Lava Salon was started in 2006 by Geoff and Noel Richardson. They love what they do and hope that their #LavaLuv shows every time you walk through the door of our hair salon in Charleston.
"Our team is a hard-working tribe of stylists comprised of a blend of diverse backgrounds and skills. We are committed to quality results through year long continuing education and creating an inclusive environment of community and equality for all."
Noel grew up in Mobile, AL. After a long illustrious career as a temp, she finally decided to try her hand as a cosmetologist. She attended and trained at an Aveda Share Institute in Mandeville, Louisiana. Upon becoming licensed and looking for a fresh start, she literally closed her eyes and picked a spot on the map, letting fate choose her destiny, Charleston, SC.
She has cut hair since 2000.
Geoff has lived most of his life in Charleston, SC. He graduated from USC in 1995 and started a career in Advertising in Atlanta, GA. In 2000, he returned to Charleston as a Business Development Manager for his father’s company. In 2001 he met Noel – who eventually helped him realize his purpose & entrepreneurial dreams.
He has cut hair since 2004.
