With all the chaos in today’s world, SALON TODAY is excited to bring something gorgeous to brighten your day and get your imagination pumping on your next great salon—our 20 finalists in the 2021 SALONS OF THE YEAR competition.
Originally launched in our sister publication MODERN SALON more than 40 years ago, SALONS OF THE YEAR is a salon design competition that invites owners who have opened a new salon or renovated an existing one in the past two years to submit professionally shot images of the finished look and tell us about their design choices.
Each entry is judged in phases by the editorial team at SALON TODAY and MODERN SALON, who pick the finalists, and eventually select the grand prize winner and the runners up.
Each salon will be featured in our Summer 2021 issue of SALON TODAY, in the digital edition, as well as in individual stories on our website. In the coming weeks, we will announce the runners-up and the Grand Prize Winner, who will grace the cover of the Summer issue.
