Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Mirage Hair Beauty & Tanning.
Mirage Hair Beauty & Tanning was founded by the current owner 2 years ago but is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to relocation to her original country of origin.
Mirage Hair Beauty & Tanning is a well-equipped Beauty salon that offers;
•Stand up sun beds
•Lie down sun beds
•Vibr8 oscillation training.
The current owner employed staff to run the business for her until recently but due to personal circumstances has let the staff go so the business is currently offering only the stand up and lie down sunbed tanning and the Vibr8 oscillation training.
This represents a fantastic opportunity perhaps for an experienced hairdresser or barber looking for their first foray into self-employment.

The business is being sold as an asset sale, but the tanning side of the business is currently generating an advised turnover of approximately £20,000 but it needs to be stressed that it is being run at a pace to suit due to personal circumstances.
