Ask a local about Suki's you'll likely hear "That's the place my mother, sister and self-have been coming for generations." Fair statement. We have been painting this town pink for over 46 years. Ask a salon around the world what is Suki's and you likely hear about our ongoing reputation for creative, avant garde artistic showmanship.

The truth is we are proudly both but if you are one of the first categories, let me take you behind the curtain and introduce our 2019 Contessa Awards Participants. The Artists, their Inspirations and the detailed work that goes into every strand of pure beauty in hair design. 

Finally, we are allowed to show you!

Having witnessed the 3-day photoshoot, having talked to participants abouth their months of detailed planning, I feel privilaged. To watch that level of creativity and teamwork is an inspiring thing.

So I have this challenge for you. It's simple really,

If you are inspired with what you see. Tell someone, tell your Mom, your sister, your friend. BUT reach out to our stylist and tell them that you see them, and appreciate their dedication. Wish them your best, it will make their day.

Share in our pride, if you are our guest, it's your pride too.
