“We have three distinct areas in our new building—the salon, the spa and the retail store called Lola. All are separated and private, and the soundproofing and soft, warm material create the perception that clients are worlds away from everyday life.”



“The Panache Café, abundant and stylish seating, fireplace and countertop all emphasize how much thought went into catering to guests at Panache.”—Ortmann


“The first impression when walking into the space is a very well-designed retail boutique. It’s very inviting and easy to shop and see the products with the illumination.”—McGwire
