Rachel is the owner and creator of Rachel Claire Salon. Growing up in a small town, after attending community college for business, she decided to pursue her dream as a Cosmetologist. Starting in the industry in 2003, she practiced cosmetology while managing a salon for the first 3 years in the Okoboji area. After moving to the Des Moines area, working for a couple local Aveda salons, mentoring, traveling around the country to study under world renowned hairdressers, she decided to extend her career by opening her own Davines concept salon.
