Salon Review (and free deal!)- Richie Arpino Salon
A few weeks ago, I went to Richie Arpino salon for a deep conditioning treatment and a haircut.
(Check out this blog for an amazing FREE deal on a deep conditioning treatment plus 20% off all other services now through the end of March at Richie Arpino- Jessica Shops Atlanta. I don't want to take any credit for this offer since it is through her site, so check out the blog and support Jessica Shops. It is a great site to bookmark).
I will say that I had a really positive experience. Everyone at the salon were very friendly and it wasn't snooty or intimidating, like many salons around the city who like to think they are tragically hip. The vibe was very warm- stylists and clients were all taking about TV and current events all together. It didn't feel like a "hair factory" which many larger salon are guilty of.
I actually had Richie himself cut my hair (I felt very special). He did a great job and listened to what I wanted. He did take off a little more than I expected at first, but overall I am really happy with the haircut. I would recommend checking them out if you need a new stylist.
Richie is known all over Atlanta and has been featured in a TON of magazines as well as a stylist for the TBS show Movie and a Makeover.
I also found out that he is a talented photographer and was impressed with his work behind the camera as well as his "work" on my head :)
