Andreas Hogue Captures the 2020 Salons of the Year Design Competition

With its playful atmosphere and design surprises around every corner, Andreas Hogue Salon in Vernon Hills, Illinois, captured the Grand-Prize with the 2020 Salons of the Year, including the cover of the May/June 2020 issue.

“Our judges loved the 18-foot retail wall with the librarian’s ladder that also served as a color-filled art element, the asymmetrical floating color bar and the fun-filled swing that entices clients to take selfies of their new styles,” says Stacey Soble, director of brand content strategy for SALON TODAY. “The designers maintained an open concept in the wedge-shaped space by cleverly clustering the restrooms, lather longue, laundry, breakroom and offices to one area and topped it with a loft, allowing the client to see the full width and depth of the space from most vantage points.”
