Taken from the hugely successful new concept that represents affordable luxury and efficiency, Carlton Hair has now added yet another service to our offerings at selected salons:  a quick but professional dry blow and off you go. No appointment needed and no fuss. Just walk in and in no time you’re ready for that important meeting or your special night out!

In our new day and age with increasing deadlines and demands we find that we are always on the move and often do not find the time to get that perfect hair-do. Done ourselves at home in a rush it usually ends in one big hair disaster.

Our Blow Dry Specialists have been trained day in and day out to perform the most professional looks in no time with the help of It Factor® – the first haircare line formulated to save drying and styling time. It Factor ® products contain superior conditioning and detangling ingredients which allow for quicker styling. Drying time is reduced by VaporBoost which speeds up the natural process of evaporation. Furthermore, It Factor® products are safe for all hair types, free of all harsh alcohols, sulfates, sodium chloride and parabens.

We have narrowed down the most popular and trendy hairstyles from our very own style experts; namely:
  • Straight & Sleek
  • Straight with Body
  • Beachy Hair
  • Bouncy Curves and
  • Red Carpet Waves
at only R150 each* *Includes wash

For those on the go who always want to look their best, packages are available:
  • Buy 6 and get 1 free for only R900
  • Buy 9 and get 2 free for only R1350
  • Buy 12 and get 3 free for only R1800

Our loyal clients get 1 free blow dry for every 10 blow dries performed. Look out for our brochures in-store to take advantage of special discounts and offers.

The initial roll-out will take place in the form of a “salon within a salon” in which the concept will initially rely on Carlton Hair’s longstanding reputation, allowing it to create the exposure necessary in order to catapult it into the South African luxury and beauty consumer market as the next best thing!  Starting in our bigger salons; Hyde Park and Melrose Arch in Gauteng, and Canal Walk and Cavendish in Cape Town, building will commence beginning August to officially launch 1 August in Gauteng and 6 August in Cape Town. The Blow Dry Bar will also be available in various other Carlton Hair salons.

Inspired by the romantic, antique and rustic finishes of Parisian patisseries and glaciers, the Blow Dry Bars contrasts Carlton Hair’s sophisticated and structured scheme to emphasise the playful, soft and relaxed concept. The colour theme includes pastel shades of pink which will be visible in the custom made white marble with pink vein mosaic finishes. The chairs will all be upholstered in white while the setting will include pretty pendant hanging lights, as well as oval mirrors set onto metal frames with antique backing.

Blo launched the first dry bar in Vancouver in 2007 which is now available in 23 locations, while Drybar catapulted the concept in to success with 37 locations all around the United States.

Ditch the fizzy cold drinks and the sugary flavoured bottled water. This summer, lets be healthy with natural fruit-infused H20 you can make at home!

These simple-to-make waters are quick, healthy and will satisfy your sweet tooth. Don’t be put off by the subtle flavouring. Because you are using natural ingredients, the taste will depend on the sweetness / potency of the fruit or spice you are using. Add some ice and served chilled.

The BeautySouthAfrica team prepared our waters and let them settle for a while to reap the flavours and benefits of the added ingredients. We stored them for easy access in these fancy Brita Fill & Go Filter Bottles. This way our water wasclean and pure thanks to the filter inside the bottle lids (which should be replaced every week). They are easy to grip and drink from, and really are of great quality.
These are the flavours we tried:
Cucumber, lime & basil
Strawberry & mint
For all the above, all you need to do is cut your fruit up into whatever shapes and sizes you like, and add it to the water. Leave to infuse for about 30 minutes and then serve chilled or on ice.
What flavours have you tried? Share with us below.
Brita Fill & Go Filter Bottles, R250:
Customer Care number: 011-426-2605

Brita Fill & Go Bottles are available at the following stores:

Linen Drawer has launched a new Pure Linen range – the linen is produced from the flax plant and is GREEN. The Pure Linen range allows you to be environmentally aware but not lose out on the luxury of gorgeous linen. Being eco-friendly has never felt and looked this good.

The Pure Linen range is available in pure white and is ideal for the summer months as linen is cooler than cotton

Pure Linen is green because:
Flax is a pure natural product that is MUCH stronger than cotton or cotton / polyester blends. Linen bedding has been known to last up to 20 years and much older examples can still be found in antique shops in Italy.
The flax plant uses far less water than cotton as its cultivation requires no toxic chemicals or fertiliser.

Please visit website for prices. Prices are dependent on the sizing.
All purchases made from the online shop are delivered for free to anywhere in S.A

Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Use Dry Oil

The same great product with a limited edition look!

Containing a cocktail of 6 precious plant oils; Borage, St John’s Wort, Sweet Almond, Camellia, Hazelnut , and Macadamia, as well as Vitamin E, Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Use Dry Oil is the ultimate choice to keep your hair, face and body nourished and looking fabulous!
Perfect for all year ‘round use, winter or summer, this oil does it all!

-          Face and body: Apply to reveal a nourished, softened, and satin skin.

-          Hair: Apply to nourish dried and damaged ends or give a ”scrunch” effect to the lengths. It can also be applied as a mask before the shampoo for an intense nourishing effect.

Available at selected Truworths stores for R330.00 until the end of the year
