Bolanle Olukanni and Zainab Balogun-Nwachukwu
TV host Bolanle Olukanni and actress Zainab Balogun-Nwachukwu continue to broaden their horizons as the duo just ventured into the service industry by teaming up to launch Nigeria’s first focused hair salon – the Wash & Go Hair Salon.
The establishment offers a brand new hairstyling experience focused on providing exceptional hair care in a timely manner. The duo celebrated the opening of the salon on the 30th of September, 2019, with a star-studded 50s themed party – which is in line with the salon’s decor.
The event was well attended by close friends, family members, and supporters which included Toni Tones, Linda Ejiofor, Chef Fregz, Lala Akindoju, Bez, Lamide Akintobi, Chi Gul, Koye Kekere-Ekun, Fola Olowu, Bidemi Zakariyau, and Cynthia Obi-Uchendu, to name a few.
The idea for the ‘Wash and Go’ salon was inspired by the growing need for a faster salon alternative for standard hair maintenance. The duo wanted to create an environment where women, men, and children could receive routine hair maintenance treatments from professional hair technicians, in a fraction of the time it takes at traditional full-service salons.
“We love all types of hair – permed, natural and relaxed,” says Balogun. “We decided to focus solely on taking care of our clients’ real hair. We don’t call ourselves a natural hair salon, but a healthy hair salon with a twist. Our business model further leans on improving the experience through technology.”
Wash & Go has a user-friendly website where clients can easily book appointments, and communicate appointment needs through their phones. In addition to efficiency and effectiveness, the Wash & Go salon prioritizes client comfort and experience. Balogun commented, “our eclectic 50s style salon, takes our clients back in time through music and our Afro-vintage themed decor, ensuring that all clients have a pleasant and relaxing experience.”
Due to the salon’s mission of providing quality and timely services, Wash & Go does not provide elaborate hair attachment services or styles that extend beyond washing, treating, and plaiting hair, which allows them to be specialists in their streamlined treatments.
Balogun and Olukanni went through months of research to identify the best treatments and techniques for different hair types. This, coupled with their hand-picked and thoroughly trained hair technicians, ensures that Wash & Go is equipped to give its clients an excellent, hassle-free, and speedy salon experience at the best price.
Olukanni noted “a lot of customers are used to spending three to four hours at their hair salon and that’s never enjoyable! Fortunately, we can get our clients in and out much faster, within two hours, because of our streamlined services. Whether you want a quick wash or a breezy french braid, or you just need to refresh the weaving under your favorite wig – you don’t have to deal with the long wait times that exist at regular full-service salons. We’ll take care of you in no time!”
Wash & Go is now officially open and is located at (Esteek Plaza ) 40b Adebayo Doherty, Lekki phase 1. It will run for 7-days a week. To learn more please visit www.mywashandgo.com or call, message or WhatsApp Wash & Go at 0805 475 5962.
