在 Coffeyhallett 的 Madeleine 和 Taylor 的精心设计指导下，悉尼顶级美发沙龙之一经历了一次当之无愧的改头换面，彰显了其才华和特色。曾经以大理石和黑色家具为特色的 COV 美发沙龙，如今已转向苹果花粉色的色调和渐变，随时准备重新吸引新老客户。
Under the thoughtful design direction of Madeleine and Taylor of Coffeyhallett, one of Sydney’s top hair salons has undergone a well-deserved makeover that epitomises its talent and character. Once characterised by marble and black furniture, COV Hair has pivoted towards shades and gradients of apple-blossom pinks—ready to re-captivate loyal and new customers alike.
店主约阿夫-科恩（Yoav Cohen）设想的沙龙空间位于悉尼莫斯曼（Mosman），摆脱了美发沙龙通常采用的临床设置。沙龙的设计和精神围绕着自我表达、一致性和酷酷的原创性”，Coffeyhallett 转而采用接地气的材料，摒弃了常见的钢制软垫椅子和黑色家具，取而代之的是时尚、简洁的元素。
Located in Sydney’s Mosman, owner Yoav Cohen envisioned a space that steps away from the clinical setups often prescribed in hair salons. Through the brief which states the “salon’s design and ethos revolve around self-expression, consistency, and cool originality”, Coffeyhallett turned to grounded materials, departing from the commonly seen steel padded chairs and black furniture—replacing them with sleek and clean-cut elements.
尽管平面布局略显复杂，但设计师还是保留了原店铺的布局，只是做了一些调整。COV Hair 了解到店内人流量很大，因此采用了极简主义的方法来平衡店内的动线。经典的大理石台面和靠墙的黑色木工板被粉红色和桃红色的橱柜所取代。精选的混凝土墙壁和地板也涂成了粉红色，营造出一种 “粉色宫殿 “的美感。
Despite the slightly tricky floorplan, the designers were able to retain the layout of the original store, although with a few tweaks. Understanding that foot traffic is heavy inside, COV Hair employs a minimalist approach that would balance the movement within. The classic marble benchtops and black carpentry banked against the walls have been replaced by cabinetry painted in pink and peach. Selected concrete walls and floors are now painted pink to complete a “pink palace” aesthetic.
Former hair-cutting stations are now replaced with floor-length mirrors, as the former tables are removed and replaced with a pink tiled wall for them to lean against. From the street front’s light lemon façade, the terracotta pink glow offsets a fizzy pink-lemonade vibe.
Accompanying the fearless expressions of pink, touches of futuristic and contemporary tones are added for a balanced narrative. These include the stainless-steel colour bench anchoring at the heart of the salon and the benches abutting the mirrors with cutouts for hair dryers and tools baskets. Additionally, the simple geometry of the Plexi bubble-shaped chairs (imported from France as a nod to Cohen’s hometown) to the wash basin to the wall sconces by the entrance sparks a nostalgic touch of the futurism era. The sentiment seems to be further enhanced by the salon’s presence at night. Against the street facades of whites and greys, the yellow frontage of the shop emits a warm glow adorned by a spark of green.
COV Hair Salon playfully deviates from its past and onto something more exciting. Especially when the salon has been artfully styling hair for nine years now, the uplifting and quirky interior is bound to send the team to new heights. Pink, glorious pink! One can never have too much!
