Shag High Voltage Hair
If you’re looking for a salon with a real electric atmosphere then look no further than Shag High Voltage Hair. This edgy, fast-paced and interactive vibe is exactly what entrepreneurs Fabio Macchia, and Corinne Ward, set out to create. Situated off Lower Valley Road in Port Elizabeth’s up and coming Baakens Valley precinct, Shag High Voltage Hair is exactly what the area needed. And as a business at the forefront of a new wave of small businesses, Shag is steadily banishing the idea of just another boring hair salon.
Customers have the pleasure of having their hair done in a massive container-like building that was previously occupied by an industrial firm. So Shag has an exceptionally spacious environment. Forget sitting on top of the customer next to you exchanging awkward glances in the mirror. This super ‘grammable’ salon is the place to hang with friends. The building also includes a second-floor section from where Other World tattoo parlour operates. What could be better? An edgy haircut and tattoo to match! Expansion plans for the business included extending business hours, acquiring a liquor licence to support a possible gin bar (Yes please!) and their event ventures.

This ultra-cool salon is the spot for you. Bellezza Hair Salon is one of a kind and every detail has been considered when going into the decor. Think modern, steampunk inspired. And one of their key elements is how they take the customer’s comfort into account. Gone are the super uncomfortable wash basins (you know the ones that leave you feeling like your next appointment should be at the chiropractor) and in their place are beautifully stylish recliner chairs that allow you to lay flat while having your hair washed.
Not forgetting the variety of snacks and drinks offered to their clients, including an ice cold beer for the boys. And, for clients who struggle to fit salon visits into their busy schedules, Bellezza offers super flexible operating times, staying open until 8pm, now that’s convenient!
