Your hair should be a reflection of you and ongoing communication is essential for that. Really listening and building lasting relationships is the best way to find the most suitable way to bring out the best in a client's hair.
Voted Best Hair Color by InStyle and Chicago Magazine
Delivering a good service to a client and seeing them happy is gratifying every single time.
She did a great job. She spent time talking with me and finding out what I wanted in a haircut as well as recommend what she thought would look good. She did an awesome job. I will be continuing to schedule my hair appointments with Rachel.
I’ve been looking for a stylist who will listen but also have ideas for me and help me figure out what looks good. Rachel took the time to listen to me and did not rush. I wasn’t sure how to explain exactly what I wanted but when my hair was finished it was exactly what I hoped for!! I also really liked the private studio atmosphere with no distractions. I will be returning!
I like to take the time to get acquainted with a new client to know his or her lifestyle, line of work, and style inspirations. It also important to discuss maintenance and set up the proper expectations. My role is not simply to deliver a cut or color, but to listen to the client and guide them with my experience so that they can get the most out of their service.
I have been working in the industry as a stylist and an educator of other stylists for over 15 years. I’ve trained at multiple academies such as Sassoon and L’Oreal Professional and have worked along side many renound industry professionals from all over the US and the world. I work with the most recent color trends as well as the tried and true techniques that I have perfected over my years of doing hair for a living.
I believe in fair and competative pricing to help people get the most value out of their service. My tiered pricing accounts for the amount of time and level of detailing. A blow dry is included in the cost of your hair services because it is part of the process, especially for the cut. When getting multiple services at the same time I am able to offer a combo-price and it is a better value for the client.
When I was in college studying film and photography I realized I had a natural “knack” for hair. I began intuitively and decided to persue a career. The opportunities in this industry to work for different companies and to grow my own indépendant business are very rewarding.
I have worked with a wide range clients from many backgrounds: working professionals, artists, homemakers, brides and retirees. I also have also worked with professional models in runway and fashion photography. The common thread among all of these clients is that communication is of the utmost importance, no matter who is sitting in the chair.
Feel like the stylist is knowledgeable and that you are comfortable communicating your needs. A good stylist listens and takes all feedback to heart. You pay good money for a good service and should keep an ongoing dialogue between stylist and client.
