A Curvy Tale

In the heart of Gulshan, the Kaya Beauty Studio stands as a testament to the vision of its owners, Nusrat Farzana Shameem and Fahmina Huq, who have been friends since their student days. This salon is not just a business venture; it’s a celebration of female empowerment, friendship, and the artistry of design. Nusrat and Fahmina, along with their architect Raiana Sharif, embarked on a journey to create a unique space that resonates with the essence of femininity. The name Kaya was carefully chosen, representing the body and beauty of women across languages, exuding a powerful feminine energy.

The interior of Kaya is a commendable one, carefully curated to reflect the irregular yet bold, fluid yet grounding nature of feminine energy. Every material within the salon is deliberately curved, avoiding sharp edges, and most are locally sourced or handmade, adding a touch of authenticity to the space. The earthy warm tones that dominate the color palette create a soothing atmosphere, designed to relax both the body and mind of the clients. The effort invested in ensuring comfort extends to the well-trained and experienced staff, offering specialized services such as hot oil massages, facials, hair coloring, and significant spa treatments.

The studio is designed with an open concept for common areas like hairstyling, reception, and refreshment areas, creating a visually free-flowing space. Private zones such as the spa, massage rooms, and lash bar provide a sense of privacy and relaxation, each with its acoustic system to enhance the experience. Manicure-Pedicure, hair spa, color all the services you want from the tip to toe are available. 

The visual representation of feminine energy is manifested in the abstract adaptations of the female body that adorn the walls. Local artists contributed to the unique wall art around the refreshment area, capturing the fluid aspect of feminine energy. The lighting design is tailored to the function of each area, ranging from bright and vibrant in the reception area to dim and candlelit in the spa and massage rooms. Custom-designed chandeliers, inspired by fluidity and curves, add an extra layer of sophistication to the space. The intentional sense of continuity within Kaya reflects the vision of the design team.

Shapes, art, and intricate details come together to create a holistic experience, making the entire space feel like a single, evolving portrait.

The feminine flair of kaya seemed to speak for itself, with the design naturally embodying the irregular and nurturing qualities associated with femininity. Space Esse expresses gratitude for its journey. The philosophy of growing a little every day and embracing challenges for knowledge is evident in their strategy. Looking ahead, the goal is to integrate technology for operational efficiency.

Kaya Beauty Studio is more than just a salon—it’s a harmonious blend of friendship, ambition, and design artistry. The space captures the essence of femininity, offering clients an experience that goes beyond the traditional beauty salon visit. From the deliberate design choices to the personal touches, Kaya stands as a testament to the power of vision, perseverance, and the celebration of beauty in all its forms.
