Old Barber Chairs: Where to Get One?

Are you planning of getting some old barber chairs? Are you going to set up your own salon or maybe spa? If you are in a tight budget but still would like to get something nice for your shop then you’d better settle for some second hand tools that are not only cheap but still work well.

Before your start your salon, it is important that you gather all your stuff first. Make sure that you have al the necessary cutting tools such different kinds of hair scissors, combs, blow dryer, shampoos and conditioners, towels and most of all the barber chair. There are actually lots of designs and styles to choose from. There are traditional chairs and even those European chairs are both great selection. These are both made with hydraulic base so you can easily raise and lower down the chair for the comfort of your client. Traditional chairs are made form vinyl or leather like materials. These are most common style of barber chair used in salons and spas. European chairs are probably the most elegant kind of barber chair available in the market today. It is made from vinyl and has a wooden arm rest and leatherette headrest. This is use usually in spa as it looks more elegant and expensive than those traditional or contemporary barber chairs. There are lots of online shops offering second hand barber chairs. These chairs are still in good condition but to make sure that you will only get the best one, it is important to compare one chair to another. Never settle for the first chair you will come across. You can also obtain second hand barber chair from salons or spas that are closing down. They usually sell their tools and chairs in very affordable price. Sometimes it will only require mild mending of the foam and upholstery. If you are lucky enough, you may even get more discounts and some freebies form the owner. These styles and designs of chairs will not only make your salon or spa more comfy looking but it will also add up drama and flair to your business plus the fact that it is less expensive compare to new ones. Just imagine what these old chairs will appeal to your customers? The idea of having antique items on your shops is enough to gather more customers. They will even probably feel and think that maybe, just maybe someone famous had sit down on that same chair a long time ago. So if you are really up to having a salon or spa, make sure to get some old barber chairs especially if you are in a tight budget. But if you have enough capital for your business, then go for something brand new.

  2. Hello,

    My father was a barber for 52 years. His barber chair is one that I will never forget. Unfortunately, it got away before I could get my hands on it. It had to old fashioned leather strap on the side to sharpen the straight edge razor. I am looking for a replacement, picture as well as an old fashioned barber pole. Would love to know where to get one. Looking forward to hearing from you. Evan M. Hockett

  42. Just after 20 years of faithful service, my Sunbeam Mixmaster gave out.

    When I replaced it with another the same brand, I
    quickly discovered that they just don’t make things like
    they used to! Therefore I got a new kitchenaid, like everybody else.
    It’s been some years ago now and I still dislike that Kitchen Aid!
    I don’t like that you can not add ingredients quickly while blending without placing the
    collar and chute on the bowl, you cannot scrape the bowl while the beater is working, it is very
    sloppy (something usually seems to fly out the bowl, it doesn’t matter
    how careful I’m), I cannot seem to obtain it set correct
    so that the ingredients in the bottoom of the bowl get integrated into the batter, and
    it really is just too big and heavy!
