hair done on the move

Get your hair done on the move – this clever service comes to you!

I’ve been visiting XOXO Hair Studio for about 3 years now. Their incredible team were responsible for my change from brunette to blonde. They’re also responsible for keeping my hair healthy with all the colour changes, treatments and general heat damage it goes through because I style it a lot for camera work (thanks Esports 😛). I love the XOXO mantra that healthy hair is the main goal. When I first visited Nicho and the team I had great plans to go full grey. But years of bad colour jobs had meant my hair quality was bad and it needed serious rehab.

Fast forward a few years and I now have blonde hair that not only looks great but is also in great condition. Which is far more important than anything else. I also love how it has been coloured to suit my lifestyle. Nicho is well aware that I don’t have the time to be in a salon every 3 weeks filling roots, so he coloured it in a way that allows regrowth without it looking like I desperately need to visit the salon. I also love visiting XOXO. It is a small hair studio where everyone is made to feel welcome and you’re immediately relaxed and happy on arriving. However, as the year kicks into full swing I’m well aware that I’m going to start struggling with time. Getting to XOXO (which is based in Craighall Park by the way) to style my hair before going on Mettlestate or attending an event becomes close to impossible. Which is why I’m rather excited about the new service being offered my XOXO which allows you to get your hair done on the move!

XOXO launched XOXO on the move in December. They loaded their vehicles and arrived in Plettenberg Bay to assist clients over the holiday period. They’d arrive at your holiday home to style you and make sure you looked your best for your festive season celebrations. The service has now rolled out to the rest of Johannesburg and I cannot wait to take advantage of it!

It is pretty simple:

You fill out a booking form

XOXO on the move confirms the booking by SMS or email after your confirmation deposit is received

They then come to you!

This is such a rad one if you’re super busy as they can come through to your office to style your hair or your home. They also have a nail technician who can come along but are also able to partner with some of Joburg’s best professional make up artists. The service runs 7 days a week from 6am till late (including weekends and public holidays). You’re able to select from a range of services including Washes, hair cuts, blow dries, colour, styling and the like. The pricing is also really fair. For example, for a full set of highlights you’re charged R1350. That includes the wash and blow dry. You also don’t have to worry about having your bathroom ready. They even have portable basins! Amazing.

Travel is charged at R4 per km but if R900 or more is spent the first 10km from XOXO Hair Studio is free.

While this is a great service for someone like me who is tight on time but needs my hair styled I also think there are a stack of other great benefits with being able to get your hair done on the move. For starters this is an ideal one for pamper parties, bachelorettes, matric dances and the like but is also really great for medical patients who might be in hospital or old age homes. XOXO on the move also offers wig styling and ongoing care so those suffering from illness will find the service ideal for their needs.

I’ll be using XOXO on the Move during 2018 and thought you might want to try them out too. For more information just email onthemove@xoxohairstudio.co.za or text message 0828952459 with your requirements. Easy!

Disclosure: I have used XOXO hair studio for 3 years. Nicho and his team are incredible. I think this new service in innovative and useful so I’m sharing – good smart business ideas deserve the promotion.
