18 April 2019 | Art and Entertainment
Speaking at the official opening, Morna Ikosa, managing director of the hair studio, said the aim is to celebrate children and educate them whilst doing their hair. “At ZZI Kids Hair Studio, we do not believe in just doing hair, we believe that the children who come to the studio should receive VIP treatment, because they are special, unique and have supernatural inborn talents and gifts that need to be harnessed, nurtured and given a platform to be expressed,” said Ikosa.
She added that ZZI Kids Hair Studio is not just a hair studio, but an oasis for children's self-assurance and character building.
“It is a place where bravery is nurtured, confidence is encouraged, intelligence is stimulated and courtesy is more important than any superpower,” she added.
The facility offers the following services and activities; an art corner where kids are given the liberty to express themselves artistically, a book club, storytelling, and princess hair packages that also include treats for the parent.
The studio is fitted with UV steriliser, where combs, brushes and other items are placed in order to ensure exceptional hygiene. “All the equipment in the studio caters specifically to the needs of the child, from hairdryers, booster seats and other items,” shared Ikosa. The studio has also partnered up with Namibian African hair product suppliers, as the studio wants to use only natural organic products on children's hair, irrespective of the hair type. “Our team, which is led by Rolande Sadovelli, has received some up-skilling in order to effectively work with all types of hair,” she said.
