Joel Warren has a vision for the future of hair salons — and it’s going to play out in Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
Warren’s new concept, called The Salon Project, is a salon-shop hybrid with a strong emphasis on personalized services and retail enhanced by augmented reality — a model Warren sees as a solution to the flagging salon business.
