“Our remodeled color processing area is a warm refuge that allows clients to pass the time with ease. Clients sit around a beautiful, custom-designed wooden table and are able to access computers, relax with a book or glass of wine or view one of the many video attractions playing in surrounding areas.”

 

JUDGES’ COMMENTS:

“The wall covering in the shampoo room gives an element of surprise creating a very edgy and trendy look.”—McGwire

“Loved the use of giant lampshades, the industrial ceiling and how it was diffused, and the floating suspended mirrors.”—Labos

“This salon was particularly focused on profitability when making their design choices. The traffic flow, the individual ‘points’ of service such as circular concierge, flexible retail displays and open color bar, provide optimum productivity while maintaining the highest standards in customer service.”—Soukhopalova
