Carlton Hair at its best!
We sent one of our Durbanite contributors, Theresa to try out Carlton Hair at La Lucia Mall.
“Like any working woman, I like to look my best and absolutely hate a bad hair day! With living in Durban, I couldn’t possibly live without my trusted GHD and don’t know how I survived without one. I go for my regular colour, cut and always like to do a treatment especially as I get a few highlights done and I know this strips my hair of moisture.
When I was asked to pop into Carlton Hair at La Lucia Mall to get my hair done by Master Stylist / Manager, (what a title!) Jordash, I was over the moon as I was in dire need of SOMETHING to transform my rag-doll look!
I stepped into a buzzing Saturday morning salon, greeted by friendly faces, seated immediately and offered refreshments. Jordash and his assistants Gwen and Nathan were great, I was never left to sit aimlessly for too long, always knew where I needed to be or move to and they took the time to explain exactly what they were about to do. I learnt many different things about Carlton including the Hair Academy which they run! Staff are not only trained in the academy they also go for regular refreshment courses, workshops and seminars to keep up to date with the latest trends. One of the current trends is something which I have never heard of before, it’s called Flamboyage which is quite technical and when done properly it creates a more natural / trendier uneven look. I wasn’t feeling too adventurous this time round so I stuck to the usual – a few highlights to give my hair some lift and face some colour, with a darker colour in between to allow for more natural regrowth (I like to get away with a few centimeters of regrowth when able!)
After my foils (I always feel like a robot on Halloween at this point lol) I was treated to a wonderful head massage followed by a new process (to me), called Mico Mist. This is an advanced technology that is added to your treatment which allows for deeper absorption of the treatment. The hair shaft is activated and opened, whilst the treatment is locked deep within. With a cut and blow after I felt as good as new!
I would like to thank Jordash and the team at Carlton La Lucia for the lovely morning of pampering! It was a great experience – no chopping off ears or orange hair – I wouldn’t hesitate going back. One thing worth mentioning at this point is something which I don’t always see and that was the fantastic TEAM WORK that all exhibited… each staff member was willing to help the next and I feel that this is something that sets Carlton above the rest. Well done guys!
Carlton Hair at the La Lucia mall is currently located at shop 223 but will be moving very soon – which is quite an exciting change! Stay posted to our social media or follow Carlton Hair on theirs to keep up to date with all the latest news.”
