Gaining quite a bit of popularity now that she has made her hair dressing salon bolder and better with her 12 square meter Cabana Cabin, Lisa from Waves Hair Salon is back almost a year later since she first opened her doors to customers! We are loving how the whole look of this Mediterranean inspired hair salon has really come together, especially the colour scheme, the now established landscaping and styling choices. We check in with her to see how things have been since she bought her Cabana SheShed, and what sort of words of wisdom, tips and tricks she has to offer for other businesswomen who want to establish a work from home abode as well.
"I chose the Cabana kitset by SheShed Cabins, and the reason for that is so that I could utilize the space properly with all of my equipment that I use on a daily basis. I just love the timber, the French doors and the beautiful window. The high roof and the smell is authentic and fresh."- Lisa C.
Lisa shows us around her Brisbane based salon in detail, showing us her bespoke pieces of furniture, mirrors, arched shelves for her products, and even a feature front desk with a computer and the "Waves" signage, so there is a proper entrance to the salon. It certainly is an experience walking in, and the small touches of greenery are great additions as well as soothing. In the beginnings stages of designing her salon, Lisa actually reached out to Commercial Interior Designer Nicola, from She Creates Co, who really helped her bring her vision to life!
"Nicola is an absolute angel! She understood my vision entirely, and blew us out of this world bringing it all together. I needed to ensure every inch of every space was accounted for, so that my space was operational and everything had room to fit. Her ideas and the amount of knowledge an interior designer has is worth every cent. The preliminary drawings of my cabinetry were stunning and brought to life with her own contacts (builder/handyman) I honestly could not have achieved my dream space without Nicola."- Lisa C.
Now Lisa has an amazing space that has become a bit of a HIT on social media, and Nine News Australia as well!
Lisa adores her 3m x 4m Cabana SheShed and loves how she can still work from home, but still have that feel of having a completely separate environment to work in. It is a perfect spot for her clients to getaway and have a fabulous pampering experience, while the proximity to home adds to the versatility to Lisa's hair salon. She is so happy that she has invested in a SheShed for her business, and reckons that if there is anyone else out there who is wanting a long lasting business from home - a SheShed is definitely well worth the investment.
"One of the best parts of having a SheShed is that you have a blank canvas to work with. You can do whatever you like with it and make it unique to you - whether it is a workspace or something you have at home for hobbies. My favourite feature of this shed is the raked ceilings and ho much space that you have in here."- Lisa C.
We are so proud of Lisa and how much she has achieved with Waves Hair Salon, she sure knows how to make her dreams a reality! When asked about what she now loves about running her business from a SheShed from home, this is what she has to say:
"I love that I can drop my kids at kindy, come home and then walk straight into my work space with a fresh coffee in hand. I can have peace for a moment to set up for the day and set my goals. I believe you can run any business you like from your home, if you have the right space and environment."- Lisa C.
