If you’re looking for the next thing on your travel bucket list, Amazon is set to open its very first hair salon in London and according to the tech company, the salon will be located on Brushfield Street in Spitalfields…
BUT – unlike most salons, the 1,500 square foot space will offer augmented reality hair consultations and feature point-and-learn technology, ‘for customers to come and experience some of the best technology, hair care products and stylists in the industry,’ Amazon’s UK Country Manager John Boumphrey said.
‘We want this unique venue to bring us one step closer to customers, and it will be a place where we can collaborate with the industry and test new technologies.’, he added.
With this technology, customers can actually choose to virtually try on different hair colours before they make any final decision. Meanwhile, Amazon employees will be the first ones to test out the service.
The company concluded, ‘This will be an experiential venue where we showcase new products and technology, and there are no current plans to open any other Amazon Salon locations’.
