We’ve always been told that a good first impression matters — and the same is true for your salon.
A good aesthetic will naturally attract more customers and freelancers, and in turn, an attractive salon is one that will translate well onto social media. If customers like the way it looks, they’ll be proud to post an image of themselves online, which will generate you some free buzz and publicity. Win-win.

Let’s make your salon more Instagrammable with these handy tips below.
Pick a Personality
Choosing a ‘look’ for your salon is all about having a defined sense of personality come through. So once you know what you want, stick to that choice and be consistent.
This means a consistent colour scheme, choice of textures, and furnishings/objects that all cohesively work together.
Mirrors are excellent because they give the impression of additional space. Plus, in a beauty room it’s a welcome addition for all your clients.
A large mirror can often be a bit of a showstopper if used correctly. (See below). Mirrors can be employed quite liberally too, so get reflecting!
Lighting is an easy win. The right lighting in a beauty salon can also be very flattering, which is great when you want your customers feeling they look their best.
This can involve ring lights, bordering mirrors with bulb lights, fairy lights, or anything more elaborate.
Salon ‘Selfie Wall’
Having a specific area, designed for a photo-op can prove a big boon for generating online attention. Some salons have designed their whole image around a beautiful wall of flowers for example. Who doesn’t want to strike a pose somewhere when they’re looking at their most fresh?
Perhaps a a mural wall, or one full of photographs? Maybe something even quirkier. Just make it beautiful and memorable — so get inventive.
Salon Soft Furnishings & Objects
Allow your customers to wait in maximum comfort, with a nice sofa, or hyper-comfy armchairs. Treat the waiting area as an area where you can relax your customers into the full experience.
Any objects that are evocative of relaxation are the ideal choice. Plants for that reason can be an easy way to stylise your surroundings and bring the joys of outdoors, indoors.
