I started my career as a beautician at seven when I opened my own bedroom salon. I painted nails, braided hair, and I even applied makeup like a pro. You can say that I have always had an interest in beauty, and I naturally attended beauty school immediately after I graduated high school. When the time came to find a job, I started my own salon with a small loan from my mother. I wanted my salon to be special, so I worked with clients to teach them what I knew about hair care techniques. Throughout the years, I have learned that most people know very little about their hair. They believe that the hair needs to be washed every day and they also think that conditioner is enough to treat dry locks. I started this blog so I could educate the public on a larger scale about hair care.
If you are thinking about starting an in-home salon, salon equipment is your first big hurdle. While you may be able to get away with the bare minimum, your clients are more likely to refer you if they have a comfortable and luxurious experience. Here are a few things you could do to make your in-home salon more comfortable for them.
The Chair Matters
The chair where your client will be sitting is extremely important. Not only will they potentially be spending a few hours there, but the type of chair you use will also determine how well the hair cut goes. If you are shorter or taller than the average beautician, you will need to make sure that the chair can either rise or fall so that you can have your client in the right place. Choosing a chair that does not change heights can save you money, but may ultimately make cutting hair difficult.
For many people, the wash that they get in the salon is their favorite part of the experience. You will want to make sure that you are giving them more of a wash than just having them lean their head over your sink. There are many chairs that you can use that lean back into a sink with a neck rest, allowing your client to really relax while you wash their hair with sweet-smelling shampoo. A good neck rest also makes sure that your client does not get water all down their back. These are just a few things to think about when picking what kind of washing station you will put in.
It may not be included in salon equipment, but you may want to think about a way to give your client a few extra amenities. For example, what if you got a little fridge that you kept water in only for your clients? A small thing like this could actually make them feel like you really care about their comfort.
The vanity upfront is what your client will be staring at during their appointment. You should get something that makes the space looks big, has room for some storage, and most importantly, has a nice big mirror. A well-lit mirror can also help your client to feel like they are getting the celebrity treatment.
You do not have to break the bank to give your clients a high-quality salon experience. Thoughtful choices of salon equipment can make a big difference. Contact a salon equipment supplier for more information.Share
