You all do the same thing

we have evolved as a species so much that we know the difference between the basics and can determine what is basically the same thing, remove the soft packaging and its what you are left with at its core. We all like to think we are different and unique but the sad reality is that a lot of people or businesses are basically the same.

I guess most salons cut hair right, most salons do at the core the same thing but delivered in different ways, but its the quality of the product and the culture of the brand that will set it apart from everyone else. The saying that you only know how good or bad something is, when something goes wrong. Its the reaction, that defines the brand and culture, its the knee jerk reaction from the brand that says or defines who it is.

If you are looking for a salon where the staff are qualified, capable of beautiful hair and have a solid sense of who they are and what they are doing then give us a shout. If you, after reading some of this nonsense think you would like to try us out then chances are you are in the right place.

 

 

 

What happens when your account is private

Its not weird to have your account on private, honestly I think it would be nice for a change instead of everyone knowing ( or at least think they know ) what your doing and your life. Following someone or liking an image has become almost as if it holds its own currency, there are people I know very very well and will mention a post that you have made yet never like any of your posts. I find it odd, but I guess each to their own and if thats what they feel like doing and it works for them then fine. Social media should not be such a focus but I guess considering it has bought the entire world and the wealth of information right into your pocket, it kind of does hold a lot of power, both good and bad! But when you have your account set on private know that most people unless its a good friend won’t bother following you, remember you are and will become who you follow!

We have all read that no one posts everything on instagram, its always a little filtered to make sure everything appears the way it should, now with everyone around the world doing it you can imagine that before you know it the bar is being lifted everyday!

If you want fame and fortune then having an account private because you don’t want your family or employer to know who you actually are, will only give you privacy. Sure the constant DM’s some that truly make your day and others that make you feel like you should delete your account get a bit much at times but overall you get out of it whatever you put into it.

Just like writing these posts, having an outlet is for some a very good way to express yourself!

What are you getting up to after your shower that is destroying your hair?

Habits are things you do without thinking or effort its almost like breathing, when we talk about how to treat hair when you wash it, its also once you get out of the shower that will make the difference to how it behaves!

After washing your hair, then comes the  conditioning and this is to be done from the ends to the roots or you may be making your scalp oily, remember its the hair that you want to condition not the scalp! Using a wide tooth comb, comb it through with the conditioner in and then rinse it well!

Once your out of the shower a lot of you ( or so we are told ) flip upside down, wrap a towel around and go have chai, watch TV, read the paper etc etc then rip the towel off and give it a good shake?!

If thats you and you wonder at any point why your hair is a frizzy mess, please read the above paragraph again slowly.

Putting your hair upside down in a towel is cuter productive and will cause undue friction on the hair, then the shake will make sure it goes frizzy by the time its dry!

Pat your hair with the towel, gently, then apply a leave in serum and do NOTHING else unless you are going to blow dry it, don’t shake it, treat it gently and place it don’t flick it!

Coffee + Donuts with Mohit Kumar Sain

We had coffee with Mohit this morning and touched base on life and hairdressing!

Having worked with Rod for the last 5 years there has been a lot that has happened from several seasons doing hair at Amazon Fashion week to various photo shoots for fashion magazines to putting up with Rod, he sure needs a medal!

Having styled many Bollywood celebrities Mohit is not a newcomer when it comes to hair and creating beautiful hair! So we thought to ask a few questions to get to know Mohit a little better so here goes!

What do you like about working with Rod?

I have learnt so much since I have met Rod, the great thing is that he treats me as an equal and values feedback and opinion, its not a usual thing in the Industry and whilst he can be a pain in the *&^ sometimes, he always has the best intentions ( usually lol )

 

Do you love doing Bollywood actresses? 

I really don’t think there is any difference between a Bollywood celebrity and my regular day to day clients, hair is involved and to be honest it is no difference. I recently did a singer that had over 3 million followers on social media and although thats not the highest amount ( Jacqueline at 16.5 million ) at the end of the day the followers or fan base doesn’t change what I am doing, dooesnt matter if they weren’t on social media or only had 10 followers, my work is what is on show and thats all I focus on!

 

The future?

Like everyone I have big dreams and the one thing that Rod is always telling me is that you can have the world, you just have to believe it. I want to have my own salon and Develop my skills further to be the best possible version of myself as I can be. I don’t think that there is an end to learning or growing so I am excited about the future and what it has instal.

You want to blend in or stand out?

Act your age they said as if there is rulebook on what to look like at set ages, you should act a certain way or dress a certain way like when your older you shouldn’t be looking fun or cool, you should be boring and set in your ways. What a load of rubbish!

After al haven’t you put in the hard work and conformed for too long? Its when you get older you should be caring less right, after all you have done the hard yards it should be time to have some fun right?!

So before you decide to be a boring old hag, why not have a little fun with your look and hair and be the person you always wanted to be!

299 Everything on the menu!


We all want a bargain, we want to walk away thinking we got something cheaper than it’s worth, regardless if we do t need it, regardless of quality. Sadly there are some who literally don’t care if they need it or not but just want it because it’s cheap or free!

Well we don’t do discounts, we don’t do deals, packages, red light specials, promo and we also don’t try and sell you our entire menu just so we can create an even increase in our company  sales meeting PDF. 

We specialise in both color correction as well as cutting correction and we see a lot ( like a LOT) of people who come with hair that has been given treatments/services they simply didn’t need. When we take the time to talk to them the majority already know they didn’t need it and in fact it would have been cheaper if they came to us in the first place as we don’t mind saying ” you don’t need that done”. Instilled in our Culture is if someone is better off with something than without it, then tell them.  If they don’t need it, tell them. If it’s bad for the hair, tell them. Honesty build trust, builds loyalty and above all build a long term trust and friendship with beautiful hair and that’s our only purpose!

So before you order everything just because it’s cheap or a “deal” the best thing you could do would be find out if you even need it first. It’s not cheap if it A. Ruins your hair B. You don’t need it.

Your hair growth facts

Your hair outside your body ( the visible stuff ) is dead keratin, the growth happens inside your body so before you start thinking about things you can do on the outside make sure your body is all set up for the best production for growth!


Obviously a good balanced diet is needed, a good amount of sleep, adequate hydration, limited stress etc etc and the list goes on. Let’s think about your scalp as the environment, it effects the growth but last time we checked, limited absorption of product, serum or your favorite ” hair spa” is not going to miraculously effect your hair that is under your scalp. 

A healthy scalp needs regular shampooing, daily is recommended with a Sulfate free product and never, never put oil on your scalp. It effects the ph level of the scalp area which in turn effects hair growth and not in a good way. 

A good diet, good sleeping pattern and good products when regularly shampooing. Sadly eating this or that to try to assist will help as much as eating 300 carrots a day to give you that flushed healthy cheeks lol

Get yourself into our salons and ask us what’s what. 

Your hair is making you look like Knob!

Gone are the days when your talk about your hair is 12-15 days I get it cut, sounds more like the routine of rotating your indoor plants rather than a hair plan!



Often we hear the same thing from  guys, ” I want it short, should look different but can’t look different Monday to Saturday because I’m in a office”.  Sound familiar?  We can’t look and act like everyone and expect to be noticed no matter how good at what we do, we all need to keep everyone excited about our look and personality. 


No you don’t have to shave your head to resemble a knob, but I guess if you did it sure would turn heads!


So no matter what your searching for, be it the perfect job, that promotion or your idea of the perfect girl before you think your the catch of the century with your splashing of 90’s labels your highly tucked pants with your branded belts make sure your hair isn’t so off track it’s cross country!
