When global hair and beauty brand Sally Beauty Holdings were relocating to new headquarters, they wanted to attract talent from the local area as well as retain their existing workforce by offering an inspirational place to work. To provide a supportive and engaging environment, the space needed to reflect Sally’s brand values, offer an agile workspace for their 170 staff, as well as provide excellent staff facilities.
Initially, we created a bespoke design solution, which defined the Sally brand and culture. We then rolled this out over a series of buildings to check suitability; enabling Sally to choose the right space for them. Conveying Sally’s core messaging of beauty and elegance, the open plan workspace encourages agile working via various platforms including breakout space, quiet areas and part open project pods. A central, interactive hub comprises a café, training rooms and a 3,500 sq ft mock-up shop, which allows easy access to products and retail displays for training purposes.
Maintaining a close relationship with the client and understanding the Sally Vision was instrumental in successfully delivering this project. Our team worked with the carefully selected Sally ‘Change Champions’ team for a year before we carried out the fit-out; regular workshops and furniture visits were carried out to ensure the scheme was developed with the client.” Alex Marrs, Creative Manager, Area
"Here at Sally we love helping people look and feel great and it was vital to capture that brand essence in our new building. We believe we’ve achieved that aim with a great looking office in Bracknell and the energy here is clear for all to see."
