Clutter and disorganisation can downgrade the overall look and feel of a top notch salon. Not only can clutter make your clients uncomfortable, but if a potential walk in client sees a huge mess and disorganised stylists, they’re less likely to stick around and book an appointment.
Your salon needs intelligent storage solutions, which means that the items you use for storage can also double for other uses. Using storage solutions for more than just storing beauty supplies and equipment allows your stylists to multitask while keeping the salon clean and tidy.
Simple Storage Solutions with Trolleys
A hair salon trolley is the simplest form of storage. Trolleys are portable and allow a stylist to move the necessary supplies with them around the salon. Most salons will separate their trolleys based on the service provided. For example, a few trolleys are designated for colouring services. This way colouring chemicals don’t accidentally spill onto blow-dryers or hair straightness causing damage.
A stylist may even have his or her own personal trolley to store all of their own beauty supplies. Trolleys have drawers and containers on the sides for combs, pins, and other smaller supplies. They also have circular holders for curling irons, straighteners, and blow dryers. By utilising a trolley, a stylist avoids have a drawer full of tangled wires and dusty supplies and their workstation stays clean and organised.
Cabinetry and Shelving Solutions
Every salon needs a certain amount of cabinets and shelving. Cabinets are ideal over the wash basins because it’s more sanitary to keep towels and face cloths in a closed cabinet. If your salon has more than one area where towels and face cloths will be needed for services, make sure you have at least one cabinet in each area to make it easy for stylists to reach the towels without having to delay service.
Shelving solutions are perfect for displaying products or organising extra styling products. You can find shelves that also have small enclosed shelves underneath, making them ideal for holding items that shouldn’t be left out in the open. Shelves are available in wood, plastic, or glass, and come in a variety of colours.
Waiting Area Storage
The waiting area can quickly become an eyesore. If you cater to children, you may have to figure out what to do with toys or books that you provide. Portable tiered plastic storage containers are ideal because they come in a variety of styles and colours, with some even replicating the look of wood. You can store toys and books in these bins and keep magazines on the walls in plastic or wood magazine holders.
With the right storage solutions, your salon can look clean and organised all the time. Just remember that you may have to check up on the waiting area throughout the day since clients don’t tend to pick up after themselves.
