Our customers love what we do

Hilton Smythe were a great comfort and source of wisdom for me during my first purchase of a business. No question was too small and they were a reliable and friendly service. I hope to work with them in the future.

Selling a salon business can be difficult, because it’s such a niche market.

It may be tempting to approach other hair stylists you know when thinking of selling your business. But it’s recommended to seek help from a professional business broker. We can advertise your salon to relevant buyers and facilitate the sale. Are you ready to leave behind your scissors and hairdryer? Hilton Smythe has successfully sold many businesses like yours and is in a good position to find a suitable buyer.

Always searching for the best deal

When you instruct us to sell your business, we’ll do whatever we can to get the best possible deal. We care about you and your hair salon. We know that you want to leave your salon in good hands, and also get the most value from your business. With our expert help, we can ensure we seek out the ideal buyer who is looking to buy a business just like yours.

Hair salons and barber shops are a mainstay on British high streets, contributing £7bn in turnover each year to the economy. Hairdressing is a vibrant industry to work in and although there can be a lot of competition, most salons have the option to explore other revenue streams and potential for growth.

Be proud of your achievements as a business owner and boast about how far your salon has progressed. Many people are interested in buying a hair salon business, whether they have hairdressing skills or not. We’ll connect you with these suitable buyers and help you make the business look even more attractive to investors.

Preparing to sell

Our experienced advisors will offer bespoke advice to help you prepare your hair salon for sale. Selling a business can be quite stressful without the right help – but we can guide you through each part of the process and break down the jargon which is difficult to understand.

We’ll help you look at your business with a buyer’s point of view to identify key areas for improvement. Make your business more attractive to prospective buyers and you’ll sell the salon much quicker. It’s also important to get all your paperwork in order as this can cause delays along the line.

Are you aware how much it costs to sell a business? When choosing a business broker don’t forget to compare fees, which can vary greatly between agents. You’ll likely have to pay for advertising, financial advice and legal services separately unless they are included in the overall fee. Take a look at Hilton Smythe’s approach to selling your business.

If you think selling your business is the right move, get in touch with our friendly advisors who can help you with the next step in selling your hair salon.
