A Fascination With Technical Transformation

Japan’s fascination with electronics, robotics and all things technological places it at the very pinnacle of global innovation. Emerging technologies over many decades have been pioneered as a result of this nation’s obsession with the yet-to-be-invented, and its determination to transform everyday functional products into multi-functional experiences that enhance, simplify and enrich our lives. 

Where Takara Belmont is concerned, barbershops, men's grooming establishments and hairdressing salons are no exception. Over a Century of evolution, transformative technological advances have been developed and applied to chairs and equipment that have contributed to the modernisation and advancement of the global hair, barbering and beauty industry.

In 1962, Takara Belmont introduced the world’s first motorised grooming chair - the Model 808. At the time, its price tag may have positioned it in the realm of more prestigious salons and grooming establishments, but it initiated what Takara Belmont has continued to do ever since - set new precedents for technology driven salon equipment. 

This new generation of chair transformed salon and barbershop experiences for stylists and clients and moved equipment into a new era of conceptual thinking and manufacturing know-how that permanently altered the definition of customer care.

Now, in our Centenary year, Takara Belmont continues to lead the world in motorised chairs and equipment.
