DESCRIPTION: As you enter the majestic doorway at the latest salon by Haim Knister, you are greeted by a combination of French and Mediterranean style. The color palette follows a warm, tropical theme, using a soft combination of citrus green and two tones of sand for the walls, dark wood shelving and travertine flooring. The reception area features a curved reception desk, with clean lines by adding a circular ceiling above, painted green. The retail area blends well with the entry, adorned with unique shelving and low level lighting to display a complete line of hair products. The waiting area offers a combination of a sofa and custom vinyl chairs. Towards the back of the salon, work stations are clean and sleek. To complete the look, contemporary oil paintings grace the walls.
"Retail is very important to profitability. As a result, we built the retail center in front and right next to the desk so guests are sure to see it. We designed the color area next to the shampoo area so the guest can see what's happening and create the desire to upgrade to a color or deep conditioning treatment. The color green is used throughout the salon to provide an ambiance of relation and comfort ability."- Haim Knister
