Give us a Tour!As our editorial team wraps up judging for the 2013 SALON TODAY 200 and begins the awesome responsibility of pulling our special January/February coverage together, it's time for salon and spa owners to give us a visual tour of their new decors. And, this year we've made it easier than ever!

If your salon or spa space was either newly opened or renovated between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2012, then you are eligible to enter the SALONS OF THE YEAR, the industry's most prestigious interior design competition. Simply submit 10 images that show off your new design, fill out the SOTY application, and send it in.

The top designs will be featured in our June 2013 coverage, and the grand-prize winner will take a place of honor on our cover.

Take your choice! This year there are two ways you can enter. You can visit salonsoftheyear.com and download a copy of the application, fill it in manually and send it in with your images and your application fee. OR, you can fill out our new online SOTY application, upload your images and pay the entry fee with a credit card. (Or, if you're worried about uploading the images, you can choose to fill out the online application and send in your CD with your images separately.) CLICK here to access either the downloadable application or the new online entry system.

Entries must be postmarked or entered into the online system by January 31, 2013. If you have any questions, contact Joyce Alverio at [email protected]

Go ahead, send it in! We can't wait to tour your salon!
