If you’re thinking about changing some of the furniture in your salon, then perhaps you know exactly what you need, the style and colours you want. If you’re not sure what will make a difference, or what you need, then perhaps these ideas will help you decide.
1. The reception area will be the fist impression your customers get, so you’ll want to make sure your reception chairs are comfortable and welcoming for your customers.
2. If you want to make a more luxurious impression, then why not consider having reception sofas rather than chairs? You customers will love the luxury of a good quality sofa while they are waiting to have their hair cut.
3. You might want to choose modern styles for your hairdressing chairs. Perhaps you’re a cutting edge attracting young professional clients, and you want your furniture, and chairs to reflect this.
4. Alternatively, you might be a more traditional type of hairdressers, and not want to alienate any of your loyal clients by choosing chairs that are very different from what you have now.
5. If you’re aiming your salon at male clients, then you’ll want to make sure that the colours and styles of furniture look masculine and are likely to attract men who are more likely to want a quick efficient hair cut, rather than a lengthy gossip and lots of cups of coffee.
6. You might need barbers chairs if you’re also offering men’s grooming as well as hair cuts. Your male clients are sure to love the experience of relaxing in a luxurious leather chair whilst your staff work their styling magic.
7. If you’re a ladies’ salon, then you’ll want to appeal to women and make your hairdressers friendly and inviting, and have feminine colours and styles to encourage your customers to relax and enjoy having their hair cut and then being pampered by your beautician or nail technician.
8. You might want your staff to have styling stools so that they don’t have to spend all day standing up. Why not see if a couple of wheeled stools or chairs could make your stylists more efficient?
9. You’ll definitely need receptionist chairs, so that the person who answers the phone or makes new appointments in person is comfortable. They’re much less likely to make mistakes, and can also remind your customers of the additional hair products and accessories that you sell.
10. If you have a staff area, then you’ll want to make sure that you can properly relax, and enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of the salon. Why not make sure that you have the right chairs and tables so that you relax during lunch hours or breaks.
Now you know what sort of salon furniture you might need, perhaps now is time to see whether you need new hairdressing chairs in your salon.
