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..

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. :)
