The most renowned and widespread chain of hair salons in our country and neighboring regions, Simple, has gained a younger family member. Simple Barber offers barber services, which are often lacking in shopping centers. The target locations are shopping hubs where customers can take a break during their shopping trip to groom themselves. The service must be quick and professional, hence the salons are designed to make the most of the space, and the right furniture organization allows hairdressers to work as efficiently as possible.
The salon renovation must be quick, simple, and economical. This is achieved with standardized furniture and the use of simple materials for installation and maintenance.
The facade is made from wooden lamellar formwork, painted with a matte black finish. Windows carved into the facade display sale products, and the entrance, centrally positioned, invites customers in. Usually, the facade is solid to limit views from the outside, creating an intimate atmosphere inside the salon. The walls are smoothed with facade adhesive and coarsely plastered. Linear lighting is retrofitted onto the existing ceiling. All furniture is prefabricated and fixed to the wall.
The salon can be set up in a few days, and it's easy to implement and maintain.
