Meraki Aesthetics Cape Town is a salon with a difference, not only offering clients a modern and private space to disconnect, relax and rejuvenate but also focusing on providing a green practice.
Meraki is the product of two great minds with a passion for the beauty industry and restoring happiness in others. Leigh and Nadine have created an environment free from stress and unnecessary complications. Neither of these two powerhouses ever envisioned that they’d be in the art of relaxation one day. Leigh has a background in the financial world. Nadine has a background in tourism and hospitality. Both realised that their intended path was not their passion. Their soul, creativity and love has resulted in Meraki Aesthetics Cape Town.
Their approach to holistic wellness applies to how they treat the world around them. Opening a beauty salon in Cape Town, it is vital that Meraki can operate in an as eco-friendly, water-wise manner as possible while maintaining a high-level of hygiene and beauty standards. Meraki calls Battery Park home, this building has been built in accordance with the Green Star Office Tool and strives to have as minimal an impact on the environment around it as possible. “The products used in our practice contain no ingredients that contaminate water for recycling and we heat our water individually when needed so that we don’t waste this valuable resource waiting for it to run hot.“ adds Leigh, co-owner of Meraki. In addition, all their indoor plants are indigenous to South Africa and are not very thirsty.
The Meraki Team encourage the use of their email or SMS facility to send receipts to avoid unnecessary printing. And, of course, they serve you water in a glass. Meraki has a strictly no plastic bottle or straw environment. Single-use items are highly discouraged.
When it comes to facial products, they like their products the way they like their beauty routine, uncomplicated and effective. “We believe that science and nature go together like cake and chocolate, we believe in proven scientific results and we believe in not adding any unnecessary ingredients or routines to our lives. If we don’t personally use it, see results and love it, then it won’t make our team. We’ve got your beauty back.” adds Nadine, co-owner of Meraki.
