I just wanted to tell you that spending time at RIO Hair Studio is a luxury that I treasure. Not only do you make my hair look absolutely fabulous, but also you give me helpful, informative advice on the best styling techniques and products to use that keep my hair healthy. My crazy hair is wiry, oftentimes frizzy and coarse, but you’ve taught me how to make it soft, manageable and shiny. I love the color gloss you use…so gorgeous! Also, I feel like I can go to any of the awesome stylists. Everyone makes me feel like a VIP when I’m there. As soon as I get there, there’s a Diet Coke or a glass of wine…depending on my mood! Thank you so much for giving me a haven from the hectic work day. When I leave RIO Hair Studio, I feel special and beautiful…a winning combination for my confidence!

I’ve been a RIO Hair Studio client for the last few months on a regular basis.  Everyone who works there is very friendly and immediately they make the customers feel relaxed.  My hair stylist is just FABULOUS!  She listens to what her clients want, and she is very knowledgeable about the Redken line.  Her haircuts and blowouts are amazing and they will last for days.  I could not imagine going to anyone else!

New to Jacksonville eight years ago, I had tried a few salons for color and ended up for about a year with a stylist who I thought was doing a great job – until my hair started falling out because of extreme over-processing.  RIO Hair Studio and owner Misty Burbridge were referred to me by a new friend I had met at the beach. I have been a client ever since, and my hair is very happy for this. RIO Hair Studio has a casual yet very professional environment.  I leave there feeling beautiful inside and out.  The staff is so gracious and friendly that you immediately feel comfortable – so  comfortable, in fact, that I have had other hairdressers at RIO Hair Studio color my hair if Misty is unavailable and it is perfect every time.  All the stylists work hard to stay current with hair and colors and cuts and they have three Certified Redken Colorists, which is like being a doctor in hair color, and I am proud to say Misty is one of them. I love RIO Hair Studio and always look forward to my next appointment!

I have always had  great experiences at RIO Hair Studio!  The stylists are all fun-loving,  upbeat and professional!   I am greeted with smiles and hugs and refreshment!  The atmosphere is similar to most shops, laid back and friendly – enjoy! And be sure to ask your stylist about the great products they use and sell  – they are a MUST HAVE if you’re going to  look this fabulous every day!  I am partial to Megan Butler – she is an amazing young woman with a beautiful spirit – she will listen to what you want and make suggestions/adjustments based on her education and years of past experience ….she is NOT afraid to take chances if you’re looking  for a big change! – Cindy Butler


I’ve been a client at RIO Hair Studio for almost two years. I was referred by a co-worker to my stylist in September of 2012. I remember meeting my stylist for the first time and instantly loving her! She had just started working there herself. Ever since that first appointment, I’ve gotten to know her better and adore her even more, both as a friend and as my hair stylist. She listens to what I say and gives me her expert opinion on what will work and what won’t. She wants me to be 100 percent happy with the end result and I know she’ll do whatever it takes to accomplish it. I always walk out of RIO Hair Studio feeling and looking beautiful! Although I haven’t worked with any of the other stylists at RIO Hair Studio, they all seem very pleasant and friendly. I’m always greeted when I walk in the door and I feel very comfortable while I’m here. I feel confident saying RIO Hair Studio has a client for life! – Theresa Hice

I come from Europe where fashion for the average person is a big deal. I was used to getting great, inexpensive haircuts that fit the shape of my face. That was a huge problem for me here. I tried so many different stylists and salons and was consistently disappointed and frustrated. I would count down the days until my next trip to Europe just so I could get my hair cut correctly. One day at work, I was speaking to a colleague and noticed she had the best blow-out I had seen since being in the United States. That’s when I found out at about RIO Hair Studio. I tried to make an appointment with my coworker’s stylist, but that person was not available when it was convenient for me. So in desperation to fix my hair, I took a chance and made an appointment with a different stylist. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made and the best experience I have ever had in a hair salon. Not only did the stylist fix the mess I had, she took time to consult with me to discuss all my options and concerns. I am so happy I have found someone I can trust who will listen to what I really want and will go above and beyond to achieve it. RIO Hair Studio is a gorgeous and classy establishment and the people who work there will make you feel very comfortable and welcome. I now recommend my stylist and RIO Hair Studio to all my friends and have had several converts. Thank you for making me feel beautiful. I am happy that I don’t have to wait to go to Europe for my next great haircut or style. – Sonja
