Excentric Hair & Nail Salon
Put your faith (hair and nails!) in the trusted hands of Florin (Flo) Neacsu and the rest of the Excentric team. The cool, contemporary house of beauty, which has recently opened a new salon down the road from their first one, will custom create a haircut and style suited to your features, career and lifestyle.

Yemaya Spa & Hair
After a 2014 move from its glam home in Mouille Point to Sea Point's new, swish The Point shopping centre, Yemaya Spa & Hair is up and running and back to what it does best: acting as a one-stop shop for relaxation and rejuvenation. Though best known for offering the kind of scientifically innovative and results-driven treatments that Hollywood celebs live by (think radio frequency treatments, IPL skin rejuvenation, botox, fillers and more), the day spa also offers the more traditional treatments and basic essentials that you’d expect from most houses of beauty: massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, waxing, etc. Plus, the new spacious hair salon does everything from cuts and colours to blow-outs and extensions.  And despite the relocation, what have remained consistent is Yemaya’s down-to-earth nature and its commitment to stocking only the best premium products, like Guinot, Dermalogica, Karastase and Babor. Needless to say, Yemaya is one salon customers can leave feeling like superstars.

Dream Nails Beauty
Dream Nails gives you an opportunity to be original with your designs. This beauty salon has been in existence for over 30 years and has kept their clients happy with the professional and friendly services. Whether you choose to have your nails done or have their “dreamy massage”, it is all relaxing and rejuvenating at the beauty parlour. With nail technicians like Jacqueline Moolman (top nail technician in South Africa in 2015), it is no surprise that women all over are making regular appointments.
Cavendish Square | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 674 0767

Thai Sabai Day Spa & Skin Clinic
This luxurious but unpretentious Somerset West spa whisks visitors off to faraway lands with its exotic Thai-inspired treatments and motif. And while the highly trained Southeast Asian therapists and their deep tissue method of massage are by far the wellness centre’s most unique talking points, its skin clinic is also worth a mention. From within the spacious, airy Helderberg area home, patrons can get a manicure, pedicure, facial, wax or more complicated treatment, like Botox or microdermabrasion. Those who have the luxury of time can relax by the sparkling swimming pool, alongside the cheery flower beds or in the peaceful Zen garden.
206 Irene Avenue | Somerset West | +27 (0) 21 855 4057

Sorbet Man 
Sorbet Man is the illustrious big brother of the well-known Sorbet salons in South Africa. A dudes-only destination and they don’t mess around - offering manicures, pedicures, facials, stylish cuts and body waxing. While the stylists work their magic, you can enjoy a cold beer or scotch on the rocks. Sound like the ideal man cave? Well, you will be glad to know that you can watch sports while the magicians (barbers) do all the grooming and bring out the best look to suit your lifestyle. This is also the only Sorbet Man in Cape Town.
Cape Quarter Lifestyle Village | Somerset Road | Sea Point | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 434 3902

Glasshouse Rejuvenation for Men
Mark Simpson coined the phrase ‘Metrosexual’, in 2002, which refers to a man who isn’t ashamed to indulge and pamper himself. Thus began a metrosexual revolution, which is fully endorsed by this Greenpoint salon. Glasshouse is a top spa where men can fine tune their appearance with teeth whitening, facials and botox.

Permanent Beauty
During the 1970’s, thin eyebrows were in vogue. Whilst it looked fabulous at the time, fast forward to the present day and we’re faced with 50-somethings with no eyebrows. Permanent makeup employs tattoos as a means of producing designs that resemble makeup. This means that women can wake up looking beautiful every day.

Bhakti Body & Beauty
Did that fatal eyebrow wax that you had two years ago traumatize you too much to go within five miles of a beauty salon? Bhakti Body & Beauty Spa offers threading, an ancient way of hair removal that originates from South Asia, using special thread to pull hair from the roots. The procedure is less painful, faster, and leaves your skin - and you - far less traumatized.
