Hair Salon Design:  Interior space layout

When planning a hairdressing salon shop, the interior space layout is the foundation, and certain regulations and standards (such as ADA standards in the United States) need to be met, especially the indoor installation of various wiring equipment (hydraulic and electrical). In fact, the right plan is to ensure the comfort and health of customers and can be beneficial to the work activities of service providers.


A hair salon can be divided into three main areas:

  • Entrance-reception/cashier/waiting area
  • Workspace-shampoo/haircut styling
  • Services-toilet/salon storage

* Entrance

The entrance should be arranged in the accommodation the reception area, cash counter and the waiting room. The in-store cashier area should also be designed and organized for displaying and selling hair care-related products and equipped with appropriate shelves. This is usually accomplished by placing a shelf dedicated to displaying products behind the cashier. In addition, the waiting room is a very important space, which shapes the image of the whole hair salon.

reception deskGenerally speaking, a hair salon has a limited area, and usually, the reception desk and cashier will be combined. For example, this one in the picture, although its size is relatively small, has a double-layer countertop, which allows you to place your computer on the inside and can also have the cash register function. The higher part in front can receive customers, and when customers apply for membership, they can sign and fill out forms without bending over.

* Workspace

The work area is the most important part of the whole shop operation, which can be simply divided into shampoo and haircut functional areas, which are inseparable.

Hair Wash

When you design this area, you can arrange a separate room, or design a fixed area as a hair washing area. To help customers wash their hair, water is essential to contact. You need to lay out the pipes of water pipes well, or you can use various washing shop equipment to enhance the customer's experience, and let customers sit and lie down to enjoy good haircut service.

Cut/Hair Styling Station

This area is at the heart of the salon, where the hairdresser shows off his technique and the client checks the results in a mirror. This is why special attention should be paid to the lighting installation system when designing this area. Direct lighting should be avoided, and you should choose diffuse lighting, which will not produce unpleasant shadows. And this area needs to provide at least 3/4 styling chairs and as many mirrors and hairdressing furniture as possible so that you can receive as many customers as possible at the same time.
