After visiting Montessori and Waldorf, we enrolled our son. We now have our 3, 5 and 7 year olds attending and it was the best decision we ever made! The kids love going to school! They heard French lullabies in preschool and now in the grades my son is learning Russian and Spanish. The children learn in a fun way and actually grasp the concepts and develop a love to learn. My son also has sensory issues, and the staff have always been very helpful and really look for the greatest good for each individual child. Not only is the curriculum excellent, but some of the outdoor play included bicycle lessons, safety and a field trip to see the Worlds in our own backyard, not to mention walks to Maymont, "work" at the Botanical Gardens and other community service. After three years, I cannot wait to see my children doing what I see the older kids doing! And the alumni seem to be doing well in top schools, a product of a Waldorf education! Thanks to all the teachers and staff! We love you, and so do our children!
Waldorf Education does not follow the same exact testing standards seen in conventional education. Waldorf is based on natural stages of human development – what's appropriate for the child and when. Yes, a 5-year-old child can sit at a desk and learn to read, but is this really benefiting them? Shouldn't their focus be on movement, play, teamwork, coordination, a moral compass, curiosity? This school focuses on the individual, not what a government test deems worthy. A parent may choose to leave if their child is not meeting conventional test standards at the exact time the test says they should – this choice is completely up to the parent. This choice does not make Waldorf Education wrong or bad, it is simply a different path. I want more for my daughter, I want her to be resilient, curious, and capable of tackling anything she dreams to do – carve her own path, not follow in line with the pack. I feel this is what RWS aims to achieve. My daughter, in her 3rd year here, is thriving.
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 would drive by this shop on my way to work every day and catch a look at the clients walking out or watch them do hair as I sit at the light. I would always say I am going to stop by and get me one of those styles. For my birthday my husband got me a gift certificate at Silk Hair Studio because he was driving by and saw a style he thought would look nice on me. When I went in there it was a nice and clean. I knew one of the stylist and a client. I Loved my new hairstyle and my new stylist. It didn't take long at all. I booked my 3 week appointment before I left. Great salon Good Parking Nice conversation.
My hair looks amazing after I got a cut and keratin treatment from Angie. This place is friendly and customer service orientated. The salon just had a makeover with its new ownership and looks 10 times better. There costumer base right now is the elderly , but are currently trying to get younger clients as well. I found this salon thanks to the lady I take care of who goes there to get her hair shampooed. I will be going there from here on out bc I have never had someone take such good care of me and took their time on doing my hair. I felt like a queen.
I am thankful every single day that my kids have an opportunity to go to RWS. I have two very different boys and the curriculum suits them both. I visited almost every private school in Richmond and knew I wanted my children to attend RWS. It is truly a blessing. My boys are taught respect and the joys of hard work. Besides main lesson the children have strings, music, art, languages, cooking, biking and much more. We have seen the benefits of a Waldorf education and can't wait to see how our children develop through this special school.

The first time I went to Christy was about Sept of 2012. My hair was damaged and in bad condition I felt. But now its great!! I saw 1 great review on yelp so I decided to give her try. She is patient and knows her stuff about hair. She does not rush and she listens to what I want. I'm greatful to have a great stylist now and great hair. I recommend that every gives Christy's a try and you wont want to go anywhere else!
I desperately needed a hair appointment in Richmond. I looked this place up on YP and was so happy I tried it out. Lenora made an appointment with me that fit my schedule. She was right on time and extremely efficient. This salon has a good atmosphere and great service. Parking is easy and safe. I love my hair and love even more that I wasn't in the salon all day for it to look great. Give this place a try!
Great unisex hair/nail salon and the hairstylist are really experienced and nice. The salon is new and very modern in decor. I go to Linn and she is awesome but the other stylist seem really good too. I have been to other salons in the area to only leave fine but eventually realize how uneven my hair is after washing at home. These stylist are experts in Asian hair for sure, highly recommend.
