Bonsai maintenance is a tricky business, involving constant trimming, pruning, watering and adding just the right amount of nutrients. Luckily, looking after the finicky plants is a specialised hobby and most people can just take it or leave it. If your finicky follicles really were the bush they sometimes resembled, the perfect no-fuss way to keep it livelier than a basket full of gambolling kittens would be saving up to 55% on treatments and styling at Yemaya Hair and Spa.
Named after the African goddess of the ocean, Yemaya lives up to its moniker with its soothing soundtrack of natural sea-sounds and seaside location, making its first-class stylists the first to know when the tide brings in new trends.
Whether you’re treating your locks to some colour-lift or a bit of Paul Mitchell flavoured healing, you’ll start off your session with the staples of styling; a wash, cut and blow-dry. Highly trained in the art of creating couture coifs with ease, you can leave your mane in the more than qualified hands of Yemaya’s stylists and go to your happy-place. With a few experienced flicks of the scissors, they can give you a trim, get rid of split ends or give you the asymmetrical bob you’ve been eyeing in the glossies.
Then it’s time to decide whether your hair needs flair or care. The favourite hair treatment of glossy-page editors everywhere, Paul Mitchell can repair, moisturise and condition those stressed strands, leaving them glossy and healthier than they say an apple a day could make you. The special formulation also leaves your hair with its own set of armour, protecting it from damage and stopping the tips from splitting under the pressure of constant styling.
If you’re more the flair type, a half-head of highlights can give your colour a bit of that I’ve been at the beach lift which is always so popular in the summer months. Unlike college students, the experienced stylists won’t highlight everything, ensuring your hair doesn’t look too textbook.
Considering not even the most couture cut looks its best when it’s soaked in H20 and a hanging limp on top of your head, finish off with a blow-dry to bring it back to life and give it some pizazz and you’ll leave Yemaya feeling like the goddess the salon is named after.
Hair-raising Fact: Archaeologists in Nepal recently unearthed a 3000 year old bottle of shampoo. Analysis of the hair-tonic indicates that it contains mostly chips of charred wood, milk and a selection of herbs such as deadly-nightshade now known to be quite poisonous.
