10 Simple Ways to Refresh Your Salon for Spring

Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing, birds are chirping, and the warmth of sunshine has returned, evoking that familiar feeling of new beginnings and opportunities. Spring is here, and there’s no time like the present to revive, refresh, and renew your hair salon business. As a salon owner, you’re probably asking yourself one, if not all, of these questions when considering a Spring salon revamp: Where do I start? What do I need? How much will it cost? Do I even have time to transform my hair salon?

Before you get overwhelmed, what if we told you we can help transform and refresh your salon with a few simple steps that are easy, affordable (some even cost-free), and can be completed in a short amount of time? You don’t need to hire contractors, bust down walls, and start from scratch to give your hair salon a new look and feel. Small changes can make a big statement, which is why we’ve put together 10 simple ways to refresh and revive your salon for Spring. Set your salon business up for success this Spring by following the easy steps laid out below, and give your space the fresh start it deserves.

1. Wash Away Winter with a DEEP Salon Cleaning

Cleaning may sound like a total no brainer, but let’s be honest, when was the last time you gave your salon a good deep cleaning? In order to truly see your salon, the elements you want to keep, the décor you want to change, the supplies you have in stock, what needs replacing/updating and so on, step one is to clear your mind by deep cleaning your space. Wipe down the baseboards and clean your vents. Mop the salon floors, then mop them again. Sweep away those pesky cobwebs and dust bunnies from the corners of your salon, and if your space doesn’t already have one, purchase an EyeVac Pro Electronic Dustpan to make the laborious daily task of sweeping your salon floors a whole lot easier. Scour your styling stations, salon chairs, shampoo systems, storage cabinets, front desk, and salon retail area from top to bottom. Minerva Beauty is equipped with all the salon cleaning essentials, selling a variety of cleaners and sanitizers to help get your space looking polished and renewed.

2. Re-Arrange & Shake Things Up!

Giving your salon a fresh look doesn’t always mean out with the old and in with the new. Simply moving things around and rearranging your salon furniture can completely transform a space to look new and refreshed. Plus, switching up your floor plan and layout of equipment is practicing feng shui in your salon, which brings new energy and establishes harmony between an individual and their environment. Oh and did we mention… it’s FREE! Win-win all the way around.

Minerva’s 2D Space Planner is the perfect tool to help you lay out, rearrange, and design your spring salon transformation. Our FREE 2D design tool allows you to lay out fully customizable floor plans with Minerva furniture. Simply enter your room's dimensions to get started, add walls, and start placing equipment.

3. Repaint & Refresh

As simple as it seems, giving your walls a fresh coat of paint is an easy and inexpensive way to completely transform the entire look of your salon or spa. Picking out a new wall color can give you a chance to ignite those creative juices and totally change up your space’s aesthetic! Even if you are satisfied with your current wall color, applying a fresh coat of paint is a rewarding process that is sure to brighten up your salon and give it the refresh it deserves.

4. Brighten Up With New Hair Salon Lighting Ideas

Lighting is one of the most important elements in a salon environment. Good, flattering and accurate salon lighting not only allows hair stylists to cut, color, and style their client’s hair efficiently and effectively, but lighting also plays an essential part in creating the vibe of an environment and has the ability to shape and transform a salon’s interior design. Instantly brighten and revamp your salon’s aesthetic by adding both functional and decorative types of lighting throughout your space’s interior. Whether it’s propping open your salon doors on a sunny day or adding lightweight curtains to your windows, take advantage of the natural (and free) light the sun provides wherever possible. The glow of sunlight is an easy and cost-free way to completely revive your salon’s look and feel. Have limited access to natural lighting in your salon? No worries. Minerva Beauty has you covered.

Create an aesthetically pleasing and dynamic ambiance by illuminating your space with the indirect lighting of LED backlit salon mirrors.
Employ vanity lighting in an area of your salon for clients wanting to capture an instagram-worthy picture of their new hairdo with social media-friendly ring lights.
Add strong, color correct task lighting with energy-efficient floor and table lamps.

5. Revive Your Space with Salon Plants

Plants bring life to any space — especially salons. Today, it’s a really popular interior design practice to decorate any space with plants, big and small. That’s because plants, while simple, can really add a lot of color to a tiny room or a wide area and they instantly refresh any space they are placed into. Adding a pop of plant life greenery to your salon’s interior is an affordable, beneficial and aesthetically pleasing way to completely change the look and feel of your space.

6. New Salon Mats, New Salon Energy

Although new mats won’t necessarily transform the entire look of your salon, they will provide your stylists with more comfort which will improve the overall wellness of your salon staff and bring a new wave of fresh and positive energy to your space! Here at Minerva Beauty, we have a wide range of anti-fatigue mats available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors.

7. Organize & Reenergize

It’s no secret that decluttering and organizing a space not only makes it look better but feel better too! Carts and trolleys are an easy and affordable way to give your salon the storage space needed to get organized and stay that way all year long. Plus, providing your hairstylists with the flexibility, storage, and mobility they need will completely enhance and transform the way your salon operates on a daily basis. Take the first steps towards enhancing your space’s functionality and organization by checking out Minerva’s collection of carts, trolleys, and service trays.

9. Keep Salon Furnishings Stain-Free with Protective Chair Covers

With today’s social media and our modern, digitally engaged world, a salon’s look and aesthetic can make or break a business (which is why a Spring salon refresh is needed and necessary). For this reason and many more, it is extremely important to keep your salon furnishings as clean, pristine, and stain-free as possible. Ensure your Spring salon revamp and newly transformed aesthetic remains fresh all year long by protecting your salon chairs against color stain accidents with Minerva’s custom clear vinyl styling chair covers (available for most Minerva Beauty salon chairs).

10. Spruce Up Your Space with New Equipment
