The Inspire Hair & Beauty Salons are a not only a state-of-the-art training centre for Epping Forest College’s students, but also a working salon where they can use the skills learned on their course on paying members of the public.
Opened in June 2013 by world renowned makeup artist Gary Cockerill, the Inspire Hair & Beauty Salons are constructed in an area over 3500ft2, with supporting technical and resource areas. The exposed wiring and galvanised steel cable trays in the ceilings is beautifully juxtaposed with ornate frames and bespoke furniture in the Reception area for the salons, which is dominated by a sweeping curved wall and chandelier.
The logo incorporates these two contracting styles. The curves that form the shape of human figure flow into an industrial stencil typeface. Metallic signage around the salons combined with a range of high-end promotional materials compliment the surroundings.
