About

Root’s Nouveau is Columbia’s premier hair and body shop, offering a full spectrum of services to keep you looking and feeling your best — including hair styling, nails, waxing, massage and facials.

Founded by Tim Root, who has been styling hair for over 15 years, Root’s Nouveau is proud to serve all of the Columbia area with premium hair and beauty services.

Root founded his first salon, Creative Beauty Stop, in his hometown of Marshall, Mo., in 1996 right after graduating from the American College of Hair Design.

In 2001, Root moved to Columbia and worked at Salon DeCapello as its creative director. In 2005 Root set off on his own again, founding Root’s Nouveau. The very successful salon grew quickly and soon added a variety of talented and creative independent operators.

Root’s signature trademark is classic to contemporary with an urban flair.

Root lives in Columbia with his husband Doug and Basset Hound Dusty.
