How do I use copper bowls for pedicures?


I’m planning my business, and I love the idea of copper bowls for pedicures. But I’m not sure I’m understanding how they would work. Would you use the bowl alone, or would it have to sit atop a fixture? How would a client prop her feet so that the service can be performed?


BuyNailsDirect can build to order a Katai Spa with options of either a copper bowl or a fiberglass basin. All the salon has to do is install the plumbing which includes drainage and hot and cold water.  The price retails for approximately $2,700. Most pedicure procedures consist of five steps:soak (warm water), exfoliate (salt or sugar gel), soothe (mask), massage (oil), and moisturize (lotion). With a pedicure spa, the nail tech does not have to carry water back and forth; therefore, the turnover time per client is much faster.  Furthermore, the client can relax and enjoy back body massage with the Human Touch chair during the entire service.  — Quy “Charlie” Ton is the owner of Alfalfa Nail Supply.
