I have a Venus salon chair I no longer use. Brand-new this chair retails over $400. With the dryer unit on the back of the chair it weighs 125 lb. The back heater portion does come out of the chair its-self. This chair get hot, it functionally doesn’t have a single flaw in operation. On the actual hardware there is some minor scuffs as shown in the photographs. If you have any additional questions please ask before you purchase because all sales are final.
