With this new hybrid, we are setting new standards and continue to strive to be the best of the best.”

To that I say, stand back Louis Sullivan, and make way for the new breed of spa industry leaders who wants to continue to have form follow function, with opportunity and excellence taking center stage. Our industry, like any other, leads by example. Forward-thinking institutes, such as the Aveda Fredric’s Institute in Indianapolis, have set forth a stunning example for the industry to follow.

Until next month,
