This pristine Osaka hair salon is a masterful execution of understated elegance that is sure to provide a wholly unique haircut experience. The epic recently completely salon is only 57-square-meters and is essentially dripping in bright, white light.

Designed by Sohei Arao of Osaka-based SIDES CORE studio, the space goes above and beyond minimalism with an entirely bare interior, characterized only by three tall mirrors suspended from the ceiling each with a different stylized chair in front. The space features bare white walls, a grey concrete floor and sweeping windows that are shrouded with white semi-translucent curtains that make the most of the supply of natural light at its disposal.

This gorgeous salon is like a blank canvas waiting where creativity is free to run wild.
