You will need one to two salon chairs. You will need mirrors in front of your chairs. Beauty treatments such as perms and hightlighters. Hair conditioners, shampoo, brushes, combs, razors, and more. You will need carts to put your rollers in and other hair clips. Are you going to have a nail technician? They need equipment as well such as manicure table, chairs, pedicure chairs, and supplies like polish and emery boards.
