Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Fantastic Hair Company. The salon is Basingstoke's award winning Wella premier salon and Inspire15 Business and Community Award winners.
Established over 25 years ago by our clients, a successful husband and wife team. The business has an enviable reputation seeing a high amount of repeat custom and word of mouth referrals.
The business previously operated from a premises within the local estate, however due the huge popularity of the business, the salon was relocated to these larger premises 4 years ago. The salon is immaculately presented throughout and offers professional hairdressing services for both men and women including specialist perming, colouring, Afro services, straightening and prom and bridal hair styling.
The Fantastic Hair Company offers cutting edge techniques using only the highest quality products. Including Phillip Kingsley NIOXIN and Alterna, revenue is also generated from the salons' own FHC brand with over 20 products available. The salon is very well known for the exceptional quality of service offered, with client consultations readily available. The staff are all very friendly with the Senior Stylists boasting over 20 years of experience in the trade. All the stylists are trained in diagnosis of scalp conditions and scalp exfoliation.

The salon has earned their outstanding reputation for also providing value for money and offer a loyalty scheme. The business has a user friendly and comprehensive website (www.fhcforhair.co.uk). The site includes an online booking system which is easy to use. This is a high quality website that is included in the sale. The salon also has a presence on Facebook with regular features and rave reviews.
The development of a new housing estate (600 homes) within 5 minutes' walk of the salon, offers an exciting opportunity to develop the business.
