No fuss, no frizz: Wash and blow at Ultimate Stylists

I recently found myself in need of a last minute wash and blow for an unplanned dinner. Fortunately, my colleagues recommended that I try Ultimate Stylists, which is conveniently situated at the Walmer Park Shopping Centre – and to my luck, they had a spot available.

Arriving there over lunch, I was warmly welcomed by one of their stylists who promptly took me to a wash station. Here, I settled in (with my feet up) to the bustle and buzz of the salon and enjoyed a relaxing scalp massage along with my wash and condition.

What I particularly appreciated was that my stylist took the time to ask about what products I usually use and evaluated the current condition of my hair.

After my wash, I was taken to their cutting station where I was seated and offered some tea or coffee. I was then asked whether I was looking for a straightened style or for volume and I decided to go with volume - I normally straighten my hair, but this time felt I needed to try something different.

My stylist then applied a serum to my hair for heat protection and even gave me advice about styling at home. She explained that a heat protective serum should always be used to prevent damage, even when it is just for a blow dry.

During the blow dry, I was able to chat to my stylist and found out that Ultimate Stylists currently has two branches, Walmer Park and Moffett on Main, and they are excited to announce that they will be opening a new branch at Baywest Mall.

Andrea, who is the owner of all branches, clearly takes pride in her salons and was at the Walmer Park branch while I was there. I really enjoyed that she goes around to the different stations while the stylists are busy to ensure that clients are given the very best service.

Although I have had quite a few blow dry’s, I had never had a stylist curl my hair with just a round hairbrush and a hair dryer - I was amazed at the result. Much better than the knotty results I get when trying it at home! The curls were so smooth and more natural-looking than when a curling tong or straightening iron is used. A touch of hairspray and I was ready for my dinner.

For fabulous hair that is full of volume and no frizz, call Ultimate Stylists on 041 367 5213 or visit them at the Walmer Park Shopping Centre or find them on Facebook.
