All the 9 finalists:
Aldo Coppola – UAE
Elegance and sumptuousness typical of Coppola’s image are interpreted to a T, even in this Middle East salon in Abu Dhabi.
Alexandre de Paris – South Korea
A true place of welcome and comfort for Alexandre de Paris’s location in Seoul. Soft lights and dizzying heights contribute to an almost mystique atmosphere.
Arkhe – Japan
Metal and lightness. A seemingly impossible combination, yet the Japanese Arkhe salon succeeds in performing this miracle in downtown Tokyo.
Baroque Ripon – United Kingdom
When the Baroque mood is reinvented and comes to life. This is the spirit of Ripon, in the United Kingdom, that tastefully merges a retro style with a hi-tech soul.
Claque la mouche – Sweden
The salon you would never expect. Brimming with “out-of -the-box” details, this salon in Stockholm proposes a relaxed, hipster image where comfort and good taste go hand in hand.
Ebil Hair – Turkey
Rational, hi-tech space, yet warm and welcoming. This salon in Istanbul makes light and reflections its strongpoint, combining the warmth of wood with informal and comfy furnishing.
Factory  – Spain
Wood and a minimalist mood for this salon in Barcelona. Pure white as a background for the technical outfitting combined with objects that spur curiosity and evoke emotions: suitcases, empty frames, and trunks.
Kapsalon – Belgium
Optical protagonist. In the Genk salon the geometric contrasts alternate with the light of metal and the warmth of wood for a rich and contemporary end result.
Moss Salon – Poland
A green corner brimming with style in Krakow. Full colours, sinuous forms, and inviting spaces are the winning elements of this Polish salon.
