hair Loss Specialist and Coach.
Having firsthand knowledge of the needs of a woman experiencing hair loss, I am able to support, offer resources, knowledge and assistance in helping you through the hair loss process. I have varied knowledge in assisting you to find the perfect option to feel comfortable and confident about how you look.
I help to narrow down the overwhelming process of finding the right hair piece, understanding what to do and how it all works, along with offering customization by cutting, thinning, modifying style, and fit to tailor the piece for each person. My goal is to help you find options that you will look and feel good in and to find some peace with your hair.
I also offer personal and holistic health coaching, emotional support, and a deep understanding of the hair loss process in a private environment. Additional services of Reiki, Meditation and Yoga are offered to assist in the healing and acceptance of the process of hair loss. I am a Certified Yoga Instructor, an Advanced Holistic Nutrition and Health Coach, and a Reiki Practitioner. I am able to support and guide you in a variety of ways to assist you in healing and to go through the process of losing hair with more ease from a holistic viewpoint.
In my career, I have had the privilege to work as a member of the NAAF (National Alopecia Areata Foundation) Legislative Liaison Team, as a hairloss and Alopecia support group leader, and a member of the Lead Council and a “Look Good, Feel Better” facilitator with the American Cancer Society. I teach classes at local Beauty Colleges to educate other stylists on the basics of working with wigs and toppers and how to assist a client experiencing hair loss. All of these experiences enhance my ability to provide more knowledge and resources to my clients. I am so grateful to be able to do this work and be here for you!
