Sizzling summer hair: Get your unique look at Velvet Spoilz


For most people, summer signals an opportunity to take that long-awaited break from daily routines and drudgery. For me, it usually invokes dreams of lazy days on sun-bathed beaches, sun-tan, sunglasses, cocktails, swimsuits, colourful dresses, trendy hats, sheer tops and shorts as well as great pool parties – everything that cries vacation!

With this thought in mind, I recently felt the need to exchange my spring hair style for a look that would keep me feeling cool but looking summer hot.

After hearing good things about Velvet Spoilz, conveniently located at 74 Cape Road, Mill Park, Port Elizabeth, I decided to visit them about my decision to lighten my locks on a recent Saturday morning.

On arrival, I was warmly welcomed by Jacqui, the owner of Velvet Spoilz, who introduced me to Sam, their head stylist. Sam promptly ushered me to a sitting area where she presented their impressive hair-colour chart.

With summer approaching fast, I felt I needed a subtle, sun-kissed, natural brown tint. With Sam’s expert guidance, we eventually decided on a fresh new look.

Once the colour was applied, I sat back and relaxed as it set in for about half an hour.

Afterwards, Sam eased me over to a washing basin where her assistant, Chante’ who pampered me with the most extraordinary Indian Head Massage. We all actually need one of these at this time of the year!

Thereafter, it was time to dry and straighten my new tresses.

You seldom get a colour to come out exactly as portrayed in the colour charts, but this colour was true perfection. I was very impressed by the results and could not wait to show off my new hair to the world that I quickly settled my bill, said goodbyes and left.

From start to finish, Sam was completely professional and attended to each of my needs and requests. The pricing for my makeover also made it just that much more enjoyable.

Needless to say, I was extremely impressed and can highly recommend Velvet Spoilz to anyone looking for a fresh, new summer look.
