Beauty is big business worldwide. This is most evident by noting the amazing transformation of what was once the corner "beauty shop" into today's salons and day spas, which are being designed by some of the world's hottest designers and architects. Providing a serene atmosphere that pampers and relaxes is as important for success as the products and services these retreats offer. Clients' demands are not just to look beautiful when they leave but also to feel beautiful when they are there. The salons and spas that can provide this perceived sense of beauty prove to be the most successful. These new shops represent the high-end of interior design and architecture and the atmosphere is as important as the service. "Spas and Salons" features the design details of the best and newest beauty shops and spas and uncovers, through interviews with the designers, what makes them so appealing, memorable, and desirable.
