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.

Odin Shampoo Unit

SOMERSET, NJ – Takara Belmont released the new Odin backwash unit, which offers new or current salon owners a value-focused equipment solution that brings the comforts of a tilting shampoo bowl, contoured seat cushions, and wide seating space to clients.

“Based on customer feedback, we aimed to tackle a challenge to create a value line that is robust, comfortable and stylish,” said Daisuke Nakamura, Product Manager of Takara Belmont USA, Inc. “the result is a series that features a new shampoo unit paired with an existing and proven styling chair that checks all of those boxes.”

With up to four inches of high-density foam, the backwash seat has a striking balance of plush comfort and solid support.
