Published 4 years ago by


When you step in Afrique,  expect a treatment of a lifetime.

Located in the Dube Village, Soweto, Afrique Beauty Lounge is a destination for high-quality beauty services and products, whereby client experience is a priority.

The beauty palace is owned by Thando Tshabalala, a 30-year-old Rhodes University graduate who is passionate about beauty,

Growing up, I was the ultimate girly girl. Neighbors called me a lady because I used to dress up, wear make up and mimic my mother

she says.

Without any experience whatsoever, the eager and inquisitive Thando pursued her dream and opened her own business.

With a wide range of services offered, Afrique Beauty Lounge is a place where clients receive great service over a sparkling glass of bubbly.

I get to empower young women and rub shoulders with different people on a daily basis. Social media has also played a vital role on my business because I get the opportunity to network with clients and venture in more business endeavors

Thando shares.

When it comes to challenges, Thando explains;

It’s difficult to get people who are like-minded and share the same vision as you. Like any business, without the right team, things surely can go wrong.

She adds,

Having the best team is everything in this business
