The MODE Team

Each member of our team brings many years of experience in their specific area and all in the comfort of an air conditioned, modern salon. We use the latest techniques, such as BT Micro-Therapy, and use a range of quality branded products from DermaFix Cosmeceuticals, CND Shellac, Brilliant-Tan, Dikson System Coiffeur, L’Oréal & Wella.

Claire Goode

Claire qualified as a beauty therapist in 1991 and has experience in the beauty, skin care and massage sector.

Running a salon is not a totally new experience for Claire. Since studying at Stellenbosch Academy and prior to starting her family, she owned multiple salons and beauty industry recruitment agencies both in South Africa and in the UK.

Yolande Knoesen

Yolande qualified in 2000 and works as a Master Stylist, having been in Hout Bay since 2011. She has also worked in salons in London, Johannesburg and Cape Town, since her training with Carlton Hair in 1997. Yolande also manages MODE.


A well known face in Hout Bay Widaad has joined the MODE team as an assistant manager and front desk/ receptionist. Widaad’s positive and wonderful sense of humour will welcome you on the phone or when you visit MODE.

Rocco Jon

Rocco is a Master Stylist having qualified in 1995. He left the Sandton and Waterfront boutiques for the comparably relaxed Hout Bay environment in 2014. He finds himself as busy here as he was before but with a much friendlier clientele (except of course for those that have followed him here!). Rocco is particularly skilled as a very experienced colourist.


Jackie has worked on cruise ships all over the world and in Constantia’s best known salons. She has recently been on updated training for new techniques in nails and skin care.


Yusra is our amazing salon assistant and has been with MODE since 2015. Her kindness and warmth along with her fabulous Indian Head Massage is an asset to MODE. Yusra works diligently to keep the salon flowing behind the scenes. She will also recognise your need for that glass of complimentary wine!
