Richard fell in love with the hair at a young age, growing up around his Aunt and Grandfather who are hairstylists. He works to ensure an effortless beauty with each and every client, which compliments your natural features. He wants to give you a look that will sustain you from appointment to appointment and minimize style time without compromising the quality and fashion of your cut and color. Richard enjoys all forms of color, especially blonding, balayage, traditional foils, or just adding some sun-kissed dimension. Richard received his education at the Paul Mitchell school in St. Louis, Missouri. He’s completed two apprenticeships and has had extensive training in high end salons, with a focus on balayage and natural coloring. Richard is always aiming to further his education and continually cultivating his artform; he has utilized classes in color placement and corrective color with Goldwell, Redken and Solaris. Richard prioritizes communication with his clients, whether it’s listing their hair concerns,  or explaining step by step to his clients what he’s doing, and why he’s doing it. He wants you to feel as comfortable and at home in his chair as he does behind it. Richard and his husband moved here from St. Louis in 2014, having never visited the West coast, and have fallen deeply in love with everything Portland has to offer. When Richard isn’t in the salon he loves cooking, baking, traveling, and escaping into Oregon nature.
