Takara Belmont Turns 100 Years-Old

no comments

This year is a big one for Takara Belmont, as it joins a select group of iconic hairdressing brands that have reached their Centenary. 


Takara Belmont began in Osaka, Japan in 1921 and has gone on to be one of the most innovative and progressive brands within the industry.


From day one, Takara Belmont set out to define global salon experiences through innovative furniture and equipment design. It set upon a mission to create and apply new and groundbreaking technologies that would elevate both the customer and stylist experience.


From high street to high-end luxury, from everyday salons and barbershops to the extraordinary, and from the unsung heroes to industry icons such as Trevor Sorbie and Daniel Galvin, Takara Belmont has helped shape British and International hairdressing, barbering and beauty.



The evolution of Takara Belmont from a small family-run business to a global player that exerts influence across the international salon market is not over yet!


Takara Belmont believes in continual progress that respects the past, mirrors the present and anticipates the future. In the last decade alone, it has brought more furniture, backwash equipment, space-saving solutions, service options and innovations designed for every salon owner in every salon space and scenario. Salon owners can customise equipment to complement their brand, introduce new ideas and expand service options to deliver exceptional treatments to their clients. 


With the appointment in July 2020 of new UK Managing Director, Stephen Price, the Takara Belmont vision continues to be felt on a worldwide scale. Promoted after 23 years with the company, Stephen’s appreciation of the heritage and culture of Takara Belmont coupled with a deep understanding of the UK and European market will see the company stride into the future with confidence and optimism, despite a year of unprecedented turmoil for the industry. 


Stephen Price: “We intended to transform hairdressing, barbering and beauty and although we’ve achieved so much, our mission to deliver equipment and services that exceed the expectations of hairdressers and barbers, and their customers remains constant. The longevity of many of our products are testimony to what has been accomplished so far and we will add to our heritage as we look forward to the next 100 years!”
