Our 2015 Salons of the Year finalists showcase a new trend in salon decor where cool, clean and crisp design—punctuated with interesting pops of color through furniture and artwork—serve as the canvas for the artistry of hairdressing. The austere backdrop puts the client and her beauty metamorphosis on center stage.
The Grand Prize winner of this year’s competition and our 2015 June cover won’t be revealed until our special owner’s gathering at the Premiere Orlando International Beauty Event on May 30. In the meantime, meet our finalists, and check back on May 30th to learn the grand prize winner, see our June cover and tour each of these salon interiors.
