A classic but boldly modern design, Jose Luis Salon and Boutique offers an elegant and sophisticated vibe with a hint of traditional glamour. The salon is located within 600,000-square-feet of diverse retailers, restaurants, and homes with a mix of Austin’s best homegrown brands and best-in-class national brands.This 20-station facility features a wall of glass in the storefront area, a blue quartz reception desk, and 20-foot-high ceilings. The chandelier at the entry was custom-made to highlight the high ceilings while a unique wall covering with exaggerated flowers adorn the cloud that holds the chandelier.
The design of the salon has an overall sense of history. The flooring showcases a herringbone pattern using tiles that mimic French oak. On the walls, padded wallpaper simulates antique French molding and also works to help absorb sound. The styling stations have exotic wood veneers, granite countertops, and custom mirrors with inset lighting. A bonus, the stations are mobile and can be moved to accommodate fashion shows and various styling events.
There’s also an integrated boutique that offers a variety of merchandise from stationary, home goods, and gift-ables to sophisticated garments and luxurious gold-dipped jewelry.
One of three salons for Jose Luis, the Austin, Texas brand just celebrated 30 years in the business. This location, dubbed Domain Northside, is two-years-young and was nominated for the North American Hairstyling Awards for Salon Design. As a collective Jose Luis salons were ranked Best Salon in Austin Monthly magazine and all three locations have received Salon Today magazine’s Salons of Distinction honor.
