The browns project has been one where preservation and luxury are key. With an eye for detail throughout in the design, browns wanted relaxation to be a priority.
The salon’s concept gave the team a sense of direction, designing handmade styling stations from railway sleepers crafted by local tradesmen. A 150 year old brick wall in the main salon has also been lovingly restored, creating a focal point that connects browns with the history of the building and Dumfries.
Offering state-of-the-art climate control, browns assures complete comfort throughout the salon. This comfort also extends to the unique and sensual backwash area, which has made-to-measure beds, where reclining arm chairs massage your body perfectly from head-to-toe and the personally trained team create an ambiance like no other.
Along with the new look, browns now offer a huge range of beauty treatments, with highly trained professional therapists concentrating on result driven therapies that produce real results.
Browns is also the first salon to launch the Windle & Moodie range in Scotland and is an exclusive stockist in Dumfries. Created by industry favourites Paul Windle and Neil Moodie, the cult haircare brand launched to major media acclaim in 2014. Salon founder Nelson Brown is so taken by the products; he’s even become an inspirational educator for the brand. Nelson says,
Our business is a family affair with my mother, sister, Jacquie and me. We’re thrilled with our new space which is a major refurbishment of my sister’s original beauty premises - it’s a delight to have a new destination for our loyal clients and team. We have tripled the space compared to our previous salon in Dumfries and now have a dedicated hair treatment spa and offer a portfolio of second-to-none beauty services.
The design brief was to create a luxurious New York loft apartment vibe, making the most of many original features going back two centuries and I think we’ve done it! We’ve invested heavily in comfort and coolness; it’s a bespoke build with clients’ wellbeing and relaxation in mind. That’s why Windle & Moodie is such a great product fit - the products look cool, perform brilliantly, create great hair and are eco-friendly too.
