Raquel was born in the country of Mexico and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Early into her childhood, she found herself dissatisfied with the way her mother would style her hair. Young and ambitious, she took the task upon herself and began finding new and exciting ways to style her hair before school. It was shortly after that she began doing her family member’s hair, and a love for “all things hair” blossomed. She attended the Aveda Institute of New Mexico and graduated in 2013. Now, she feels beyond rewarded to be able to fuel her client’s confidence with their new style.
