Spa Esprit Group to open 15 UK salons by 2019
Singapore-owned salon and retail group Spa Esprit Group has announced plans to open 15 salons across the UK by 2019. The group will open these new salons under its specialist brands Ministry of Waxing and Browhaus. The majority of salons will be dual branded, focusing on hair removal under the Ministry of Waxing brand and on brow and lash treatments at Browhaus. Presently, the group has 42 Ministry of Waxing and 30 Browhaus salons internationally, including three in the UK, all in London. Spa Esprit is also aiming at spreading its foothold across other European cities including Berlin and Paris. The group’s salons are run either as joint ventures or by franchisees.
Cynthia Chua, Managing Director, Spa Esprit said, “London is exciting location because I think if you’re really good in Asia then, you need to be competing in London and New York. We started slow in London in 2009. Now, the operations are really solid and in Singapore, we can move here and grow things much more quickly.”
Singapore-based Spa Esprit Group has two specialist brands Ministry of Waxing and Browhaus under its belt. Ministry of Waxing specialised in offering waxing and hair removal treatments began its operations from Singapore in 2002. Browhaus, a one-stop brow and lash grooming salon, opened in 2004 in Singapore. The brand is specialized in brow grooming services like eyebrow threading, tweezing and thread & tweeze as well as our signature semi-permanent treatment, brow resurrection, etc. Currently, Browhaus has its presence in Singapore, London, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Manila, Jakarta and Bangkok.
