Our Story

The moment you enter Studio C a beauty lounge, you instantly recognize a unique and simply perfect salon. You can expect to be blown-away right from the beginning.  At Studio C, customers will easily see that customer service and attention to detail is what this salon delivers.  The name Studio C is a beauty lounge that was created by owner and stylist, Christie Rawson. “A beauty lounge” was added to involve the airy, contemporary and relaxed feeling of the salon. Christie envisioned Studio C throughout many years of careful planing.  Christie has been in the business for more than 20 years. With Christie’s experience and the the perfect timing, Christie built Studio C on the principals of exceptional customer service, and providing clientele with an unforgettable experience. She hopes they will only desire to return for more pampering. Stylists at Studio C combine great customer service with a friendly attitude, experience backgrounds, and a well-educated demeanor.

Carefully selected from local and nation wide metropolitan salons, Christie emphasizes these mentioned qualities as a requirement to join the Studio C team. Co-owner and husband Mario Rawson, a veteran Boeing 737 Captain for Southwest Airlines, has brought the successful airlines concept of “treat your employees well, and they will help your business succeed” to the salon. “A highly motivated and productive staff is part of the foundation for success at Studio C,” says Mario.
