Twists & BraiDs

2+ Hours Price TBD

Braiding has long been a community oriented practice across the African continent and diaspora. The amount of creative styles are endless and you will see why women frequently change their hairstyles and try out new looks!

Barber Shop Shape-Up

60 MINUTES R100 

Add a quick hair cut to your township community experience! As in many communities the local Barber Shop functions as much more than a place to get a haircut—this is where men come to talk and get spruced up. 

Traditional Face Painting

15 MINUTES R50 

A great add-on to any experience! Traditional Xhosa "white-dot" facial art usually worn for special occasions and celebrations.

Mhinti is a legend. She showed me a side to the township that I wouldn’t have gotten to see otherwise (I even got my haircut in town ;). I was super lucky to have the experience to myself and so after going to the planned stops on tour we were able to be a bit flexible and ended up at a restaurant hanging out. She’s a great person that truly works for the betterment of the community and shows you the places in town that are working towards great causes.
