One of the things salon owners must always keep in mind is the safety of using pedicure chairs in their salon. Some Luxspa customers have said that they have had unnecessary accidents when their pedicure bowl was broken due to being made of fragile materials. This article will give salon owners some information about common bowls, and which ones are best to use.
Some things to know when using a pedicure chair bowl:
- You need to make sure your bowl can withstand a lot of weight.
- Bowls should usually have dark colors or tiny textures. This is to prevent the bowl from looking cloudy or dirty, making clients feel uncomfortable when using it.
- The bowl should have durable material and not become opaque or lose color over time. In addition, the bowl also needs to be sturdy and sturdy enough to not be dangerous when used.
- Some clients often have the habit of resting their feet on the side of the bowl. If this part is not delicately designed, the client's legs will easily get numb.
3 types of bowls of pedicure chairs you need to distinguish:
1. Glass pedicure bowl:
This used to be a common pedicure bowl that many pedicure chair companies produced. However, since salon owners expanded other services to attract more customers, things have changed.
The service that often causes the most problems when using a pedicure chair is the hot stone massage. During the massage, the nail technician sometimes accidentally drops the stones into the tub, and since the bowl is made of glass, most of the time something bad happens: the bowl breaks.
If the pedicure bowl is only cracked, the consequences are not too serious. However, if the bowl breaks into small pieces and is more dangerous than causing injury to both the nail technician and the client, the salon can suffer huge losses. Therefore, you must be very careful when using bowls made of this material.
2. Plastic pedicure bowl
Plastic bowls are usually more resistant and durable than glass bowls. However, it is worth noting here that the plastic bowl will no longer retain its transparent color like when it was new and will gradually become dull. This makes your pedicure chair lose its original beauty, and makes the salon space less attractive.
3. Resin bowl
Resin pedicure bowl is currently recommended by many professionals as well as salon owners thanks to its sturdiness and good bearing capacity. Compared to glass bowls physically, resin ones can actually be more heat resistant, have more rigidity, but can still ensure the aesthetics when it is attached to a pedicure chair.
Resin bowls also retain heat very well. This will help the client have a better experience when sitting in the pedicure chair, as well as more satisfied with the service of your salon. This type of material is also very difficult to break, even if broken, it will not break into sharp pieces that cause injury.
Luxspa hopes that the above information will help you know what type of pedicure bowl you need to look for best for your salon. Stay tuned for new articles on Luxspa's blog section!
