The Robledo Philosophy

Owner Rodney Robledo believes that beauty begins with confidence, and he has made this belief a foundation of his creative salon practice.

A great hairstylist cultivates confidence in each and every client–a process that requires listening and understanding, along with the technical knowledge to create a style that makes each client feel their best. Rodney thrives off the ability to assist people in feeling and looking amazing each and every day through his personalized approach.

He is continuously learning and seeking opportunities to push creative boundaries and expand his technical knowledge. Throughout his career, Rodney has had the opportunity to work with numerous high-profile mentors and celebrity stylists, giving him a rich technical expertise to draw upon as he crafts unique, trendy styles for his clients. Read some of Rodney’s hair salon reviews below to see why his clients call him the best hair stylist in Raleigh.

“Rodney has been my stylist for 3 years and I wonder why it took me so long to find him. I love that I can just sit in his chair, relax and leave the rest to him. Rodney has such a unique gift to just look at you and create a masterpiece. It’s not all about hair color. He considers skin tone, facial structure, eye color, etc. He is exactly what I need when I don’t know what I need or want. Rodney’s personalized service is well worth the little bit of extra money you might spend on hair services, but I have never felt rushed and I always leave 100% satisfied and beautiful.”


“The studio is first class all the way! It’s very vogue! The decor is warm, friendly and inviting. It’s chic and stylish with a touch of zen. There is ample parking as well. Rodney is a gem! He is an artist and visionary. He is just outstanding at what he does. He takes time to listen to his clients and is not afraid to offer suggestions. He also books appropriate time between bookings so he not rushing you or himself. Raleigh is so lucky to have a person of his caliber practicing here. I highly recommend him and just feel blessed that I found him! Always walk out of his place with a smile! Love my hair! Thank you Rodney!”


“Want to feel beautiful after getting your hair done? Then, Rodney is the hairdresser you should have do your hair. Last winter, I had him redo my hair and I was extremely happy with the new style and color. For summer, I had him cut the hair shorter, and my hair is ready to go after washing and conditioning-no styling needed, unless I am getting dressed up. What a wonderful feeling, knowing I can look good without spending more than 15 minutes on styling my hair for a wedding! Make an appointment, you won’t be sorry, he has a great eye for makeovers.”


“Rodney is very talented as a stylist and did wonders with my hair. The studio is probably the safest hair salon Raleigh has to offer during Covid because of the private appointments. Definitely an interesting concept. I liked the privacy and intimacy of the studio, and I felt very relaxed.”


“My initial impression upon entering the salon was the it was clean, neat and inviting without the glaring light often found in other salons. Upon meeting Rodney, it became obvious that the salon was a reflection of him. He first selected what turned out to be the best shade of color for me. Then, the haircut was very precise and thorough with careful attention to all details. Not only was my family highly complimentary but I, myself, was completely satisfied. I will return without any hesitation.”


“I recently moved to NC and was very afraid about getting a haircut from someone I did not know. I searched for top rated salons in Raleigh and decided to go with Robledo Studio. I was so pleased after visiting Rodney, the haircut was modern and easy to style. My husband really liked it and I received a lot of compliments, even from people I didn’t know. I will definitely go back again and again.”


About Rodney Robledo

Rodney Robledo, originally from Puerto Rico began his career in the beauty industry in 2001 when he signed as a Hairstylist & Makeup Artist with a fashion agency in Miami. Prior this experience, Rodney had already established himself as a skilled photographer in the industry and completed a Bachelors Degree in Communications with a Major in Advertising and Public Relations. Rodney found his passion in styling and hair design at 7 years old and dreamed of starting his own salon. In 2011 that dream became a reality with the opening of Robledo Studio Makeup & Hair Artistry.

Rodney wanted to create an intimate space to engage with interesting people and ideas where he could practice his passion and creative talent daily. He envisioned a tranquil space where his clients could totally relax, let go of their stress and leave refreshed and transformed. With this in mind, Rodney found the perfect location for his private hair salon in North Raleigh and the Robledo Studio was born.

The studio has given Rodney the opportunity to connect with each of his clients in a more personal environment where he can listen and build relationships while creating trend-setting hairstyles suited for his clients.
