About Us

Established in 2002 by Gwendolyn Tribble and Robert Shaver with the goal of bringing exceptional hair care hospitality and professionalism to the area, RIAH’s highly- educated, cutting edge stylists pamper guests with a full-range of hair services. The key to the RIAH experience is the fact that you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable from the very first moment you walk through the door. We’re a full-service hair salon in an atmosphere that’s modern and rustic by design. The RIAH experience begins with a warm and friendly welcome by the salon coordinators. They will make anyone feel right at home while they assist in preparing you for your visit with a variety of beverages, magazines and a tour of our salon for first-time guests. After a tour, your stylist will bring you over to their styling space for an image profile. This is when they take some time to get know you and what you’d like to achieve with your look before offering a variety of ideas. Our stylists do this with their guests on each visit to make certain that customers are continually satisfied. Next, you’ll be transported to the tranquil RIAH Retreat. This is the enclosed shampoo room that provides a relaxing escape from daily stress and responsibility. Guests will experience Riah’s signature head, neck and shoulder massage with a choice of three aromatherapy oils in preparation for further services in the custom styling space and/or color bar area. What makes Riah different, and so well known, is their above and beyond approach to service through the little extra touches. Riah makes abundant strides to provide a peaceful haven for each and every guest. Collectively all of the small additions transform a typical salon visit into a memorable experience. Our goal is to be on top of every detail so you always have the best experience and the very best results. We want you to feel special when you walk in the door and even more special when you leave.
