Laptop Stand Doubles as Mani Station

Nail tech and hairstylist Melissa Thun of Studio Four in North Bend, Ore., found ergonomic ease on Amazon in the form of a Windsor laptop table she uses to perform manicures. “My table is very light and totally portable, so if a client isn’t able to sit on the platform, I can move it anywhere in the salon to make her more comfortable,” says Thun. “The tabletop itself can angle any way you want. The table can also adjust from a sitting to a standing position if needed. It moves out of the way easily when I do pedicures. I love that this table has an edge on both sides so whatever I place on top won’t roll off if I set it at an angle.” To the left is a UV light that rests on a lazy Susan so it can be turned easily to fit whichever hand is being cured. “I roll up a second towel under the client’s forearm for comfort as well,” she notes. “I have been using this set-up for about three months and I love it. It takes all the pressure off my neck and shoulders while I work, and I find that my back doesn’t hurt at the end of a busy day.”
