Liv Aveda

Mankato, MN

ISG takes pride in our long-term relationships with clients, joining them in their goals to grow and expand their business. After designing Liv Aveda’s original space over ten years ago, as well as a previous expansion, ISG worked with the owners as they considered whether to open a satellite salon or expand their current location. It was determined that the most effective way to proceed was to renovate and expand their existing location. This required taking over an adjacent, vacated retail space and then designing an efficient flow of services for clients and staff that made sense and utilized space in a smart way.

The renovated salon stays true to the Aveda brand, while also venturing in a new direction of color and style. A neutral color palette with cream walls is accented with rich and vibrant cranberry accents found in the casework at the reception area and at each styling station. The open ceiling was enclosed and painted white for a sleek, contemporary look. Recessed lighting is directed toward each styling chair at every station. Wood-grained floor tiles in cream and dark brown add to the modern style.

An expanded lounge and waiting area for the spa incorporates soothing colors, furniture and accessories in soft tones of blue and green. Three spa treatment rooms were added along with additional offices and meeting areas. The updated manicure and pedicure areas are realigned together for a better use of space. This thriving salon is now better able to meet the needs of their growing business.
