To “create a scalable new brand in luxury beauty salons that would look at home in any major international city” was a fabulous brief and challenge for our team for this young entrepreneurial client. The chosen location for this initial launch boutique was a disused café surrounded by Manchester’s finest hangout icons in the coveted Spring Gardens. To set this apart we wanted this to be the ultimate luxury beauty experience conceptualised as a top-to-toe journey through the salon which could entail a one-after-another treatments – if so desired. This means you can leave the salon fully complete and pampered looking and feeling fabulous down to finishing touches such as your perfume of choice. There was an initial challenge of space planning to convert the space to a commercial unit accommodating 4 key elements: spray tanning, hair & makeup, manicure and pedicure sections as well as spa treatment zones.
