About Us

Red Comb Salon is a family-owned hair salon. With our lead stylist, Leslye, at the helm, our mission is to provide our clients with quality service that is both personable and efficient, at a very reasonable price. We consider our team of employees as extended family members, and our customers as a further extension of our “Red Comb Family.”

The Origin of “Red Comb”

Leslye worked as a hair stylist for 14 years at the salon that previously occupied the unit in the Heritage Park shopping plaza. When Hair Clique closed their doors, she was deeply saddened at the idea that she could no longer work where she had been happy for many years. We recognized this an opportunity and the most meaningful way in which we could offer our support to our daughter-in-law, Leslye, and our son, Mark, during the most difficult year of their lives. Just 10 months earlier, they lost their son who had succumbed to brain cancer. Red was Tyler’s favorite color. Thus our inspiration for the business name was drawn from Tyler, and ultimately, the inception of Red Comb Salon.

The Red Comb Community Connection

Through our niche: The Red Comb Connection, our team reaches out beyond the salon doors to support the community. It is simply our family’s way of saying, “Thank you!” and “We care.” We are a sponsor of the Suisun American Little League, and two causes in particular, are close to our hearts: cancer research and literacy. For more information on our Cancer Awareness and Literacy Awareness Programs, please contact us via email. If you are interested in joining us as a volunteer in any of our community projects, please let us know. It is our hope that our family’s joint-effort endeavor positively impacts the lives of others. It is in this spirit that we welcome you to join our Red Comb team!
