Opening your own salon usually starts with a vision. You dream of having your own business, having full creative rights to a space and a culture that expresses your creativity. You want all of that hard work and planning to look great in the end, just like our friends over at Crystal & Co. salon. Owner Crystal Walker used just one piece as inspiration for a beautiful salon with pops of red, you can do the same by following our tips for accenting your salon with color!
5 Tips for Accenting Your Salon with Color:
Step 1: Find your inspiration.
Crystal & Co. has a solid theme of three colors: black, white, and red. And it all came together because of one piece of wallpaper. Sometimes that’s all you need. Whether it’s your favorite rug in your home, a lampshade that you adore, or something you saw on Instagram that you want to emulate. Finding that one thing you tie it together and inspire a total look is going to be the first step to incorporating color into your salon.
Step 2: Start A Pinterest Board
As Walker told us, “I came across a picture on Pinterest of [the Chelsea] towers, and that was when I was just toying around with the idea of opening a salon, I hadn’t even decided if I was going to do it.” Guess what - those towers are exactly what she got!
By starting your own Pinterest
board, you can hunt and gather all of these things you see around the internet and store them in one place. Now, you’ve got every link you need as well as a database of options to choose from when the time comes to start shopping.
Step 3: Create a Polyvore Account
We are in love with Polyvore
. It really allows you to see everything in one place for your salon - and yes, you can take a picture of that wallpaper and pull it in as well. Drag and drop your favorite designs into one vignette, see how different chairs look with the stations you’re interested.
Step 4: Find Your Accent Pieces
Just about anything can be used as your accent, but nothing is more fun than a chair as your accent. Since you don’t want light reflecting off a bright-colored wall, a chair can be the perfect amount of color. When it came to finding red items for Crystal & Co, Walker said her red chairs had, "that bold pop of color that [she] really needed for this space that made [her] fall in love with them.”
When it comes to color, you can find all sorts of accents from bright green to red to blue! Give our sales team a call today to customize your favorite styles and add an accent color to your salon!
