PHD Hairdressing and Skin Retreat is a modern urban, but premium hairdressing, skin care, beauty salon and nail bar in Greenside, Johannesburg and has been established for 17 years under the ownership and management of Robi Canha who in 2013 was joined by his wife, Troes Canha, as a business partner.
At the end of 2013, the owners decided it was time to re-invent the business and after a lot of research and discussions with their creative team and advisors on thinking like a consumer and what the consumer needed from a salon, they realized that their focus could not only be on design and comfort, which is a very big part of it, but on the entire experience from the time the guest arrives up to the last minute they leave the salon.
“We feel that South Africans, especially in big cities like Johannesburg, live at such a fast pace and experience such poor service most of the time, that they are hungry for a place where they can relax but also receive service with a smile in a professional and comfortable environment.”
At PHD we strive to be a premium brand by offering a premium product in a premium salon with premium finishes, but at a fair price and yet excel at customer service so that our guest feels they did not only get a professional service and product but also great value for money.
This year the owners at PHD have decided to expand their already established and professional brand into Skin Care and Nails!
In the same way that PHD grew its professional brand in their hair division, will too be the focus in their Skin Care and Nail division.
Here they will be offering all your skin care and beauty services like intense deep penetrating facial treatments, laser hair removal treatments, laser tattoo removal, lipo slimming treatments, manicures, pedicures, gel nail overlays, body waxing treatments and other Invigorating treatments.
