Dréa Richard

Dréa Richard Baldini's passion for color, beauty and style began as a child, when she hosted Halloween parties complete with elaborate costuming and makeup. Friends and neighbors lined up at Dréa's house for the annual festivity. Often found with crayon in hand, Dréa always colored outside the lines.


Upon graduating from Empire Beauty School and completing her teacher's license, Dréa worked in local and national television including Celebrity Hair Styling, Ambush Makeover, Nice Package and Mating Season as well as a consultant for MAC Makeup.


In March of 2007, Dréa opened her namesake salon. Despite her colorful resume, her vision was to create a drama-free environment with the best Stylists in the City to help her realize this dream. He has achieved her goal. Dréa Richard Salon is a warm and inviting salon with an understated elegance that's come to be expected in its Washington West neighborhood. Dréa Richard Salon specializes in the latest advances in hair technology using the most exquisite natural treatments available.


In 2012, Dréa launched ARS by Andre Richard Salon, a signature line of hair products. That same year, Andre Richard Salon was named Best of Philly by Philadelphia Magazine's GPhilly. In 2013 Yelp.com named Andre Richard Salon in its Top Five Salons List.


In August 2014, Dréa opened ARS Parlour, a new concept hair and beauty salon in Center City Philadelphia. ARS Parlour caters to those who desire an ultra-focused environment focused on giving clients the world's best technology and tools to bring out the natural beauty and glow of their hair.


With more than 20 years of experience, Dréa continues her passion for the craft and artistry of beauty. An Upper Darby native, Dréa lives in Center City Philadelphia and is active in the Philadelphia community especially with the Philly Pride, Philadelphia Animal and Welfare Society (PAWS) and the William Way Community Center.

Best Hair Stylist In PhiladelphiaRemaining the best hair salon in Philadelphia requires action, so Rachid - Master Stylist and Artistic Director went to Paris to brush up on some technique and grab a few more while he was there.

 

When I asked Rachid what was covered most in the class he answered this:

"First I was the only one trained with two trainers and 1 assistant. The title of the training was global beauty meaning that it's not just about hair it's about a great consultation to determine which cut color and balayage will emphasize the woman's beauty. Cuts are pushed to the edge, colors are reinvented and balayage comes to emphasize movement and symmetry! The training was about a personalized look!"

b2ap3_thumbnail_lady-gaga-bob-haircut-2.jpgWe are so happy that Lady Gaga finally cut off all of that hair and went with a classic look. Bob haircut; classic, trendy and timeless. This haircut takes nerve for sure. However with the proper precision cut, knowledge of product, and what styling tools to use why wouldn't it work?

We pride ourself in not only knowing the latest trends but we value the classics as well. Bob lengths should be determined by a few key points, hair texture, face shape, and your life style. Most importantly, the big question...How willing are you to style it with product and/or styling tools?

A consultation is important so we can determine what length your bob should be. Should it be angled, blunt, stacked? Schedule a consultation and we will tell you the solid truth. 

 

Call 215.735.1590 or schedule online

http://www.phillymag.com/philadelphia-wedding/2015/01/08/loews-philadelphia-hotel-giving-away-wedding-heres-enter/


You guys, the Loews Hotel right here in Philly has decided that they would like to give away a wedding this year to one deserving local couple—so we said we’d help them find just the right one!

Here are all the details on what they’re looking for, how to enter, and what’s included in the wedding package:

    • The folks at Loews would like to bestow this wedding on a local couple who has "shown their love to the City of Brotherly Love or surrounding counties by giving their time or making a change."
    • The wedding is valued at $20,000. Here's what you get:

        • A wedding ceremony and celebration at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel that must take place sometime in the year 2015 (based on availability).

        • A bridal gown for the bride, of her choice and up to $4,000, selected from Old City's so-pretty Lovely Bride.

        • Entertainment provided by the very fabulous Eddie Bruce.



        • One full set of awesome lash extensions (along with a brow-grooming session) from Philly's Deneen Marcel Lashes.

        • One hour of life-coaching for you guys from Positive Psychology expert Pax Tandon, to start this thing off right.


        • Photography by Jennifer Childress; 800 edited, high-resolution images, an online gallery for 60 days, and an engagement session—all valued at $3,600.

        • Videography by First Floor Films (eight hours of coverage, plus a 10-minute edited video of the day, along with the full ceremony and main events of the reception delivered as raw footage), valued at $3,000.

        • Jill Magerman, a life cycle celebrant and wedding officiant, will work closely with the winning couple to get to know them, and then work their 'love story' into a customized ceremony full of the rituals, customs and readings the couple wishes to include, valued at $700.

        • Your wedding photos included in a future issue of Philadelphia Wedding.
    •  To enter, go here, click on 'weddings,' and then click on 'Win a Loews Wedding,' and email your submission to the email address provided. (Only one submission per couple.) They want to hear in 500 words or less what you and your to-be have done to make Philly a better place.
    • Submissions will be taken until March 13, 2015, and they'll announce the winner on April 3rd.

And that's the deal!  Pretty good one, right?

Hotheads Hair Extensions are now being featured at Andre Richard Hair Salon Philadelphia!

 

 


Hotheads Hair Extensions are human hair, adhesive weft extensions that are applied without the need for tools or heat. Our goal was to create a product for the salon professional that was simple…. fast…. and extraordinary; we have done just that.

Hotheads Hair Extensions are uniquely designed to lay completely seamless and undetectable in the hair. Manufactured with amazing quality human remy hair with the cuticle in tact allows our hair to be reapplied up to 3 times, while still looking and feeling amazing. Clients will get 8 to 10 weeks of wear from each application. Hotheads is an extraordinary revolution to the hair industry.

For clients, our products have completely changed the way their hair looks and how they feel about themselves. For stylists, this has completely evolved their extension business.
