Every year we get a glimpse of what’s trending in the salon and spa world, thanks to the various submissions to the Salons of Year competition. And 2018 didn’t fail to give us the inside scoop. We discovered some delightful details we hope will inspire your future salon renovations. Get ready to mark your favorites.
The design inspiration behind Voss Salon in Dallas, Texas, was a high-end jewelry store. The salon was a must-add to our 2018 Salons of Distinction list because of its clean and cohesive design that made the entire salon look upscale.
The "Google Earth" floor inside Studio 285 salon in Evans, Georgia, immediately made the salon a standout contender for the 2018 Salons of the Year and a must-add to our 2018 Salons of Distinction list.
Nova Salon's exteriors is consistent with Louisville's historic Crescent Hill neighborhood, and it's interior includes vaulted ceilings and a clean design. The cohesive design earned it a spot as a 2018 Salon of Distinction.
This stunningly elegant salon in New York City made our list of 2018 Salons of Distinction, thanks to its brass lighting fixtures and its custom-cut brass-raised lettering, as well as many other details.
We saw several salons remove the idea of a front desk in this year's submissions, and Lavish Salon in Friendswood, Texas, was on trend. It's moss-covered walls were also unique, and the salon earned a spot as a 2018 Salon of Distinction.
Great salon design can happen at home or across the pond, and Hannah London salon in London, England, proved it designed a spot as a 2018 Salon of Distinction with its stunning throne-like pedicure chairs and swan-neck taps.
