“The circular service area is my favorite room of all the entries.The front retail area encourages shopping while introducing the guest to the salon’s style and brand.”—Ortmann

 

“The ‘theater in the round’ idea for the floor plan works well with the drop ceiling design.”—McGwire

 

“Having the ability to incorporate all styling areas around the color bar must create a very lively, creative atmosphere for both stylists and clients on a busy day. It is also commendable that the owner chose to incorporate LED lighting throughout the salon to its full extent, being both environmentally and cost effective.”—Soukhopalova
