I started doing hair almost ten years ago in Tampa, Florida and then got an opportunity to work at an advanced Aveda academy in Denver, CO. During this time, I continued perfecting my color and cutting skills by working with new guests and taking as many Aveda classes as possible. New color techniques, like balayage, have become favorites for giving guests color that looks good while growing out naturally. Moving to Richmond has provided me with an opportunity to use my experience and training in a new city, with its own Southern style and charm!


BIT ABOUT ME My motto is C'est la vie! Because honestly, sometimes you have to roll with the punches and I always enjoy listening, learning and meeting new guests!

she was super friendly and did an amazing job giving my hair volume

Rachel was very concerned about what I needed in a haircut. Her suggestions were great and she explained it well to me. Haven't had a chance to wash and blow dry myself, but from what I see it will be what I was looking for. She was insistent that I return if there is anything that I am unhappy with and I appreciate that.

Rachel saved me from a bad haircut just in time for my daughter's baptism weekend. I came in with a poor cut from another salon and Rachel took the time to really understand what I was unhappy about with the cut and what I had been hoping for. She more than delivered! I feel so much better and beyond getting a great cut, I really enjoyed meeting her. I wish I lived in town (I'm here visiting my parents) because I would rebook with her in a second!

I really enjoy both my color and haircut. Rachel was very pleasant and conscientious. She was very precise in giving me my desired style. She did a great job in choosing the correct products which worked well with my cut. I love the messy look as I played with it after I got home. See you soon! Thank you Rachel!

I have never been disappointed with my Mango experience. I typically see Ashley Laumer who is fantastic; I had to reschedule my regular appointment with Ashley because my daughter is going away to college on the day of my appointment. I was fortunate enough to see Rachel who is simply a lovely human being as well as an exceptional hair stylist. Rachel immediately understood the direction I am headed "embracing my gray" and made my hair color more beautiful than I expected going in. She achieved a perfect ash blonde, champagne color fading up to my white gray! She also suggested a cut that I JUST LOVE- and would have never thought of. I really appreciated her suggestions and professional knowledge...and the excellent conversation! Now, my problem is...which of the fantastic stylists will I go to next.
