Beaty Feature: My favourite hair stylist, Gilbert Mofubelu, is now based at LUME Beauty Atelier in De Waterkant

by Karisa

Gilbert Mofubelu, the extremely talented man behind all my hair makeovers over the past 5 years from blonde balayage to fiery redhead & various other looks in between, has recently moved to a sexy new space in De Waterkant.

I paid him a visit there at the end of 2019 for a quick refresh of my current look, which I must say I’ve really been enjoying…. We decided to give my hair a bit of a colour break as well as a much needed chop & voila! it’s a new me…

On the left: My previous look. On the right: My current vibe. What do you guys think? I’ve been loving the shorter hair, mainly because it’s less work & weirdly also a little more fun.

Back to Gilbert’s new hair styling home… The space is called LUME Beauty Atelier & it’s absolutely gorgeous. Let me give you a quick tour:

You’ll find LUME in the Mirage building @ 40 Chiappini Street – right next door to The Capital Mirage Hotel.
The welcoming entrance area… oh & that’s Gilbert in the shot! 🙂
The very sexy mani & pedi corner…
One of their treatment rooms. FYI – they also have a couples room…
The hair styling section…
And the comfiest “La-Z-Boy” chairs for the ultimate shampoo experience…

Gorgeous right? As far as treatments go, they do everything from facials & massages to hands, feet, waxing, lash extensions, microblading and then of course hair styling. They don’t have their full menu online, but to give you an idea, you can visit the treatment page on their website over here.

Their prices have just gone up though, so best will be to just give them a call to confirm. As for Gilbert’s services, these are also bookable via the LUME reception desk by dialing 021 286 1201. They’ll be able to advise on rough pricing based on what you’re wanting to have done.

LUME is open Mon – Sat, 9:00 – 19:00. That means you can even squeeze in some pampering & maybe even a sexy, new hairstyle before that hot date/event during the week. #High5ToThat

If you’re keen to fully embrace the whole “New year, new me” mantra, do give LUME a call & ask for Gilbert! 🙂
