Industrial Chic

Industrial chic refers to an aesthetic trend that is heavily influenced by old factories and industrial spaces. Exposed bricks, pipes, and metal work help convey the industrial image. For those who rent or own space like this for their salon, this style may be the easiest to design your salon in. 

You will want to stick to brown and metallic colors, and wood colored furnishings for your styling stations and reception area.  Many spaces have room for large reception desks, and you will want to take advantage of that fact. 

Design Tips: 

Painting a dark accent wall or hanging concrete or wood-styled wallpaper. 

Adding statement lights with exposed bulbs or caged pendants.

Minimalism can be described as living with only the things you need. When considering this style for your salon, it would consist of using only a few colors and small touches to make something that is visually appealing.

Choosing stations without major embellishments and have a standard look will aid in creating a minimalist feeling in your salon. Styling stations with a lot of storage space and the ability to hide wires are perfect for a salon seeking to style this way. 

While you may stick to black, white, and beige colors for your color palette, you may want to pick out a uniquely shaped chair to add a little something extra to your salon. Kaemark American-made styling chair not only are stylish, but extremely durable and comfortable.
