This attractive business was opened in 2007 and is a partnership which started as a simple nail salon and has now become one of the premier beauty businesses in Bucks. The salon offers a wide range of soft beauty treatments such as waxing, eyelash extensions, massage, nails, pedicures and spray tanning together with more advanced treatments such as laser hair removal, Medik8 Facials and body contouring treatments.
Very well located in the centre of a busy and affluent Buckinghamshire market town, the salon offers a superb customer service and over the years has grown to be an important part of the community. Customers love the many treatment experiences the salon offers. All treatments are provided by highly skilled and very well trained, professional beauty therapists.
The real power and energy of the salon comes from the attentive and courteous service provided by the staff and the high levels of customer service and satisfaction they generate.
Not surprisingly, the salon enjoys a good level of patronage and enjoys a high percentage of repeat custom. There are a total of 11,700 client records on the company database, with in excess of 600 new clients seeking out services every year with more than 1,600 visiting the salon in a 12 month period.
The average appointment value is £49 and staff utilisation is around 80%. Presently the salon has 3 full time staff and 2 part time. All staff are professionally qualified and insured.
The target market for the salon is very much the affluent residents of this busy town and its nearby villages and towns.
The business has all the equipment needed to operate in this sector and uses specialist salon software systems for client booking and management, including online booking and mobile app.
This opportunity is an ideal business for anyone looking to establish a foothold in the health and beauty sector or for someone already in the sector looking for a strongly performing, additional outlet to bolt on to their existing business. There is plenty of scope to enhance the higher value aesthetic offer with a captive client database.
One important strategic asset relates to the business’ hair removal offer which utilises the Alma Soprano Laser which is regarded as the premier laser within its class and price. It is widely sought by potential clients who are happy to travel for treatment.
The salon is an excellent location on the second floor of a character building which offers an ideal level of privacy and discretion. Public parking is very adjacent.
The salon is supported by a professionally built website as well as a Facebook page which means the salon traditionally hasn’t needed to spend vast sums on marketing, rather benefitting from its reputation and referrals. Time is spent ensuring that the salon is found at the top of Google for all related beauty searches.
The company receives outstanding feedback on all aspects of the business, from premises, comfort and style, quality and value of the treatments and of course the brilliant therapists.
