This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Having a rinse at the salon is generally a relaxing process, but doing the same thing at home can become quite messy and frustrating. Convenient for mobile hairdressers and carers, these shampoo bowls are a great way to emulate a professional wash wherever you choose. Many options have adjustable heights, making them handy for wheelchair users, those who are bedridden, or children. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 14, 2020:

Comfort is always key when using any shampooing station. Most hairdressers will be aware that you need to support the weight of a guest's head when washing to ensure there is not excessive pressure on the neck. Holding your hand under a person's head while washing, and assisting them as they straighten up, is essential to helping to prevent any injuries.

We wanted to include a range of products that would suit a variety of needs. For mobile hairdressers, who want their wash station to perform as well as their high-quality shears, the RFC Salon, and the Nova Microdermabrasion Portable are both great selections. In addition to helping to create a salon-style experience in the customer's own home, they are both light enough to move around without much effort. The former has the advantage of coming with a drainage bucket, though we weren't convinced that this warranted its much higher price tag. For hairdressers making a home salon, the eMark Beauty Sink is a high-quality wall-mounted selection that may combine well with a nice barber's chair. It has a high-gloss finish, a comfortable gel neck rest, and it comes with a spray hose and water supply lines.

The AW Hair Treatment has a height range of 25 to 37 inches, making it a good option for use with a reclining chair, or for wheelchair users. However, with the basin set so low, it can be difficult to drain the water away. The Chrome Cherry Mobile is ideal for nursing homes and other care settings, as it can be used over any sink or bucket, even while the client lies in bed. Its inflatable style may not scream professional, but it does cushion the neck nicely.

Special Honors

Pibbs 5260 Tilt Bowl A white porcelain sink set upon a wood laminate base, this selection is ideal for those wanting a professional feel in their salon or home setup. It tilts up to 6 inches forward and back to accommodate most chairs, and it comes with a sprayer and water supply lines. americanbeautyequipment.com

Originally from Wales, UK, Cat skipped the country shortly after completing her bachelor of arts in English and social policy, with no real purpose other than to see the world. Years and countless jobs later, such as coaching tennis, teaching at the constitutional court of Indonesia, and building a guesthouse on a beach, she still has no intention of settling down. Having begun training in Taekwondo at the age of five, she achieved her black belt before going on to study kickboxing and Krav Maga, resulting in a good knowledge of all things related to martial arts. Through years of hiking up volcanoes and mountains, scuba diving, and just generally riding around on a motorcycle, Cat is well informed in the fields of outdoor clothing and equipment, camping paraphernalia, and of course travel.
