Becky Jeanes of Dick Clark Architecture has sent us a hair salon project she recently completed in Austin, Texas. Propaganda Hair Group rethinks salon in terms of functionality and aesthetic. To compliment his brand, the client envisioned a loft-like environment with an open plan, minimal furnishings, and wood and concrete textures. Offering a comfortable and open atmosphere, a great attention is given to design the details in order to provide a complete function of a hair salon and eliminate the supplemental furnishing. Finished along the outer walls, walnut cabinets become one continuous design element. From the front area until end section of the hair salon, including reception, retail display, makeup artist, stylist stations, color technicians, dressing rooms and smock closet are seems to be integrated into the language of the cabinets that transform through the space. A dropped wood ceiling and sheer curtains are implied in the shampoo area, providing a private environment from the activity of other section. Another attractive spot in this hair salon is the auxiliary space – break room, restrooms and office – that are designed with a tall white volumes that is utilized for photographic display. Open ceiling and exposed building systems gives a unique look to the salon design. Meanwhile a textured spine connects the two entrances and welcomes you with a dramatic open plan of hair salon.
