Get Connected: Takara Belmont Returns to Barber Connect this June

June 01, 2017

Following an award-winning debut, we are gearing up for our second year at Barber Connect later this month, showcasing a selection of our barbering legends, offering interiors advice, inspiration and exclusive show only offers, as well as hosting barbering demonstrations throughout the two day exhibition. 

As Europe’s largest dedicated barber exhibition, Barber Connect will see thousands of professionals travel to the events new home, The International Centre in Telford, on the 11th and 12th of June. We are excited to be welcoming some of those professionals to our stand, N3, with confirmed live demonstrations from the charismatic Garry Jackson of Garry’s Barbers in Belfast and one-to-watch Lieanne Buckley. Be sure to check in to our social media channels in the run up to the exhibition as we announce additions to our stand lineup. 

Also joining us over the weekend will be a collection of our traditional barbering classics including the Apollo 2 family, Dainty and Legacy 95 chairs, as well as the Aubrey Barbering Station. Barbers will have the opportunity to discover a new addition to the brands portfolio, launching later this year. Alongside the barbering portfolio, our stand will also host the Halo Series and other core styling chairs, allowing barbers to experience a wider variety of products depending on their salon interior and vibe.

“Exhibitions are a great way for us to showcase a selection of our products and gage the reaction to upcoming launches, whilst the salon owners get to experience and test our our furniture and equipment first hand, ” says Takara Belmont’s Cari-Anne Rawlinson. “We understand that salon furniture is a large and important investment consideration for any salon owner which is why our team are on hand to give advice on the best options for their salon or to answer any technical or cosmetic questions they might have”. 

This year’s exhibition will also see the launch of Modern Barber LIVE, which will host over 60 barbers over the weekend showcasing their talents. We are pleased to be partnering with Modern Barber Magazine to supply five Apollo chairs - an iconic symbol of barbering since 1961. 

With all of this and so much more, there’s plenty of reasons to visit Barber Connect this June! We’ll see you on stand N3!

Introducing the Apollo 2 Icon: The Evolution of a Barbering Icon Continues

November 04, 2016

The Apollo 2 has become an international symbol of barbering since its introduction in 1961. Its combination of timeless style, traditional features and unrivalled build quality has seen this chair grace barbershops and salons all over the world, delivering decades of eye-catching style and uninterrupted performance.

In 2013, Takara Belmont famously collaborated with Bentley to create a show-stopping Apollo 2 with quilted upholstery and white diamond stitching, capturing the imaginations of barbers the world over. Since then, this chair has toured the globe, garnering popularity for its discerning features and gentlemanly style. As barbering continues to evolve and grow, there has been a rise in luxury barbershops and prestige male grooming establishments and the demand for chairs with distinction has become stronger than ever. Recognising this, Takara Belmont extends the Apollo 2 dynasty, introducing the Apollo 2 Icon

Featuring a handsome quilted upholstery with white diamond-stitching and optional contrasting piping, the new Apollo 2 Icon has been elegantly restyled, and is the latest addition to the iconic Apollo 2 collection. Classic features remain; its timeless design, unmistakable style, robust structure and distinctive footplate are unchanged. 

Available in a wide range of upholstery colours, the Apollo 2 Icon can be customised to perfectly complement your salon or barbershop interior, whilst traditional features including the integrated ashtray and shaving bowl add an authentic touch. Choose from a traditional hydraulic base or the new MTR2 motorised base, which delivers optimum access and manoeuvrability for the stylist or barber. 

Discover the Apollo 2 Icon online today, or call us on 020 7515 0333 or email hairdressing@takara.co.uk for more information.
