Taking Care Of Your Salon Tools.

Tools in the beauty industry are not cheap and are really made for the professional. Keeping them clean and dry are very important and also clean from all the oils, gums and alcohols from hair care products. Here are some tips to make your tools last longer.

  1. Good tools can be quite an investment, but if you take good care of them, they’ll return the favor. Keeping your tools properly stored, cleaned, and maintained will save you time and money and make your endeavors that much more rewarding.
  2. Keep your tools in a dry place.  Enclosed spaces can have humidity issues, especially if they are not heated or air-conditioned. If you keep your tools in a location like this, especially if you keep them out on hooks or bags, consider investing in a dehumidifier to keep the dampness down. They’re not terribly expensive, especially compared to your investment in your tools, and most let you set a humidity level so the dehumidifier turns on only when it needs to.
  3. Use silica gel packs or rust collector. The silica gel packs that come in lots of packaging are great at keeping moisture at bay. Toss them in drawers or bags and they can help keep rust away.
  4. Cleaning your tools may be the last thing you want to do after a day of work, but it’s essential for keeping your tools in good shape. And it really only takes a few seconds per tool unless you’ve got something really nasty on your hands. It’s well-worth the time spent doing a little cleaning to save the time spent repairing a tool (or the money spent replacing it) later.
  5. Hand tools: You can clean most hand tools by simply wiping them down with a rag. If they’re dirty, don’t be afraid to give them a good wash with soap and water. Just dry them well afterward. Spritz metal with a light coat of WD-40 and wipe with a clean rag (you really just want to leave a light film on them to help keep the rust away). Wipe wooden handles with a rag dampened with a little linseed oil. Give it a try every one.!

Doing a good hair color and hair design and giving the client their own look is hard enough in the salon. But giving a good finish is also important. Hair styling tool are important you have a choice of sleek, curls, waves, fullness for deciding the finished look to the model.  It is very good to invest in the best tools you can possibly have to work with. Sometimes the latest and greatest is not always the best choice, manufacturers will copy others in their field and add-on gimmicks that the tools will do this and that. When I do my finish work in the salon or on set, I highly recommend using a boar bristle brush for the finish work if you are looking for sleekest, straightest and or waves. There is a company in my industry who makes the best and I highly recommend this company.
