A specialist children's hairdresser in Warwickshire has been put on the market. Mopp Heads in Leamington Spa is on sale for £29,995.

The salon has a renowned reputation amongst residents and was founded by the current owner in 2016 when he identified a gap in the market. The salon has since acquired many regular customers.

The business is now being sold due to the owners' wish to enjoy a 'well-earned retirement'. He is keen to see the salon pass to an 'ambitious and entrepreneurial' new owner to take the thriving business to 'the next level'.

The salon has been praised online for being an 'excellent experience' for children's first time having a haircut. Maria Coatham said: "Mike did an amazing job with our daughter's first haircut. He made her feel comfortable and her hair is now amazingly curly and so bouncy."

Another satisfied customer added: "I took my 16-month-old son for his first hair cut and Mike was brilliant! He made Isaac feel at ease and when he was getting restless Mike took his time to show him a wide variety of toys he had available to help keep him entertained. I would definitely recommend Mopp Heads."

There are scopes in the business to improve the advertising and marketing campaigns, maximise the use of social media and website, employ an additional stylist and apprentice, extend the opening hours, and introduce children's make-up parties.

In terms of reasons to buy, the listing states the salon has low running costs with inexpensive rents and no business rates, little or no competition locally with the current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success. The 'ideal' owner should be someone who has managed or had a partnership in a business.

Mopp Heads is located just off the main shopping centre in Leamington Spa, which benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade. The business is nicely presented and maintained with clear visible signage and distinctive livery, with free on-street parking close to the premises.

The salon occupies the ground floor of a period-style property which includes:


Two hair stations each with chair mirror and electrical sockets and sofa for waiting customers.

Store Room

Useful store room offering the potential to convert to a treatment room, tongue, and groove wood panelling to ceiling.

Vestibule Area

Vinyl tile effect flooring, plumbing for washing machine.

Mopp Heads is being sold as a leasehold. The existing lease is arranged on a monthly rolling basis, with the landlord happy to negotiate a mutually acceptable lease with the new owner. The current rent is £6760 per year and generates a current turnover of around £30,000 but the listing states the business is currently run at a 'pace to suit'.
