Most likely, your salon is the place where you spend most of your time outside your home. The right salon decorations and accessories will help you turn this place into your second home. Our Danish secret to happy living is ‘Hygge’ – the state of comfort, cosiness and well-being.
We believe that by using this approach to decorate your salon space, you will naturally achieve a warm, inviting atmosphere for you and your clients. This way of living is so ingrained in how we do things at NATULIQUE that we even named one of our products after it.
Most importantly, be careful not to clutter the space when decorating! Do it tastefully, and your clients will love spending time in your salon as much as you do.
Here are a few tips for Hygge decorating:
Plants can help you get a fresh and natural, yet sophisticated look. It goes great with the organic and natural approach that you present with NATULIQUE. Also, flora is a great way to keep your salon fresh and counteract any hairdressing related air pollution.
Consider having 1 or 2 big plants like our favourite fiddle leaf fig, a few small pots and fresh bouquets in your reception area. Choosing seasonal flowers for your coffee table will add variety and keep your salon’s feel up to date with the current trends.
Another creative way to use plants is by hanging them from the ceiling. It will give you more floor space and add to your hair salon wall decor as well!
Waiting Time Experience
It is always great for your clients when they have something to do while waiting for their appointment. As an eco-friendly hair salon, you can create an enjoyable waiting experience that is both comfy and helps better environment.
For example, you can get reusable mugs made of ceramic or glass. Should your customers need straws, offer reusable stainless steel ones or eco-friendlier versions made from paper or bamboo. They are affordable, easy to find, and will match your salon personality.
You can pair that with organic tea or coffee, maybe even some homemade biscuits and a nice warm blanket. This will make your salon feel especially homey and turn appointments at the salon to cozy little getaways.
You want to make your salon more instagrammable? Think about creating a selfie corner! A very aesthetically pleasing and inviting spot for your clients to take before and after pictures of your work and post them on social media.
This encourages your clients to act as ambassadors to your salon! If you have space for it, put some funky piece of furniture in one corner to create a fun and beautiful spot that begs for selfies to be taken and shared on Instagram! Or, choose a small wall in your salon and add a creative and fun wallpaper with your accent colour.
Your clients can take their selfies after getting their hair done while you will have a corner for your before and after pictures.
A little tip: if possible, get your salon’s name or logo represented in the selfie corner for best brand representation! Want to read more on how to perfect the before and after pictures? Check out our hairdresser’s Instagram Guide!
