Gender neutral cuts

It’s 2018, we have boys dressing as girls and girls dressing as boys ( or at least your perception of what certain genders are meant to wear) We have a guy in power in America  who is possibly the most racist person this generation has ever seen! Let’s all stop judging and trying to label things that 10-20 years ago was nothing other than someone wants to wear there hair a certain way.


Who said short hair is for guys and long hair is for girls! We have seen short hair on girls look hot and long hair on guys look completely meant to be. It’s not about putting it into a box and calling it any gender it’s hair, you don’t have to put things in Boxes.

Wear your hair how you want, please only yourself, it doesn’t define who you are, it makes you feel good about yourself and that is all that matters!

5 things we want you to stop

Hairdressers, typically get an insight into the life of the people sitting in the chair more than family and at times closer than husbands and wives. We listen, we talk and we connect, it’s a relationship that is hard to define at times. 


But make no mistake there are some things that make us want to pick you up and shake you until you stop doing them ( obviously the personal habbits aside ). 

The 5 things we want you to stop now! 

  1. Don’t make appointments and be so late then expect us to drop everything because your finally ready. Respect everyone’s time, 10 min is a lot when your appointment may be only 30min
  2. Bring in references we love them but don’t expect miracles in one sitting, at times it takes time for a transition.  
  3. Come in and talk with us about hair, ask loads of questions it honestly makes us happy. Come in and get a DIY on how to do it yourself and I assure you not only will your hair will regret it but you will when it costs you twice as much to fix it. 
  4. Don’t skip appointments your hair needs trimming every 6-8 weeks regardless of how long it is or how long you want to grow it. 
  5. Stop overdoing things and then expecting the best out of your hair, too much color, too many changes of color, too much heat styling and the list goes on. 

No this doesn’t mean we don’t love you it just means we have to be on the same page if it’s going to be a long term love that’s all. 

Your hair at 50%

So your friend started telling you a story, it was a great story and halfway they stopped dead and didn’t finish it. 


Getting our point yet?

We are a hair salon, we spend our time and energy on education and developing skills set both technically as well as personality not on creating complicated deals or packages to get you to spend money you don’t need too! 

Hairdressing is an art and not about doing a course then sitting back and saying you know it all because it simply doesn’t work that way. 

Come see for yourself what we do and how we do it?

How to stay in bed another 30 min every day

This generation seem to sleep less and are more in touch with everything everywhere, but when it comes to getting out of bed we all need or maybe want an extra 20-30 min extra if we are honest!

So how to do it?

Well it sounds so basic you may want to skip to end but it’s really simple. 

Hair grows in certain ways on various parts of your hair, it falls in a certain direction, creating bumps, waves and weight in a way that is unique to you and your hair! No two heads are the same!

We cut hair both wet and dry, not just the act of  washing it or not washing it but it is the way we can predict the movement long after you have left the salon and are home alone on a Saturday night trying to get ready. 

Now before you go book yourself into your local salon please understand this, just cutting your hair dry will never ever ever be the same. It is a science of hair movement that we train on and takes years to understand as well as having the correct tools. 

If the hair is cut correctly there is no need for constant blow outs, unless your planning a more formal look or just want to treat yourself. 

So now you don’t have to worry about your hair as much in the mornings and you can sleep in a little. 

Your shower is causing your hair fall

It’s a shower, you clean yourself and let’s be honest you should be doing it everyday if not twice if you’re a little obsessive. 


If you like a lot of people you have a little of this, a little of that, a jar practically the only thing left is the fragarance and you can’t bring yourself to throw it out. 

Clean up your bathroom!

Go get all the bottles now and start by putting in the bin the ones you have actually finished, the ones that are almost empty put in the bin! Before you buy anything else this all needs to be used up or given away. The shampoo and co dictionary your using now is not the same as it was 2 years ago. 

Once your done and finished with all these bottles or found a home for them, then it’s time to get into the salon and plan your hair care regime with intention. But until you make the effort in the bathroom nothing will follow suit. 

Gender neutral cuts

It’s 2017, we have boys dressing as girls and girls dressing as boys ( or at least your perception of what certain genders are meant to wear) We have a guy in power in America  who is possibly the most racist person this generation has ever seen! Let’s all stop judging and trying to label things that 10-20 years ago was nothing other than someone wants to wear there hair a certain way. 


Who said short hair is for guys and long hair is for girls! We have seen short hair on girls look hot and long hair on guys look completely meant to be. It’s not about putting it into a box and calling it any gender it’s hair, you don’t have to put things in Boxes.

Wear your hair how you want, please only yourself, it doesn’t define who you are, it makes you feel good about yourself and that is all that matters!

When your color is steel grey and bang on! 

So second time around veteran of color Awoka went steel grey and it’s looking awesome!


It’s become a color high in demand so we wanted to share a few things with you so you can make the right decision if this is for you or just a phase. Although nothing is permanent, it grows out and if you wait long enough you may just end up totally grey anyway right so what’s stopping you!
What’s involved and can I do it myself at home?

That’s kind of like asking a chef give me the recipe I want to make this at home right?! Even if we gave you a step by step it’s hardly something that years of training would could match up too that’s why it’s always a better result to get it done professionally. 

Firstly it needs to be lightened to the most pale white blonde and depending on the exact shade of the result toned to give the final result. Now blonde colors are endless, rose blonde, Sandy blonde, ash blonde, Snow White, ash blonde, dirty blonde and the lost could go on and on hence it is completely subjective. 

If your thinking about going dramatic we suggest seeking professional advice, whilst it’s not cheap, to get even close to what your heart wants requires patience and skill, often several applications of color and change of plans depending on the results in real time. 

How do you keep it this time?

Now here is the interesting part considering the water quality varies in every part of the world the tone can fade fairly fast so you need to take proper care. Use a sulfate free shampoo, always condition. A toning shampoo ( purple which counteracts the gold or yellow pigments ) can be used every second day to keep it perfect. Get the right advice and always get the hairstylist to show your there work before you take the plunge!

Products we use and recommend are Alfa Parf Milano! 

When your shoe collection is on fleek but your hair is outdated!

Recently someone we know was asked about his collection of runners, now in fairness this is not even 10% of his apparently in excess of 100 pairs ( all in perfect condition ) runners!


Proudly flaunting them, it’s his jam, maybe Jim jams but either way he loves them and happy for him. A little fitness on fleek obsessed but we love him so it’s ok. 

However, are you focusing on your footwear too much?

We all know someone that has an obsession and neglects other areas of there look, it’s about balance. 

You have a friend that has the coolest collection of shoes but the worst hair known to mankind?

Hey if this is you and your happy that’s perfectly fine, if your happy and your hair looks a little dodgy then give us a call. 

Was Bobby pinned correctly?

Too often we see Bobby pins being randomly left visible in a hair up when in fact unless it’s a statement or done in a way that is the style it looks plain cheap and ugly. 

Mistakes happen and if it’s a casual thing then the odd visible pin is perfectly fine, but if it’s meant to be a formal look then you really shouldn’t be seeing slip ups!

Fashion week hair

Fashion week in India is upon us and we wanted to share what’s happening in terms of hair globally as it can completely change the look as well as a collection. 


Imagine a nice clean collection, clubbed together with heavily dressed hair that’s intricate and colorful, there is no connect right?

It has to have a synergy with your clothes and overall look, it’s never a last minute thing, it’s well planned and is part of the overall look

Rodarte

Etro

Maison Margiela

If your outfit is heavily constructed it doesn’t always mean your hair has to be the same, at times when the clothes are so intricately constructed the hair HAS to be simplified or you could end up looking like your heading to a fancy dress party. 

If your planning on being there, give us a call we are only a short drive from the venue and you can get your hair on point and be back at the show in no time.
