3 C's Salon
Specializes in curls, cut, color and more
Cuts, curls and color: That’s what the 3 C’s stand for in 3C’s Hair Salon on Green Bag Road.
But the business, owner Tricia Goodwin said, is doing a whole lot more than that trilogy of services these days.
“When I opened, it was just me doing hair, so that’s what I did, I did the cut, the curl, the perms, color, so that’s how we came up with that,” she said.
The salon has been established for 15 years, but has been situated next to Sportsman’s Emporium and Chippy’s Transmission for 11 years.
“We offer a different variety of services with a variety of different people. Everybody kind of specializes in different things,” Goodwin said.
There are several hairdressers, a make-up specialist and even a massage therapist all working out of Goodwin’s salon. So she’s happy to say the variety of features offered is pretty extensive, including hair styling and cuts, color (including balayage), hair extensions, facials, massage, perms, roller sets, waxing, pedicures and manicures.
“Actually we specialize in just about everything you want to do,” Goodwin said, adding that they’re even dabbling in bright, bold colors.
“I’ve been having a lot of fun with the rainbow colors. I really enjoy doing those. I think they’re fun,” Goodwin said.
The salon carries products from Paul Mitchell and Verb.
Goodwin, who graduated from Morgantown Beauty Academy in 1988, said she worked for multiple salons before settling down with her own business. And even though 3C’s has been open 15 years, she said she still loves going to work every day.
The salon is open Tuesday-Friday and Saturday by appointment.
“We love to do walk-ins if there’s somebody available,” Goodwin said.
As for the prices, she said she tries to stay competitive with other salons.
“We don’t do any a la carte. Your prices include your cut and your style and your service that you’re getting at the time,” she said.
And it’s a family business, Goodwin said, a place where men, women and children can all go to get their hair done. She said it also has that family feeling when you walk in the door; everyone knows everyone.
“I mean I’ve had people that I’ve done their hair for 27 years. They followed me everywhere,” she said.
One of those long-time customers is Candy Berry, who’s been having Goodwin do her hair for at least 10 years. During a recent appointment at 3C’s for a color, highlights and trim, Berry said she appreciated Goodwin’s consistent work.
“She does the best color, the best perms and I let her do what she wants, and it always turns out great,” Berry said. “I trust her immensely.”
