Richard Bird

Richard is a native of Wales where he apprenticed before moving to London to join Steiner’s Hairdressing Group, servicing clients in both London and cities around Britain. Richard then moved on to manage salons aboard the S.S. Canberra and Cunard’s luxurious Queen Elizabeth II which afforded him the opportunity to travel the world.

Arriving in the U.S., Richard spent 12 years at the exclusive Golden Door Spa as Director of Beauty & Massage — serving its upscale clientele from around the world. He particularly enjoyed working with his team on hair and makeup for numerous magazine photo shoots.

As his career progressed, he joined the elite team at Jose Eber Atelier Salon at The Four Seasons Resort in Carlsbad. For the next 10 years, he enjoyed working with their vacationing guests whom he found to be happy, relaxed, and eager to try something new.

“I still love creating and being with clients … it’s always gratifying when a happy client leaves your chair.”
