The Boredroom Difference
Three years ago, owners Mia and Maritza started The Boredroom, Plein Street, Stellenbosch. Starting from scratch and using their own savings, their vision was to create a trendy place where clients could visit and relax, as well as being professionally pampered.
Today, The Boredroom is a fabulous destination with a staff of eight, where clients and friends chat, connect and pop in.
What makes The Boredroom so special – at any time of the year?
“It’s a very family-focused setup and a chilled vibe. We have a Nespresso machine and a gin bar. People pop in for coffee, gin or a chat, and we welcome anyone who wants to come and use our wi-fi and do some work. Our year end function always includes a few clients who have become part of the family!”
And what does The Boredroom do differently over the busy season?
There is always someone keeping the team’s spirit’s up so we stay positive. Every day, we bring cupcakes or snacks because food keeps people in a good mood. We have a staff Whatsapp group where we regularly thank everyone for their hard work.
What is The Boredroom’s favourite product range?
We are a Matrix salon for both colour and retail. It’s affordable, and the results you get on the hair are incredible. My clients are addicted to the Total Results range, especially our students. It is such good value and they adore it.
International Men’s Style Collection from Juliette den Ouden
Juliette den Ouden, international hair and make-up artist, and founder of JDO Academy, recently put together a men’s collection shoot for winter 2018. This collection won her the first prize in the Dutch Coiffure Awards, and third place in the AIPP Awards (won by South Africa’s Candice McKay).
The collection is inspired by the working classes in the 1950s – tough and raw, but with soft lines to the hair.
