In a recent update to our social media sites, we posted this statement:
“Next floor of the salon is coming along nicely! Not your average salon style. But our style. And we are not average.”
After getting an amazing response from this message, I have felt the need to explain it.
From the day Lee and I set out on this journey, we always wanted to do things “our way”. From the hair we dress, to the style of our salon. We do not research into what every other salon is doing with their hairdressing. Nor do we look at the style and culture of their salons. The only time we have discussed the way other salons operate, has been in reflection. Looking at salons that we have been associated with in the past and seeing what they have done badly, and ensuring we do not replicate this.
When considering our current salon interior, and also the new upper floor of the salon, we spent time looking at interior design magazines and going to areas of London/New york that we loved the style and character of. We did not once look at hairdressing magazines or what any other salon is doing in the area. This is why you will not see any other salon like ours. We have always strived to create environments that we want to spend time in, and more importantly, clients do.
Unfortunately, other salons feel the need to copy our style. With some trying to imitate our unique lighting, and others our custom made wall. But, maybe this is not such a bad thing. If it means that other salons are trying to raise their standards to meet ours, this must mean we are helping to raise our industries standards? Right? Then this is not a bad thing. With our style and taste always evolving, we will ensure that we are always one step ahead with our style and innovations in design and hairdressing.
