We offer a full range of holistic salon services as well as hair care consultations and product tutorials for every age – from toddler to senior.

What Makes Us Original

Our business is personal. It started with our Founder Rachel’s quest to understand and heal her dry, damaged curls. Over the course of ten years, she personally formulated a full line of natural hair care products and embarked upon a systematic study that included of over 1,000 heads of hair. (Yes, she is a tiny bit obsessed!). Eventually, she was able to identify patterns that linked hair type to product preference. These hair type ‘signatures’ became the basis for our Full Spectrum System™, a professional guide to moisture balancing™ and hair health.

Our Products

We believe that the basis for building hair health is a product regimen that supports proper hair and scalp ‘nutrition’ with natural ingredients, a balanced pH, and hair-type specific solutions.  All of our products are custom formulated by Rachel, our Brand Founder, to provide hairtype-specific solutions that optimize and enhance your natural texture.  We stand behind our commitment to hair health with a complementary Seven Point Assessment™ (hairtype diagnostic) for all new clients.

The Hair Behind the Brand

Original Moxie's founder, Rachel, has curly hair and had her own unique journey, which is why she started the brand.

Original Moxie Founder, Rachel Blistein, knows firsthand what it’s like to struggle with your hair.  She fought with her naturally curly hair for the first 30+ years of her life and only learned to embrace it after understanding how to give it the moisture it so desperately craved. The entire business grew from her quest to help others understand their own hair and embrace what makes them original.  She maintains an active hand in the business and continues to personally formulate each new product while crafting the brand’s approach to understanding, cutting, and styling diverse textures.  You can read more about Rachel’s Hair Story here.
