Gainfort Salon Design Hair Creation 30

Client: Hair Creation, Blackrock, Dublin

Project: 14 Seat Salon

A working relationship of almost 60 years and counting Hair Creations was established in 1962 by Peter Munnelly and he chose OLYMP as his salon equipment provider for the first time, a working relationship of almost 60 years and counting. At the time the OLYMP Distributor was Terry Heaney of Terrisales. Hair Creations soon became a leading salon in the Dublin hairdressing scene and as the salon evolved Peter continued to choose OLYMP for refurbishments. Michael Gainfort of Gainfort Salon Design took over the distribution of OLYMP in the 1990’s from his good friend and mentor Terry Heaney and has enjoyed working with generations of the Munnelly family, as Peter’s daughter and sons Anna and Alan in turn took over the reins.

Last year Anna and Alan decided it was time to totally refresh Hair Creations and they knew after 50 years in business they wanted the new salon to be something extremely special. They appointed Gainfort Salon Design to project manage and as loyal customers to the OLYMP brand it was decided to bring the Munnellys to Stuttgart to OLYMPs European HQ for an inspirational couple of days at the OLYMP showrooms. They got to see the full range in various functional salon settings and meet with In House designers and specialists; and from that the all new Hair Creations Salon was reopened just in time for the Covid ease of restrictions at the end of June.
