BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - October 26, 2009) - Ewire -- Salon City, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SALN), an emerging media company, lifestyle brand and publisher of publications BE! Magazine and Salon City magazine, announced that on Friday, October 16th, one of its newest recipients of Salon City's HOT 100 Salons in America was honored at a special Salon City Press Party held at Brien O'Brien Salon in the international resort city of Palm Springs, CA.

O'Brien's party was supported by Salon City Network and the local representative of Bumble & bumble products. Invited VIP guests attended from across the Coachella Valley and included Salon City's founders, Steven & Annie Casciola, who came in from West Hollywood to make the HOT 100 Salon Event.

Owner Brien O'Brien, a native of Los Angeles, kicked off his 20-year career in hairdressing at Vidal Sassoon Academy in 1989. Skilled in precision haircutting, he later became a hair color expert and educator. Settling in Palm Springs in 2002, Brien realized he found the ideal location to bring both his passion for taking care of people and for the highest level of hairdressing together.

Brien's team member, stylist Janice Buller, cut and colored Annie Casciola's hair for the event, and Annie was ecstatic over the results. "Janice is a remarkable stylist and colorist," exclaimed Annie.

Buller joined Brian's salon on opening day. She splits her time between Palm Springs and Beverly Hills experiencing the best of both hair worlds. She previously worked for Vidal Sassoon Salon in Beverly Hills, California for over 25 years, and was creative director of the men's salon and later a system salon manager. Buller has participated in numerous hair shows, TV and editorial photo shoots, teaching and continuous education. She specializes in fine hair solutions for both men and women. Janice comments, "I believe that a great haircut is the foundation to great-looking hair. I take into consideration facial features, bone structure, and of course lifestyle to achieve the best look for the individual."
