A Message from a Rick Mosley Hair Customer…

A Color Correction Battle – and WIN!

My perfect highlights

My perfect highlights

For six years I did not highlight or color my hair. Then one day I realized it was time and I was ready to lighten it up just a little with a few blended blonde highlights. Easy, right? Or, so I thought…

My hair-coloring nightmare took me to four different salons in Central Iowa for appointments and six corrections. My hair went from natural and shiny to stripes of blonde, hues of orange, yellow blonde, and even to light brown. Then one day about six weeks into this hair color ordeal a friend suggested when I next saw someone’s hair that I liked, to just ask them where they got their hair done since it likely is a shop that has good technique and quality, as well as the ability to communicate and interpret what the client wants.

The next day when I was at the grocery store I saw a woman with perfect color. It looked natural, so I asked her where she had her hair done. She told me Rick Mosley Hair, so I called and made an appointment immediately.

At my first visit to Rick Mosley Hair, my colorist was finally able to give me the look I was hoping for – the look so many other colorists in town couldn’t provide. When I stood at the checkout counter after seeing my new hair miracle, I was so grateful that I had to choke back tears. She brought me back to being myself and it was done at a lower price than I expected.

When you go to Rick Mosley Hair, the overall experience is enjoyable. I am treated with respect, and the stylists are genuine and down-to-earth (yet, refined and polite).  I now go to Nicole for most of my services, and she has also provided wonderful, consistent experiences. Everything is perfect, even down to the details at the salon – capes are used to protect your clothing, the lighting is wonderful, the privacy is just right, and they make me feel ready for a night out on the town. Their Aveda products are great, yet not pushed on you. To sum it all up, I am relaxed and confident when I’m at Rick Mosley Hair.

The hair ordeal I described was two years ago, and I continue to return to this salon because not only did my impossible color mess get fixed, but the colorists at Rick Mosley Hair are able to consistently maintain my color and look. The salon meets me where I am financially. They listen to what I want and are able to decipher what I want from what I said – every time!

Rick Mosley truly cares for his employees and his clients. He invests in the education of his hair designers and color specialists. And, his team is natural at customer service. Thanks to the Rick Mosley Hair team. I am a client for life!

My Fifteen Minutes of Hair Fame

Read about Rick Mosley Hair client Katie Coyle’s experience on NBC’s “Ready for Love,” including how impressed the head stylist was with her hair


International stylists were impressed with Rick Mosley Hair client Katie Coyle’s hair while filming “Ready for Love.”

While I rarely watch television, I learned about the new reality dating show, “Ready for Love,” while watching “The Voice” with my kids about a year ago.  I saw a commercial to go online and apply, and thought what the heck!  I have never done anything like this before, but took a leap of faith that resulted in a Skype interview with the show’s casting agency.  The agents must have liked me, because they pitched me to NBC – and the network approved!

Overall, the process involved tons of paperwork and everything moved very quickly.  To make a long story short, last Memorial Day I found out that I was selected.  I only had five days to get everything together before flying to California where I met with a matchmaker who had to think I was a good fit for one of the show’s three bachelors.

After several days of interviews and photos, it was finally time for our stage days.  Call time was 4 a.m. and we were not done filming until 1 a.m.  Once Ben (one of the bachelors) chose me to continue, I moved into Pacific Palisades with eight other women.  We lived in the house that Rihanna recently purchased, which was pretty cool, but also full of drama.

My biggest compliment came when Pasquale, the head stylist from Italy, said he was not going to touch my hair (unlike the work he had to do on most of the other contestants).  He thought my color and cut were beautiful and instantly assumed I was from Los Angeles.  When I told him I was from Iowa, he nearly fell over.  (He also thought we grew potatoes here!)  His response was, “Well, they are doing a beautiful job in Iowa.”

I have been a loyal client of Rick Mosley Hair for at least 15 years, after a friend referred me.  I have tried other places, for convenience sake since I live an hour from the salon, but nobody can color or cut my hair the way Rick’s team does.

Overall, the show was a great experience.  I have made great memories and friends.  And, even though I didn’t find true love, I have no regrets and am proud of the way I represented Iowa.
