Inside SoMa’s Code Salon

Movable stations and mirrors allow the salon to shift its interiors to accommodate classes and events.

In the shampoo rooms, bench-like beds instead of chairs make for a comfortable angle during shampooing.

Another unique design touch in the light-filled salon.

Curious about Code, the latest salon to open South of Market? Feast your eyes on a few juicy shots of the oh-so-SoMa interiors, which are done up with an industrial-meets-chic attitude that fits seamlessly into surrounding neighborhood.

During our tour of the space last week, the newly-opened beauty destination showed itself to be both surprisingly spacious, with high ceilings and expansive windows letting in a serious amount of natural light, and space-conscious, with movable mirrors and stylist stations designed to give way for events and classes and a separate shampoo room created to offer clients respite from the hustle and bustle of the main floor. While a great deal of attention was obviously given to the salon’s design, we found it to still be an approachable salon with an outgoing, highly knowledgeable team headed up by Founder Cheryl Snodgrass and Master Stylist Louise Frost.

The full Aveda product line makes it an ideal place for anyone who can’t get enough of the Shampure scent (ourselves included).
