Owners’ Comments:

“Having the shampoo area in the most private location of the floor allows us to create a ‘journey into a place of peace and relaxation.’ Choosing the proper shampoo bowl with reclining chair and foot rest was key, and clients say the experience is one of the most enjoyable aspects of their visit.”

Judges:

“The private elevator entrace is a very elegant concept.”—Martin

“Having retail integrated into the design throughout the salon is a great idea.”—Crisafulli

“I love the Wella color lab, the focus on retail and the magical lighting.”--Patrascu
