About Us

Kym and Barry Tatum have owned and operated Private Style Salon in the comfortable setting of their own home since 1997.

Kym trained and sharpened her skills in reputable Richmond salons for fifteen years prior to opening Private Style and has completed extensive advanced training at Toni and Guy Academy in London and Graham Webb Academy in D.C. and, most recently, Nick Arrojo. Kym has an innate talent for creating fashionable styles uniquely suited to the individual.

Barry, who also has extensive advanced training from Graham Webb, has spent 14 years developing his skills as a colorist. He has been trained, tested and recognized by the American Board of Certified Haircolorists. Barry’s portfolio of colorwork ranges from beautifully natural to vibrantly fashion forward as well as all aspects of corrective color theory and technique.

With priorities on continuing education, current fashion sense and uncompromising client care, Kym and Barry deliver highly creative professional hair services in a comfortable, stylish and intimate environment.
