Write because you want to, not because you have to.

Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle
If you are one who likes to pamper your hair by going to a salon, there is a (very high) chance that you've already got a hairdresser of choice - someone with whom you're really comfortable (I mean, you'd have to be - your hair is in their hands, literally!), someone whose opinion matters about your appearance and/or style, and someone who is professionally qualified in doing a job like hairdressing.
But here's why you absolutely *need* to go to the Tempest team and try something new:
1. Each and every single team member screams sass, class and sophistication. 2. The salon is like a wonderland with surprises in every corner
3. There are non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages available to you for free (yes, you read that right) while you are styled 4. You are in (extremely) qualified and good hands
The salon layout with painted floors
When I first walked in to Tempest, I thought I had got the address wrong. Sure, it had its name above the location, but it could've been any generic looking salon with glass doors and windows? Right?
Wrong. This salon is true to its name. Tempest has been set up to be presented like a number of literary giants had congregated together for a party of some sort. Everything from quirky to chic has been intertwined together to make this salon stand out to the point where it could become a tourist attraction.
It quickly became very apparent that whoever was the genius behind the interior design of this gorgeous dwelling was a die-hard fan of Alice In Wonderland (by Lewis Carroll). There is a lot of hard work that has been put into making this salon bright, unique, funky and attractive enough to make anyone who walks in through those doors to fall in love with.
The Tempest hair stylists doing what they do best!
While I was new to the salon, I was served by a gorgeous lady (Monique) who has been my hairdresser for a little over three years now and has recently moved between salons. While I was tossing up the options of what I'd like to have done to my hair, I noticed that the other team members were extremely friendly and encouraged me to go for a new look, while still making sure that it was doable and appropriate, given my limitations faced by work and/or personal values. Everyone at Tempest is very respectful and they all make sure that each of their customers is well-looked after.
While the salon has quirky, loud colours splattered throughout, don't be fooled by it all. The hairdressers (when not working on a client) can be noticed to clean up the salon every 20 minutes or so, sweeping and mopping the floors, making sure things are tucked away in their usual spots, and generally keeping the salon looking presentable, neat and tidy at all times.
The hair wash station with an impressive feature wall!
While getting my hair washed at the station pictured above, I noticed that the owner of the salon had decided to keep the remnants of this former bank alive by incorporating its structures (such as cash registers, stairways, and tall poles) into the salon's interior design. I loved how there were little surprises in the form of items, structures and designs that you wouldn't normally find in a salon, nestled so perfectly nonetheless.
No matter what you decide to get done to your hair, you can be rest assured that you will feel like and be treated like a royal prince / princess in the best manner possible. With a great staff, excellent skills and qualifications, and a fantastic backdrop, the salon experience at Tempest could not get any better!
And like every hair salon, you can also be assured that Tempest will strive to use only the best of the best hair products that are carefully picked out to suit your hair style / colour. Plus, they make your hair smell positively delicious.

If you ever find yourself scouring through the little town of Adelaide for a salon that has lots more to offer than "just a haircut" experience, then make sure you give Tempest a ring. You can walk into a magical world filled with happiness, class, and fashion, and leave looking like a powerful king / queen who will stop everyone on the street with a new-found sense of individuality via a bold statement.
Tempest is a magical wonderland where dreams come true
