Meet the Team: James Crego

There is no way you could have a bad day hanging out with James. He is constantly laughing and smiling, bringing joy to every client at the salon for the past four years.

James began working at RIAH as a shampoo assistant when he graduated high school, and continued working through his education at Empire Beauty School in Warminster. Before long, James was on the floor as a stylist, bringing dedicated clients with him from beauty school and building a clientele at RIAH.

Born and raised in the Fox Chase neighborhood of Philly, James still lives in the same house he grew up in, 26 years later. He likes to plant his roots and commit to something–whether it be a place to live, friends, or his career.

James enjoys eating at new restaurants, being social with friends, and meeting new people. He loves activities in general–road trips, workout classes, hiking, wine tasting, you name it. James is always up for an adventure, and will make sure you look good doing it!

 

Why Riah?
The education program, and a great reputation are what first drew James to working at the salon. The amazing team that makes up the salon is what has kept him here.

How would…
You describe yourself in one word? Reliable.
Your friends describe you in one word? Loyal.
Your clients describe you in one word? Personable.

What’s your favorite technique to use on clients?
James loves putting extensions on clients. “Oh my god, what they can do to people! Make you look younger, your hair look fuller, you name it.”

“A couple of extensions can literally transform a person.”

About RIAH Hair Studio

How We Came to Be . . . RIAH Hair Studio In May 2011, the former Salon Rage of Southampton, Pennsylvania relocated to a new space and changed their name to RIAH Hair Studio. RIAH? (pronounced 'Rye-Ah') Yes, it's "hair" spelled in reverse. Donna originally established Salon RAGE in March 1999. The salon delivered comprehensive hair services to the surrounding communities. As a seasoned beauty industry professional for over 29 years, Donna believed in education, not only for her stylists, but for her clients as well. This prompted her to open this first salon where she could foster such a dynamic environment. After 10+ years in Southampton and a desire to move closer to her family, in 2011 she relocated her business to Furlong, Pennsylvania in the heart of Bucks County. Re-emerging as RIAH Hair Studio, Donna has created a modern, contemporary, urban loft design experience located on the corner of York Rd & Edison-Furlong Roads, at the Village Corner in Buckingham Township. RIAH Hair Studio is an intimate boutique salon that is relaxing, comfortable & social, providing the "Right Attitude" from the team resulting in a "Great Experience" for their clients. It's the "RAGE" she carefully develops to this day. The stylists are continually certified in the latest hair techniques (color, cut, design, styles, tools, products, and fashion trends). Their clients, female, male, young or mature, enjoy the benefits of this extensive training. Additionally, they are taught how to re-create and maintain their RIAH experience until the next appointment. It makes RIAH Hair Studio stand out as one of the most referred-to salons in Bucks County! When we have the opportunity to see you in our new space, we'll provide you with the "Right Attitude & Great Experience" as we have always strived to do. Happy Day! from Donna & the Team at RIAH Hair Studio View all posts by RIAH Hair Studio
