The new showpiece on New Zealand’s South Island is Adrian Barclay’s new Venom salon in Invercargill. The interior has the sleek, minimalist use of warm, earth based wood with accenting colours of black and silver, evoking the feelings of New World luxury. Two beautiful and contrasting entranceways encase Venom like a precious jewel. Schist stone pillars create a dramatic facade leading clients into the salon through the viewing gallery. The east entrance boasts the use of graphic wooden slats which finish Venom salon off as a very commanding structure. Adrian was 2009 Hair Expo New Zealand Hairdresser of the Year. He is a well known educator for L’Oreal and hairdressing identity.
