Working with designer Leslie McGwire, Toni and Pat Widing decided a round centralized front desk would be the focal point of their salon design. “The desk is placed perfectly in the floor plan for the clients who are entering and exiting from two sides of the building,” says Toni. “A dramatic drop ceiling above the desk with a gorgeous custom chandelier adds the sparkle in our spacious salon.”

Styling stations are split in two areas of the salon which encourages the feeling of a private setting, while the colors of the custom millwork cabinetry coordinate throughout the salon for a streamline design. Lighting also played a main role in the design. Minardi Color Perfect Salon Lighting above each station and shampoo bowl helps the team deliver great color results, and background lighting in the retail area encourage product purchases.
