Takara Belmont Interviews Mike Taylor...

January 28, 2018

We interviewed Mike Taylor from Bonds Barbershop on how he protects his cash flow and manages equipment investments from Takara Belmont's flexible leasing options across the entire range. For barbershop owners looking for a complete renovation, take advantage of our beneficial purchasing options to upgrade your services and expand your offering. Equipment leasing can be an effective way to access high price furnishings that your business needs to flourish without the initial capital outlay, saving your cash for rent, stock, training and other daily expenses. Spread the cost of your equipment purchases over a period of time for a more tax efficient way to manage your assets. With many leasing options available, design your agreement to suit your business needs claiming ownership at the end of your settlement. Mike Taylor, founder of Bonds Barbershop and barber of 27 years says ‘Belmont chairs unbeatably stand the test of time with unsurpassed quality and attention to detail for optimum client comfort. Leasing has enabled me to conserve my cash flow and budget effectively, knowing I can spread the cost over a period of time to ensure I can afford to kit my barbershop with the best barber chairs in the business’.

Bonds Barbershop features Takara Belmont’s hero grooming chair, the Apollo 2, a supremely industrious iconic stalwart of the barber industry that has captured the imagination of barbers and continued to dominate global interiors. Its timeless design available in a variety of customisable options, features 360° lockable rotation with a synchronised reclining backrest and raising footrest for ultimate luxury and interior style. Japanese heat pressed or stitch sewn upholstery combined with its cast-iron metalwork enhances its built for quality, reliability and comfort, delivering decades of uninterrupted service. 

An iconic design that spans beyond the world of barbering, the Apollo 2 is a must have for the heart of every barbershop. With an array of leasing options, reach your business’ full potential whilst fulfilling your clients desires, providing them with long-standing premium service. Taylor says ‘the best part about leasing is that it allows you to stay up to date with the latest advances in equipment and technology innovation to ensure you are at the cutting edge of your industry’. Recognising the benefits of leasing to manage your equipment investments is a fundamental to achieving your dreams, discover more at www.takarahairdressing.co.uk

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.
