In 1959, Takara Belmont first arrived in London and now, 60 years later it was fitting this anniversary should see the grand unveiling of the Japanese brand’s new-look London showroom. 

Last week, BarberNV, SalonNV and a select gathering of the UK media and industry associations were to be invited to Takara Belmont’s London HQ to celebrate a most auspicious birthday, tour the new state-of-the-art showroom and indulge in luxury treatments and hairstyling—the centrepiece being the Yume head-spa! 

Representing the pinnacle of technical innovation, guests were treated to the ultimate VIP experience before finding refreshment at the pop-up cocktail bar. 

Alongside an elegant flower wall and mouth-watering buffet, the event proved to be a great success, leaving everyone informed, pampered and gastronomically content. 

Setting the scene, managing director Mr Hoshina extended a warm welcome and expressed his appreciation for the media guests’ continued support.  

In his speech Mr Hoshina highlighted the significance of the anniversary, touching on the company’s journey and evolution, and Takara Belmont’s major accomplishments that have culminated in the brand’s global position and offering in the 21st century. 

Cari-Anne Rawlinson, Takara Belmont’s hairdressing marketing executive said, “We were delighted to welcome our guests and immerse them in a Takara Belmont experience.  

“Their response to the new showroom, the treatments and our equipment was very positive.  

“We look forward to building on our heritage and introducing more ground-breaking equipment in the future.  

“The support of our guests and our relationships with the media and key industry organisations is so valuable.  

“This event gave us an opportunity to thank them and show our gratitude.”
