Getting started with a new nail salon or even re-fitting an existing salon can seem like an intimidating task. There are so many details, large and small to see to in the process. It can get overwhelming really fast if you aren’t careful. That’s why it’s a good idea to take a step back and figuring out what equipment you really need in order to get started and what equipment you can live without—at least for a little while. Doing this will help you save not only time, but also money that you can reinvest into your business as it grows.
Beauty Salon Equipment for Nails
It’s important to start with the bulkier buys first. These are the things that are going to take the biggest chunk of change out of your start-up capital but are necessary for running your nail salon business. It doesn’t matter if you’re scouring the shops for nail supplies. Perth salons, Melbourne salons, and even Gold Coast salons all require a comfortable place for patrons to sit in order to get the business in the door. It doesn’t matter how many shades of colour you offer or how talented your hands are at creating nail art if you don’t have the right furniture to do the job; no one is going to grace your salon doors.
These tables are where the real magic happens. This is where you transform hands, ten fingers at a time, into works of art. At least the fingernails of these hands become works of art. But, there are a few things you should keep in mind when selecting these tables.
First of all, the height needs to be one that is comfortable for you to bend over, hour after hour, each day as you work as well as for the paying customer who makes your business possible. Second, it must be able to withstand nearly constant use. Finally, it needs to have an adequate surface area for your hands, your patrons’ hands, and the necessary equipment to operate in harmony.
There are several different types of pedicure chairs on the market today. You’re going to have to explore your options and determine which is a better fit for the type of nail salon you’re running and the amount of space you have available for furniture inside your salon.
Some pedicure chairs have a much longer footprint, if you’ll pardon the pun, than others. The final deciding factor, however, needs to be functionality. Which chair best serves the needs of the business within the constraints of the physical and fiscal space you have available?
The great news is that you don’t have to rush out and purchase every bit of nail salon equipment for sale from the very beginning. Start small and then work your way up. Offer more options and creature comforts to your customers as your business grows and don’t forget that you can save quite a bit of money by ordering your salon supplies online.
