It’s a fact some guys need need help explaining why some things are important and it’s not a dig, guys are just wired differently. We thought it best to try some pictures to explain it.
If you have shapes and you put them over each other then another shape is created….. wow right lol.
So in short if you have a round face, get yourself a square haircut that doesn’t look round. If you have a chiseled jaw ( rare and most guys will be hating you just fyi ) then you can do whatever you like, if you do square cut then you will look more square.
Long face, avoid height as it will make it look longer! Avoid long beards as this will also lengthen your face, you need width so anything that adds to the look on the sides is the way to go!
For more drop in and have a chat with us, it’s free and we can give you some advice!
Often it’s hard to explain things so we use multiple tool to try to explain what a certain look is. Here is a perfect example of face framing color, slightly more color around the face than the rest of the hair, it opens up the face ( unless you wear it all over your face )
The darker the hair is naturally the less light you would take it, it’s meant to be subtle and not a highly visible effect rather a shift of color that enhances the overall look!
So if you are after a color that you want to go out and show it off then give us a call 01141010011
Ever had someone tell you that they love your shoes? If you have it sure feels good, a validation that that one extra pair to your ever growing collection was worth it, finally getting appreciated for the style guru you are!
Getting told your hair looks amazing is possibly less frequent not because you have ugly hair ( not saying you don’t either 😏) but it’s just a tad more personal I guess so most people will notice but not mention it directly.
It’s when you have complete strangers ask you who does your hair, you know you’re on s winning streak! If it hasn’t happened to you then it’s time to change salons.
It’s no secret that our bodies need water but for some of us we still need reminding. No coffee doesn’t count it’s water, plain water you need to drink.
We look for a diet that suits our need, one that includes our favourite foods, one that doesn’t really restrict us at all or change much of what we are already doing because at the end of the day we are lazy creatures.
So before you start googling diet for healthy hair and keep searching for something that looks like what you already eat, know that you need to capture all 5 food groups to be a healthy human. Once your body is getting what it needs, then everything will function the way it’s meant too!
For some people think you can literally just pay extra to fix hair that’s ruined, abuse it for months/years then simply pay a little extra and you have brand new healthy hair but guess what…. you can’t!
Here are a few things you need to do to make sure your hair doesn’t need shaving off and starting again! Some you will think you can skip because, well that’s human nature and you think you can do what you want but if you want healthy hair here goes!
Trim every 5-6 weeks! Yes you do and no even if you are trying to grow it then ends need to be removed.
Don’t over dry it or end up burning it with heat tools, a blow out shouldn’t destroy your hair if done correctly but sadly a lot of the time it does!
Always use conditioner, closes the cuticle making sure the moisture stays in.
Use a heat protector or serum everyday!
Wash it every day or every second day.
Don’t use oil, yes DON’T -it coats the hair, the heat that’s generated from the coating dehydrates the hair and makes it dry and brittle.
No amount of onion juice, cure, beer or oil rubbed onto your scalp is going to do anything other than create bacteria. Anyone who spends time in a salon getting a blow out may or may not know the smoke coming off the client next door is either her hair burning or bacteria & build up burning off the hairshaft! Just because your mum told you and her mum told her and her mums mum told her doesn’t make it correct.
Now stop doing your home remedies and avoiding getting cut and start looking after your hair!
Your goal was mermaid hair or it could have been just a nice vibrant color either way it’s not going to last unless you look after it!
There are numerous reasons why your color might fade and here they are, they are all important and some colours just won’t last long even though you think you are doing everything right.
Shampoo is super important and if you are using a harsh shampoo then it will strip the color faster than you can get yourself a selfie. Use a Sulfate free shampoo!
Conditioner, yes girl you like it full, good for you but if you don’t close your cuticle then the color which you put inside the hair will wash out because the cuticle ( the outside later which gets closed by using conditioner ) is left open for the color to fade!
If your hair has been abused to the point it’s Brocken chances are no matter what you do the color simply won’t take let alone stay in.
If you are using an anti dandruff shampoo, kiss your color goodbye!
Over exposure to sun, salt water lightens the hair and removes color.
Too much excessive heat ( irons and over drying )
Using oil will cause the cuticle to expand damaging the strength ( sure it may make it look shinny) but will in turn cause the color to escape.
If your ends are split and you constantly don’t want to remove split ends chances are the color on the ends will fade faster than the rest!
Too much prior chemical treatments your cuticle will not have the strength to close and the color will fade.
So if you have taken the time and money to get a color then protect it so it looks good as long as possible.
There are a lot of us that simply don’t have photos of those hair disasters from years ago and thank god for that right!
If you or any of your redneck friends need help please be subtle and get them some help today. No one deserves to be haunted by ugly photos of yesterday. Do something that in ten years time when the next #tenyearchallenge happens you don’t have to hide!
There are several situations that require the need to have clear communication before you start. One is obviously the subtle use of the image below the other is getting your hair done.
Now for a lot of people you know what you want, in fact you may even have 200-300 reference images already saved or it may be it’s in your head and it needs digging out. Well that’s why we believe in having a talk one on one before we do anything.
A good opportunity to find out any problems, dreams, wish list, things you don’t like, Maintainence level your comfortable with and a lot more. It’s more than rubbing your head and asking if you want a trim.
So if you haven’t experienced a professional salon that you get asked more question than Donald Trump will get when everyone finally boots him out of office! Then it’s about time you called us!
Now before you all stand up and say anything let’s be honest and understand that anything you do is not going to be an overnight thing!
You can make it appear thicker, you can have it cut so it sits fuller, you can use product to give you volume, you can have a good balanced diet and healthy lifestyle to encourage the best growth possible. You can’t take a pill and somehow grow thicker hair, sorry not sorry.
The right cut can add volume and help with the appearance to make it look like you have more hair as well as a few tricks on styling can help dramatically. Having shorter layers whilst you may think it’s the way to get more fullness on the top and your so called ” bounce” it also takes hair away from the lower parts making it look thinner or hacked when you put it in a pony tail.
In 2018 we saw a move towards more natural hair that is more low Maintainence and easier to grow out and we feel this trend will continue in 2019 because we all know how we try to fill every day to the max and really don’t have time for high Maintainence hair!
The good thing about this style is can be worn shorter and given that is heavily textured you can easily wear it messy yet has the ease to be styled a little more controlled depending on the situation.
Best styled using a matte paste on dry hair and needs trimming every 4 weeks.
A lot of people grow up being told what to do, what job to get, what type of partner they should have and what type of life they should expect. The reality is you can have whatever you like and the only person who has control is you. We listen to society, advertising and social media and base happiness on what we see when in fact happiness doesn’t have to look like anything.
If you have to constantly listen to others telling you who you are, then it’s only your fault if you believe them. No one should hold over your head the idea of what or who you are, be yourself and do whatever you want. Obviously don’t hurt others and follow your heart but at the end of the day when you find something or someone you love, life will make sense and it won’t be hard work as well as life will start making a lot of sense!

Hair is not like a crush that’s moving overseas or a bff that’s heading off to college, you have to plan change a little bit or suffer to consequences!
