Meet the Team: Marissa Millevoi

marissa blog

Marissa is a natural presence around the salon. She is always smiling or laughing, socializing with clients, and let’s get real…she has the cutest clothes.

Hair was something Marissa had always thought about doing, but was unsure if it was really the path for her. Rather than question her choice and let it hold her back like many high school graduates, Marissa took a leap of faith and pursued her dreams. Boy, are we glad she did. Beauty school helped Marissa realize that this was certainly the right path for her, while her love for hair grew alongside her skill level. After graduating from the Bucks County School of Beauty Culture in Fall of 2008, Marissa began receptioning at RIAH until she could join the shampoo apprentice program and eventually moved her way up to the Advanced Stylist level she is at today.

When Marissa isn’t busy working two jobs, you may find her shopping, going up the mountains, skiing, or spending time with friends and being social.

Why Riah?

“It was such a beautiful salon and everyone knew about it who was locally in the industry”. Even before RIAH was born and we were still Salon Rage, the salon was well known in the area and everyone wanted to work here, especially Marissa.

“The entire time I was beauty school, I was thinking wow, I would love to work there”

How would…
You describe yourself in one word? Laid-back.
Your friends describe you in one word? Hard-working.
Your clients describe you in one word? Personable.

What’s your favorite technique to use on clients?
I love the blow-dry and the final finished look. The “final reveal” to the client is the most important part–that’s the way they’re gonna be walking out the door. I love seeing their reactions when they see their hair for the first time after i’m done.

“I want every client walking out the door feeling as amazing as they look”

Favorite Salon Memory?
“On our ten year anniversary, we cleared out the whole salon so it was empty and turned it into a huge celebration. It was a goodbye to the old salon before we moved and became RIAH. The most memories I have with the team are from that night. They’re the ones who have kept me here all this time; everyone is so great to work with.”

“A heat activated spray to create long-lasting, shiny, straight styles.”

 

 

Happy Monday!

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
