Established in 1996 at Sandton City, Bijan Hair Salon fast became the stomping ground for Santonistas in need of boutique hair service. Fast forward 23 years and Bijan is still thriving, with Christo Gillmer and Phillip van Heerden at the helm. Gillmer, who used to be a stylist himself, bought the salon with Van Heerden before relocating to Atholl Square three years ago, where they have been snipping the competition down to size ever since. The salon’s phones buzz and chime at an incredible pace. Their winning formula is that they keep up with the latest hair trends and cater for male and female clients, which gives them an edge. They also do party and bridal hairstyling. For men, Bijan provides cutting and restyling, colouring, grooming and precision cutting.

Other services like manicures, pedicures, waxing and facials are also available. Over the years, the studio has built up a following and, according to Gillmer, their mission to be loyal to clients, the company and themselves has created an incredible atmosphere in the salon where attitudes are bubbly and service superior. The salon has sponsored Miss SA 2015 and other competitions through the years, but it’s their stamp as a sponsor of Miss Earth SA and the Nedbank Million Dollar Golf Style Affair that makes them the go-to salon in the area. The salon is expanding with a new concept that will be revealed soon.

The salon is open daily and even on some public holidays. It’s essential to make an appointment. Bijan Hair Salon is on Katherine Street, Atholl Square. To make an appointment, phone 011-326-8334.
