Hey Stylists! We've been in a lot of salons lately, so we thought we'd share some ideas on Salon design - so this post is just for you.
In an industry where word of mouth is a critical key to success it is important that the experience for the client is nothing short of top notch. The atmosphere of the salon is likely the first thing that the client will notice and it is crucial that the design exudes a certain personality. Afterall, you are an artist. By expressing yourself through the design of your space it will speak lengths about your capabilities to do hair. It is particularly important upon receiving new clientele when first impressions can make or break the relationship. She needs to feel a sense of comfort in order to wash away any anxiety that she may be feeling.
Maybe you are thinking about remodeling your space or would like to freshen up the look of your salon, well now is the time to create an experience that will have everyone talking. Thankfully, MBFH has come equipped with ideas that will knock your artisitic socks off. We fell head over heels in love with the design of Salon Himmelblau located in Italy. This "Alice in Wonderland," ethereal salon was featured in the October issue of Interior Design magazine. Brace your self for this one...
Maybe you don't want something quite so trendy. Here is an example of a salon that radiates success right here in Indianapolis. David & Mary Salon Spa have created a clean modern look that overwhelms clients with a sense of serenity melded with luxury from the moment they enter. I'd be willing to guess that they attribute their success not only to their talent, welcoming demeanor, but also to their design asethic that creates an experience unlike any other.
Create a design experience that will have your client not only talking about how great her hair looks but how the atmosphere refreshed her. If she likes what she sees she will tell her friends and write a great review of the stylist and salon on My Best Friends Hair.com. Just remember, the experience matters.
