I still remember when I was fresh blood in the hairstyling industry. I thought I could conquer the world with my skills alone. However, once the business started moving, I realized my styling mastery is just one part of the puzzle. The other part is- having the right furniture.
Many people have this epiphany too late in their career and lose considerable business. I’ll just come out and say this- a comfortable, nurturing, and good-looking barbershop-environment is necessary for keeping clients on the hook. That’s why furniture, or in other words, chairs are important!
Don’t ignore the power a simple chair can hold on a parlor visitor.
It’s not just the professionalism that’s at stake here. Not having a quality chair can affect your performance as a stylist too. So, filling your work-station with the best barber chairs is like hitting two birds with one stone.
Anyway, even after the grand realization that traditional chairs just don’t cut it, I made mistakes. So, I’m here to share the tales of the barber chairs that helped me get my business wheels moving.

Why Do You Need Specific Chairs for Customers as a Barber?
The benefits of getting a barber chair are threefold. I call it the three P’s- performance, presentation, and pleasure.
Take one out of the equation, and your salon begins to suffer. You probably won’t notice the damage until the boat’s about to sink. So, how does the three P’s affect your business?
A top-tier barber chair will take your styling game to new heights, ergo performance. If a chair is static, it becomes difficult for the stylist to maneuver around a customer. For time-consuming and intricate haircuts, you have to keep moving back and forth to get the perfect cut.
Also, barber chairs have height-adjustment options. You may think it’s an ignorable feature, but deal with a kid or a short person, and your back pain will tell you what a grave mistake you’ve made.
Next on the list is presentation. A business is only as good as it looks. I know it sounds discouraging, but that’s the truth we all have to accept. My advice is to use this to your advantage instead of becoming a victim of it. The proposition is – fill your work-station with handsome furniture and equipment.
Even if the start-up cost chunks a big slice from your bank, go for it. The reward will be sustainable growth!
Finally, a barber chair brings the final-P or pleasure to the customer. Remember, a happy customer is a regular customer. So, chairs that are designed explicitly for barbershops provide incredible comfort, therefore, putting a smile on the customer’s face as they leave your salon.
A barber chair isn’t just some ornament. It’s a must-have to grow and make a name in the styling industry. It’s not just a haircut that brings people to the salon. I’ve seen many customers coming in to have a relaxing massage or just a simple quick-groom session.
So, it’s your job as a stylist to ensure your customer gets the most value for their buck and one way of doing it is by getting a barber chair.
Some of the Top Barber Chairs I’ve Used
Following the footsteps of the hairstyling world, the realm of barber chairs has also exploded. With tons of options to choose from, the screening process can be both exhausting and intimidating.
Not every purchase I made hit the jackpot. However, the 7 barber chairs I’m going to highlight here are as close to a jackpot as you can get. So, let me show you what each chair had to offer me and what it has in store for you.
If you’ve somewhat put your foot down in the hairstyling world, you probably already know that it’s not only skill-intensive, it’s money-intensive as well.
Hence, when I realized I had to shell out a considerable amount of money for a chair, my expectation-balloon popped. However, the Funnylife Hair Salon Chair saved me some despair by being a true friend in my trying times.
Yes – this barber chair is as affordable as it can get. When I use the word “Affordable,” I’m not saying it lightly. Compared to the standard chair prices, this product is a surefire bargain. However, this chair cannot hold a candle to the big-boy chairs, but it has its moments.
For starters, the chair has a high weight-tolerance. It can take a 350lbs-hit without breaking a sweat. Although the manufacturers believe it can hold up to 400lbs, I didn’t take my chances with it.
I didn’t push the chair to its limits because I don’t think a budget-chair of this nature can handle roughhousing. However, 350lbs is quite reasonable because most people in the US weigh around 200lbs.
One of the primary reasons to get a barber chair is comfort. Comfort for the stylist, but more importantly, comfort for the customers. This chair has foam-padding with a slick leather covering to boot. The former takes care of the customer’s back, while the latter upholds your salon’s impression.
The chair also has height-adjustment, but it is not something to write home about. It’s good- don’t get me wrong, but it’s average. However, once I got my hands on other top-tier barber chairs, I realized the height-adjustment on this chair is a little off. It can accommodate a person of short-to-medium height.
There’s a footrest in the bottom to keep your customer’s feet happy. Again, the footrest is also pretty average. There is no padding between the seat and footrest, which can make it uncomfortable for a person. However, the discomfort only kicks in if someone sits there for a long time.
Also, getting this chair up and running is easy. I did it all by myself, and it took me around 15 minutes to set it up. However, if you’re not handy with tools, I would recommend having a partner around. It becomes a 5-minute cakewalk when someone gives you a hand with the chair’s assembly.
This chair has a lot of nifty features, but it falls short on some fronts too. There is only height-adjustment with no recline options. I couldn’t bend it for a shampoo session or intricate cuts. Also, the footrest can be flimsy and move from its intended place. On top of that, there is no headrest as well.
Although the Funnylife Hair Salon Chair is far from perfect, it’s a snag-worthy deal for the dreamer struggling with money. If I had to go back in time to the moment where I had little cash to spare, I’d buy this chair again in a heartbeat.
Trust me – I wanted and did hang onto budget chairs for a very long time. However, all things must come to an end. Also, I realized if I wanted to move up the ladder as a stylist, I had to bring out the big bucks.
Although walking into the realm of high-end barber chairs was scary, the Dir’s Facial Beauty Bed made the transition a lot easier.
The first days with this chair was something of an eye-opener for me. I didn’t realize a person could perform so admirably while saving time simply because of a chair. The incredible flexibility I got from this product is what made me a believer.
Unlike the Funnylife Hair Salon Chair, the Dir’s Facial Bed had reclining options.
Also, the recline isn’t limited at all. I could go all the way down and turn the chair into a mini-bed if need be. One issue most people face with reclining chairs is stiff movement. However, I had no such hiccups with this chair as it moved seamlessly.
Again, I could control the movement with a remote. One little push and the electro-hydraulic motors would get the chair ready for business.
It might seem like a redundant feature, and to some extent, it is. However, having a remote control take care of the reclining adjustment is a huge quality-of-life improvement.
All the adjustment options of the world can fall short if the chair isn’t comfortable. However, this wasn’t the case with this chair. Thanks to the memory foam inside, sitting or lying becomes an ecstasy.
If you’re none the wiser on memory foams, they disperse human body weight evenly to provide maximum comfort. I noticed more clients coming in for a quick massage after I got this chair.
I could remove and adjust the footrest as well. There was no gap from seat to footrest. The armrest functions similarly. When I fixed the chair at a 180-degree angle, I could take the arms off and turn it into a mini-bed.
The task of removing, adjusting, and even assembling the whole chair is easy. I didn’t need any expert help to get this chair set for business. However, I wish it had more load capacity than the standard 400lbs. While the 400lbs weight-tolerance did the job, I expected a bit more from a high-end chair.
I think the chair is well-rounded and nearly flawless. I say flawless because there aren’t any major drawbacks to mention. Still, as a natural nitpicker, I would say the footrest could’ve been better. The footrest, albeit adjustable, is a little stubborn and doesn’t move as freely as it should.
Another negative is that the chair will take a good chunk out of your wallet. However, the chair is multi-functional. I used a single chair for hairstyling, shampoo sessions, massages, makeups- you name it.
Also, the chair has a commanding look and gives out an aura of reverence. If you have the budget and need for a multi-purpose chair, Dir’s Facial Beauty Bed is worth a shot.
I kept exploring the big-boy leagues to see whether I could find better chairs if I cut back a little. It took me a while, but my efforts panned out. If you want to take the hairstyling industry by storm and want a stellar barber chair to be your sidekick, Dir Store’s Vanquish is the way to go.
Although Vanquish has a lot of features worth mentioning, the first thing anybody would notice is its appearance. I’ve lost count of how many customers complimented the chair upon arrival.
The circular back housing a small, lunchbox-like headrest coupled with an intricate design in the footrest-area, this barber chair gave can make even a simple salon look refined.
Similar to the Facial Beauty Bed of Dir, the Vanquish also has memory foams instead of foam padding. I’ve already explained the perks of having a chair with memory foam. Not only is it more durable than standard polyurethane foam, but it also keeps the spine and shoulders comfortable.
The headrest is removable, but this time around, the armrest isn’t. The chair is naturally tall, so without removing the headrest, styling can become troublesome. However, the arms are stationary and wouldn’t budge even if you hit it with a hammer.
Anyways, the fixed armrest isn’t something to lose your sleep over. Why? Because the Vanquish can’t do a 180-degree bend. Without the 180-degree reclining position, a removable armrest is unnecessary. It’s only when the chair can transform into a bed is where armrest removal becomes viable.
While it doesn’t have a 180-degree recline, it can go as far as 45-degrees. Honestly, I think it’s more than enough for hairstyling purposes. A full-body massage or makeup is off the table with this chair. However, the chair was never meant for anything more than hairstyling, so I can’t complain.
Vanquish is the first chair I found that broke through the standard 400lbs load capacity threshold. Even the comparatively expensive Facial Beauty Bed couldn’t go past it. This chair can hold up to 580lbs.
On paper, having a customer who weighs this much is a one in a million chance. But think of it this way- a chair that can withstand one-eighth of a car’s weight must be durable.
I have no qualms about this chair. However, the footrest can become shaky if you put too much pressure on it. Still, it’s not a dealbreaker because the pressure needed to break through the footrest’s defense has to be immense, which is unlikely to happen ever.
If you want a high-end chair within a tolerable budget but offers all the features a professional could ask for, the Vanquish is the undisputed champion. I would even go out on a limb and declare it one of the best barber chairs in the market.
After getting my hands on the Dir’s Vanquish, I put an end to my exploration into the premium barber chair territory, focusing instead on low to mid-tier products.
It took me a while as I was out of the budget-game for a long time. But after some research, I came across the Artist Hand Hydraulic Reclining Barber Chair.
While this chair is not as cheap as the Funnylife Hair Salon chair, it does have a few extra tricks up its sleeve that justify the extra cost. For instance, it has both height adjustment and recline option- not an everyday sight in the budget-chair industry for sure.
However, the height-adjustment isn’t smooth. While it moves as it should and stays in the designated place, the movement is stiff. You will probably end up putting a lot more effort into adjusting the height because there is no hydraulic-motor this time around.
I must say, the recline I got from this chair is more than satisfactory. It can go down up to 135-degrees, which is not something I expect from a chair at this price range. Also, the recline movement is much smoother than the height-adjustment.
Also, the 360-degree swivel feels like a cherry on top. I already got impressive flexibility with the height-adjustment and recline option. Adding to that, the ability to swivel the chair won me over.
The swivel seemed pretty seamless. However, I would suggest swinging the chair only when you need it. What I mean is- the base that handles swivel can wear out quickly if you put too much pressure on it.
The footrest of this chair is decent. Nothing to gawk at, but it does the job. While the gap between the seat and the footrest can be a bit uncomfortable for customers, it’s not a major no-no. Keeping in mind that this is a budget-chair, I am willing to look past the slightly sub-par footrest.
I understand that the Artist Hand Hydraulic Barber Chair comes at a reasonable price. Still, there are a few instances where I felt the manufacturers could’ve done a better job. The first issue is load capacity.
I can live with the standard 400lbs. Even if a barber chair cuts it down a little, let’s say by 10 or 20, I’m good. However, when the difference is more than 50 and close to 100 (330lbs), that’s just taking it too far.
A lot of my colleagues told me I was being unnecessarily paranoid about the load capacity. Why, you ask? To me- a low load capacity is indicative of low durability. And I was/am right. If you’re not careful with how you handle this chair, you’re going to regret it big time.
Despite all these rants and tantrum-throwing, I do stand by the Artist Hand Hydraulic Barber Chair. Is it an incredible barber chair? No. But it does the job for a reasonable price.
My hunt for a stellar barber chair continued as I ventured further into the budget-chair territory. I tried to cut some more corners with money to see whether I could come out on the other side somewhat unscathed. After a few failed attempts, I found the Artist Hand Hydraulic Barber Chair.
The seat and the backrest in this chair have sponge padding. Compared to the memory foam, available only in high-end barber chairs, the sponge padding seems a bit lackluster. However, if you stick to hairstyling only and don’t expand into body massages, it’s not that big of a deal.
Also, I could adjust the height of the chair by simply using the hydraulic pump. Not all height-adjustable chairs feature a hydraulic pump. The perk of having a pump is that it makes the height-transition process smooth.
There was no reclining option in this barber chair when I got it. However, I wasn’t let down about not having a recline option because of the slashed cost. If I wanted a similar chair that reclines, I had to shell out $50-$70 more.
Although there is no back-and-forth bending, the swivel mechanics almost makes up for the lost ground. I remember checking the consistency of each swivel without having anybody on the chair. To my satisfaction, I didn’t find any stiffness in movement.
Following the footsteps of all the other standard barber chairs, this one also has a footrest. Although I curbed my expectations a lot because it’s a budget-chair, I was still disappointed.
The footrest has no width to support a grown human foot. It could barely hold half. So, the other half of a customer’s foot that would remain outside the footrest’s reach became numb due to inconsistent blood circulation.
There is no headrest to speak of as well. It’s just the backrest. So, if you wanted to give someone a shave, you would either have to force them to keep their head straight or switch chairs.
Let me put this out there – I’m not the person who sets unrealistic goals for budget items. If I’m cutting corners with money, I have to expect the same from the manufacturer. So, I was able to look past the thin footrest and the no-headrest.
Still, the Artist Hand Hydraulic Barber Chair could use some improvement. I think some more features should be added, even if the price goes up a little. Another friendly note- the chair is short. So, if you’re a few inches taller than average, be ready for a lot of bowing and leaning.
Although I’m hammering this chair for its lack of features, there isn’t any other barber chair with more to offer at a $120-$150 price range.
If you’re just starting out as a stylist and need to get money rolling before you go for high-end chairs, the Artist Hand Hydraulic Barber Chair is undoubtedly one of the modern barber chairs.
Shampoo sessions after a haircut is a common practice of barbershops. I would be lying if I told you I didn’t try to give my customers shampoo using the traditional barber chairs. It didn’t work out.
Hence, my hands were tied as I had to get a shampoo station for my salon, which led me to the Polar Aurora Backwash Barber Chair.
Before I get into the details about this chair, let me tell you what a shampoo/spa station is and how it differs from other barber chairs. Firstly, there are no height-adjustment or recline options whatsoever.
The chair is more like a crooked bed. Also, a shampoo bed may or may not have an attached sink. If it does, then you’re good to go. If it doesn’t, you need to get the bed next to a sink.
With that out of the way, let’s focus on the Polar Aurora New Barber Chair. I liked the foam padding of the chair. I asked my customers how they felt lying on it, and the responses were positive. Although I would’ve preferred having memory foam over the traditional, I’m still happy if my clients are happy.
The stand-out perk of this chair is the attached sink. Trying to get a sink in a convenient position in a parlor and getting the shampoo bed next to it can be exhausting. So, the all-inclusive bed and sink combo took this added hassle off my chest.
Also, the sink has everything a professional would need to deliver a complete shampoo or spa treatment. The switch and drainer are standard, but there is a shower nozzle that helped me give a thorough wash to my customers.
The weight-tolerance of this shampoo bed was around 450lbs. As you can see from the previous breakdowns, I get pretty intense about the load capacity of a chair because it has a direct bearing on durability. So, the 450-mark is a number I could work with.
Shampoo stations can be expensive, especially if it has attachments. Comparatively, the Polar Aurora New Backwash Barber Chair is a bargain. I understand the “Over-$200” spot can make it look expensive. But trust me- for a shampoo bed that’s as low as you can go.
However, this chair isn’t all sunshine. I had a hard time getting it ready for use. Even the plumber I hired got stumped with the sink and drainage. For a moment, I thought I would have to return the bed because the drainage system wouldn’t work, but my plumber came through.
Thus, if you don’t have a seasoned expert to help you with this chair, you’re in for a rough ride.
Finally, the bed is a bit too low for my liking. I understand shampoo beds by nature should be low in height, but this one is just an-inch too low.
After trying my hands on nearly a dozen chairs, I was almost done with my conquest. However, my unquenchable thirst for trying out new things got a second wind as I heard talks of a quality chair. So, I decided to give the Artist Hand All Purpose Chair a shot to see whether it can give the other top-tier barber chairs a run for their money.
What caught my eye right off the bat was the plethora of adjustment options. In most barber chairs, it’s this or that. If you get one feature, you don’t get the other.
However, the Artist Hand All Purpose Chair was the step ahead. I could adjust the height, recline, and even swivel- all the options were available.
Also, the adjustable headrest adds more flexibility to the table.
The chair can bend up to 145-degrees. It’s not a complete 180, something necessary for a full-body massage. Still, I found the 145-degree recline to be more than enough. There is a lever on the side to adjust the horizontal positioning. The simplicity it added to the mix was a welcoming experience.
I always keep a close eye on the quality of the footrest in a barber chair. I have good reasons for doing so. In barbershops, customers sit for long hours on a chair. So, it’s important that they feel at ease.
One quick solution to most customer discomfort is to have a nice footrest, and this chair has it. There is no gap between the seat and the footrest. Also, the width can accommodate even the largest of feet.
This barber chair has a standard foam padding. Sure- I prefer memory foam over the traditional padding. However, I’m willing to look past this if the barber chair is comfortable in general. With the positioning options, height-adjustment, and proper footrest, the barber chair had the comfort department covered.
If I had to put my finger on another feature that reeled me into this barber chair, it would be the load capacity. The standard 400lbs tells me that it’s durable. However, if a chair goes beyond the average 400lbs, it’s definitely something to get excited about.
Although I enjoyed using the Artist Hand All Purpose Chair, it did have some issues I had to contend with. For starters, getting this chair ready for business is nothing less than a nightmare. The manufacturer missed one installation tool, and I had to work around it.
Also, a chair packed with so many features at such a decent rate seems too good to be true. To some extent, it is. This barber chair isn’t going to win any prizes for durability. While the high load capacity makes it somewhat sturdy, the overall construction is poor.
Despite all the complaints, it’s hard to find such a versatile chair within the $200-$250 price range. So, if I’m ever tight on money, I would get the Artist Hand All-Purpose Chair.
Things I Considered When Coming Up With These Recommendations
Professional barber chairs come in many shapes and sizes. There’s the shampoo station, massage bed, hairstyling chair- plenty of options. No matter the difference in design and construction, the qualities to be on the lookout for remain the same as always.
So, having a checklist of must-haves and knowing the answer to a few questions is a wise practice.
What Type of Barber Chair Should You Get?
As I just said, there are different types of barber chairs, each with their own merits and shortcomings. Knowing what is available will help you determine what you want based on your needs.
Hairstyling Barber Chair
The most common and pervasive form of barber chair is the hairstyling chair, also known as the salon chair. As the name implies, these chairs are suitable for cutting the customer’s hair. While they can function as a pseudo-massage place, you can’t give a full-body massage using these chairs.
If I had to suggest, I would say the Dir Store’s Vanquish triumphs over the rest. Although you have to shell out some extra bucks, it’s worth every penny. If you have a budget leash, you can go for either the FunnyLife Salon Chair or Artist Hand Hydraulic Barber Chair; both are a bang for the buck.
I understand there are dedicated massage beds. However, some flexible barber chairs can work wonders as a massage bed as well. These chairs have taken flexibility to new heights. The whole chair can morph into a min-bed in an instant.
I loved using the Dir Store’s Facial Beauty Bed, and I think you would enjoy it too. It has memory foam for superior comfort, and the adjustment options are fluid and effortless.
The name says it all, doesn’t it? Yes- shampoo stations are chairs or mini-beds that a barber can use to give a shampoo or spa treatment. Most shampoo beds are not adjustable. They stay reclined at 145 to 150-degrees. You may or may not get an attached sink, depending on the green you’re willing to spend.
If your budget is a little north of $200, I would recommend looking at the Polar Aurora New Backwash Barber Chair. It’s not the best shampoo bed by any means. You can do better. However, the money needs to be better as well. For the price, I think this bed is worth a shot.
More Flexibility Equals to More Styling Options
Once you’ve set your sight on the type of chair you want, the next task is to make sure what you’re getting is flexible. You can work with a stationary, no-movement barber chair. But trust me on this- a flexible chair will improve your styling game by a mile.
So, be on the lookout for both height-adjustment and reclining options. While the former will allow you to keep the customer at comfortable length, the latter will help you get a better look at the customer’s face without moving too much.
And if you’re a flexibility fanatic like me, there are chairs with removable arms, headrest, and footrest. So, customization options are aplenty- just keep your eyes open.
Be Generous with Money
Everyone wants to save money. Everyone wants to get the best deal of their life. You, me, even the Richie Riches of our generation are guilty of wanting more. I’m not saying you get less for what you pay when it comes to barber chairs. But if you want to bag a truly stellar chair, the money needs to be big.
So, I suggest you get the salon business rolling and put aside some cash every month for high-end barber chairs. Trust me- the difference between a budget chair and a quality chair is massive. You can definitely work with a budget-oriented chair. However, a premium chair ends up paying for itself in the long run.
Barber chair prices range from $150 – $2500. The gap between the two numbers is startling. My suggestion is to find a middle ground- from $1000-$1500. With this investment, you can get a chair that would stay and toil by your side for years.
The Question of Comfort
Barber chairs must be comfortable. You can’t make your customers sit on something made of plastic. Not only will it damage your reputation, but it will also give the client a backpain if they sit there for hours on end. So, make sure to check whether the barber chair is comfortable.
What type of foam is put into the chair determines how comfortable it can be. There are three different variations- foam padding, memory foam, and sponge padding. Dense foam padding is the most pervasive. You’ll find it in most barber chairs, even the budget-friendly ones.
Sponge padding falls into the same bucket as well. The difference in comfort isn’t noticeable.
From the three mentioned here, memory foam is the clear winner. It has pressure-relief properties, and body weight is dispersed equally throughout the backrest. So, check what type of foam you’re getting when you hunt for a barber chair.
Keep an Eye Out for Load Capacity
If you’re up to speed by now, you should know how fussy I get regarding load capacity. Load capacity weight-tolerance (as I like to call it) is the amount of weight a chair can withstand. The standard number is 400lbs. However, you’ll find a lot of ups and downs. Some will go higher and touch the 440lbs mark; others will go down to 330lbs.
I get so riled up about load capacity because it determines the sturdiness of a barber chair. The equation is pretty simple, more weight-tolerance=more durability. I don’t want my chair dying out on me after a few months of use. That’s why I always check how much hit a chair can take before giving up.
You should stick to the standard 400lbs number if you’re in doubt. Just don’t go below a 300lbs-threshold, and you’re good to go.
Good-looking Chair for Better First Impressions
When you are about to ignore how a chair looks, revisit this Bill Gates quote- “If you can’t make it good, at least make it look good.” I’m not saying every bad stylist will get a free get-out-of-jail card just because they have handsome furniture. But the opposite will happen. I mean- a good stylist will take a hit to his/her reputation if the chairs in the shop are second-rate.
So, when you’re about to invest in a barber chair, don’t ignore presentability. Create a strong first impression by having some handsome barber chairs by your side.
How to Keep Barber Chairs Clean
If a pandemic outbreak has taught us anything, it’s that cleanliness is not only next to godliness, it’s also essential for survival. So, if you want your barber chairs to survive through years of beating, you should know how to clean and maintain it. Here are a few tips to help you along the way.
Tip-1: Clean After Every Treatment/Haircut
Although all barbers wrap their customers with a cloth, some hair is bound to slip into the chair. So, cleaning the chair after each haircut will keep debris build-up at bay. Have an end-of-day cleanup routine to keep the chairs in good shape.
Tip-2: Be Gentle
Barber chairs are susceptible to scratches. You have to be on your toes all the time. So, wipe the chair’s surface with a washcloth gently to avoid the water from soaking into the foam.
Tip-3: Avoid Chemicals
I understand the temptation of using ammonia, bleach, or petroleum because it’s a quick-fix to all cleaning problems. However, it’s not recommended for barber chairs. It will make the chair’s exterior vulnerable to aging. Instead of chemicals, stick to the traditional cleaners.
Tip-4: No Water for Genuine Leather
Most high-end barber chairs will likely have a genuine leather wrapping. So, do not use water to clean a leather exterior. Try using a dry washcloth but not too coarse. A liquid cleaner works as well.
Tip-5: Spread Water or Cleaner Evenly
When you’re dabbing water or cleaner over the vinyl or leather surface, spread it equally. Do not linger on a certain area for too long, or the water/cleaner will seep into the foams.
Tip-6: Use Specialized Cleaners
If you want to make cleaning even easier, use a specialized cleaner. Specialized cleaners have specific instructions you can follow. Also, you don’t have to worry about surface damage as much.
Nearing the End
If you’re a budding stylist, I understand how scary it can be to put your foot down. A barber chair is a hefty investment, hence, the fear. Even professionals who have been in the industry for long have trouble getting the best barber chairs for their salon.
That’s why I tried to help by putting down all the information I deem worthy. Although I have listed the top 7 barber chairs here, I have my favorites among them. If I have to crown a champion from the listed chairs, my vote will go for Dir Store’s Vanquish. This barber chair is simply a cut above the rest.
However, if your wallet isn’t up for this purchase, I would suggest looking into the Artist Hand Hydraulic Barber Chair. This barber chair can help you get started with your salon with a minimal investment.
Still, you don’t have to take my word for it. Understand what you need, and put it against what a chair has to offer. Every barber chair is a different piece of the puzzle. How you want to solve your salon-puzzle is for you to decide, ciao!
