Judges comments: “Loved how the compartments were identified and branded.” — Wagner “I like the educational aspect of hair color in this salon—the open color bar and lab allow the client to appreciate the science and art behind color processing.” — Soukhopalov

“One of the areas we are most proud of is our Central Vacuum System. Each styling station has an internal vacuum system installed. The hair is swept into a box at the center of the station. The hair is then transported to a central disposal area. This system was put in to provide a consistently clean salon.”
