Project name: Michael John Guzzon Hair Salon
Project type: Retail Space
Location: London, UK
Architect: Maria Oliva Interiors
Cleaf’s official distributor: Xylo Surfaces

The Michael John Guzzon Hair Salon in London by Maria Oliva Interiors is the August Monthly Winner of the Shaping Surfaces competition by Cleaf.

Located in a bustling West London neighbourhood, the project sought to transform the two-storey property into a luxurious temple for hair wellness that provides a calming escape for busy Londoners.
The main objective was to create a space where the whole haircare process, from consultation to blow dry, should feel like a complete wellbeing experience, much like a ritual. Upon leaving, customers should feel like their hair has been worshipped in a celestial space.
The choice of materials blends the natural, organic feel of wood and plaster walls with the curved veins of beautiful onyx tiles.
The wood effect of Sablè LR22 was chosen for the shampooing area, designed as a place to completely relax, where customers can physically and metaphorically let their hair down.
