“The dramatic curtains and high, curved ceiling make you feel as if you are entering a grand hotel.”—Jercha

“Upscale guests should enjoy this salon’s efforts to create a stylish yet comfortable space.”—Koerner

“One of our favorite features is a vintage barn door on a sliding rail that separates the front reception area from the styling area. One of the owners found inspiration for this idea from a door on a beautiful Mexican hotel while on her honeymoon.”
