25 Contemporary Salon Concepts

From Austere Barber Shop Interiors to Ethereal Minimalist Salons

— November 23, 2015 — Art & Design
Modern salon concepts tend to take large risks in order to cultivate a genuinely unique environment for customers to feel at home in. From whiteout spaces with little to no furniture to conceptual spaces that give little clue to their function, there are plenty of out-of-this-world examples of boundary pushing interior design concepts centered spaces for haircuts.

In particular, Osaka seems to be a star destination for salons characterized by extreme minimalism and borderline austere interiors. One example from Osaka is the RE-EDIT Hair Salon designed by husband and wife design team SIDES CORE. The astonishingly bare salon interior goes above and beyond traditional minimalism to create a space that is free to be filled up by a customer's imagination.
