If Walls Could Talk

In the age of Instagram, having the right backdrop for a client selfie or your next viral post is key. These salons created picture-perfect focal points that speak louder than words.

Black Out

The stars at night are big and bright underneath the black ceilings in these salons. By adding the darkness to the often-overlooked area of the salons, a more intimate environment is created.

 Dream Theme

The most cohesive of salons are tied together by a common theme. Whether that be something as simple as a color scheme or as bold as these two salons, the element of consistency will bring your clients along for a visual journey during their services.

Color Popped

Create a burst of energy in your reception area with some extra color.\
