Excitement is in the air as we countdown to the big reveal of the Legends store, but first, it’s breakfast time. The Legends barber team gets last minute prep underway and we head to the official opening and the cutting of the ribbon at 11 am. Owner and CEO of Legends Barber Sheldon Tatchell thanked the public for their constant support and promised to expand the brand even further. Future plans include having their unique hair services available to everyone who needs it at a convenience, so this is only the beginning.
14:00 PM: We then descended to the VIP lounge at the Entertainment Centre for a quick lunch before heading out for the activities of the day. We thought things couldn’t get any better as the SheaMoisture South Africa team presented us with goodies from their hair and skin range and everyone retreated to their rooms.
20:00 PM: We all gather for the final dinner before heading out to club Encore.
22:00 PM: Party O’clock! After months of planning, the Legends team can officially raise a glass in celebration of the successful launch.
Sunday, 17 June
We congregate at the Cascades Hotel and wait for our shuttles for pick up. It’s now time to head back to Johannesburg.
