Rachel! Do you have any hair tips? I live in the south and have a similar hair texture as yours - wavy/curly. I’ve yet to discover a way to tame my texture and make it look uniform / not looking like the girl from The Exorcist. You’ve really nailed the effortless look and was wondering what your step by step process is like. I remember you once took over OUAI’s snapchat and posted your process - that was gold btw - would you ever do a similar video for your youtube channel?

oh i should totally do a hair video, i'm surprised i've never done one! I forgot about the OUAI takeover haha I can do it like that. for now, my only tip is to shampoo on the 3/4 day and lots of hair oil! x

Hi, Rachel! First off, I want to say that you are absolutely gorgeous, and I really admire how you carry yourself in terms of style and confidence and the way you absolutely emit vibrancy when interacting with others. Ethereal is the only word that comes to mind. You’re ethereal, girl. This raises the question: What is your philosophy on communication? How are you able to be so open, chill, and cool at the same time? Based on your videos, you really attract and influence positive energy. Any tips to building strong, lasting friendships? x

Aw this is so sweet, thank you for noticing. Hm, I think as far as communication, it's best to be open both to yourself and externally. ALSO if youre comfortable, the person youre talking to or are friends with will feel comfortable too and open up to you and thats always appreciated. sometimes you even gotta fake the comfort until it's real

Hey Rachel. I've been a slump these past few months. I have no idea what I want to do with my life and I feel like everyone is pressuring me to choose a career. How did you know to take the path you have chosen?

Hi Rachel have you ever thought of changing your youtube profile picture? You look beautiful in it but I think the picture doesn't represent mood of your youtube content well.

hey rachel this is super random but i just saw casey neistat's vlog about rip offs that was posted around 2 years ago then i came across your comment. I don't know which big youtuber ripped you off but I've never seen any youtubers as unique as you. Your personal touches are everywhere in your videos and they are so mesmerizing and dreamy. I'm not a creative nor an artistic person but I really appreciate what you're putting out on the platform and hope you never stop!

Honestly I don't have the answers to everything, I kinda am an opportunist and I see room for improvement and I know how to make it happen. I think companies value my point of view and expertise and thats how I get hired for what I do. a lot of it comes from doing a ton of research and having a really keen finger on the pulse of everything thats happening!

Thank you! Well, if you follow me on IG, you might have seen in my story that I was consulting for Glossier for a month. I haven't had the bandwidth to edit videos. I finished my contract though and should hopefully be getting on track soon! x

Hi Rachel, I'm in high school and I've been watching your videos for about a year now,and I'm obsessed with you as a creator and the quality of your videos, you are one of the few people that inspire me, but my questions are...what do you do to get your creative juices flowing? How do you come up with new content? and Lastly, what are some tips for someone that wants to start a blog? Thank you 🙂

Its important to gain inspiration from everything you do, and the process of creating comes from trial and error. just start making things that you love and collaborate with your friends, and ask for peer review! xx

yay ❤️❤️❤️so happy to hear! I think video making is a really big bite to take and can be really intimidating. I always suggest to just do it- you're probably not gunna post your first video because you not going to love it. but it'll give you perspective on how to film and edit your videos, you almost need and initial trial run!
