Dainty Salon

Maggie Mulhern | August 10, 2012 | 7:09 AM

The Dainty Salon in Springfield, NJ, was under construction for weeks this summer while owner Jessica Matos put the finishing touches on her pretty and tasteful space. Instead of covering the windows with old newspapers during the construction phase, Jessica took the covers and beautiful inside pages of old Modern Salon Magazines to post to the outside world. "It really makes sense," she told me when I stopped in for a visit. "While I didn't want the public to look in during construction, I did want them to get a peek at what was coming...great beauty!"

When it came time to take the pages down, Jessica didn't have the heart to trash Modern (YAY!). Instead, she shredded the papers, filled in a vase and now uses as an art decoration at the entrance to Dainty. We DO love it when salons use our covers and pages to either decorate the salon, use as images for client discussion or as artist inspiration, but still appreciate this as a unqiue alternative.
