Before You Don Your Spa Uniform, You’ll Need These Items
When you’re starting up your own salon, there is some standard equipment you will need before you can open your doors. The materials and equipment described below comprise the bulk of the supporting tools and technology you’ll need in order to provide outstanding service to your clientele. Before you put on your spa uniform, you will need to pick up these items.
Chairs, mirrors, and stations
When you are considering the layout of your salon, the first thing you need to give thought to are the stations. You’ll need to have a good idea of how many you want to install, and just how sophisticated you want those stations to be. Then you’ll need to figure out which kind of chairs and mirrors will work best at those stations. Consider that your customers will be putting on salon capes when choosing the size of the chairs. You don’t want them dragging on the ground or tripping anyone. It may be to your advantage to consider purchasing used stations, chairs, and mirrors from a salon which has recently closed. This can save you a chunk of change.
You may think that hooded dryers have gone out of style, but they can still be very effective. You can have one client sitting under a hooded dryer while you’re providing service to another client. These types of dryers are also great for implementing hairstyles which require setting, and for those which require coloring.
You’ll definitely need to set up manicure stations if you intend to provide fingernail service to your clients. It’s a very great service to offer, and is often one that is desired by the same customers who are looking for hairdo services. In the same vein, you will probably need to set up at least a couple racks of nail polish, so that you can make the idea of nail service very appealing to your clients. You will probably also want to acquire some drying lamps, so your customers can quickly dry their fingernails without any kind of smudging. Customers appreciate these drying lamp stations, because they can be very soothing and relaxing, and can enhance the total salon experience. Keep in mind that just because you offer this service, you don’t have to do it yourself. You can don your hairstylist uniform while another person offers nail services.
You can count on needing about one shampoo bowl for every three hairstylists employed at your salon. Whichever type of bowls you purchase, you should make sure they work well with your chairs, and can easily be adapted for the different types of clients you have. You may also want to consider installing rubber lips which fit over your shampoo bowls to minimize the neck cramp that your clients may feel.
