Hi! I'm Rachael; a London-based hair editor and producer with ten years of experience.
I studied Fashion Design (BA) at Manchester Metropolitan University before gaining an MA in Fashion Journalism from the London College of Fashion.
Currently I'm a freelance hair editor, but have previously worked as a producer at Mastered creating their online session styling courses with Guido and Sam McKnight.
I also work on a freelance basis for hair brands including ghd, Schwarzkopf Professional and Trevor Sorbie.
My side project is The Hair Historian; an Instagram account combining art history and hair history – as featured in ELLE and AnOther.
Before Mastered, I spent five years as web editor for www.HJi.co.uk – the online home of the 135-year-old title Hairdressers Journal, aka ‘the Bible of the hairdressing industry’ (and the brains behind the British Hairdressing Awards and Salon International).
Prior to that, I was the acting editor on the Scissorhands Media portfolio of consumer hair titles; Hair Now, Hair & Beauty Inspirations, Perfect Hair and www.findasalon.co.uk.
It’s safe to say, I know a thing or two about hair. (And I'm pretty into hair metal, too.)
