WIN with Style Bar, Constantia

Last week Monday I popped into my new favourite hair salon, Style Bar in Constantia Village Courtyard. After an almost 2 month break it really was time to get my highlights redone and after the previous week of travel and illness, a morning of zoning out of the world and into a bubble of pampering and preening was just what the doctor ordered!

Escaping from the mayhem that is extra-murals, school lunches, homework, lift club, work deadlines, electricity blackouts, TRAFFIC and the like is sometimes not a luxury but a necessity.

Taking some time out to pamper myself and freshen up my appearance is so vital. All busy women, esp moms, need to take a break every now and again and the hair salon is a great place to do that!

After a few hours I left feeling amazing as usual… what’s not love about a new do?? It really does make you feel like you can take on anything life throws at you!


So today I’m feeling like sharing the love with one of you lucky ladies… Yes I’m giving away a wonderful prize of a Colour, Cut and Blow dry to the value of R800!

First, a bit more about Style Bar….

Born from a successful chain of salons with over 12 years of experience, Style Bar presents a newer, fresher, trendier image that matches the image of its clientele. The newly revamped salons offer a welcoming atmosphere in a glamorous, stylish environment.


At Style Bar skilled stylists undergo specialised training by top professional hair brands such as ghd, Schwarzkopf, Moroccan oil and more. As a result they are knowledgeable and offer excellent advice, tips and a stylish personalised look you will love!

The experience is affordable and consistent and I always enjoy my visits and leave the salon with a smile on my face – not always my experience in the past at other salons!

  1. Hi 🙂
    I have blonde highlighted hair, would love it to be touched up with a little trim to keep the length and maybe a treatment after.
    Lee 0825210423

  2. I’ve heard so much about Style Bar on social media lately and would love to try it for myself. I’d probably let the stylist help me decide what to do – I need their expert advice.

  3. I neeeeed this. After reading your post I realised the last time I cut my hair was a year ago! In November I dyed my hair green…after getting bored with it I dyed it dark brown, but for some reason the green is starting to show through slightly (not to mention the greys too) This prize would be heavenly but at the same time very much needed 🙂

  4. My hair is currently long, just long and drab. It is so easy to just put in a pony. I need a cut maybe a totally new look. The color has faded and my hair is dry. The 50 or more greys are popping out and not as appealing as the movie/book. So I need a new vibrant color and look. They say having a hair makeover is as good as a holiday. So would love some pick-me-up, timeout, and looking va va voom again. I am up for ideas and advise from the talented stylist.

  5. My hair is long, almost touching my bum and I have been researching donating my hair. I would then love for Style Bar to be involved with the cut and donation of my hair and then definitely assist with the new style (and advise in maintaining it) and colour to cover the greys lol.

  6. A complete restyle from my way too long hair before my brother’s wedding in a few months.

  7. My hair looks the worst its ever been.It needs new highlights and a good trim The colour looks like yesterdays dish water.Yes it would be a wonderful treat and pick me up for my very depressed state as well.

  8. I would love a trim.a colour with some highlights would be amazing …I have short hair growing till the nape of my neck…with some grey hair that need to be taught a lesson…

  9. I’d ask for a layered cut and some highlights. And then get styled so that I can look good for my upcoming engagement shoot

  10. In def need of a hair pamper – esp with not having highlights since Dec my hair definitely needs a nice new colour and cut 🙂

  11. I would like to cut my long hair into a long bob, with layers. A bit longer at the back and gradually getting shorter in the front to creat bangs.
    Looking for a style that can be worn straight or with beach waves. I would add some baby lights to the bangs along my middle parting. Thinking of something like Jennifer Lawrence’s long bronde bob.

  12. I would really enjoy being pampered. I need a fresh color and cut. Haven’t been to the hair salon in years. So I could realy do with getting some me time

  13. One of my favourite quotes from Coco Chanel is ” A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life” and that would pretty much some up winning this Style Bar experience. There is nothing better than a fresh haircut and change in hair colour to make you feel like you can take on the world

  14. I would really like to change my look totally if I win this, have been looking the same for a very long time.

  15. My roots are in desperate need of colour touch up and my tips are dry – they need to be trimmed … Not to mention being a mom of three means I’m desperate for time-out and in need of some pampering!

  16. I have long blonde hilighted hair and havent had the time/money for a trip to the hairdresser! Lets just say my blonde hilights have turned more into an ombre gone wrong. I would love to get hilights redone! 🙂

  17. I’d like a edgy,funky yet stylish cut with a bold hair color<3 perfect for the gloomy winter days that are yet to come 🙂

  18. I visited their Pinehurst branch in November 2014 and had the best hair stylest EVER do my hair! So if I had to win this I would do the exact same colour as its grown out already, chocolate brown and let them shape my hair again so that its easily manageable. I would even add a treatment to my own cost to give my hair the attention it so badly deserves. Swimming in chlorine three times a week does some serious damage.

  19. I haven’t had my hair cut in *ages* and after (home) bleaching my hair for an ombre look and then (home) colouring it purple – both grew / washed out – I now sport the world’s most impressive spit-ends. Not something to be proud of 😀

  20. My hair is growing out at the moment, and looking very “pre-menopausal”, and could do with some TLC, which I know I’ll get from Style Bar!

  21. Hi 😀 I’m Kahley, I’m 23 and I’m 50% grey!! (The other 50% is brown). I haven’t had my hair done since June 2014 when I cut all my hair off and donated it to CANSA, in support of a friend with cancer. I’ve let it grow out since then so, needless to say, I need a new do!

    My hair is short, grown out and uncontrollably curly. I would like to cut it into a pretty, curly ‘bob’ and dye it light pink because…why not! But, my wallet and bank account don’t quite agree so winning this would be AMAZING. My mom’s hair also needs some attention so I would also like to treat her 🙂 my bank account might agree with that! As a reference, here is a photo of the longer Lady Gaga version of what I would love to do:

  22. ooh would love to win this and give my hair a lovely colour make over to hide the greys and trim the split ends

  23. I think something dramatic and shorter for winter, so lowlights would be a bonus not to wash out my skin tone.

  24. I would love to ombre my hair with light brown tones 🙂 and might I add , I still have virgin hair ..! Pick me <3

  25. Need some coverage of the grey for sure and would love a new cut now that I’ve grown out my LOB. Time to zhoozsh!

  26. Would love to have my blonde highlights touched up! Haven’t had the chance this year. . . Definitely need a trim too 🙂

  27. my hair needs some serious love, as the second pregnancy us taking some life out of it.
    Would love a new look too!!

  28. I would like to have my hair cut. I need my split ends cut and I am desperate for a fresh look for my 21st Birthday which is coming up (15th April). Fingers and toes crossed! 🙂

  29. Should I win this amazing prize, i defo wana do a dip-dye effect look, with blonde and black and wana get a nice style going on coz i havent had a hair cut in 2 years…. ( I know…. disgusting lol ) thinking an Ellie Goulding look 😀

  30. Been wanting to cut my hair in a layered look, still keeping my long hair length, with a caramel blonde colour

  31. I really need a hair makeover!!
    I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t cut my hair in forever!
    Sure, I’ll have time to give it a treatment every now and again but it’s borderline hair abuse in the split end department!
    I need a cut, I need a colour, I need layers, I need help!!

  32. I would really love to have a cut because it is very dry and brittle. My hair needs a good lift for live it is looking to dull and I colour would do my hair the worlds good. But most of all If I should win it would be and experience of a life time because I don’t know when last I was in a hair salon.

  33. I have long blond hair. I would really like to go bit shorter, maybe the “Taylor Swift” look. I’ve had long blonde hair forever and I need a new look. I’m stuck in slump and unslumping myself is not easily done. Please unslump me Style Bar Constantia 🙂

  34. I would love to have my grey coloured away and my split ends cut away… maybe a few highlights will look nice!

  35. I would love some highlights – I last did them when I was at Varsity – about 15 years ago! With 4 small kids there isnt time or money for my hair, so this would be a real treat!

  36. I need a serious update! And they can have full carte-blanche… Since my second child was born I am so busy I never have time to do anything for myself, let alone do something with my hair! I have become stuck in the rut of just tying it up in a pony (or a bun if I have 2 extra minutes) I would LOVE a chance to find a little bit of ‘me’ again 🙂

  37. It’s been SO long since I had a haircut!!! I’d love to get something that’s easy to manage but looks great. I don’t want to be spending all my time getting my hair ready each morning instead of spending it with my baby.

  38. Ahead of my 34th birthday on the 31st March, I think an adventurous (for me) cut to a Kate Moss long bob, and maybe a warm up in the blonde-blonde to something a little more golden for winter.

  39. As a stay at home mum of two very active toddlers, I am lucky if I get to tie my hair into its usual nondescript functional up and out of the way do before hitting the day running.. It has been a year since i had the time, finance and babysitters to have a hair appt – which was disastrous! (When i got home my husband said i looked like someone’s mascot… I have yet to find a great stylist. It would be phenomenal to have my hair done.

  40. I’m very adventurous with my hair and I’ve gone from blue to turquoise to purple to blonde and next is SILVER! yes, silver. It’s one of 2015’s hottest trends especially for autumn/winter and to be able to have my hair transformed to be current with what I would call the biggest trend since fleek brows is just amazing!

  41. I had a haircut four years ago! I would like a short pixie cut with a vibrant red hair color, something that’s manageable and doesn’t require alot of maintenance. I would <3 this.

  42. Root tinting and colour, anything other than brown that I’ve been applying for over a year now! Maybe even the drastic new grey trend!!! I’m open to anything when it comes to colour!

  43. I just had a baby on 27 February ♡
    So I would like a shorter do that is no fuss, easy to maintain, simple yet stylish.
    I’d like it to be a little more mature, but still young and definitely not boring.
    I’d like to go a colour closer to my natural colour so that I can look more like my baby girl ♡

  44. Are you kidding me? This would be amazing!
    My colour is so grown out, people have asked me if I’ve ombré’d my hair!
    I need this 🙂

  45. Are you kidding me? This would be amazing!
    My colour is so grown out, people have asked me if I’ve ombré’d my hair!
    I need this haha 🙂

  46. Would love to disguise last year’s rapidly out-growing high-lites with a perfect Ombre, snip some layers and a neat fringe <3

  47. Oh how I am so in need of a cut and colour. Oh just a cut would be nice. Even just sitting somewhere with no baby and toddler noise would be like a day at the spa. Pick me! Pick me! xxx
