How do I decide on a salon uniform color?

August 17, 2011

I’ve picked out a uniform style I like for my salon employees, but do you have any advice on how to decide on a color? Do certain colors convey certain impressions?

For optimum results, try mixing your corporate color with neutrals. —  Agnes Dalisay is founder and owner of Chi Couture Uniforms (

Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
