Voted best blow-dry and style in Marin county, along with an extensive client list of politicians and tech gurus, Casey Richards has decided to bring his talents to Southern California. He began his journey into the beauty business based on his own experiences as a loyal client growing up. He realized looking your best on the outside, makes you feel your best on the inside. Richards was very much aware how much confidence it gave him to feel beautiful and vowed to strive in helping others to feel the same way. As an artist he is naturally drawn to the love of creating. He acknowledges the importance of good color, but goes on to say “Behind the chair, you are one of two things, a sculptor or a painter, of course some are exceptional at both, but I prefer to sculpt with my cutting and styling.”Casey Richards' services include cutting, styling, smoothing, and extensions. After a thorough consultation, he identifies the client's best attributes and in turn creates a look that will best accentuate those features. Richards finds that his specialty is in cutting “to me, the craft is in the cut, and I love seeing the finished look.”
