Very happy with my balayage and cut from Emily! I loved her technique and she made sure to listen to what I wanted so that I was 100% happy with my hair. Highly recommend!
I used to go to Rayna back in New York City. She has a great feel for hair and very gentle and holistic approach. Whenever she did color it would always last long and grew out gloriously. Even though I got either painting or balayage my hair remained healthy and maintained its texture. I grew the longest and healthiest hair when she was my hair stylist. She’s a true artist.

Had an amazing experience at First & Park Beauty Salon! The salon is absolutely gorgeous. Welcoming, beautiful, relaxing. All of the things! Rayna is a true artist and I trusted her fully with my hair! After not dyeing my hair for 3+ years, I was ready to add in some subtle highlights. Rayna nailed it! It was exactly what I was envisioning. I left the salon feeling so refreshed and relaxed. Chatting with Rayna is also such a joy. I would recommend Rayna and First & Park Beauty to anyone looking for a stylist that takes the time to truly understand the look you are wanting to achieve. From communication, to execution, to overall experience, 10/10!
I am so happy with my color and cut by Emily! She is so detail oriented and exceeded my expectations with what I asked for!
Emily was so kind and welcoming. My experience was fun and relaxing. I brought in an inspo pic and she worked with me to figure out what would be best for me and my hair needs. I’m really happy with the service and I will be a returning customer!!
I went to First & Park Beauty and saw Emily Nugent for a highlight -- she is absolutely amazing at what she does!! I am in love with my hair, and the experience was so fun! The salon is adorable - the atmosphere is so warm and welcoming, and Emily and Rayna are the sweetest. I highly recommend!!!
Such a hidden gem tucked in the Short North! I was having a hard time finding a new hairstylist after moving back to Columbus and Emily did such an amazing job. They pay attention to detail to make sure you are walking out the door with exactly what you came in looking for.HIGHLY recommend!
Emily is amazing! I have received so many compliments on my hair. I wanted lighter and brighter and Emily did just that! Super knowledgeable and gave me hair care tips and tricks! Will be back!
