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:


Judges' Comments:

“This space has an Old Hollywood vibe. From the artwork that disappears to the cappucino bar, Airbar clearly had 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
