Staff Bios

Stuart McPherson

Stuart McPherson began his career in cosmetology after having a very successful career in sales. Hair design had always been a passion and he returned to school to become a licensed cosmetologist.

After graduating from school, Stuart mentored under and worked for some of the greatest names in the beauty industry. This enabled him to focus on two areas in the industry that he felt were neglected: color correction and cutting curly hair. After extensive studies in hair color and researching the different color companies available, Stuart trained in Framesi Color and completed the rigorous Framesi’s “Mastering the Pallet” program. With this knowledge he continued his studies and went on to achieve the prestigious title of Master Color Correction.

Stuart has always been intrigued by curly hair and the uniqueness of the curl pattern. Educating himself in the complexities, needs and cutting of curly hair he was able to master and develop a style of cutting to enhance the curl pattern.

After an extensive education in hair design, Jimmy Thomas and Stuart McPherson opened a salon in Safety Harbor. The Thomas-McPherson Salon was born in April 2000 in downtown Safety Harbor. Offering an atmosphere of relaxed elegance and the philosophy that the client’s needs are the concern of all employees. The team at Thomas-McPherson Salon believes in continuing education, a demand for excellence, a commitment to customer service and community involvement.

 

Rick Campbell

Rick Campbell began his cosmetology career at the early age of 18 and was quickly awarded the distinction of master stylist/colorist. Mentored under many of the legends in the hair industry, Rick fused their artistry and technique to perfect his precision style of cutting. The combination of his artist’s eye and his drive to excellence has landed him many discerning clients ― Clients who accept nothing but perfection. “Being in the industry for nearly 30 years, I feel blessed and more in love with my chosen field than I ever could have imagined,” said Rick.

Though he has been involved in cosmetology since 18, Rick does have other fields to compare it to: for a while he brought his eye for aesthetics to a more residential field, working simultaneously in home design and hair design.
