Manicures are a great service for salons to offer. Any salon owner will tell you that comfort and luxury re part of the experience for repeat customers. To create that comfort and allow for the best manicure experience, salons must have the best equipment. Having the right manicure table can lead to an increase in revenue and an improved customer experience.
What is a Manicure Table?
Nail technicians have a number of tools that allow them to do their job. A key piece of that is the manicure table. The manicure table is the workstation that allows the nail technician to deliver their service to customers. The manicure table can be made of a variety of materials. The table should be easy to clean and keep sanitized. The table should allow for the customer to be comfortable throughout the entire experience. The table should also have the capacity to store all of the tools and equipment needed by the nail technician.
Several manicure tables have tops that are made from different materials. Some tables use glass. Some use granite and wood. Regardless of the surface material used, focus on comfort for the customer and the ease of cleaning. Those two points will make all the difference.
Key Features of a Manicure Table
There are some features that can make all the difference for a manicure table. There are far too many to list, but we will cover a few in this section. We’ll start off with the table top material. As mentioned earlier, the table top can be made of a variety of different materials. It is important that the material creates the look and feel that fits in your salon and gives your customers the appearance expected and desired. Consider the interior design of your salon, and find a table top that fits best.
Some salons need to have flexibility in how the space is used. To accommodate, many manicure tables are mobile. They have wheels attached, which allow salon owners and nail technicians to move the tables around and work with the flow of the salon. If you purchase a manicure table with wheels, it is very important to make sure that those wheels have locks. Using a workstation that is moving around, even a little, can create an unstable surface for the nail technician to work from.
There is also the question of utility. While the manicure table should look good, it is meant to help facilitate the manicure itself. Some tables have drawers attached. Some tables have a single drawer. Other manicure tables have a shelf display unit on the top of the table to arrange the technician’s tools. These features will be important to some nail technicians, and unimportant to others. It is certainly a consideration when selecting the right manicure table for your salon.
The table should also have a depth that allows for comfort for the customer. If the table is too narrow, the customer’s arm will not be supported, and the customer might experience discomfort. If the table is too wide, the customer’s hand might be too far from the nail technician’s hand. Comfort is important.
How Much Should A Manicure Table Cost
Manicure tables can be priced at a wide spectrum, from under $100 to several thousand dollars each. The really inexpensive tables tend to be made with cheap materials. Those cheap materials tend to wear down sooner, forcing the nail technician to replace or repair the tables more often. The really expensive tables might have more features than is needed in your salon. Each salon will have a different look and need for manicure tables. Allow those needs, relative to your budget, to guide your budget needs for the manicure table you purchase.
