After reviewing thousands of salon décor images, the votes are in, and we have the 21 Salons of Distinction (also known as finalists) in the 2019 Salons of the Year.

The biggest trend this year? COLOR! After years of pristine white and gray interior spaces spaces, muted pastels are making their way into this year’s salon spaces through floral wall murals, contoured couches, accent furniture and appliances.

Watch SALON TODAY’s Facebook and Instagram pages over the next month as we profile each salon design and give a shout out to our favorite design trends leading up to announcing our Grand-Prize winner, who’ll capture the cover of our May/June issue and the Runners-Up titles.
