3. Meet Our Education Team
Ryan and Kate are not just Master Stylists at ARS. They are also Redken Artists. What does this mean? It means they have taken extensive classes at The Redken Exchange and go into other Redken Salons and teach the stylists how to cut/color/use products properly. I am so thrilled to annouce that they are taking education by the horns and leading all of the young/new (and OLD!) talent at ARS into their careers the right way.Read More about ARS education here
4. Grooming Bar
There is a little more happening then just hair color and blowouts @phillysalon. We have specialized in men's hair for quite some time. Now our barbering haircut doesn't have a gender specific title like Mens Haircut. In Philadelphia it really doesn't need to be gender specific. But barbering techniques, if from a barber or not are still classic techniques that we have mastered.FREE NECK TRIM
Three women last month received makeovers at a Gayborhood salon to boost their confidence in the workplace.
To celebrate 10 years in business, Andre Richard Salon partnered with Career Wardrobeto offer hair and makeup services to the latter’s clients. Career Wardrobe is a nonprofit social enterprise that provides professional-development programs as well as clothing at no cost via referral or for a small fee. The organization assists in boosting individuals’ confidence during their job search.
Drea Richard, owner of Andre Richard Salon, said the point of these makeovers was to make the women “look good and feel good.
“Not everyone knows how good they can look because they may not know how to do it and then once they get them there, they open up,” said Richard, who is trans.
Richard noted that the three women “lit up” after receiving their makeovers.
“The girls have been through a lot and the makeovers really kind of boosted them up and Career Wardrobe is amazing. They are really helping them.”
In addition to providing the space for the makeovers, Andre Richard Salon also donated 20 percent of proceeds from the salon’s blowout services to Career Wardrobe throughout December. The final donation amount was not available by presstime.
Jackie Schrauger, Career Wardrobe’s program director, said most of the organization’s clients are single moms who “don’t really get a chance to focus on themselves.”
“Taking time to go to a salon and spend money and time there on themselves instead of on their children is often something that they don’t get to do. It was really exciting that someone extended that kind of service to our clients and gave them that chance to feel special.”
The three clients — Nicole Brinson, Melissa McDermott and Tyiraeen Propst-Heath — were not available for comment but Schrauger said she thinks the makeovers on Dec. 19 “helped immensely.”
“From knowing these three clients pretty well, they have definitely faced some adversity in their lives — whether it’s personal or struggling to find a job that’s a good fit with a family-sustaining wage. I think having someone take the time to make them feel beautiful and focus on themselves for a little while instead of worrying about their kids or other things like that, I think was a huge boost.
“If you’ve ever gotten your hair done or gotten a really great new outfit, you leave feeling like a new person. I think all of them definitely got a boost of feeling a little more polished, a little more professional while feeling like they’ve been fussed over for a little while. All of those things definitely go a long way toward making someone feel a lot more confident and ready to get back out there.”
Almost a month after the makeover, the women are starting to see results. Schrauger said one of the clients is continuing to attend job-fair readiness workshops at Career Wardrobe and is continuing to network at various fairs.
Additionally, Career Wardrobe ultimately hired McDermott as a sales assistant.
“She’s part-time for now but hopefully in the future, we’ll be able to expand her hours. She certainly was confident in her interview with us,” Schrauger said. “I think having a boost from having had a makeover and a positive experience with us definitely gave her the confidence to help nail that job interview.”

A. Fun, Comfortable, I like to dress to create my mood
Q. Describe your first hair memory?
A. I was probably 6 years old and I saw the movie Grease. I loved the guys hair so much that I went into the bathroom and used a jar of vaseline to "Grease" my hair. I succeeded and copied the styles. Getting the vaseline out of my hair was a different story.
Q. How did you get your start in the beauty Industry?
A. After beauty school I worked at a $10 walk in salon on South Street. The first salon service I did was a red mohawk.
Q. What's your approach before you first start cutting or coloring someone?
A. I want to know who they are. Their lifestyle, their likes and dislikes about their hair and their look. What has worked for them in the past and how far they want to go with maintaining what we do to their hair.
Q. What's the most fun part of your job?
A. Results. Watching a client light up and love how they look. We all want to feel good. Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand. The other side of my job is growing and maintaining a team of stylist. Setting goals, creating education programs and watching their dreams come true is very rewarding.
Q. Most challenging?
A. I am my own worst critic, It is a constant journey to learn and conquer ones weakness in the industry. Remaining open minded to learning and growing is sometimes a challenge

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!
