Two or so years ago I moved on over to Irene, along with moving cities it meant moving shops, doctors, pharmacists, restaurants and well hairdressers. A few months down the line it came to that time of the year when I needed a haircut, my hair was really looking sad. I did not realize how hard of a task it would be to find a new hairdresser.
There are two hair dresses right up the road from me so I thought “perfect this is going to be so easy” boy oh boy I was so wrong. The first place wanted to charge me R800.00 for a trim and the second wanted to charge me R600.00 for a trim. I almost had a heart attack when I got the quotes, there was no way I would be paying that to have the tips of my hair cut off. This is when the research began. I must have googled and emailed so many people, the prices did not get any better so I came to the conclusion that my hair was not going to be getting cut anytime soon.
Months went by, about 6 to be exact, my hair was looking really bad and I knew it needed a haircut badly. Once again the googling began and I came across the Valentine hair, I emailed them asking for a price list not expecting them to be any different from the others. When I got the price list and saw I could cut my hair and blow dry it for R200.00 I nearly had another heart attack. After my hair cut and I was told the price minus a student discount I was over the moon. I had finally found a hairdresser with a reasonable price list.
Fast forward a few months where at that time I died my hair blonde. After some time it started to grow out and my roots started to show. My first plan was to let it grow out and go natural again, however, after some time I could not stand the look of my roots anymore so I took a chance and called Valentine hair to get a quote.
I am so impressed by the amazing ladies at this salon. I was there for a total of about 4 hours and in that time I got to see what goes on behind the “scenes” as one would say. The ladies are such lovely people who were so keen to help me. I am amazed at the amount of effort they put into making my hair look fantastic well staying in my budget. I also felt that they respected my budget so well, I did not feel like they were internally laughing at me.

The salon is in a cottage and decorated very nicely. I love a hair salon that is clean and kept clean through the day. Every time hair was cut it was swept up and thrown away, the bottles were cleaned and so were the brushes. I was served coffee twice by such lovely ladies.
I can say for sure that they are now my hair dresses for good. I love the service, adore the work they do and find the atmosphere fantastic.
