Today we’d like to introduce you to Ryan Rich.
Hi Ryan, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I got my start in the hair industry as a young man watching my mom cut. It was a huge inspiration watching her put techniques into effect that transformed the hair. Dry cuts, wet cuts, pointcuts and the occasional clipper cut was her bread and butter. I was motivated to give it a try myself and this started what would develop into an affinity for not only the art but the discussions that transpire behind the chair. I really started taking it seriously in 2011 tho sealing out-licensing and looking into higher-end clientele. Through this process, I started to develop ways to bring a comfortable atmosphere to Los Angeles. Building out shops for success is another huge passion of mine.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It’s definitely been a road of ups and downs, haha! As a young man, I found myself on the wrong side of the law. I was just 18 and this experience is a flash point for seeking out a more positive lifestyle and motivated me to start pushing towards creating environments for men to talk about their life in a therapeutic way without having to actually go to a therapist… altho that’s definitely a great outlet!
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I really found my flow in the combination of classic clipper cuts on the sides and strong scissor fundamentals for the Length on top, the scissor work gave me the ability to be more fluid cutting both long and short hair strongly altho I definitely spend a majority of my time cutting short hair.
Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
I have the best girlfriend in the world. A strong supportive woman is a key to a successful business. She keeps me on my toes and always helps me reflect if I’m not making the right decisions. I love you Megan thanks so much for all you do. Also, shoutout to my mom Linda Rich for all that you do!
