Since 2003, Ride or Dye founder, Jonny Galindo had been imagining a space that both men and women would feel comfortable equally and that struck a unique balance between edgy-sophistication and down-to-earth hospitality… with that Ride or Dye was born.

What makes us different? We are laser focused on providing the best hair services.

The Ride or Dye Hair Stylist Coalition


Jonny Galindo, Owner / Master stylist

Jonny grew up in San Diego where he developed a love for the west coast culture: the music; choppers, the fashion, really the entire creative community. When he moved to Las Vegas he joined a band and quickly became not only the guitar player but the band’s hair stylist. He thought, “I should do this for a living.”

After earning his license, he went to work as an assistant at the award winning, Electric Chair Salon in Las Vegas where he continued on as a stylist for the next four years. He trained under some of the west coast’s most influential master stylists including one of the founders of “The Core”, Paul Mitchell’s principles of technique, geometry and body position through adaptive methods of cutting and freehand cutting. He was able to learn much and had many opportunities to do things like hair shows, fashion shows and photo shoots.

Jonny is a trained and certified Master Stylist with Paul Mitchell. Education is very important to him. He has attended over 100+ Paul Mitchell hands-on training classes. His focus is on consistency and keeping current on trends and techniques help him push his limits and provide better services for his guests. He specializes in cuts, color and extensions. Come in for a complimentary consultation so he can discuss what he can do for you.
