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.”
With summer officially ended, I asked Casey what he predict to be in style for hair fashion during this fall 2015 season “I think fall is going to be full hair and full of movement. I don’t think the LOB is going anywhere anytime soon. Everyone is growing out their hair. We’ll see a lot of medium length with more texture. And of course we will see fall tones for hair color. Everyone will go a shade darker”.
Casey Richards believes that hair is the first thing that people see and so it must make a statement. It is with his extreme attention to detail, patience, and dedication to every client that he has become a valued resource in the beauty industry. When he is not in the salon, Casey is an accomplished equestrian and has found it to be a deep inspiration “I used to run patterns, the motions and movements of the horse and the interpersonal connection that you have with the animal is a beautiful feeling”.
