“Our pedicure guests climb into our tailor-made pedicure thrones, which are on raised platforms, giving them an elevated experience while providing better ergonomics for our team. Because our clientele is primarily corporate, we equipped each pedicure throne with USB ports and outlets for easy smartphone and laptop charging. As a result, many clients have team meetings or get work done during their service.”

by Stacey Soble

The gray-marbled, high-shine concrete flooring that are balanced with the masculine touch of black took boxes give Salon Ludic an eclectic feel. A high-top table where clients can relax and recharge their phones serves as a centerpiece in the salon, which has earned a Salons of Distinction honor in the 2019 Salons of the Year.
