My name is Rachel, and I am a hair designer in the greater Rockford area. I graduated from the Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in October of 2013 with the drive to be the best stylist I can be. I am now working at Sanctuary Spa in Rockton, and I am overjoyed to join their family! This industry is not just a “career” but an art! My top priority is learning to customize each look for my guests, so that they leave my chair feeling like the best possible version of themselves. My passion is hair cutting, but I take pride in all my work! I’m young, but I do not see that as a disadvantage. I have more time to learn, and grow, and change as the trends change. Education is vital to developing myself as a stylist, and I’m very eager to learn, as well as teach my clients to obtain a wearable everyday hair style. This blog was created for you, the guest, so that you may have an inside look at my growth in this industry. You can learn new techniques, just as I am, and find motivation and inspiration! I’m taking this journey day by day, and focusing my creative energy on what is before me. The only thing I ask of you is to take the journey with me!
