I just love my new hairdo! A couple of weeks ago I saw an ad in one of our local Facebook groups advertising half-head hair highlights, treatment and a haircut for only R600 (on special) by Ruan, at Hidden Beauty in Centurion (Gauteng). As I was due for a haircut, and also some colour – be it a few highlights or just plain dye – I decided to get in touch and book for an appointment!
I booked to go in on Saturday morning. I was quite excited to finally get my new hairdo. Even though I’d had a haircut a couple of weeks earlier, my hair was thickening quite a bit, especially at the nape of my neck, and I was looking forward to getting rid of some of that heavy weight.
So I arrived at the salon by 10. The salon is situated at a small shopping centre, on the corner of Jean Avenue and South Street in Centurion (Gauteng). There is ample parking available. All the staff were friendly and polite, and I was offered a cup of coffee as soon as I walked through the door.
In fact, the entire experience from start to finish was excellent. The first time with a new hairdresser is usually stressful and you tend to sit on pins & needles, but Ruan was insightful and patient as we discussed my hair, my choice of colour and what kind of haircut I would like that day. I felt at ease.
I chose a lighter shade of brown for my half head highlights. The shampoo and my treatment afterwards were relaxing. In fact, I absolutely loved my treatment! It had such a lovely smell! And now that I’ve had my new hairdo for about a week, my hair still feels soft and looks shiny even though it has just been dyed.
But I was most impressed with my haircut though. My hair can be difficult to work with as it is quite thick, and I usually need to have a whole lot of hair layered and thinned out so that it is manageable for me afterwards. This is probably the most important thing for me, and I appreciated that Ruan really took his time with my haircut. I had the confidence that he really knows what he is doing from start to finish. A lot of hair came off… which is exactly what I wanted. It was heavily layered and beautifully styled.
All in all, I was so happy with my highlights, treatment and haircut that I’ve booked to have my hair done by Ruan again in December. I can’t wait for another awesome hairdo!
If you’d like to book for an appointment, contact Ruan via his Facebook page and take advantage of this special offer – half-head highlights, treatment and cut and blow for R600 – until the end of October (2019).
