EXPRESSIONS BY DESIGN: Finally, a hair and nail salon with flair


Nowadays, one seldom experiences great customer service from the point of first contact right through to when you say your goodbyes, however I’m pleased to say that the service I received from Xpressions By Design was fantastic.

From the moment I made my booking to my mini make-over, consisting of hair colouring and a set of French tip acrylic nails, I was made to feel like their only customer. The friendly voice on the other side of the line was helpful and even got me interested in some of their great beauty specials.

Xpressions By Design is a new boutique salon offering everything under one-roof at 71 Newton Street in the heart of Newton Park, Port Elizabeth. They offer hair colour services, hair trimming, nail and toe treatments, chemical hair straightening, sunbed sessions and hair extensions.

What’s more, the salon was easy to find and it took me only a few minutes to get there from the PE CBD. I made my way into the shop and was warmly welcomed by Sunet before being ushered to my chair. I found the salon neat, tastefully-decorated and vibrant with happy conversations between customers and staff.

I was undecided on what to opt for my hair colouring but, with Sunet’s assistance, eventually decided a rich chocolate brown would be perfect for this winter.

Once the colour was applied, I sat back and relaxed. I paged through one of the magazines and allowed my mind to travel. After half an hour, the colour had set and Sunet gently eased me over to the basin where I was pampered with the most sensational Indian Head Massage I have had in quiet a long time. Thereafter, it was time to dry and straighten my tresses.

From start to finish, Sunet was completely professional and attended to each of my requests - like most ladies, am extremely fussy about my looks. Impressed with my new hair colour, it was time for my nails with Charmaine, who has been in the nail business for over 20 years.

I have never had my nails done so perfectly. She seemed to know exactly how I wanted them without my instruction. I also learnt that Charmaine is also extremely experienced in nail art and have already booked her for next month.

Xpressions By Design is highly recommended to ladies looking to transform their look. Their service was great and the pricing was just perfect. To find out more or to book a treatment, call 041 364 0527 or 061 903 6454 or email: [email protected]. You can also find them on Facebook.
