Rachelle Rodriquez hair designer 5 star review

Let’s hear from Salon Plaza’s Member of the Month, Rachelle Rodriquez –

Rachelle Rodriguez hair designer

My four sisters found out early how much I love to do hair. I used to experiment on them! The good news for them (and me!) is that I was good at it.

At Chantilly High School I studied cosmetology (that was an easy A) and got my license in cosmetology. While going to college with a soccer scholarship, I tore my knee and had to come up with Plan B.

“You’re good, you need to make a career out of this.”

– Mr. White, Chantilly High School

Thank you, Mr. White, for encouraging me to make a career out in the beauty industry. Mr. White, who still teaches at Chantilly High School, is my biggest influence in the cosmetology world. Like a second father to me, he still meets with me for lunch and gives me business tips.

Balayage and the Science of Hair with April Baxter

The Science of Hair

“I wish I were a magician and I could do whatever you wanted me to do with color. But I have to work within the laws of chemistry to get the look you want – and we might not get there in one appointment.”

Not only does the owner of ‘The Square’ Hair Salon, April Baxter know her stuff when it comes to hair – she can talk about it, too. Big on the science of hair, she does everything for a reason, not just with the hope that it will turn out right.

An American Board Certified Colorist and a Redken Certified Colorist, she approaches hair through chemistry. With a ton of further education, she understands WHY she’s does what she does to get a desired look, not just what to do.

You’re So Wonderful

People are shocked. They are literally shocked.
