VISIONARY STYLIST, SALON OWNER & EDUCATOR

The Words Say IT ALL!

There is never a reason to give up.  Take another path, another approach.  Recharge and reconsider but do not give up.  Life is for the living.  Breath and share your thoughts with those you pass each day.

A REAL WOMAN

When they say beauty is in the eye of the  beholder it is much more.  Beauty is not the superficial make-up, hair style, and designer clothing.  The real beauty of a woman is the chaotic language that shines through her eyes.

ENJOY THE CRAZINESS OF LIFE

We have one life to live.  Enjoy your life.  Make it enjoyable.  Be silly.  Laugh and enjoy the ups and downs and learn that life is not perfect but we each have the opportunity to make it best we can ...smile it takes less energy than a frown.

Preparing for a New Day

If you want to make a change you need to stop thinking about it and do just do it.   Of course you must give it some thought, but take the challenge to live your dream.  Start with your outer self, your hair.  Tune-in to newclevelandradio.net, tomorrow, Wednesday, June 28th and listen to Confessions of a Hairdresser.  I will be coming to you live and you can call in and talk to me...440-922-6431.  Ask questions about summer styles that will spark that inner YOU!

Enjoy Each Day

Even on rainy days there is so much to be thankful for! Find your inner child and embrace what the day brings! Maybe a jump in a puddle..or a good book on the couch. It all about perspective and enjoyment!

IT's OK 2 B UNIQUE

For those who know me can you truthfully say I am one of a kind?  Unique! I will take it as a compliment. I embrace life with a yes attitude, and I am determined to be the best version of myself! But I promise I have a few differences that I must work through! I am not negative; I am just honest. I am a horrible speller, and I use run on sentences.  Thank god for spell check and for a team that will read over my written work! But I embrace my imperfections and let my excellences shine through! With my bad spelling, I came up with the thought process of being a creative speller.   Instead of creating doubt for myself I create an opportunity to grow! My journey isn't about misspelled words it's about discovering how to make a story out of challenges to love myself. To be OK if others are better at something that I am not, while I educate others and share my strengths. A long time ago I heard this quote that I have chosen to live by, " We are only as strong as our weakest link."

·         My take on that quote means:

·         Train, grow and communicate.

·         Learn from your coworkers to your family & friends!

·         Continue this into your community.

·         Embrace the difference of the people around you and of yourself!

·         The real beauty in the world is uniqueness.

·         Be your kind of beautiful and live with determination

Be Good To Yourself

Be good to yourself – Not Just today but every day.  Take the time to read (or listen to a book.)  Self-indulge yourself with learning.  Learning is a way to cleanse your mind and rid yourselves of all the garbage that you absorb through the media.

 Be good to yourself -eat nutritionally.  Find the foods that suit your mood and personality that will provide you a healthier lifestyle.  If an apple a day keeps the doctor away; start each day with a nice crisp, juicy apple. 

 If you want to rid yourself of wrinkles, consider eating strawberries or any berries; they help with collagen from the inside out.

 Be good to yourself – exercise.  Talk a walk, or run or jog if you like.  Dancing is excellent and socially fun, or Yoga for stretching and breathing does wonders for cardiovascular health as well as relaxation.

 Be good to yourself – take time for YOU – it’s called ME Time.  And the next time you say you’re busy, it’s because you’re living life like me!

Glass Is Full - Not Half for Me!

When I think of how I chose to live my life it's with the glass overflowing, not even half empty.   I often wonder why some people focus on the negative aspects of their lives. We all have some negativity but it if you pick through it and dispose of it, your glass can overflow too.  We all have a choice.   Each day is a new day.  I have chosen to be happy, gratified, and ready to explore new adventures.

My business provides me the opportunity for those experiences. Being a hairdresser leads to an endless opportunity.  For me, it has opened-up doors to explore the world.  I have gone from doing hair in a salon to getting a chance to do hair on a cruise ship.  Not only do I style hair, but I also instruct as I get to share my passion in various ways and learn from others in exciting new places along the way.

The Year of the Solution

Instead of a resolution create a solution for 2017

My life is centered around creating a life of solutions.  To quote Michael Jordan, “Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.”  Life is meant to be lived and enjoyed and although there will be moments when doubt may creep into the mix, I have learned to accept those moments and find a detour to a positive path.  It may be time to put on a motivational CD, YouTube video, or turn to a mentor for a guiding hand to get back to where I need to go.  If I can do it, so can you.

Make Today The Day To Share Your Thanks 12/23/2016

For the last 16 years, I have been traveling with my craft.  I have been mentored, and I have mentored along the way.  One of my dearest friends, Heather, calls me her Walt, (Walt Disney.)  She identifies me as a dreamer.  However, I am a dreamer who wakes up and becomes a doer. 

Not only do I travel with multiple teams teaching other stylists that they can follow their dreams, but I learn from them as I listen to them and what they can teach me.  I think back at how lucky I am to be able to influence others to keep following their dreams. I also look at the people that have inspired me. 

Take a moment and think about someone who has inspired you?  Make today the day you share your thanks!

2017 Here Is To GREAT THINGS

Welcome, 2017! As I reflect on last year, it had its ups and downs, but I loved it all. When I thought I could not continue, I did.  I'm proud of the journey I'm on, and in 2017 I plan on sharing more on my website plus keep writing my first book.

I continue to learn more about myself and grow from all of it. I know my journey is long and life will always give me a chance to transform. With a new year, a new day and new hope. I reflect on how 'we' may forget the pure pleasure of life.

I just traveled with my two boys and that time was the best.  Sharing and making memories is the absolute joy of living.  Sometimes it's the less glamorous things that make a trip.  My youngest son ended up getting sick, (including vomiting.)   However, as a family, we slowed down to include him.  We slept, relaxed and spent time at the resort. Once he felt better; we continued our week at Disney World.  It's the simple things that help us grow; it's also how we react to situations that create the better outcomes.

I am still learning, and working on patience and compassion. Discovering that not everyone will move at my speed, as we are all created to take our personal journey at our pace. Be kind to each other as it is how you will be remembered.

Cheers to 2017.

Disney is Magical

As I head to Disney after Christmas not only is this a family trip it is also about leadership among my family members.  For the last 16 years, I have been traveling with my craft.  I have been mentored, and I have mentored along the way.  One of my dearest friends, Heather, calls me her Walt, (Walt Disney.)  She identifies me as a dreamer.  However, I am a dreamer who wakes up and becomes one who does what she dreams!

Not only do I travel with multiple teams teaching other stylists that they can follow their dreams, but I learn from them as I listen to them and what they can teach me.  I think back at how lucky I am to be able to influence others to keep following their dreams. I also look at the people that have inspired me. 

My family inspires me, my mother and father who have joined my sons and my son’s girlfriend and me on this magical Disney Dream Trip

Take a moment and think about someone who has inspired you?  Make today the day you share your thanks!

 

APPRECIATION

Although this is the time of year so many reflect on their blessings, I I think about how blessed I am, every day! I am invited to many great cities, and I get to style hair, and truly that's my passion.  Recently, I was talking about this with a friend and he reminded me “you do the same thing you just get to do it in other cities."  I agreed with that thinking.  It's about how I love to help people feel their best and see their beauty. I get to spread that passion beyond my one traffic light town.


However, at the end of the day, I look back thinking about how people just want to be loved (appreciated) and treated well during a great personal experience. It makes no difference what city I am in, or what neighborhood, people all want the same form of kindness.  As Dorothy from the "Wizard of Oz" says, "there's no place like home!"   Every time I return home, I'm so appreciative of all the little things as I drive to my one traffic light town.   

 

Dream

My mother always told me if you want something – go out and work for it – key word work.  Rachelle turns work into life - She lives her DREAM!  Join her.
