Richard's of Wellesley

Proudly Serving Wellesley since 1963

In anticipation of getting a new job, I wanted to get a hairstyle/cut that was simple, pretty and maintained the length I wanted. Michelle is a nice person and a very experienced professional. She taught me some interesting things about hair and she made me feel comfortable. She was great about listening to my personal preferences and also suggested her professional opinions. The results was what I hoped for; a classic, simple cut that maintained length and body. The price was  very reasonable and totally worth it for the service and comfort.

Richard’s of Wellesley is a great little hair shop in Wellesley Center .
My hair is red, which can be a difficult color to get right, and they achieved a nice, natural shade of red.

I did a Vidal Sassoon class in Miami where I met Richard Foote and one of his Staff members. I saw the beautiful work Richard did on a female model’s hair. The Models are chosen at random to supply the students of the class with the haircut technique required for that segment. His staff member also showed significant talent. These are the people in the industry that deserve the utmost respect for going out of there way to bring the best of the best education in the industry back home to there salons

I came from Attleboro to Wellesley. It was easy to find. Michelle was very hospitable.  She explained each step that she was doing to complete my hair.  I love the results and very happy.  I made another appointment to go back. Thank you thank you thank you for everything!

I just moved to Wellesley from California and I was looking for a hairdresser that could match my color to my hair extensions.  I was so pleased to find Richard from Richard’s of Wellesley, he is up on all the latest hair trends from hair extensions to brazillian blowouts.  He matched my hair color to my extensions perfectly and spent hours to get the highlight and low light colors

I’m a teacher, so after all the summer sun and carefree hair days, I was looking for a color and a cut to get back to looking as a professional, responsible adult.  It’s also not realistic for me to get a color and/or haircut every 4 to six weeks when school is in session, so I wanted a color close to my natural haircolor, and a cut that would be easy to style- everything as low maintenance as possible.

The entire experience from start to finish was A+. I am fairly new to the area so recently decided to join Angie’s list, this hair salon read very well in the reviews so decided to give it a try. They were able to take me the same day, were very welcoming from the moment I stepped in the salon through to the last step out the door. Michelle was, as other wrote, just fantastic. I had not been to a stylist in a number of years because, quite honestly I was rarely ever happy with the experience. She explained what she was going to do and the finished product was beautiful. In addition, she was just lovely to chat with as was the owner Richard and I, for the first time since I can remember am actually looking forward to returning! I also enjoyed the laid back environment, such a nice contrast to the more chic salon which is also more often cold, uptight and impersonal. I would highly recommend this salon to anyone I know.

This was my first visit and Michelle seemed genuinely happy to have me as a new customer. Even though I was being serviced by Michelle, Richard made a point to introduce himself and welcome me to the salon. The salon ambiance is not nearly as glamorous as other downtown Wellesley salons (those salons can be very intimidating to deal with.) However, their prices are half of what their competitors charge. More important, they listen more and I am extremely pleased with the result. I was in the market for a new salon because of bad experiences at two other nearby competitors.

Michelle was great!! I requested a cut that would look professional and require NO maintenance. She asked the right questions about what I do and what I meant by no maintenance (was I willing to blow dry every day, etc. — NO). I got the cut just over a week ago and I am thrilled. I can wash it, put it up in a towel while I dress, brush it out, and it looks great. The length is perfect. I have found my new hairdresser!

I have been having my hair cut by Diane, of Richard’s in Wellesley, for more than ten years. I love going to this salon, and ALWAYS receive compliments on my hair. Richard is like a host to all clients, Diane does a great job of cutting, coloring, and advising.
