Festive Styling at Anthony John

You know when you find the perfect hairdressers and it becomes a treat to visit? Yeah well that happened to us a few years ago when Anthony John Salons opened at The Heart of the Country near Lichfield. It is such a lovely relaxed salon with some of the best stylists around. So when Tony the owner asked me to do the Christmas styling this year I was over the moon. The salon is located in a converted barn with two mezzanine levels so it was a dream to style.

I wanted to retain the gorgeous decor whilst making it as twinkly and festive as possible so I wanted to go for lots of greenery and white accents. This was my Pinterest inspiration. Pop over and see what else I have been pinning.

There are lots of windows in the salon so I wanted to make contemporary wreaths to go at each one. I was really pleased with the way these turned out. The staff were desperate for a real tree! So I had to give them what they wanted and I made some simple white paper bunting to decorate it.

Because of the size of the salon it was important that I made large scale wreaths, which I loved making to create a big impact. The other aspect that I wanted to consider was the height of the ceilings. I really wanted the ceiling space to be filled so I opted for white paper lanterns which we suspended on fishing wire. These have made a huge difference and a focal point as you walk in.

The other area that needed styling was the fabulous Balcony area where clients relax whilst waiting for their colour to develop and drink a glass of something cold or a warming latte. This is my favourite space in the salon and I wanted to make people feel Christmassy whilst they sat up there. The simplicity of using holly but glitzing it up with a sparky rose gold runner worked really well.

It was  a huge challenge to do especially as there are so many areas and such large spaces to fill but I am really pleased with the results and even more pleased to know that Anthony John’s clients have commented on how much they like it. Thats the best bit.
