Doreen is an amazing stylist. Her eye, creativity, knowledge and ability guarantees a perfect result. Her engaging and witty conversation enhances the time you are with her and accentuates the experience!

Always the bomb...
Doreen always manages to make the 'most with the least' - as I get thinner and thinner, she manages to 'max out' what I have left.. that's just ONE of the many reason I keep all my appointments.... :)

Saturday Afternoon with Dorren
I watched Doreen cut and style a young graduate student’s hair, (male), and I was amazed at the cut, (really edgy), and how much the young man appeared to enjoy their conversation and his hair cut. I was next, ready for my color and cut! Later, I left the salon feeling just like the young grad student…I enjoyed the conversation and my hair looked…well, really edgy, for an older woman! Doreen, you have managed to bridge the generation gap! Master hair stylist and great personality!
Aug 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
If you haven't gotten a haircut by Doreen, you are missing out. It's more than a cut/color. It's an experience, and a colorful and memorable one. Sounds silly but this should be on your bucket list for sure! Seriously awesome cut, color, and conversation. Love it, love her!!!
Aug 20, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
FINALLY! A stylist for us Boomers!
Finally I have found a stylist who "gets" a 60 year old woman who is dealing with all of the "stuff" that comes naturally with age, but who still wants to have a stylish, trendy, color and cut. Doreen is not only a very talented stylist and colorist, but she is also a caring, giving person. She will not let you leave her salon unless you are totally happy! I look forward to many more visits with Doreen working her magic!

Best Hair Artist Ever!!
Doreen has been doing my hair for almost 3 years, and it has never looked better! She's taken me from a dark brunette to platinum blonde with pink and purple then back to brunette! I constantly get compliments on my hair cut whenever I go out and about. I love sitting in her chair and getting a good shampoo!
Aug 5, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Compliments to Doreen! She listens to you and takes the time to wash, cut, blow and style till you're happy with the results. She does not rush at all. The day she cut my hair I attended a Birthday dinner party. I had 3 people compliment me on my hair! Doreen's the best!
Jul 25, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
the usual boffo cut and convo with the bossest of the Richmond hair bosses. miss D is the best and i actually look forward to haircuts these days. am very glad she's happy in her new pad but I will find her no matter where she tries to hide! I ain't got no hair to cut but I love the hour chats and love. now I've got to wait another three or four months until I'm shaggy enough to go back.
Jul 9, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
LET'S TALK "MAGIC HAIR"! Think Doreen! I am a "mature" lady who gets stopped in the street by strangers who ask who my stylist is. It's because Doreen always gives me "magic hair"! She's my hero!
Jul 1, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
As usual, Doreen worked her magic on my hair. And that's how I left her new salon. Feeling fabulous!
Jun 29, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
A perfect change
Doreen's new location must have inspired us to try something new and I love it! As usual I vaguely explain some idea and she runs with it and makes it better than I imagined. I now have a perfect summer style and I'm already getting compliments. Doreen is the best!!
Jun 14, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Cut and color
I was ready for a change and wanted something fun for the summer. As usual, Doreen delivered! A couple hours with Doreen in her new space and I have a great new cut and a beautiful new color! THANK YOU as always, Doreen. You're the best.
May 30, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Haircut and color
LoveLove my girl Reenie. I hate doing my hair in any way possible and she makes me love my hair and my cut!!!! She's the best colorist I've ever seen!!!!!
May 27, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Fabulous haircut & style
Once again I am pleased with what Doreen was able to do with my hair. She listened what I wanted & knew exactly what to do. You know you are in good hands because she has the experience & "know-how" for whatever kind of hair you have. I walked out with a new look which I & my friends loved. See ya Sunday!!

all of this and more
snappy cut comes with great convo, first class tales of derring-doo and maybe a little neck massage. can't get enough of the doll.
May 9, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
It's another Doreen McCarthy miracle!
The Brazilian hair tx is magic in a bottle! My fine hair has body, holds a curl, isn't frizzy! A must!
Apr 9, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Awesome as always
It's always a joy to get my hair done by Doreen. She has helped my hair go from darker to lighter (not an easy feat) and since I've been going to her my hair is much more manageable! Not to mention she is great to be around and so enthusiastic as well as skilled. Thanks, Doreen!
Apr 2, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
10 years younger and 10 pounds lighter
Amazing skills,everytime I leave I'm always feeling like a million bucks,if you don't get that from your stylist then you should check out Doreen.30 years of doing my hair and I've never left anything but pleased and feeling renewed.
Mar 23, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
I scheduled an initial consultation and not only found Doreen incredibly personable and down to earth, she knew what she was doing with my hair and went ahead and gave me a much needed touch-up until my next appointment. Can't wait to go back!
Mar 10, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
love me some doreen!
needed a quick trim & I got it Sat am. She gave me exactly what I was looking for. Got compliments from a group of women yesterday & one of them was another hair stylist! I get compliments about my cut & color quite often - all thanks to Doreen!
Feb 22, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Long Hair to Short N Sassy

doreen is the bomb
Doreen McCarthy is a most talented hair stylist .... I am older now and that hair I used have ... has left the building ... On my very first visit, Doreen convinced me to cut this thinning hair really short ... Well she did and I love it ... she also is a whiz at trimming them Italiano eyebrows and a goatee straight ~ very talented and pretty chatty too ... but that is a good thing
Dec 7, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Finally Someone Who Gets It!
After 3 consultations, each with a different high end salon in Richmond, Doreen gets it. She has experience and it's in her blood. I didn't get quick responses with gleaming eyes eager to do what the stylist wanted vs. what I wanted. I didn't get put off and told to try something else instead because the stylist didn't want to tackle my idea. I got a full conversation.explanations, suggestions and I was educated on how to better take care of my hair vs. just having a product sold to me.
Nov 24, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Feel Like a Million
Though only time can mend a broken heart, Miss Reenie's talent with "hairapy" can make that time easier.
Nov 8, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
fun fun fun
always a rockin time. lord only knows where the conversation will go while miss d makes me look like a human.
Oct 11, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Great as always....
I had not been able to get back to RVA for several weeks ( live in NoVa now and yes, make the trip for Doreen...) and she does the magic just like always.... SPK
Sep 15, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
The perfect cut for autumn!
I only let Doreen cut my hair for a reason; no one else can possibly compare to her perfection. My thin, limp hair turns into a stylish, body-filled bob every time and I get compliments on it the minute I leave the salon.
Aug 26, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful
If you are looking for someone to take care of you where your hair is concerned, if you are looking for a professional like your doctor, or Realtor, or mechanic...if you want someone you can trust, someone who can look at you and know what works, someone who listens and gives constructive feedback, someone who can cut hair with precision, and color like a masterful artist.. .well, then Doreen is the stylist you are looking for and her salon is where you want to be. You won't be disappointed.
Aug 18, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Some hairstylists have a gift. Doreen is one of them an can make anyone look great! The conversation is always entertaining as well.
Jul 20, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
as always a gas. i actually look forward to my infrequent haircuts. we'll talk about some pretty around the bend stuff! (she did the usual great job with very little to work with.)
Jun 30, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Doreen always does SOO Much with so little - always a great job and always good conversation and advice...
Jun 27, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Doreen is a rockstar. I have known her very casually for a while and recently she decided to take on my hair as a challenge. I am growing out my pixie and she shaped it into something amazing!!!
Apr 26, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Another great cut...
...and swell visit with Ms. Doreen, who sure knows her way around some shears! Super convenient location, too
Apr 12, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
funner than fun
as always a highly entertaining and highly professional whirlwind of an appointment. i'm already looking forward to the next appointment when i'm appropriately shaggy and unkept.
Mar 8, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Molly's so excited about her haircut. We can't believe how beautifully it grew out over the last year. Thanks!!
Mar 5, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Doreen is our official family stylist! I had fun and she fixed my hair! She kept my length because I'm trying to grow it out, but has completely cleaned it up. I had some ugly chunks in the back. My sister's hair looked so good I had to go see her! :)
Feb 24, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Doreen can do so much with so little.... I really appreciate her 'magic' with my thin hair..... We are keeping the Matt Lauer look !!
Feb 16, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Dear God, Thank you for Doreen. She is better than pop or pizza. She is better than all the other stylist put together. She is better than my therapist. Your humble servant, --Lana
Jan 21, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Does a good job and is always easy to talk to. If you want to look good I would recommend Doreen any day!
Jan 6, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Love my hair and will stick with her as my stylist from now on! Hope to send many friends there as well because she is really wonderful.

Great Cut & Style
before I found Doreen no one could cut my hair to my liking. Doreen does it and I get lots of compliments!
Dec 12, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
After several years, I recently rediscovered Doreen through my sister and am so glad we reconnected because she is still as good a stylist (and crazy a person) as she was back in the early 80's when we started going to her at Visions Gallery! She listens to MY suggestions and does not dictate to me what I want. I haven't gotten that level of respect from a stylist in a long time and it is appreciated! Never a dull moment in Doreen's chair!

Hairs by Doreen
Ms. Doreen gots me lookin' good! She's super and sitting in her chair is a hoot! Doreen knows her way around some shears!
Nov 11, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Awesome as always
Every time I visit with Doreen I am renewed and refreshed! I used to have little to no hair (thanks to chemo!) but Doreen knows how to work with the baby fine hair and helped me to work with my "new" hair that started to grow in after those treatments. Now I get so many compliments on how great my hair looks. Thanks Reenie for helping me to feel so pretty!
Oct 23, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Doreen has my approval
Doreen knows what shes doing. No matter who you are id recommend her anyday if you want a good hairstyle
Oct 22, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
I had to find a 'substitute' when I was out of town for several weeks - Doreen dialed RIGHT back in like she always does...
Oct 1, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Doreen truley is the BEST!!!!
I'm kinda speechless, which is rare. Doreen transformed my thick,dry, frizzy hair into shiny, flowy healthy beautiful hair with amazing color and cut. Her skills are rock star status and the new product line is the best I've EVER had.
Sep 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Love my new hair
Doreen has been cutting and coloring my hair for 15+ years and I always leave the cut and color to her with minimal direction. She never disappoints! I am always thrilled with the results.
Sep 2, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
New Fall Cut
Perfect as always! Now I have a little extra sass for all the upcoming fall weddings I have to sit through:) Thanks Doreen!!
Aug 19, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Metamorphosis for Suzanne
I rock in my favorite reddish brown w/blond-ish streaks around my face ... And it is just the way I want easing into fall colors. Cant wait to get kicky again with BAD,BAD red hair with several layers of hi/low highlights. After today, I'm getting my MOJO BACK. Doyenne- you rock, baby. Love you, Suzanne Levitas-Phelps
Aug 10, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Great job Doreen! It might be my imagination, but I thought I caught a couple of young hotties cutting their eyes my way!
Jul 27, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Bye Bye Gray!
I'm not sure what me real hair color is.....it could be completely white by now but Doreen keeps the color so natural and healthy looking....I love it and her!

May 24, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
When you go to lunch with close friends right after leaving a hair appointment and they don't notice it's been colored....THAT'S a compliment! "Your hair always looks great." Thank you Doreen for sharing your talent! You are the BEST stylist I've ever had.
May 22, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Always a great cut
As each year goes by, there is less and less for Doreen to work with, but she still seems to manage to make the ABSOLUTE best of what is left! - thanks as always.....

There is nothing more to say other than SHE IS THE BEST! Doreen knows hair and just how and what to do with any kind of hair...cuts or color. Never a dull moment when you sit in her chair! She is professional and dedicated to her business and clients.
Mar 12, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Perfect As Always!
Getting my hair cut with Doreen is less like a hair cut and more like a sculptural, artistic, relaxing experience. I usually allow her to do whatever she wants and her visions are always perfect. I'm already getting daily compliments on my new do! Can't recommend her enough :-)
Mar 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Great color and cut
I have not had my hair colored since I turned grey over 20 years ago - I took the plunge with Doreen! She was fabulous - she was sensitive to the fact that loads of color would overwhelm me. It is expertly done to cover my white locks! Plus, the cut she gave me is one of the best I have had in a LONG time! I would send any silver foxes her way!
Mar 2, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
finally a great hair cut!
This was my first visit with Doreen. She gave me a fantastic haircut. She is very smart and listened to my requests. Her obvious vast experience is impressive. She is also a lot of fun. I can not wait to go back. I am sending my husband in too. Thank you so very much Doreen.
Feb 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
She was wonderful with my eight-year old son. Plus, a great haircut that both he and I could live with! We plan on taking my mom back to see her when she comes all the way from Texas! Doreen is simply fabulous!

Review hair by doreen
Doreen really understands here clients and therefore results are always outstanding. She listens well and pays attention to details even while she may be telling a story. She has cut my hair for 20 years and I always feel better about life when I leave her chair.and of course I look good!

BEAUTIFUL Hair by Doreen
I have been with Doreen for 11 years and have EXCELLENT service and perfect hair! Over the years I have followed her no matter where she is located. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you want exactly what YOU want. I have trusted her always to come up with the most recent trends and to design a style to fit your hairy ty[e and face shape. I LOVE HER!!
Jan 30, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
A real style, at last
Doreen is the first person I've trusted to give me a real hairstyle. After 40+ years of the same long, straight hair, I have a wonderful cut that takes no more time to style than my old look--and I always leave feeling like a model!
Jan 18, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Creative. Artistic. Gifted hair designer. That's Doreen! Inspired. Uplifted. Beautiful. Transformed. That's how you'll feel once you leave her chair! She really "sees" you and is able to bring out the very best in you. Awesome!
Dec 18, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
I had Doreen try the 'thin hair' look of Matt Lauer ( about my age) and it worked! She always does an amazing job with what I have - and she has LESS and LESS to work with as the years go by......
Dec 13, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
After 25 years of seeing Doreen she's still groovin in her art! Love your new location....love your work...love you! Thanks for being you!
Dec 4, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
Doreen's the most experienced and talented stylist and colorist I've ever had. She is a visionary of hair. I recommend booking an appointment for your next hair cut and style.
Nov 14, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
always the best.....
as ALWAYS! Doreen does a PERFECT job with what is left of my hair ..... she makes it appear to be a FULL head of hair! No comb-over either! Just a GREAT job! :)
Nov 4, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
WOW! What a great haircut! and so much fun to get.
Thanks so much Doreen for the haircut of the decade. My hair style is so fexible, I can wear business casual, rockabilly-crazy, whatever. I'll be back for sure!
Nov 1, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
I never let anyone cut...
my hair other than to trim it, before Doreen. After 52 years of straight auburn hair, I needed a change! What took me so long?! Friends say I look 20 years younger, yikes! Thank you Ms. D. I'm eternally greatful.
Oct 23, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
The greatest haircut ever!
Been coming to Doreen for 15+ years. She is always on top of her game and I always walk away with a great haircut. Will keep coming back as long as she is in the business.
Oct 17, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
An Investment in Yourself
Over twenty years of flawless cuts & highlights, and everytime I leave feeling invigorated. Before Doreen, I didn't know the value of a great haircut, or how a talented hair therapist can improve one's self esteem. One cut by Doreen is all it will take to convince you too. Thanks, Ms. Reenie.
Oct 13, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30173716
30 years and STILL a perfecet cut....
I have had Doreen cut my hair, and my family's hair for over 30 years! Every time it's a perfect cut! I have 'thinned" over the years, and she can manage that BETTER than ANYONE ever has... Thanks D - SPK
