New Cake Boss!

Salon Interiors has been happily working with Buddy Valastro, owner and star of TLC’s Cake Boss program to open yet another location of his real world bakery, Carlo’s Bakery in Times Square in the heart of New York City.

Here’s a few photos of our guys in action at the installation of Buddy’s cabinets and display showcases!

Fishing Trip 2016

Salon Interiors had their annual company fishing trip on September 9th, 2016. They weren’t biting as well as we’d hoped they be, but the weather was perfect. We did end up with enough small bluefish for everyone that wanted to bring some home was able to enjoy the fruits of their day. Thanks to Golden Eagle fishing in Belmar NJ for a terrific day on the water.

Salon Facelift On A Budget

The thought of upgrading your salon may hit you from time to time. You know the feeling of creating a brand new look that can re-invigorate the soul and uplift the spirit. Reality brings you back to Earth. How will you afford this? You just don’t have the budget to do everything, the way you’d like.

Enter Salon Interiors of South Hackensack, NJ. Salon Interiors has been creating custom made salon furniture for 38 years. Salon Interiors makes it possible that with a few simple changes you CAN create a whole new look and also get the quality that you want.

The hair salon pictured below is located in Matawan, New Jersey. The owner had a maximum budget of 35K for construction AND new furniture.

Here’s What We Did…

  • New Vinyl Flooring and New Paint
  • Re-Used Existing Plumbing and Electrical Connections.
  • New Entry and Reception with a Back Light Panel Separating Areas
  • New Stations, Cabinetry, Chairs and Shampoo Sink Backwash.
  • New Dispensary Cabinetry, Existing Stone with Color Rack

The mirrors were also framed with silver wallpaper. It gives the space a sense of height and makes the station feel more private.

Stations Before And After

Used the existing mirrors; framed them with wallpaper trim, added new chairs and station cabinets.

Then And Now

Back in the 80s, the staff that attended the IBSNY show were photographed and featured in a magazine story about the New York show.

This is the image from that story, taken so long ago.


We just finished up with the IBSNY show now in 2016 and we’ve taken another staff photo to celebrate our enduring presence in the salon industry.

Our logo has changed from the early days, but the faces are still familiar.

Salon Interiors has built an amazing family within the beauty industry and we are looking forward to continuing our tradition of setting higher standards and bringing fresh ideas to salon and commercial cabinet design for years to come.

You can watch a walk around video of our booth at the IBSNY 2016 show on YouTube. We got to meet some really great people and display some of our latest offerings in salon furniture and equipment.
