It’s not just NAF!’s nail art that wows their clients. The award-winning nail salon aims to sell the whole package, providing impressive manicures, top chat and a fun, friendly space that mirrors the creativity of their talented nail techs.
Earlier this year, NAF! relocated, moving to bigger premises to accommodate their packed appointment book and ever-growing customer base. It was then that NAF!, as we know it, was born.
“The details are important – we want to make sure the vibe from social media is consistent when entering the salon.”
Old vs New
“We want to create a space that clients enjoy coming to,” said NAF! Salon owner Tammy, “The details are important – we want to make sure the vibe from social media is consistent when entering the salon.”
As two-time winners of the Scratch award for Best Use of Social Media, their social presence is impressive, perfectly reflecting their easy-going, fun attitude to nail art.
As with their Instagram feed, you’re instantly drawn in once you’ve stepped inside the NAF! doors and, good news for nail art lovers everywhere, no idea is out of bounds at NAF!, with the team accommodating the craziest designs without the bat of an eyelid. It’s this sense of creativity that makes the salon’s décor and approach different from any other.
The fresh, white walls are adorned with unique wall art, signs, lightening and designs, all perfectly representing the salon’s ‘anything goes’ ethos.
“It’s a busy salon, with a team of 20 staff, so it can be quite chaotic at times,” said Tammy. “I wanted to create a minimal look but pair this with interesting art and pieces that reflect our creativity.
“Clients tend to look around while they’re getting their nails done so I wanted to give them something fun to look at – I want them to notice something different each time they visit.”
Tammy credits Pinterest, Instagram and her own personal taste as the inspiration behind NAF!’s much-loved décor.
“People tend to love the pedicure area, with the swimming pool wallpaper and baby pink seating. “I haven’t had a holiday in ages – this influenced me to create a holiday-inspired area in the salon!”
“I want them to notice something different each time they visit.”
Despite the fun, care-free vibe that NAF! exudes, Tammy knows the importance of décor and how it has a big effect on the overall NAF! experience. “People pay a lot to get their nails done so we want to offer a visual experience. It’s important that we deliver the whole package – the service, the atmosphere and of course, amazing nails. “We’ve had such a positive reaction to the new décor and premises. There’s a lot more space now and, overall, it just looks a lot cleaner and fresher. “It’s important that the space reflects our creativity and I think we’ve achieved that.”
