What to consider when purchasing hair salon equipment and beauty supplies

The Process consider when buying hair salon equipment

There are some necessary things to remember to purchase when getting hair salon equipment. Opening a salon can be as exciting as it is stressful.There is so much to do and consider. Equipment can be acquired online, from catalogs or trade shows. The great thing about a show is that you get to test it and see how it feels.

Set up

The waiting area is part of the reception area. It is the right place to have to shelve to sell the products used in the salon or other products that are secondary. The desk should convey professionalism and efficiency. A chair, computer, register, and phone system will also be needed for the area.

 Shampoo area

The right chairs that recline and meet the sinks are essential. The chairs may be padded for additional comfort. These both will need to be at the right height to protect the backs of shampooers.


Next will be the area for hooded dryers. Here is where there should be plenty of magazines or television to watch. The dryers are available in a wide price range. The more stylish and comfortable they are the more they cost.

Adjustable chair

2An excellent styling chair will ensure comfort. This is where a customer spends most of their time in the salon. It is also where the operator spends their most time working. The chair must be adjustable whether with a hydraulic or motorized base. A trolley may be best because of the ease of moving them. They come with appliance holders. This allows a stylist to go from one station to another if necessary. They are also easy to keep clean.

Massage chairs

Pedicures and manicures will need their stations. The station for pedicures is best as an all in one unit. These will have massage chairs attached to the foot basin with rests. The customer will have their back rubbed right along with their feet and calves.

Purchasing hair salon equipment is an expensive task.It cuts deeply into capital. Used equipment may be a consideration to save on costs. Some companies do offer leasing programs. The payments would ideally come from the profits. At the end of the leasing term, you become the owner of all the equipment.

3If you don’t like to hop from one store to another, you can alternatively go on the internet. There are many online stores offering great bargains for salon equipment and some even offer free shipping or affordable package deals. It is one of the easier and cheaper ways to get the equipment you need without wasting too much time or energy going around. You can also search for wholesale hardware prices that are also great bargains.
