The following is a selection of testimonials from both recent and long standing clients.
"I recently opened a new Aveda Salon in Gibraltar. I was really struggling to find suppliers and I came across Albert's website purely by chance. As soon as I spoke to Albert I knew he was the right person to work with.
He helped with the design and also sourcing the salon equipment, even designed a mirror to my specific requirements.
Albert put me in touch with PAHI in Barcelona and arranged a visit to the factory for me. Once I made my choices Albert handled everything for me including organising the export of the furniture to Gibraltar.
There was nothing I asked that was too much trouble for him. He was always available to talk things over with and indeed offered me some very good advice along the way.
It was a pleasure to work with Albert and I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking for design and furniture advice.
Hope to do business again"
"Albert provided really valuable advice and an experienced guiding hand throughout the design and shop fitting phases of the new Melissa Timperley salon development.
He is always very accessible and responsive – a ‘must’ when you need to take decisions quickly."
"Albert Ewan was recommended to us by another local salon. We're short on suppliers of this nature in the Channel Islands so we were very pleased for the recommendation.
Albert provided an excellent service, giving us detailed information about the products he could provide and always with great efficiency.
We were delighted to receive our salon furniture and fittings, all of a fantastic quality and finish. Everything fitted beautifully into place and our clients love the look of our new salon!"
Beau & Lacquer, Guernsey
"When we asked for a recommendation for a salon designer for our latest concept salon in the UK, our Italian furniture partners immediately said AED.
They had a relationship going back many, many years. The turnaround and the salon speaks for itself. We hope to open many more in the coming years. And AED clearly understands our ethos."
Pietro Molinari- Export Director- Philip Martin Italy

I can not recommend highly enough the service Albert can provide."
Guy Morton, Sandra's
"I was opening my first hair salon & wanted it to be perfect. My partner kept saying he knew a guy that did furniture, but I was adamant that I wanted it unique & contemporary. After a few weeks of searching through rubbish websites, an advert popped up at the side for Albert. Instantly I knew he was the man for me. I was initially worried if I could afford him but after speaking to him he reassured me that he designed the layout complimentary if I spent xyz. Albert was very patient with me as I analysed every detail, even returned my phone calls at 10pm as I was still trying to work during the day and get the baby to bed. This meant I had to plan in the evening & Albert sent over various layouts to consider.
We decided to go with PAHI as I loved the colour pallets and style of chairs. I couldn't decide on the final look so Albert suggested I went to the showroom in Barcelona. We flew over for 2 days and Gerard picked us up and we went to the showroom. We sat on every piece of furniture until we decided the style and colour. I went away with samples and made my final decision at home with help of Albert. Furniture came on time beautifully packed and easily to assemble.
I am so happy with my salon, I walk in every day & love it! Thanks for all your support Albert."
Paul Mc Hugh, Nine Zero Glasgow
"We had used AED for some bespoke furniture a few years ago and were delighted with the result so choosing someone to help us with our recent refurbishment was easy!
The salon has a high ceiling and metal beams and supports and utilising Alberts design expertise, we decided to go for a more contemporary urban chic look with an industrial twist. We chose made to measure wallpaper from Textura, sections from Pahi, and some industrial style feature lights.
From design, planning & project management through to choosing the right fixtures, fittings and furniture Albert and his team were pure professionals and there just when we needed them. The end result is a unique space that's been well admired by our clients, the layout that was created provides more space to work and a light, airy relaxed and welcoming place to visit.
Thanks Albert and team we couldn't have asked for more!."
"Taking on a project refurbishing 12,000 sq feet was never going to be an easy task. Being a great believer in fate I sent it up to the universe to attract the perfect designer. One click later on Google and I found the man for the job in Albert Ewan Design.
What could have taken forever seemed to fly by with every detail taken care of with meticulous attention. I believe I work all hours, however, even Albert surprised me with his ability to always answer questions and emails with a sound knowledge backed up with a vast amount of years of industry experience.
We have finished stage one of the project which includes an incredible hair salon, juice bar, gym, changing rooms, pedi spa and nails area with an amazing reception retail area. The thought process and eye for detail has made the results absolutely spot on.
In a creative world sometimes it's hard to put across what you are looking to achieve, however Albert made the whole process seamless which thankfully kept us all sane!
All of the directors at aUK Grantham, cannot praise Albert Ewan Design enough from project plan, layout to design and furniture manufacture you have everything in one company - genuine guy too which is a massive bonus"
Chris Wade, Director, aUK Grantham
"I never believed I would find a designer who would help me upgrade my small barbers salon and with my tight budget. Finding Albert Ewan Design online and reading such good reviews, I pessimistically made contact. However, from the first moment of talking to Albert I knew all would be good.
He worked confidently and tirelessly to respect my budget whilst providing and advising a first class service. I still cannot believe the transformation of my salon and still, neither can my clients!
Albert has designed and provided me with a smart, calm and warm inviting space in which to work and for my clients to relax in during their haircuts.
The quality of the new furniture, mirrors and sinks are second to none.
Albert worked at producing an individual service that completely suited my requirements. Never worried how many times I called with another query, changing details or having a panicky moment. He patiently provided plans and re-plans until I was ready and satisfied with the new look salon.
He has rectified my lighting, made my small salon look bigger and advised me on the flooring and wall colours.
I cannot recommend him enough. I have a salon I only once dreamed of. The refit went smoothly and on time.
All in all, truly brilliant. I still go into my salon everyday and go, "Wow!" Albert, you're a star! Thank you."
Sue Brady. Barbers Point, Carnaby, London
"We wanted a beautiful salon and we got one, from the standard furniture to
the custom items it was perfect first time around.
I have worked in construction for 25 years and I could not have produced the
results we got without him - he seriously knows his way around a hair salon.
He arrives when he says he is going to and he is super fast in replying to
emails and questions, and I sent a few.
His drawings were spot on and the 3D drawings gave a good taste of what was to
On budget and on time and we would use him again in a heart beat.
Thank you Albert"

"From the outset, AED worked with me to interpret my vision into practical solutions.
The plans of my salon were put into visuals and Albert worked with me and my builder/shopfitter to ensure that everyone was aware of what the end result should look like.
AED then worked with me to source and deliver the salon furniture on schedule, and Albert personally helped to ensure that the fitting was done to the required manufacturers standard.
The after-sales service has been superb, and any teething issues have always been resolved to my satisfaction...with AED you get the impression that you are a valued customer and that is how Evolve treat their clients !"
"We first contacted Albert Ewan design around January 2010 regarding a new Salon project which we were about to undertake in Auchterarder Perthshire. From our initial conversation to the delivery of a fabulous salon in September 2010 Albert has been exceptional in every way.
Albert has a wealth of knowledge and experience in creating and refurbishing properties in the Hair Industry and made our task of setting up Deja Hair and Beauty somewhat less stressful.
Not only is Albert very knowledgeable, he is extremely approachable, welcomes the opinions of others and can easily look outside the box to find a solution.
Throughout our project Albert was always coming up with fresh ideas and inspiration, he would always find the solution to any technical issue or supply of product. On many occasions if we were stumped or unsure we would just contact Albert and from there we coined the phrase ‘Just Ask Albert’
We found our relationship with Albert to be very special and unique in these turbulent times. We will certainly be calling on the services of Albert Ewan Design on all future projects and would have no hesitation in recommending his services to any prospective client."
"Not just salon furniture-it is a whole package. Not least the care and experience."
"We have to say Albert is not new to us. This would be the third salon we have entrusted his skills.
Linda is a highly creative individual, who has definite thoughts of how her environment should look and portray this.
Albert has always created that something really special and seen it through to making it a reality.
We are all professionals but we really enjoy the whole process and seeing what can be created.
Our current look has a real cultured mature feel. It is entirely relevant to today and the special building it is housed in.
Albert liaised with the builders, architects and specialist contractors to get exactly what we needed.
Just can't wait to work with him again."
"We wanted a fresh look with a contemporary feel, standing out from the rest.
The environment we created has proven to be relaxing, clean, spacious and modern. Air conditioning, televisions, comfortable seating and the top range refreshments all add to the customers experience. We aim to provide you with the opportunity to enjoy the pampering you deserve.
In order to achieve the perfect salon we sat down with a great designer with a wealth of experience designing top salons around the country, ...
Albert Ewan drew our ideas in to a 3D drawing to scale with the actual units, chairs and basins we were buying. The excellent service provided by him saw him flying across the UK to ensure the smooth running of deliveries and to check the furniture was to the high standard we required. "
"From the start of our planning process to the day our furniture was delivered, we found Albert to be extremely professional, knowledgeable and flexible. He listens to what you are looking to create, offers sound advice and guidance but is also highly collaborative in ensuring that you end up with the design that you want. His follow up is superb, always available or quick to respond, we have found it a pleasure to work with him and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to other owners looking for a complete salon design service."
