Meet our staff

Tatum Strydom

This lovely young lady joined our Aurora team in November 2021 as a qualified beauty therapist. Her sweet and friendly nature is liked by all of her clients already and she is rapidly building up a following in Durbanville. She is very skilled in waxing and facials is her absolute favorite. Ask for her at your next salon visit.

Mabusane Busane

Goes by the name “Sanie” whom we imported all the way from Durban to be safely seated at our Aurora branch. She definitely brings the “swag” to the salon with her chilled demeanor and warm friendly smile. Sanie is a Nail and lash technician with more than 5 years experience and her utmost favorite treatment is Biosculpture Gel. She is fun, friendly and professional but if you randomly play her a little bit of Gqom she will definitely shake what her momma gave her as she walks to grab some manicure tools!

Nomatter Chimwenje

Nail Technician & Massage Therapist at Aurora Branch. Nomatter (you say it just like that) is the “queen” in the salon or so she thinks. Her pedicures will leave you walking on sunshine and she gives one of the best massages you will ever have with her gentle touch.

Megan Assur

Beauty Therapist at our Aurora Branch. Megan has more than 10yrs experience in beauty therapy and gained invaluable expertise whilst working on cruise ships. She is extremely talented in her field and loves absolutely everything about her industry. Her chatty and friendly nature makes all of her clients very comfortable and she is always ready to serve and teach her clients on what they should or should not be doing in the beauty routines.

Monique Smith:

Front Desk Co-ordinator Aurora Branch- Monique has been a receptionist in the beauty industry for nearly ten years and is extremely well versed in all the services and operations of a salon.

Florence Kapepula

Nail Technician Soneike Branch. Goes by the name of Flo in our Soneike Branch. Her beautiful French accent and friendly smile will put you at ease immediately when you sit in front of her for the first time. She has more than 5 yrs experience in Nail enhancing treatments and she is extremely talented with nail art too and believes that everyone needs a little bit of “Je ne sais quoi” on their nails.

Natasha Nyatsanga

Natasha is our little nail whisperer in the salon. She is exceptionally good with all nail systems and loves doing nail art. You can find her at our Aurora branch to give you the best looking nails and she literally whispers when she speaks so you may need to ask her to repeat a few times.

Sanja Van Schalkwyk

Manager at our Soneike Branch. Sanja has been in the beauty industry for more than 10 yrs. She is an outstanding beauty therapist, with microblading brows & Facials being her absolute favorite treatments.

Barbara Dewa

Goes by the name Barbie at our Soneike branch and has been a friendly face to all clients visiting our soneike branch since Feb 2021. She is AMAZING at threading and is also qualified in Acrylic, Biosculpture and Gelish. She is an absolute Gem with her friendly smile and professional nature.

Chwayita Xlkozela

Our little miss shopaholic goes by the name of Cee at our Soneike branch. She is a qualified beauty therapist and specializes in all beauty treatments. Her friendly personality makes all of her clients feel very relaxed especially with intimate waxing and she is very professional when it comes to delivering her services. We love having Miss Cee on our Soneike Team especially as we learn to keep up with all her hairstyle changes!
