After a chance meeting with Charles Worthington, who had decided to retire and close his salon, Brooks & Brooks owners Sally and Jamie relocated and took over the Covent Garden space. Keen to keep the aesthetic of the Grade 2 listed building – with its wonky walls, fireplaces, and stunning staircase – the focus was to create a space “where our clients and our team can relax in a contemporary setting,” explains Sally.
The suspended metal workstations are designed for the client’s and the stylist’s needs alike. The lighting, made by one of Sally’s clients, sees everything suspended from black metal work to create a practical and eye-catching visual.
The front window is a mix of plants in ‘face planters’, with each pot having its own hairstyle. It’s already proving a popular photo opp for passers-by! The conservatory allows natural light to flood in from the roof, where you can also find a bespoke colour bar and a slatted wood feature wall. Upstairs, the studio is full of creative nooks, a library space packed with books and magazines and, as the space develops, it will evolve as a hub of creative energy.
