Model - Actress - Entrepreneur
Rachal, a Chicago south side native attended Columbia College of Chicago. It was here that she surrounded herself with fashion designers, photographers and fellow fashion enthusiasts. Being submerged in the fashion industry eventually led to Rachal pursuing a career as a professional model.
As a woman of color she was met with many challenges but with grace and determination she broke through those barriers and became a successful model and actress. She booked national campaigns for brands such as Coca-Cola, McDonalds, BMW, Ebony, Ashro, Verizon, and Chrysler to name a few.
In 2003 Rachal’s experience in the fashion industry and her love for vintage led her to open the online vintage boutique Quirky Finds. The company’s mission is to reconnect people with their past through vintage fragrances, handbags, fashion and other vintage vanity accessories. Quirky Finds is one of the world’s leading websites for vintage, antiques and collectibles.
As a model, Rachal spent many years perfecting her hair and beauty regimen. She wore her natural curls years before there was a natural hair movement. There were no Youtube videos, tutorials or products for natural hair. There was only trial and error. This led to her mixing up natural ingredients to create her own products. Although Rachal’s life was very full with being a professional model and an established business owner, there was still something inside of her that kept pulling at her to share her hair products with the world.
In 2016 she launched the natural hair and beauty company Lil Little. Lil Little’s mission is to create products with a purpose. Products that are free of Parabens, Mineral Oils, Silicones and Petroleum. Products that are made with integrity, good energy and love. Rachal hopes that through Lil Little, she can help women and young girls embrace the power of their natural beauty.
