Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market the Hair Team Salon, a much-loved community salon opportunity with over 25 years trading goodwill.
The business and property were recently purchased by our client who is now looking for a new tenant to both own and operate the salon as well be the first person to be given a new long business lease.
The salon is completely staff run by an extremely loyal team of 4 who have all worked within the business from 11 years up to 20 years. Collectively they currently achieve a combined turnover of £10,000 per month which could instantly be further increased by a new owner/ stylist or new owner/beautician.
Currently the unit is split into 2 x separate areas, 1 for lady’s hairdressing and 1 for men’s barbers (own external entrance). Any new owner may look to re-configure the large available space to allow a new Beauty room or any similar linked business focus.
The team is split 3 x ladies hairdressing stylists and 1 x part time barber who all have a full column booking list with regular clients, offering a full hairdressing list of services including colours using the renowned L’Oréal brand.
We are advised the last full business accounts achieved approx. £160,000 in 2018 which any new owner could instantly add 50% by adding with more stylists, an additional barber or new beautician.
There is also available space in the window area which could easily accommodate 1-2 nail stations.
Our client is offering a very reasonable rent with favourable terms to be agreed to suit both sides.
In preparation for a new owner, our client has invested time in improving the health & safety, first aid facilities and personnel support for the stylists and will be very happy to hand these processes over to any new buyer.
Currently the towels are taken away and laundered at a price of £1,500 per year which could easily be taken away by managing in-house.
Very rarely do profitable local salons of this nature ever come onto the open market and we strongly advise early viewing to avoid attention.
The business is run and managed by the current team which includes -
- 1 FT stylist.
- 2 PT stylists.
- 1 PT barber.

TUESDAY - 9am to 5pm
