I’ve just come back from my appointment at Style Bar in Constantia and have to share their latest specials with you.   Firstly, I was treated to the nak ultimate treatment 60 sec repair, which is amazing. The main reason I tend to skip treatments at home is because you have to leave it in for so long, and with the water restrictions we’re having in Cape Town, that’s just not manageable. So this is an absolute must have item as it works in 60 seconds and leaves your hair super soft.      Right now, you can choose from any of the following Luxury Highlights or Colour Promotion:   Short tint cut and blow R990 Long tint cut and blow R1190 1/2 highlight cut and blow R1190 Full highlight cut and blow R1390   All the above specials include the nak treatment at the basin, plus a full retail size to takeRead More

Last week I dashed off to Style Bar Constantia again for a much needed hair pamper session, and as always I was drawn to the funky new Tangle Teezers as well as some fun gift sets that look pretty amazing.   I’m such a fan of the Tangle Teezer that I have several in different shapes and sizes and have gifted a few as well. As Feb is the month of lurve, these pink Tangle Angels really stood out.                            These little mini ‘nano’ invisibobbles are amazing for up do’s instead of using pins.    I also wanted to mention and give a shout out to Style Bar for using EcoHeads in all the salons, which basically reduces water usage by 56% but still gives you a powerful spray for a good wash.    Style Bar  For moreRead More

I recently heard about a new treatment called the Micro Keratin Treatment and wondered how this compared to other keratin treatments and the Brazilian Blowdry.   The main benefit that I could find is that there is no formaldehyde in the Micro Keratin Treatment so you won’t be breathing in any of those bad fumes.  Intrigued to find out more, I asked the experts at Style Bar & Micro Keratin to answer a few questions.    What’s the main difference between Brazilian Blowdry and Micro Keratin Treatment ? MK works with a much smaller Keratin particle that has the ability to work deeper into the hair and at the same time deposit more of them into the hair strand. This results in hair that is much more repaired soft and smoother making it much easier to style and maintain a style. Its similar to a Brazilian but the technology allowsRead More

Every couple of months I have the pleasure of visiting Style Bar in Constantia for my hair fix, and I have to admit that this is truly one of my very guilty pleasures.    Sharing a bottle of wine with a good friend is one of the best feel good moments I can think of, and having my hair done comes a close second.   I always enjoy having a squizz at some of the new products they bring in and I thought I’d share some of these with you. Love my colour! After some chit chat and catching up on a few magazine articles, I was ready to head back to my normal day of fetching kids and making lunches. It was fun to feel like a schmodel for a few hours anyway..   Style Bar For more info visit: Website: http://www.stylebar.co.za/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/stylebarsa Twitter: https://twitter.com/stylebarsa

What To Ask Your Hairdresser

I’m sure you’ve all had to go through that super annoying process of finding a new GP, hair dresser etc,when you move to a new place.   Luckily we now have social media to check on who’s who in your new local area, avoiding making too many mistakes along the way.   Even though I was adamant that I would drive back to visit my hairdresser, I eventually did cave and decide to find someone local.   After a few attempts we finally found my ‘goldilocks’ colour (not too dark and not too light), but I was thinking that I could have helped speed up this process if I’d paid more attention and known more about what had been used on my hair previously.   So, I decided to ask my current stylist at Style Bar in Constantia Village what we should know to ensure a smooth transition from one stylist toRead More

I’ve been visiting Style Bar in Constantia for a few months, and I recently got the chance to try out their Palmyra branch.   Once again the salon was busy with clients popping in for product advise or just to say ‘Hi’ to their stylist.   My stylist was super fast and I left with extra time on my hands, which was an added bonus.   As my hair was pretty dry after the Summer, she advised to add a treatment. The Schwarzkopf BC Bonscure Power Shot Repair Concentrate did absolute wonders to my hair, which is now soft and bouncy and looking so much healthier.     If you haven’t had a treatment before, then your hair is missing out on some serious pampering. So here’s your chance to spoil yourself and your mom as well.   You can WIN a Treatment and Blow Dry for you and yourRead More

Time To Visit Style Bar

After the holidays and a crazy start to the new year, I was desperate to visit Style Bar again and give my hair some much needed attention.   Nicole booked me in with a new stylist who lives in my area, so we quickly started chatting about our local neighbourhood.   Style Bar is always busy with customers popping in just to say ‘hi’ and catch up with their stylists and friends.   They have loads of products in store too, so if you’re looking for a top salon brand, you’re sure to find it there, or on their online shop Retail Box    I decided to go back to blonde for Summer so we ditched the low lights and only added highlights this time.   I spent the time waiting for my highlights to take, catching up with fellow blogger Kathryn Rossiter, who was there having her hair done as well.  Read More

Best New Hair Salon In Southern Suburbs

Marios in action in Greenpoint

I’m not sure if this happens to you, but usually my husband never notices my hair even when I’ve just returned from the hair dresser.   I’ve been away for several hours and I’ve told him where I’m going, but most often, on return, there’s the usual ‘Hey’ and life carries on as normal.   There’s always the exception to the rule and today I managed to find it.   Yip, returning from having my hair done by none other than Marios, at his new hair salon in Constantiaberg, the first thing out of my husband’s mouth was “Wow, your hair looks really great!”   Jaw drop!     Having a very successful and established salon in Greenpoint, Marios and Barry decided to expand and opened their 2nd salon in Constantiaberg. Now all you lucky ladies in the Southern Suburbs can enjoy the spectacular service by Marios and the otherRead More
