“A private studio for my unique type of hairdressing as a curl specialist for naturally curly hair.”
Donna created a beautiful space to bring her hairdressing clients into. Once her cabin had been built, she took the necessary measurements and found equipment that would perfectly fit the space, including the basin which is nestled in the corner next to the windows.
When searching for a solution to create a client space at home, Donna wanted something that fit with her approach to her work: “natural, gentle, relaxed and yet on point.”
She found that the ambience of the full wood construction and the look and feel of the log cabin style was the perfect fit.
“I love the double French doors and raked ceiling with it’s perfect centre beam and have thoroughly enjoyed making the interior and exterior look exactly what I wanted it to look like with furnishings, flooring and extra touches for my guests.”
We love that Donna made the Star Cabin her own, right down to the smallest detail. The back of the cabin faces Donna’s beautiful garden. She wanted to make the most of the sun streaming in through the back wall of her cabin and the beautiful, relaxing garden, so Donna bought an extra window and added them both to the back wall. She loved that it was easy to customise the window and remove the lattice work allowing for an uninterrupted view of the back garden.
She made other additions to her cabin like a wood look laminate floor (easier for cleaning up stray hairs) and a heatpump (and underfloor insulation)
“I’ve found the cabin very cosy through the winter months. I have a heatpump which warms and cools the space very efficiently, and a portable dehumidifier which I use to remove the humidity that comes from working in the basin and drying hair off.”
A She Shed means that Donna has her own space. Made even better by the fact it was able to be constructed on the property.
“It’s such a great way to work in my niche line of work. My customers who arrive for an appointment always comment on how much they love the studio as soon as they see it and come in the door. It’s a real point of conversation!
The customer service aspect to help me turn a delivered pile of wood, into the fully functioning private curl studio that it is, has been excellent. Nothing was too hard for the team to help with or advice on.”
