Richard Salon

Richard Daly, owner of Richard Salon in Smithtown NY, is a Master Stylist, 25-year veteran hairdresser, and passionate professional who wanted a closer connection and better education from his product partner. In 2011 he became a flagship Ambassador and his business has gone from strength to strength. It’s time to catch up with Richard Daly and his team of creative stylists. . . . 
Q1: How many stylists do you now employ?
We continue to grow. We now have 12 members of staff. 
Q2. How many years you've been in business and what’s the journey been like? 
We've just celebrated our 9th anniversary, July 26th and we are looking forward to our big 10th anniversary party next summer. It’s been a great journey with a lot of learning and hard work. We’ve become part of the community and we were voted ‘Best Hair Salon on Long Island’ this year. 
Q3. What has been your greatest achievement within your business?
My greatest achievement personally was opening my salon and going from 1 stylist (myself) with 1 assistant, to being recognized by Salon Today Magazine as one of the top 200 salons in North America for 4 years in a row. We were also honored on the cover of the 16th annual Salon Today 200 edition in recognition of our salons continued growth. 
Q4. What has been your most exciting time as an ARROJO Ambassador Salon?
Having been an ARROJO Ambassador salon since 2011, we couldn't be happier with the level of education we've received from Nick and the team at ARROJO. There’s a constant stream of new trends and techniques. One of the best events we've attended has definitely been the numerous EXPO events held in NY and other states, as well as the enormous benefit provided by the monthly ARROJO Happy Monday's education classes that our team has been attending and learning from for years now. 
Q5. Anything else that you would like to say?
We were one of the first few salons in the country to offer ARROJO product 
exclusively as a Flagship Salon and the rewards have been incredible. This year to date our ARROJO product sales are up over 31%, which I can positively attribute to the inspiration, connectivity, and professional partnership we have established with ARROJO.
If you live, work, or travel though Long Island we highly recommend Richard Daly and his wonderful team of talented artists for all your hair care services. Visit the Richard Salon website, here.
