The mirrors lining Tiffany Lee Hair Design’s serene, white walls reflect a narrow, boutique hair studio filled with shelves of Goldwell coloring products. Within these intimate confines, artistically inclined stylists set to work on all types of hair, cutting, conditioning, and coloring locks and dressing up ‘dos with feather accessories as clients repose in cushy, black salon chairs interspersed with verdant potted plants. The haircare team is dedicated to delivering a personalized experience with every visit, eschewing the impersonal atmosphere and mechanized assembly lines of bigger salons.
Founded by brothers Dominic, Carlo, and Marco Commisso—members of a multigenerational Italian family of hairstylists—C3 Salon provides follicles a place to go for rejuvenation at the hands of expert stylists and the Kérastase line of products. The brothers and their supporting team stay abreast of current trends, combining their accrued knowledge with their diverse skills to cultivate sleek, modern looks that have been featured in numerous fashion shows, photo shoots, and training classes.
Surrounded by C3 Salon's glossy environs and vibrant, contemporary murals painted by Dominic, stylists conduct thorough consultations before every service. They then showcase intricate scissor choreography and sculpt locks to client specifications.:m]]
Not only do the Commisso family⎯three bothers and their parents⎯own Commisso and Company, they also make up the salon’s staff of stylists and colorists. The family of hair gurus cut and color manes inside the sleek salon, whose black-and-white theme runs from the sheer white curtains and black salon chairs to the mandatory tuxedos worn by all who enter.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
During 20-minute spray sessions, bronzing artists from Tan De Lis gild pale pelts with mobile spray-tan services that come straight to patrons' doors. Aestheticians first set up a tanning tent in about three minutes in a location of the client's choosing, be it in an office, in the backyard, or on the roof of the local bank. Lone-tan rangers can then opt for individual tanning sessions, and up to six people can take advantage of tanning parties, which include a complimentary bottle of champagne, as a prelude to birthday shindigs, girls' nights out, or bachelorette parties. The natural-looking bronze color lasts between five and seven days and is free of the orange streaks that can occur with take-home tanning creams or meltdowns at the burnt-sienna-crayon factory.
