Concrete and microcement in a hair salon – 10 inspiring ideas
Concrete and microcement will work well not only in homes and apartments, but also in commercial premises. They will be ideal in a hair salon, beauty salon or barbershop. These materials, in addition to the original and modern look, are also very durable, waterproof, stain resistant, easy to keep clean and practically do not require maintenance or refreshing every few years, as happens even for paints that turn yellow, gray, dirty and peel off.
Concrete has many faces and can be used in interiors with various styles. Just have a look at below inspirations of concrete and microcement in a hair salon we prepared for you!
In industrial style
The most obvious association with concrete is the industrial style.
The first proposal of an industrial style hair salon is a raw space in shades of gray and black. Microcement on the walls, microcement on the floor covered with glossy varnish or polished concrete (both technologies give a similar effect), minimum furniture and good lighting – that’s all.
In this hair salon there is also a microcement floor finished with semi-gloss sealer and classic industrial style interior elements such as the exposed brick wall with cavities filled with raw concrete mortar.
In this hairdressing salon, designers propose to combine concrete slabs with a floor covered with microtopping, tables with pallets and large openwork lamps.
In a modern style
Elegant and modern hair salon with beautiful wooden parquet, exposed white painted brick and a microcement ceiling. Crystal lamps give it a pinch of glamour.
Mook Salon in the Japanese city of Osaka was designed by Okuwada Architects Office. It mainly uses two materials – wood and microcement. It is used on the floor and part of the walls. The whole interior has an eco-rustic character. [source]
Another inspiration also comes from Asia – it’s Msuubu hair boutique in Singapore. A reliable combination of wood and concrete has also been proven here. We have a concrete floor, walls pretending to be raw concrete and bare ceiling beams with visible installations. All combined with equipment with almost raw wood and industrial lighting. [source]
New York style
Microcement straight from New York …
Ion Studio is one of the best hairdressers in New York. No wonder that the interior is also tasteful and full of style. We have here all the classic elements of the New York style: subdued bright colors, marble, gold and nickel elements, a little wood and … a microcement wall, which is the perfect backdrop for the decorative shelves behind the reception.
… and from Los Angeles
In the BaseColorBar beauty salon from Los Angeles we can find similar elements – the gray, the white, glass tables with golden frames and a delightful floor made of polished concrete. The best New York style is the noble finish, elegant materials and a timeless design that will never get boring.
In a real man style
Barber shop Chaps & Co. in Dubai is a proposition for real men. The interior is inspired by British gentlemen’s clubs. It is dominated by heavy leather couches, dark walls, armchairs like a barber salon from the early 20th century. The modern character of the whole is added by a polished concrete floor.
Hair salon like an art gallery
There is a place in Barcelona, where the art gallery merged with the hairdressing salon. This place is Noguera Hair & Art Salon designed by architects from Cm2 Dissenty. The owner is a hairdresser and art-painter in one person, a lover of art and sculpture who wanted to combine both of his passions in this salon. In the salon, mirrors framed in thick frames hang like paintings in a gallery. Concrete and black varnish, which are covered with some furniture, combined with wood and ceramic tiles.
