Project description

My partner and myself are opening up a hair salon in  California. (40 north of L.A.) We are looking for a fresh new look that has some sassiness. Our locations has a lot of visibility and we want our out sign to stand out! 
Looking for UPSCALE, FUN as well as UNIQUE. We like the combination of lots of curves with some modern elements too. We want the "eLLe" part of the name to stand out. We also prefer lower case "e" 's and upper case "L" 's for the font in the "eLLe". Our other thoughts are possibly a swirlier "Salon" and more modern or contemporary "eLLe". Using different fonts. We would like the "studio & spa" to be much smaller and then the main name of the salon.

We did not state that we wanted emblem or pectoral but feel free to be as creative as you want.
Once we get our logo we plan on getting a metal sign with back lighting. 
We are not sure if we want to use color in our logo or stick with simple (Black, pewter or silver).
