How to give your salon a makeover on a budget

Q: How can I give my salon a face-lift on a budget?

With clients looking to treat themselves and get party-ready ahead of the festive season, you need to make sure your salon is up to scratch for winter.

First impressions are everything when it comes to getting clients through the door, so step out onto the street and consider your salon’s overall impact from the perspective of a new customer.

Whether it’s a fresh lick of paint, putting up some new posters in the window or getting festive with some tasteful Christmas lights, it’s easy to give your salon a new lease of life on a budget.

While it’s important to consider the look of your salon, it also makes sense to have equipment that’s easy to clean. Opting for furniture in black or white is both practical and timeless – whatever the vibe of your salon. Monochrome pieces will blend in with your interiors and won’t look out of place if you decide to revamp your salon again in the future.

When selecting furniture also consider the different treatments you offer and the space available to carry them out, and then choose those that can be easily stored away to keep your salon tidy.

Save space by selecting trolleys that are both practical and slim, with just the right amount of storage.
