Richard

CEO / Co-Owner / Stylist & Aveda Product Educator

Richard (Rich) Hess brings a unique combination of creativity and business acumen to the Green Apple Salons. He decided to follow his dream of becoming a stylist after spending many years in other successful endeavors, and he has never looked back! Rich believes in the art and creativity of hairstyling and finds pleasure in making people look beautiful. He pays a great deal of attention to detail and is proud that his clients don’t just get a haircut, they have an experience.

In addition to his work as a stylist, Rich draws on years of marketing, retail, graphic design and entrepreneurial experience to manage the business side of Green Apple Salon. He is absolutely passionate about building the retail and business locations and is fueled by his drive, work ethic, tenacity and an extreme curiosity that always keeps him learning new things.

Rich grew up in Michigan and his creativity and business sense were nurtured as he watched his dad work in homebuilding, carpentry and car restoration. He moved to Houston to study at San Jacinto College before finally deciding to take the plunge into the beauty biz and go pro. Rich received his professional training at the Aveda Concepts Salon in Fort Worth and later returned to Houston to settle down.
