Dreams do come true!
Renae wanted to become a hair stylist in high school but life took her in a different direction. She has been a Accountant for 35 years. When her daughters went to college she took the opportunity to go to Cana Virginia Beauty School. She joined the Hair Classics Associate program in August 2019. Having a background in accounting she was able to help Amy and Donna with bookkeeping. With the Lord guiding them every step of the way in October 2019, Renae purchased Hair Classics.  

She is so excited to serve you as a stylist and owner of  the salon.

Having been born and raised in this industry I feel it comes naturally to me. I graduated from the Virginia Hair Academy, recognized as Most Outstanding Student, in the year 1993. I returned to Galax to work for my mother Donna Higgins, who is an inspiration to me still today. I partnered with her and in 1997 became co-owner of Hair Classics Galax. With her at my side, we built an amazing team we now know as our salon family. My passion is hair and I am blessed to enhance people’s God given beauty daily. I look forward to the future growth of our salon. God truly blesses us.
