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

I was sent the John Frieda Sheer Blonde HI Impact Shampoo & Conditioner to test and review.   This range was created to give over processed hair new life, restoring blonde hair’s healthy, vivid hues.    Safe for use on natural or colour-treated hair and for use on highlights & lowlights. Verdict: It smells really wonderful, cleans well, and not only does my hair colour look good (vibrant blonde), it also feels really soft, and manageable, which was an added bonus.     Two thumbs up!   Available at Clicks – R110 each

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
