1. Vibrant Hair Salon Design by YHS Design

The first hair salon design in the list was designed by YHS Design – an award-winning design agency hair salon architect based out of Taipei.

I just love this nature inspired hair salon design.

This is what YHS said about the project.

“Within the bustling streetscape, there is a place that offers garden rituals where you can temporarily escape from the outside world.

Capturing the essence of the botanical image, sky garden was created throughout the aisle, immediately welcomes the guests to bask under, moving aside from the crowd, welcoming them from the entryway.

Peeking further into the space, the narrowed layout extends upwards with detailed golden touch-ups. Botanic metaphors are still vibrantly expressed throughout the room, replacing the bustling noise coming from the streets, and here becomes a secret garden.

3. Pink Confession Hairdressing & Nail Salon Decor by Tulimond

The next design is a beauty salon visualization created by Tulimond for salon “Pink Confessions, Nail & Hair Studio” based in Qatar. Its 68 sqm is a true celebration of femininity.

This is what Tulimond says about the design:

“A chic-blush interior concept combining nail art, hair glamour, and oh-so-good coffee; all in one space. The end result screams elegant-feminine power!

It subtly represents every woman’s dream of a tranquility haven, where your most delicate beauty bits get treated along with having your favorite drink.

The high-end interior design is inspired by the abstraction of sleek geometrical shapes with the mixture of metallic elements, and blush-pinkie tones dominating the interior as the soul of the space.”

4. Island Hair Salon Design by YHS Design

Here is another beautiful and nature inspired salon decoration and design project from YHS Design.

“Birds sing, water flows, wood and plants release the fragrance of nature. A place, filled with greenery and vitality, differentiates itself from the rest of hair salons and reinterpret the spatial concept.”

YHS Design

This is how they explain the project:

“The delicate atmosphere gradually infects the mood, the tangible and intangible nature and the change of light and shadow set off a pleasant and beautiful interest in the space. This urban oasis is expected to bring people different sensory experiences and visual enjoyment. One can embrace the natural appearance in the bustling city and feel the collision of natural elements in the space. Deconstruct the existing natural lines of tree trunks and combine them with shade-tolerant plants then reorganize them in the space recede all the complexity and eventually reach a balance between nature and design.”

8. Ethereal Hair Salon Decor by YHS Design

Ethereal is another beautiful hair salon design project from YHS Design Group. This is, in my opinion, the most luxurious salon design in this list.

“The use of rhyme in textures, the refreshing smell of woods and the flowing art space breaks the imaginable space of the past and abandons the existing impression of how a commercial space should be.”

YHS Design Group

Here’s how YHS Design describe the project:

“One can sense the detailing of crafts, smell the breath of nature and feel the vibes of curves and lines and the vibrancy of ink gradation within the space. Everything seems calm but it is like flowing water to the eyes. It is an artistic feast of vision, scent and touch that allows people to have a temporary getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. This is a space where people can calmly taste and drink in the rare ambient encounter.”

9. Blu Creativity Hairdressing Salon Design by Facet Studio

This gorgeous salon design was created by Facet Studio in Sydney, Australia.

They were challenged with the task to turn the 180m2 area into a salon that when people enter they step out of the city. To achieve this, they focused on natural phenomena to enhanced the sense of relaxation and comfort. In particular, boundary and nature.

Sense of Boundary: We layered porous and translucent boundaries to divide the functions, rather than solid walls. When one is in one space, spaces adjacent can always be felt; the sense of space is never limited to the physical space. This, in turn, contributes to a feeling of expansiveness and blurs the abruptness of hard boundaries.

Facet Studio

Sense of Nature: By installing ceiling fans to generate ‘wind’ and dividing spaces with translucent curtains and a porous ‘jungle gym’, we allowed air movement to freely circulate within the space. Furthermore, the curtains capture the air movement and make this invisible natural phenomenon visible in the internal space, enhancing the sense of nature that brings people away from artificiality associations with “the city”.

12. Studio Benicky Salon Design & Decor by Daniel Malik

Studio Benicky was designed by Daniel Malik in 2018 for a new hair salon on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

“The salon’s interior design aims to provide an inviting and comfortable environment for women and it functions to best support the Studio’s hairdressing services, which include cuts, hair colouring & blowdries. I also developed the Studio Benicky Branding, signage, promotional material and website. Being involved in all areas of design regarding the business allowed for Studio Benicky to achieve a clear and coherent identity.”

I hope you’re as inspired as I am after seeing these nice hair salon designs.

The hair salon designers and architects listed here are truly brilliant at what they do and I’m very grateful that they allow me to share their work here.

If you’re planning to remodel your salon, I can only recommend that you reach out to one of them to see how they can help.

Your hair salon decor plays a central part in building your salon brand and effectively marketing your salon. The design theme should fit your salon’s website, what you post on social media, and all other communication about your salon.

As a next step, I recommend you check out my list of hair salon equipment that could fit your salon design as well as my hair salon lighting ideas. If you’re just starting your salon you should, however, start by going through my opening a salon checklist here.
