The Dry Bar is a local blow dry bar situated in the same house as the La Belle Vie salon in Durban North, Durban. A beautiful space with the most amazing stylist, Happiness who offers a wide range of quick wash and rinses, treatments and blow waves, including: the Smooth & Sophisticated, the Cosmopolitan or Corkscrew curls, the Beachy & Wavy and more recently offering the life changing, Mykro Keratin treatment.

LUSH is a local fresh handmade cosmetics brand who believe in making effective products from fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics. They invent their own products and fragrances. They make them fresh by hand using little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients, and tell you when they were made. Lush believes in buying ingredients only from companies that do not commission tests on animals and in testing their products on humans. They believe in happy people making happy soap, putting their faces on our products and making their mums proud. They believe in long candlelit baths, sharing showers, massage, filling the world with perfume and in the right to make mistakes, lose everything and start again. Lush bath bombs are my indulgent treat for a long lazy night in the bath, soaking in their bath bomb goodness.

SOH Collections came about from a sheer demand from their customers! To begin with the SOH Group is a family owned and run business with over 25 years industry experience as South Africa’s leading multi-sensory specialists. One of the company’s unique divisions is, SOH Scent Marketing, which specialises in fragrancing environments using cutting-edge technology to create scenting solutions for anywhere from a hotel to a retail space, to shopping mall to a doctors office. From this, they constantly received requests from customers saying they were shopping in a certain store, loved the fragrance and wanted “that scent” in their home for sentence and so SOH Collections began! It allows them to fragrance your home space. They offer scenting solutions specifically designed for your home, ranging from sleek and stylish scenting units to beautiful home products. They are based throughout South Africa as well as in the UK and cannot wait to scent your space! 

At Tash B Pilates, their goal is to change lives through the art and science of Pilates. They are a full-service Pilates studio offering Pilates classes, private appointments, and semi-private appointments to the local and virtual communities. As a BASI Pilates Host Studio, they proudly offer year-round teacher training programs and continuing education for instructors in South Africa and beyond. With the excellent environment, state of the art BASI Systems equipment and passionate instructors, Tash B is a safe, and yet, inspiring space to find healing, wholeness, strength and stability within your body and mind.  Whether you are setting out to achieve new fitness goals or rehabilitating after an injury, or whether you just need a moment to invest in yourself – there is space for everyone to find what they need through consistent movement and expert individually tailored sessions.
