To turn the creativity smoldering in Rocio Contreras's head from a simple idea into a client’s hairstyle requires dexterous technique. That's why the nine-year veteran merges her aesthetic sense with the technical knowledge she gained training with industry heavyweights such as Vidal Sassoon, Kadus, and Moroccanoil. Inside of A Touch of Heaven Salon, Rocio calls on these dual aspects of her art to cut, sculpt, and color hairstyles that complement each client’s personal style and goals for future limbo competitions.

Lori Cohea began her career as a stylist and colorist 15 years ago, and sculpted dos everywhere from salons to make-over television shows. By the time she arrived at Rayfield & Company, she had settled on her specialty as a colorist and her preference in products.

Her skilled highlighting and deft tinting earned her a nod from D-Magazine in 2002 as the Best Trend-Setting Stylist at the well-known salon where she worked.
