I had been wanting to get my hair done for awhile, but I am picky and don't really have a stylist who I trust to do a whole new look. My friends raved about Mango, said they were kinda expensive, but they had nice products, great hair dressers and good results after. So for my birthday I asked my dad for a gift certificate to get my hair completly done over. I went in for a consultation first so I could get a price. The front desk girl greeted me with a big smile, seemed to check me in, had me fill out a little information sheet and gave me a small tour. She offered me something to drink, pointed me in the direction of the bathroom if I needed it and told me a little about the products they used. Then I waited and waited and waited... I thought I had possibly gotten the time wrong so I didn't freak out. but after 45min of nobody saying anything I went to find out what happened and apparently the first girl who gave me a wonderful greeting forgot to check me in! The other front desk girl seemed genuinely sorry, gave me a little gift bag with 3 sample sized hand lotions (that smell great) I had to go to work and couldn't stay any longer. I rescheduled for the next day and was seen as soon as I walked in. I saw Crystal Clark the next week to do everything we talked about. Cut, color, highlights and style. I told her what I liked, then said to please do what she felt would look best, because what I may want will not look the best on my skin tone. I have dark brown very curly hair and very fair skin (british and german here). She touched up my new growth and added some beautiful honey colored high lights, gave me bangs that I wanted, blew my hair out straight and I looked completly different : ) I love my new look, and I have never ever had sooo many compliments on how I look! She did a great job listening to me for what I wanted then mixed it well with what would be best for me and my lifestyle. I know she is kinda expensive, but I will continue going back to her because she is worth it!

If you know me, you've seen at least one; I have been infamous for years now for my creative, yet horrible self-cuts...I don't know what compells me to cut it in the first place, but I know exactly what compelled me to walk into Virginia Hair last week, begging for a last-minute appt. I'm NOT 19 any more and I work in a fairly conservative environment, and I could tell by the look on her face that she felt a little sorry for me. Now, I'm going to tell you right now that yes, Virginia is a dear friend of mine. But that doesnt change the fact that what she did in just 30 minutes on my mostly dry hair was nothing short of magical. I'm not exaggerating, wait until I post pictures. If you are a stressed-out, strapped-for-time Type A personality type, Virginia is not the stylist for you. She goes the mile for everyone who sits in her chair, meaning she may fit someone in while your color is processing, for example. Well, that's Miss Type A's loss. Virginia is amazing; and that's how I looked when I walked in to work at 7am the next morning. Thank you, honey!
I had my first time experience at this hair salon. I do belive it is a culture shock when you first arrive. And don't let the crowd of customer discourage you from going in the shop as i was. There were about fifty customers ahead of me and i was at the shampoo bowl within ten minutes of walking in. The assembly line way of how they work with their customers was shocking as well. Everyone that got their hair styled came out looking as though they just received a relaxer when really they hadn't. Including myself. Thier process was different than most other salons and could easily be copied by other salons as well. They're key ingredient for their process...... is heat. The roller set you get and sit under the dryer til dry, and then the extreme heat that they use to straighten your roots. How painful the heat was, was it worth it? Yes! Would I go again? Most definately. Plus, no other salon around the tri-cities, richmond, henrico, or charlottesville area can beat their prices.
Ronnie is just amazing! He's thoughtful, he listens, he's honest, he's easy to talk to, and he cares about making you look your best. I'd moved from one hairsalon to another looking for someone who could cut fine, thick hair. When I first visited Ronnie, I had been wearing my hair "up" in a clip for a long time, having suffered repeated horrors with texturing scissors. Needless to say at my age the style wasn't flattering or professional. Ronnie listened to me and we had a thoughtful conversation of what style would look nice. Having a "real" conversation was unbelievable by itself. I let him take over and the results were fabulous! I have a "real" hairstyle now. I get a consistent cut every time and continuously get compliments on my hair. One friend I hadn't seen in some time called my hair "runway hair"! I've been loyal to Ronnie and Escada ever since, at least 3 years now. Go see Ronnie, be ready for honest feedback, and let him work his magic. You won't be disappointed.
Andrew is such a fantastic hairstylist! I absolutely LOVE how he highlights and styles my hair. I definitely recommend him for anyone that is looking for some gorgeous highlights! I am extremely particular about my hair and I can honestly say in the year that I have been having Andrew do my hair I have not been disappointed a single time! i had him color/cut my hair for my wedding this summer and my hair has never looked better. :) I just wish I would've been getting married in Richmond so he could have styled it for my big day as well. And last but not least, Andrew is an absolute sweetheart! The next time you need to get your hair done...highlights, cut, styling, whatever you may need, ask for Andrew and you will not be disappointed, I promise! :)
After years of going to some of the Richmond/Midlothian area “upscale” salons, I made my first visit to Escada Salon. Wow! I came in with some issues with my hair involving varying degrees of color. Ronnie Parrish completely understood what I wanted and made it happen. I was beyond pleased, and their prices are much more reasonable than the others who tout themselves as the best, but actually are mediocre. Escada Salon is gorgeous, spacious and bright; the staff both warm, courteous and friendly. Aside from a superior color job (with foil highlights), cut and waxing, this place makes you feel at home…like they are part of your family. I would highly recommend everyone to give them a try. You won’t go back to your former salon!
First of all, I have to say that the previous review is ridiculous! There is not one stylist in Escada that is rude, especially Beth! She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met! Seems to me that someone wanted to be mean that day and decided to take it out on an entire salon! Sure hope she doesn't have the nerve to show up again! That being said, Ronnie and the entire staff at Escada are amazing! I always feel welcomed by everyone and have a great time! Ronnie has been my stylist for years and I would recommend him to anyone! In fact, at least 6 of my friends also love Ronnie and the staff. It truly is a wonderful experience each and every time!!! If you want to feel pampered and beautiful call Escada!!!
At the Escada Salon I was pampered like a superstar. I love the dedication my stylist named Kandi, takes to please me. All of the employee's at the Escada Salon are trained professional's and the decor' has the look and feel of a tranquil day spa. I love how Kandi took the time to massage my scalp during the shampoo process. My family has come to love this salon and by far The Escada Salon Inc. of Richmond is thethe best place I have ever had my hair styled at! Thank-you Kandi for making me feel pampered! The management is top knotch and very knowledgable! I am a" Very" pleased Customer and I and my family look forward to our future visits! Thank's again, Keith, Cindy, and Troy
Looking for a solution for hair issues led us straight to this intelligent, knowledgeable woman who has a true affinity for African-American hair care, a location that has this authentic old-school vibe, and a connection to her clients that is so refreshing in a world where it's all about money without consideration to customer service. As a spectator to my sister's service being rendered, I am impressed beyond description by the level of professionalism - while treating her client like someone she's known for years, an old friend. Our very first visit was complete satisfaction, and we're back again. So glad to have found her, a pleasure to get to know!
I have been going to Tammy Kidd for over 20+ years for my hair care. I know I am not alone in her loyal clientele following She is the best technician in Virginia ! I have traveled and been to some top notch stores. The entire staff is very accomodating too. If you cannot schedule an appointment with your favorite, there are at least three other qualified technicians to step in. They are all color, cut and hair care experts. 5 OUT OF 5 STARS. Pleasant surroundings quick parking, easy to find, and very good pricing. The best professionals in Richmond, from the greeters to the shampoo experts. They treat their clients well.
