Hi! I’m Rachel Yancey, creator of Bold City Hair. I am your Jacksonville hair stylist, hair colorist, hair extension specialist, and hair extension educator.
I created BCH in 2015 and have been a working stylist since 2009, specializing in hair extensions for the last ten plus years. I love being creative and while drawing is one of my favorite hobbies, I also love creating custom looks and makeovers for my clients. Your personal style and personality are important factors in creating custom looks. Having references is an important tool for communicating with your stylist. I have heard many times ‘I don’t know how to explain it.’ Find pictures and we can evaluate and give you fabulous hair!
I believe your hair should look great every day of the year, not just at the salon. I am committed to giving my clients the best customer service, freshest ideas and emerging trends. I believe in giving clients education and a hair care routine that works to their suites, so they can have great hair at home too. I take pride in my career and love staying on my toes with continuing education, whether it is learning or teaching!
I started out young in all kinds of art classes, naturally thriving on anything creative. My dad has been a Barber for over 40 years with his own shop, and I always knew I wanted to do hair. However, my parents wanted me to go to college so I went for Graphic Design, still keeping my creativity flowing. But sitting at the desk wasn’t for me. I went to hair school and I’ve been at it since! I’ve worked at salons in Jacksonville such as Fusion Salon, Verde Eco Salon, Elite Salon & Day Spa, and West Coast Hair Design. I soon followed my move to the salon with a Bachelors Degree in Supervision and Business Management always with the plan to one day have my very own salon.
I am a Master Colorist and Hair Extension Specialist. I use hair color by Davines North America, and I specialize in the hand tied weft extensions, fusion, i-tip (or beads), and tape-in hair extension methods. Some hair extension brands I love to use are Platform hair extensions, Bombshell hair extensions(Habit Hand Tied), DreamCatchers, and Halo Couture. Only the finest quality 100% Remy human hair is used regardless of method.
