Welcome To RIO Hair Studio
RIO Hair Studio is an established, award-winning and full-service hair salon that has been providing outstanding customer service since 1990. Misty Burbridge and her business partner Shannon Hogg founded the salon in the Lakewood area of Jacksonville, starting with just six chairs and six stylists. In 2000 Misty became the sole owner of RIO Hair Studio. The growth since then has been tremendous, thanks to an ever-expanding base of loyal customers. In 2008, after 18 years in Lakewood, RIO Hair Studio made the move to its present location in Tapestry Park. RIO’s clients say they love the new convenient location with 12 chairs and 16 stylists – and they appreciate being closer to St Johns Town Center and all its amenities.
One major factor for RIO Hair Studio’s success, is the emphasis on continuing education, led by our two Redken Artist Educators, Sami Skinner and Laura Carmichael. Rio’s philosophy is to set specific goals for the stylists to help them grow professionally and personally on a 13-year career track. This focus on professionalism ensures that each stylist is trained, certified, and always up to date on the latest styles, procedures and processes. Our professional stylist is equipped to provide the best service to clients – and each client can be assured they will receive the best advice about precision cuts, world class hair-color and the most useful products, appropriate treatments and techniques to keep their hair healthy and strong.
By treating stylists like family, Rio knows they will treat their customers like family. At RIO Hair Studio, the focus is always on the clients and their needs. Each guest is greeted warmly by the receptionist and quickly offered a variety of refreshments. Customers have a chance to look through style magazines or spend time consulting with their stylist to confirm the services they need. They also have the opportunity to shop and buy Redken, Pureology and Baxter of CA products.
Whether you are looking for a routine shampoo, cut, and blow dry; or you have a special occasion you want to celebrate with a more lavish style; or you want to completely change your look with a dramatic bob, bangs or new color, the stylists here can accommodate your request. The goal is to help you relax and enjoy the services as we help you feel more beautiful, sexy, and confident than you did when you walked into the salon. Book your next appointment soon!
