'OD Blow Dry Bar,' a hair and beauty salon in Yerevan, Armenia, takes advantage of the city's soviet era architecture to create a unique and fashionable space. Most notable are the salon's mirrors, which feature oblong, abstract shapes that one wouldn't expect to see in a hair salon.

The mirrors in OD Blow Dry Bar are each unique from one another. One is shaped like an oval, another like a semicircle, and still another like a slanted rhombus. One of the mirrors even extends at a slight perpendicular angle from the wall. Such a design quirk is a clever way to create an interesting aesthetic without sacrificing the efficacy and functionality of the salon booths for the hairdressers themselves.

The location also features high ceilings with exposed wooden crossbeams, an original feature of the building that the designers chose to leave in place.
