Pedicure Chairs & Stools
After deciding to offer pedicure services in your beauty salon or spa, a pedicure chair is the next logical purchase in delivering the best service to clients. The pedicure chair is of great importance because it sets the comfort level for the rest of the client’s experience at your establishment. A standard, well-padded pedicure chair is fine, however it is an increasing trend for businesses to offer pedicure chairs that have additional amenities. These include self-heating, massaging features; cup holders for beverages, magazine racks, and interchangeable covers for the chairs should you wish to alter the theme or colors of your establishment. When looking to purchase a pedicure chair, look for adjustable height features and footrest as well as a chair that is upholstered in plastic, vinyl, or any other easy-to-clean material. A chair with additional compartments may also prove helpful in storing technicians’ tools & supplies.
Above all, the notion of sanitation and maintenance of clean equipment is essential to deliver the safest, pleasurable pedicure experiences. On that note, purchasing a pipe less as opposed to a piped pedicure chair is most ideal in that it lessens the instances of bacteria collecting in the pipes of the footbaths. As a business owner and more importantly, a provider of health & beauty treatments, it is your responsibility to ensure that your clients enter a safe space for relaxation, free from the risks of infection. In conjunction with the pedicure spa, you will also need to purchase a height-adjustable pedicure stool for the technician’s use in order so that technicians are able to deliver the most exceptional service, comfortably.
Pedicure Spas: To create the most luxurious pedicure experiences, the purchase of a pedicure spa would be most ideal. Pedicure spas tend to be comfortably padded and equipped with massage mechanisms providing your clients with tension relief and relaxation. The chairs in these pedicure spas are attached to a footbath where clients soak their feet prior to receiving their treatments. These footbaths, unlike the standard pedicure chairs, also are equipped with water jets propelling water over the feet as they’re soaked. New pedicure spas can cost from $3,000 to $4,000, but the investment is necessary if you are concerned that your clients receive the most satisfactory experiences.

Pedicure Starter Kit
To perform the pedicure, your technicians will need to make use of pedicure starter kits. The typical kit will include all of the products needed for a pedicure including but not limited to: foot bath solution, skin exfoliant, moisturizer, and a softening mask product. Each item is either involved with the preparation, the duration, or the end of the treatment. Premium products tend to contain essential oils that are both nourishing for the skin and have pleasant fragrances. These products can also be sold at your establishment for clients to take home and add to their personal regimens. Towels are also important in the pedicure treatment for use by your clients and by technicians. Towels help with drying and maintaining cleanliness during the pedicure treatment. Having towels available in an array of sizes should help to reduce loads for laundering.
Pedicure Tool Kit
The tools needed for an excellent pedicure experience include the usual nail care supplies (nail clippers, scissors, cuticle tool, nail filers & buffers) in addition to a pumice stone to soften the areas of the feet where skin tends to toughen. In an effort to reiterate the importance of sanitation, it is advised that you provide disposable filers that clients can take home at the completion of their pedicure treatments. The other tools mentioned above will need constant cleaning & disinfectant application.
