To compliment theme of  Old Hollywood Glamour, classic portraits of timeless beauty icons, like Twiggy, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O, were pritned in sepia on metal and 3-D mounted on the walls for a dramatic effect.

Going with an Old Hollywood theme, Vanity Heights Salon commissioned Skyline Art Services to print classic portraits of timeless beauty icons, such as Twiggy, Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O, in sepia ink on metal and mount them on the walls.

Owner’s Quote: “We didn’t want a bulky front desk so had one designed from quartz and 3Form material that would fit the space perfectly. We had the Vanity logo engraved on the front, with lights that shine down on it so it’s highlighted during the day and glows through our windows at night.”
