Solarium Point

Solarium Point is a gorgeous salon that has recently opened in Ramsgate. After some major re-branding and a move to new premises, this has got to be my number one destination for hair and beauty treatments in the area.

Founded by AMB Design Studio, Solarium Point is definitely somewhere for fans of stunning interiors to enjoy. Its mission is to transform the traditional salon experience by combining design, fashion and beauty. Offering beauty, hair, nails and tanning treatments, the salon takes its inspiration from runway trends in order to suit women who are looking for contemporary and elegant designs.

Despite being reasonably girly, I've never been one for regular salon visits. In fact, it's something that is quite out of my comfort zone. However, I had heard really good things about Solarium Point and wanted to check it out.

For my first visit, I wanted to have a haircut. Bee Bee, the hair stylist, was really attentive and listened to exactly what I wanted. Solarium Point specialises in modern cuts and colours that are wearable and easily styled from home. Using Bumble and Bumble, the salon's lovely signature products, I was really impressed by the look Bee Bee created. She made suggestions, offered opinions and advice, and made the whole experience a comfortable and enjoyable one. My hair felt really healthy and I was genuinely pleased with the end result.

While there, I chatted with the salon's owner, Anna, who is an interior designer. She told me that she wanted to create an environment that fused industrial elements with glamour. It was her aim to establish somewhere that is feminine, but also understated and art/design conscious. There are beautiful details throughout and the salon has had a helping hand from one of my favourite Margate shops, Etcetera.

It's a unique destination for hair and beauty treatments and has changed my perception of the salon experience. There are plenty of cool and arty magazines to read, the background music is good and there's a range of drinks to choose from. It was particularly great to be surrounded by so much light pink; not only Pantone's colour of the year, but one that I have always been a fan of, as many of my wardrobe items and blog design may suggest. They're a really friendly and accommodating team and I found it refreshing to be amongst such lovely and original interior design.

Visit Solarium Point at 55 Queen Street, Ramsgate.
