Fabmom of the Month – Believe in your dreams

May 18, 2017

A Cape flats darling, Baryl Hendricks moved to Atlantis in 1984 after she got married. With a fiery passion for making others look and feel beautiful, she started working at Cut Above, a hair salon based close to her new home and where her obsession with hair and beauty was further fueled.

In 1993, due to her husband’s work demands, they packed up their life and moved to Johannesburg where she immediately threw herself back into what she loved most and started a new career at Hair International, an upmarket salon in Pretoria.

Not quite settled in and just getting used to the drier climate, Baryl soon found herself on a plane back to Cape Town. Her ex- boss simply couldn’t do without her and her magnetic love for the industry that drew clients so easily, and booked her the earliest flight home. To Baryl it felt good being valued.

With her husband still in Joburg, the pair decided it’s time they settle and bought a house in Atlantis. Fulfilling a lifelong dream she finally took the plunge and opened her very own hair and beauty salon. The path that followed wasn’t an easy one and not all things turned out as she had planned.

Her marriage crumbled and in 1999 she once again packed up, and with five kids in tow moved to the Northern Suburbs. With her focus set firmly on her career and figuring out the best way to raise her children in the most safe and loving environment, she successfully started up and ran three hair salons.

So amazing was she at what she did that all her managers eventually went on to open their own salons – having learned from the best in the industry.

Baryl has since remarried and been running her only remaining branch in Kraaifontein for the last 29 years. She lives for the happiness of her family…and making her clients look and feel amazing every time.
