Abraham Cota Paredes and his idea of restyling in white

The Mexican architect Abraham Cota Paredes has made the minimalist restyling of a hairdresser in Guadalajara making it transforming the interior into a sparkling white.

Paredes and his local firm Cotaparedes Arquitectos were asked to renew the identity of L’Occoco, one of the country’s largest beauty salons franchises. The goal was to enhance its image of cleanliness and elegance. The design is linked to the group’s black and white logo, which inspired Paredes.

The 92-square-meter salon façade includes wall windows with black grilles that form a semi-protected canopy outside the entrance. Inside, thousands of thin slatted panels cover the ceiling and walls to create an optical illusion. The layout revolves around an L-shaped reception desk centered in the center of the salon, with workstations on both sides. Along the front of the desk, all-white beauty products are displayed inside a cabinet.

On the left, there is a set of six hair-cutting stations. The upper half of the walls is covered with mirrors, which reflect the white interior. Even the upholstered chairs and cabinets are white, creating a visual effect without interruptions. The only non-white elements in the salon are the black Salón L’Occocó logo on the back wall, the metal bases on the salon chairs and the blue-colored glass on the desk.
