The Hair Apartment is located in Southampton, Hampshire.

The business is situated on a main road, which has a variety of other retail outlets. There is a solicitors, bank, estate agents, accountants, carpet shop and more. This is an excellent location that receives a generous amount of heavy footfall. Although there is a large amount of commercial property, the majority of this area is residential; from which the business derives much of its trade.

The road on which the business is located, is the A3051. This arterial road runs from Botley, down to Locks Heath; the road also connects to the M27 motorway. As well as great road links the area also benefits from public transport. There are bus stops within close proximity of the business, these have regular daily routes into Fareham. The closest train station is a 5 minute walk from the property.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Hair Apartment. This hair and beauty salon was originally established in 2009. Our client took over the salon in 2014 and is now looking to sell, due to the desire to concentrate on other business interests.

This is an exceptional business that has been run to a very high standard, benefiting from a generous amount of repeat loyal trade. The salon offers a generous range of hair and beauty treatments and services. They offer treatments such as, blow-dry, hair ups, full head foils, nail treatments, eyelash tints, lashes, waxing, make-up and massages. The salon also offers men's haircuts and colouring.

The business generates a great turnover of 105,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 83%. This is a great turnover that has scope to be further increased. The beauty side of the salon is currently only making up 20% of the turnover; more treatments could boost this figure.

Our client currently offers a VIP membership to encourage repeat loyal trade. The membership lasts for a year and is 49,95. Customers benefit from 10% off all treatments, exclusive offers, a glass of bubbly on each visit and three free hair treatments a year. This is very popular and should be something the new owner continues.

The business has an easy to use website. The site is filled with an abundance of information, price lists, photos, lists of treatments and more.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewings to take in the full potential of this quality salon.
