Rachel at Designory Hair & Makeup did a wonderful job on my make up and hair, my daughter's make up and hair and my granddaughter's hair for my wedding. We were all very pleased with the results. She was so easy to work with and made sure we were all happy with the finished product. I would highly recommend her to do you hair and make up for any special occasion or event.
I recently went to Rachel at Designory HM for the first time and was extremely pleased with the experience! Not only did Rachel do a great job on my cut and color, she was also super friendly and accommodating! I will certainly be back!

Specializes in all things beautiful - We love balayage & color, wedding styles& makeup & trendy cuts! Established in September 2014 in the Midlands, Designory has existed for many years but also in many different capacities.

It started as Rachel Coleman Hair - reflecting the owner and artist that leads Designory now. However, as Designory started growing, Rachel wanted a name that reflected the artists that make up the studio, and so Designory Hair and Makeup Studio was born! In September 2018 a brick and mortar location was opened in Clemson, SC where Rachel works behind the chair serving clients with modern cuts, so

Fall inspired, blonde required 🤓

Falling back for fall doesn't necessarily mean going brunette. This blonde has warmth and depth and all the things that make you feel like a warm cup of chai tea or a bon fire on a crisp evening. 🍂

What's the difference between foils and balayage? Painted hair creates a shell on the top and keeps depth on the back side - much like the sun lightens your hair. I love giving my clients that need something low maintenance hair that looks beautiful and dimensional without the harsh line of foils. 💝

We went to the moon in 1969 🌕🚀

In 2021 we use Moon Landing anti-humidity spray. Times have changed in 52 years, right? LOL

But on a serious note, I love this spray because I'm not a huge hairspray person, but I like a little control with a little protection from the extreme Charleston humidity. Let me know if you want to give it a try next time you are in the salon! You won't regret it!

Color like you’ve been at the beach 🏖

Has anyone been to the beach recently? I literally am like 20 minutes from the closest beach and have had 1 beach day! 🥺 Hope you are getting to enjoy the sun and sand more than I am. 🤪 What is your favorite part or being at the beach? I think I love reading u set an umbrella while the waves crash in the background. It’s Such a nice way to disconnect.

White Hot Summer

This color overhaul included a platinum foil, root shadow, and violet toner. We took extra care to not overlap already heavily blonded parts of her hair, and used Olaplex in every step.

Wedding season makes me so happy.
I love that in this industry we can sculpt an updo and really elevate even a simple outfit. I’ve always loved updos and started doing them on myself when I was in high school and was bored. This was obviously before texting and iPhones were a thing. 🙃
Are you an updo or a down and curly girl? Let me know in the comments.

I just want pizza! Pizza understands me… 🍕
Love this sentiment almost as much as I love this 90’s inspired layered cut.

My hubby and I love a pizza night and have been creating a spread sheet so we can rank our favorite pizza place. What’s your must add Charleston pizza restaurant? Drop it in the comments so we can add it to our rankings.

Sometimes you just need to find the person that speaks your kind of blonde. 🪄

After several sessions of not quite getting to the blonde she wanted, my client came in and we changed it up. There were several different levels of blonde, so I took extra care to put different formulations from the root to the ends inside each foil. The reality of getting to the blonde of your dreams is that sometimes the service is a lot longer, more intensive, and requires add ons like @Olaplex.

Shout out a time you were pleasantly surprised when you left the salon. ☺️ ⬇️

I always have Mondays off, so it isn’t necessarily a long weekend, but I love the energy of the unofficial start of summer.

This may just look like a picture of a blonde bob, but what you aren't seeing in this photo is the 11 + years of experience that created this beautiful end result.

Behind every single color formula is a calculated and educated decision. Sounds like a lot of work right?

To me, none of this feels like work at all! I feel like I get to come to work and play. Who’s coming in this month to let me play? Comment below if you want to know the unexpected tone I used in my client’s base formula.

Are you on a natural journey? ⁠

This pearly grey goodness has been several years in the making. She wanted to keep her length, and was dedicated to slowly lightening her leftover color regularly. We still have some leftover color that is toned as her natural is growing in, but I love where she is right now.⁠

For all those considering going natural, it can be done! Be prepared for regular appointments to keep yellowing at bay, blonding with Olaplex, and a lot of patience. ⁠

Flashback to 2017 ⬅️⁠

Recognize that background? I helped the SV team with some wedding makeup back in 2017! What a full circle moment. ⁠

Loved this bridesmaid that wasn’t timid to go with a dark berry lip. Also love looking back at how far I have come in my craft. Every day, every client, we have a chance to work towards being better. What a blessing. 💕

Took this client from long layers to this trendy blunt bob with a little curtain bang. After smoothing, we sprayed in some Bb Surf spray for a little more of that lived in texture. Swipe for the before! ➡️⁠

New Year's resolution: Play with more curls➿

01/01/2021

It has been an honor and privilege to have been able to work with the people of Clemson. Opening Designory was an absolute adventure - there were days I prayed for more business and days I prayed for more time. There were days when I laughed and days when I cried. The clients and friends I served helped me build a really
cool space, and I hope I contributed to
Clemson in all the right ways. Deciding to go back to school, opening the studio with a full course load, planning a wedding, Covid and 2020 and the life in-between - my clients allowed me to create and fall back in love with working behind the chair. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I will miss everyone so much with the close of this chapter, but the space lives on with my friend @sarahaturner13. And my next chapter is pretty exciting too, guys. Stay tuned “The ending is always a surprise.”
❤️💇🏼‍♀️

Did the Q make you realize you kind of like that rooted look?
1. Did a pop HL (about 26 foils)
2. Root shadowed from regrowth down a bit further and
3. Connected root shadow to low lighted pieces and reverse balayage.
Her heavily foiled hair can now be maintained with more time between appointments and less time in the chair at each appointment (until she decides to be bright blonde again 😜😈)

Designory is so excited to get back to beautiful hair and makeup. We have a couple of suggested mandates from the state, and also have created some of our own. We want to create the safest, most sanitary environment for all of you (and us!) Here are some of our new policies:

Remain in your vehicle when you arrive and text your stylist. We will be letting people inside individually.

Please arrive with a mask or any other ppe you would like to wear. The only thing we will be requiring at this time is a mask. You can also purchase a mask for $1.

If you have been unwell, have allergies, have traveled within the last 14 days, we will reschedule your appointment.

You are the only person allowed at your appointment - at this time, we ask for no friends or family tagging along.

Clients of Sarah: be on the lookout for policies specific to her chair. Clients of Rachel: be on the lookout for policies specific to her chair

If you have any questions or concerns about our policies, please message or call your stylist.

05/11/2020

Who needs that fresh post-quarantine appointment? Online booking is closed for now (sorry, working on handling the onslaught of reschedules) BUT you can always message or text us @ 864-323-7305.
