“I’m obsessed with our Lather Lounge! It’s a sound-proofed room with dimmed lights, aromatherapy candles and relaxing music. We keep it very warm, which allows muscles in the body to thoroughly relax. Clients can fall asleep while they receive a complimentary five-minute scalp massage.”



JUDGES’ COMMENTS:

“The detail in the art, patterns and accessories all create an upscale chic design. The silver ceiling in the hair area, the leather front desk and the chair in the pedi lounge are just a few of my favorite design elements.”—Ortmann

“I like the modern twist of Hollywood glamour throughout the space—they did a wonderful job mixing the upscale feeling for their fashion-aware clients.”—McGwire

“The Lather Lounge is another example of a luxurious ‘getaway’ with dimmed lighting candlelight.”—Soukhopalova
