June 22, 2020

The beauty industry is arguably one of the hardest-hit industries during lockdown, salons and hairdressers have finally been given the go-ahead to reopen. We don’t exactly know what going to the hairdresser or skin therapist will look like right now, it will likely involve a lot of planning and hygiene precautions.

While you want for your favourite salon to let you know the plan ahead, the skin experts at Placecol have introduced online skincare consultations. Placecol is celebrating their 40th birthday this year, so they know everything there is to know about having good skin. And now you can get that expertise delivered straight to your living room.

Online skin consultations

In an effort to uplift the beauty of as many South African people as possible during the lockdown, the Imbalie Beauty group is introducing the online skincare consultation at a lockdown launch price of just R50. Even after lockdown, however, the group anticipates that online consultations will become a standard offering, as it is also the perfect platform for busy women to have access to a skincare professional at a time that suits them, and to discuss their skin concerns one on one, in the comfort of their own living room.
