Takara Belmont: Industry icon turns 60 years old

There are some brands that manage to be both mainstays and pioneers, and Takara Belmont is one of them. It was back in 1959 when London, the epicentre of fashion, first welcomed the Japanese company to its cultural playground. Following the launch of the now-famous Apollo chair, Takara Belmont installed itself as a trailblazer and icon in the barbering world.

“Our mission was, and still is, to deliver equipment that exceeds the needs and expectations of hairdressers and customers, whether it supports the service and technical demands of the stylist, or the customers’ desire for comfort, luxury and unsurpassed service outcomes,” says Katie Wrighton, territory sales manager at Takara Belmont. “We also intended to transcend fashion by creating classically designed equipment that fits seamlessly into any interior situation. The longevity of many of our products are testimony to this achievement.”

The introduction of innovative base options, customisable features and upholstery has led to the development of Apollo 2 Elite and Apollo 2 Icon, as well as the Adria II Styling Chair, the Rollerball-F Processor, the Foldaway Basin, Motorised Chairs and the Yume Shampoo System.

We look forward to what comes next and wish Takara Belmont a very happy 60th birthday!
