About the Blog

Hello, I am Rachel Lynn Carr, Austin-based hair stylist, proudly working at Luminosity Hair Studio in the Mueller neighborhood of Austin.

My services always begin with a thorough consultation, so I can get to know the clients needs and desires. I thrive on finding creative solutions and new means of self expression.  If you are interested in appointment, please check out my salon’s site: luminosityhairstudio.com.

I went to college at University of Pittsburgh studying writing and art. In some ways, I found the world of academia too superficial, which (ironically, some would say) led me to the beauty industry. I love the ability to work and talk with different types of people from every culture and socioeconomic class and I love giving people the opportunity to relax in my chair and walk out feeling pampered and confident. I travel the world learning more about hair and more about people.

This is a blog about social, artistic and emotional/psychological issues related to beauty, as well as tips, tricks, trends and my experiences with continuing education. Enjoy!
