Pampering in retro style over at Petticoat Parlour in Green Point

by Karisa

Last week I was lucky enough to get my pamper on at the oh-so-gorgeous Petticoat Parlour in Green Point.

With it’s awesome retro 50s/60s/70s style, don’t expect any of that standard spa stuff here… No muted tones, no ocean of beige, no dreaded panpipe music CD… Nope, that’s all been replaced by beautiful bright colours, a sexy checkered floor, a tempting cupcake & lemonade bar, and just a whole lot of fun really.

Let me show you what I mean:

I know right, hands down the prettiest beauty salon / day spa I’ve ever seen… That decor literally just makes me smile from ear-to-ear. 🙂

Now they run a full beauty shop over there.  They do waxing/threading, body treatments like massages & body wraps, lash extensions, spray tans & sunbed sessions, hands & feet, facials and even some treatments for the boys.  But you can have a look at their full treatment menu over here.  I went for a 1 hr aromatherapy massage (R550) and a French Pedicure (R250):

That’s their two treatments rooms up top, and then below is their pedicure section. That’s two happy customers on the left and myself & friend Clouds on the right. (For the record, I am wearing pants in that shot – my stupid jumpsuit just makes it looks like I’m just casually sitting there with a bare bum… that would be wrong)

The other really great thing is that they can also cater for groups – so think girls pamper days, bachelorette parties, birthdays and more.  They can treat 5 people at a time, so you can just work around that by staggering your ladies’ treatments, but yeah I’m definitely going to be keeping them in mind the next time I have to arrange some kind of get-together.

If you to want to beautify yourself in these gorgeous surroundings, then do take note of the following details:

  • They are open:  Tue & Wed 09:00 – 17:00, Thu & Fri 09:00 – 19:00, Sat 09:00 – 14:00 (Closed on Sundays & Public Holidays)
  • You’ll find them at:  Suite1, 1st Floor Paramount Place, 105 Main Rd, Green Point  (basically above Giovanni’s)
  • And you can contact them on:  021 434 9484 or

I have to say a BIG thank you to the Petticoat Parlour team for having me.  You guys will definitely be seeing me again, because I’m completely in love…
