Hurricane Harvey — and the storms that followed it — hit the U.S. hard. But as Rach says, "With heartache also comes the story of so many real-life heroes."

And that's especially true with this story!

After Harvey hit Houston, 60-year-old hairstylist Christal Mercier rounded up more stylists and hit a local shelter, where they offered haircuts and fresh styles in an attempt to boost spirits.

Because, as Christal says, "You may have gone through the storm, but you don't have to look like you went through a storm." (You can see Christal and the ladies in action above!)

We love that motto — and so does Rach! Which is why she invited Christal to our studio for a special surprise. See her amazing reaction in the video below!
