another upgrade

Good morning.
It's been a hectic week in the Salon. The phone has been ringing off the hook! But busy is good! :-)
With our Salon now 14 years old, we've been doing some remodeling. You remember the new chair mats we got last year and the new surveillance system, now we've replace the heat lamps. I've never liked this type, but there wasn't much selection back then. The top light was shorting out so instead of fixing it, we decided an upgrade was necessary.The old lights above, and the nifty new ones below...

The new ones have only 1 light in the back instead of 2. It was way too much heat on the back of a clients head. And the new ones have 4 branched lights instead of just 3 for better heat distribution. We use the lights for speeding up the processing of hair color. Mainly foils. That's how you get those variations of shades from hi-lights to low-lights.
Also, the new lights have a dimmer switch to control the intensity of the heat. The old ones were just on or off.
Anyway, they are a nice upgrade, and we're very happy with them.
I've got another crazy busy day today, so it's off to the shower I go.......


  1. Looks like a cool lamp I need for my house. :-)

  2. Glad to hear you're busy.
    Your new light makes me think of an alien. ;)
    It does look spiffy though!
