Guy Christian In Cardiff Bay

Tuesday, 12 February 2013 16:23

Recently Guy Christian opened his second salon in Cardiff Bay, one of the Europe’s largest waterfront developments and proudly became one of the UK’s most successful regeneration projects.

Beauty Planet Salon Designs along with sister company Olymp together transformed the 1,400 square foot shell into a unique salon that vibrates with a wonderful contrast of spacious warehouse with raw features with bespoke features, coupled with opulent elegance and comfort to the highest standard.

The project took just eight weeks to complete, working on a budge of £87,000, incorporated elements of design from Guy’s first salon in City Road, Cardiff but integrated with a more streamlined look.

Guy Christian comments: “Client comfort and functionality came first, but the design based on the contrast of the raw, edgy warehouse with the softer touches was followed throughout. The best thing I did was to take on a good designer. Beauty Planet Salon Designs paid meticulous attention to detail and it resulted in the salon I wanted.

There are total of 14 custom made styling stations along with full sized lightboxes providing atmospheric lighting and each hold a full length mirror in Rococo style frames. Chandeliers and a custom made, deep red, velvet sofa in the waiting area add luxurious touches. The brickwork effect wall and exposes concrete ceiling provide a rustic contrast. High end salon furniture from Olymp includes Lavasit Backwashes and Lounge chairs.

Matthew Lutus (Managing director) said: “ This was a great project to work on with Guy. We received an empty shell and designed the salon based on the brief and area we had available. We managed to squeeze 14 styling stations and 4 backwash chairs, yet we still retained the unique and spacious look and energy that Christian wanted.
