BIOGRAPHY

With an extraordinary combination of finely-honed skill and avant-garde experimentation, Richard Collins has become one of young Hollywood’s most sought after hairstylists. Known for his collaboration on set and with his celebrity clients, Richard has developed a reputation for his forward-thinking, iconic hair.

Born in Maidstone, England, Richard started his career in hairstyling on a whim, folding towels and sweeping up at a local salon on Saturday afternoons.  His drive and creative desire led him to apprentice under a member of the British World Hairstyling Team, where he was rigorously trained in cutting and styling.  Several years in Paris strengthened his hairstyling technique and his love of high fashion.

It wasn't long before Richard became a sought-after talent in the highest echelons of celebrity and editorial hairstyling. A shoot for Vogue magazine with the legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz cemented Richard’s status, and subsequent editorials for Harper’s Bazaar and InStyle have displayed Richard’s illustrious, original talent.

In addition to his top-notch editorial clients, Richard has become the go-to talent for young Hollywood’s most gorgeous young starlets.  As a style-maker, Richard knows what he likes, and takes well-played risks in order to make his clients look and feel innovative and trend-setting.  This insider’s knowledge has allowed his most discerning clients to place full confidence in his spot-on, effortlessly original hair moments.
