Top London hairstylist Ricky developed the unique Salon64 concept whilst walking around London and was bored of seeing all hair salons looking the same. Seeing a gap in the market, he went about asking himself: what a salon is and what a salon does?? The final push Ricky needed to creating Salon64 came when managing a salon within a five star hotel and regularly been asked by clients: Do you have a phone charger and can I stay afterwards to do my make-up and get myself ready for a night out with my friends?? Being in five star hotel he would always say yes, but deep down he thought; no you can’t, thats my chair, I’ve got clients waiting, and now I’ve got to move someone around to accommodate this.
In 2017 Ricky took the leap to opening Salon64 in London’s Soho. He took the salons inspiration from the original French salon and brought into the modern age, by changing the hair & beauty experience for the future. A social hub where patrons can meet, retreat, work and enjoy a host of styling and pampering services, we’re about to learn about this revolutionary concept and the design that inspires the art of conversation through it’s transformative spaces such as The Fire Pits, The Style Bar and The Bar.
As salon owners we often play it safe and follow the same old traditional salon business model and concept. But if you’re becoming tired of this model and in need of some seriously inspirational out-of-the-box thinking to the salon of the future, then this episode with Ricky is required listening for you. So common, tune-in, listen and enjoy!
