RACHEL LARA KRANTZ
RACHEL LARA KRANTZ
First and foremost - she's held Beyoncé's hand. Ergo, Beyoncé's hand has now touched your hair.
Growing up in beautiful Mammoth Lakes, California, Rachel's love of the Northwest comes as no surprise. When she's not behind the chair, she's either out riding horses in Damascus or adventuring through Oregon with her other half - Suzy, her Parsons Russel Terrier.
Being a 3rd generation hairstylist, you could say the family business of hair came naturally. After graduating from Paul Mitchell in San Francisco, Rachel quickly moved into the esteemed apprenticeship program at Oxenrose salon where she furthered her education with Vidal Sassoon, DiPietro Todd, Bumble&Bumble, Brazilian Blowouts, and balayage techniques. In 2012, following years of fine tuning her skills in San Fransisco, she decided to take the big leap and call Portland her new home (yes, she's one of those).
After making a name for herself in Portland, Rachel is now taking clients in her private studio space - ROAN. Although she's serious about damn good hair, her easy-going personality makes an experience with her one to remember.. or just relax. It's all about you.

Well versed in straight razor and scissor, Rachel's expert technique combined with her lived-in aesthetic gives the perfect blend of easy to maintain and 'dayuuuuum girl, you look good!'. Taking her time in consultation with the consideration of your lifestyle, and the hair goals you're looking to achieve, you can rest easy in Rachel's chair knowing that this is a cut you can grow with.

Whether its covering resistant grays or venturing into blonder territory - She's got you. Specializing in balayage and micro-highlighting to give a natural, sun-kissed look is what allows Rachel's color clients to have the dimension and amped up color they want while also allowing them to live a low maintenance lifestyle. She believes in a slow and steady regimen to achieve any lightening, maintaining that the health of your hair is #1.
Maybe she's born with it.. or maybe it was Rachel Krantz.

Rachel was #blessed with what she affectionately calls 'feral hair', and because of this she discovered the life-changing world of Brazilian Blowouts. Certified with the Brazilian Blowout brand, she offers this service to clients wanting to smooth and tame their unruly hair. Got bangs? This service can also be done on bangs only to eliminate much of the 'OMG why did I get bangs?!' hassle of styling them and leave only the good.
She also offers olaplex treatments, as well as toner and glossing services to extend the life of your color in-between major appointments.
