About Richard Joseph Salon

Welcome to Richard Joseph Salon

A leader in women’s styling and an authority in (thinning hair, fixing hair coloring blunders, short styles, ideals cuts for face shape, whatever), Richard Campione began his styling career in the 1970’s with training at Pivot Point International. Advance training followed at Vidal Sassoon, Sebastian International, TONI&GUY, Bumble and Bumble.

In 1985 he opened Richard Joseph Salon in the Hillcrest neighborhood of San Diego, which has gathered a loyal following of clients, many of whom travel in from Los Angeles and farther for the unique environment and talents. Campione has strived to create a salon focused not only on cutting-edge hair design and “fashion forecasting” but also on creating an accepting environment comfortable for clients of every age, race, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation or physical beauty type.

Campione quickly rose to the top of his field, working in many areas of the hair industry including education, as a platform artist, and in television, video, and print work. He served as the Educational Director for Focus 21 International and traveled across US and Canada doing fashion presentations and haircutting demonstrations. His participation in hair competitions across the US has won him eight top honors to date for his talents.

He currently works with one of San Diego’s top modeling agencies and has coordinated numerous fashion shows for top department stores. He also has done makeovers for Mary Kay cosmetics and for clients of many Southern California cosmetic surgeons.

Campione’s true specialty as a hairstylist is updating the classics – his 40 years of experience provide unique perspective on changing trends, allowing him to update classic looks to be at once hip and timeless.

As owner of Richard Joseph Salon in San Diego, California, Campione balances his time between his private clients, education, fashion and makeover work.
