Hi Fellow Geeks

I am currently a Nail technician but I am just about to do an indian head massage course and was planning to get one of the forward facing massage stools....but I have also had quite a lot of clients telling me that they would like me to start eyebrow waxing..ideal for when their top coat is drying (another course !).....but.....

I have very little room in the Hair Salon that I work in which is open plan....so can't do bulky furniture.

Clearly it is unlikely a client will want an IHM when the hair salon is in full flow but I do work late and would offer it after hours as such....however..in order to avoid having too much furniture (limited storage space too I'm afraid) I was thinking of waxing brows whilst clients sat the other way round on the massage stool which would tip them back a bit...do you think this would tip enough for me to wax??

I have considered a portable couch but some of my ladies are quite heavy and not very mobile..uneven floor too (Grade 2 listed building - beautiful...but testing !)...as you can see the odds are a bit stacked against me LOL...any thoughts??...

...I desperately want to expand my treatments for my clients as they are so supportive and loyal and say they would like a one-stop-shop pamper day treatment....hair/wax/massage and nails...

...any ideas would be welcome ..

...thanks team
xx

Hi,

I am also a nail tech in a hair salon. I offer facial waxing and lash tinting too.

I just have a reclining barbers chair and it works brilliantly for me. I've been using it for two years now and never had a problem.

Hope that helps x

I got my chair a couple of years ago. Think it was £150 ish from an online company that I cant remember the name of. If you google barbers chairs loads of different styles come up. I chose a traditional one and removed the foot plate.

I basically have a nail station and I sit on the barbers chair. It then will twist round and recline for waxing clients.

I don't have a screen, I intended to but have never needed it and clients are more than comfortable and relaxed. In fact some have been known to have a little snooze [emoji23]xx
