When selecting barber chairs, you want the best. After all, your client is coming to you of skilled service and a barber chair helps give them confidence in your cutting ability. Therefore, you need a sturdy and reliable chair that not only looks the part but does the job too!
There are a number of factors to consider when making the purchase. It's a big investment to make, so to ensure you buy the right chair for your shop, carefully consider these few things.
Measure Your Space
Looking at photos of a chair online make it hard to really picture it in your space. Sometimes you assume you have more space than you actually do, so consider measuring it out on the floor first. Use some tape to mark out the measurements so you can work things like the spacing out and how many you can reasonably fit in the space.
Appeal To Your Audience
Creating a brand often means you need to find a theme for your shop. Some go for more of a traditional barbershop with the red, white and blue, even using red waiting lounges too. More of the modern designs are using blacks, while those going for a rustic appeal will move towards the greys. While you can use your chairs as a feature piece, make sure the overall look works. Also, ensure the chairs are comfortable!
Finally, one of the most important factors is comfort. Ensure you pick chairs with lots of padding as the customers can sometimes be sitting for a while. Also, certain chairs and better designed to carry out shaving services, with the ability to adjust headrests. Consider your clientele and their needs overall, to ensure customer satisfaction.
