Salon Stations, Chairs, Mirrors
A great place to start would be the stations. Think of about the equipment you worked on, or interview other stylist whom you trust get their opinion of what chairs, stations and mirrors worked best for them. Remember to think about your customer and buy equipment that is both functional and comfortable.
Make sure the bowls and chairs you purchase complement each other. Depending on the nature of your business a shampoo bed may be a better idea. There will be a variety of customers therefore take adaptability into strong consideration. To help reduce the dreaded neck cramp many equipment supplies sell rubber lips that can be fitted over shampoo bowls.
Hood dryers can be a huge help to your business. One customer can be under the dryer giving you the opportunity to start your next customer. Don’t just buy any dryer also think about the functionality within your beauty business. A dryer with adjustable heat is an excellent choice. You will be doing many different types of hair and sizes, so make sure you buy a dryer that can accommodate many sizes. Does the dryer have height adjustment? You will have a variety of customers and they are all not the same height. If you buy dryers with no height adjustment, make sure you have adjustable chairs. Will you need something portable or stationary? Lastly, the interior of the dryer itself is important. Will the interior have an anti-staining coat?
