Business Information

tourism member



Reon Da Costa was born in Pretoria and has always had a passion for hairdressing and styling.

With numerous hairdressing certifications behind his name, Reon is currently in the process of becoming a moderator and assessor which will allow him to empower future hairdressers.

Opening Escala Hair Emporium was a lifelong dream come true, and he decided from the beginning that the salon would always be a tranquil space, where each appointment is the centre of his attention. With this in mind, most of Reon’s appointments are exclusively one-on-one.

I highly recommend Reon for my much-needed makeover and for taking care of my new locks. Extremely good value for money. Book your spot, you won’t be disappointed”  Almarie Leimecke
