When your mouth says lead singer but your hair says Chartered Accountant 

Let’s be honest most guys are lazy and we are fantastic at lip service but lack a lot on the follow through.


It’s like you tell everyone you take no prisoners and your the fizz but reality is your more fizzle and most likely sit at home on a Friday doing crosswords than out painting the town red ( although good for you If your a crossword buff 🙊 )

It’s a problem when your haircut says Chartered Accountant but your mouth says lead singer in a rock band 😳. There are more than two options, because you think that there is either a side part or an undercut is the first of your woes, then you have those of who can’t decide end up doing both and shaving a line to cover all bases.

Rod Anker judges for Pantene & Vogue 

Pantene were on the search for the countries strongest hair for a get together with Priyanka Chopra and who else but our own main main Rod to help find the right heads of hair!


From Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mumbai the finalists are now selected. There was vast variation in hair quality throughout the country but if I could offer everyone the same advice is regular trims every 6-8 weeks says Rod.


This removes any split ends that are appearing and will help you maintain length and condition.

What does it take to keep your girl like a princess

Now no one can say it’s one thing and it rarely is, there will always be annoying Habbits that you or your partner will not love but a little conscious effort goes a long way.


Putting the seat down after going to the can isn’t you being sensitive, holding the door open is respectful but not going to do it, thinking of her before you when out shopping is expected, remembering when it’s that time of the month and making sure her favourite food is at arms reach is normal. So then what the hell can you do right?

You can start with all of the above, everyday that’s a good start but it’s like this if you have found the one, what would you to to make them the happiest person on planet earth? Answer would be anything I guess but it’s not about sacrificing anything because it’s about being the best person for you as much as it is about being the best person for her. Clean up in the kitchen, pick up your crap, make sure you get a haircut before being told you look like a homeless baseplayer, not scolding her or irritating each other when your tired. It’s a lot of thing and nothing all at the same time.

If you can’t text back on time, or leave work early to make sure you’re there for her when needed, are you really doing everything possible?

It’s not about expensive gifts, it could be but rarely is, it’s not about your job or your background it’s about the way she will feel around you. It’s about you being the best and giving her the freedom, encouragement  to blossom and be her best.

Life has restrictions that we know but it’s about a synergy and rythym you both have together that works. Guys pick up the slack and step up to give all you can to treat her like the process she is.

Hair is our focus

It’s not rocket science that when you concentrate on one thing, you get good at it compared to trying to be the best at everything and end up being average. We do hair, everything to do with it and it’s all we do, we are known for it and we are fairly good at it let’s just say that much.

Looking for a Men’s hairdresser? 

There are options for almost everything and yet searching on line it can be like finding a needle in a haystack. The only upside being that us guys get our hair done every few weeks, but unless you are ready for a constant repair & fix you may never have the hair you deserve.


If your looking for a salon that knows what they are doing and has the trained team to deliver then congrats you found us. We don’t do a little this and that, we specialise in hair!

Phone 📱 011-41010011

Hey little man it’s my hair! 

Well can’t really say we are impartial when it comes to hair, we like different because well that’s what we do, we have seen all kinds of hair and a lot looks the same after some point. What does excite us is when someone is so sure of who they are that no matter what someone will say they will do whatever they want.


It’s true some guys like to push there opinion on some woman and tell them what they like, as if it’s there right or something not sure. We say it’s your body do whatever makes you happy, if you want green hair then it’s green hair you must have, you want it short then cut it short.

Life is far too short to be trying to keep everyone else happy when at the end of the day the only person that really matters is you, if you make you happy you can make others happy but you have to be happy first.

10 times when getting it cheap is not the best idea 

First of all we focus on cutting hair, not coupons and we spend all of our free time training on becoming better at what we do. It’s no secret that we all like a bargain in fact for some it’s a sport, a way of life. For some things you can afford to be frugal and some things you just can not.


Now we are not saying be stupid or careless with your money because that would be silly, we are saying there is a time and place for everything.

For example if your buying a certain product, same brand & model then you can call around and get various prices but if your buying a service or skill you can not compare prices ever!

Let’s take a mens haircut which you could possible get for 30-40rp underneath the local tree 🌲 now you can spend this or if you had some extra cash you could end up spending 5-6,000rp with the difference being the end result, the finish, the ambience and the overall experience. Now if you’re buying Parle G biscuits and you buy them under a tree for 10rp or from a shop at 40rp then this makes no difference ( as long as storage and use by date is in order ) so this is a time you can bargain until you’re happy.

A service based product varies so much from place to place and by service we don’t mean just simply a nice looking place, it’s about having the right skills set to be able to deliver the promised service. So this can hardly be a sit at home on the phone calling around to get the cheapest price before booking yourself in. If this is your way of looking for the place to go It is not the smartest way to find quality at all.

Times you should not bargain

  • Doctor
  • Dentist
  • Plastic surgeon
  • Hairstylist 
  • Crematorium 
  • Buying medicine
  • Buying petrol
  • Defense attorney 
  • Laser hair removal
  • Tattoo parlour

So if you want the best try searching for the best rather than searching discount and you may be surprised that instead of having to spend twice as much to get something done then you will get it done right the first time, saving you both time and money.

The hair coloring masters

When it comes to coloring your hair it must be a tailor made color not a “pick the number on the box” type service because it’s simply not. Some people will still ask “what number is that” which our standard answer is none of your business 😳


Getting the right color is about knowing what color you have currently, the overtone you want and the undertone you currently have. If you mixed paints at school and could manage hundreds of shades of brown from 2-3 colors then you may just have a basic understanding of color. Doesn’t make you a hairdresser and certainly doesn’t give you the skills to be coloring your hair but you get the basics.

What happens when your travelling can you get a box color then? No you can not this is not going to be a standard color, it’s 100% unique for you so it’s not a box color type solution.

So if you are after color then there is only one salon you choose, the salon that is as brilliant at getting the perfect neon faded pink to the most subtle natural ash brown hair we go this!

We serve blueberry pancakes

Hump day is meant to be the hardest day of the week and once you get past it, it’s meant to get easier right?


I don’t know about you all but honestly I just want to Netflix, chill and pancake my way through this one!

If you’re having a crappy week come spend some time with us, no we don’t have pancakes, no we don’t have Netflix but we do have scissors and that could be fun 😜

Sorry the headline is balls we do have awesome coffee not your instant crap. Awesome hair good music and coffee

A tight fade with a built in partline

Like it or not it’s a trend and maybe for the Typical lazy guy who couldn’t be bothered trying to make sure his hair is looking ok, just shave the edges plus a line and comb the one piece left.


Not a bad idea in the grand scheme of things. If you or your mates are lazy AF let them know about this style it could be for them!! 

How many fingers do you use?

The moment you wake up you’re texting your friends, boss etc you’re on Facebook busy tagging your friends in funny AF memes like no generation has ever before.


It’s a fact that majority use two or 3 fingers only to text and can almost doing without looking. In the early 90’s workplaces around the world went into a frenzy with court cases of repetitive strain injury from a sudden influx of typing and now today typing is not only essential for work it is a form of communication for life.

From ordering food on line, booking a cab, inviting friends over or biking a flight you will surely be typing.

Physiotherapist’s recommended you use a soft round item to squeeze to elevate the muscle tension or build up or lactic acid.

Now you have a purpose to squeeze those bundles of fun

Fresh AF

There is so much going on in all our lives it’s honestly hard to keep up, boo sits down for a coffee date and barely gets eye contact looking at each other’s phones. We want to be connected so 1 hour off line causes some to get anxious. Work demands a 22 hour day as no one gives a toss about what is realistic, we all have an agenda, we all have selfish self serving addictions.

Fig & Maple

Yet no matter what we always make Sundays our day, sure there may be a bit of work thrown in but it’s always about being our day.

What habits are you feeding are they positive or negative?

Why choosing a salon that’s connected and active online is important 

Everyone has their own thoughts with social media or being active on it and why or if it’s even important. We think it’s one of the main key aspects you should all be looking for in your salon because I guess it only makes sense if your after new, fresh and current that that are new fresh and current.  If they are a little slow online we can only imagine what could happen on one of their chairs 🙊

So I guess the thing you need to ask yourself is, the salon you choose is it current or still living in the old school ways?

If you’re after the best in hair then it only makes sense that is by people who are up to date with the current, check out which salon is online and which ones are not then get yourself into the current one.
See you soon 😜

What is your hair saying about you?

It’s not a new theory in fact it’s the same as your wardrobe, dress for success they said but no one made a fuss about your hair. In fact most people neglect to put the same effort into their hair as they do their clothes.


When you are making such an effort to send all the right signals with beautifully fitted clothes, the right colors, the perfect shoes, most up to date look yet by the time you get to your hair it’s almost like you ran out of time & money or at the very least stop bothering to see it through.

When your dressing head to toe remember the stuff on your head! It’s the one thing that you wear daily and can’t quickly change in the washroom of the club. Get hair that suits you, says what you want it to say and that works for you.

Want to go blonde?

Your hair has been as dark as the night since the day you were born and like all things grass is always greener on the other side of the fence and you want to be blonde!


Well you’re right, anything is possible after all Kim Kardashian did it so why not you right?

It can be done but there are a few things you should know before taking the plunge.

  • It is a lengthy process, certainly not a ” lunchbreak” kind of color. Depending on how your hair reacts and what we start with can take 6-8 hours or even 6-8 hours over 2-3 days. Yes it’s a process
  • Maintainence is little you really need to use a toning shampoo and conditioner. This helps maintain the tone as it can go brassy ( yellow/gold ) over the coming weeks.
  • If your hair has been coloured then even if the current result it looks the same from roots to ends bleaching over it can cause a lot of damage.
  • Regrowth, well depending on how dark you are but if your going blonde then even light brown looks black as it’s growing out. Expect a trip to the salon every 2-3 weeks for the regrowth. This won’t be as time consuming but still not a quick trip.

If all that hasn’t put you off then it’s time to go blonde I guess!

A home like Tarzan

Work and personal life has always been a struggle and we read all about balance but it’s about blurring the lines more than balancing we think. If you love what you do then it doesn’t feel like work right?


Now if it doesn’t feel like work and doesn’t look like work,chances are it will be the most positive space to be in ever!

This is how your home/  office should be to produce extra oxygen on turn filling up your space with “brain juice” that inspires and relaxes!

Getting the right hair & beard combination

Having a corporate job, you need to wear a suit but on the weekends you want to look like you’re the drummer in a rock band. The struggle is real!


What you have to remember guys is that one element can be rock n roll whilst the others need to be more refined, this gives you options for a corporate meeting to bashing it out on stage. If you combine this with a suit and tie now you have a very individual looking versatile look that can’t be considered messy or corporate. The shorter hair gives you corporate and yet the beard gives you rock n roll.

The right haircut and the right beard combination with the know how on how to style it and you’re ready to party!

Still looking for the strongest hair in India

Yesterday we were in Bangalore for Pantene & Vogue searching for the strongest hair in the country who will meet Priyanka Chopra.


Well in Bangalore there was a fair share of strong hair for sure but we must give some hints to keep your hair healthy.

  • Regular trims – every 6-8 weeks
  • Always use conditioner after shampoo
  • Don’t overdo chemical treatments.
  • Careful using heat tools

Simple on purpose 

Uncluttered and not overdone has more impact than trying to do a little this and that, at least we believe that.


Many people end up with a miss match of this and that and before you know it, your hair is a dogs breakfast. Remember the one easy fact, the more you do, the more it looks like you have done aka the more it can look forced.

We believe in keeping it simple.

Why your weekly hair spa is a waste of money

So you’ve destroyed your hair by doing every chemical treatment on the planet because, well because you were told it was needed now they tell you “Mam you need a weekly hair spa” then have the nerve to tell you if you buy 5 you get one free. Like oh we ruined it but to fix it we can save you some money 😫


Problem is if your hair is that fried no amount of treatments will bring it back to life. Prevention is the best treatment yet very few value the word NO when it comes to getting what you want. Now sure there are products that can artificially rebuild the structure of your hair to some extent and will most definately help but a hair spa? Nope it’s basically conditioner in a jar labelled “hair spa” which is a superficial product and won’t do anything much after you have walked out of the salon.

Some salons put you under a steamer, telling you it opens the cuticle and helps penetrate. What it does is swell the hair by heating it up causing the cuticle to feel smooth until the swelling goes down. Yep you think wow it feels better but in fact the next day after you wash it, it’s exactly the same.

Healthy hair is hair that has been looked after by proper applications of color, regular trims and good hair care regime. Just because a salon offers a treatment or service doesn’t mean you should do it.

The truth about your new bright color

No matter what you do or who you talk to, there is a common thread that there is a certain level of expectations not being met. Now this ranges from salary, sex life, boyfriend/girlfriend goals to hair color and travel. Can’t really help you with the rest but want you to be aware of the following.


We have social media flooded with images of hair color, some real most photoshopped to the verge of unrealistic with most clients thinking it’s fairly easy, when in fact it’s a 12-16 hour color job but they want to be booked in be finished before lunchtime on a Saturday. We have hairdressers photoshopping colors to enhance them, clients using 3-5 filters to get that wow factor to enhance their feed.

We recently had a client with coloured black hair, wanting to have “just a few white highlights” then once we explained the process and the time involved almost looked like we were lying 🤥 it’s not a color you just slap on and that too on black hair.

Some people want instant and have very little concern for healthy of hair, Maintainence or anything as long as you can get s few good photo’s for your feed. Coloring hair is not as simple as choosing a box in our magical back room and putting it in a bowel, it is based on your hair history, condition, target color and the texture & strength of your hair.

Asking your friend what color they used and doing the same will never work it’s completely different from person to person as every single head of hair is not only different but has been through different things so it has to be treated separately.

If your thinking of a color change and looking for something that’s going to “Pop” come in and discuss it first to see if it’s realistic and what would it involve not only to do but to maintain. After years training we kind of know how to do color and what’s involved in achieving the best.  We love talking hair and will always tell you fairly easily if your expectations are more like a Disney movie than reality.

Diwali parties are next month

The year seriously just vanished already working out Christmas plans and hearing all about Diwali cards parties it’s crazy!


If you take the time to plan this properly your hair will look bang on throughout. If it’s 5 weeks out and you want to look fresh AF then you need it done now then the week of all of your parties once more and you will look perfect!

How to make appointments without downloading our App

Soooooo many companies are making app’s in order to gain attention in the tech space yet don’t get the fundamental downside of anyone actually downloading let alone keeping it on their phone. We all have space issues with reports of some people taking photos on average of 30-70 per day it’s only going to be a few weeks before it’s a choice between Instagram, google maps or the useless app you got from a pizza joint or a hair salon.


We saved you the drama, we don’t have a “App” we have inbox on both Facebook as well as Instagram which you already have and possibly are not going to delete it anytime soon 🤓

We also have a phone which is kind of cool, it’s old school but it works too, choice is yours 😝

What happens when you wrap your hair up 

There is convenient then there is hatful sadly these two are the same thing so unless you want to improve your hair quality stop teasing g this now!

When you hit snooze you had no idea that it would cause your hair to break off or be pulled out, I guess it was more about sleeping for another 3-5 min cos your tired AF


When your hair goes from wet to dry it shrinks, so when you put your hair up and wrap a towel around you are stretching the hair tightly. Your hair dries slowly which make it get tighter, the hair pulls tighter and will snap at the weakest point. On top of all of this it’s been wrapped upside down in the complete opposite direction to how it will sit. No it won’t make it full it’s only putting undue pressure on the hair strands which will cause it to go frizzy, break and be dehydrated.

After the shower, pat dry with a towel and don’t shake it or put it up.

Sun protection for your hair

The sun although without it we would all die can cause damage for your hair and skin if exposed to too much, it can also change the color of your hair turning it the completely wrong shade so you need to make sure your products have UV protection as well as cover up when possible.

Now if your white you want to have some color so you may need to wear a hat the times your out, even if it’s for a short time the excessive heat causes the internal moisture of your hair to evaporate and dry up. If your still hung up using oil as a “natural” remedy for dry hair then keep reading!


Even though you wash out your oil ( which does nothing btw ) small molecules are left behind and over time build up. Oil + Sun heats up the hair drying it out faster and burning the oil onto your hair making it shinny yes, but burnt, damaged, rough and dry! Don’t do it!!!

Using fruit and vegetables the right way 

It’s not uncommon for us to be asked which food we should eat to make your hair grow faster, look healthier, shine etc etc and some so called experts will give you the most random new ” power fruit ” to make you rush off and buy it by the kilo.


The reality behind healthy hair is a balanced diet with the right amount of each food group. Sounds too easy though so it mustn’t be totally accurate there must be something else. Nope it’s really that simple, if your skipping one of the food groups because your a vegetarian then dose up of the loss with other fruits or vegetables 🥒 or nuts from the other groups!

Healthy hair can not be bought it happens when you are conscious about it, visit the salon frequently and don’t do things that endanger your hair health!

You wearing sports shoes doesn’t make you a runner, her wearing a see through top doesn’t make her easy!

I find it odd that some people think if a woman wears something transparent or a little exposing that all of a sudden she is saying she wants sex from you or anyone. That’s as stupid as a fat guy wearing gym gear thinks it’s going to make him ripped or suddenly fit!

You wear Nike running shoes does that mean your a marathon runner? You wear ripped jeans, are you suddenly blessed with a rockstar voice that can make you famous? You wear ripcurl ( a surf brand ) can you surf? You can buy a race car doesn’t mean your suddenly a formula one driver.

The answer is no you can’t do how on this planet does any guy think just because a girl/woman wear something she feels good in has anything related to her willingness to have sex? It is completely stupid!

Guys, please understand if a girl wants to wear clothes that she feels good in, be it sexy or just plain confident it has nothing to do with anything else other than her. It’s not your business, it isn’t saying anything it’s just clothes she likes to wear.

Respect her for her being a person who has a brain, personality and the same choices you do. Don’t be a wanker and judge, it will make you look like the biggest looser on planet earth!

Rod Anker Salons review 

Have you ever thought about reviews and wondered about them being legit? Well if you haven’t then you possibly should because it has been know that a few dodgy things going on, sit back and get ready to laugh your guts out!


So things like some salons writing bad reviews on other salons, writing good ones on there own 😂 yes on Facebook as well as other websites.

The best way to find out about a salon is 100% not the right way unless it’s a review from Vogue, Elle or Cosmo it’s really not worth wasting your time or risking your hair is it?

Reviews have changed just like a lot of things have, it’s the digital age so checking out s restaurant, salon or hotel is now all you need to do is go onto Instagram or Facebook and search hashtags it will make you second guess yourself or possibly satisfy your decision on where to get your hair done.

Getting a bad haircut although we all joke it’s 2 weeks between a good haircut and a bad haircut, the reality is complete opposite.

The worst haircut for Indian Men

One size doesn’t fit all however when it comes to the undercut it seems everyone believes it’s perfect for them when in fact it’s possibly not the most flattering and here is why!

Now let’s just start by saying you were born blessed with more hair on you than a typical football team has in total in the west so well done! 

With your face shape you need to make sure the shape hair your left with does not make your head look bigger than it is or you will be left looking like a cartoon character or like your 5kg fatter than you are. Now genetically Indian men have larger foreheads so the top of your hair needs to be flatter or you will make that area look bigger, the bigger the hair the bigger your forehead will look!


If you make the top flatter, the entire look of your face now becomes thinner and more youthful!

See 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻


Less tired looking and lost weight!

Give it a go and don’t wear and undercut because it probly isn’t for you.
