Why You Should Buy Wholesale Salon Towels
When you wrap yourself up in a towel, you expect it to feel soft and plush. Your towels should retain their absorbency and last a long time.Salon towels are the best kind of towels for that purpose.

Benefits of Using Salon Towels
Salon towels set the standard for how towels should feel and work. Their careful construction and classic material help them last longer while still maintaining their softness and absorbency. Overall, buying wholesale salon towels will let you enjoy these benefits:
When you're looking to get a salon towel, you can choose the size you want. Some might want a small towel to quickly dry off, while others could want a large one to relax in. Consider that different sizes will have different parameters for how to care for the towel. If you get a smaller, 100% cotton linen, expect it to shrink slightly after you've washed it. Bigger, heavier towels will take longer to wash and dry.
A towel's drying and absorbing qualities depend on the towel's loops. Salon towels have many thick loops that soften the towel and absorb every last drop of moisture.
You want your towels to have quality, comfortable material. Cotton is an ideal fabric for towels because it hits those marks, and it's also breathable. This gentle material won't bother your skin or clients' like coarser materials would.
Towels should last much longer than two laundry cycles. Towel Super Center's towels have tight stitches so they don't fray or have loose strings. Our salon towels retain their shape and appearance.
What Is the Importance of Using Quality Towels?
Quality towels do more than pamper you. They provide a safe, gentle surface for your skin. Knowing how to towel off properly will help you maintain a healthy complexion and glow and treat clients with comfort.
When you towel off, your towel will pick up skin particles and oils. If you rub your skin with too much force, you can spread these particles and oils to other places on your body. The most susceptible area is your face. Towels with low-quality materials will irritate your skin, causing skin issues like redness, blackheads or acne.
Salon towels made with soft materials will help reduce skin irritation. You should also dry your face or your client's first using light pats. Then you can towel off your body. Consider using a separate hair towel because residue from shampoo and conditioner can get on the towel and rub into your skin.
What Are the Benefits of Buying Wholesale Salon Towels?
Usually, a retailer buys bulk amounts of a product and then marks up the value to sell to the public. We don't do that. Towel Super Center sells salon towels wholesale, which has significant benefits:
- Save money: When you buy wholesale, you get discounted prices because of the amount you're buying. You don't have to deal with retailer prices.
- Buy in bulk: You can get a set of towels for discounted prices. You don't have to worry about the retailer not having enough of the towel you want. Towel Super Center offers bulk sizes of one dozen and more.
What Are Bleach-Resistant Towels?
Towel Super Center has bleach-resistant salon towels that are specially treated to allow them to be exposed to bleach but not lose their ability to absorb water and feel wonderful. Anyone can use a bleach-resistant towel. Whether you're buying for a salon or personal use, a bleach-resistant towel will take care of all your needs. These bleach-resistant linens are:
Hair salons need towels to withstand contact with hair and nail products. Spas need their towels to stay plush and fluffy after many wash cycles. Bleach-resistant towels resist stains and retain their quality after you've washed them multiple times.
Soft and Absorbent
Other towels in retail stores have a chemical coating that makes them soft the first time you use them. But the chemicals wash out quickly, leading to towels becoming scratchy and less efficient at absorbing water. Bleach-resistant towels hold off chemicals and retain their soft, plush feel after you've washed them a few times.
Easy to Maintain
Separating darks and lights is a thing of the past. Bleach-resistant color towels can be in the same load as color towels. You're saving time and money when you invest in bleach-resistant towels.
Buying our bleach-resistant towels in bulk will get you a significant amount of towels that will last for a long time.
What Are Terry Towels?
Towel Super Center offers many materials for towels, including terry towels. Terry is one of the best materials you can choose for your linens. Cotton is the primary material in terrycloth, and it includes polyester, rayon or linen so the material can stretch.
There are four different types of terrycloth you can select from for your salon or personal use:
- Standard terryclothis a typical towel material. The fabric features woven loops on both sides.
- French terryclothdoesn't have loops on one side of the fabric. It stretches more than standard.
- Micro terry fleece has woven loops on both sides of the fabric like standard terrycloth, but its primary material is polyester. It's also extremely absorbent.
- Knit terrycloth is similar to French terrycloth, as it has interlocking loops on one side of the fabric. This material is stretchy and soft.
For salon towels specifically, terry towels have several benefits:
- Absorbency:Terry is very absorbent and an ideal material for towels.
- Hemming:The sides of terry towels have hems so they can go into the washing machine without you worrying about fraying or loops becoming loose or undone.
- Drying:Terry towels dry quickly and efficiently, reducing the time and potential for bacteria to form. Bacteria thrive in moist areas, so always make sure to hang up your towels and dry them properly.
As you should with other linens, care for your terry towels correctly. Don't double up towels on a hook or over a towel bar because they can't dry all the way and bacteria can grow in the trapped folds. Never fold and put away moist towelsas this will promote bacteria growth and leave your towels and linen closet with a musty, stale smell.
How to Take the Best Care of Your Towels
When you get your new towels, you're going to want to take care of them to help them last longer and stay luxurious. Constant cycles with detergents and fabric softeners can damage your towels or make them less absorbent and useful. Taking good care of towels is easy with these tips:
Use the Right Detergent
Make sure your detergent works with your washing machine to ensure the most effective wash cycles. Some brands work for both regular and high-efficiency machines, but some have different products for each machine.
You should also only add the recommended amount of detergent. While you might think adding more detergent makes linens cleaner, it does more harm than good. Too much detergent means the rinse cycle won't run long enough to rinse all the soap away.
Laundry soap leaves a residue on the towel and can trap odor. The drying cycle will make your towels stiff. When you pull your towels out, they won't feel plush and might smell musty. If you use them, they won't absorb moisture well.
Your towels with vibrant colors will set if you wash them with half the normal amount of detergent and about one cup of vinegar. The vinegar helps preserve the colors and remove detergent residue.
Wash your towels every three to four days for personal use. After just one use, the towel has picked up some dirt, dust and skin particles. The best towel is always a freshly laundered one. If you're regularly washing your towels but can't seem to get rid of the musty smell, perhaps it's time to try a vinegar and baking soda rinse, using these steps:
- Load your towels into the washer.
- Add a cup of vinegar where the detergent goes. Don't add any detergent.
- Run the washer.
After this process is complete, leave the clothes in the washer and add a cup of baking soda where the detergent goes. Once again, don't add detergent. After the rinse cycle is complete, tumble-dry on low heat.
Go Easy on the Fabric Softener
Try spreading out your fabric softener uses or avoiding it for towels altogether. Another option is not to use the recommended amount of fabric softener and go with less. Too much fabric softener leaves a residue on the towel that will negatively affect the fibers and make your towel scratchy and less absorbent.
You could use alternatives to fabric softener that still get the same results. Add dryer balls or clean tennis balls when you're using the dryer. As the balls bounce around inside the dryer, they smooth out the fabric.
Don't Overload the Washer and Dryer
Adding too many towels to a washer will prevent the towels from getting clean. As they fold or clump together, any dirt or dust particles in the folds won't be able to wash out. Specks of detergent will cling to your towels if the rinse cycle can't properly clean them.
The same principle goes with your dryer. Overloading a dryer prevents everything from drying properly. You can run it for a longer time, but this will cost time and money. If you take towels out of the dryer and put them away while they're still damp, the moisture will help bacteria grow and make your towels stale and unsanitary.
Shake Your Towels
Give your towels a shake before loading them into the dryer so they dry evenly. Shaking also fluffs the fabric loops and keeps the towels absorbent. If you don't shake your towels before putting them in the dryer, the process will iron any creases or folds from the washer.
Barber, Nail Salon and Spa Towel Options
Towel Super Center offers a wide variety of towels.Search for the specifications you need to find your perfect salon towel. If you aren't sure what linens would suit your home or business needs, consider these tips for buying wholesale salon towels:
Find the Right Material and Durability
Keep in mind that towels can feature different fabrics. You'll find that towels made with 100% cotton or an 86/14 cotton-polyester blend work best for salons. These towels absorb moisture at higher rates than options that feature other materials, and you'll also find that they look and feel more luxurious. Plus, cotton helps your towels hold up better against wear and tear over time.
Like bed sheets, towels come in varying densities, measured in grams per square meter (GSM). These numbers directly translate to the towel's heaviness and absorbency. For a salon setting, you'd generally want to pick towels in the medium or lower ranges— between 200 to 400— so they're just thick enough and they feel soft and plush on the skin.
It's smart to invest in high-quality towels from the start. You won't have to replace them as often, and your customers will feel more comfortable and pampered whenever they visit your salon. At Towel Super Center, we offer economy, premium and premium-plus towels, which you can browse to find the best quality for you.
Are you concerned about how your salon's products might affect the towels? Most salons use shampoos, toners and other beauty products that contain chemicals. These ingredients may create marks and stains on your towels that don't come out unless you use bleach. That's when bleach-resistant towels would be your best bet.
Pick From Different Colors
Pick your favorite color for towels, and we'll most likely have it. We offer over 20 different colors so you'll have the perfect towel to match your home or salon. Whether you like crisp whites, royal blue, beige, black, charcoal or another shade, Towel Super Center will have a towel color that you like. We also have plain towels with a blue or gold stripe.
Consider how often you'll use the towel or what color will fit your needs. Darker colors can hide some small imperfections better than lighter colors, while a classic white towel always looks elegant. Mixing and matching is also an option.
Figure out Which Size Works Best
Before you place a bulk order, you should determine which towel sizes suit your salon's needs.We specialize in all kinds of linens—hand towels, bath towels, gym towels and car wash towels, to name a few. Our towels range from small to large, and we have a huge selection of sizes so you can find the perfect size linen.
Most salons need towels for cleaning messes, drying hair and other specific tasks, so you'll want to choose the correct dimensions according to whatever services you offer:
- Bath towels are 27 by 52 or 30 by 58 inches.
- Hand towels are 15 by 25 to 18 by 30 inches.
- Washclothsare 12 by 12 or 13 by 13 inches.
These are the most common towels salons use in their daily activities. While bath towels are large enough to dry hair properly, you can use hand towels for hand and foot treatments. Additionally, smaller towels work well for facials. If you have to clean up a spill, you can quickly clear the area with a washcloth.
Our sizes for bath towels are 24 by 50 inches, 27 by 54 inches and, if you want a much larger towel, 34 by 42 inches. The hand towels we offer range in size, including 15 by 25 inches, 16 by 24 inches, 16 by 26 inches, 16 by 27 inches and 16 by 30 inches. For washcloths, you can find 11 by 11 inches, 12 by 12 inches and 13 by 13 inches.

- Bleach-resistant:Cotton bleach-resistant towelswon't get chemical spots or fade, and they absorb all the moisture when you're drying off.

- Premium:Wholesale premium towelslook and feel luxurious but don't break the bank. They're durable and will impress your clients or look fantastic in your linen closet.

Keep a few in the car in case you need to clean up a spill or wipe off the rain.
- Premium-plus:Our premium-plus towels are made with 100% cotton and will soak up anything. You don't need a unique cleaning method for premium-plus towels. Run them through the washer and dryer and they'll be ready to go the next time you need them.
- 86/14 blended:Poly/cotton blended towels are thick and built for function and comfort. This material breathes easily so you save time drying the towels outside or in a dryer.
