"It’s hard to even find the words to express my love and appreciation for 1213 Hair Studio! My first visit was after being crowned Mrs. Virginia 2012. I connected with the owner, Kelly Hopkins, right after my win and my relationship with the salon and its staff began. I have spent countless hours in the chairs of their stylists and I can honestly say every time I left I felt like a total superstar! They made sure to keep me fresh and fabulous for all of my numerous events, appearances and photo-shoots. Professional doesn’t even cut it. You walk in and you instantly feel like family! It all started as Mrs. Virginia 2012 coming to an amazing sponsor but NOW I’m a customer for life!"

Brandi, Mrs. Virginia 2012

"I've been a client of Kelly's since her hair cutting days on Broad street when 1213 Hair Studio was but a dream. She styled my hair for my wedding and her staff did a beautiful job with my bridesmaids. What I love about Kelly, besides the amazing cuts and colors, is how warm and friendly she is. She makes me feel comfortable and really listens to what I want. She also has a thirst for knowledge and never stops learning new techniques. As an art director for a bridal magazine, I believe in her talents so much that I recently used her as a stylist on a fashion shoot and she blew everyone away. We are lucky to have such an impressive stylist in Richmond!"

Lee, Art Director for Local Bride Publication

"I have been a client of 1213 Hair Studio since it opened and it is easily my favorite. From the sleek modern decor and the fantastic staff to the warm inviting atmosphere it is no wonder it is the best salon in Richmond. Location is great too! A+"

"I met Kelly and a member of her staff in the restroom of the National Theater in 2009. I made a comment about how much I loved their hair and they invited me to come into the new salon. I have been a fan ever since! I love the way the staff know you by name and take care of you the minute you walk in the door. I'm a local musician and thanks to Kelly and her amazing skills, our bass player says I finally have a rock star haircut! Thank you 1213 Hair Studio!!!"

Rachel, Contemporary Christian Singer

"I love 1213 Hair Studio! I am very particular about my hair and won't let just anyone work with it. Kelly is knowledgeable, professional, and fun to work with. I completely trust her with my hair and know that it's going to turn out perfectly every single time. I get compliments about my hair regularly and I send everyone to 1213 Hair Studio. They are the absolute BEST!"

"1213 Hair Studio is by far one of the best salons in Richmond. The staff and stylists are friendly and incredibly talented. They use the latest technology and trends to find the hairstyle best for you. They are also honest in their approach, making sure to let the customers know what will and will not work for them."
