Salon of the Year: Centro W Salon
THE GOLD STANDARD
Some would say that Centro W Salon sets the golden standard for salons in the city. With its black-and-gold décor and open spaces, it’s a sanctuary for the stylish. Here, dedicated artists take special pride in their reputation for creating sleek urban styles, as well as the quality, heartfelt service. Founder and creative director Kevin Woo says the warm gold lights contrasted against the intimate and sleek black walls and floors were meant to create a chic and private space, specially designed with the salon’s long-held fans and loyal clients in mind. “I wanted a space that was beautiful, intimate, and comfortable … as a thank you to those who continually support us.”
Not one to rest on his laurels—having taken the forefront of hair artistry for nearly two decades now—Kevin constantly engages in the education of his talented team. Beyond ensuring everyone stays at the top of their game, he spurs them on to success, acknowledging that the strength of a salon is the strength of a team as a whole.
WHY BAZAAR LOVES IT
The accolade-collecting salon takes its consumer journey one step further, introducing a customer’s satisfaction guarantee. Vowing to provide a free touch-up within seven days of cuts, colours, perms, and rebonding services that fall short of expecations, it is easy to see why Centro W is the city’s go-to salon for luxury hairdressing. Led by Kevin, the L’Oréal artistic ambassador armed with commitment, flair, and an unparalleled hunger for perfection, the 14-strong team ensures that clients walk home with a bounce in their step and a sparkle in their eye—a testament to their world-class prowess, vision, and style.
