Richard Cussen : Owner and Director

Joined Salon 2004


Richard and his partner Bev founded award winning A.K.A Professional Hairdressing in 2004 and they have been setting the bar high ever since. Richard’s built a dedicated team who love hairdressing as much as he does and under his guidance, professional, high quality service has become synonymous with A.K.A.

The creative opportunity offered by hairdressing originally attracted Richard to the industry, and to this day making clients feel fabulous is his favourite part of the job. Brewing beer is another passion and he loves the craft beer market and the many independent businesses that make up Bristol and Gloucester Road. Richard also likes to keep people on their toes and has an innate ability to include Star Wars quotes in everyday conversation (you have been warned!)

Richard’s male hairdressing clients form a large part of his day, largely due to him winning the L’Oreal ‘Men’s Image Award’ South West Regional Final and being a featured hairstylist in the press article “Re-make Your Man”. Richard also admits to loving the attention to detail which is required for classic and contemporary work.

All team members are fully qualified and constantly under go progressive training.  Richard’s particular areas of expertise are:

Precision Cutting / Men’s Styling / Long Hair:

Classic Highlights / Contemporary Colour / Natural Balayage & Ombre:
