Broads Hair Salon in Green Point

Step into Cape Town’s most stylish styling spot: a ladies hairdresser that serves up classy cuts and colouring, and a blow out that’ll blow your boots off

 “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” – Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel knew a thing or two about what makes a woman’s world go round, and if you take her advice, a trip to the trimmers could be your first step towards a happier, more head-turning you. Your metamorphosis will be in expert hands at Broads- and there’s a lot more on offer than Chanel’s Little Black Bob.

Nestled in Green Point’s The Foundry complex, Broads, Blokes’s stylish sister salon, opened its doors in March 2016. Owner Brian Oosthuizen, the formidably fabulous ‘Queen of Cuts’, wanted to show some love to the powerful and inspiring women of Cape Town.

“The professional and creative women that we see- they’re all already so powerful. We just give them the hair that reflects that.” Every lion needs a sleek mane to complement their roar, right?  

The suave salons share a mod-glam aesthetic in bare-brick and bold black and gold, with gorgeous detailing. The personal touches of beautiful Baroque mirrors and a gallery of classic black and white portraits, numbering Brian’s grandfather among them, tell the story of Broads’s philosophy- it’s all about the personal touch, tailoring an experience to the clients’ needs.

The appointment-only set up, run on their oh-so-easy online booking system, means that clients get an in-depth one-on-one session before the scissors are even unsheathed. Stylisview consultations as a collaboration, bringing their experience and exquisite taste to the table to help the hair-impaired bring about the transformation of their dreams. Clients leave with a cut that looks great as they walk out the door, but that also delivers a healthy and groomed grow-out until their next visit.

Broads isn’t only a go-to for bang on trend cuts, it’s also a hair hospital, waiting to lavish some love onto damaged tresses. Blokes' and Broads’ in-house range of hair care products and lifestyle items will help you keep bad hair days at bay. The salon has developed its own organic treatments to soothe and smooth dry hair, and its Triplex moisture treatment is a must in the Cape Town winter.

With a quirky sense of humour to match its sense of style, the salon celebrates the broads it’s named for clients can choose from the ‘Joan Rivers’, a full colour treatment, or the ‘Dame Helen Mirren’ a full head of highlights. Those looking to lengthen their locks have a choice of premium quality extensions from 12 to 20 inches.  The extensions are 100% human hair and typically last for about four months.  

The salon experience doesn’t just run from root to tip- Broads also has select beauty treatments on the menu. Ladies can recline in comfort and enjoy express or gelish mani-pedis while having their tresses tended to. And why not invite the girls to join you for a glass of some top-shelf tipples while you’re at it? Every treatment is complemented by a FREE beverage- think beer, wine or coffee. Broads and Blokes share a vision of gorgeous, liveable cuts and treatments at outstanding value for money, all served up in a chic, laid-back atmosphere.

Tip: For those belles who are hearing wedding bells, Broads offers a bijou bridal menu, as well as consultations, styling and make-up trials before the big day.

The Bill: A hair cut and blow dry will only set you back R560 (for medium hair length), but our readers can enjoy a special rate of R450 for a blow dry, cut and treatment when they mention Colouring treatments range from R420 to R870, and an express mani won’t break the bank at R170.
