These are the baseline chairs that might be best suited for a salon that is just beginning. CCI Beauty's baseline chairs still offer comfort and adaptability, and many are available in varying colors to match the salon's overall style.

At the very top of the line for salon chairs, there are models that run around $700, for the top of the line luxurious salons. These chairs have an even more luxurious look than most, and are fitting for salons that have a modern, high-end style.
