Everybody needs some TLC every now and then. So why not spend the day getting your hair done, nails treated, and perhaps even spoil yourself with new additions to your perfume collection. Canal Walk can cover you from head to toe with health, hair, and beauty salons that you’ll love and that will leave you feeling like a brand new you.
Life isn’t perfect, but your hair can be
Let’s start at the top. A fresh new cut is the best way to get the excitement bubbling when creating this “brand new you”. But, we know how difficult it is to find the right salon that knows what they’re doing and can guarantee that they’ll give you exactly what you’re looking for. Although you’re spoiled for choice with hair and beauty salons in Cape Town, Canal Walk has a few that are sure to blow your hair back.
Carlton Hair and their staff are a group of versatile hair stylists with extensive training, ensuring that they can provide their customers with consistent, quality hair treatments. They make use of only the best and most innovative styling equipment in order to deliver quality results. Even if you have no idea what changes you would like to make to your look, consult with a Carlton Hair stylist – you can trust in their trained and experienced staff to help you transform your look.
Carlton Hair is also running a Wednesday special until 30 April 2019. For only R500, receive a cut, blow dry, colour and treatment...and you get to go home with any Davines Essential Haircare shampoo!
Partners Hair Design is another fantastic hair salon that is renowned for their quality service standards and their team of highly-qualified stylists that love to help you look and feel good. Partners have also opened a branch specifically suited to men so they can enjoy a bit of grooming as well.
Although the “TLC” we speak of often ends up being quite costly, this salon is offering treatment specials on Thursdays and Fridays. Until the end of June, you can receive a colour, cut, treatment, and style for R895, or a L’Oreal shampoo, conditioner, massage and styling for R190 on Fridays. Now that’s a deal you can’t find anywhere else!
Totally nailing it
Are you a nail-biter, or do you work hard just to hide your toes from everyone? Well, it doesn’t matter because service with a smile is what Sorbet is all about. Take yourself to the Canal Walk branch and enjoy one, or even a few of their many treatments. Whether you’re in dire need of a pedicure or if your legs require some scaping, Sorbet therapists are always happy to help. And don’t forget to invest in a Sorbet face mask on the way out!
Divas Nails is a more affordable nail and beauty salon offering a variety of services. They specialise in manicures, pedicures, waxing, threading and even ear piercings. Whatever it is that you may need, the divas at Divas Nails are always more than happy to provide you with advice and quality service to help you take care of your skin and beauty requirements.
Beautiful from the outside in
Taking care of your skin should be a priority, especially considering how often you’re exposed to the sun and how much effort is put into your make-up routines. We believe that we should all be grateful for our skin, and we have the perfect beauty stores to help you maintain that healthy skin-care regimen.
L’Occitane en Provence has its very own store in Canal Walk and is a brand known for providing the highest-quality skin-care products, body lotions, and perfumes. Based on the foundations of aromatherapy and phytotherapy, you can make sure you’re feeding your skin with all things lovely.
Additionally, LUSH Cosmetics has risen to the top of the beauty chain with its natural, organic, handmade range of body, hair, and skin-care products. You’ll know once you’ve reached this store because you can smell the aroma of their products from a mile away! From bath bombs to body scrubs, hair treatments, and melt-in-your-hand body creams, LUSH is renowned for their creative and innovative take on cosmetics.
Outer beauty means nothing if you aren’t beautiful on the inside
Now that we’ve covered everything on the outside, it’s important to consider how to take care of what’s within. Paramount to our wellbeing are the things we consume that affect our daily bodily functions. Sometimes, our bodies lack general nutrients, or we battle with deficiencies that sometimes mean we need more of some nutrients than others.
Health stores such as Dischem and Clicks offer many solutions. As comprehensive self-medication centres that provide supplements, daily vitamins and minerals, as well as other products, these stores are dedicated to helping you take care of your general well-being. Of course, they also offer family clinic services with in-store medical dispensaries for all your medical needs.
Clicks Clinics also offer a wide range of services stretching from vaccinations, blood pressure testing, counseling, and more.
Take some time, at least once per month, to take care of everything that makes you the best you. Self-care is totally necessary in the demanding world we live in today. Space yourself away from the ins-and-outs of full-time jobs, parenting, and adulting. You deserve a break and you know it.
