Rachel Lipson | Founder & CEO

Like many founders, my life has evolved quite a bit since I started my business. I started my company in my 20s before having a spouse or children and put all of my energy into the business.

Kristen Toussaint | Hairstylist

It was definitely a challenge in the Beginning. Omg I was all over the place. I spent a lot of my time in church. Tuesday bible study and Sunday at church. Going to church events keeping myself active and around everything good. I know I talk about God a lot but he is truly the balance we all need in order to be our greatest self.
