About Used Salon Equipment
As any small business owner can tell you, it is a tough economy out there, and you have to cut costs wherever you can to get a new business off the ground. Fortunately, there is no need to splurge on completely new equipment for your beauty salon, since you can get started with used salon equipment instead. Consider the vibe of the salon when searching for the right fittings and furniture. If you want to create a polished, professional atmosphere, search for ultra-modern furniture, such as black cabinets with chrome hardware, asymmetrical mirrors, and sleek silver chairs. If you are going for a cozy look, consider getting retro used beauty salon furniture. Look for oversize colorful chairs and porcelain sinks. Do not forget smaller items such as anti-fatigue mats, coat racks, magazine stands, and reception furniture. You could search local auctions and consignment stores for the right used salon equipment, but the largest inventory is on eBay. Check each item for scratches in the metal or rips in the upholstery. Down the road, when you are turning a profit rather than paying off your initial investment, you can thank yourself for your patience in waiting for new furniture.
