Despite the cold wind, whipping rain and other various weather-flavoured shenanigans rampant in the Cape Town sky, spring is here and people everywhere are revamping their homes, cars and anything else they can shake a feather-duster at. While it’s great to restack the bookcase and toss a new throw over your couch, only the people who visit your home will see the efforts of your spring-cleaning. Make sure everyone notices with today’s Groupon; spring-clean your hairstyle and save up to 60% on a wash, cut and blow-dry with optional treatment.
Highly trained in beautifying bedraggled locks, the über-stylists at Stellenbosch’s The Hair Theatre know to turn a winter-coat into something more summer-suitable. Like any trip to the hairdresser, you’ll start off with a wash that’s more like a head-massage than anything. While you relax into the feeling of soothing fingers on your scalp, you can marvel at the fact that getting your hair washed by a stylist always leaves it about eight times cleaner – or you can just admire the scenery and let your mind wander. Once you’re squeaky clean, decide what sort of style you want you strands snipped into. Whether you’re just trimming away the split-ends or going for something completely new, the stylists know their way around a pair of scissors and can create a mane-masterpiece on top of your head that no one will want to ruffle. Once you’ve been kitted out with a chic new do, ensure its continued flair and panache with a treatment to keep it shiny, glossy and luxurious enough to feature in hair-commercials. Considering that straightening, daily abuse and harsh climate can play havoc with your hair, the treatment can help to restore some life to lacklustre locks.
Not even the most couture cut looks its best when it’s soaked in H20 and hanging limp on top of your head, so you’ll finish off your styling with a blow-dry to bring it back to life and give it some pizazz. Once that’s done, you’ll be ready to hit the streets and prove how into the spring-cleaning business you really are.
Trend-setting Fact: Through a rather unfortunate accident, hairstylists at New York Fashion Week created a totally new hairstyle. When one of the stylists tripped while carrying a plate of snacks, the plate of cupcakes landed on one of the models, covering her tresses in icing and crumbs. As they had no time to clean her up before her run on the catwalk, she went as-is and the covered-in-food look became an instant hit.
