A Little About Us and What You Can Expect:

  I'm Rick Thacker.  I am the owner of Design 9 Hair studio.  I started off my carreer in the beauty industry over 25 yrs ago. My initial traning was in Arizona at a Pivot Point Academy. After my training I continued to work in Arizona for four years. I then headed east where I had further training at the Pivot Point Academy in Chicago. I then returned to my home state of Ohio where I worked and trained at an itercoiffure salon for 7 years and became a well know stylist in that area  and then moved out on my own for several more years.  At the age 40 I moved to North Carolina to pursue a dream of owning a B&B while continuing with my love of doing hair for 10 years. Now in Pensacola,  This is where I now have my own salon and am building a clientele and a team of successful stylists. 
I love my career and my goal is to make it show in my work.  Making clients feel good about themselves  and their hair is important work and I like to think I make a difference in their lives.
