Hair on Florida opened its doors in 2003 by the warm and endearing Lee McGill. What started as a small salon in a sectioned part of what is currently Nando’s on the road, has over the past six years grown into a thriving stand-alone salon offering quality hair, nail, and beauty services.

“I was born and brought up in this part of Durban. After many years of traveling and working abroad, I returned with my family and fell in love with the road and the area all over again. I could see the potential for it becoming the hub of Morningside so decided to set up shop here. The area is both residential and commercial, so it attracts locals and people that commute to the area for work or leisure. We love our neighbours, and all support each other and share a sense of community here. The buzz in Florida Road starts early in the morning and continues late into the evening, offering a range of services, shops, bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and clubs. This vibe on its own, attracts a variety of people often coming to the area for one thing, then seeing what’s on offer, they come back repeatedly” said Lee McGill, owner of Hair on Florida.

Lee says that there is so much that Florida Road has to offer and her dream for the area is that the collective effort and responsibility from everyone who has an interest there will help keep Florida Road the amazing place that it is and allow it to become even better as the years go by.
