Business profile:
An internationally renowned school of make-up has come up for sale, creating an exciting opportunity for a buyer to enter this vibrant exciting industry. Established in 1990 by one of the leading figures in the make-up world, the school has gone on to train many of the top make-up artists working in the industry today.

Based in the capital and specialising in fashion make-up, the school runs a number of courses annually, between four and twelve weeks in length. The courses provide comprehensive training in all aspects of fashion make-up and provide the basis for a successful career in the industry. Small student/tutor ratios are guaranteed to ensure the highest standard of training.

At the end of the course students are presented with a diploma and full make-up kit. In addition to this, the school arranges three photo shoots with professional models and photographers, the results of which form the initial stage of the student’s portfolio. In this way, all students are given a head start in this highly competitive industry.

This profitable business has proved highly successful over the years and is now firmly established as a respected name in make-up world both in the U.K. and abroad. Numerous opportunities for expansion make this a highly appealing business opportunity and will be sure to attract a large amount of interest.
Facilities:The company currently occupies glass-fronted premises in London, which houses the make-up school. A basement below provides storage for stock. The first and second floor both house two offices. The premises are occupied on a ten-year lease expiring in 2015 when it will be available for renewal.
Competition:Many applications to the school are made on the basis of a widely recognised name and excellent reputation. This is something that was rapidly established and has continued to grow throughout the years as more and more past students go on to achieve success. In addition to this, advertising has been placed in both Vogue and Glamour. Google pay-per-click advertising has also been utilised. Very little investment in advertising and marketing will be required to maintain the current level of interest in the school. However, if the new owner chooses to investigate the possibilities offered by branching into the international market then a targeted advertising campaign will no doubt prove fruitful.
Growth Potential:The make-up industry is extremely healthy and continues to grow year on year. As one of the leading make-up schools, with a large amount of applications year on year, there are a number of opportunities for growth and expansion. The business is extremely flexible as all teaching staff are employed on a freelance basis. This arrangement will allow for the possibility of scheduling further course dates as demand continues to grow.
Training/Support:The current owner will provide all necessary training and handover to ensure a smooth transfer of the business to new owners. The owner has also stated that she will be available for ongoing consultancy if required.
