The Sweet Service Award goes to Tease Hair & Beauty, and its owner Vida Croeser, for her generosity in sponsoring a hair cut and colour without charge, kindly organized by Marina Nestel. Vida has 30 years’ salon experience, but this is her first own salon, which also offers a beauty salon service. Tease has just opened in Green Point. The day after the colour treatment I was one of a number to attend the media launch of Tease. We were sent home with a goodie bag of sample products : Redken All Soft shampoo, Redken All Soft conditioner, The Colossal Volume Express mascara, Label.m Protein Spray, Label.m sunglasses and pouch by Jean-Pierre Braganza, a collection of Agadir and SuperPlex Haircare products, and a voucher for a cut and Redken Chemistry Treatment.  TEASE salon is open seven days a week. 
 

The Sour Service Award goes to the Post Office in The Point building in Sea Point, and its assistant Alesha Savlen. I asked her to make a copy of a document which had been stapled. She returned it to me unstapled, and had no response when I asked her why she hadn’t returned it to me in the way that I had given it to her. The credit card machine did not allow my transaction to go through three times, in payment for a document to be sent to my son by courier, and only when I handled the machine myself did it work, making me believe that she had purposely manipulated the credit card machine. She appeared to have no interest in nor love for her job!
