Products and Services
The Chop Shop was developed to identify and benefit from the timeless style and spirit of the vintage rock 'n' roll culture. With an actual hot rod front end for a front desk at each location and red tool boxes for the hairstylist stations, it is like stepping into an actual 1950's garage. The colour scheme is simple, bright primary reds and yellows, with classic pin-ups designs between the stations to adorn the walls. Every hair station is customized with hand painted hot rod flames, giving an extra punch of bright colours. With a timeless and classic look, the shop will never have to be renovated to accommodate constantly changing trends, and will always have appeal to both the young and old.
