Storage & Carts
What exactly is an esthetician cart?
An esthetician cart — also called a spa cart or a salon rolling cart — is a shelved unit used for storing and moving beauty and massage supplies around a spa chair or treatment table. An esthetician rolling cart is a mobile workstation where you can keep small salon equipment and supplies that you often need in procedures. Some esthetician trolley cart designs also come with a power strip attached; other spa carts have recessed cups to move your bottles around without the risk of accidental spills.
Do I need wheels on my esthetician cart?
Wheels are an essential part of spa carts, as you need to be able to move them around with ease, pulling them closer to the salon chair or table when needed and getting them out of the way when the treatment is over. If you are looking for an esthetician cart or trolley and you set your eyes on something that doesn't have rolling casters, then it is not a cart, but a basic storage unit like any other piece of furniture.
Do salon trolleys come with drawers and locks?
An esthetician trolley cart has at least one drawer, but no locks. Depending on the manufacturer and model, trolleys can be fitted with additional drawers, including digital warming drawers for towels and massage stones, a towel rack, and even a dimmable work light.
What are the best options for organizing my salon station?
To keep your salon station tidy and have everything handy, you need a sturdy table or cabinet to store your bulkier spa equipment, an esthetician cart to move necessary supplies around, and several containers and drawers for smaller supplies. For instance, you can use a beauty supply organizer or a set of glass dispenser jars with lids to hygienically store cotton balls, wax applicators, short nail files, sponges, cosmetic pads, and glycolic applicators.
What is the difference between a cart and a trolley?
An esthetician rolling cart is a lightweight shelved unit on wheels, whereas an esthetician trolley cart has a sturdier construction and at least one drawer. In a way, spa carts are a lot like the utility carts employed in hospitals and restaurants, while trolleys tend to look and perform more like wheeled cabinets. Another functional design you can opt for is that of an Amber Smart Bar that you can easily customize with pods and bowls for your massage and spa treatments.
Whether you need a cart, a trolley, or a smart bar to make your job easier, see if it comes with a power strip, as this is a convenient feature. You can also attach a power strip yourself, but it is much easier to avoid tripping hazards if it comes as a built-in feature instead of an afterthought. Another aspect you should pay attention to is drawer size and the height between the shelves, as you want to ensure your larger accessories fit well enough.
What do I store in an esthetician cart?
Depending on what you need most frequently throughout the day and how much space your cart or trolley has, you can store small spa equipment and supplies, like towels, lotions, bottle warmers, cotton pads, applicators, or brushes. Some trolley cart models may come with a wax heater, a small facial steamer, a herbal diffuser, and/or a practical rubbish container for easy disposal of cotton supplies during treatments.
