In the lead up to my sister’s wedding the one thing I really needed to get ‘done’ was my hair. I’m sure you remember my ombre hair post a while back which I have now got over but been struggling to get rid of it properly and my colour I had put in 3 months ago had faded, meaning the ombre was making its second appearance…
I booked an appointment with the lovely ladies at Tosca Hair Salon as they had offered me an appointment and I’m always open to trying new hair salons. I went to the Tygervalley branch (a first for me visiting this shopping centre) but was super-convenient as they are open 7 days a week, so Sunday morning suited me perfectly.
My stylist was Verenique and she couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating. We decided to put in a semi-permanent colour and a treatment from Kerastase (always a treat!). Verenique chose the colour and with my limited hairdressing knowledge I trusted her on this one.
The colour could not have been a better match and added great shine to my hair, so much so that I made her write it down so I can stick to it going forward. I had quite a long chat to Verenique about the products they stock in the salon as they really do have a very wide range which I really liked as they are able to give an unbiased suggestion as to what you should use – selecting from only the very best hair care brands.
Following my incredible scalp massage (post Whacky Wine Festival, so you can only imagine) I had a cut and blow dry – to my relief the ombre was gone and my hair feels healthier and shinier than it has looked in quite some time.
|Excuse the awkward angle of me but you get an idea of the colour here.|
Every single person I met at the salon was warm and chatty which I really liked as I find so many Cape Town salons are quite snooty, unless you are a real local. Tosca also has a beauty salon upstairs, which is great if you wanting to do your nails at the same time – they offer a wide variety of treatments.
