Create an atmosphere of rest and relaxation in your salon by reducing the background noise with soundproofing materials.
Salon Noise Is a Reality — So Is the Solution
Noisiness can become a problem when it detracts from the customer experience. Whether it’s a blaring hairdryer or a chatty patron a few chairs down, too much noise at the wrong times can leave customers feeling stressed or uncomfortable. The same goes for your staff — a noisy hair salon can be an unpleasant working environment.
Fortunately, there are ways to limit the adverse effects of sound so that everyone has a better time at your salon. Soundproof Cow develops absorbent materials that will improve the atmosphere of your salon. Work with us to see how you’ll benefit from a more peaceful hair salon.
Reduce the Effects of Hair Salon Noise
If you’re looking to soundproof a hair salon, the key is to prevent sound from reverberating around the room. Hairdryers, voices, footsteps — they all cause noise that will bounce off hard surfaces. Consider your salon’s interior. It’s full of hard surfaces, isn’t it? Your hard floors make post-appointment cleanup easy and mirror-covered walls are a must in any salon, but these surfaces kick soundwaves all over the room.
Reducing salon noise is all about giving the soundwaves somewhere to go. That’s where sound absorption comes in. Soft absorptive materials transform soundwaves into heat energy upon contact. The heat disperses instead of bouncing off of the surface. As a result, you have less echo, making the salon seem quieter by default and reducing the impact of noisy equipment. All of a sudden, it’s easier for multiple conversations to happen at once, and you can hear each other over noisy equipment.
Sound Absorption Materials for Salons
At Soundproof Cow, we have several products that are particularly useful for salons. Here are some of our top recommendations for hair salon soundproofing:
- Acoustic foam: Hang foam panels on the walls to absorb sound. They come in colors that can complement your salon’s decor. There are also art acoustic panels that come with custom designs.
- Acoustic partitions: These foam barriers have feet at the bottom so they can stand vertically and absorb noise anywhere you move them. Use partitions as a barrier between chairs to prevent conversations from bleeding over or stop a hairdryer two chairs over from interrupting your chat. They also work well as barriers between the waiting area and the rest of your salon if you have an open floor plan.
- Hanging baffles: These hanging baffles are fabric-covered foam panels with metal grommets that you can feed a chain through to hang from any surface. Suspend them from your salon’s ceiling to prevent echoes.
- Flooring underlayment: Impact Barrier QT Flooring Underlayment is a rubber material that you can install under any type of flooring to reduce impact noise while also adding a spongy layer that reduces echoes.
