As the country emerges from lockdown, Mesart is preparing for an extremely busy opening period with over 3000 loyal clients already on the waiting list for appointments in the new salon.

Regarding the exciting new salon, Stuart said: “The concept behind Mesart GWR is to create a unique space where clients can come and relax while having their hair styled. Our space offers a lifestyle-oriented antidote to the traditional salon that is busy, crowded, and a little bit stressful at times.”

The salon, which was originally due to open at the end of March, brings a new era of lifestyle salon to Glasgow and will be unlike anything seen before in the city. Owner Stuart Whitelaw, founder of Mesart and one of the UK’s most respected hairdressers, masterminded the lifestyle salon concept from the outset. In line with the brand’s ethos of wellbeing and client experience, the new luxury salon effortlessly combines high specification fixtures and finishes with a chic and industrial interior aesthetic.

Client experience is pivotal to the brand and salon touchpoints will include a calmly lit lounge area for clients to relax in while they have their colour on, separate to the main space of the salon, allowing clients to be comfortable and even work in an area fitted out with charging stations and refreshments.

Stuart added: “Our clients are time-poor in this busy digital age and they are multi-tasking individuals who might only dedicate time to themselves when they come to visit us, so we want to ensure their visit is memorable and as relaxing as possible. We work to ensure every guest, regardless of age or gender feels completely at home in our salons – this is absolutely central in everything we do.

As we emerge from one of the most challenging times a business could possibly face, I am extremely excited and relieved to finally be able to open our doors to our clients and to get our team back to work.”

The new Mesart GWR super-salon boasts over 6000 sq ft of space over three floors and is the interior vision of interior designer Paula Murray Fulton from Supertonic Interiors and also features a bespoke mural from renowned Glasgow graffiti artist Kinglisty.
