If you’ve decided to open up a cosmetology school and educate others on the ins and outs of beauty, then the design is one of the main aspects to think about. Why?
Well, the way a facility is designed represents one of the key factors influencing not only students’ decision to choose one school or the other, but also their overall learning experience.
If you want your cosmetology classes to stand out from the rest and attract as many potential students as possible, keep these things in mind when picking beauty school furniture.
Functionality and Design Both Influence the Student’s Experience
First impressions matter.
When deciding which beauty school is right for them, students look for an attractive and functional environment where they feel motivated and excited to build their set of skills.
Therefore, the cosmetology equipment you provide at your educational facility should be both aesthetically pleasing and help students maximize their learning experience.
- Functionality wise; ensure the beauty school furniture can be adjusted to fit students’ needs. For example, stations should have tool holders and be designed to hold mannequin heads.
- As far as design goes, the space in which the classes will take place should be aesthetically cohesive. In other words, it should be tied together by color, style and choice of materials. This helps create a welcoming, professional-looking learning space for students.
Beauty School Furniture Is Usually Subjected to Heavy Use
Visible signs of wear and tear, showing chips and de-lamination; these are all common equipment problems which can make students perceive your cosmetology school as being unprofessional and outdated.
So how can you avoid it?
For starters, it’s important to understand that stations used to teach students are exposed to a different kind of treatment than those used in a typical salon.
Beauty school furniture will be used intensively, so it needs to be durable enough to hold up to your average cosmetology student.
That’s why we recommend stainless steel furniture for your beauty school.
As opposed to wood and laminate cabinetry, for instance, stainless steel fixtures are resistant to chips and gouges. What’s more, stainless steel is low maintenance, easy to clean and will most likely look the same 10-15 years from now.
So if you’re looking to expand the lifespan of your investment without compromising students’ learning experience in any way, check out our Steel Furniture Collection, which was exclusively designed for cosmetology schools.
Experience Is All-Important
The use of durable materials which can withstand the test of time represents a warranty in itself. However, there’s nothing which can replace experience when creating a space where cosmetology students can thrive.
We know this because we’ve worked with beauty schools for over fifty years, including high schools such as Aveda, Loreal, Lord & Taylor Empire Schools, Chicago Vocational Schools.
With experience, comes extended expertise and an in-depth understanding of the types of challenges educational cosmetology programs tend to face when creating a space all those involved can benefit from.
