Update — Richard

Remember Richard?


His dilemma about whether to keep growing out or throw in the towel for the summer was made into a class project for the Sono Academy, one of the hottest new salon schools in the Northeast.  The project included not only his haircut, but color and styling advice.

Drumroll, please!


Academy Director Thea Tsiranides cut Richard’s hair similar to the winning Option #1 and enhanced his shade with a demi-permanent color by Wella. According to Thea, the haircut gives Richard “a more progressive look” and can be styled either flat to the head or in a “messy, spiky” fashion. Thea used Rusk Wired Flexible Styling Cream to create the look.

You look fantastic, Richard!

    Clearly Richard is much happier after the class project was finished! You know, image is everything…

    Hi All! we are so pleased with Richards look, and I think he’s enjoying it as well. I would like to clairify that Rena Tsopanides was the student who created Richards fresh new style… It has been such an inspiration, the students want to do a featured monthly makeover! Thank you for the great experience, it has been alot of fun!

    Sorry Richard, it looks good but I really liked #2.
    The good news is hair grows back.
    Will you go for #2 this winter?
    Hope so!

    Looks great Richard! Option 1 would have been my vote too! And, it is nice to put a face with the voice.
