A CUT ABOVE

Blade Hairclub, on Frith Street

in the heart of London’s Soho,

is an innovative bar and hair

concept set to transform our

future trips to the salon, with

a unique combination of

highly-skilled hairdressing and

expertly-stocked bar.

Blade offers you the chance

to experience hairclubbing – whether it’s catching up with friends

over blow-dries and wine, relaxing with Netflix whilst waiting for

your highlights to develop, or simply enjoying an Old Fashioned

during your cut.

Created by stylist Julia Olofsson and musician-turned-entrepreneur

D.T. Stroo, Blade Hairclub was born from their desire to create a

happy, unpretentious and friendly place to get your hair done and

hang out – alone or with friends.

The cellar bar serves a noteworthy selection of cocktails, whiskies,

biodynamic wines and craft beer while the espresso bar has single-

origin coffee and cold-pressed juices made fresh to order while a

turntable plays blues, soul and jazz vinyls selected by Stroo. iPads

are attached to each salon chair, so clients can browse and shop,

binge-watch Netflix, or work remotely from the comfort of the salon.

Suddenly, a trip to the hairdresser becomes fun!

SPICE OF LIFE

Zanzibar – the hottest new island paradise for property investors

Zanzibar, known as the Spice Island, is a semi-autonomous string of islands some 25-50 kilometres

off the coast of Tanzania. It has long been popular with local divers and snorkellers, thanks to its

rich offering of coral, dolphins and tropical fish.

Now, the unspoilt island paradise is also attracting keen interest from residential property

investors, as an exclusive new gated development springs up on the main island of Unguja.

The Fumba Town Development has properties ranging from three-bedroom duplexes with pools

to five-bedroom townhouses with roof decks and ground-level pools. Unguja is a wonderfully-

unspoilt island and the development is perfect for anyone looking for a peaceful place to escape to.

Spectacular sunsets, secluded sandy beaches, local snorkelling and a mangrove forest provide

a wonderful sense of isolation, while fibre-optic internet, an on-site security team and a host of

amenities take care of practical needs.

“Zanzibar is one of those wonderful locations that is on the cusp of being ‘discovered’ by

international tourism, but currently remains almost untouched,” says Ray Withers, CEO, Property

Frontiers. “Tourism figures are rising and it enjoys the strong stability of the Tanzanian economy in

the background, which adds significant weight to the potential of the investment.”

The first homes at Fumba Town will be completed by mid-2018.

Investors looking to get ahead of the curve can purchase them now, with three-bedroom duplexes

priced from $159,900 and five-bedroom seafront townhouses starting from $289,900

LORD ALAN SUGAR

The self-made millionaire

businessman and host of BBC’s

The Apprentice

, reflects on his

business life.

“I’ve made loads of mistakes,

trust me – it’s just that

they have not been that

popularised. I’ve made

products that bombed.”

“I don’t believe men and

women differ significantly

but some women certainly

seem to have that killer

instinct. I find women

get on with things much

quicker and don’t waste time

jockeying for positions by

spelling out how good they

are, what they’ve done, what

they’ve got. That’s a man’s

trait.”

“I stick to what I know,

something I have experience

in. I don’t start a business

just because it sounds like a

good idea or fashionable.”
