So - most women have a hair horror story - I have definitely had my share. The latest one was letting a friend do my hair 48 hours before leaving town for one of the most important events in my career. Dropped over $150 on horrible, unhealthy bleach and my hair was so bizarre even my guy said "WTF is wrong with your head?" when I came home. You know it's bad when a man says something about your hair.
I had a postcard from Rachael that I had picked up a friend's local shop and that night in last minute panic and desperation, I emailed her with the subject title "Hair 911" She emailed back, while on her way home from vacation and said she would see me the next day - which btw, was a Monday and .004% of salons are actually open on Monday. Knowing I was leaving Tuesday morning for San Fran, I could not believe my luck. I even got an email from a friend that gave me the contact info for her said 'if anyone can fix your hair, it's her."
She uses all organic products (AWESOME!), all healthy stuff for your hair and will consult until she knows it's going to be right.
Not only did she fix my hair (she even said WTF? when she saw it!), my hair is the best it's ever been (the man even said that same thing the other day and she did my hair over a month ago).
I have crazy curly hair - which is one of her specialities - and I am never, ever going anywhere else but to her. Even if I have to fly cross country to do so. I have lived in many cities and every time I move, I have had those hair nightmares trying to find someone else.
On the personal side, she is also very cool, very personable, made me feel at ease and at home in her home (her studio is there) and I swear I have never, ever been so amazed at how someone could not only fix a disaster like what was on my head, but also how amazing my hair has been since then.
I am pretty sure she used a combination of organic Pixie Dust and Unicorn Rainbows because it came out amazing.
She is my Hair Angel.
I found Rachel by Googling "curly hair salons in Baltimore" and it was the best thing that has ever happened to my hair! After I read the outstanding reviews she received on Citysearch and Yelp, I immediately scheduled an appointment. As soon as I walked in to her studio I knew she was everything I wanted in a hair stylist. She is warm, friendly, and listened to what I wanted to do, not to mention she has curls of her own, which was very comforting to me. My hair is very naturally curly and was mid-back length when I saw her and that day she made my dreams come true by cutting my hair shorter than I'd ever cut it before- almost a pixie cut. She asked me all of the appropriate questions before chopping my mop off (Was everything okay in my life, etc) to make sure I wasn't having a quarter life crisis and taking it out on my hair! I am absolutely in love with my short cut and as long as I am in Baltimore, Rachel will be the only person who cuts my curls!
Every curly girl should have their own Rachel Epstein! – Rachel is an artist. She started the popular salon Sprout and has now moved on to her next venture. I came from a popular Divacurl certified salon after reading a review, and she gave me the bangs, in spite of my curly hair, I've been wanting for years. Overall, best style I've ever had and much more affordable than the salon I came from. My search for the perfect stylist is over!
CURLY HAIR EXPERT!!! – RACHAEL EBSTEIN IS FANTASTIC WITH CURLY HAIR!My daughter is biracial so her hair is always thick and curly. She looked beautiful when Rachael was done. It has been so easy to manage since. I have to say that I love getting my hair done at Crafted too. The color is great. It lasts forever!
Wonderful Hair Stylist – The color is great and long lasting. This is the first time my skin did not break out from my hair being colored. Rachel is wonderful to work with and I will definately go back again.
thank you Jody.... i think I see you today? X
Just the TLC I needed – My hair looks great...and feels fantastic.
I've gotten several compliments from friends and strangers in the week since Rachael gave my hair some love. It's been a while since that happened!
My poor hair has suffered so much abuse over the years. You see, I've always wanted long, wild, mermaid-type hair when in fact I have the exact opposite (think newborn chick). Rachael worked with me to find a cut that compliments my overall style and works for my hair. Her gentle, confident manner led me to trust her completely and I couldn't be happier with the results.
The intimate setting of Crafted Hair Studio allowed Rachael to give me her undivided attention and I felt immediately relaxed once I was in her hands.
thank you for the sweet words.......... x Rachael
The best EVER! – I first came to Rachael when I moved to Baltimore from NYC in 2006. There have been a few unfortunate haircuts with others, but I always regretted them (some looked good initially, but they never grew in right). With Rachael, I'm guaranteed to have a haircut that works! I've never been happier with my hair (and I've gone to several, fancy / hip NYC salons in my time). Rachael is simply the best. I concur with everyone else: she's a truly gifted artist.
Your hair prayers will be answered! – Once Rachael does your hair you're never going to be satisfied with anybody else....She is an artist ....
I walk in open to what ever ideas she comes up with based on my personality, hair health, coloring, low maintence needs, face structure....and she never fails to make me feel totallly happy and beautiful.
If I wanted her to create the same style/color every time she would but, it's fun to be able to trust that she will bring out the best in me and keep it fresh.
I don't want anybody else messing with my hair!!!
Crafted Hair Studio!!!!Rachael Epstein!!!!!!!!! – Rachael started cutting my hair when she was in school, that was over 10 years ago. Do I need to say anymore. Go to her and you will ask yourself why haven't I found her before this. Her studio has the best vibe - not stuffy, not snooty, nor dumpy or average. She is creative, artistic and also warm and caring. She will take your needs and wants and you will walk out of her studio feeling sassy, cute gorgous, smart what ever you want. GO!!!
Best Hairlove you will ever recieve! – Rachel is a godsend! She saved me from 20 years of blow drying and straightening my hair, I was so afraid of rocking the crazy curly natural hair that I have but she made me feel totally comfortable and even gave me bangs! ( which I haven't had in 15+ years). I love spending 2 mins on my hair MAX! and looking awesome in the process.
Get your hair love ON!
P.S.- Did I mention Rachel is totally rad?
May I mention your RAD!!!! X x x x
