Featured Salon: Hair & There

Our September Featured Salon has a unique twist. Prepare to be amazed. We’re about to show you a complete before and after transformation of Hair & There.

How many times has a client said to you, “Can’t you just come to my house?” Now a mobile hair salon and Standish client has made this wish a reality for their Houston clients, offering everything that can be found in a full service salon with the flexibility of not being limited a specific area of one of the United State’s largest cities. Hair and There Mobile Salon became the first of its kind with its launch last September, but not without a tremendous amount of work that was put into the major facelift.

Where did this unconventional salon idea begin? Owner Katy McLaughlin purchased the vintage Airstream on Craigslist for $2,800 and took four months to renovate it into a creative salon space. McLaughlin told Houston News Channel KPRC 2 that the original nostalgia and retro feel of the travel trailer inspired the look and feel of her new salon.

From Disaster to Perfectly Designed

McLaughlin thought through each detail of the update to insure she made use of every inch of available space in order to service a wide range of clients. She even installed a wheelchair ramp to be more easily accessible to clients in local Nursing Homes and Assisted Living communities.

The salon owner also choose furniture that would save space but also fit with the concept that she was going for. The Standish Salon Goods Duke styling chair and shampoo shuttle are ideal when trying to optimize a small amount of space. The streamlined design and simple structure fit well with the smooth yet compact design of the vintage Airstream and the choice of bright white added to vintage flare of the retro interior.
