You may not realise it now, but if you’re opening a hairdressing salon, one of the most important investments you’re going to make is in the furniture you purchase for your salon. It’s a one-time expense (at the very least a long-term investment) and it’s one that really needs to be built to withstand nearly constant use by people of all shapes and sizes as you go about your salon business.
More importantly, it needs to carry its load safely and comfortably. That’s a tall order for something as simple as a piece of furniture. But frequent replacements can make that piece of furniture cost a lot more than it has to. So, how do you ensure that you’re getting top quality salonfurniture and hairdressingequipment for your salon? These tips are sure to help.
Read Salon Furniture Product Reviews
While some of the reviews are staged and most must be taken with a grain of salt, there are plenty of open and honest product reviews out there that give you the good, the bad and the brutally honest about the salon furniture you’re considering for your salon. You can usually tell the ones that are contrived and less than honest. You can also tell those who were written by people who have very few clues about the operation and functionality of decent hairdressing chairs and shampoo tables.
Reading the reviews will give you a good idea of how well-constructed the furniture is and whether or not it’s truly built to last a long time. You’ll also be able to tell, fairly quickly, which company designs furniture that’s destined to serve as fire kindling before too long too.
Check Out Warranties
Believe it or not, warranties are an excellent clue as to how long certain pieces of salon equipment and are destined to last. Most products today are built to last at least as long as the warranty. While plenty are built to last well beyond the warranty, consider that the minimum expected lifespan of the furniture. Granted, stuff happens and sometimes furniture doesn’t outlast its warranty but for the most part, your hairdressing supplies, equipment and furniture are going to last at least that long—so you have an excellent starting point when calculating whether this is a good investment for you.
Don’t forget the importance of style however, when planning your salon and purchasing your hairdressingtrolleys and other equipment. You are trying to reach out to a certain customer base and they’re going to expect a certain atmosphere in your salon. Give it to them. Let every manicure table and shampoo chair reflect that style—as long as the furniture you buy is furniture that’s designed to last.
