Some beauty salon owners create their salons from scratch. Some beauty salon owners buy salons that already exist and then simply move in and opt to customise it over time. Regardless of which scenario applies to you, it’s important to consider the fact that if your salon furniture and décor is considered out-dated, you could be losing ground competitively in your area.
Investing in new salon equipment could be very advantageous and could help you attract new customers as well as keep them coming back. The way a salon looks does make an impact on customers. How comfortable of an experience they have in the barber chair and /or at the washing basin will influence whether or not they return. Doing an upgrade to your equipment and décor, particularly if you haven’t done one in some time (or ever) could revitalise your business and help you grow it.
Nervous About Investing in Salon Equipment?
Salon equipment can be expensive, yes, but it is an investment that can bring about a great return on that investment. If you’ve done your own salon from ground zero but it’s been several years and / or your equipment purchase reflected what you could afford at the time and you chose cheap salon equipment, it might be time to look at your options for an upgrade. If old equipment is still useable, you could even sell it and put the money earned toward upgrading to new equipment. You may also be able to minimise expenditure by financing or leasing salon equipment instead of buying.
Upgrading your hairdressing equipment could upgrade your status in your neighbourhood.
You may be interested in doing a complete overhaul with new salon furniture and new beauty supplies at each workstation. Or, you could be considering upgrading a few areas, such as your salon workstations only. Maybe you’ll want to upgrade a bit here and there over time, as your business grows.
There are many options, including different types of workstations, such as for hair, nails, pedicures, hair washing, and so on. If you’re not ready to upgrade the barber chairs, perhaps you’ll want to upgrade the reception area since that’s where people get their first impression.
Shopping Around to Upgrade Your Hairdressing Equipment and Decor
It’s wise to shop around for the best price, regardless of whether you’re doing a minor upgrade or a major overhaul to your salon’s design. You can find salon furniture supplies companies that re-sell a number of brands. You can also deal with salon equipment for sale from wholesalers who eliminate that middle man and ship your equipment directly to you. (Tip: We sell wholesale and guarantee our pricing.

Beyond looking at price, consider brand name and warranty, too. The right products at the right pricing will help you feel good about investing in your business.
