About Us

Since 2012, the HeadBed has been adopted by the best salons around the world and the hairdressing elite from Paris, London, New York, Madrid, Moscow, Dubai, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

HeadBed has revolutionised client’s comfort, safety and care whilst at the shampoo bowl.   It’s ergonomically designed platform gives adjustable support to the customer’s head at its’ heaviest point, the occipital bone, therefore protecting the neck.  

No HEAD support can cause pain and injury to a person.   The head weighs on average 4 kgs, and with the head leaning backwards into the shampoo bowl, it is not natural and puts about 25 kgs of pressure on the neck, causing pain and strain to the client’s neck, spine and back muscles.

To avoid the potential of neck injury, such as Salon Sink Radiculopathy, also known as Beauty Palour Stroke Syndrome, HeadBed is a must-have on all shampoo basins. 

  • it fits all standard shampoo basins (hairdressing salons, home salons, portable wash basins and aged care facilities’ salons).
  • Medically endorsed and meets Salon Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) and Duty of Care and Hygiene requirements.
  • Compliments your hair salon procedures and safe work practices at the washbasin.
  • Will last for many years of constant use, therefore is great value for money.

Catherine Randabel

HeadBed was invented by West Australian naturopath Catherine Randabel (BA Phys.Ed & Psych., Grad.Dip.Psych., Dip.Applied Science Naturopathy. Member ATMS).

Catherine started her Naturopathic practice in 1991 and has since built a successful and busy private practice in Wanneroo WA, blending all aspects of natural therapies including remedial massage.

Catherine began to observe with her clients a cluster of neck problems and headaches that started at the hair salon during and after the hair wash that motivated her to solve the problem and create the HeadBed.  After years of research, and understanding and observing the actions/activities that occurred at the salon sink from a customer and hairdresser’s perspective, the HeadBed was conceived.  Read her blog for more information.  

Catherine has a university degree in Teaching, Psychology and Physical Education.  She particularly enjoyed the Biomechanics, Ergonomics and Sports Massage units of the Physical Education degree. She also has a graduate Diploma in Naturopathy and Remedial Massage Therapy.

Cathy Dalton

I have always experienced pain at the salon sink for years.  So when Catherine first shared her concept of head support with me, whilst she was fixing my neck, I knew the idea was brilliant.  Having traveled to many places around the globe and had my hair washed at many salons, I knew that we could "save the necks" of woman and men around the globe.  

Cathy is a Senior Business and Marketing lecturer.  She holds a Grad. Cert. Business (Marketing) and is an Associate Member and Certified Practicing Marketer, Australian Marketing Institute, and a CMM for the Property Council of Australia.  She is an astute and commercially aware professional with a hands-on management style, and 20+ years senior marketing experience in local and international markets.
