I have to pay to do Pedicures
#1
The salon that I am a booth renter at is getting new chairs and the owner decided that for every Regular Pedicure I will have to pay the salon $9 and I will get $21 for Spa Pedicure I will have to pay $15 and I will get $35. This is for the use of the chair. I thought that part of my rent went to pay for her chair. She said that this is common. Have you seen this.

That's crazy - 30% of the service fee PLUS rent? I'd be moving pronto.

I have paid if the chair belonged to someone else, like another tech and not the salon- but to the salon-no. That should be part of the rent.

I suppose it depends. I think it stinks, and should be included in rent. What were you doing for pedicures before that? Keep doing it that way instead. It's unfortunate but salon owners don't have to provide us with anything but walls and roof and running water. I know of several techs who paid to plumb in their own thrones, and yes they take them when they leave. You can opt out of paying like I suggested by not using the thrones she put it. That's her equipment she can have sit there with no clients of yours in it. Are there hair stylists in your salon? Do they pay extra for their shampoo chairs when washing a client? I doubt it. You can also bring up the fact that the fee she is trying to stick you with is not in the lease. And not agreed upon as of now. When the lease comes around she can negotiate and you can work it out or of course go somewhere else. I would never ever ever give a salon owner more money per service to use salon equipment put it to service the clients needs. Not one penny more than rent let alone the outrageous amount she is asking for.

I rent and pay per use for the pedicure area as well. Just because it's a different area of the salon I'm using. But I don't see why the fee should change based on what service you did.

What if you offered to pay for one of the chairs? I think after a year of paying that much per pedi, you would save money.

I've never heard of that??? Wonder what she would do if you brought in a Footie Bath or something mobile?

If it were someone else's chair I could see it but even Id thnk $5 is enough. If he salon owns it, thats their own deal and their own expense. You shouldnt have to pay for new equipment.

Track down the lady on this site who posted information about waterless pedicures. Embrace her philosophy about why they are better and convince your clients that you are offering them the latest and greatest by going dry. This will defeat her attempt at making you pay for (buy) her chair and make you stand out as unique in the salon. I, personally, don't like sitting in a pedi chair.

Here's some info on waterless pedicures that was originally published in the April 2010 edition of the Stylist:

Thank you fo much for posting that, Jamie, I attended your class in Orlando last year and I didn't get around to emailing you for a link to the steps..I still want to look at doing them that way,, On the other note about charging per service. I own a booth rent salon and thought about charging per service and the only reason I would do that is to cover the expenses of the chemicals needed to maintain the cleanliness of the spa itself. I haven't as its one other person and myself doing pedicures. p

OK now please no one kill me for saying this, but the feet are dirty if we do not use soap and water to manipulate the debris and bacteria via rubbing and then rinsing. To use a sanitizer spray is not going to properly clean the feet prior to service. So how is this step taken care of with a dry pedi? A spray bottle will feel chilly unless we use some type of warmer. And when I have tried to wipe scrubs and masks off with towels, I go through 5X more during the day than I feel like I should. I also feel like I never get it all off with just wiping. I suppose this is why the class is in place. I am not in a position to pay for a class on dry service when the steps IMO only are going to be the same aside from the soak and rinse I discussed above. Am I the only one who likes to wash the feet and not just set dirty feet to clean themselves in my basin?

I would also look into Jamies waterless procedures or the footsie and Belava systems. Is the owner going to provide the required disifectant products to properly clean the unit for that price?

Hi, Jamie, can I also sign up to your page?
Although I have just bought Footsie Smile, I will always gladly learn something new.
Do you use drills for pedicures? I use that drill:

to remove hard skin and deep calluses, takes some time when feet are in a bad shape, but will always do miracles for them.

All professionals are welcome to sign up! I don't use a drill; I've been a hand filer for 20+ years : )

Pardon my french but that is TRULY a crock of bull! I get so frustrated when I hear about these owners trying to juice their renters! They would dare not charge the stylists $7/shampoo if they got new bowls...or would they!

I wouldn't break bread with that. I'd find a new salon post haste.
