Owners’ Comments:

 

“When a client sits in the chair at one of our eight stations, there is a black, white and lilac painting in front of them. The stylist flicks a switch and the canvas disappears and the client sees her image in the mirror behind. It is a definite ‘Wow’ factor.”

 

Judges’ Comments:

 

“This space has an Old Hollywood vibe. From the artwork that disappears to the cappucino bar, Airbar clearly has the client experience in mind.” — Martin

 

“The framed artwork suspended in front of each styling chair is a unique, whimsical touch that lets clients know they are in a fun and creative space.”  Hillenmeyer

 

“The salon is warm, youthful and college-like.”  Grissler
