While visiting Port-of-Spain over Christmas for some much needed sorrel, parang and hot sun, I paid a visit to the boutique on Ariapita Avenue in Woodbrook, specializing in carrying most of the popular local and international hair care brands. This is of course “Body Beautiful on d’Avenue”.
Upon walking in, I was immediately impressed at how much the store had expanded and the number of brands that they have added. As a matter of fact, I think they have one of the largest collection of natural products on the island, and rivals stores in the US for variety.
I chatted with the lovely owner, Alison Goddard, who emphasized that she wanted to give Trinbagonians quality, proven choices and she has included 10, yes 10, locally-made natural brands.
These include Happy Curls, Happy Girls, Kylex Naturals, Eco-Truffles, The Mixtress J Cosmetics and Yousentials. Of course you can get foreign brands like Oyin Handmade, Giovanni, CURLS, Alikay Naturals, Design Essentials, As I Am, Carol’s Daughter, Eden BodyWorks, Afexan and Shea Moisture (they have both the Jamaican Black Castor Oil and the Manuka Honey collections).
Also, you can get professional hair services here. On Monday’s, Renee is available for consults and on Wednesday’s, it is Dara.
I also met Cheryl-Ann Phillips-Gonzales, of Chrysalis Image Consulting, who is there a couple of days a week and provides image services. She also was responsible for the lovely gift packages available at the store!
So, visit the store for your hair care needs and check out Body Beautiful on d’Avenue on Facebook, to keep up to date with all the new happenings and events!
