Raquel Russey Stewart is the full-time Educational Director and Master Stylist at Burt Grant Salon in downtown Arlington.
Her obsession with hair started at an early age by spending time in her grandmother’s hair salon. By age seven, she began honing her craft, acting as a kitchen hair dresser and working on her mother’s and sisters’ hair. Seeing Raquel’s natural talent blossom over the years, her sister enrolled her in beauty school after high school.
Raquel started her professional career nearly 20 years ago at Mark Pardo Salon in Albuquerque, NM and was trained by Aveda Purefessional™ Cynthia Gonzales Martinez. It was under Cynthia’s tutelage that Raquel discovered her passion for education, leading her to eventually become a Certified Hair Color Educator.
