I posted a little while ago about my salon logo. I finally decided on a logo and had it refined.
However, a friend mentioned a few things about the logo that were 'off' that I hadn't even noticed.
My area is undergoing a revitalization of midcentury modern buildings. The area is starting to have a downtown lofty feeling.
The salon is modern..clean lines. Fairly simple. No fluff. I wanted it to appear unisex..not girly or flowery like some salons. I have a full clientelle- not looking for clients but I plan on hiring two stylists and hoped the salon would appeal to variety of people.
This is getting wordy. I don't want a "bunch of blue haired shampoo set" people working there..

The logo is on a black background ***only because I have dark windows and they kept giving me black lettering**** My sign guy said he could extract the logo from the black background since it really isn't part of the logo. The windows aren't black anyway, just dark.
She suggested stacking the words..since there is no heirarchy- ? I want people to know the name of the salon but I also want them to be driving by and go "oh a salon".
I wish I would have had her do the logo but she's so busy..
I used an online company for the logo. It was a horrible experience - not sure I can mention the name here but it wasn't ebay. Local companies were out of my price range..maybe because it's Scottsdale. And by that I mean over 1500.00. NOT that they aren't worth it and good for them because they are obviously getting it. I just couldn't swing that.
So- having said all that- you won't hurt my feelings if you tear it apart...much. :)
