Grooming for men: Gents, look good too at Salon Fringe Hair and Beauty Salon

BY HENDRIK LANGENHOVEN - JULY 16, 2015

Perhaps due to my busy lifestyle, I never seem to have enough time on my hands to go from one place to another for treatments and pampering. So, I was happy to discover that I could enjoy everything from specialist grooming to styling under one roof at Salon Fringe Hair and Beauty Salon.

While the salon, which is situated along Third Avenue, Newton Park, Port Elizabeth, caters mainly for ladies and kiddies with services such as hair styling, colouring, cuts, blow-drying and nails, I discovered that they are also geared to meet the grooming needs of gents.

I met up with head hair stylist, Charné Van Niekerk to find out what they have to offer the families, gents, ladies and kids. She offered to show me, to which I agreed and found myself at one of their washing stations, where I had a relaxing wash and scalp massage.

Afterwards, she worked on my cool new haircut – which turned out exactly how I had imagined it. That was the normal part.

Charné then took me upstairs to another station where I was to get a full manicure and eyebrow trim – yes; guys can enjoy these as well nowadays. There, we found beauty specialist, Eliska Havenga, waiting to attend to my hands and feet, which were followed by the dreaded plucking of the eyebrows.

As it turned out however, the whole experience had not only been relaxing, but also comforting as everything was done professionally and the ladies showed a superb work ethic. I later left Salon Fringe Hair and Beauty Salon feeling like a new person.

Charné also informed me that they had recently added local styling legend, Faiza Khan, to their team from Sunridge Village. Being a family friendly outlet, I was also happy that their rates were very reasonable when compared to the level of service that they offer. Salon Fringe is also Lyoness accredited, which means that people with a Lyoness membership card get money-back points with their purchases at the salon.

Take it from me, Salon Fringe Hair and Beauty Salon is the place to go – whether you are trend-setter, fashionista or someone just wanting to look and feel good.
