Parlour is an individual hair studio created and operated by Master Stylist and Cosmetology Educator, Amanda Richter. Located in the historic downtown district of Washington, North Carolina within The Suites @ 158.
Parlour offers an alternative to the distractions that come with the traditional salon atmosphere by providing a private, peaceful setting for both women and men.
I began my journey with The Aveda Institute in Columbus, Ohio, finishing the strict program to earn and pass the State Board Licensing Exam. After my initial schooling, I was fortunate enough to be hired by one of the top Salons in the world. During the intense year long training I earned the title Master Stylist. I am trained in the art of French Hair Cutting, which results in a softer, more adaptive look than a typical "British" cut.
Due to my training, I was offered an opportunity to teach aspiring professionals at a beauty academy. After obtaining my Instructor's License I educated cosmetology, and esthiology students through the rigorous training required to pass their state board exams.
My family and I made the decision to move to beautiful North Carolina in 2015. While in Raleigh, I branched out to the barbering industry; both managing and working behind the chair in the triangle's "Best Barber Shop" 3 years running.
