I have made it my business to help others look better since 1980-something by being a listener, and using my talent and skill to give the client what they want. If you're happy, I'm happy. I consider my strong points to be precision and texture cutting, styling, round brush blowouts, weekly roller sets, single or multi-dimensional color, splash highlighting and corrective color.  I also do a nice perm and am proficient in the Keratin Smoothing System of hair relaxation for calming unruly, curly and frizzy hair.

In addition to schooling locally, I have studied in New York with top French companies such as Marcel Contier's Laboritoire' Biosthetique and Peter Kerschhagel's Aestelance, both natural and holistic approaches to haircare techniques and products, and also Patrick Aley's Phytologie and Horst Reckelbacher's Aveda lines.  I am currently using a natural line from Taiwan called Esuchen.

My color lines have been Schwarzkopf of Germany, Framesi of Italy, Redken, Aveda, Pravana (created by former Redken executive, Steve Goddard), and currently I am using Rusk.

I have attended yearly educational seminars to study the late French Biochemist, Marcel Contier's teachings and philosophy. Contier' was a pioneer in the holistic approach to hair and skin care.  His products were in keeping with his overall and far-reaching philosophy of healthy skin, scalp and hair through the use of all-natural products as much as possible. His teachings continue to be an important part of my own life, along with proper nutrition, regular excrcise, sufficient hydration, ample rest and spiritual renewal.

Out of respect for my clients, I may not be able to answer calls, but if you leave a voicemail or text me, I will get back with you as soon as possible. 

I accept all major credit cards. There is an additional $2 merchant fee for charges.

Richard is fabulous! I have been coming to him for 12 years and he has never disappointed! MH

Rich has colored and styled my hair for the last 30 years. After every visit my hair looks great! Now, for my hair to look great is no minor miracle. I have 12 years of school pictures to prove that it takes a genius to figure out exactly how to cut it so it lays correctly. [I'd post them, but they are way too embarrassing!] I've also dozens of horror experiences with other stylists during my adult life...the results that pretty much ruin your life for at least a month. Bottom line...Rich really is a "hair whisperer." Plus, he's a truly down-to-earth, great guy!

Richard is amazing! He has cut my daughters hair both to chin length and even shorter ear length and they have been fantastic styles. Very well layered and styled, and easy to maintain on daily basis! My daughter loves his work and our family thinks it's gorgeous!

Richard is wonderful! I’ve never received more personalized and professional service. He listens to your ideas about the cut or color, and then gets it right every time. Thank you Richard!
