Judges comments:

“Love the artwork in this salon!”


“This space is a great example of less is more. The designer did a great job of putting together a lot of interesting elements that harmonize with each other, rather than compete for attention.”


“Very cool logo design on wall. Urban and industrial, yet warm and inviting.”


“The entire purpose of remodeling the existing salon was to enhance the customer experience and increase productivity. We redesigned the previous space to proficiently handle triple the customer load. We added styling and color stations, a second bathroom, additional lighting/electrical, more shampoo bowls and an open color bar along with modern, upscale design elements.”
