The need for comfort is of high importance for a salon. Customers come to you for relaxation and entrust you with their looks. For many people, it’s their only “me time” they get. You want to make that experience as pleasant as possible to have a repeat customer. You may not think it’s important, but a salon footrest can be a deal-breaker for some. The ability to kick your feet up is the dream, right? While not everyone finds them important, many customers will notice if you don’t have them. When considering what footrest to select, firstly think about where it will be placed.
If you don’t have much space in the salon, you may want to consider a footrest that attaches to the salon chair. If you’ve purchased a chair from AMR, most of the footrests are compatible. This allows clients to lift their feet without the fear of them tripping over the stool on the way to the basin. Most barber chairs already have an in-built footrest, so it’s not often you need to hunt for a separate stool. Even some makeup chairs have in-built footrests, saving you the hassle of finding one later.
If space permits, you could get a salon footrest that can be moved. This is great so you can move it as needed. Secondly, you’ll need to consider the design. AMR offers a single bar footrest or a chrome 3 bar option. Both add comfort but it ultimately comes down to appearance. If you have any additional questions about the right footrest for your space, our friendly staff will happily help.
