RICHE Eyelash Chair

SOMERSET, NJ – Eyelash services are one of the hottest subsets of the beauty industry, and this growing market has yet to see a proper chair for these processes. Takara Belmont’s Riche chair is here to finally change that.

While the end product of eyelash services is glamorous, the process behind it is intricate and lengthy. Using standard salon and spa chairs is not only uncomfortable for both clients and practitioners, but can also be dangerous. When administering services to something as delicate as the eye, it’s important to be comfortable not only for luxury’s sake, but safety. Developed with extensive research into the beauty, ophthalmology, and other medical fields, the Riche is designed to create the best experience for both the stylist and customer.

One of the most basic but important advantages of the Riche is that the chair, stool, and wagon are created in sync with each other, giving the stylist a clear sightline for the entire treatment, and the customer the least amount of adjusting. The chair is angled at a five-degree incline, developed out of research indicating that this is the best possible angle for eyelash services. With a contoured head pillow and webbing technology, the customer is made to feel like they’re in a hammock, leading to less squirming, fidgeting, and jerking. Not only is it luxurious, but it also lets stylists more easily administer services on a still customer. Practitioners are also provided with armrests that lock into two positions, sustaining their comfort throughout the procedure.

“Takara Belmont is always committed to designing its products with both the customer and stylist in mind” said National Sales Manager Steve Hughes. “The eyelash services industry is thirsty for something that is made for these specific services, so creating a system that addresses all aspects for both customers and practitioners was a huge focus in our development of the Riche.”

Beyond the chair are a stool and wagon that work to create the most efficient system possible for these services. The stylist stool has a large seat, designed to evenly disperse body pressure, which allows for the stylist to sit for long stretches of time. The wagon can elevate and spin, letting practitioners access their tools without disrupting their services. With such comfort and ease of usability, additional services like eyebrow shaping, make-up, facial treatments, manicure can all be provided in the same chair. The single-acting leg rest allows pedicure and foot care services as well. The Riche proves itself as the ultimate ecosystem for these services.

Legend Barber Chair

SOMERSET, NJ – In one of their most innovative product releases yet, Takara Belmont’s Legend Chair is ushering in a new wave of electronic barber chairs.

With a proud Men’s Grooming lineage on display, the Legend stands out at the most iconic chair on the market. While some barbershops cater to the vintage feel, the Legend considers the modern man, thrusting men’s grooming forward into a new direction with its cutting edge technology.

With extensive research and years of product development experience, it’s evident that The Legend has simply thought of everything when it comes to satisfying its customers. Boasting features like custom designed leather, a groundbreaking headrest, and a nearly fully horizontal recline, the Legend chair proves itself as a game-changer for both customers and barbers.

Customers can finally sit in luxury for the length of their appointment – regardless of how long it may be. The Legend’s full-flat leg system keeps their whole body relaxed. With their body pressure more evenly dispersed, they may not even realize their head is leaning against a shampoo bowl to start with.

Barbers and customers alike will enjoy the smooth action of the chair, as it seamlessly switches positions when turning or elevating thanks to its shock absorption technology. They can also take advantage of the add-on service tables, letting customers set their drink down and barbers conveniently rest their tools.

Barbers can also take advantage of the light-up preset options, which save the positioning of their preferred settings at the touch of a button. The auto recline feature allows the chair to return to it’s upright position in a snap as well. These features are accessible on both sides of the chair for convenience, and even light up so that they can be utilized even with a cape hanging over them. Its removable footplate also allows barbers to more easily cater to the handicapped and elderly, who can step into the chair with ease.

“Perhaps the greatest mark of this chair isn’t even on the chair itself.” Steve Hughes, Takara Belmont’s National Sales Manager says “Because this chair is so comfortable, smooth, and stable, it actually expands a barber’s service menu. It’s such a revolutionary chair that one of it’s key features isn’t even on the physical chair itself, and that’s an exciting product for us to release.”

The Legend barber chair is available in two types: Standard and Full-flat. The Standard model is approximately 287 lbs. with seated dimensions measuring 36” H x 29” W x 41” D and an inner arm-to-arm width of 19 inches. Similarly, the Full-flat model is approximately 286 lbs. with dimensions measuring 36” H x 29” W x 42” D.
