Quick turnaround the order of the day for Sydney hair salon
The Platinum Blow Dry Bar in Sydney’s CBD has just received a striking new makeover courtesy of DIA member Vanessa Cullen.
The owners of the hair salon approached Vanessa to come up with a mix of practicality and luxury to attract busy customers in need of a quick pampering or ‘pick me up’.
‘The clients came to us with a very clear direction which was easy to achieve,’ said Vanessa.
‘Whilst their budget was tight, they had realistic expectations and were really good to work with.’
Vanessa’s design used flush finishes throughout, a monochromatic colour scheme, fine detailing, graphic walls and massive white chesterfield couches.
Storage areas were completely hidden behind a rounded, wallpapered wall with hidden doors, and the front retail area made best use of an existing column through the installation of cladding and cantilevered glass shelving.
The uncluttered space gives plenty of room for the hair stylists to work in a glamorous and functional setting, and the overall theme exudes a ‘clean, funky mood’.
‘Vanessa and her team have brought to life the hair salon of our dreams,’ enthused the owner.
‘We look forward to working with her again.’
