What do Clients look for in a salon?

In our years in business, we have learned our clients and strived to meet their expectations in terms of what they look foward to when they come to our salon for service. Some of the most important factors that clients consider in choosing a particular salon are the location, punctuality of the staff, cost amongst others. Below we highlight the reasons that stand out and our committment towards meeting them:


Clients Want Strong Relationships 

After a client has visited a particular hairstylist more than a few times, he or she wants to feel like "part of the crowd." Some people get their only social interaction in the fun atmosphere of a salon. They want to know that they matter to their hairstylists on a personal level. At Styles 101, we establish a long and loyal relationship with a client by listening to the client and respecting their wishes for their hair and style. We also take into account our client's lifestyle when doing their hair and that's why we have tailor made solutions to cater for our diverse clientelle.


Clients Want Valuable Services 

We value our clients and for this, we go above and beyond for them in delivering hair, styling and beauty services. We will also go out of our way to add extra gestures that can add to an appointment to make our clients feel appreciated, and hopefully buy their loyalty and returning clients who refer their friends for services. This is why we keep up continually growing and evolving as a your preffered stylists so we can offer new services to you.


Clients Want Clean Salons

We take pride in our salon Styles 101 and uphold high sanitation standards. We will always keep the floor swept, mirrors clean, as well as all work stations neat and tidy. Our clients can breathe in a salon space without smelling the vapor of nail polish or other chemical substances throughout their entire appointment. Our clients always appreciate the cleanliness of our salon, and its benefits towards a dedicated clean proffessional environment. In addition, we sanitize all our equipment properly to protect our client's safety. We feel proud of our salon's level of cleanliness that we can't shy away of bragging of at times.


Enjoy Healthy & Beautiful Nails

Everyone benefits from a Manicure or Pedicure treatment. It is deeply relaxing, can give confidence to the receiver about their appearance & help maintain healthy hands, feet & nails. Manicure & Pedicure The most exposed part of your body is your hands & fingernails, as they are always on show. During the dry seasons, with pretty sandals or open shoes, your feet & toenails are exposed to scrutiny as well. At that time, nothing would look better than clean well-maintained fingernails and freshly painted toenails.


Regular manicures and pedicures will enhance the health of your fingernails and toenails, promoting faster growth and maintaining well moisturised cuticles.The benefits of a professional manicure and pedicure include much more than just the appearance of your hands and feet. At styles 101, we give you a good reason to have a regular manicure or pedicure by using the best products inthe market and giving your nails a proffessional midas touch. Receiving a regular manicure and pedicure treatment will help prevent any nail disease’s or nail disorder’s. Prevention is much better than cure and with regular care you will not need to worry about conditions which can be painful and unsightly.


Regular Manicure & Pedicure treatments will also help to prevent and eradicate common conditions such as Ingrown Toe Nails, Fungal Nails, Thickened Nails, Brittle Nails, Curved Nails, Bitten Nails & even the incorrect use/removal of artificial nails. Besides just filing your nails and adding a coat or two of polish, our treatments will include exfoliating the skin to remove dead cells, smoothing the surface and stimulating regeneration. Calluses and dead skin are removed from the feet with pumice, which not only makes your feet look much better – it makes them feel much better too. Many aches and pains in feet result from standing on calluses and uneven areas all day. We use special cuticle treatments and moisturizers to hydrate the skin, massaged into the forearm and hand or lower leg and foot, as well as nourish the nails and cuticles. Massaging provide stress relief, improves blood flow and helps to relieve aches and pains. It is also very relaxing. The end result is softer skin and you feeling re-energized. The various oils, herbal pastes, treatments and polishes used can strengthen your fingernails and toenails. Although you may be able to apply nail polish yourself, it is unlikely that you will take the time or trouble to apply all the other treatments and procedures that a professional manicure and pedicure provides. Try as you might, a home manicure is unlikely to look as good or last as long as a professional manicure and pedicure. You can expect a professional manicure to last about three weeks, and a pedicure can last up to 5 or 6 weeks. During that time you will be able to proudly bare your hands and feet, comfortable with the super soft condition of the skin and the quality of the treatment.


In Summary

Benefits of Manicures

A manicure will clean and shape your nails and treat your cuticles, which is vital for keeping your nails healthy and strong. During a manicure your hands will be exfoliated to remove dead skin cells and to improve circulation and stimulate blood flow. A manicure generally but not always includes painting the nails. Not only will having a manicure make your nails and hands look good, it is also very relaxing & will promote healthy nails.


Benefits of Pedicures

Feet are one of the most neglected parts of our bodies and often get left off our regular beauty routine. Pedicures are similar to manicures except they are specially designed for feet. During a pedicure your nails will be cleaned, shaped and trimmed to prevent ingrown nails. The exfoliating and massage elements can relieve aching feet and muscles and stimulate circulation. The oils and moisturising elements will keep feet well-hydrated and prevent dry cracked heels, which can be painful and unsightly. Pedicures generally include application of a toenail varnish. A regular pedicure will promote healthy, beautiful feet & toenails. It is also very relaxing.


Manicure and pedicure services are not just for women! There are great benefits for men as well. Manicures and pedicures should be done regularly for good hand, foot and nail health for both genders.



Braids are a protective hair style and if you braid your hair it will grow better and faster.That's true but only to a certain extent - if you don't braid your hair in the right way you will lose hair! When it comes to braids you need to keep the following things in mind:

Braiding your hair will lead to breakage if: The braids are tiny You neglect your hair while it’s in braids To ensure your hair does grow when it is braided do the following:

Deep condition your hair very thoroughly before braiding Make sure you don’t put a large hair extension on a small patch of hair. The pulling impact could lead to breakage. Plait your hair without using extensions, e.g. by doing corn rows or single plaits and twists with your own hair only If you do use extensions, consider corn rowing the hair on the front edge. It tends to be more prone to breakage Ensure you treat your hair just as well in braids as you do when it’s not. This means washing, deep conditioning and moisturizing every 7 to 10 days. Regurlary spritz it with water. This will ensure that when you unbraid the hair it’s not dry and brittle. When you take the braids out give your hair a break to assess the state of your hair before putting on a new set of braids.
