Colie, Owner/Stylist at Rik Rak Studio, has had an exciting journey through education, growth, and passion in the beauty industry. At an early age, Colie showed interest in the world of beauty by asking questions and seeking answers while joining her mother at her salon job.

In 2006, Colie decided to persue her dream by attended Regency Beauty Institute and graduated that same year as a licensed Cosmetologist. Colie continued to further her experience and refine her craft by absorbing all the beauty knowledge she possibly could. She started by learning about full body waxing, special occasion styling, and Redken hair color, at salons where she was employed, but didn't truly find her groove until she found her home at a Redken salon, which sparked her interest in curly hair, Redken Color, and products. She attended Redken Exchange in NY, learning about corrective color from some of Redken's top performing artists, achieving her Redken Hair Color Certification.

Colie showed no signs of slowing down. In 2010, she was 1 of 40 applicants accepted to become a Redken Artist, which entailed 3 intensive weeks of training in Florida. Redken's wonderful resources taught her valuable knowledge about spreading the love of education with fellow salon professionals, helping them reach their career potential in order to succeed in the industry.

Colie started spending most of her time traveling to Midwest salons offering education to stylists about growth and technique. Colie traveled the country to learn cutting edge techniques and trends in the industry, not only to learn and challenge herself, but to also share with other stylists and beauty professionals. Colie returned back to behind the chair full time before taking her next passionate step in her career.

In October 2013, Colie fulfilled a life-long dream by opening Rik Rak Studio. Learning the "ins-and-outs" of running a small business is her latest exciting challenge, which fuels her love for continuing to make her guest’s look and feel amazing. She is very comfortable with working with curly hair, and listening to her guests fears, challenges, and needs. She enjoys working with color to create a look that suits your individual personality. Offering a comfortable environment, Colie will make your hair removal service an experience that will make you want to come back for more. She'll talk you through what to expect, provide before and after care, and promises great results.

Over the past year, Colie has been focusing on Bridal/Wedding services, and has been building up an impressive wedding portfolio. She enjoys traveling to bridal events and weddings, and participating in on-site events, easing the stress during a brides "big day". This allows the bride and groom to not only look their best, but also enjoy the comfort of their closest family and friends as they prepare to walk down the isle.

Colie offers her creative expertise to transform your hair into what you desire. She would love to work with you on designing your look, educating you on product regimes that make your hair look and feel its best.
