Meet the Owner

Ayoola Bakare is a successful entrepreneur, model, and hair stylist. Ayoola started her career as a highly sought after model, dancer, and actress. During her modelling career, Ayoola had the opportunity to work with both fashion and hair specialists such as Toni & Guy, ORS Hair Care, Motions Hair Products, Luster’s 3N1 Relaxer, Junior Green, Afro Hair & Beauty Live Shows, Jamie Stevens, Anne Veck, and Charlotte Mensah. It was through these life experiences as well as her education in Performing Arts that she owned her creativity, developed her personality and gained the drive and skills to launch her own business, Rare Look, in London.
Founding Rare Look was a natural fit after her many years of working as a hair stylist while
modelling, studying at University, and training for her level 2 & 3 in hairdressing and barbering at the Joshua Galvin Academy. She currently has the immense privilege to work as a stylist at the Charlotte Mensah Hair Lounge on Portobello Road. This has been an amazing experience because she’s been able to mentor under Charlotte Mensah to learn even more about the beauty industry as well as to gain inspiration from the Hair Lounge’s clients, many of whom are entrepreneurs, leaders in business, celebrities, and all around strong women.
