Looking for the best hair straightener

Mels Hair Salon


The best hair iron worth nothing without a stylist

Looking for a professional hair iron?  Before you buy it online, here’s what you need to know… 

In the past, the most popular hair irons such as ghd, Cloud 9 and Corioliss were made available only from professional hair stylists. These hair irons were tried, tested and advocated by hair stylists.  Without the stylist these brands would have not made its popularity.  So why did hair stylist become the route to market and not retail stores like Clicks? 

To obtain a certified hairdressing qualification, you would need to study full time for 1 or 2 years and complete working over 3600 hours under supervision.  Suppliers relied on qualified hairstylist, their experience, and advice advocating and educating to their customers while preventing any damage to their hair.  

The rise of online stores have prevented customers from receiving any advice.  Today we treat more damage from frizzy hair than ever before considering all the information we have access to online. Customers end up spending  more than they realize to repair or recover their hair only to repeat their mistakes with incorrect use of their hair iron.  

So before you shop online for the best hair iron, just remember, the real value for money is not the hair iron you can afford but the invaluable advice you will miss out from qualified hair stylist and all the damage you can save your hair.

We at Mels hair salons pride ourselves on providing great advice.  Why not give us a try….or come say hi.  Our salons are situated in Springfield Park and at the Atrium mall in Overport.  We look forward to meeting you.
