Where to Look for Salon Equipment

When you decide to start your own salon, you are likely very excited about what the future will bring.  Once you start to get down to business and look up more details on what it will take, it might be harder than you think to get things up and running.  

One of the first things you will do is secure a location.  After that, however, you have to get into the little details including buying salon equipment.  There are many places you can look in order to find your equipment. 

Here are just a few ideas...

-Trade Shows
If you hear about a salon trade show anywhere nearby where you live, you should jump at the chance to attend.  Not only can you possibly get some great deals on salon items that you may not find anywhere else, but you also get to take a look at the equipment in person so you can see how it works before you make the final purchase.  You can also connect with other salon owners in order to seek advice on which pieces of equipment are the best for what you want to do.

-Warehouse and Showroom
We have a warehouse and a showroom here in St Louis where you can also get a hands on experience with the equipment before you purchase it.  You can walk the warehouse floors and take a look at the items and the showroom has lots to offer.  You have the benefit of being able to see everything in front of you!

-Online at

One of the best places to search for good deals and prices once you know what you want is online.  You can quickly compare prices and details on any piece of equipment within a matter of a few minutes and a few clicks.  The prices are often lower to start because the online stores have lower overhead prices themselves.  Look at various reviews on equipment and do your best to judge what you can afford and what will work best for your salon.

How to Buy the Best Salon Equipment
If you want to open a salon, you know you have a lot on your plate.  You will have to invest quite a bit of time and money into the business and you will need somewhere to house your salon.  Once you have a prime location, you will then need to outfit the salon with all of the best equipment. 

You want to pull customers in to your quality salon, but you also do not want to break your budget before you even open. 

Here are a few basic tips to starting:

First, you will want to figure out what type of salon you want to have available for your customers.  Are you looking to open a high-end salon where customers will feel pampered and indulged?  Or are you looking to have a family atmosphere where customers would bring their children along with them to their treatments?  The type of salon you want to have will make a big impact on the type of equipment you will want to buy. 

Second, consider into the basics first and expand from there.  You know you will need chairs, hair dryers, washbasins, supply carts, mirrors and other such items.  Buy these things first and then get some of the other items you might want as your business starts to grow and expand.
Third, come into our St. Louis showroom and look, see, and touch the products while one our our salon design specialists listen intently to your wants, needs, and desire ~ and guide you to success.
