In 2019, the Headromance salon was seven years old and in need of a revamp. Being a busy salon with 14 work stations open six days a week had understandably started to take its toll. So began a major refurbishment to retain the salon’s cool vibe but add a more grown-up edge, ultimately sporting a much lighter, brighter look.
