Rachel has been with the Therapy team for six months and has flourished as an apprentice under Suli. A Baton Rouge native, she graduated with a Marketing degree from Louisiana State University in 2013.
Upon graduating, she decided to move to Houston in order to pursue her dream of becoming a hairstylist—something she had wanted to do since she was 15 years old and was introduced to the career possibility by her grandmother, who has been styling hair since 1954.
Rachel went on to attend the Aveda Institute of Houston where she excelled and was the proud recipient of Aveda’s Edwin Neil Full Potential Award, a distinction endowed upon Aveda students across the country who excel in hair styling and makeup.
Rachel is also a Beacon Award recipient, a distinction that only about 100 out of 1,500 contest participants earn during the annual Professional Beauty Association’s Beauty Week.
Just before graduating from the Aveda Institute of Houston, Rachel was given the opportunity to begin working with Therapy Hair Studio. As an apprentice, she continues to prove that she has the dedication and skills to excel as a hair stylist and has been a welcome contribution to the Therapy team.
Looking for an effortless, beachy look that can carry you from a work lunch to an evening out with friends or significant other? Wish you knew how to throw together that “I Woke Up Like This” look, without spending hours in front of the mirror? Well, good news: in this post we’re going to tell you just how to get it.
David created our model’s lovely waves using Kevin Murphy’s Anti Gravity Gel and Spray. Each lock of hair was curled with a one-inch rod and then set in the Kevin.Murphy rollers to cool. The hair was then heavily back brushed and smoothed over which created the loose curls shown in this picture.
Beautiful, right? You can even pair it with a floppy hat and a pair of casual but dangly earrings, to hit the “effortlessly beautiful” mark, effortlessly.
Let’s not forget the makeup, of course. Jahan uses Therapy’s Addiction line of cosmetics and created an elegant palette that focuses on nudes and peaches to complement our model’s skin tone and sandy hair.
She used Fiji bronzer for a natural glow and created the perfect smokey eye with our Serene eye shadow duo. The lips, which look done up even though they don’t have much color to them, showcase our Naked Lip Liner and Burlesque Pink lip stain and was finished off with Luxury Couture Lip Gloss in Nude Nature. The result is a look that can easily transition from daytime to night.
Now all that’s left is to complement the hair and makeup with a few effortless touches. Take a cue from our model and throw on a loose white shirt with a snakeskin bag, and you’re good to go.
