Whether opening a new salon or remodeling, you want the best quality salon equipment you can afford. There are lots of brands which claim to be high-quality or the best brand, but they are not. Be aware of poorly made, low quality, imported Asian equipment and furniture, which offer a very limited warranty if any. While it may be affordable, Asian imported equipment will not last. You should buy American made high quality equipment from well established manufactures who offer superior warranties. Follow these simple tips to make sure your buying the right equipment.

A Quality Salon Chair

Clients are typically seated the entire time they are at your salon, making chair selection a critical factor. Comfort is a major concern when choosing salon equipment, but not the only one. Whether you’re looking at reception seating, styling chairs, or shampoo chairs, there are several things keep things to keep in mind. First you want to look for a chair with superior-quality fabric that is a stain resistant vinyl with heavy-weight, woven fabric backing to prevent rips and tears during use. High-quality chairs are constructed of multi-density foam to ensure comfort and also come with long lasting warranties. Lastly, quality styling chairs have a pump that provides an eight-inch lift and an adjustable pump bail for adjusting the height while standing from almost anywhere around the chair.

Washing Area

The washing area is often the first service many clients experience. You want this experience to be positive and comfortable for both the operator and client. When selecting equipment for the washing area such as shampoo chairs, backwash units, and shampoo bowls, consider materials that withstand water to prevent structural damage. The neck of the bowl should hug your client’s neck to prevent water leaking from the bowl down your clients back. Cast iron bowls offer the most durable finish available and can be re-enameled to hide the long-term wear and tear on your shampoo stations.

The Right Cabinetry

A pretty cabinet won’t necessarily meet your needs for function and efficiency. While some brands call themselves high-quality, they actually cut corners in construction which could spell disaster for any salon owner. Quality styling stations and other salon cabinetry should have PVC edge banding that is applied with a glue to resist water damage, chipping and denting. Water-resistant glue should be used throughout construction along with heavy-duty particle board that is thermofused to prevent warping. Make sure all drawers come with full-extension slides for total drawer access. Most importantly, the manufacturer should offer a warranty.

Now that you are armed with some tips on what to look for in quality salon equipment you are ready to make a purchase, but do you know where to buy? Look for an authorized salon equipment distributor who not only sells the best brands of high-quality furniture, but can also point out the differences between cheaply made imported and American made high- quality goods.
