Raymond Vaughn

Raymond Vaughn opened his salon at 19 years of age. He gathered his first experience by taking classes with Redken and helping with shows including the Redken International in Las Vegas. He continued his work with Redken for 5 years and trained with their design team in California. The travel and experience afforded him with a vision for his salon – professionalism, specialization, and both technical and people skills. The salon grew by leaps and bounds and eventually expanded into the location it occupies today.

The salon's success allowed Raymond to venture into distribution, eventually becoming Mississippi's sole distributor of both Sebastian International and Oggi. In just a few years, Sebastian's presence in Mississippi tripled, gaining attention from competition as well as Sebastian. Eventually, Raymond met Irvine Rusk and shifted his focus back to his salon. Rusk became a close friend and mentor to Raymond, even inviting him to train with his own design team. Raymond attributes the information and knowledge gained during this experience a cornerstone of his success. He continues to surround himself with people he can learn from and a staff that shares his desire to be the best.

Raymond spends time in both of his locations in Jackson and Brookhaven. He enjoys the challenge of keeping his clients up-to-date in the ever-changing fashion world and being a mentor to other stylists.
