MOST 25-YEAR-OLDS don’t have facelifts, but
when you’re talking about an established salon
business, a little nip and tuck may be in order. As
the Joseph Cozza Salon celebrated its silver year
in the heart of San Francisco’s style district,
owners Joseph Cozza and Joe Bisazza
transformed its 9,300 square feet into
a sleek and contemporary space.

“We’ve brought the best stylists
and estheticians together to offer expanded
services and treatments in our beautiful, spacious
new salon,” Cozza says.

Featuring an open-floor layout and floor-toceiling
windows, Joseph Cozza offers clients the
expertise, luxury and lively ambience of a Fifth
Avenue location in Northern California’s largest
full-service salon. Here, Cozza takes SALON
TODAY on a tour through his salon.

“My vision
has always
been to
offer our
clients a fun,
upbeat but
where they
can relax
and escape
the city’s
hectic pace
for a bit.” —Joseph Cozza

“The salon offers a separate
make-up room with four
custom-built styling stations
overlooking Maiden Lane.
The beauty bar in the center
of the room showcases and
houses a selection of fine
make-up products and accessories.”

“Sumptuous seating greets guests in
the main lobby, accented by original
ceramic pieces created especially
for the salon by renowned artist Lisa
DiFacio. A new full-service skin care
department and wellness spa features
stunning décor, separate seating,
private rooms for facials and massage,
private showers, and advanced skin
care technology and services available
in a non-medical facility.”
