Mother, Artist & Healer
I was drawn to hair at an early age, always trying different haircuts and colors to express how I was feeling internally. However it took me many years to finally make a career out of it. Forever grateful for that random craigslist job posting of a 'shampoo assistant needed' and Jack Ray of Samuel Cole Salon for seeing something with in me.
I received my formal training from AVEDA in Chapel Hill which opened many doors for me in the industry. I quickly excelled, so much so I ended up being a Beacon Winner - a nationwide competition for cosmetology students. From that even more doors opened and I was lucky enough to learn from many of my hair idols. After graduating school I found myself always working in education focused salons. My last commission salon experience helped push me to my goal of becoming a Kevin Murphy Session Stylist but also that same salon showed me everything I was not fond of being in the beauty industry.
I never felt truly comfortable or content working or being serviced within a 'salon' atmosphere for many reasons. Grateful for the experience as well as perspective. For me its about human connection and removing the superficial and toxic beauty standards. I still continue my industry education and most recently working for myself in a shared space studio in Boylan Heights. I love being able to control my atmosphere and hold space for individuals that trust me to aid them in their creative hair endeavors.
I do feel as if my practice is ever evolving and I'm finding myself drawn to make our experience together more than just an external change ~ I hope to also guide you in internal changes. Recently I received my Reiki 1 certification with Deborah Dixon of Duke Integrative Medicine. Working with your energy field as well as incorporating healing energy to your chakras into our session brings me the most joy. Reiki is life, Reiki is love. Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. However I am very respectful and will not push anything on to you. Only if you are open to it.
*Rebeccah, Hair Healer is a one lady show.
On days she's not in the studio she is fulfilling other creative endeavors as well as being a mother to a little one. She can not guarantee a fast reply every time. She only communicates within my hours of operation. Thank you for your patience!*
