When two fingers is better than one!

You make the trip every month and walk out thinking wow if only I could do it the same, but you can! Some salons believe it or not consider it part of the service to make sure you can re created it yourself once you get home. In fact isn’t that why we go to a salon anyway?

Product & technique are the two things you need to be shown, it’s one thing to have the product sitting in your bathroom it’s another to know how and when to use it!


Doesn’t matter if it’s the shampoo or conditioner to a leave in serum, if used incorrectly could mean it doesn’t work or gives you the completely wrong result.

So next time you visit a salon, make sure you are told or ask all the right questions!

  • When should I apply it
  • How much should I use
  • How to apply it
  • Where to apply it first
  • Can I use it daily

That way your not buying products just to fill your bathroom like you are a warehouse for Amazon.

Now when it comes to styling you need to know this also because no amount of product info is going to get you those beach waves just by applying a product!

  • What products, where, when, how much etc
  • Dry it how? Upside down? Shake it? Cool air? On high?
  • What does the cold button do?
  • What size brush?
  • Irons or curling wand?
  • Concave or straight?
  • What temperature?
  • What brand?
  • How big sections?
  • Which way to wind it?

So many questions right! Now wonder why we give you stink eye when you spend the 45 min on your phone while sitting in the chair and we see you three days later looking like a street busker.

How to do beach waves

Gone are the days of overly curly hair or “in & out” curls it’s now all about soft movement that looks natural. After all hair should move and look effortless and not uptight and stiff! 


Firstly you need good tools we use Alan Truman curling rod typically the 32′ as most people like loose and honestly it’s our preferred look also. 

We dry the hair with a light spray of Sea Salt spray by Label M and faving downwards to make sure we don’t create a birds nest or frizz. 

Once the hair is dry we take 2 inch square sections starting from the nape and roll alternate directions leaving out the ends ( 1 inch ) continuing all the way to top. 

From your eyebrows up we wind back to help move the hair away from your face. 

Once complete gently break the waves up, light spray or serum and your done! It’s really that simple. 

Keep your curling Rod set to 190 no hotter as your after bend not curl! 

Sorry this is not working, let’s break up

You only say goodbye to something when it’s not working and no matter how much fun, love or good times if you can’t fix it then it’s time to say ” see ya wouldn’t want to be ya”


Could be your hairdresser who still tells you to make your hair poker straight or it could be those straightening irons you got in 2005 that were state of the art with the best technology then but it’s years later and the technology is so much better. 

Every now and then it’s a good idea to pull them out, dust them off and check the condition of them & clean them. Too much of anything can be bad so don’t use them more than twice a week and always use a heat protector when using.  The irons and electrical equipment we use and recommend is Alan Truman

Maybe it’s time to say goodbye

So you think you can danceĀ 

So this guy can’t sing let’s just get that straight and this is not a photo of him dancing ( no one wants to see that we assure you )!


We do a lot of training for the industry here throughout India, with people who want to learn, who are passionate about growth. Earlier this week Rod was in Bangalore with “Alan Truman” brand showcasing various new irons and equipment which we use and love. The pencil stick iron creates spiral type curls instantly which last until it’s washed out, simple to use and styling options are endless. This is a game changer in terms of creating texture and form that has been missing in the market he screamed on stage ( again he thinks he is some kind of rockstar ) 

If your bored with styling and want something new check out Alan Truman products not just the pencil stick but the Argan oil coated tapered tongs to create beach curls are bang on!
