Award Winning Luxury

Headlines is home to some of the best salon design around -- and also to the 2012 Salon of the Year Award and 2012 Salon Design of the Year Award.
When Gayle Fulbright and Letty Skinner set out to design their dream salon, they enlisted the help of THE INDUSTRY SOURCE Salon and Spa Design Center Designer Leslie McGwire -- and the end result exceeded their every expectation.
Now, Headlines has been voted one of the top 200 salons in the country for the last five years by Salon Today Magazine and this year received Salon Today's Salon of the Year 2012 award. It is also one of the top five salons in the nation in the running for North American Hairstyling Awards' 2012 Salon Design of the Year, which will be determined in July in Las Vegas.
One of the most important design elements in the salon is the beautiful custom made styling stations. White light glows from either side of the frameless mirrors. The work areas are on the sides of the unit, eliminating clutter and creating a very clean, slick look.
The space includes a very unique chemical processing table with a textured stainless steel top. Six acrylic hydraulic chairs with deep purple cushions around the table add to the uniqueness of this area. But perhaps the largest focal point in the salon is the gorgeous bubble chandelier that is centered over the chemical processing table and can be seen from every angle of the salon.

On the right: About Face -- The highly custom makeup area called About Face is at the front of the salon for full consultations or quick touch ups for clients on their way out the door. The makeup unit has a built-in trash cabinet and a unique area for paper towels. The mirror features the same side lights as the styling stations.
Below: Lather Lounge -- In the Lather Lounge, a beautiful mural of white bark trees on the back wall faces clients. The room's lighting, its deep purple ceiling and overall atmosphere is one of total relaxation.
