Getting all the facts before choosing a color is super important, you might choose something today that will affect your choices later and once it’s done it can’t be undone!
We see a lot of times when someone is starting to go grey they will want to cover the grey and still look natural, the natural color may be dark brown and away you go, problem solved. Fast forward a year and as times moves on you have more grey, you notice it growing out super fast now what was something you had to do every 10-12 weeks you have to do every 4 weeks.
Or in the cases that people want to be lighter and end up having highlights and after 1 or two times end up having to do it every 4-6 weeks.
There is a better way to have hair color and still be low Maintainence and not be spending half of the national budget on it!
Here we go! As we get older our hair gets slightly lighter, we get grey ( or in fact it’s white ) and it happens to almost everyone. When we start colouring our hair, the goal is it to look natural and not fake, but if you keep doing the same color year after year eventually it will be too dark, the contrast between what is growing out will be so stark you will see it in s matter of days! Solution is to gradually cover it less and slightly lighter over time so you don’t get such a solid regrowth it’s that simple. Saves money, time and the overall look is softer and more natural.
When you want to go lighter but not see dark roots! Well introducing balayage, it’s not done at the roots it’s a faded color typically lighter on ends that has no demarcation mark and is only needed to be done every 3 months or longer! Whilst highlights can be still the right choice and you may love the look there are various ways to still do highlights and not end up looking fake or in need of a trip to the salon just ask us how!
No it’s not 100,000 to get your hair cut so chill.
So since we posted about which salon is the best and how to search a few of you thought we should clarify so here we go and hope it clarifies things for you.
Google is one way to find the things you want, sadly or in reality we all know that just because it is the first to come up doesn’t mean it’s the best. In fact it usually takes a bit of word play to find what you are after if you are a master of google! The best way to find your ideal salon maybe asking friends where they go ( obviously ask friends that have similar taste as you and similar quality expectations ) there are groups on Facebook and what’s app, try asking there.
Now while most are happy to give anything a try, as the saying goes “its only 2 weeks between a good and bad haircut” if you think this is true, haven’t had a bad haircut.
Now while we could write about our awesome technical abilities or our unique cutting method, it kind of means squat if we don’t get each other!
Go to the salon you have shortlisted, talk to them and see if you “click” once you have done that with all the salons it’s then you decide who to trust with your hair!
Well you can google it and most likely you will get the names of places that have paid to appear, not always but typically. So if it’s only another way to advertise and that’s not sad that’s just the way the internet works.
Since the begging of life we have shared things amoungst people that could be friends and at times strangers but when someone has direct experience it’s more trustworthy than a paid one liner!
No we don’t pay to appear anywhere, it’s not who we are or what we do, we create fans or happy campers that are our advertising. The better their hair looks and the better they can manage it the better our advertising works.
So before you start searching for the best, look around you and see what’s right there! It’s not always that far away
Its annoying when you have a job that you have to look a certain way, lets be honest a lot of us like to literally roll out of bed and put shoes on and away we go for the day. I guess its a good thing that a lot of businesses have some kind of “dress code” or the world could look a little ugly!
Given that times are changing and the thought of not putting effort in simply doesn’t make sense, we want to look good because then we feel good about ourselves! Its not about getting the latest this or that, its about making sure we look good with what we have. Hair is a huge part of the overall look and even if you have a limited amount, its what you do with what you have that will make the difference.
So before you dismiss getting a cool haircut maybe its time to have a chat with us and see how you can style it a few ways, that way you can have one look for work and another one for when you go out!
It may take a little practice but we can help you get it right, may be just a small change or with a little effort and product we can take it up a notch!
We have all seen those kids that have brown hair and blonde ends, like they have been On a beach holiday for a month of carefree chill.
When we are kids we think it’s better if we are older and when we are older we know it was kind of easier being a kid, go figure! I guess we are always thinking grass is greener on the other side of the fence.
Balayage is taking this feeling and turning it into a color, a feeling and a mood. It’s carefree, low Maintainence and on trend right now!
So if you want to feel like a kid again, look natural and have a fresh low Maintainence color then maybe it’s time for you to see what everyone is so in love with this look!
We have been thinking a lot lately on why people get things done, why we spend money, why we chase things and people even if it’s not right for us.
A lot of the time it’s boredom, sometimes it’s just plain stupid and we like being stupid and other times it’s through lack of knowing what you should chase and what you shouldn’t.
With so much information around us it’s hard to filter what’s real and what’s false, Instagram has us all feeling like a failure because for the majority of us we don’t fly around the world in a private plane and have close dinners with A list celebrities every few days. We are not wearing the latest drop from the coolest labels and your saved list of things you want is longer than your prescription from the last time you went to the dermatologist!
Whilst you may have heard the most expensive haircut in India is from us, but the reality is we often say no to things that don’t make sense for you to do. Crazy we know but because we like to be as honest as possible if it’s not the right thing to do or your expectations and reality are lightyears apart we tend to play things safe so you know what you are in for. I guess because hair is such a personal thing it’s easy to get emotional about and make poor decisions it but at the end it can make you feel unstoppable and just plain awesome if your hair works, so we take it very seriously!
You get honest, because we like to sleep at night knowing we speak the truth.
You get facts versus fiction because it’s easy to be real than put on a constant show.
You get options, if you have a budget ( like 99% of people on the planet do) we go through the cost clearly breaking it down so there is no surprises.
If that sounds too easy to be true then it’s about time you dropped in and let us do what we do!
Easy answer, you can’t! Oops sorry does that mean you are already going to give up on reading this just like you have given up on everything else?
If starting over was as easy as deleting your Instagram account I guess most would have done it several times already but you can’t! Changing your habits and attitude is often easier said than done, it takes real-time commitment and determination and often a co at any battle with your mind!
Poor choice of your inner circle and a job you are unmotivated about and before you know it, everything takes effort and not a lot looks positive. The reality is far from it tho, we are all only a few choices away from a different life ( not better or worse just different ). We see a lot of people trying to reset the life button by getting drastic changes with hair and it can be incredibly liberating and refreshing.
“If you do what you have always done, you will get what you already have”
So in short nothing changes, then nothing changes. The captain or CEO of your life is you, you decide what you do, how well you do it, the determination you have daily and persistent to your goals that will decide where you reach. Too many use excuses to justify where they are as a way to make themselves feel better about being lazy or not being able to stay motivated. It’s super easy to have an incredible goal for your life but if you are not doing anything to reach it daily then what are you doing?
Make small commitments to yourself, could be working out at 7am or working on perfecting a talent or skill but make it and ensure you are working everyday to reach a better version of you. Doing it one or two days then getting bored with it because nothing changed immediately is not being determined, it’s lazy and unrealistic!
A brand like Mc Donald’s took almost 10 years to open its first restaurant outside America in 1967 to today opening a new restaurant on average every 3 hours globally!
If you need a kick start come see us and let’s change your hair and give you a new lease on life! Don’t wait or waste time watching your phone, nothing is happening there!
Grass is always greener or the hair is always ideal when it’s the opposite to what you already have right?
For those of you who have dark hair and always dreamed of having it white platinum blonde or ash grey, it can be done!
While anything is possible it all depends on your hair and the condition of it. There is no miracle color that can in one application get you white, it’s a process! The darker your hair the more gold pigment it has so it’s a process that requires patience and will irritate the scalp that’s just reality.
If your hair is healthy enough to be able to take the process then it’s possible, the process varies from person to person based on hair texture, density, current color, and condition so needs to be seen to give you an exact quote and can vary once we start depending on your hair.
Good to note that the lighter you go, the faster you see your natural hair grow out, the Maintainence is fairly simple but can involve using a toning shampoo and conditioner to maintain the perfect ash tone and keep the warmer tones from returning.
If you are interested in going white, platinum or ash blonde then drop in and have a chat to us, talk is free
