Rick Cooper

OWNER/FOUNDER

Rick began his career in San Francisco at Vidal Sassoon as a stylist and educator. Vidal Sassoon was an early inspiration for Rick and his principals for learning and passion for perfection have been a constant influence throughout his career. He credits that early immersion for inspiring him to develop his own unique method of cutting which he based on the fundamental principals of innovation, perfection, and excellence that still have a strong influence on him today.

This very pursuit of excellence and innovation ultimately led him to open Cooper Alley Salon in 2001. He envisioned a salon built upon three very important ideals: innovation, perfection, and excellence. A constant presence at the salon, Rick has built a strong team that shares these very ideals. Rick also recognizes the importance of developing the technical, creative, and professional abilities of designers within our industry. In fact, it’s this very commitment to learning that encourages him to share his knowledge nationally through seminars, hair shows, and editorial work.
