Salons of the Year 2012 Winners

A summary of the Salons of the Year winners.

Salon of Distinction: Fringe

I love Fringe’s interplay of colors and textures flowing from the gorgeous focal ‘brick’ wall to the floor to the rich styling stations.

Grand-Prize Winner: Ginger Bay Salon and Spa

AT FIRST GLANCE, the interior of Ginger Bay Salon and Spa in Town and Country, Missouri, simply reads gorgeous.

First Runner Up: Shin

WHEN SHIN AN MOVED to Chicago from her hometown in Wisconsin in 1993, she met architect and designer Suhail and was immediately inspired by his passion and creative vision.

Second Runner Up: Bespoke Hair Artisans

WHEN LISA WILLIAMS named her salon, she was inspired by the English tradition of “bespoke” tailoring, a term coined after a group of London tailors who created custom designs for each client.

Third Runner Up: Roca Salon & Spa

RHONDA AND ROD CAVNER admit they take a little secret pleasure in observing new clients as they come into Roca Salon and Spa.

Salon of Distinction: Van Michael Salon, Sandy Springs

“We always communicate with our clients through e-mail and social networking sites such as Facebook. Our tagline for this project was, ‘Everyone needs a make-over.’”

Salon of Distinction: Trilogy Salon

“One of our favorite features is a vintage barn door on a sliding rail that separates the front reception area from the styling area. One of the owners found inspiration for this idea from a door on a beautiful Mexican hotel while on her honeymoon.”

Salon of Distinction: Strands Studio for Hair

“The biggest challenge about our space was the long narrow unit. I strived to avoid a bowling alley look, by dividing it into areas separated by walls of mosaic tiles and tumbled stones and using accent lighting to create an open space.”
