This is

our story

After 15 years of making New York City women look and feel beautiful, Christopher Downs brought his style, skills, passion and sensibility to Tiburon and Mill Valley, California. 

Wanting to create more than just a typical salon, he envisioned a space that felt inviting, comfortable, gracious and intimate. Like walking into a good friend's home.

Inspired by the casual elegance that defines the Hamptons, one of his favorite spots, Christopher blended a traditional East Coast aesthetic with our laid back West Coast vibe.

Christopher Salon & Home is a boutique salon offering hair cutting, coloring, and styling in an intimate atmosphere specializing in one-on-one service.  

Christopher and his staff are thoughtful and meticulous about every element of the salon - from the greeting you receive at the front desk to the skill and commitment of the stylists to the contemporary, yet timeless, design of the space.

You will find some of the best hair care products from around the world, along with fun, unique, and elegant decor, candles and books - the perfect hostess gift and something lovely for your own home.  

We look forward to seeing you soon.
