JANUARY 2019 | | 29 TOP: COURTESY OF RAMOS CARREON SALON; COURTESY OF THE PRIVATE ROOM into a structurally sound piece without a full build," explains Takara Belmont interior designer Yaneyra Hilario. The same theory goes for mirrors and chairs. "This can maintain your salon's soul integrity while saving money for other new design elements," says Los Angeles-based Ramos Carreon Salon co- proprietor Philip Carreon. For an instant affordable refresh, switch your paint colors. To get the most bang for your buck, stick to neutral hues with splashes of bold colors. "Neutrals hold up the longest," advises Carreon. "Trendy [colors] move fast so your salon can look outdated in no time." THE STATIONS Instead of adding, hide. "Most stylists are messy; if there's too much going on stations can look junky," says Carreon. Beverly Hills, California-based The Private Room owner Tina Dizon likes to use simple clear or white storage bins to provide easy access while presenting a tidy front. "They're neat, clean and organized," she says. THE EXTRAS Save greenbacks by making an eye-catching plant or piece of artwork your focal point. "They're easy to replace, providing for instant change," says Dizon. There's no need to splurge on fancy, expensive art. Instead, use pictures of your team's work or partner with a local artist. "Most artists are happy to loan art in the hopes that guests might purchase it," says Carreon. If you prefer to hang multiple pieces, choose a key wall or two for your gallery. "It's a clever way to inject bright, bold colors without putting them everywhere," says Janssen. THE UNIFORMS Unify your interior by asking staff to wear colors that vibe with your decor or your logo's palette. "It will keep your space on brand with your business and contrasting colors pull the eye," says Hilario. As Ramos Carreon Salon in Los Angeles proves, something as simple as rearranging retail and adding plants can instantly revive decor. A classic white palette at The Private Room in Beverly Hills, California, looks clean and timeless. Smart Schooling The secret to saving money on a redesign: "Never let the salon develop a broken, outdated appearance in the fi rst place," says Eric Lewine. Limit wear and tear by educating your staff on how to maintain the furnishings and stress the importance of treating the salon as if it's their own home. "This should be part of the salon culture from day one of joining the team," he notes.
