Successful Business and Personal Partnership 

A very successful husband and wife partnership which has grown over time, whilst working together in their various salons. Their love of working behind the chair in their prestige salon, The Color, creating beautiful hair for their clients, grows stronger with every passing year. 

Their passion, enthusiasm, love for their chosen career, and for each other, has enabled them to share their inspirational journey in the hairdressing industry over 30 amazing years.


Teamwork and Togetherness

If you were to ask Richard and Mel how they have created such a successful partnership, the answer would simply be – teamwork. 

Through their many years of working together, they have learnt to totally respect and trust each other’s professional attributes. Their love of working with and understanding their clients’ needs has seen their business flourish over the years, with loyal clients returning time and time again. 

Their approach to business is simple, yet traditional. This journey of togetherness has provided The Color with its positive driving force. Richard and Mel strive to deliver a professional, yet personal experience for all of their guests and it is on this basis that they make all their business decisions. 

They believe every person who walks into their salon should encounter a warm and friendly welcome, whilst also receiving the best professional hair care available. Over the years Richard and Mel have been humbled by the positive feedback they have received from clients, which spurs them on to continue delivering first class hair care.

Mel and Richard were recently invited to an exclusive online meeting with Angus Mitchell (joint owner of John Paul Mitchell System) who wanted to discuss the future of the Paul Mitchell brand with front line professionals. Angus wanted to hear directly from members of the global Paul Mitchell family and to be able to offer his support to the top hair salons, like The Color during the recent pandemic.
