2 ways to get the perfect Beach hair!

We get asked, Beach or mountains, city or Surf and we have to say that Water is our jam, the Beach hands down but it should be close enough to a city or civilisation that you can get yourself a great coffee and we all will be happy! Beach hair has to be the most easy going hair, its effortless and has a carefree feel to it that money can’t buy!

If you want to try to replicate “Beach hair” we suggest not trying too hard, it should be easy and starts with the right haircut, done the right way ( we do Dry Cutting technique ) which enables the hair to move and shift to the direction we want, making it effortless and wash and go. The product to try is Label M sea Salt Spray which no peeps it is NOT bottled sea water! After shampoo and conditioner you towel dry your hair and gently spray 5-6 pumps of it in and lightly fluff, LIGHTLY and let it dry naturally! If your lazy and want to try the other option then book yourself a flight to Bali on Malaysian Airlines and check into The Chill House get your Surf game on and relax in the Sun and CHILL OUT

When you have to force it

We all want beautiful hair, like it or not its a fact and a lot of us get stuck trying too hard to make it happen when in fact it may not be meant to be!

 

Our philosophy on hair and what we will and will not do is fairly simple, we believe that is if has to be forced then we don’t want it, doesn’t matter if its a conversation or if its a color you feel you ” have too have” if its got to put your hair health and our sanity at risk we will not do it.

Now I am sure a lot of people could take that as a negative and say we are lazy, trust me when we say we can do miracles when it comes to color but if it comes at a cost that you or us are going to regret due to your hair being the victim, then we are not prepared to do it. We consider it ethical hairdressing rather than trying to get a “sale” we consider the client family so if we wouldn’t do it on our family we wouldn’t do it on you!

Dry cutting gives the right texture to your haircut, its made to measure

Cutting hair dry is not a new thing, in fact its how it all started but what has changed is the science and understanding behind it. We have been dry cutting for over 20 years and we do it for a number of reasons and think its best to spell it out so its easy to understand.

 

You don’t walk around with wet hair, you don’t try on a dress with it wet, its both done dry correct? Just like getting a dress made to measure your hair has to be cut and shipped in the state that it will be in daily and that is dry, it goes way beyond simply cutting hair dry and saying you can do dry cuts too, its about understanding the movement and texture of the hair together with the science of movement and being able to add/remove weight or length to give the desired result.

Its a technique that in Asia has been used for many many years as typically straight hair reacts differently to curly hair and to create the desired texture it has to be done both wet and dry, a personalised technique that needs training and hair movement understanding . If you have ever wondered why some people can just wash and leave their hair and not touch it and it always looks good, maybe its the cut!

If you want hair that is wash and wear ready then its about time that you experienced it from the one place that started “Dry Cutting” in India

Reasons to not tell your hairstylist what to do!

Most hairstylists have experienced clients who come in and chat about there hair, you both seem to be on the same page, the game plan explained and all agreed too.

Then the moment you start they start to move hair around and give you a step by step how to cut it, which “piece” needs cutting and why. Now we get it some people get anxious and we will make every effort to calm you down but seriously!?


The main reason why this won’t work is because you won’t be happy until we cut that one piece shorter or leave that one section out etc etc. We know hair better than you or you would be cutting it yourself, we know there are some salons that just have no idea and give you chest pain by simply being in the same street as them, we know we do!

That’s not us, if you would feel more comfortable to come in and chat about your hair before your appointment ( a day before or a week before ) please do that because we have a structure and system to follow and by swapping and changing 15-20 times through the cut is never going to make you happy!  Now on another note, please understand that your version of brown and your next door neighbours version of brown is different, due to life filters we all have a different version of things so before we color we always make sure that we are on the same page in terms of color words, do we pull the color chart out…some times but rarely as a lot of people think the swatch they choose is the color we go and select and it is so far from that its not funny!

If you trust us dont tell us what to do, if you dont trust us then keep walking

When the thing you want most will end up destroying you!

It happens when the one thing you want more than anything in the world, you also know its going to destroy you, whatever it is at some point you have to realize its not right for you! If you are looking for new hair then dont have a set mindset of trying to do the one thing that you have had in your mind for years and never been able to get it, maybe its not for you, maybe it is too and you have been going to the wrong place lol!

Its amusing when some salons try and convince you that they are cheaper and to save money by buying more than you need when typically when a salon talks about money the intent is not to save you but to get it from you ( not saying all but its typically ).

So how do you save some bucks on your hair and still look hot? Well here are some easy hints to get more bang for your buck!

  • Color is one of the most expensive things you can doand whilst its important its also important to know a few facts so you dont get taken for a ride! Color rarely needs to be taken through the ends of your hair, its a myth and the idea of ” Lets freshen it up” is bollocks! Natural hair is slightly darker at the roots and slightly lighter at the ends! FACT! Just get the regrowth done and not the ends unless there is a situation and looks terrible, this will save you money each visit!
  • The further away from your natural color you color your hair the faster you will see the regrowth, if you have white and they do it black, guess what….you will have to go again in 2 weeks and get the roots done! Go 2 shades lighter it wont annoy you as fast and save you time and money!
  • Hair Spa, now this one is a good one! Well depending on your location but some tend to play this service up like its going to turn water into wine! Hair Spa is meant to be a treatment to restore moisture, protein and strength or at least thats what you think, well it is but a lot of salons use a cheaper version and put you under a steamer so your cuticle swells up and feels smooth but 24 hours later nothing has changed. Skip the hair spa and ivest in the right take home products!
  • Rebonding and keratin are not and we repeat NOT for everyone no matter how good the deal is, it simply may not be worth doing on your hair and sorry to say may be a waste of money, rebonding is a waste of money and no one should be doing it!
  • Getting a trim or getting a cut is not any difference in price typically and neither it should be, get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks, book it in advance and keep the booking and a lot of salons will give you a discount!

 

We get asked why are we so honest a lot ( not just saying that trust us lol ) but consdiering we are possibly the only salon in India that just does hair and not this and that as well you would think we would say yes to everything, well we dont. If you are better of with it then we will tell you about it, if you are better off without it then we will tell you that too. We are busy because we tell the truth and make sure no matter what, your hair is our advertising everyday, its that simple!

Besides simply shaving your head these could save you a lot of money and still have you looking like a model so your welcome!

No we are not going to teach you Tennis or tricks to play with balls, although that would be a good topic but not going there!

If you love someone, tell them, if you fancy someone, tell them life is too short to live with regrets, it is also too short to live your life not to the fullest and be loved the way you deserve!

No matter what you are doing this Valentines day, it doesnt define you, you define you!
