Every hair salon needs to be divided into few zones. You should have a separate spaces for dressing room and waiting room, even though they are not required by the law. However, they are really convenient and your clients will definitely appreciate such conveniences. What is more, there should be zones of sanitary and hygienic facilities, both for customers and employees. It means that there need to be a room for washing and dying hair, but also a sink with hot and cold water, where all the accessories and supplies will be washed. You also cannot forget about the trashcan of appropriate size. The room in which the whole equipment is stored, should also have a backwash area.
