What's Good Cape Town?

5 signs that you've found a great hair salon (and stylist)

With all the hair dressers across the Mother City, it's hard finding a studio or specific stylist that you can stay faithful to and 'settle down' down with.

Well, Capetonians can take some tips from local Louise Myburgh, who says Absolut Hair studio in Claremont has been her go-to salon for the past five years.

5 signs you're with the perfect hair salon/stylist:

  • A salon with professional, knowledgeable and experienced stylists

  • A salon that always has happy and satisfied customers

  • A salon that uses quality hair care products and ranges

  • A salon with an apprenticeship programme to groom younger stylists

  • A salon with stylists that develop trusting hair relationships with clients
