Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Anna Mather Colour Specialist Hair & Beauty. The business was first established by our client in 2011. The owner is now looking to sell the business, due to the desire to focus on a change in career path.

The business runs as a hair and beauty salon in a village location. Although this is a village salon the business is run like a busy city salon. The salon receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade from the locals, as well as custom from Edinburgh and the boarders.

The business provides a range of services and treatments at competitive prices. The salon specialises in colour and clients travel from far and wide just for the colour services. Colouring is in high demand at the salon.

Male hair styling as well as women's cut and blow, styling, nail services, facials, massages, brows and eye lashes are also available.

The staff are well trained and attend regular training events and seminars, to make sure all techniques are up to date. Plus, the salon hosts regular evening events to teach customers how to style their hair at home. These events are popular with customers and should be something the purchaser continues.

The business generates a turnover in the region of £80,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 80%. This is a healthy turnover; however, we feel this figure could be increased further. The new owner could look to expand the beauty treatment services. The property is a great size and comes fully-equipped.

As well as treatments, the business also offer an excellent selection of branded styling products. Consultations and colour advice is done for new customers and for regular clients, so staff are able to suggest which products are best for their customer's individual style.

The salon already has an outstanding online presence. The sale includes the business website, this has a generous amount of information. There is scope to improve the website. The business also has a Facebook page, this is regularly updated and has over 1,600 followers. We are advised that our client hosts regular competitions via the page. This is very popular with the followers and much of the custom is generated from the Facebook page.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
