LEWISTON — Hair we grow again! Owners Christina and Breeana Tucci have set up shop in a new location, but close to the most recent one in the former Black Shark building at 938 Sabattus St.

The new salon is at 1065 Sabattus St. and the owners said the first big improvement customers have already noticed is the ample parking. The shop is at the corner of Pond Road, where there is a stoplight.

The new salon is about 2,700 square feet, more than double the old salon’s 1,200 square feet, Christina Tucci said. That also means they have seven people working there seven days a week.

A unique aspect of Tucci + Co. is it’s a mixture of skill sets to meet almost any customer’s needs. There are two barbers — Christina is one — three cosmetologists, including Breeana, one apprentice cosmetologist and a new nail technician.

They have one empty chair for anyone interested and an entire room that will become either home to a new aesthetician, who typically do facials, waxing and skin treatments, or a massage therapist.

It’s sounding more like a spa all the time, one of their goals all along.

The couple started their business in the fall of 2020 in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic in a 400-square-foot space.

Christina Tucci said business is great and unfortunately that means, for now, bookings are by appointment only. The salon is on Facebook and Instagram, or can be reached at 207-740-9098.
