Whether you’re thinking of giving your salon a fresh coat of paint or want to invest in some new furniture for a whole new look, the beginning of a new year is always a good time to breathe new life into the interior of your salon. 

Here are five simple steps to give your salon a makeover for spring, whatever your budget.

1. A paint job is always a good idea…

It may be that you are very accustomed to painting your clients’ nails or painting colour on their hair but have neglected the salon walls for a little while.

We recommend giving your hair or beauty salon a paint job every few years or so, as the walls are prone to building up products such as hair spray and can often be covered in hair dye stains and splatters or cracks from age.

A fresh lick of paint will make a noticeable difference in the brightness and overall look of cleanliness within your salon, and maintenance is something we cannot recommend enough.

2. Update your furniture…

Furniture can be the perfect way to update your salon’s overall look. While this is an investment, the presence of new pieces will not only change your salon’s aesthetic but also ensure that your salon cares about attention to detail, as your furniture will not look tired and overused.

3. Add an accent wall…

A really easy and effective way to give your salon a refresh is to add a focal point of interest. You could keep it neutral by adding artwork or painting it a bright block colour, or alternatively, you could create a marketing area merchandising stock or promotional prints from the brands you use and work with.

4. Rethink your storage solutions…

Space saving can make your salon look and feel more spacious, so take advantage of clever storage solutions such as drawers and fixed units. Always ensure that tools are put away after use, as well as straightening up chairs and keeping work areas free of clutter.

We also recommend setting up ‘zones’ so that each treatment area of your salon has a clear, designated space and looks less busy and untidy. This is a simple shake-up that costs nothing and can give your salon a facelift in seconds.

5. Re-design your window displays…

Even if you don’t want to spend money on updating the look of your salon by changing up your window display, your salon business will immediately look fresher from the outside.

This will help existing clients form a new opinion of your salon and potentially attract new clients.

You can quickly redesign your window space by changing promotional items, painting your front door, or changing where you merchandise your retail products.


Investing in the appearance of your salon business is a worthy step when it comes to enhancing your clients’ experience.

Your spring re-fresh will also give a good impression to new customers, which is likely to be a part of the reason why they return.

And in the age of places and spaces being ‘Instagramable,’ don’t miss this opportunity to get your salon on someone’s grid—you never know how it might attract new clients!
