You want your salon to look chic not shabby, so it’s important that you strive to create a cohesive look with the salon workstations and furniture. Unless the area you live in is known for eccentricities and funky styles, it’s likely best to keep your salon classy. This reassures clients that when they enter your salon they will leave with a new look that’s both elegant and stylish.
Salon workstations stand out to clients because they take up a lot of space in a salon. It’s also the one item in the salon that clients stare at the most while getting a haircut. Making sure that all workstations complement each other and match the rest of your salon’s interior will help create a cohesive look that demonstrates your style and reassures clients.
Single or Double Workstations
One decision you need to make is whether you want single or double workstations. With double workstations you have a mirror and shelf on each side. This allows two stylists to work from the same station, but makes it impractical to place stations against a wall. Investing in double sided workstations allows you to use space against the wall for dryers, shampoo stations, manicure and pedicure stations, and retail space. If you’re initial design idea is to have all of your stations backed up to the walls, then you’ll want to invest in single sided stations.
Once you’ve decided on the style of station, it’s time to pick the colour. Stations come in a variety of colours, so you can choose to have all the same colour or pick two complementary colours. If your salon is two-toned throughout, picking complementary colours will create a cohesive look without looking monochromatic.
After choosing stations, make sure you choose comfortable salon chairs that look good with the stations. You don’t need the chairs to be the same colour as the stations. In fact, dark brown stations look great with black chairs and vice versa.
Choosing Mobile Accessories
Since hairdressers keep trolleys next to their workstations when applying colour and working on hair, it’s important that the hairdressing trolleys complement the workstations. You don’t want black plastic trolleys if your workstations are made from wood and stained chestnut brown. Invest in trolleys that resemble the workstations so that when placed next to the station they won’t clash. By choosing complementary pieces for your salon, it will look elegant and make clients feel relaxed.
