The nail salon industry in general, and especially the pedicure throne sector, has continued to come out with new innovations and upgraded products year after year, and though innovation means great things for the industry, it can also make purchasing the right equipment for your needs more difficult.

Make sure you research equipment, visit tradeshows, websites, and showrooms to get an idea of what manufacturers have to offer. Also ask your clients and technicians what they’d like out of a throne. Would they like an easier spa to clean, a spa with music options, one that considers the needs and habits of technicians? Perhaps style is a main motivation, or maybe standard features are all you need. Put the effort into researching the style, options, upgrades, and price you’re looking for so the pedicure throne you finally choose is right for your needs.
