Buy-Rite Beauty offers professional Barber and Wet Stations that are designed to keep you organized and accessible. A barber station, sometimes called a wet station, is different from your standard styling station because the shampoo bowl is typically connected to the workspace. These are designed to eliminate the need for a separate backwash unit or shampoo bowl in a barbershop since most shampoo services are simple and quick. It gives barbers the ability to wash and cut in the same area. We have evaluated all of our options for barber stations based on the most critical criteria to present the top-ranked barber stations to choose from.
