The Gibson Hair and Makeup Salon located in Charleston, South Carolina offers beauty enthusiasts a utilitarian and rustic location to visit for all their cosmetic needs. The interior of the space is open concept complete with exposed brick, hanging wire lighting and uncovered vent systems to create an unrefined space that is still sophisticated.
The salon is unconventional layout for a beauty parlour that often surrounds creating an air of opulence, luxe and femininity to reflect the products and services sold. The Gibson Hair and Makeup Salon contrastingly features plywood floors, an open-concept layout, exposed light fixtures and duct work that embraces the area and the building's original history.
The intentionally unrefined design of the space creates a natural aesthetic that contrasts the concept of beautification.
