CREATIVE DIRECTOR + OWNER
SPECIALIZES IN BLONDES, BALAYAGE, & HAND-TIED EXTENSIONS
Rachel comes from 3 generations of cosmetologists, you could say her love of making others feel and look more beautiful runs in her veins as well as the family. Her great-grandmother the late Rachel "Raye" Curlee was a successful and talented beautician back in her day. From modeling, owning and operating her own salons, to teaching her own curriculum "The Curlee System" at beauty schools across Texas, Ms. Curlee certainly knew her way around the beauty business. Passing her skills and love for the trade down to her grand-daughter Hope an extraordinary Medical Aesthetician with over 20 years experience and then down to her great-grand daughter and name sake Rachel, it had to have been her destiny that the beauty industry was where she would find herself.
"Making others look & feel beautiful is my passion. I feel very blessed to be a part of the greatest industry in the world. This industry is ever-changing and there are always new and exciting things to learn and share with my clientele. Hair and make up allows me to express my creativity and also make each and every client who sits in my chair not only feel beautiful, but special too. I love that nothing I create can be duplicated by anyone else, it is my one of a kind work of art and I am the artist. I have two beautiful children, Kenzie & Evan. They inspire me everyday to be the best I can be and motivate me to work hard, be kind and leave them a legacy.
