Joey showed the ARS team some tricks of the trade where it deals with barbering techniques. From gender neutral folk to men and women alike they all qualify for the old school barbering methods. Maybe its a bald fade, undercut, brow trim or a good old fashion mohawk these techniques will eventually apply to the every day person on some level. You may not need a mohawk but a balanced haircut is a must!
The team rallied around and observed while asking questions about the tools of the trade and when to use them.
From trimming the top, fading, and carving in that temporpary part Joey covered all the bases!
PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - A local organization is giving back with the gift of confidence by providing makeovers to people in need of a confidence boost.
Before we could even ask the first question it was clear that talking about overcoming obstacles during the holidays was going to be hard for Nicole Brinson.
“I had my three kids which my husband wanted, we’ve been together since I was ten years old, only person I was ever with. When I was 27 he passed away from an asthma attack when he was 28,” Nicole explained.
“I suffered from addiction trying to numb my pain, I also felt like I wasn’t worth nothing so I didn’t want to be here. I thought my kids were better off with somebody else,” she added.
But, Nicole found people who cared about her. She worked with Career Wardrobe who helps with job training and professional clothing and this holiday season, things are getting better.
So what do you give someone who’s had a rough year, worked hard to overcome and looking to start 2018 on a positive note? Drea Richard of Andre Richard salon says maybe you give them hope.
“I’m doing it because this is the best way I know how to give back. Giving the gift of beauty,” Drea explained.
Drea and her Salon decided to give makeovers today to Melissa, Tyiraeen and Nicole. They all worked closely with Career Wardrobe and are all now ready to pursue a career. And what do you need to start that career or ace that job interview?
All of the recipients said confidence goes a long way.
Everyone’s story wasn’t as tragic as Nicole’s. Tyireaan wants to start a business and needed an edge, Melissa just wants some stability. But as superficial as it may seem to some, you could see the transformation they went through in just a few hours.
Drea said your appearance can change everything.
“You kind of clean some of the clutter out of the way and you get to see who you really are,” Drea said.
The before and after pics were startling and the positive feelings of all of the young women put a smile on everyone’s face.
Drea Richard and Career Wardrobe in some small way helped these three women on their way with the gift of confidence, For Goodness Sake.

Ryan Rodgers - Master Stylist @phillysalon gave us a detailed class on the lightening systems offered by Redken and at ARS along with some foil highlighting techniques. Ryan is a Redken Artist.
That means when he is not with us creating magic behind the chair at ARS he is visiting salons in the tri-state area teaching Redken hair color and products to industry professionals.
Some team members of ARS gathered on a Sunday evening bringing their talent and questions to a foil blonding workshop.
The team broke into groups with specific assignments to gather information about their topic of blonding. Powder, oil, and cream lighteners are all a part of Redken and André Richard Salon's hair bleaching and hair lifting tools.
After each group gathered and researched they presented the facts they pulled from the Redken guide book.
Then we applied the color in an assigned highlighting pattern that Ryan gave them.
In the end we were able to present questions and answers to be properly armed with what type of lightening product we will use and the foil pattern best suited for YOU the best client for the best hair salon in Philadelphia!
