Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have a pretty major addiction to highlight. For me, makeup started as an escape; as self-care, if you will. When I have a brush in my hand, the world gets quiet and life’s problems don’t seem quite as jarring. Not only do I have a beautiful hobby, but I feel incredibly lucky to be able to do this as a career! I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Rachel has a strong passion to create beautiful art for her clients as she styles their hair and makeup to perfection. She is the longest standing team member at Selah Vie, next to Hanna, the owner. She received personal mentoring from Hanna in both hair and makeup, to take her talent to the next level. Rachel is highly skilled, and very caring, and gives her clients an incredible experience with her sweet personality, and high talent level.
