Create a remarkable experience for your customers through an impactful, functional fitout redesign. 

Canopy delivers the highest quality fitouts to beauty salons and barbers across Melbourne. We work with your budget—not the other way around—to deliver creatively designed spaces.  Improve the work environment for your employees so they can better serve your clients with an intelligently designed interior fitout from the experts.

Beauty Industry Fitout Expertise

Our experience across the hair & beauty industry means we'll have no issues meeting the specific requirements for your business. We know what it takes to construct a modern beauty space, and can implement elements such as:

  • Work stations that are built specifically for your employees' needs (unlike work stations that are off the shelf)
  • Aligning the aesthetics of the space with the brand's overall vision
  • Routing building infrastructure to work stations (e.g. plumbing). Hiding wires and piping in plain sight with eye-pleasing design 
  • Floor plans designed to optimise the flow of staff and customers in these typically small spaces
  • Refurbishing older infrastructure (plumbing/HVAC/electrical)
  • Creative solutions to make your salon unforgettable - feature elements that are Instagram worthy

Time-Saving Design

We understand that fitouts can be a lengthy process if not thoroughly planned out. So we do as much heavy lifting as possible before commencing site work. This means:

  • Mocking up design variations quickly within our in-house design team. Applying changes as necessary
  • Where possible, working with local suppliers with shorter lead times on furniture, joinery, and other materials
  • Manufacturing the build off-site as much as physically possible, to reduce time-on-site
  • Clear upfront pricing, with solutions that work within your budget, not outside of it.
  • If you need to apply for a new building or planning permit, we can sort that out for you as well

Design Phase

Our Consultant and Designer meet with you to discuss your business fitout needs and get a clear perspective on your vision. We will discuss your requirements and what challenges you are currently facing with your workspace; whether it’s a size issue, a functionality improvement or simply a workspace update, we will work with you to find the most suitable commercial fitout solution for your requirements and budget.


We prepare proposals based on the brief from the initial meeting where we go through and plan the look and feel of the proposed business fitout project. This is where we get feedback from you so we can proceed to the next step. We offer cost effective solutions for an affordable fitout, so your budget is always top of mind.

Site Commencement

All costs are agreed upon during this stage and the outline of the project and timelines are discussed. We organise all relevant permits to be approved and issue you with a final Construction Set, Fixtures and Finishes Schedule and a Project Schedule.


We carefully source and recruit the right contractors for each fitout construction job. We work with our team of Designers and suppliers to ensure consistency across the look and feel of the project, and conduct weekly site visits with you so you can check in on the fitout and how it is coming together.

At completion, we conduct a handover to you after ensuring you’ve had a thorough walk through of the new space and make sure you are happy with your completed project. We continue to work with you to take care of any additional needs and ensure they are resolved in readiness for your relocation.

Fantastic team. Very professional and talented throughout the whole process. Communication was very important and Canopy delivered. A truly great experience.

Opening our new business premises was a hugely stressful time for us but Karl, Sam and the team were with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have found a more incredible group of people to entrust our vision to. They worked to our budget, their communication throughout the process was exceptional and we were blown away with the final result. Even now, people comment daily on our studio interior and design, which we would never have realised without Canopy Fitouts. We can’t wait to work with them again.

  • How much does a beauty shop fitout cost?

    Depending on your needs and the scale of the project, we work with you to create a fitout for your salon that is in line with your budget. We offer affordable Design and Construction services, and service salons and beauty businesses in Melbourne and across Victoria, regardless of the size of your fitout project. Read our Fitout Costs blog here to find out more. For specific pricing, call us today. 

  • How long does a fitout take?

    This all depends on the size of the fitout project, the complexity of the space and the types of finishes you choose. As a general rule, large projects usually range between 8-10 weeks from initial consultation through to completion, and small projects usually range between 4-6 weeks. 

    We will provide you with a project schedule once initial consultations have been finalised and the fitout project has been scoped by our Designers and Project Managers, so you’ll never come across any surprises.

  • Why should I consider a new fitout for my beauty space?

    There are many reasons to update the interior of your business. Whether you’re looking to improve the functionality of your salon, or want to give the space a fresher more modern look and feel, the end result will leave your patrons feeling welcomed and comfortable in the new environment.

    Previous clients of ours have come to us to report that after their new fitout, their employees are much more productive, happy and engaged in the workplace. This will only benefit your operations and customer experience.

  • What if the project costs more than expected?

    We always will work with your ideal budget, not the other way around. That being said, if you have a design idea that is outside of the scope of your budget, we will do our best to create a more affordable, alternative design solution. Our team prides itself on finding creative, budget-friendly solutions, so don’t hesitate to share that grand idea with us!

  • What National Construction Codes are you able to create fitouts for?

    We are well versed and experienced in meeting the standards for all NCCs. No matter how specific your requirements are, we will meet and exceed the standards set out by the Australian Building Codes Board.

  • What if my space is too small?

    There is no hairstylist, barber, or cosmetics salon too small for a Canopy makeover. With decades of architect and design experience in this industry, we know how to implement creative and space-saving elements to your final fitout. These include (but are not limited to): operable walls, moveable workstations, multifunctional furniture, and more.
