Judges comments:

“It had me at the front door. I love the random whimsical touches, like the flowers everywhere, the red table and the perfectly matched blue bottles on the nail tables."  —Morehouse

“The linear elements and soft modern colors are pleasing and appealing.” —Pelafas

“Great exterior floods the space with natural light.” —Jercha

“We love the colors chosen for the front desk, or what we call the smile of the salon. The red stone surface is the lipstick and when combined with the carefully selected lighting fixtures and multi-surfaced mirror, it creates a real ‘wow’ upon entering.”
