Logan was born and raised in Nashville. Since the beginning of her career in the beauty industry, she has taken a special interest in blowouts, styling, and makeup. She loves watching and learning from others and can’t wait to try out the next trend or beauty tool!

Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, Raychel is a motivated stylist that loves to continue her education on the newest trends. She is easy going and has a deep adoration for her husband, Kenny, her dog Norman, jazz music, coffee and fitness. She surrounds herself with others that have a passion for life. Feeling good inside and out is important to her and she loves to help others feel the same! Hair color is her art. Raychel specializes in hand painted dimensional, lived in colors and texturized haircuts. She loves working with her clients to achieve low maintenance styles with color that grow out beautiful. Her ultimate goal is to create wearable hair for each client – brunette, blonde, or anything in between.
Always experimenting with my my own outward appearance through hairstyles and fashion, as I grew older I began experimenting on others as well. It thrilled me to be entrusted to execute someone else’s vision of their appearance. Passions have a way of find us, sometimes, when we aren’t even looking. I take great pride in helping every person who sits with me to feel comfortable in sharing their vision with me, and turning those ideas into something tangible.
I have a passion for helping people express themselves through their look. I have been a stylist for ten years and could not be happier then when I am working my craft. In the last seven years in Nashville I have been proud to have my work on the red carpet, music videos and magazines. I specialize in texture, cutting and color. Whether it is a special event, audition or your every day look, I am happy to help you look your best!
