At a young age Riley had an interest in art and expressed her creativity any way she could. She has always been a very energetic and inspired person in all aspects of life. After attending Indiana University for Psychology, her eagerness to be around people in a hands-on environment led her to hair.
After graduating Cosmetology school, she moved to Indianapolis and began working as an Apprentice at Bobby Cooper Salon. After a full year of training under Bobby Cooper himself, she moved onto the floor as a full time stylist. She has participated in ongoing education throughout the past 5 years. Riley has completed the Sassoon Academy in Chicago, has extensive training in Logics and Loreal color, Sassoon techniques in cutting, cutting and styling from Oribe, along with many others. She has also participated in multiple editorial photo shoots and runway shows.
Riley now has a large client base of her own at Bobby Cooper Salon. She loves coming to work every day to interact with clients by making them look and feel as beautiful as they are, inside and out. She expresses her creativity and passion for hair and beauty through vibrant coloring, short haircuts and updo styles for events and weddings. She constantly challenges herself by stepping out of her comfort zone with new styles and color. Whether she is refreshing someone’s current hairstyle or doing a complete makeover, her goal as a stylist is to make her clients’ look and feel as beautiful and comfortable as she possibly can.
