Judges comments:

“Everything in this room flows perfectly and is very pleasing to the senses.”


“Very cool silver metal dividers between stations. Seems urban.”


“This salon hits the mark with the beautiful use of materials. The environment is very soothing.”

—Sansevero and Cronk

“I wanted to create a comfortable yet elegant environment using sleek lines and hints of nature. The custom-made, sandstone front desk creates a solid foundation, making it obvious to clients that we intend to be here for years to come. The dramatic Brazilian rosewood floors, tranquil colors and metal accents carry the ‘nature’ theme throughout the salon.”
