CoGoGo is delighted to present to the market one of Essex’s most well established and highly renowned Hair/Beauty salon businesses.

The ‘Turn key’ opportunity was first established by our client over 40 years ago, who is now looking to find the right buyer to allow him to retire.

Avant Garde is a multi-faceted business which offers both hairdressing, barbering, beauty services and a highly sought after training academy.

This is one of the most successful hair salon businesses CoGoGo have ever offered to the market with an impressive annual turnover in the region of £545,000. The salon is one of the most progressive and innovative names in the hair and beauty industry both within this area but within the wider hairdressing world.

As the success of the business has grown, so has the salon space. There are a number of adjoining units now creating an expansive business space of over 6,000 square ft.

  1. Hair - A full choice of hair styling and colouring services are available from Stylist to Director with prices ranging from £30.00 to £67.00.
  2. Beauty – A full range of services including nails, tanning and facials available.

  • Bespoke reception counter with client booking system
  • Treatment beds, sink & storage 
There is a fully trained and very loyal team in place which includes style directors, stylists, colour technicians, receptionists, beauticians and juniors. Majority of the team is employed on a full time basis, however there are a number of self-employed positions on the beauty/barbering side of the business.

Our clients passion and knowledge of the industry is clear to see in the organised salon space and customer testimonials.

  • Largest salon space in the area
  • Excellent renewable lease in place
