.salon is a delegated TLD in ICANN's New gTLD Program. Donuts's (Outer Orchard, LLC) application succeeded and the TLD was delegated to the Root Zone on 5 December 2015. [1]


  1. Aesthetics Practitioners Advisory Network Pty Ltd
  2. DaySmart Software
  3. Donuts (Outer Orchard, LLC) - This applicant submitted a Public Interest Commitment, which can be downloaded here.
  4. L'Oréal[2]


L'Oréal's application was issued a GAC Early Warning from the representative of Australia and GAC Chair, Heather Dryden. The warning system is noted as a strong recommendation on behalf of national governments to the ICANN Board that a given TLD application should be denied as it stands. Applicants are encouraged to work with objecting GAC members.[3]

The warning states that the applicant is "seeking exclusive access to a common generic string .. that relates to a broad market sector," which Ms. Dryden notes could have unintended consequences and a negative impact on competition.[4]
