How to choose the right hairdressing chair?
A visit at the hairdresser’s is some kind of exquisite experience for many people. For them that is the time of relaxation, which is also an opportunity to change their appearance. But to make them feel that way, we need to make sure that they are comfortable during every step of their makeover. Because of that, a good hairdressing chair is one of the priorities while creating our own hair salon. But how to choose the perfect chair? Here are some tips that might be helpful.
When you think about your own salon, you need to have a clear idea of how it will look like. The style you choose determines your decisions concerning furniture, colour of the walls and decorations. And of course the hairdressing chair should also go with other elements of such design. The producers of that kind of necessary equipment offer us a large number of different models, so it shouldn’t be hard to find something suitable for our salon’s style.
Besides the difference in design, we can divide hairdressing chairs into two groups: those with hydraulic pumps and those with gas pumps. But which one should you choose?
Chairs with gas pumps are generally much cheaper, and that is the reasons why they are very popular among hair salon’s owners. However, they have a very serious flaw. If we want to adjust their height to our needs, we have to ask clients to get off the chair. And as you may imagine, this doesn’t look professional.
That is why, those hairdressers who want to be treated seriously, decide to buy chairs with hydraulic pumps, that can be adjusted even with a client sitting on it. They are more expensive, but at the end it turns out to be the profitable investment.
Of course, as in any case of buying the furniture to the hair salon, we should make sure that the chair is of the highest quality. Don’t try to save money on such important equipment which is necessary in hairdressing salon. It is worth spending more money on the really good furniture, made by a reputable company, as we get the guarantee that it will be comfortable both for the client and the hairdresser.
As a matter of fact, those tips can also be applied to other hair salon furniture, such as sofas or armchairs in the waiting room. They should also match the style of the whole place and what is the most important, they have to be comfortable, so the clients would enjoy the time at the hairdresser’s from the very beginning. That way we will show them that we are professionals who takes care of every aspect of our service.
