Do you want to start a hair salon and you are considering what type of reception desk to buy? If YES, here are 10 best reception desks that will put a flair in your hair salon. The front desk is the unavoidable first point of contact that sets the tone for your clients. Giving every client a positive experience is necessary if you intend to keep doing business and growing your salon.

Efficient check-ins put clients at ease from the beginning. Good interaction with your front desk staff throughout the visit may motivate clients to buy more products and book follow-up appointments, which boosts your bottom line. Chaos at your hair salon reception desk kills the relaxing, welcoming vibe you want for your salon. Inefficiency can hurt your business and make you lose money.

Hiring salon staff with strong interpersonal skills and a calm demeanor helps your front desk run smoothly. Since the receptionist is the first person your clients interact with, your goal should be to make it a welcoming experience. Someone who gets frazzled easily when things get busy can make your clients feel rushed.

You also need someone who can handle multiple tasks at once and prioritize effectively. Your receptionist may have phone calls, client check-ins, clients ready to pay, and stylists with questions all at once. Dealing with those interactions calmly and efficiently improves the customer experience and keeps things moving.

Salon reception desks are usually the first thing customers encounter when they come through the door. First impressions count, and nothing makes a bigger impression on entering a salon than a distinctive salon reception desk.

Some salons opt for a functional, muted designs, but why not be daring and go for a reception desk that makes a real statement. With room for computer displays and additional features such as lockable cash draws and retail display areas, it falls on you to make your choice count.
