When celebrity stylist, Kim Vo, came to the San Francisco Bay Area in search of the best of the best, he was very clear what he was looking for. 

"I'm looking for salons that create rich color, gorgeous cuts and stunning updos,"stated Vo.

NH2 was contacted and asked to participate in the seven county wide competition searching for the best salon in the Bay.

Model, Alanna White, received exactly what Kim Vo described that he was looking for. Multi-tonal lowlights were woven throughout White's light brown base color. Soft and romantic layers were added to meet the specific suggestion of Kim. Lastly, a timeless and expertly crafted updo was created. 

Round one was best of the county. NH2 SALON won for Marin.

"What an honor!" excitedly states Nicole Hitchcock, of NH2. 

Next, each of the seven Bay Area County winners competed for the coveted title of Best Salon of the Bay Area.

When Hitchcock and her model, Alanna, entered the ballroom full of salons and their models, they scanned the room looking for three things: models with rich color, soft layers and stunning updos as Vo had stated he wanted.

"I noticed a lot of really cool hair. Avant Garde updos, short spiky blonds, as well as some very polished work that was on point. I wondered if everyone was given the same information about what Kim Vo was looking for?" Hitchcock states as she reflects on the competition.

After a reception and speeches, winners were announced. 

Kim Vo announced that the Best Salon Award went to NH2 SALON. 

"They followed my direction to a 'T'. The work was perfect and the award is well-deserved." comments Vo at the Awards Ceremony.
