Below we break down the best types of salon towels. With using lots of products, such as skin care, hair care, moisturisers etc. towels often carry the residues of these products. Leaving towels untreated can lead to safety risks as well as expensive damage of stock.
There are many different towels on the market. All are suitable to be used in spas as well as hair, beauty, nail and tanning salons. Due to there being so many, it means that there are a variety of different materials, brands and sizes to choose from and it can be a tough decision finding the right one for your business.
100% cotton and cotton blends are the two main types of cotton towels:
So, it depends upon personal preference! Be wary of recycled cottons as these result in less absorbency and durability.
As well as towels being durable, stain resistant and soft, they should also be bleach resistant! The best bleach-safe towels are resistant to harsh chemicals such as bleach, chlorine, peroxide, acetone and dyes. Before purchasing, make sure the manufacturer guarantees they will never fade or lose colour.
Microfibre cloths are multipurpose, super-soft and useful in all parts of the salon.
You don’t want to have faded or stained towels in your business. Instead, you want to be as professional as possible! Good colour-safe linens should be fine in hot water and bleach without losing any colour. Always make sure to read the washing and manufacturer’s instructions before purchasing!
Most salons and spas use harsh chemicals for salon services and cleaning. Non-chemical proof towels will quickly begin to appear spotty and frayed if used with these compounds. The cost of replacement linens can add up quickly, especially if towels start to wear after their first use.
It’s best to make sure you have a daily supply of towels for each part of your salon, such as hair, nails and tanning, and that they are kept separate! If they are mixed around the different stations, they may not last very long as they’re exposed to contamination! Try to avoid using the same towel twice (unless it’s been properly cleaned in-between). A survey by Easydry found 65% would change their salon if they found out it did not provide fresh towels.
