Yes we do hair, we are bloody brilliant at it but there are limitations and you have to understand if it sounds too good to be true it probly is. The sad reality is some people will read this and think it is in fact true.
Drop into our salon and let’s discuss fact & fiction
You are either out of internet coverage or live under a rock if you haven’t seen what’s going on in American this week that is and will effect the world. Everyone has an opinion and we certainly have ours but what’s most disturbing is the shift in what is considered ok in terms of human treatment.
You can’t put everyone in the same box, I see it as do I’m sure a lot of others do too but daily we all do it and it’s just plain wrong.
Just because of your faith doesn’t make you a terrorist, being born in a certain country doesn’t make you violent, born into a certain cast or specific area be a certain type of person. Light skin, dark skin that, fat be this, skinny be that, tall this, short that it’s just plain black and white descrinination! Justify it in your head, I’m sure you can but at the end of the day it’s wrong!
The features on your face, the clothes you wear or the point in which you reach vertically to the length of your hair, your beauty is unique, it’s individual and your you. Yet we have people screaming descrimination for Trump when daily we see the same thing happen. The difference is I guess the old train of thought where these “old school” ( should retire and step aside) people were and I say we’re literally, years ago relevant as too would be the rasist attitude of Trump and his supporters.
It’s 2017, what feels like the verge of either civil war or global tensions being at the highest point for decades. We have to reset all our mindset on everything, what religious faith you have, skin color, where you were born, your skin color, height, weight and everything in between and start treating people as individuals not trying to put them in a box when you have no idea who they are.
When you place an order on line and it says shipping more than 24-48 hours you feel robbed right? Well imagine your hairdresser saying your hair can’t take a chemical service, a color, that keratin you so desperately want because it’s too damaged…. upset maybe even angry.
We believe there are times when we have to say no, it’s about being ethical and respecting there are times when what you want is not actually what you want. Sure we assure you there is a salon within walking distance from every “no” you get that will do whatever you want, but we are only interested in making you look the best possible.
If your hair has been taken over the edge and the condition sucks as Donald Trumps concept of humanity then here are the things you need to do.
Get yourself a second opinion from the best salon you can find, not cutting nothing just a consultation.
Depending on how bad it is the only option may be cutting it, lots of options for repairing however the only true way to get it back to healthy may be cutting the damage off.
Don’t do another chemical service to fix the one that ruined your hair.
The term “hair spa” sadly is used for a conditioner massage. Waste of time and money. Olaplex and various bond rebuilders work, hair spa doesn’t.
Always use a leave in serum
Avoid any oils always!
Don’t use excessive heat when styling.
Trim every 5-6 weeks until the hair is healthy again.
Remember a professional salon will never charge you for advice, it’s free so use it!
You end up picking up what seems like handfuls of hair every time you shampoo your hair? Are you suffering from sudden hair loss? Do you think if this continues you will be bald by mid next week?
Stop acting like a baby, your not going to be bald any time soon let’s help explain the facts based on science and not on trying to rename a treatment or shampoo as “hair loss”. We get asked daily about hair loss and to be honest a lot of salons, product companies etc make a lot ( I mean a LOT ) of money with hair fall specific treatments or products that do didly squat ( nothing ) to your hair.
You have approx 100,000-150,000 hairs on your head at any given point
Your normal shedding of hair is approx 100-125 per day
If you shower every third day then when you wash you will see 300-375 hairs in your hands because each day it’s been falling but stuck in amoungst the other hair.
Conditioner does NOT make your hair fall out, it closes the cuticle and hence makes the loose hair slip out
Washing it daily not only won’t make it fall out but WILL help keep your scalp clean
Hair fall shampoo’s…. use a Sulfate free shampoo good for everyone, color or no color, keratin or no keratin. It’s low in detergent and gentle on scalp.
Hair loss increases in seasons so whilst it may increase in short term long term it will settle.
Medicine if your body has a deficiency however 100-125 is normal and no medicine will stop that.
Water quality can cause hair fall yes, only real solution is washing in filtered water
Putting any oil on your scalp is a complete waste of time and in fact can increase hair fall by altering the ph level of your scalp. It’s never reccomended and is one of those tales handed down generation after generation.
Can anything increase hair growth? NO you an try standing in a bucket of water thinking it will help you increase your height, chances are if enough people said it worked you may try it.
There now clean the drain get some Sulfate free products, put the oil in the kitchen and cancel your “specialist” appointment lol
So a lot of you take the lap top to bed, be checking Facebook & Instagram before sleeping and wonder why there isn’t much else happening under the covers. Well if your at that stage we can’t help because your probly reading this when your bae is beside you, what we can do is make your life complete with getting the other type of bangs
Yes it’s true bangs are the easiest and quickest way to change your look so what happens if you have bangs?
Off line bangs
This is when you take your current bangs and blend them in with the rest of your hair when styling. Doesn’t matter if it’s short or long it can be done quickly and creatively.
So before you start ordering costumes online to spice things up why not take yourself and your bangs offline
It’s a routine we all hopefully do daily and yet there are some people who still think it’s ok to do it, they use it openly and still ask why every 6 weeks. It’s cheap it’s big, it’s easy so why not?
We are talking about using Sulfate free shampoo! We use and reccomend Alfa Parf which is free from nasty Sulfates and parabins which will strip your hair color that you spend all that time and money on, dilute the intensity, possibly dry out your scalp as well as your hair!
So for about the same as your drug store shampoo you get a product that is not only going to gaurentee your color lasts the way it’s meant too but will look after the condition better also. Sure it doesn’t bubble up so much you can rumble around like your in a bubble bath but aren’t you meant to be washing your hair and not playing in the shower?
We’re always talking about what’s hot and what’s trending but what if you’re not blessed with a head of hair?
Here, we break down the best styles for men with thinning hair. Let’s face it, topknots and quiffs have had their day – who needs hair anyway?
A little more tailored than the traditional buzz cut, this style is cool for men who are thinning on top. The step between the shaved sides and top section is faded in slightly ( but you can go a full blown taper or fade too! )and there’s enough length and texture through the top to allow for a soft, smart finish. The best thing about this style is that it requires minimal effort to create each morning – after washing a little towel dry some matte texturising clay and your done.
You may be only in desperate need to cover the back area of your head but the front is still there whilst is disappearing by the day at the crown, the clever way to create the illusion of a thicker, fuller head of hair all. David Beckham’s cut is high and tight at the back and sides but has plenty of length through the top. The difference in length, together with the way it’s swept back, helps create the impression of a volume.
The close shave
If your like Jason Statham, your follicle situation is weak, then fluffing about what little you have left can look a bit like an old man clinging for his life doing a comb over! Instead, embrace the bald and go buzz cut. Not only does this look fresh and sharp, but it’s super easy to maintain!
Lots of rumours around this head of hair, apparently it’s not real and in fact made from cut hair from barbie dolls ( made in China ) to the fact that there is a consistent regrowth that is the same in every photo. Could this be true?
Is the leader of the free world’s hair actually be as fake as his tan that obviously out of a can?
We spoke to NASA engineers and they confirmed the indastructable style can withstand wind, rain, hail, scorching heat and countless meme’s. They have confirmed they are collaborating with him on a new shuttle shield based on his 1hour daily routine of styling.
Obviously this guy has no idea how to run a country but we are thinking he should be doing some styling sessions at the local retirement home helping old men look like they have hats on.
At the end of the day, no one cares about the hair, it’s only the content that comes out of your mouth, in his case it’s verbal sewerage.
Can someone who spends this long on there hair be trusted? We say no!
I don’t know when the day your average consumer will wake up and realise the utter crap some people shove down your mouth like it’s French fries 🍟
The sad reality is most dumb people believe it, the stupid Ines doing it and the stupid ones buying into it. We see miracles that can make your hair silky in 10 minutes, the cheapest and the best this or that and yet no one wonders how? It’s called marketing if you were in 1980 but I guess thats another conversation, the cheaper faster best era where everyone claimed to be the best and the cheapest until the consumer got smarter and realised they wanted salons they could relate too and communication become more about reality than selling crap!
Bar code standard talk is almost scripted and funnily I know people who teach scrips, this is a personal industry and words have to evolve organically. The only way that can happen is by education and not teaching scripts or standard one size fits all hairdressing.
Words of wisdom, educate yourself and research salons not just browse a Facebook post it’s your hair. Personality sells
You meet and can hardly keep your hands off each other to make coffee and a few months/Year later you meet with a little peck. You get your color done and it’s as hot and deep as your hottest one night stand, several weeks later it’s faded and as lifeless as your sex life!
Don’t worry we can help you with getting your color intensity back, the other stuff you will need to work on yourself but I suggest getting your color on will help you feel hot so who knows!
Alfa Parf have created Pigments ( don’t worry its s professional product so no technical info is here just the awesome results)
It work as direct color pigment and is more gentle than your regular color as it’s watered down with shampoo or can be added in with your regular color also! It creates longer lasting depth more than regular colors.
You can do it as a quick service I. Between your regular colors to freshen up the intensity so you don’t have to damage your ends doing unnecessary “global colors” that will damage and cost you money you can spend on candles or flavoured lube to fix you other problems, well because we fix hair rest is up to you to get back on track.
So now you have no reason to have faded color. Available in multiple reflects!
Imagine your out, some serious shit goes down and the description given for the offender is so basic it could be 99% of the population. Hope your following it so far, the trick is being unique or you may be pinned with something that you didn’t do so a new look is as much for you as it is for your safety!
Please make sure if your going to do the wrong thing that you visit us afterwards.
We all saw them on social media and probably all thought the same ( won’t be that cool in real life ) but we recently got a shipment from Alfa Parf Milano and tried them out and must say it’s better in person, it’s amazing! Condition, tone and longevity it is awesome!
We managed to convince Lir ( which didn’t take much as she loves experimenting with her color, in for a yellow neon which is the first time in India.
Now can we predict that these cool colors will be a daily sight across the streets of India? Probly not because not everyone is this cool but you will be seeing more from us so make sure you are following Rod Anker Salons and Rod Anker.
If your up for a eye catching color then give us a shout.
You saw a photo of silky soft hair and thought yes, I want that now your left with hair that looks like frizz and neither straight or curly.
Expectations vs reality are at times different and yes the stylist should have explained it and been more truthful but whatever the issue was it needs to be fixed. Here are some solutions but we recommend visiting a professional salon to determine exactly what is needed.
If it’s rebonding it could be over processed which means your hair is on the verge of snapping. Olaplex will prevent it to some extent however removing some length may be only option.
If it’s keratin it may have reduced the curl, depending on how curly it was to start with. This may be the success and final result as best you can achieve.
You may have had too much color applications on top of each other which has caused the hair structure to be too weak to restructure itself.
Will a ” series of hair spa ” treatments fix this? Easy answer is never
If the structure of the hair is Brocken so badly that hair comes off ( snaps off, not from roots but mid lengths ) then the only two options you have is to either cut it off or have consistent Olaplex or similar treatments which will rebuild and strengthen it enough to hold it together until it’s cut off.
Sadly some salons push such chemical services based on increasing revenue with little regard for quality of your hair or result and when things go south they will tell you a series of hair spa treatments will fix it. It won’t.
Before you do any chemical service do your research and remember if the hair has had any color at all and that hasn’t been cut off regardless if it looks natural, it’s still there and needs to be treated with care.
There is never a day go by that someone doesn’t walk into a salon in some corner of the world and want hairstylists to perform miracles by adding volume. Yes it’s not always the most suitable fave shape to carry it off but we all want what we want right?
So let’s just imagine by adding fullness it will suit your face shape.
Dropping a few tricks to help you out so your not having to sleep upside down hoping it stays like that during the day.
Shampoo your hair regularly so oiliness doesn’t build up.
Use a light conditioner only on ends
A volumizing powder really really works, adds volume for hours
Dry your hair upside down or standing upright lifting it directly vertical when styling.
Dry shampoo helps give a little grit to the hair adding volume.
If the weight is heavy no matter what you do it will go flop, add layers or texture it helps.
Remove some length this will lighten the load and help give it more volume.
The right cut can make all the difference but a little tool like “dust it” by Label M helps create the fullness that maintains the shape longer. Get some hands on tricks and suggestions from your stylist next time you get a blow out.
Hairdressing is such a personal service, your getting something that is on your body so it’s personal even if you don’t think it is, it is.
We believe that running our hands through your hair is kind of a privilege, one that has to be earnt and is not something that can be bought to the highest bidder ( or the lowest price tag )
The biggest problem for hairdressing is communication, finding out what is going on in your mind, even at times when you don’t even know, it’s about asking the right questions. You will go into the salon when your either bored or need “Maintainence” ( the obvious need for color regrowth or hair is literally in your eyes ) OR your just bored and it’s been a while and at times both.
Now obviously the hairdresser has to have the technical skills to be touching your hair but equally as important they have to know how to communicate with you, it goes far beyond the pretty photos they show you or the perfectly priced menu. Choosing a salon or stylist isn’t like ordering food from a menu or getting your house built from a plan it’s completely 100% a personal service that comes down to personality!
How do you choose the right salon & stylist?
Well that requires thought and a little effort because as we said earlier it’s not just about photos and price so you should be visiting and talking to them before you completely trust a new salon. A great way to start if your considering a salon is a consultation, all salons in every part of the world will offer free consultations, it’s not new, it’s a sit down chat to discuss your hair. Choose the stylist your after make the consultation booking and see how you feel after the talk. The questions asked, the solutions offered etc. At times hairstylist will say they can do things from turn your hair from black to white in one sitting to give volume to the three hairs on your head, remember there is fact and fiction it’s your hair.
Ask about upkeep
Ask about condition
After that go away and ask yourself if this is the right salon for you.
Your personality is your gold and shows the world who you are and your true self. In a world that craves an outlet as much as we do attention we have to go out of our way to express how we feel.
It’s not about selfies but it’s ok if it is, it’s about doing whatever you want. Doesn’t matter if your a hairdresser showcasing your work, a avid traveller showing the places you have visited or just someone who likes taking photos it’s about personality. Show your individuality and have fun!
Bangs, short cropped, long blunt, thin, thick it’s all about the bang but this one will last longer than your last one 😝 See more bangin inspiration
Guys don’t break out into a cold sweat you have some good news. Taper cuts & quiff’s it’s all retro. If your a rule breaker the 80’s bowl is back but not for the lighthearted or insecure. More taper ideas
Beach curls, although we saw our social media timelines infected with “how to get the perfect beach curls” it will still be happening this year.
Neon colors yes glow in the dark color is a very new and super cool thing that’s happened. Not for everyone but if you have a per unicorn 🦄 then this is for you!
Turn me off in 2017
We will all be crossing our fingers and toes and hopefully stop seeing
Overdone hair, set looking hair
Hair that looks unhealthy
Asymmetrical haircuts! So done
Bad ombré that looks more like a bad DIY
Yep these last ones drive is crazy but hoping not to see as much this year.
So you think that leaving your hair dry naturally is better than using a dryer well let us explain why its not
Although some stylists often recommend sleeping in damp braids to get beachy waves, turns out air-drying may be more harmful than blow-drying: Water causes strands to swell; over time, this could weaken hair from the inside out. In the study, hair samples that were shampooed and then air-dried for two hours were compared to those blasted at various temperatures. Only the air-dried samples had significant damage to the cell membrane complex, the cement that holds cuticle layers together. That’s not to say that dryers can be used without harm: As the temperature of the air increased, the study found, so did the damage to the outer layers of each strand. The healthiest option, if not the speediest, is to dry on the lowest heat setting, with the dryer held at least six inches away from the head.
So instead of trying the easy braid on wet hair and trying to get it overnight, maybe its time to learn how to do it with a hairdryer and a large curling iron.
If your planning a trip away or a holiday, half your luck but what is going to happen to your hair or how is your color going to be in the climate your going too? Is the water going to cause the color to fade?
A few days we can all live with and it’s all good but using the hotel products although some smell great are far from the best to use for maintaining color.
Things to pack
Get some small bottles from your local chemist and transfer enough for the time your away
Take a few hair ties to add options in case you don’t want to blow dry ( your o. Holidays )
Any styling products, keep in mind if your swimming you should be taking a leave in conditioner and a serum.
A wide tooth comb, sounds basic but most hotels don’t have them in there in room kit.
Dry shampoo, to help you get away without having to shampoo.
Now your all ready, make sure you have visited your salon just before you leave so any color Maintainence is done and will get you through your trip without stress.
Do you spend countless hours on line searching all things from how to bake the perfect banana bread to filling out travel horoscopes?
You won’t say yes out loud, but I know your as bored af and it’s ok everyone gets bored from time to time.Is your version of a “touch up” getting your color done?
Ok so let’s make sure you don’t get so bored you end up trying to lighten up your hair with lemon juice and household bleach and help you shop for a new color for your hair!
We are going to make this super easy for you so you can stop thinking and first thing tomorrow can book in for your new hair color.
Are you able to return to the salon for Maintainence every month?
YES -Great your ok with it then cool your options are wide open.
No -Your a realist that’s awesome, best for highlights maybe some ombré or sombre but subtle and not too much happening at the top so you can skip a month or two before getting any touch ups.
Do you want people to notice it or does the color need to be subtle ( this means natural, not in your face and looks expensive )
I want everyone to see it- Your options are mermaid pastel combination to a natural base to add depth
Needs to be subtle – Ok so whatever your doing the color can’t be more than two shade difference from your natural color.
It’s never about what others think because if your happy in your own skin then no matter what you do it will look good if you have the right attitude. So if it’s pastel then decide what tone, if it’s a natural color then it’s just a matter of matching your natural color and maybe you want to add a little lighter variation on ends then your ready to book in and finish the chat and get your new look.
Recently someone we know got some extensions done, the keratin bonded onto the root area of your hair. It sounds like an instant fix and no waiting for hair to grow but here are the facts.
You see the little white bulbs at the bottom? That’s the hair roots that have been pulled out because the extensions were done too tightly.
We don’t do extensions for this exact reason and whilst people think it’s great, if done perfectly then it really can be an overnight success however typically a problem in application can cause the next 6-12 months of problems for you far greater than the extra length you were after.
This was done by a National trainer of a hair extension brand that trains all the hairstylist in the country.
In most civilized parts of the world hairdressing in a trade that requires schooling, typically anything from 1-3 years depending on if it’s hands on or a college based curriculum. Now given the hours, weeks, months of study let alone hours and hours of practical which includes science of hair, body and nutrition it’s hard to believe someone can just walk to the fridge pull out some left overs and poof, your hair is left feeling like new!
Sure we all see DIY posts on YouTube or Facebook from some very eager kids thinking they have discovered the atom bomb or debuged a myth that the human make up of hair and science was wrong, or that they saw papaya on the list of ingredients so they will mash one up and use it as a hair mask.
Wake up please!
Hair is dead keratin, it’s dead! Yes you can maintain the health or more like condition of the dead keratin by using certain products, use them a certain way etc but putting food scraps on your head is not going to perform miracles.
Myths around putting oil on your hair still get thrown around with people explaining why they think it works but wondering why there hair feels like straw.
A solid hair care regime that includes regular shampooing ( every second day with the right products ) and conditioning every time. A leave in conditioner or serum ( depending on quality & texture of hair ) along with trim’s every 6-8 weeks then there is no reason to panic or have bad hair. We see a lot of people getting things done they either don’t need or shouldn’t be doing when in some situations not doing it would be better for your hair e.g.; your getting your regrowth color done and instead of just doing the roots you get it taken right thru the ends when it didn’t really need to be done ( over processing already coloured hair )
Before you stumble across a pretty little DIY video on you tube and think your life has changed and flit off to the market to get some eggs, fruit and oil for your miracle hair mask think please visit a good salon and ask what can be done to get shinny hair or softer more conditioned hair. Chances are there are several things you can do that will work instantly.
When we talk about learning manners it goes a fair way past just learning which hand to wipe your butt with. Since your parents were too busy worrying about who you were going to to the movies with thinking it was a global concern rather than teaching you to wear your seatbelt, not staring at people to not burping in public.
We thought we should outline some salon etiquette so you can stay and enjoy the music & the sick AF hair your going to get. The following is kind of basic but you may not have heard it before as it actually happens;
Don’t turn up 50 min late saying you tried to call but the phone was busy, guess what no one believes you
Walk in late then ask how long it’s going to take, guess what it’s going to take how long it takes
Don’t burp or fart in a salon, it’s just not cool
When asked for tea or coffee don’t request someone to run to subway and get you your lunch while your waiting ( your legs aren’t painted on are they?
A trim and a cut, well guess what…. it is the same cost.
If your hair reaches your knees, you don’t want to cut layers, length or color it but want a total change. Your dillusional please leave stage left
Run late then take a phone call and make us wait another 10 min?
You don’t need to bring your aunt, maid, driver and your body Gaurds aren’t really required are they?
An AK47, seriously if you don’t trust us then we have a problem! No one in here wants to kill you
If you use the toilet, please aim roughly in the bowl.
Well if the above sounds like a walk in the park then we look forward to seeing you soon, don’t need to bring a packed lunch or your own shampoo, we use what we sell and recommend and we don’t water it down.
We are not talking about VPL ( Visable Panty Line ) rather talking about being transparent in the way you behave, too often the motives take over and it becomes a game of skill to get what you want, using people as the pawns rather than the required skill to actually do a good job! When you think about being transparent with hair, we could turn this into a short film but rather lets just point out why some times we say no to doing certain things and the reason we do this is because its about being the best for you and your hair.
When it comes to your hair, we only have one motivation and that is to create beautiful hair that works both for that split moment in time when you leave the salon but more importantly for the time after you leave the salon! There are some things we wont do like rebonding or straightening as it is too damaging on the hair, there are times when you may want to do a chemical service but we do not believe your hair health will be maintained so we will say no. We do this because we look after your hair’s best interest.
Isn’t it more important to do things right once rather than having something done that requires the next 4-6 months fixing it or repairing it?
Drop into one of our salons for a honest chat about your hair
In a world that is changing every day at a rate that almost no one can stay on top of, its more important than ever that you stand out both in personality as well as your Look yet a lot of people tend to follow the crowd almost like its easier than showing there true self. Not saying its all about your pastel hair and your OTT cut, its about what you like and what makes you feel the best ( yes that can be the most on point cut too ). The best cut you will ever have is one that will suit not only your face and hair type but your personality as well!
The true definition of Crazy is doing the same thing day in day out and constantly thinking you will get a different result, yet we all see it daily in all of our lives, we have companies spending so much on advertising the same way year after year and expecting it to somehow keep us interested? Hardly! A new phone comes out, we all want it for its one extra life changing feature, a month later we are over it and looking for the next new thing so it goes without saying we have to keep evolving and growing in everything we do to stay interesting and interested.
What would you do different if you had nothing to loose?
When it comes to marketing we all are inundated with ” we are the best ” type marketing. I know when looking for anything be it a product or service I look into everything before making a decision.
How can you trust a company who says they are leaders but behave like a mum and pop shop?
Today our lives are under the microscope 24/7 you comment on a photo on line and everyone can see it, you eat out and everyone knows what you ate so it’s super important that more effort than ever before is made to not only stand out but be in the position to deliver what you say you will do, because its one thing to say your the best in fact its easy but its another to be able to deliver it day in day out.
In today’s world we have to rely on our own research in finding out things, stuff and and with the internet we all think we have the knowledge of a Guru however experience will always carry more weight than theory so only trust professionals when it comes to services.
If your like most people every now and then you get dished up something and put it in your mouth, slowly roll it around thinking I really don’t want this but it almost feels too late to just spit it out! It could have been at a relatives house for dinner or after a night swiping right on tinder.
Getting your hair done should never leave a bad taste in your mouth, or leaving the salon thinking wtf did I do in my life to deserve this. The best advice we have is simply spit it out, if your asking the question then it’s kind of obvious you should spit right?
Don’t be lame and choose awesome, choose to take all the hair goodness we have to offer.

We are referring to getting a head full of awesome hair
In life at times things get a little let’s just say blah, doesn’t matter if we are talking about work or relationships we have to make an effort to keep ourselves interested and interesting. With our hair we tend to get busy and forget to evolve our look from year to year let alone season to season and it takes effort and planning to do it.
Nothing like the first month of the year to get ourselves into a new chapter and change our look, it not only keeps you looking on point but keeps life interesting.

If your thinking of a fresh new do then give us a call and we can sit and discuss options or plan out how to take the step over the next few sessions so it’s not so dramatic.
What crap! Give me a week on the beach any day I say, but I do know that feeling when life has become a little boring, your routine has become more like a checklist rather than a life. Well maybe it’s time to spice things up?
Yes there are a lot of things that can heat things up, but we are talking hair you flithy little animals
If you have been putting a change on hold then January is the perfect time to jump and make the changes you want to see in your life! Log out of Tinder, turn off netflix and get your butt off the couch and get the change you deserve for this year in 2017!
Anyone who has ended up with a color that looks like you did it yourself will attest that coloring hair is an art and needs to be done right the first time! Unlike coloring a wall or a canvas, each time you color your hair damage is done that can not be reversed completely.
Some of the key things to keep in mind when choosing the right color are…
Upkeep, are you happy to get it redone when it’s needed? Some colors would need a lot of Maintainence whilst others very little. Ask about price, products needed etc etc
The nylon swatches are an indication, they are close but it doesn’t work like choosing a color for your walls, depending on your hair current hair color, the history of color your hair has been through on the result so if your not being asked these questions then you really need to re think your salon choice.
Whilst some brands claim to be Amonia free, they refer to the tube of color that is yet to be mixed with the higher amonia to activate it before it goes on your hair.
Some colors can not be done or achieved without implications or possibly done over time and not able to be done in one sitting. A good stylist will tell you.
Your skin tone is one thing yes, some of the other factors that can determine if a color will suit you are personality, lifestyle, hair texture to name a few. It’s not just skin color.
Understand color names for goodness sake!! Red and gold and different colors, red isn’t gold and gold isn’t red. A warm color is as the name suggests it’s warm ( red, gold, copper, mahogany, yellow magenta etc etc). A cool color is as the name suggest it’s cool ( ash, silver, blue etc ).
Ask questions before getting it done but JUST AS IMPORTANT listen! If your stylist is saying don’t do it then maybe they have a good reason, if there are things to consider then consider them then.
Don’t shop on a budget and expect a magazine cover result, it’s NEVER going to happen. Cheap is cheap!
Remember that any business that requires you to cut out a coupon, the main focus is typically not about result. Do your research google is free!
It’s 3am and you must be lonely, but we know that there are some night owls out there that take pride in stalking the internet for things be it the perfect little black dress, the perfect holiday destination to OMG I need my color done! Nothing will keep you awake more than realizing you skipped your hair appointment and now look a tad gastly.
We know you, we are kinda weird too so thought it best to give you a few heads up in case this is your reality and by 10am you have forgotten. It’s far better to be looking for references for hair goals than swiping left or right ( don’t know which lol ) on other app’s if you know what I’m saying.
No we are not open 24/7

Everyone has there one prize possession, for some it’s there indepedance or there free spirit for others it’s there vintage Birkin. Some people take there BFF to the salon and they wait whilst getting there hair done others reserve a few extra chairs ( one for there bag, one for there maid, one for security and one extra for there sunglasses)
Some will read this I’m sure and think WTF do people actually do this, some will read this and say of course either way we proudly don’t do ” plus one for my bag”
Whilst we are loving the look and love your 3 story perfectly curated closet, sadly most establishments don’t allocate extra seating for your fetish.
Tips for how to walk around town and care for your over loved bag.
Be happy to put in on the floor
Have your entourage care for it
Leave it in the car, it’s not the runway, it’s a salon we don’t really care what bag you own or don’t own.
Carry a backpack, maybe the type Dora the explorer carries, its way cooler fits in everything and will turn more heads than your vintage OTT BAG.
A lot of people peak there motivation for 12 months between 12.01am on the 1st January to about lunchtime on 2nd then go back into the same habbits both mentally as well as physically. Different people say different things about how long it takes to create intention into a habit and reform behavior but I guess we are all human and it’s easy to just think F#%* it whatever.
If your feeling like crap,be it your stupid boss, your crappy boyfriend or girlfriend or just simply aren’t feeling it then a visit to the salon for a little makeover and a change may be just the answer.
If your bed has two sides we suggest you push it up against the wall so youbonoy get out of the right side and keep your salon visits to every 6 weeks that way your setting yourself up for success!
Recently there was a discovery of epic proportions that a shoe size in the UK is different to US and completly different from manufacturer to manufacturer ( let’s just say this was a new discovery for the only person left on the planet who didnt know )
Just like different parts of the world decided to screw your happiness over shoe sizes we all are very different when it comes to both physical as well as emotionally. A “short” haircut in LA will be a completely different version of short in Bangladesh or Delhi, I guess again this is not a new concept.
The key to getting it right is communication and an in depth discussion with your stylist over what your version is, be it length or color etc. A lot of the time when things go wrong with hair it’s generally lack of understanding from both parties.
Few helpful ways to help
Save some photos from Pinterest or Instagram of the length, color that you like
Save some that you don’t like
Go in before your appointment day and discuss it in detail if the salon doesn’t do an in depth consultation.
Don’t order your new look like your order extra bread rolls at the bakery
And remember that everyone is different, color, size, beliefs and everything in between that’s what makes this world incredible.
