MOST 25-YEAR-OLDS don't have facelifts, but when you're talking about an established salon business, a little nip and tuck may be in order. As the Joseph Cozza Salon celebrated its silver year in the heart of San Francisco's style district, owners Joseph Cozza and Joe Bisazza transformed its 9,300 square feet into a sleek and contemporary space.

"We've brought the best stylists and estheticians together to offer expanded services and treatments in our beautiful, spacious new salon," Cozza says.

Featuring an open-floor layout and floor-toceiling windows, Joseph Cozza offers clients the expertise, luxury and lively ambience of a Fifth Avenue location in Northern California's largest full-service salon. Here, Cozza takes SALON TODAY on a tour through his salon.

"My vision has always been to offer our clients a fun, upbeat but luxurious atmosphere where they can relax and escape the city's hectic pace for a bit." -Joseph Cozza
