Guy and Natalie, the owners of Cut Loose Hair Design, are a father-daughter duo that you will NEVER forget! Both of their personalities are very outgoing, over the top, and genuinely fun–perfect for a salon! It’s been a dream of theirs to work together in their own space, and after a few years of planning, saving, and gaining top-industry experience they were ready to take the leap into full-time studio owners.
Cut Loose Hair Design needed our help streamlining two very opinionated personalities into one cohesive aesthetic. The perfect blend of what makes Green Couch Design so unique, we were able to bring both our graphic design and architectural backgrounds to the table–offering a truly complete branding and interior design package. From finalizing the salon name, establishing a lasting brand with focus and drive, to offering interior design, floor plan, and lighting suggestions we were truly able to provide a big picture design vision for Cut Loose Hair Design.
A father-daughter run business Cut Loose Hair Design has the perfect blend of a masculine perspective on design, experienced education, and young innovative idea’s for men, women, and children alike. Their ongoing knowledge of hair design keeps them in style and on trend. At Cut Loose Hair Design they are not afraid to bring their own personal creativity and talents to the latest coloring, cutting, styling, perms, waxes, and updos for a final look customers love.
It was important to keep the brand design smart, but fun, clean, but friendly, classy, and display an overall positive vibe. The bright colors speak to Natalie’s love of teal and rustic decor, while the simple design and san serif font target Guy’s straight line business approach and love of industrial materials. At Cut Loose Hair Design family is centric to their entire business culture. The two sheers in the mark celebrate the coming together of the father-daughter salon duo, without being over the top or cheesy. The additional marks within the brand display a raw, almost cattle brand-like styling, without feeling too country.
Vintage family heirloom barrel furniture added a unique look and feel to the shop design. Looking to attract young and fun individuals and families it was important that the salon felt trendy, but comfortable. Unlike cheap chop-shops Cut Loose Hair Design builds personal relationships with their clients and it was important to create that casual atmosphere in the overall layout of the shop.
To maximize profit Cut Loose Hair Design needed to fit as many booth spaces as possible within their layout while still providing ease of movement and function. By extending the typical waiting area throughout the ends and central location of the studio we were able to fit more booths into the shop and create comfy seating “nooks” out of the odd leftover spaces. By spreading the waiting area throughout the midsection of the shop and adding a coffee bar toward the back right clients can move freely and truly make themselves at home.
The relaxed floor plan encourages genuine customer interaction with all stylists and customers, while the individual booth spaces provide room for one-on-one professional care and attention.
Salon Floor Plan & Booth Layout Options:
Guy and Natalie wanted a professional, yet family-friendly atmosphere that people would want to come back to again and again. By placing seating throughout the entire shop the public space is clearly defined while encouraging clients to move around the salon. The comfy seating and handmade family-style dining room table make the space feel even more homey. Typically clients can find the table covered with hair and fashion magazines to coloring books. Cut Loose Hair Design is truly a trendy, yet kid-friendly place.
Salon Lighting Options:
Originally the space was very bare and boring. Guy and Natalie wanted creative suggestions to add materials and interest throughout the entire salon. The upcycled pallet wall, wine rack towel holders, old doors where the mirrors are attached, are all elements that tie to the Cut Loose Hair Design raw, chic, and industrial aesthetic. With the help of their entire family the owners were not afraid of getting their hands dirty. They took each of our interior design suggestions to heart and truly made the shop their own.
Cut Loose Hair Design has been one of our favorite projects thus far because we were able to showcase all of what makes Green Couch Design so unique. We love family, we love homey spaces, and we love great design. Creating a space and a branding platform where all three of those could flourish in has been a dream come true.
