13 of the Prettiest Salon Decorating Trends

Whether you are opening a brand new salon or are giving your business a much-needed facelift, you should take note of the best salon decorating trends! Keeping up with popular design trends is important to generate buzz about your salon and make your clients feel relaxed while they are visiting.

We’re making it easy: Here are 13 beautiful decorating trends to remember while thinking about that remodel, or opening your very first salon.

1. Fun With Florals

Florals make your salon feel fresh, light, and feminine. You can use fresh flowers, fake flowers, or floral designs to incorporate flower power throughout your salon! We love the idea of a floral statement wall or fresh flowers in your waiting area. Think of fun and creative ways to incorporate flowers throughout your salon area.

2. Stylish Statement Walls

Not everyone knows what this trend is: A statement wall is a part of your salon that has a beautiful design for clients to take selfies! Clients often want to take a cute picture of the beautiful fresh cut you just gave them, and a statement wall is the perfect place to do it. You can build buzz for your business with a statement wall by:

  • Encouraging clients to post with your salon’s hashtag
  • Including the hashtag on your wall
  • Including your salon’s social media names on your wall
  • Posting client statement wall pictures on your salon’s social media

A statement wall is essentially free marketing for your business. It will make your business boom and your clients feel hip and beautiful.

3. Full-Length Mirrors

Large mirrors will help make your salon feel larger than life! Clients will enjoy being able to stand and view their full look once their cut is finished. We suggest finding mirrors with interesting borders to encourage another perfect selfie moment! The more pictures you can generate Instagrammable content for your business, the better. 

4. Pretty in Pink

One of the hottest trends throughout all of 2019 fashion and design is “millennial pink.” This very light pink color is super in, and it is easy to see why! It is fresh and light, and gives off a peaceful and feminine vibe that your clients will appreciate. Millennial pink is beautifully complimented by almost any color, but we think it looks especially fresh with white and gold! You can incorporate this color in many ways:

  • Pink seating
  • Pink lighting fixtures
  • Pink statement wall
  • Pink drapes
  • Pink sinks
  • And more!

5. Hanging Lights

Hanging lights give your salon a fresh dose of dimension. We love geometric designs or retro looking dome shades over your hanging lights. Avoid chandeliers as your source of light. They are totally tacky right now! You can also use your lighting fixtures as a great way to create a pop of color.

6.Beauty-Themed Art

There’s not much to do while getting your haircut, so give your clients something fun to look at! Look for beauty themed art that fits in with your salon’s color palette and vibe. You can pick out some cute frames or go for a more minimalistic approach depending on how packed your salon already is. 

7. Comfy Couches

The worst part about waiting rooms is often how uncomfortable or tacky the chairs are! Make your clients feel comfy from the moment they walk in the door with some cozy lounge couches as your waiting room seating. You can decorate these couches with cute pillows to drive your color palette.

8. Hangers

Clients always come in with personal items like purses and coats, but never know where to put them during their appointment. Add an area to your salon where guests can hang their personal items. Find a unique beauty themed hanger to attach by each station in your salon. Find unique wall hangers that fit a beauty theme such as:

  • Scissors
  • Eyelash curlers
  • Nail polish bottles
  • Hair dryers

9. Customized Product Area

Every salon has an area for their favorite products to sell to clients before or after an appointment. Make your product area unique to your salon to attract your clients’ attention! Try shelving that matches the other furniture in your salon to make this area cohesive with your design. Use a stylish and unique sign to draw attention to this area and make sure that the products are well lit.

10. White

Using white as a predominant color in your salon’s color palette is one of the hottest trends of 2019. White will make your salon look clean, bright, and modern. However overusing the color can make your business look sterile, so make sure to use other bright and beautiful colors. We love using white floors and white countertops to make a salon look sleek.

11. Neon Signs

Neon signs are all the rage! These signs are bright, bold, and add a little bit of fun to your salon decorations. You can add a neon sign on your statement wall, your product area, or as a general decoration in your salon. Use a neon color that will pop with your salon’s color palette. These can be another great photo opportunity for your clients, so hang them somewhere picture worthy.

12. Pamper Clients in More Ways Than One

Salons are all about the experience of being pampered, so make sure your guests feel welcomed and comfortable with a service station. Offering clients complimentary coffee, water, and snacks at a small service station will set you apart from your competition. Add this station to your waiting area so your guests feel pampered from the moment they walk in the door.

13. Take-Home Menus

Restaurants always have take home menus for their guests, so why not your salon? Designing a small menu of the services you provide and products you sell give your clients something to take home with them to remember your salon. We suggest you include:

  • Photos of your stylists
  • All products, services, and prices
  • Social media information for your salon
  • Your salon’s contact information

You can even include a digital version of your take home menu using GlossGenius. This makes it easy for your clients to access your products and services anywhere they are! Check out our pricing to see how we can help make your salon unforgettable.
