The Best Barber Chairs by Brand Name
In My Own Opinion
In my opinion, there are a few barber chair brands that stand out and are better than the rest. Again, this is my own opinion according to my own preferences for barber chair design, comfort, etc. And I have not received any compensation for writing this. It's just how I feel. Now that that's out of the way let's get down to business.
So, I've noticed a few brand names that make the kinds of barber chairs that I like. Now, the first thing that I notice is the overall look and design of the chair. Next, I look at the craftsmanship and how it's made. Finally, I look to see how comfortable the chair is. Now of course, I can't sit in every chair, but a lot of the recent year's barber chairs are made similarly. So, it makes it a little easier to compare.
Now BestSalon seems to be the big man of barber chairs. I see them in a lot of the barbershops and salons that I've been in. I've had the pleasure of sitting quite a few of their chairs over the years. And all of those were very comfortable to me. Some of my favorite barber chairs of theirs are the Salon Spa R chairs. They remind me of the vintage barber chairs I sat in as a little boy. I get that spaceship feeling every time I'm in one. The leather is plush, and that red color takes me straight back to my childhood.
Exacme, another known brand name, has a chair very similar to the one I just mentioned. It's called the Exacme Hydraulic Barber Salon 8702BW chair. That's a long name, right? I have never seen this chair in person, but I mentioned it because of its similarity to the previous one.
This next chair is also by BestSalon but it must be the Cadillac of barber chairs because it's a little pricey. I saw it online, read the reviews, and spoke with a few owners of the chair before I decided to write about it here. The overall consensus is that it just a great all around chair. One of its most talked about features is that it’s very sturdy and extremely well made.
