Famous tresses that she has tended?

Charlize Theron – she always stays within the blonde cycle.  A light, pale blonde. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s another one.  I’ve been doing Jaimie Murray’s hair for some time (British actress starred in Hustle and Dexter now in a new US TV show).

Upcoming trends?

“We are going to see a lot more sun-kissed beach looks.  Dark roots getting lighter three inches away and ending in light highlights. Oh and a lot of people will be wanting to go red.  The trick is finding the right red and the right blonde.”

Rachel seems to be able to create a palette that’s more extensive than a Rembrandt and is celebrated for keeping the condition of the hair as luscious as possible.  “I make sure I use the best products and it’s ultimately just about watching the hair as it processes and caring” she says.

Worst mistake a colourist can make?

“Pulling the colour through to the ends.  It damages the hair and makes it look flat and inky.  It’s important to match the colour properly.”

I feel like I’ve had a lifetime of colourists who were blind  before Rachel.

Rachel’s plans and dreams?  “I want to build a clientele of people, not necessarily famous ones, and really learn about them.  I love this salon and I love to care for hair.”
