Richard Dion’s hairstyling career began in Los Angeles in the mid-1970’s; a highly influential era widely regarded as the “Renaissance of Hair.” He had the privilege of obtaining an apprenticeship with the leading platform artist for Vidal Sassoon, whose creative genius led the way for the dramatic change in the world of hair.
The same methods Dion learned that brought Sassoon international acclaim, remain a timeless gold standard for the industry.
It wasn’t long before Richard’s talents helped him become a salon owner in the Los Angeles area. He owned two California salons before opening Dion’s South in Franklin, Tennessee. In all of his salons, both past and present, he trains his own apprentices in the classic Sassoon method as well as teaching his own systems. Richard continues to translate his methodology to current trends, always offering his clients something new and exciting.
Dion was consecutively voted Nashville’s TOP Stylist by the Nashville Scene’s Best of 2006 and Best of 2007 Reader’s Polls, and has been ranked in the top three numerous times. Dion’s South is ever-evolving as Richard artistically encourages, challenges, and educates his staff.
