With a client list that reads more like movie credits—with Eva Mendes, Amy Adams and Eva Longoria making the cut—the look of the new Peter Ishkhans at Joseph Martin Salon in Beverly Hills, California, had to be spot-on stylish. The result was a salon that is open, airy and elegant, with soaring ceilings, illuminating natural light, beautiful wood floors and a secluded upstairs area. The large mirrors, white wood accents and attractive retail area—products arranged on tall, white bookshelves—make for a bright, clean atmosphere, without appearing too minimalist.

“I wanted to bring our clients to a place where they could really feel welcomed and recognized; our clients are our family,” says Peter Ishkhans, salon owner. “We are passionate about making their hair healthy and creating a look that harmonizes their make-up, fashion, personality and lifestyle.”
