About Watermelon Studio

Rachel, Creator of Watermelon Studio

Hello, I'm Rachel. I have created a new approach to the "Salon Experience" based on individual attention, a casual atmosphere, and most of all, fabulous hair.

I have a true passion for hair and take much of my inspiration from nature and our everyday surroundings. Colours, shapes, textures and shades are all around us, and I bring this holistic approach into my work to create unique styles that are as individual as each of my clients.

I would like to think of myself as not just a hairstylist but also as an artist. In my studio I create different looks for all types of people from all walks of life. Because of this, Watermelon Studio isn't a salon, it's a creative studio where pretension disappears and one-on-one attention is the primary focus.

Throughout my career I have worked with, and been trained by, some of the most talented and well-respected people and companies involved in the haircare industry. I have a great deal of respect for, and I am always inspired by, Vidal Sassoon. He changed the way people look at hair and created classic looks that are still popular today. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to work for Vidal Sassoon for almost two years.

I was trained in Canada in 1994, working primarily with Wella and Joico, two very well respected names in colour and hair care products. During that time I worked for a highly experienced colour educator and technician that shared all of her knowledge with me. That experience opened my eyes to the world of colour and all the possibilities it brings to delivering the right haircut for the right person.

Because of my experience in working with so many talented people I have always maintained a belief in constant training to stay on top of new trends and products. I have attended many different training courses and will always continue to train at a high standard.

The high standards in which I believe transcend training and my dedication to my clients to continue on to the products I choose to utilise in my studio. As such all the products I use are top quality. I am a Wella Master Colour Expert, using the full product portfolio that Wella has to offer.
I love doing creative projects and taking courses I feel I should never stop pushing my creative boundaries and learning new skills.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to learn more about what I offer .I work by appointment only, offering daytime and evening appointments Tuesday through Saturday. Feel free to email me, ring, or text. I will do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.
