I started Hair & Makeup by Jessica Raak  in 2016 but have been doing hair since I can remember. I graduated cosmetology school in 2012 and have mentored under some of the best hairdressers in the country. Recently I have moved back to Houston full time after going to and from the west coast for 2 years banging hair! I am excited to be back and available to all of my new and old clients here in Htown full time. I specialize in dimensional color, color correcting , haircutting, hair styling, makeup, special occasion looks, fashion, Tv, editorial, and hair extensions. I have a huge passion for fashion & staying on trend with my work. Educating myself is VERY important to me , which is why I travel all over the US (one day the world), attending classes on everything new and even older techniques to ensure I am always growing as an artist. I can assure you I only get better :).

I consult with every client in depth detail so that I  can understand exactly what it is you want, we will always be on the same page and have a plan for your "hair goal." Educating you as the client is key to my success. I will go over all at home care and necessary products including how to use them and when. I am not a "sales" girl and will never push anyone to purchase something they do not need. Trust from my clients is very important to me. I do offer private hair and makeup lessons, even in a store of your choosing so you can learn more about your favorite brands, and I can show you some of mine as well. You will leave feeling more confident in your skills. 

Some of my accomplishments...so far...include having my work published in national magazines as well as on runways, being able to have clients on the west coast and travel back and forth every month for 2 years, being named "Best Female Hairstylist in Houston" by outsmart magazine, and several times I have performed how-to make-up lessons for viewers on national television for ABC.  The biggest one yet is definitely venturing out on my own and starting this business. Thank you to my beautiful clients past present and future for all of the love and support. 

XOXO Jess


I searched all over Houston for a hair stylist, and am so fortunate to have found Jessica! I honestly look forward to my monthly appointments. She listens, gives great advice, and truly cares about her clients
