  • Update Your Salon on a Budget

    Beauty Salon...

    Is your salon starting to look a little worn and outdated? Whilst you’re waiting for your next refurbishment, there are some small things you can do to give it a boost in the meantime! Check out our top tips to help you update your beauty business on a budget.

    .

    1. Make a good first impression

    First impressions really do count, which is why it’s important to make the outside of your salon look inviting and enticing. It can be something as simple as a lick of paint, or making sure that your windows are sparkling clean.

    In terms of branding, minimalism is keyit’s best to avoid having lots of text on your salon sign, and you should ensure that your window displays are completely free of clutter.

    .

    2. Rearrange your salon

customer's hair

    You don’t need to buy loads of new and expensive furniture to revamp your salon. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple rearrangement. If you run a hair salon, consider swapping your backwashes with your styling chairs to mix things up. For a returning customer, it will feel like a fresh, new experience but at no additional cost to your business.

    .

    3. Accessorise

    Accessorising is an easy way to rejuvenate your salon, and doesn’t have to cost a fortune! A few faux plants, some new magazine holders and couple of lamps would be a great start. If you want to go further, you could add some more mirrors to brighten up your salon, and make it seem bigger than it actually is!

    .

    4. Invest in a new uniform

  • Florence Roby Featured in the Parliamentary Review

    Florence Roby Parliamentary Review

    Earlier this year, Florence Roby were delighted to be featured as a Best Practice Representative in the Parliamentary Review.

    The magazine highlights the best practices of key UK businesses, with comments from a range of award-winning journalists, business leaders and other professionals.  

    Notably, the Review’s chairmen Lord Blunkett and Lord Pickles commented that:

    “The ability to listen and learn from one another has always been vital in parliament, in business and in most aspects of daily life. But at this particular moment in time, as national and global events continue to reiterate, it is uncommonly crucial that we forge new channels of communication and reinforce existing ones. The following article from Florence Roby is an attempt to do just that.”

    If you’re a pear shape, you might have curvy hips and thighs, accompanied by a small waist and bust. Therefore, drawing attention to your upper half is an effective way of balancing out and flattering your figure.

    Apple

    On the other hand, apple shapes often have full busts, straight waistlines, narrow shoulders and slim legs. We think our Potenza Dress would suit apple shapes beautifully, particularly because of its structured neckline which highlights the collarbones. This particular style of dress also helps to define the waistline, something which can be further enhanced with our Obi Belt. As well as black, the dress is also available in plum and grey.

    .

    Straight

    Straight or ‘boyish’ shapes are usually slim with small busts, narrow hips and a straight waistline. Chic clothing looks great on girls with this figure, and our Dasa Dress is no exception.

  • A Colour Guide: Beauty Uniforms to Match Your Salon

    a luxury lilac coloured hair salon

    In our previous blog post, we spoke a lot about what uniform styles would best suit salon workers. But what about colour? In the beauty industry, colour is a very important part of a business’ image. Unlike style, deciding on a salon wear colour is less about the individual worker, and more about the brand.

    So what colour uniform would best match your salon’s interior and branding?

    .

    Black Uniforms

    A Florence Roby Enzo Tunic in Black

    Black is one of the most popular colours because of its versatility and chicness. A black uniform would go particularly well with branding/decor that contains white, red, purple, light green and other bold colours. It is best to avoid a black uniform if your salon has navy and dark green shades, as these would most probably clash.

    Nearly all of our beauty tunics, trousers and dresses include a black option. One of our favourites is the Enzo Tunic, which we think looks particularly striking in black.

    .

    Plum Uniforms

    a Florence Roby Calvi Tunic in Plum

    Plum is another versatile colour and a popular choice among beauty workers. If your salon contains shades of green, yellow, silver, or gold then a plum uniform would look fantastic. Plum would also match well with rose gold and cream.

    Our Calvi Tunic is a stunning option in plum. With a square neckline, structured shape and added pockets, it is both elegant and practical.

    .

    Teal Uniforms

    A florence roby lucca tunic in teal

    One of our favourite uniform colours is teal. It best suits contrasting shades such as mustard, copper, maroon and gold. If you have a grey interior, then a teal uniform would also complement it beautifully.

    Our Lucca Tunic looks particularly lovely in teal. The simple design and flattering fit allows the blue-green tones to radiate.

    .

    Grey Uniforms

    A florence roby dasa dress in grey

    Whether you’re looking for a dress or tunic/trouser ensemble, we have loads of stunning grey options available. What’s particularly great about this colour is that it goes well with a variety of shades. Grey looks best with light colours such as mint green, lilac, cream and baby pink, as well as teal. If your brand includes any of these colours, then grey is definitely the uniform colour for you.

    For the perfect grey dress, take a look at our Dasa Dress. With its mandarin-style neckline and sewn-in obi waist belt, it is the essence of sophistication.

  • Five Beauty Tunics to Suit Every Body Shape

    model wearing florence roby uniform and holding flowers

    Deciding on uniforms for your spa, beauty or hair salon can often be a tricky task! Choosing a colour is one thing, but trying to find garments that flatter every type of figure can be difficult.

    Here at Florence Roby, we’ve been designing uniforms for over fifty years and know a thing or two about creating the perfect fit. Therefore, we’ve compiled a guide to help you and your work colleagues find the ideal beauty tunic suited to your body shape.

    Apple

    Apple shapes are characterised by their narrow shoulders, full bust, straight waistline and slim legs. We think our Favale Tunic would suit this figure perfectly. The tunic flatters the waistline with its panelled front, whilst the structured and hexagonal neckline would emphasise the collarbones beautifully. Available in five vibrant colours, this is a firm Florence Roby favourite.

    model wearing a florence roby favale tunic in grey

    Pear

    Contrastingly, pear shapes often have small busts, a slim waist and more weight centred around the lower half of their bodies. To create a more balanced silhouette, drawing the eye to the neckline with extra detailing is usually very effective. Our Como Tunic has a unique collar featuring a diamante button which instantly flatters any pear shaped figure. Available in six beautiful colours.

    model wearing a florence roby como tunic in teal

    Straight

    If you have a straight or ‘boyish’ figure, then you probably have a small bust, narrow hips and slim legs. For a more curvy look, our Alba Tunic has an asymmetric hemline and buckle detail that exaggerates the waistline and creates the perfect silhouette. Available in navy, teal and plum.

    model wearing a florence roby alba tunic in navy

    Oval

    Oval shapes often have balanced hips and shoulders, an undefined waistline and shapely legs. Our Malfa Tunic really does compliment this body type. The boxy shape means that the material skims the silhouette beautifully, whilst the ¾ length sleeves help define the waist due to their positioning. Available in black, grey and teal.

    model wearing a florence roby malfa tunic in black

    Hourglass

    Hourglasses usually have a full bust, slim waist and wide hips. Because this is a balanced body shape, women with hourglass figures often find that they suit a variety of clothing styles. Our Ancona Tunic cinches in at the waist to emphasise the silhouette, and has a beautiful double pleat neckline feature that is incredibly flattering. Available in plum, teal, grey and black.
