Ways To Give Your Salon a Makeover

Your business is your lifeblood, so it should reflect your personality and work ethic. If the furniture or equipment in your beauty salon has seen better days, it might be time for an interior design facelift. Our ways to give your salon a makeover will not only improve how much business your salon attracts, but they will also make you feel more energized while you’re at work.

New Wall Décor

Clients will try to find things to stare at whether they’re sitting in a styling chair or the waiting room, so give them something nice to look at! Find a local artist whose craft you’d like to support and purchase one of their works. Not only will your clients enjoy seeing local talent in your business, but you are also supporting their art. If it’s a big hit, display more local artists proudly or rotate art around. If art doesn’t fit your salon’s aesthetic, frame photos of unique haircuts and makeovers to inspire your customers with an idea of what they may want. Use your salon’s walls as a portfolio of the work you’re proudest of.

You can also try repurposing old tools or antiques to fit into your salon’s theme. Even if it doesn’t belong on the wall, it can look stylish in a crafty, rustic artistic design.

Replace or Refurbish Your Furniture

Tarnished furniture that needs some extra love may drive your customers away if left as-is. It may be cost-effective to reupholster torn reception furniture or the leather on your favorite styling chair, but when a piece of furniture is too far gone, it’s time to replace it. Broken furniture—both in the reception area and in the salon—is a danger to you and your patrons. If you’ve been running a successful small business on hand-me-down or reused furniture, buying new salon furniture can be empowering. Furnish one area at a time to avoid breaking your budget.

This is also the perfect time to try a new theme for your beauty salon if you’ve wanted to. A breath of fresh air is incredibly energizing when it comes to business.

Purchase a New Type of Equipment

Staying on top of new salon technology is of the utmost importance to your business. If new equipment is available for purchase and will be immensely useful for your beauty salon, it might be a good idea to stretch your budget for it. Being able to boast about your business’s attention to new technology can draw in new customers or keep regular customers coming in. It will also keep you on top of any new trends that appear.

Improve Your Lighting

No one likes dingy lighting in a beauty salon. If you struggle with low or unflattering lighting in the salon, one of the easiest ways to give your salon a makeover is to simply fix the terrible lighting situation. New lights will brighten up the rest of your business and may fix any other design flaws you felt were present.
