Rachel Saxon is southern spitfire from Birmingham, AL. She attended Winonah's International School of Beauty and graduated in 2007. In 2011 she packed up her 1991 Chevy Blazer and moved sight unseen to Austin. She is a color and balayage specialist as well as Vidal Sassoon graduate in cutting. She's previously worked in salons all over Austin but has been happy to call Vain her home away from home since 2017.

“I specialize in custom balayage, specifically hand-painted custom coloring. I love to create lived-in looks that not only look effortless with or without styling, but can be maintained with visits as little as every 6 months. Also for all those instances where you forgot to ask your old stylist for their formula I’m also a color matching specialist! Bonus if you love to talk tarot, books, Eurovision, or British murder mysteries”
