JENNIFER BARRON | hair stylist

After graduating at the top of her class from The Academy of Hair Design, Jen chose to take a traditionally European approach to beginning her career, and further her training before becoming a full-time stylist. Jen was one of the first stylists to complete Revel 8’s intense internship program, which she not only excelled at, but finished in record time. During her training, Jen had the opportunity to learn side by side with some of the best stylists in the nation. It wasn’t long before senior stylists were trusting Jen with their own clients and even frequently asking her for advice on color formulation.

 

Choosing to take a nontraditional training route, allowed Jen the opportunity to gain industry knowledge and training that would have taken five to ten years for the average stylist to acquire on their own. Immersing herself in the culture of Revel 8 from the beginning of her career has also given Jen the advantage of understanding the value of uncompromising customer service, which shows in every second of her client interactions.

 

Jen began her journey into the beauty industry by working in cosmetics. Working as a cosmetics counter manger for over five years at both Macy’s and Nordstrom’s in Southern California, gave Jen the opportunity to learn advanced color theory as well as an in depth understanding of cosmetic ingredients, how and why they are used, and for whom they are best served.

 

Jen’s training includes, advanced Keune color certification, UNITE cutting and styling techniques, Oribe styling and finishing training, and Brazilian Blowout certification. Jen has traveled all over the United States to train with industry giants such as George Alderetti and Gary Baker. Jen has also had the opportunity to work as key makeup artist with internationally published photographer Josh Welch. She looks forward to even more travel and training in the near future and is always seeking to better herself and her craft in order to bring her clients the latest and greatest that the fashion and beauty industry have to offer.

 

Jen is Revel 8’s resident “brow master”. Many of the stylists at Revel 8 seek out appointments with Jen for brow shaping because of her ability showcase each individual’s face shape, sculpting the perfect brow to emphasize that person’s unique beauty.

 

Hair color is Jen’s passion. She is excited to enhance natural beauty with free hand balayage and grey blending. Creating styles that are effortless, and teaching clients how to achieve “in salon hair” at home is a top priority for Jen.

 

Jen has a special way of connecting with her clients on a personal level. Making each person who sets in her chair feel welcome and loved is a rare talent that few other stylists are able to achieve in the way that Jen does. Personal style, personality, and lifestyle are all considered when conceptualizing the perfect cut and style for each individual.

NICHOLE FARROW | hair stylist

“Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”
-Albert Einstein

 

In the art of hair design, there is more to be said about the value behind what you do than from the measure of success. Being passionate as an artist gives Nichole wisdom beyond the craft of hair design by building personal values and self-determination. To Nichole, creating hair design is more than considering a person’s features and daily lives; it’s about truly creating a piece of art. Bringing art and value into what she loves allows for a cut or color service to be more than just an accessory; it becomes part of a person’ character.

 

Nichole is a full-time hair stylist and specializes in unique color services that are tailored to each individual’s lives as well as their personalities. Working with L’Oreal Professionnel as an artist has allowed Nichole to work amongst the most talented people in the industry as well as provide the means to share what the craft of hair design means. Along with being a color artist Nichole is fully knowledgeable in the Tony&Guy cutting methodology as well as being certified in Hott Headz extensions and the Coppola Keratin Smoothing Treatment. She looks forward to meeting you very soon!

RACHEL BALDWIN | hair stylist

I am Rachel Baldwin and I was born a hairdresser. My earliest inspirations are of my southern bell granny and the immaculate gowns she made me as a very young child and how she would revel in the delight of styling my hair to Jesus. My mother is the biggest inspiration; she raised me on fashion tv and thrift store shopping. She taught me to stay focused on my dreams and to always strive for greatness, regardless the cost.

 

I have been cutting, coloring and styling hair for as long as I can remember. Growing up the daughter of a military man and traveling many places in the world has taught me to love culture and diversity.

 

I’ve always been interested in the tougher hair textures to tame. I’ve found Brazilian Blowout Smoothing treatment to be the best treatment to take away 100% frizz and to soften and smooth unruly textures. I live for color. The spice of culture! Color and texture paired together we can create anything we want. I enjoy all styles of hair color but my preference is low maintenance, naturally accented designs. Balayage color techniques are my specialty.

 

I am constantly seeking the best continued education that money can buy to provide my clients current, personalized style. I travel continually to bring back my inspirations to my clientele that I love whole heartedly.

ROSE BAEZ | hair stylist

Creative. Passionate. Consistent.

 

I consider your hair to be an expression of yourself, an enhancement of your inner beauty and personality.

 

What I love: balayage, things that last, hair color that makes you want to dance.
