Ricky Scapini

Stylist + Educator

Throughout his life, Ricky has always adored anything art-related, including fashion, music, movies and tattoos. When he realized he wanted to work in a creative industry, studying to become a stylist was an easy choice. At Jet Rhys, he’s most celebrated for his short cuts, but still adores shaping beautiful long hair. He finds all hair types equally fun to work with: wavy, curly or straight. He’s inspired by old school music and fashion – he loves to observe people in the street and is often struck by their creativity. That includes his teammates at Jet Rhys, whose talent motivates him to continue developing his skills. Other specialties include keratin smoothing.

Ricky’s Cuts are $72

“At the end of the day, nothing makes me happier than the happiness of my clients with my work. It’s a real joy!”

Fun Fact: Ricky was the King of his neighborhood growing up in Brazil – where he also won a contest for being the fastest soft serve ice cream maker at McDonald’s.

Client Love

I had another stylist, Ricky. He's from Brazil and he's now taken over my hair styles. As my look has gone a little more "edgy", I needed someone to work with me... Anyone in the salon can accommodate your needs; but, I have a new appreciation for this stylist. Give him a try. You'll love the salon and Ricky. He listens and you'll walk out feeling beautiful.

Every time I come to this incredible salon I am greeted by every single person who helps me with my hair, with a huge welcome! I always leave, looking and feeling beautiful!! And I always feel so cared for! I am so lucky to have the most talented people in the world taking care of me and my hair! Ricky cuts it so precisely and with great texture and Sarah puts in incredible high lights and always blends my hair perfectly with my skin tones. My selfie photo doesn't quite do it total justice! They also give you a great discount if you refer a friend and the friend also gets a discount! Win win, all the way around!

Recently wanted to cut 7 inches off my hair, and made an appointment with Ricky. He did an amazing job on my 80's Blondie style bob. Highly recommend this salon to anyone. You won't leave unsatisfied. And did I mention the easy online booking? I literally woke up, decided yesterday was the day I needed to get my haircut, and booked it as I drank my morning coffee.

Ok, I don't have enough words to say how much I love this hair saloon! Everybody is so friendly. I have been their client for 6 years and counting. Ricky has been cutting my hair for the past 5 years and just love how open to suggestions and professional he is. I am a die hard bob style fan and Ricky is beyond amazing. Thank you Ricky!

Had a great experience at Jet Rhys this afternoon. Thank you Ricky for the tips on dealing with my extra fine hair and how to blow dry my bangs to get a cleaner look. The Jet Rhys salon here in Solana Beach is beautifully decorated and everyone has a smile and obviously enjoy working with each other. You really feel cared for when you step inside. Highly recommend Ricky and Jet Rhys.

I've seen a few different colorists at Jet Rhys over the years and have always been happy. Brock and Sam are very talented, I would highly recommend them both. However, I've always had a hard time trusting stylists because I've had my fair share of them cutting off too much, cutting too many layers or too few. I have left many hair appointments at other salons feeling generally unimpressed with the results, and was starting to accept that my long, thin hair will just always look blah. Enter Ricky, amazing stylist and overall wonderful person. I've never had a stylist explain in such detail why he does what he does, what is possible with your hair texture etc. By the time he grabs the scissors, I know exactly what to expect and can relax, knowing I'll get exactly what I want. In addition to being skilled and detail oriented, he is just soooo incredibly nice. Thank you Ricky for restoring my faith in hair stylists!

This was my first time at Jet Rhys. I was extremely nervous because not only was I about to get my hair cut by a new person, but also because I wanted to cut my hair a lot shorter and didn't know how it would turn out. I have always had long hair up to my butt and was ready for a change. I was greeted as soon as I walked in and taken care of right away. All the workers were very nice and made me feel welcomed. Ricky was my hairstylist. Before he began, he made sure I was ready for a drastic change and made suggestions, which made me trust him so I stayed committed with a shorter haircut. Ten inches later...my hair turned out better than I could have imagined and was exactly what I wanted! I'm so glad i came here. Ricky is absolutely great as a hairstylist and a person. I can't wait for my next haircut. As for the environment/ambiance it's exactly how it should be; clean, organized, relaxing, inviting, and everything nice. Thank you Jet Rhys for your excellence, especially in customer service!

I went to Jet Rhys for the first time yesterday. Ricky was fabulous and gave me the short pixie cut I had been unable to get from other hairstylists. I am so glad I found this salon! The cut flatters my face and I am already getting compliments. The salon is professional and welcoming, without being snooty. Prices are reasonable. I was able to get an appointment on short notice. One of the owners, Jet, went out of her way to make me feel welcome. Ricky is an excellent stylist and you can most definitely trust him with a short haircut. Oh, and the shampoo and head massage was incredibly relaxing. Top notch.
