If you ask salon owner Juan Florentino to describe his 3,900-square foot salon in Beverly Hills, he would say âmodern, Hollywood, glam.â And that description couldnât be more accurate. The Juan Florentino salon, in the heart of star-studded Beverly Hills, goes to great lengths for full client comfort: even offering clients disconnected VIP rooms for total privacy needs and a backdoor entrance for full seclusion. Sprinkled throughout the space are paintings of faces from pop culture: Elvis, Marilyn, Bob Dylan and Elizabeth Taylor.
Itâs constructed with contemporary, steamlined features like the $60,000 track lighting, and $22,000 wood floors.
Here, Florentino points out the important elements of the design.
âThese rooms are designed to serve our clients who have full-privacy needs. This is one of the features of the salon design we are most proud of. We have created a space that can accommodate any client, those who prefer exclusive privacy and those who do not.â
âOur chic product shelving that displays our retail offerings is located right by the entrance of the salon. It commands attention, whether the client is on her way in or on her way out. The retail shelves, stocked with Kerastase and Davines products, are strategically viewable from the waiting area.â
âHere, in the shampoo area, we practice a Japanese shampooing technique that includes a complimentary relaxing head massage. The massage helps clients fully relax and drift away to a Zen-like world, surrounded by our soothing, calm colors and lighting design.â
âHere, at our Takara Belmont styling stations, our staff serves complimentary beverages including Starbucks coffee, hot chocolate, cappuccinos and tea. We offer a professional environment which is inviting, elegant and pleasant.â
