How can I use 1950's hair salon chairs?

I have two hair salon chairs with built in hair dryers on them. I am looking for any ideas on what to do with them. Thank you!

  • If the vinyl covering is in good shape, you can leave it as it is and repurpose (rewire) the dryer as a lamp. You'll have a wonderful chair for reading!

    Hello Dianne,

    I believe this was a challenge and flea market flip they created unique seating with electrical lighting inside the hair bonnet.

  • If you don't want to keep them, a local community theater would probably love to have them!

  • Do you have a picture, I would love to see them to help come up with ideas.

    Hi! I've seen them in actual salons (cute seating), reupholstered, and pictures of them as seating in homes. Apparently there are people who collect them, also, as I've seen them on Ebay, Etsy and Facebook for sale from $95 and up. I remember the episode of Flea Market Flip, too, just not the specifics!
