Almost a Century of expertise has resulted in a salon proposition that goes beyond everything that meets the eye. When it comes to aesthetics, we have perfected the art of timeless style. Many of our chair and equipment designs have spanned the decades to remain contemporary despite ever-changing interior design trends and styles.
A world-class reputation
We have earned a reputation for world-class equipment that is stress-tested to ensure stringent quality standards are met. We are uncompromising when it comes to quality, as a global business with 100 offices worldwide, our reputation for unrivalled manufacturing quality, product performance and durability are values we uphold in every product. We are also revered for the application of world-leading technology, and this differentiates us from other equipment manufacturers.”
Transcending fashion is no easy feat. We formed in Japan in 1921, and our many products have changed very little visually. The Adria II styling chair, for example, was created in 1971 and remains our most popular hairdressing chair, whilst advances in technology and manufacturing have yielded subtle changes that enhance its appeal without tampering with the features that brought it global success.
The process of innovation
With the launch of our first ever barber char in 1940, the no. 130 marked the beginning of an era we became a global success and a must have for the heart of every interior. Dominating the industry, 2011 marked a year for innovation with the introduction of add on services that provided an almost seamless segue into the world of luxury and VIP treatments. Peerless when it comes to the application of motorised technology, the Rollerball F processor brought groundbreaking colour processing innovation to the world of hairdressing. Using infrared technology to power its distinctive rotating ring, Rollerball F reinvented colour processing time and intensifying colour results.
What lies behind every idea?
As a company, we recognise there has to be a commercial imperative. We stake our reputation on quality, of course, but also on helping salon owners become successful businesses too. Evidence of this approach rests in its Salon Design Service. Most owners have a vision, and idea or a concept for their salon. It’s a very individual, personal thing too. We promote the idea of working together in partnership with salon owners to bring their vision to life. But this goes beyond design. We incorporate service offerings into their plans and look at how to maximise commercial performance through smart equipment choices. We then create 2D and then 3D renders, from which the salon can work with architects and builders to bring their idea to fruition. It’s all part of a turnkey solution to support customers from concept to completion.
Equipment is more than choosing chairs, equipment or accessories. It’s recognising the long-term effects of making the right equipment decisions, appreciating the positive affect they have on the customer experience and salon incomes, and appreciating that equipment is an investment that pays dividends when approached in the right way. So, with a global presence that draws on interior and equipment design influences to shape new salon ideas and customer experiences, almost a Century of precision engineering invested in every Takara Belmont product, and a partnership-based service approach designed to help you on the road to success, perhaps it’s time to consider your next equipment decision?

Teaming up with Trend for Men Barbershop to bring you the latest equipment for your inspiring interiors, take a look at our latest interior case study.
Inspired by industrial, minimalist and clean looking interiors, Trend for Men barbershop is located down a busy suburban road in Hornchurch, Essex. A unique contemporary brand with an innovative modern interior, its design sets Trend for Men apart from your traditional barbershop. A sleek grey and white colour scheme and sublime interior choices give it a fresh, new look. With its concrete and stainless steel finishings, its industrial yet polished interior style is masculine and hardwearing. Their philosophical approach is focused on premium precision cutting techniques tailored to the individual, offering a relaxed and more personal experience. Priding themselves on good quality equipment and premium haircuts, they offer a range of barbering services with their most popular being their scissor cuts.
This requires greater manoeuvrability from a grooming chair so small and flexible interior furnishings are a necessity. Featuring 3 of Takara Belmont’s Dainty grooming chairs, the strikingly attractive and versatile grooming chair features 360º (lockable) rotation and a reclining backrest to ease your client into the most comforting position for their service. As a classic from Takara Belmont’s Traditional Collection, the Dainty also features an adjustable and removable headrest, upholstered padded armrests and a footrest. Aesthetically timeless, adding a premium touch to your barbershop, choose from a range of upholstery colours and customisable options including contrasting piping for a truly distinctive look. Upgrade to hydraulic or motorised base options to enhance the overall experience and assist in providing client services.
Trend for Men owner ‘Jordan Stead’ says ‘The Dainty chair is stylishly designed and well proportioned, perfect for a smaller barbershop. It’s great manoeuvrability and supreme comfort makes it a great piece of equipment for every barbershop’.
