Pedicure chairs are the bread and butter of any nail salon. At Buy-Rite Beauty we offer an extensive collection of professional plumbless pedicure chairs to fit any salon or spa. A plumbless pedicure chair is a type of pedicure chair that does not require a direct connection to a water supply or drainage system. Instead, these chairs typically feature a removable basin or foot tub that can be filled with water manually. They are a perfect solution for salons and spas with limitations on plumbing capabilities and/or space.


Buy-Rite Beauty is established as a prominent authority figure in the beauty industry through our unwavering commitment to providing top-notch salon and beauty equipment. With 87 years of experience, we have garnered a reputation for delivering high-quality products that meet the diverse needs of salon owners and beauty professionals. Pedicure chairs are a high priority for us because we know how powerful they can be in any salon. We proud to offer the best pedicure spa brands in the industry like J&A U.S.A., Pibbs Industries, and Collins Manufacturing to offer the best selection possible to create your dream salon.

Why Stylists Love It: The Mona Lisa Pedicure Chair maximizes space in any salon due to its retractable design. The footbath can be tucked underneath the seat allowing the entire pedicure mechanism to be hidden. This chair can double as a pedicure chair or a waiting area chair. The backrest reclines with an adjustable headrest for client comfort. It also has the easiest installation process of any of our pedicure chairs.

Considerations: This chair offers limited design flexibility, being available only in black, and it also presents a somewhat unconventional appearance for a pedicure chair.
