Buckhead's Richie Arpino Salon is on the Move
Atlanta, GA, September 02, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Richie Arpino and his namesake salon are relocating to 550 Pharr Road, the iconic angular building across from the post office in Buckhead. The doors at the new location will open Wed., Sept. 7, with a party planned soon thereafter.

“We’re moving on up to keep up with everything in Buckhead going bigger, taller and higher,” says Arpino, who notes that the new space will include a photography studio and a few other add-on surprises. “Our current building is coming down to make way for development and I have always had an eye on 550 Pharr, so it seemed like a natural move.”

The stylist, photographer and bon vivant first opened his salon in 1980, moving a few years ago to another Pharr Road location, but always in Buckhead. The move will be marked by specials that celebrate over 35 years of working on the tresses of the famous and infamous.

New York-native Arpino trained under many of the country’s top stylists before bringing his shears South, where he has made Richie Arpino Salon one of the most honored salons in Metro Atlanta. He was twice named by Allure Magazine as “Atlanta’s Best Hair Cut,” and is frequently featured in fashion and style media.

The staff at Richie Arpino Salon is well versed in the latest trends in styling, haircuts, color, Keratin treatments and makeup. Whether you’re looking for a total make-over, a trim, or a blowout and makeup for a night on the town, Arpino and his staff will make you feel welcome and special and look like a million bucks. The salon prides itself on its warm, friendly, energetic atmosphere allowing clients to feel at home on their very first visit. Richie, et cie, are also available for wedding parties and special events. All this and free parking too!

By now Atlantans know that, in addition to being behind the chair, Arpino is also behind the camera. As a photographer, his work has appeared on magazine covers, in ads, fashion editorial and in the books of many models. His photography also is the centerpiece of an annual calendar, the proceeds of which benefit local charities, with focus areas that are close to his heart, including breast cancer and HIV/AIDS.
