Check out the July issue to see who wins!
It’s been a year. Already!
What a year this one has been for Rembesha and I. Exactly one year ago as I type this note, I was at the Alchemist handing out copies of the first issue of Rembesha to stylists and salon owners at the Kenya Hair and Beauty Contest Awards 2016. Together with a small team from Rembesha, we spent the entire day cheering hairdressers and stylists as they showcased their skills and talent, and engaging with them on what Rembesha was. The very next day, I checked in to the Nairobi hospital, for back surgery.
Starting out a business and not being at my fighting form is not what I had hoped for, but Rembesha was a dream I had carried for more than 9 years and it’s time had come. Over the next few months, recovery and work were the order of the day. Some days were great, and others I could barely sleep- in pain and often wondering about the team, the product and the future.
Ensuring that we were online was paramount and our social media got going just hours before the magazine was out. From only one follower online, to a community of more than 100,000 on Instagram, FaceBook and Twitter, we have created awareness on local hair and beauty service providers, and product makers over the past few months and reach as many as 175,000 people per week online! In connecting with a largely female audience we have also tapped in to secondary clients who are seeking our target audience, thus broadening our scope.
As we spring forward, we have even more value on offer. We are gearing up for the stylists’ issue in July. A salon is only busy, because the stylists are busy. A salon can only be as big as its' stylists. If you’re a stylist with great talent and skill, this is your issue. Begin to think about marketing, as a way of investing in yourself. Get in touch with us and let us showcase your work, and grow your brand.
I sign off with a warm and heartfelt thank you to all our clients and consumers for believing in Rembesha. Thank you to every salon, spa and outlet that distributes Rembesha, we truly would not be here without you. To our online family, thank you for helping us grow! To #TeamRembesha, God’s grace makes everything possible!
Here’s to a great and stronger year ahead as we all do our best to #RembeshaKenya
We love to hear from you! If you'd like to share your work as a stylist or salon, drop us a line, and if you'd like to share your work as a hair, beauty and lifestyle blogger, we've got room for you too! Keep it short and beautiful. Rembesha Kenya!!
Located in the Garden Estate area, Eddy’s Barber and Spa is a friendly and inviting space for the upwardly mobile modern man who works hard and plays hard. Set to cater for executives with busy schedules, Eddy’s Barber and Spa, also makes room for kids cuts, and selected services for women.
The reception area is warm and busy with bookings, but the occasional walk-in client, is easily accommodated. Eddy’s Barbershop allows men the space to get their grooming done, without the overt ‘ladies-salon-feel’ associated with most salons. It is a gentleman’s place!
The barber section is manned by professional barbers who not only style and trim client’s hair and beards, they also provide re-styling services where one can upgrade and change one’s cut and colour.
Open seven days a week, the spa experience at Eddy’s is impressive. Offering a range of treatments such as facials, Indian head massages, deep tissue massages, and steam services, the standard of hygiene is reflected in the spotless white surfaces and towels in use. The spa is airy and light, and carefully maintained by the staff. Upon arrival, guest’s shoes are taken and traded for clean sandals and slippers to use while in the spa area. Treatment rooms have different color schemes, which compliment the treatment selected, and clients can opt to have their treatments with, or without background music. Trained therapists assist clients in the choice of facials and treatments based on a skin analysis and the client’s needs.
Eddy’s Barber and Spa provides a complimentary drink and free Wi-fi ensuring clients stay connected. Service is fast and efficient from the staff, with attention to detail, and high standards of professionalism. Once grooming is done, clients are offered a choice of select high-end colognes to splash on, to cap their experience at Eddy’s. Shoes are cleaned, polished and returned to the client, thus completing the gentleman’s grooming.
In a city teaming with salons for women, Eddy’s Barber and Spa is a refreshing haven for men, and with Father’s day coming up, an afternoon of pampering for the man in your life, is just the ticket, at Eddy’s Barber and Spa!
