Choosing a salon is like “trick or treat”

When deciding where to get your hair done, there is so much noise about who is the best, who has a “deal” bla bla bla it’s hard to know who to trust and is almost like heading out trick or treating on Halloween 🎃

So we decided to come back home and skip it, luckily for us we had some chocolate in the fridge!

Don’t be a Joker and get in and see us before doing anything.

Why Delhi girls…WHY

It’s not  just us, it’s a saying and let’s be honest there has to be a reason and we are here to explain it in the easiest way we know how so listen up!


Actually it’s more like gold, not the expensive one more like the imitation one. When your hair is dark it has the most red ( warm ) pigment, more than light brown hair. When you think about the color off your dreams is it yellow or gold? I doubt it, no one intentionally wants to look that bad 🙊

The reason

The problem is when your color is being done, it has been not lightened enough, the gold pigment needs to be removed in this process or no matter what you do it will show it’s ugly head if not immediately or in a week or so.

Now the second biggest issue is how the end result is finished off, if it’s toned again with a light color ( because the hairstylist just realised it wasn’t light enough and trying to fix it the wrong way)

Without getting into the technicalities of hair coloring understand a toner the way a lot of salons do then are a permanent color so by putting it on your entire head with lighten it all up making the hair that wants coloured gold and yellow.

Now this is not the only reason but considering the amount of people we see it’s the cause in 95% of the cases.

Don’t risk it and only trust a professional salon.  There is a reason we are named the best colorists in India

How to get the perfect hand job

Recent Studies revealed that if


Ok your dirty little monkey, glad you opened this because it’s nothing to do with what you thought it did!

Many hands make light work, or it’s not my job! Well you have to imagine what type of world we would live in if we didn’t wait for the person who was meant to do xyz and of capable we did it ourselves?! Wow how incredibly out of the box is that concept, not really actually. Try it at work today and pick up after yourself, do something that is not your job to do.

You have been listening to the wrong people

So recently we were told about several people that promoted DIY hair, no they were not hairdressers, actually nothing to do with hair, you know those people who are blessed at knowing everything.


How to do this or that and almost like an authority you almost think omg it must work, beautiful photos of fruit and veggies 🌶 you kinda get sucked in. Let’s face it we have all googled to find a cheap cure for something at some stage 😳.

Well when it’s hair and you’re on a budget best thing is to go too a professional salon tell them what your wanting and give them a budget, see what can be done, maybe nothing or maybe just maybe you will get close to your dream Hair the right way.  Maybe getting it done right the first time will save you money and time also.

Does a beard suit you? 

Call us crazy but just because you want it, doesn’t meant you should get it. You all want things for whatever reason and yet when someone says no, you look like a spoiler brat, well sometimes it’s for your own good!


Not everyone should be bearded, not everyone looks badass, it’s called reality.

Come see us we like nothing more than to dish out reality. 🤓

Home remedies for your hair to make it grow faster overnight!

Your grandmother sure knows how to make awesome food right, she told you things that all came true yet daily your eating carrots 🥕 and you still can see in the dark, you eat all the crusts and no curly hair ( other than the short ones ). So why did she lie?


Well not saying she was a liar 🤥 but am guessing she didn’t know any better, life as not the same as it is today, pollution wasn’t what it is and our lives were completely different. Whilst coloring and blow drying wasn’t even a thing you can only imagine what condition hair was in, maybe mashing up the contents of your fridge actually made you feel better who knows!

Well home remedies don’t work, rubbing food on your head or scalp is in fact possibly the fastest way to get a bacterial infection.

Always trust a professional salon and let your grandmother  keep telling you stories but know they are not cures more of a feel good kinda in a strange way.

Concealer won’t hide your BS

We all have one of those friends or seen a commercial that claims if you use a certain product or use their product your life will be complete. We are the best, this product is unique etc etc 💤


Or your friend has verbal diarrhoea that clearly doesn’t remember the stories they told you 3 min back that contradicts the current story.

Well we don’t tell you 💩 in fact we have been told we are too honest, we spend a lot of time writing this nonsense to make sure you get it. No your life won’t be complete if you come to us, you will have better hair for sure, may or may not be able to fix a total mess but we will give you a plan too!

What to wear if you’re planning on playing strip poker this Diwali?

Prior preperation prevents poor performance as they say so let’s make sure since Diwali is a celebration in India that there is a lot of card parties, you are a little prepared. Not saying there will be strip poker but hey, stranger things have happened. Wouldn’t you be happier that you wore a few more layers? Yes I guess you would so keep reading or be the first one sitting in the buff.


Now since fashion week has just finished apparently layers are in ( yes thank God, since gym was obviously not high on my priority) so add a jacket or an extra shirt or 4. Unless of course you want to get naked and show off your assets then in that case just make sure you trim and have your love nest in order for the public viewing.

Whatever your doing have fun!

You want her to treat you like Jon Snow

You water your plants right? Well at least we hope you do!


Just like a bonsai your beard needs to be manipulated into the right shape, wait what you thought you just don’t shave it and boom 💥

No idiot! It needs to be looked after, just like your girl if you want her to stay after watching all seasons of Game of Thrones, you need to put in effort!

You have been doing beach waves wrong

If you have heard of beach waves chances are you asked for them at one stage or another and possibly the look was I point. As the name suggests your hair changes in texture when around the ocean sea air, the salt content adds texture and encourages hair to move and hence the loose wave effect.


Don’t be fooled, it’s not curl it’s a loose slightly random wave.

The entire idea of this look is that it’s not super neat, if you get it done and brush it out….. it’s not beach waves.

If you haven’t tried it yet then it’s about time you came to the salon that do it daily, we know how it’s done and are experts at it.

Be self sufficient it apparently is attractive!

Apparently the girls just told us that picking up after yourself, being able to cook, clean and even iron your own shirt is a big turn on!


Who would have thought right?

Well apparently most girls find it not only attractive but an essential trait of a guy, so before you ask someone to do the basics stop being lazy and do it yourself. Best bet is to wait and do it when the girls are watching or be like this dude and get a cool photo while your doing it that way everyone knows how “self sufficient “ you are 😜

Ok jokes aside, being able to manage yourself, not only your day to day living but your look, your hair is in fact a sign of a guy who has his shit together so get yourself into the salon, talk to us about your hair, how to manage it and get your Maintainence set so your constantly looking good

Your hair is a reflection of your diet

It’s often thought that it needs to be complicated to be believed, could it be as simple as diet and sleep? You think things should be complicated and there are secrets only a specialist knows I guess. Well there are some but the basic foundation of healthy hair and healthy growth is diet.


Like a lot of things, the better quality goes in the better quality comes out, it’s not that hard to understand. If you’re living on junk food and lack 8 hours sleep a day don’t think going to a salon or doctor for any new treatment is going to do anything. It’s not.

You are what you eat!

What are you packing?

Blokes are typically a little lazy when it comes to packing before Travelling so we thought it best to go through the essentials for the trip!

Firstly depending on how long your trip is for as to if you need to drop into the salon and get a clean up, keeping in mind there is nothing more unattractive than a bushy neck ( well there is but that’s one 😜)

Now you need to take the following.

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • A dry paste
  • Beard oil
  • Comb or brush
  • Shaving foam and a new clean razor!
  • Facial cleanser
  • A good moisturiser

Now if you’re in the same room your bag will be looked at, trust me she will be going through it and judging you based on what your taking as well as which brand it is!

Something isn’t adding up

You can be searching on Tinder or looking for a hair salon chances are one or both have oversold themselves. Could be the Brad Pitt profile picture that gave it away or the fact that the headline said “ Best Deals”


Then when you’re sitting in a dodgy bar ordering watered down local wine wondering how you got there or walking out of the salon with Hair more fried than a KFC family pack. It’s only when things go wrong we all can look back and say you must have been stupid to believe it in the first place.

Do your research, check on line, check off line and understand if it’s too good to be true, chances are it’s not real.

Sorry you said Top Knots on guys is what?

There are some who no matter what they hear will simply ignore the rules, in one ear out the other.


Whilst the majority will tell you top knots on guys is so not cool, some continue to walk the line with a lot of confidence. We say do whatever you like, we told you and you ignored us so 🤘🏻 to you and your medieval bun.

When your hair is your outfit

Wear it with pride they said, long hair is sexy they said, short hair is not feminine they said.


What rubbish, they also didn’t tell you if you’re sitting on the potty your hair will end up falling in it, or when you do a hair flip it will possible suffocate the person behind you in the que did they.

Long hair can be sexy, short hair can be sexy it all depends on how you wear it and with your wearing it with the right attitude. You don’t have to fit in to look beautiful or sexy it’s an attitude and the way you carry yourself.

Looking for something fresh to do with your hair this season?

Fashion week is here again and the weathe is starting to cool down, all signs that you need to change things up a bit and get yourself a new look!


If your one of those self obsessed people that love wearing labels it’s time you started thinking about your hair! There is nothing more last season than Hair that is the same month after month, year after year.

Can be some small changes every 8 weeks eventually evolving into a new look but it should change.

If your stuck with what to do then come see us and discuss what options you have.

Why you need to choose the right Salon

Let’s be honest, life is about managing expectations from the moment you can remember what you think should happen and what actually happened is usually very different. Just think, a night out recently did it go the way you intended? Does your partner show you the same attention or affection? You go to the gym for a few months and expect to be ready for a marathon? It’s all relevant.


Now heading to the salon is not so different, you may be going because you look like a drowned rat, the color may need freshening up or you may be just a little flat and need a pick me up.  Whatever the reason it’s important that the hairdresser you go to can understand what it is you need. Will you know? Possibly not and that’s why a well trained hairstylist is part hairstylist and part therapist.

I think it’s important to know that it’s normal to have expectations and whilst some are achievable done are so far fetched as those luxury Instagram Travel posts.
Visit us and let us burst your bubble but let you leave with hot hair you love!

Don’t bite off the hand that feeds you

Too many times we get a good thing and we don’t appreciate it, or do when it’s too late, after it’s gone!


We push it, want more, expect more and take for granted that thing will always be there. Well guess what it won’t be! Could be you forget who picks up after you until they stop doing it, your loved one who stops kissing you goodbye or your husband who never says thanks. The list is endless! Appreciate people, situations, diversity and opinion you only get one life!

If you’re wondering how this relates to hair, we get a lot of people who do every chemical treatment known to mankind done, wait till their hair is past repair then expect somewhat a miracle. Yes we are here and at times the last line of defence but you have to ask yourself, do you really need that service? Is it really worth the damage it may do? Do the pro’s outweigh the con’s and if they do they by all means go ahead. Your hair is made up of dead keratin and once the damage is done and you have crossed the line, there is not a lot that can be done other than cutting off the most damaged hair. Sure you want to keep it long possibly but if it looks like a wet rag, taking some off is the only option.

We may just well be the only hair salon in India that will not do something if it isn’t in your hair’s best interest no matter how much money you have or how many ways you ask, if it’s going to ruin your hair then then answer is no!

How to go light and still have beautiful healthy hair

Image via @refinery29

 

How can you lighten your hair ethically and keep the condition in check is a question most people struggle with the answer. The reality is if you are prepared to be patient then it’s possible but if you want to step out of work on a Friday night at 5 with black hair and walk back in Monday a soft beachy blonde then you are dillusional.

Now no matter what you have been told about additives that help maintain the integrity of the hair, there is still limitations you can not buy yourself out of. Hair is non descriminational nor does it care, the structure and it’s strength are the only thing that will get you blonde and keep the tone nothing else.

If you have been colouring it black since you saw your first grey hair and woke up and realised it looks fake ( about time ) then the transition from black to blonde will take you some time. By ” some time ” we are not meaning between 1-3pm on the Saturday after you wake up. It requires several sittings over several days or weeks depending on the way your hair reacts. 

The reality is whatever has gone on your hair will effect the process and the result and no amount of wishing will change it. We get asked if heat can be added because some salons add heat to speed it up.

When you add heat like this, it may speed it up however it swells the hair shaft and causes more damage as well as a result effected by the swelling of the hair, which in the days after the color will change. 

We suggest a in depth consultation about your desired goal and reality in result as well as timing . Once we have discussed possible results and we are all happy, then we proceed.

What’s the right shape for your beard

Getting the right shape beard is the key to loving your man scape and if you get it wrong it can add weight and make you look a little odd.

Rule of thumb is if you have a round face you can square it off with the shape of the beard, square face you need to soften it a little and round off the edges.
So before you take it for granted and just grown it without thought or care, thinking your a lumberjack.

Your beard is you manliness look after it and remember you beard oil.

Your Instagram is cool but you’re as basic as a Parle G biscuit

We are at an stage we’re more effort is put into having the coolest images on line and yet no effort into being cool or yourself. Brands some one thing yet they do another, people say they do this or that but in reality they only do that to get a Photo.


The craziest thing is that your personality and what you are putting out doesn’t match in fact not even close, it’s a complete miss match and everyone can see it. Let’s say you’re pro cutting edge and want everyone to think you push the boundaries yet in real life you’re a conformist. Doesn’t work and there is something odd and we can all see it.

No this isn’t about one person or one brand this epidemic effects a LOT and you have to assume it stems out of insecurity which is sad. We spend all our life trying to fit in yet we spend as much energy talking ourselves up saying we aren’t like the rest 😳

In an age of social media being the way it is, we have to spend more time reflecting the real you rather than trying to show one thing and acting another.

It’s really boring and disappointing to meet someone who seems cool but is as basic as a Parle J biscuit

How to get the perfect grey hair color!

For guys it’s a very common request, George Clooney’s grey hair and from the ladies it’s either just remove the black color I want to go natural or I want ash grey hair. So what the hell is the right info and what do you need to do?

We sat Rod down handed him a coffee and asked him.

This is what he told us

For guys the reality is if you want the color like George Clooney you have to wait, pray and see if it happens naturally coloring it like this won’t happen ever! You can get an overall grey but will be every strand of hair the same color not a natural effect.

For the girls, firstly you can not use a special product and remove the coloured hair from your head, leaving it natural again once it’s coloured it’s coloured. Only solution is bleaching it however that doesn’t make it natural it only makes it all bleached and besides that may not get the desired level if it’s got multiple layers of color.

Want coloured ash grey hair? This can be done but takes time & money to do it right and maintain it. If your hair has color in it, you will struggle to remove it and you may end up with a brassy result that needs more work to remove but possible.
