As stylists orbit patrons, their shears purr through hair and the dirty-blond hardwood floors click beneath their heels. Fresh flowers sway, as though nodding to the lilting rhythm as the aesthetes coif locks, using natural and organic products from brands including AG Hair whenever possible. At the salon, prices are set on a tiered system to reflect each employee’s level of training and ability to refrain from singing "Sweet Caroline" into a hairbrush. Clover Salon constantly encourages each stylist to advance to the next level of know-how, and the team also performs waxing, nailcare, and makeup services.
The licensed aestheticians at Advanced Skin Care customize skincare regimes for every type of client, from those looking for a quick and relaxing facial to others struggling with serious skin problems. Every appointment begins with a consultation, allowing the aesthetician to formulate the best treatment plan and choose the most apt products, be it an all-natural formula free from dyes and perfumes, such as one by Epicuren, or a serum from the stock of medical-grade products, such as one from Cellex-C. The latter product line comes in handy during ultrasound treatments that help stimulate collagen and soften lines, wrinkles, and scar tissues. Beyond smoothing and repairing complexions, Advanced Skin Care’s team enhances eyes and lips with makeup applications. They use products by Jane Iredale and Youngblood, and promise to keep fake beauty marks and cycloptic eyes a secret.
Traditional red, white, and blue barber stripes accent each of Carson Coonce's three barber shops—from the old wooden sign outside the original 1955 Plymouth shop, to the scissor-shaped awning at the Livonia location—and the interior echoes the same classic barbershop feel.

Massage therapists dispense Swedish and myofascial-release massages, working out knots with the help of heated stones and bamboo rods.
