Meet Master Stylist and Salon Owner, Dréa Richard



Q. What is your name?

A. Dréa Richard

Q. Stylist Level?

A. Master Stylist, Makeup Artist, Owner

 Q. Describe your style in 3 words.

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

Barbering Workshop with Joey V at Andre Richard Salon Philadelphia

b2ap3 large mens hair philadelphia

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!

Organization giving the gift of confidence with makeovers


http www.fox29.comnewslocal newsorganization giving the gift of confidence with makeovers 

- 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.

Center City Hair Salon Donating Proceeds To Harvey Relief



PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A hair salon in Center City is cutting hair for Houston.

At the Andre Richard Salon, stylists are primping with a purpose.

“We can’t just pack our stuff and go there to volunteer, but we can do a lot with our two hands here,” said owner Drea Richard.

Richard promised to donate every penny from salon services between the hours of 2 and 5 to the Harvey relief efforts.


It’s a gesture that touched the heart of a customer, and Texas native, named Nicole.

“I was very pleasantly surprised, being from Austin, to find out that all the proceeds today are going to relief. That was actually really cool,” she said.

Stylist Kate Curran is working for free and couldn’t be happier about it.

“It’s just nice to be able to do something. You know, real life goes on here. This is the little that we can do,” said Curran.

And, she says, it’s nice to work in a place that cares so much about doing the right thing.
