ISG has a long-standing partnership with LIV Aveda, including helping it renovate its salon and spa into a larger, more strategically branded, and more comfortable space is one such example.
After designing Liv Aveda’s original space and a previous expansion, ISG worked with the owners as they considered whether to open a satellite salon or expand their current location.
Working with the owners, ISG determined that the most effective way to proceed was to expand their existing location into an adjacent, vacated retail space. Renovating this additional area required organizing an efficient layout that made sense, utilized space in a smart way, and supported the natural flow of services for clients and staff. Along with additional offices and meeting areas, the expansion created a larger lounge area and three new spa treatment rooms. The manicure and pedicure areas were realigned together for a better use of space and were also updated.
While staying true to the Aveda brand, the renovated salon also ventured in a new direction of color and style. When guests first enter the waiting area and expanded lounge, they are met with soothing colors, furniture, and accessories in soft tones of blue and green. Cream walls are accented with rich and vibrant cranberry accents found in the casework at the reception area and each styling station. Recessed lighting is directed toward each styling chair at every station, providing stylists with ample light while maintaining a calming mood. The open ceiling was enclosed and painted white for a sleek, contemporary look, and wood-grained floor tiles in cream and dark brown match the modern style. With a new look and a larger facility, this thriving salon continues providing superior service and products to improve the well-being of their guests.
