Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Mopp Heads which is a well established Hair salon with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a well known local business in an area teeming with customers.
Mopp Heads was founded by the current owner eight years ago when he identified a gap in the market and has been a real labour of love for him, accruing many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation.
The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the owners wish to enjoy a well earned retirement. He is keen to see his beloved hair salon pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
Mopp Heads provides a specialist Children’s hair salon to clients throughout Leamington and the surrounding towns and villages. The business has an impressive number of regular customers, many of whom are known on a first name basis by the current owner who is a popular and well respected member of the local community.
