Hair Salon Chairs, Bowls, And Equipment Is A Reflection Of You!

When I worked alongside another stylist in a hole in the wall inner city salon, we would always comment on how poor the equipment was. The water pressure was bad in the salon sinks and the chairs were duck taped and barely functional.

Even though this was not my salon (I was not the owner), I felt somewhat responsible for how the salon looked. We did our best to keep it clean and semi presentable but the broken and warn out equipment was always a sore spot when it can to the over all look of the salon.

I recall clients complaining about their shirts being wet after getting a shampoo, and this was not the shampoo girl's fault either. The chairs were too short for the shampoo bowls or the shampoo bowls were to high for the chairs..... I'm really not sure but the work was crappy nonetheless.

It was so nice to visit other salons occasionally when I didn't feel like getting my hair done at work. There was one salon in particular, only a few blocks from where I worked, that had an amazing clientele list and services. Not only did they have beautiful furniture, everything matched and worked as it should. This business had the right idea when they set up their salon!

A salon that is well put together will always out profit, it's competitors. Never low ball yourself with crappy salon equipment. Also, do yourself a favor and buy it wholesale. You'll save money in the long run and will be prepared with the furniture you need to have a full service salon.
