Judges comments:

“The ritual center shows a forward-thinking salon owner. It’s refreshing to see a design theme incorporate unique profit centers as points of difference.”—Nunes

“The environment from the color bar to the technology throughout communicates ‘I’m in the hands of hair color experts and ready for a very special hair color experience.’”—Morehouse

“The color processing art wall is striking and creative.”—Pelafas

“In a formerly unused area of the salon, we created the Kerastate Ritual Center/Treatment Room where guests can experience deep conditioning treatments, with a head and scalp massage while sitting in a chair that delivers a complete pressure therapy massage.”
