Buying a Beauty Salon with Hilton Smythe

Beauty is big business.

If you want a slice of the pie then Hilton Smythe can help you find the perfect Beauty Salon.

Whether you’re an established hairdresser or barber ready to make it on your own, or you want to run the town’s busiest beauty salon, you can become a business owner. We’re one of the UK’s biggest business brokers and have years of experience matching buyers to their perfect businesses.

Can you cut it in the beauty industry?

There are currently over 40,000 hairdressing, barbering and beauty businesses in the UK generating over £7 billion in turnover each year. Women, and increasingly more men, are willing to spend a good amount on their appearance with a range of regular hair and beauty services. Many high street salons employ hairdressers, nail technicians, beauty therapists, brow technicians and make-up artists. There are also many standalone beauty salons which specialise in cosmetic treatments and cater to the growing demand for non-surgical aesthetic procedures.

People are willing to spend more and more to delay the signs of ageing and stay youthful for longer. From lip fillers and permanent last extensions to botox, there are a range of non-invasive procedures which are becoming more popular each year. More beauty salons are starting to offer these services to keep up with demand.

You don’t have to be a trained hairdresser or beautician to run a beauty salon or spa, however it does help to have an insight into the industry so you can understand client needs. Most salon owners have at least one skill, and hire other specialists to offer a variety of services.

Owning your own business

Are you sick of renting out a chair or being paid minimum wage? It’s time to take the leap and open up your own salon to build a client base. It might seem scary for first time business owners, but if you have the passion and the commitment then you could have a very profitable business.

If you need help financing the sale, then our Financial Services team are here to help you through the process. Funding a business can be daunting for first time buyers, but rest assured that most people need access to finance in order to buy a business. Once you’ve found your ideal business in your chosen location, we’ll take care of the rest.
