Alternating walls of shiplap and aged metal barn siding creates a rugged, masculine feel within 1922 Men's Grooming.
Whether seated in the scrolled back manicure chairs or snuggled into the sumptuous pedicure thrones, clients are pampered at LaBelle Nail Bar.
Cleints are welcomed into the Anthony DeFranco Salon with 13-foot-tall ceilings adorned with dramatic stalactite lighting pendants above a sensous onyx reception desk.
At Rob Peetoom Williamsburg, the salon floor is punctuated by crisp white chairs, light stone tiles and century-old dark wood columns.
The final judging results are in and Penzone Salon + Spa Dublin, owned by Debra and Charles Penzone in Dublin, Ohio, captures the top honor in SALON TODAY’s 2019 Salons of the Year. In addition to the title, the salon will appear on the cover of the May/June 2019 magazine.
