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.”

– JAIME BIRT

“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!”

– MAGGIE MARIELLA

“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.”

– KATHLEEN OSINSKI

“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.”

– MICHAEL BASSMAN

“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 Robledo Studio

Rodney Robledo began his career in beauty and hairstyling in 2001 when he signed as a stylist with a fashion agency in Miami. Prior this experience, Rodney had already established himself as a skilled photographer in the industry. Moving out from behind the camera lens, Rodney found his passion in styling and hair design and dreamed of starting his own salon. In 2011 that dream became a reality with the opening of Robledo studio.

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 hair salon in North Raleigh and his salon concept 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, build relationships, and create trend-setting hairstyles suited for his clients’ daily lifestyles.
