A few days ago I was invited to try out Furr Hair, a hair salon situated in the heart of Cape Town. If you haven’t heard of Furr Hair before, let me get you up to speed. This salon offers skilled stylists that are dedicated to providing their clients with the highest level of service. They house a team of dynamic hairdressers with years of experience in this industry. Their stylists are up-to-date with the latest trends and pride themselves on giving their clients their absolute best. Among other things, Furr Hair is known for its excellent colour work, beautiful Brazilian Blowouts and the highest standard of hair extensions. The passion and excellence of their stylists is depicted in all of the work that they produce.
Upon arrival, I was kindly greeted by the receptionist and my stylist at the front desk. She then showed me to my seat. Before getting down to business, we started off with a consultation. Megan and I had a pretty in-depth discussion as to how we should go about achieving the hair colour and cut that I wanted, taking into account many factors of my facial features to ensure the right choice. My hair was looking dull and boring so I was in need of a change, but nothing to drastic. (I wanted to keep my hair length pretty much the same.) So, I was looking to do caramel highlights, a trim on my layers and the length.
After our chat, it was now time to apply the bleach and wait for it to do it’s thing. The whole process took around an hour to complete, (long but totally worth it!). After that, she took me to the backwash to rinse off the bleach, and wash my hair. While the conditioner was on, I had the most delightful scalp massage (you have to admit, it’s the best part about going to salon). After, my hair was rinsed, and ready for cutting.
She trimmed my layers and my length, then blow dried my hair and finished off with some awesome curls. My hair looked incredible! My hair is even more manageable now and it is also more tamable. It was exactly what I wanted. You can check out the image below.
My final thoughts? I’m so glad I visited Furr Hair. The atmosphere was inviting and friendly. Megan is truly an amazing stylist. Her creative flair and attention to detail simply cannot be matched. What I love most about Furr Hair is that it’s cozy. It almost feels like home. I find at other salons, that I feel very much like another number, another chair. In Furr Hair, every customer is treated like a friend – not “just another customer” and that will make your experience even more special. With that said, I highly recommend Furr Hair.
