Frizz by Hair Ahead – Where it all began
Our story begins with two successful business owners – Carmen Olsen and Cheryl van der Merwe. The two powerhouse women combined their wealth of business knowledge and decided it was time to challenge the industry with an exciting online hair store packed with expert knowledge.
Their dedication and passion are already making waves in the online beauty space and we know Frizz will only continue to grow.
Cheryl is passionate about making people feel good, and she has been doing it since 1985 when she opened her very first business, with over 40 years in the haircare industry and two more successful businesses to prove it. But what really matters to Cheryl is her client relationships.
“At Hair Ahead, our clients recognise us for the honesty and passion we dedicate to each and every person who enters the salon doors. Trust is the measurement of my success and creating an environment that prides itself on this is of the utmost importance.”
Carmen’s journey began in a corporate, male-dominated field – buying and selling shipping containers! With the experience of building two successful businesses from the ground up, now behind her back, Carmen decided it was time to trade in her (pink) steel-cap boots for a little Frizz.
It is the decades of hard work and dedication in the corporate space, combined with Cheryl’s expertise in hair care that created a recipe of success which we now call Frizz.
“This has been my most exciting venture yet, and I know Frizz is going to help so many on their hair care journey.”
What does the future hold for Frizz?
With two hard-working brains now working alongside each other, knowledge and passion has created something fiercely female and accessible for all online.
Both Carmen and Cheryl know that success doesn’t come overnight but with the combined wealth of knowledge, dedication and passion for all things fierce and feminine, this dynamic duo is taking every step in their stride.
Our mission is simple. We want to help you feel your very best, every time.
