BOSTON — Elan Sassoon, who has rarely handled scissors in his 38 years, is grooming a hair empire.
Since moving to Boston in 2006, Sassoon (the son of hairdressing great Vidal) assembled a team of investors to back three enterprises: a high-end salon concept called Mizu, which will open in Boston and New York this fall; a $22 million hair academy located near Boston University, and a chain of upscale suburban spa/salons called Green Tangerine. Three locations, each producing annual sales of about $2 million, have already opened in Greater Boston and Connecticut.
