White City Shopping Centre, London
We were appointed to design fit out and project manage a new build flagship store for Canterbury of New Zealand. This is set in the UK's largest shopping development, London's White City. For this project, we turned the designer's concept into a working package to obtain the landlord's detailed construction approval, in a record 14 days.

Hair Salon Design

Thinking of opening a new hair salon or planning to revamp your current one?

Start with basics for your salon. You must first test your water pressure, local water companies will do this for you. You need a minimum of 1.75 to 2.5 bar of water pressure otherwise a booster pump will be necessary. Your wash area should be close to the water and waste outlets.

Wash station areas are a challenge with a heavy usage, yet they still need to look and feel relaxing. Using partitions can create a tranquil corner for clients away from the hustle and bustle of the salon and ensure salon furniture is comfortable and practical.

 

Space out Hair Wash Stations

Work stations should have sufficient space between each one - don't be tempted to overcrowd. The first styling unit should be 1m (3') from a window or wall, second and subsequent units should be 1.2m (4') from the centre of the first unit.

Working space out from the unit to the rear of the stylist should be 1.5m (5'). Island styling units are very useful to fill awkward open floor spaces.

 

Get the Salon Ambiance Right

The atmosphere is a vital part of any salon with lighting a priority. Hang bank lights above every station and wall mounted secondary features give it more ambience. Making the most of natural light is a bonus but think of your clients privacy too - no-one wants passers-by seeing you with your head full of foils!

Your reception is the first thing that clients will see as they walk through the door so make it as welcoming as you can. Use colour effectively to separate the salon from the reception or different floor levels.

Wedding Hair Specialists

A good example for a wonderful hair salon design is Trimmershair.net which has a stylish, classy but trendy well thought out appearance. Most of the hairstylists at Trimmers specialise in wedding hair and they will take time for a personal consultation to ensure your hair is exactly the look you want to achieve for the big day.

 

Wedding Hair At Home

If a salon is not your thing and you would rather have your wedding hair consultation, and eventually done, in the comfort of your own home, then, Boe of Botias.com will be happy to oblige.
