When Eden Sassoon opened her salon, Eden by Eden Sassoon in West Hollywood, Calif., her intention was to create a homey environment with a Malibu Beach feel. “I wanted a minimalist, classic decor that would be complemented by neutral tones,” says Sassoon, the daughter of beauty industry icon Vidal Sassoon. “I always loved spending time in my dad’s salons and for my own salon I wanted women to feel like they were in my home and a relaxing space. Specifically wanting to stay away from the typical salon design, light-colored wood finishes throughout the space are highlighted by high ceilings creating what we call a sanctuary of light. This light fills the area, illuminating the walls where private family photos in black and white hang of me with my father Vidal, mother Beverly, and my children.”
The salon incorporates natural materials, different styles of wood, and soft colors to achieve a welcoming environment with an open feel. It houses 12 hair stations, three makeup stations, and two manicure stations.
