The hair cut to bring peace into your life!

You all have enough going on the worry about getting a blowout every few days and end up looking too done up right?!

Alexa Chung in L’OFFICIEL Russia

I think it’s safe to say that this is possibly the sexiest haircut and the way it’s styled / not styled makes it hotter!

Imagine wash and wear, literally!

Collar bone with long layers and spliced into in all the right places this is it!

This is what you look like in your fancy office little Miss fancy

So you love to tell everyone how important you are, I like my hair long because it looks good for certain parties!

This is what you look like in your office little Miss Fancy Pants!

CUT YOUR HAIR

No fly’s on me

You woke up and decided that you wanted something fresh, we all say thank god! But just because you finally decided after 5 years of no change that this change is going to last you another 5 years!

Image via @Ugly World Wide

It’s cool to change things up, seriously but you should be doing it even in small ways every time you get your hair done. Change, evolve and have fun!

Babe you look stupid, please stop using these app’s

We all have someone on our following that is obsessed with these face smoothening apps, they actually think they look good still!

Newsflash, your in your 50’s or at least we thought you were but these app’s make you look 65 and desperate so stop it! Yes you, stop it!

If you hadn’t noticed the world has become a lot more authentic and anyone who knows you or you know them, let them see the real you!

Our door is open

We get asked a lot when are we open, then usually get told it’s 10 min too early or 5 min too late. We are open the following hours,

Monday – Saturday 10am – 8pm

Sunday’s 11am – 6pm

Now the reason we are open less on a Sunday is simply so our team can get some family time just like everyone else. We can open after hours and do open early, if it’s made prior and comes with a surcharge.

So if you want to get in before work, no problem but you better keep it!

You can either call 01141010011 dm us on social media, please note early or after hours appointments won’t be entertained for someone who has not been before & all no shows incur 100% payment

It says 3 min but I’m going to leave it in for an hour!

So you got yourself a hair product, run the bath and decide you are going to leave your 3 minute miracle treatment on for a 4 hour power packed boost?

Sorry to tell you but it’s not going to do anything more than it would in the specified time, typically 3 min max!

Oh sorry you thought the chemists designing the product had it wrong? They don’t babe, grab a fag or glass of wine and listen to some music.

I’m trying to grow it so why would I get a haircut?

Here is the thing, you want to grow it but you still need to cut it every 6 weeks!

I know what your thinking and if you maintain less being cut off then obviously it will still get longer, makes sense right?

What happens when you don’t remove split or damaged ends is that the split travels up the hairshaft and more is needed to be cut off. The frayed, Brocken ends make it look dry, out of shape and behave badly ( more than a 3 year old coming off a sugar high ).

Trim every 6 weeks, even if it’s half of what has grown or less, as your hair grows it will be healthy. Prevention is better than cure!

How to shop for new hair

Every now and then we get bored with our clothes, work, routine, life and everything just becomes bla. Its sometimes your perception of what you think versus reality but it still has the same effect, you feel flat.

That stupid saying that ” Change is as good as a holiday” is utter bollocks, give me a beach holiday and keep my hair looking the same anyday ( but I guess it has some merit, since it’s about escaping). If you have never had a change of style, semi drastic then you have never felt the immediate power boost to your inner self, that’s if it suits and done correctly.

There is a very simply rule of thumb we go by and it works 90% of the time, to be able to get you in the right head space if you are unsure of what change you are after.

Firstly understand you don’t have to know what you want, that we can work out with you ( a good hairstylist will ask a lot of questions, almost more than the FBI ). What you do need to know is, you want a change. Sounds odd hearing this, we know but often we get people who don’t want anything off the length, no layers, no bangs, no color change but desperate for a change. 😳

Susan, if you don’t change something we can’t change anything.

Drop in speak to us and let us work it out!

Find out what is the best color for you

When you want to get a color, it’s always a trade off between what is hot and on trend as well as high Maintainence right? After all no one wants a color they need to redo every few weeks, that’s just not practical or cool!

The trick is using multiple tones to add the overall color, the use of varies shades adds depth and texture ( possibly the most over used word ). If it’s highlights you are looking for then using two different colours it changes the way it looks dramatically but yet keeps it low Maintainence. If you go for one color, chances are with less variation the natural hair will be visible faster.

With balayage you are best to keep it to one color and don’t go as light, it looks best when it’s more natural and as if it’s happened over time in the sun. Don’t get fooled by thinking more is better, less is best when colouring your hair typically.

Count my fingers

Have you ever just wanted to give someone the bird🖕🏻?

Well we have, it’s no secret we do t have a filter when it comes to speaking our mind, don’t let it put you off in fact we think we are fairly nice people. We love what we do, we are fairly good at it ( according to us anyway ) and super honest. If you are searching for yes mam no mam then keep looking co’s we ain’t it. If you want awesome hair and happy to turn up on time and speak like a human, we all will have s great time!

If you think you can tell us how to do your hair then quite frankly it’s going to be fun but more than likely won’t end the way you expect.

Love peace and happiness to you all 🙏🏻✌🏻

What is it going to take for you to be happy

I have known so many people in my life that have had that knee jerk comment ” I will be happy when”!

Could be I will be happy when I’m on the beach, happy when you get the new job, happy when something is over, happy when you have money in the bank etc etc. I never got it, it’s like you give power to the situation and are going to be constantly waiting for something to happen before you are happy, which is kind of stupid.

No matter how many followers you have, what color the tick is or even if your on social media, we are all the same! Stop thinking you will be happy when and start being happy now! Sure you may have been screwed over, things didn’t turn out the way you hoped or even the right people all turned out to be wrong. It’s a moment, it’s not forever!

The most famous, well known or successful people I have ever met no matter what the end goal is, all say the same thing. No matter what you achieve, by the time you achieve it, you have already moved onto a bigger goal so you never feel like you have made it.

Destination happiness is a mystery destination you will never reach regardless of how well your last post fetched numbers!

If you have a long face you can not have long hair

If you take a look in the mirror and your a little honest with yourself, just for this exercise ok then you can go back to denial.

If your face shape is slightly long, oval or oblong you can not have long hair and it’s that simple. Look at the image below and try to get it, the hair can either enhance your face shape and make it look longer, or balance it out and make it look more balanced.

Your not ugly it’s just an balance between getting it right and having the hair you think you want!

No babe that’s not how you get “Ash blonde”

I kid you not I think if we just write down the questions we get asked, it would make a great comedy skit. Jokes aside and not putting you all down ok so chill out!

The darker the hair, the more red pigment, so regardless of if you are Indian, Chinese, Australian, Pakistani or British hair is the same. The Lighter the hair the easier or shall we say the more achievable it is.

Can we give you a cost?

Easy answer is no because it might go white in 2 applications, it also might take 6 applications over 2 weeks and several toners.

Is it possible?

It’s not up to our skills ( not in an arrogant way ) it’s up to your hair! Several layers of color, the odd keratin treatment and a few fools in there, chances are it will combust before it goes ash!

How long will it take?

Anywhere between 4 hours and 72 hours, is that rough enough for you?

How long will it last?

The tone will change over two weeks and may need doing again. The hair lightness will be there until it grows out! ( you will see dark spots in 2-3 days lol yes 2-3 days)

Rough cost?

Between 15,000 – 52,000 rp plus taxes just for the color.

Will it hurt?

Your pocket, yes! Your scalp…. well a bit yes. Imagine not as bad as childbirth but more than a tattoo.

Wash & Go

It’s no wonder we don’t get time to head to salons like we used too years back, life is jam packed and getting the basics ticked off is hard enough let alone “me time” in a salon right?

It’s one of our things, if you want to call it that. We don’t create a “blow dry” culture with the work we do, not intentional and yes we do blow dry’s but our cut isn’t meant to be forced fed dry or into place.

I’m sure a lot of you have been to a salon and had not one not two but maybe even three people tugging at your hair all at the same time, certainly not relaxing or good for your hair. A good cut should move and to some extent sit into place with little effort.

Gone are the days of overdone hair that is more like an extra from a old English black and white movie, it looks old.

Saying all that, if you eat your hair done, drop us a message on Facebook or Instagram or give us a call, promise you will enjoy it.

Social media vs Reality

Sure combined we have approx 730,000 followers combined between brand and our personal accounts on social media and it’s by no means a large number in today’s reality and increasing move onto social networks for youth in India. There are a lot of users that just aren’t into it and only post every year once maybe twice without feeling a tight chest after not having posted for a week.

What is interesting is that we all post positive images and at times some will go out of the way, even country to make the feed look good. Not many will post an ugly photo and talk about how crap the day was or how depressed they are, it doesn’t sell right!?

We have now positioned ourselves and everyone who comes after us as a base line to “life is perfect”. I have experienced everything from it’s ok for you, your life is perfect or don’t worry it wouldn’t affect you. Now whilst I can easily say it’s not, I am blessed to have the life I have and it hasn’t been easy and continues not to be. Did we work for it, hell yes! Did we plan for it and work on that plan continuously until we got what we wanted, yes and continue to do it! Haven’t reached were we want to yet but can assure you we will!

The impression of always on holidays or only positive things happening is called filtering your outflow on social media and everyone does it! Your more likely to be attracted to a feed of positive and I’m fairly sure your not searching “depressive quotes” to use as your caption, unless your an attention seeker. Now social media is fun and if you want it to be fun treat it like that, used for marketing or showcasing what you do it’s an amazing tool that without a doubt has changed the game forever.

Fun fact for everyone, no ones life is that perfect, it’s what you make of it. Sure life is bloody amazing and I feel blessed every day I wake up, beautiful house, beautiful partner, self employed, great friends and food on the table but let’s be honest. That song after a few times heard is kinda boring.

Life is hard, it will hurt, you do need to work, nothing comes easy, you will loose at some point, nothing is forever and no one cares. Let that sink in for 15 seconds stand up and work your butt off to reach your goals rather than thinking about that private jet you should be buying. Although once we get ours, trust me will be posting pictures daily just for you haters 👍🏻

Want to go blonde?

We get asked a lot can I have ash blonde a LOT! So here are some hard facts you should know before ordering it like it’s a play of chicken tikka at the local dhaba!

No matter what “treatment” you think you have researched, there is a limit to what your hair will withstand and what you have had done over the last 6-12 months will partially determine if it falls out or not!

If your hair has never looked like the above photo, your lucky 🍀. If you want to go blonde understand if it’s done incorrectly this can happen fairly easily if it’s done incorrectly. So if your wondering where the worst thing can happen, take at look at this. That’s the worst!

Tea bagging

Ok so I guess some know some don’t but it’s irrelevant right now so google it and thank us later for the smile.

Yes if you come to us, we have amazing coffee, fresh ground latte’s but we do use Tea Bags in case you wondered.

We use, we don’t do

Do not try this at home

Because we all like to be rebels, the moment you hear this you may be already planning on giving it a shot. Certain things are harmless to try a DIY and certain things are not, after all I guess years of study there are things that will be taught you can’t get from a 3 1/2 minute YouTube video ( but then again who knows right!)

Things not to try yourself

  • Plastic surgery
  • Replacing your hard drive
  • Refilling gas cylinders
  • Knee replacement
  • Botox
  • Dental work
  • Cutting or colouring your own hair
  • Giving your self a hair transplant ( or kidney transplant for that matter )
  • A tattoo
  • Waxing your Va-jay-jay
  • And no I didn’t slip the hair ones in to be all dramatic, we have seen some whoppers come try and fixing it after things have gone terribly wrong. Understand some things are better done by someone who does it for a living after studying for years.
  • What to do when your hair has gone for a toss

    Have you ever got to the point where your hair has had so much done to it, to try and make your life easier yet everything you do is making it worse?

    @planethollywoodgoa

    It needs rescuing, it needs someone to tell you to stop, reassess and work out the smartest way to get you back in track. Keep in mind a lot of salons motivations are to add cash in till versus actually fixing the problem, a lot of the time to fix the problem it will involve not doing what you want and you not getting things your way ( that’s why it’s hard to hear sometimes and you may search for a faster result, which doesn’t exist ).

    We find a lot of clients come to us after trying to get their dream hair after they have had a series of expensive ” it’s going to solve all your problems” services. Good or bad, we are know not to sugar coat much, what you see is what you get!

    When your not feeling your best and someone tells you something will fix it, you tend to believe them because they are the professionals after all but no matter where you live, you really need to do your fact checking first. I would always suggest google but again you need to filter that too, a lot of companies pay people to slag off other companies online ( I know right 😂) so some amount of common sense is involved when looking and it’s always advisable to get a face to face ( it’s free ) and get opinions.

    Who even calls anyone

    Honestly most of you probably don’t even use your phone to call anyone anymore, laptops are hardly used and most of our work is done from your mobile. Shit I’m writing this on my phone, uploading images and posting it from bed.

    When we think about work and marketing it’s completely a waste of time almost having a landline number, in fact at home I don’t have one, who even does anymore.

    With 70-80% of our bookings now being done via DM’s on social media it means we are open 24/7 which is cool, hard work but cool. It’s honestly great to be connected to everyone all the time, sure eventually we all need some time off but if it’s 11pm on a Saturday night and you decide you want to get your hair done the next morning then it’s easy AF to slide a DM and wait.

    Sure if the business isn’t going to answer for 24 hours then it’s useless but if it all works then it’s solid gold!

    Slide away!

    The fade haircut

    Remember not so long ago, almost every guy walking around had their hairline cut so square and high it made the look like a Lego character. It was terrible, grew out in 2-3 days and looked hideous!

    Welcome the fade haircut! Tapered in from nothing it creates a very smooth tailored finish and can be done slightly longer so it’s not so short. Obviously the shorter the cooler it looks and the longer it will last. You can have a high fade ( like above ) or a drop fade ( which is only fading lower. Either way we love it!

    When you hair isn’t what it used to be

    Remember back when you were 23 life was gold, you could stay out till 4am drink like a fish, eat whatever you want and still be on top of your game at 10am?

    Well your now a little older and that type of life, even the thought of it makes you feel sick just thinking about it. Guess what, as you get older things change, yep sure you always bagged people who used to have a bad back or struggled after s big night but that’s you now!

    Your hair at 19 is never ever ever going to be the same when you are 25-30-35 or 50 and no matter how many times you tell yourself, or us it’s not going to change it! It’s life and your body changes, can you turn the clock back….. in short no. Yes there are products and diet that may help marginally to ensure the best possible hair but it’s not going to be the same ever again!

    Moral of the story?

    Enjoy what you have, when you have it, embrace change and make the most of what’s in front of you. No matter what, tomorrow won’t be the same as it is today, it’s change and you need to be happy your alive.

    See real time photos of these celebrities getting their hair done?

    Now maybe because I didn’t grow up here or maybe because I’m naturally ignorant but I’m kind of blazè when it comes to Bollywood ( sorry ). By that I mean I would barely wait in a line for French fries let alone to see someone’s face. In fact even if I was 5 years old waiting to sit on Santa’s knee for that traditional photo in the shopping centre, I still don’t think I would bother.

    Having the chance to meet some amazing people some work in offices, some outside and some in movies, sorry to break your bubble….they are, we are, all the same.

    Therefore we don’t go down that route of posting photos, unless it makes them more normal that is.

    And whoever can eat a Hamburger like this boss Chrissy Teigen then deserves every bit of shoutout possible.

    If your celebrity crush can’t woof down a quarter pounder like a boss, are they even crush worthy? Ask yourself that!

    If it’s dying you need to change what your doing or throw it out

    We all hold onto things that aren’t working or don’t fit, could be because you like the idea of it or it could be you are scared of the options. Either way at some point you have to just let it go. If your plant is dying you don’t just sit there and watch it die do you?

    Now we aren’t saying shave your hair off, although for some you absolutely should. What we are saying is don’t hold on to it and expect things to miraculously change.

    If you always do what you always done, you will always get what you already have!

    In other words, nothing will change until you do, it’s really that simple. So if your holding on thinking things are about to change, chances are they won’t unless you change first.

    How to not to get out the knots

    Well in our quest to make sure we cover everything, leaving nothing out we wanted to give a big shout to the basics which we see are s new thing in some salons and bathrooms!

    We are talking about how to remove knots!

    Now it’s not a new thing to start from the bottom, but some people just like to rip it out like it’s a birthday present or something but it’s not! Combing directly from the roots whilst you have these tangles will cause damage to your hair and possibly break, split and create so much drama in your hair that only scissors will fix it!

    So make sure you start from the bottom and remove the knots as you work up the hair, another amazing invention is this little beauty, the Tangle Teezer which will get the knots out quicker than the sale items being sold out at the season end Sale at Zara.

    Check out Tangle Teezer

    What Ash blonde actually looks like and how to get it

    It’s a fairly common request ” I want to be ash blonde” typically like it’s ordering a pizza with little understanding what’s involved or if it’s even possible. After all that’s our job so we are cool with it, but want to shed some light on the facts about it.

    Now without getting overly technical the above photo is not on dark hair, the base color is lighter and has a slightly warmer tone, the highlights however are ash so the two combined give you what you are seeing not the individual “ash” color.

    The darker you are the more gold/red pigment your hair has & will throw off when it’s lightened.

    To get “ash” your hair must be lightened ( it doesn’t come out of a tube, it’s a process and not typically a short one either ) and to keep the hair in one piece would require 2-3 applications then toning. Sadly I have seen foils being done and irons or a hairdryer put over the foils to speed it up ( your hair will be fried, cuticle will snap off and I can guarantee it’s gold as your reading this. Bleaching hair you should not add heat, you can’t speed up the process! There is no short cuts only bad decisions and poorly educated people doing it or endorsing the wrong people.

    So can it be ash on dark hair?

    Yes but check out the photo above, you can see super light sections and some slightly gold right, that’s because it’s done over several sittings to get the hair light and keep it on your head.

    Now whilst you think you may want ash, chances are even after you get it ( if it’s possible ) you will have upkeep you will need to do in order for it to stay the right tone!

    Possible yes, easy no but possible and for those claiming you have ash, this is what ash actually looks like!

    So if you have had a bad color, give us a call let’s see what we can do to get your hair instagram ready!

    Electric dreamer & that hair!

    Seasons come and go and we all tend to follow clothes trends but very few will flip their hair look as often. Chances are it will be two or three seasons of “I’m growing it” or I like it short and not much in between.

    Shot at The Glasshouse on the Ganges

    We love our bae Merrylin Boro who within the last 8 months had the following looks,

    The Bowl haircut

    Shag

    Shag with micro bangs

    Bob

    Micro bob and micro bangs

    And now is growing the bangs out! It’s one thing to hold onto something that works for you it’s another not to move with a look and this is what we all strive for.

    Evolving your hair look should be lots of small changes so you don’t get bored and people looking at you are constantly looking at something fresh!

    Should you blow or is it ok not too?

    We get asked a lot now about wash and wear hair vs overdone blowouts which are kind of outdated and tend to leave you looking like an Auntie from an Indian TV drama from circa 1970’s. We are very anti fuss and in fact promote easy hair as it brings out your personality and if managed correctly looks best.

    Can you get a blow out, of course you can, but it shouldn’t look too stiff and stuck into place or you run the risk looking older than you are, unless you’re trying to look older to get into clubs that is. It’s not about having messy hair it’s about having hair that you can actually manage at home yourself.

    Who needs extra work when getting ready?

    Using our signature dry cutting which is more than just cutting hair dry ( it’s about cutting it into the shape pre washing and post drying using a Japanese technique of cutting ) enables you the hair to be encouraged to sit a certain way. Now this doesn’t mean defy gravity but rather assist dramatically in the “wash and go” look so you can look good everyday.

    If we can’t make you look good chances are, your Ugly

    How to control the frizz

    The rain comes and you are all suddenly on the Internet searching for a miracle ( sorry but 😂) the extra moisture in the air causes hair to go crazier than your first boyfriend but there is a solution but you probably won’t like it but here goes.

    Hair and the curl is a direct reflection of the moisture content of your hair, the more moisture the cleaner the curl, less moisture ( internally ) the more misbehaved the curl. If you want a product you most likely have already in your bathroom try a serum when it’s wet and again gently applied.

    Tips to help prevent frizz

    If your a hair maintained ( trimmed every 6-8 weeks regardless if your growing it or not ) this removes split ends that will themselves add to the frizz.

    If you are one of those people who flips your hair upside down shakes it, or wraps it in a towel on top of your head stop doing it!!! This type of mistreatment will only add aggregation to your hair once dry, pat it dry don’t rub it like you’re drying a wet dog!

    When you have the conditioner in each time you wash it ( and you should condition it every time, it closes the cuticle and prevents moisture escaping ) use a wide tooth comb when it’s in and detangle.

    If you get a blow out, chances are at some point you have experienced the hairstylist burning your hair into place vs gently encouraging it. Finish the blow out with cool air, this helps close the cuticle giving it shine and keeping the moisture inside.

    Use 2-3 drops of Serum ( we recommend Cristali Liquid by Alfa Parf ) when it’s freshly washed and again as it’s 90% dry

    Veg or non Veg?

    So recently I met someone who had lost a LOT of weight, we got chatting ( my first reaction was is she sick? ) she had been on a “trend diet” loosing over 10kg in a matter of two months which is crazy!

    After we finished chatting and me thinking wtf I need to know what she did here, we started talking hair and this is when I knew something was wrong. About 30% of her hair at the top had fallen out, like gone, vanished finito bye bye. I Couldn’t believe what I was seeing it was crazy how suddenly this had happened between visits.

    You all need to know the basics behind a healthy lifestyle and food, rather than possible having a flirtatious relationship with what goes into your mouth or treating it like fuel, try thinking about it as the difference between health and sickness. We get a lot of people ask ” what should I eat to make my hair grow longer faster etc etc” these same people literally put their hair through hell, most times not even getting it trimmed regularly, over doing colours and damaging it constantly. Yet expect eating a so called ” super food” will make it all go away…. it won’t.

    Before you get into a diet that will surely drop a few kilos fast it’s important to know you could be entering into a situation leaving your body short of what it needs and could experience all sorts of side effects. Our bodies need certain things in order to function properly so ensure that’s happening before you try and defy science and think you can break the law of nature.

    Get a big sign they said

    Seems like there is a lot of people that are not in business or hairdressers that know so much more than us and we love them all ❤️

    Apparently and we never knew this but if you have a big sign you will be busy, if it lights up you will be known as the best, get neon plus one that flashes and you may as well order that private jet because you are going to be rocking!

    Shit, apparently cutting hair well has nothing to do with it? If only we had known we would have lit it up like a Christmas tree 🎄

    Well two years in and we are going stronger than ever so I guess the sun or moon must be lighting it up cos we are doing great! For those who say we can’t find you, there is a little app called “google maps” and if you type in “Rod Anker Salons” chances are it will take you right to our door, right beside Altitude Cafe or two doors down from Bombay Shirt Company.

    If you are still struggling like a German trying to eat rice with chop sticks 🥢 then head to Meherchand Market and call us on 01141010011 as our team love explaining it to you, your driver, your auto driver or the bus driver if the case may be.

    See you soon

    How to get the perfect blonde

    Whilst you all may know us as a salon that talks nonsense, yes it’s true a lot of the time but when it comes to hair color we never joke.

    Follow Jason on Instagram

    Using what we have around us we went for a walk and talked about counteracting colours, what colours balance other colours and what colours enhance other colours. It’s one thing to know the theory and another to have it truly understood.

    Even a walk in colourful Meherchand market can be educational if you are open to it!

    Come see what we can do for you

    How to get that shine

    Healthy hair is not that hard to get, getting shine is possible for everyone but it comes with a catch and it’s typically going to cost you less and you will spend less time in the salon than you do now!

    We hear all sorts of things happen in salons from being told to do “hair spa” treatments weekly to apply oil, both are a waste of time and money ( typically but certainly the oil!!!)

    So how do you get shinny hair?

    Well instead of treating it like a rug you bought at the local market start treating it like a vintage hand woven rug and you will be on your way. A lot of people we meet have had every service known to mankind ( because they were told it was good for them ) and are now left with dry brittle damaged hair that the only fix is a pair of scissors.

    We believe that hair must be respected in order to be healthy both in the salon as well as at home, you can’t expect to get something nice done once then treat it like a rug your washing in the Ganges and expect it to be at its best just because you have somewhere to be tonight. Doesn’t work like that!

    1. Do less color application, don’t take it through the ends every time, maybe only once a YEAR!
    2. Keratin is ok but is not a treatment to make your hair healthy, it’s to relax the hair but with the application being done with heat will cause some damage so don’t do it unless you actually need it!
    3. Getting a blow out done wrong can cause as much damage as a bad color. Your hair should never be burnt into place and in fact majority should be done with cool air and finished off and set into place with cold air to close the cuticle.
    4. Don’t trust shampoo unless you trust what’s in the bottle. Always condition.
    5. Don’t use excess heat, wash and leave it once a week without drying or using heat tools.
    6. Stop flipping your hair around, honestly this entire hair flip business you might think is like a mating call but is more annoying than you can imagine as well as creates unnecessary friction.

    The most deceiving color

    Some things are not as obvious and to be honest sometimes we have been told our posts are s little cryptic, thanks for noticing lol. When it comes to the color, black it’s a little more complicated and there are pro’s and con’s so let’s talk about them.

    Black will shine more as it reflects all light, so basically it may look good on the surface but could be in terrible condition, you won’t see it but you will surely feel it sooner or later, it’s a player 😳

    It’s color will not show details and can be deceptive, you can not see what’s its doing, could be good but could be bad you won’t know.

    The reality is the movement and texture won’t be visible so a change won’t be noticeable as if there was variation.

    Side note

    Add variation, not saying blonde or white but don’t have it completely black as this is rarely a natural color, add another darker color to it to offset its starkness. After all is said and done, no one wants to have fake looking hair.

    How to be the best in whatever you do

    I don’t know why but some people generally the lazy ones tend to think they successful people are born rich or have had friends that have helped. Not sure who they are referring too or what planet they live on but it couldn’t be further from the reality.

    A few years ago I put every motivational book in the rubbish, removes them all because I realised the time I was wasting reading how to be motivated I wasn’t doing anything actually productive. All I needed was to do more think less about how, just start. There was a little motivation from someone as to why I kept them all and hearing someone tell me they are useless made me think hard about why I had bought them in the first place.

    I hear people that have the most elaborate business plans and really well thought out PDF presentations that you know has the depth of a puddle on the footpath and the main motivation is to make money. I don’t know about anyone else but if money is the main motivation you will not have the same drive as if it were to create something bigger than you for a cause or reason. I guess only you will know if it’s money driven or it comes from the heart.

    Find something that you love doing, then find a way to do that every day until you die, put every effort in every day and continue to find ways to be better. Always think of yourself as a novice not an expert and keep going patiently. That’s the secret, no shortcuts that will last or get you anywhere you want to be!

    The secret to the best looking color you have ever had

    We are pro natural, I know kind of weird coming from a hair salon when talking about color but we actually believe enhancing what you have rather than masking it and creating a high Maintainence situation.

    A lot of woman are letting the grey show and we are helping them, because we know you have more to do than sit in a salon every 2 weeks covering up your white hair.

    The issue starts early on when you get a color maybe years ago and the color your doing is still the same as you had when you were 25 and you haven’t been that color since. Your hair lightens up as you get older as well as your skin and in order to look natural. Where the problem starts is not when you have 20-30 grey hairs, it’s why it’s above 40% white and you are still colouring it dark ( in most cases we see black!). One of the problems is sometimes hairdressers find it easier to color it black and give you 100% coverage to make you happy but in fact this will give you a visible regrowth faster than ever!

    Where we come in to try to save you money, time and look good is we take the color and try and match you a color that’s between your natural color and the white that is appearing. This gives you less mark and definition in the regrowth, making visits needed less frequent. This not only gives you more time, it makes you look younger and a better version of yourself.

    So if you are tired of being tied down to this color decision it’s about time you changed.

    How far will you go for a selfie?

    If you didn’t know by know some people get paid to take photo’s post them online to look like it’s natural, I know right. This is a sign of marketing changing the landscape of what we do and it’s real and in full swing. Does it work better than a print ad, well that’s not for us to say but we can tell you results are there for sure. For us a large portion of our business interacts, finds us, books with us from social media. Some Salon Facebook some Rod’s Facebook and some via Salon Instagram and some via Rod’s instagram

    Do selfies work, yes. You have to have a voice or it’s just a selfie and you can simply upload all the photos in your phone and expect things to start happening because they won’t.

    Recent studies show that by 2020 TV as we knew it will not hold the power in advertising that it once did, things have changed and in fact majority of people don’t even watch commercial TV anymore, option for online like Netflix.

    If you don’t move with the times or try and be ahead of it, you will fail it’s just a matter of time how long you will last.

    What will it take for you to do what you want?

    It might be that every says to you your hair looks good long, or it could be your so lucky to have a guy that has such a good job. But what makes you happy is the question you need to ask yourself!

    Image via Instagram @european.son.420

    Isn’t love, unconditional? Both self love and the love of others? What changes with a haircut? Nothing. What is the big deal if you work in an office or freelance as an artist? Nothing Whats wrong with being independent? Nothing.

    Make yourself happy, you only get one life and it’s best served up with honesty with yourself and what you want and who you want to be, regardless of what anyone says.

    If someone has a problem, it’s not your issue.

    Be happy

    When you want the blow & the top knot

    Isn’t it funny that we are so obsessed with everything a lot of us have lost our tolerance to be a good human!

    People fight, opinions vary, some have bad days, others just loose it every now and then but if your in it your in it. Compromise and support isn’t just a verbal thing. It is about sometimes getting a Top knot and other times getting a blowout and/or giving.

    Some days it’s Top knots some days it’s a blow out, keep the variation alive

    Be kind, love one another and 😀

    5 reasons your color fades?

    Nothing is more frustrating than getting a color done, loving it only to have it wash out a week later or at least fade.

    Now before I hear from someone saying the black has washed out of the roots, it’s not sweetheart it’s called regrowth we are talking fade which has nothing to do with growth. Here are a few causes of color fade you should discuss with your hairstylist.

    1. The condition of your hair has a direct link to the longevity of your color, the better condition the longer the color tone stays true.
    2. If you have lightened the hair ( aggressively ) to achieve the desired color chances are your color will turn warm ( gold & red ) sooner.
    3. The color you have had previously affects the color you do now.
    4. The shampoo and conditioner has a huge impact on your color. Sulfate free shampoo is the only shampoo you should be using. If you Shampoo then you must condition, yes every time.
    5. No oils, yep no oils! They do NOT add any Benifit end in fact will cause the internal structure of your hair into a moisture free zone stripping it dry causing the color to change completely. Upside, the layers of oil that can’t be washed off will make it look healthy, downside is it will be dryer and tougher than you have ever had!

    So before you start reading home remedies or taking advice from people that give you a remedy out of the kitchen we suggest getting facts out of a salon. Come speak to us today and see how we can reduce your hair appointments and keep your color longer.

    Is it true parkour is not “let’s go to the park or?” It’s actually a sport

    Ok you got me, of course we knew it’s a sport, we do it getting out of bed like every day. Nope that’s bollocks we don’t.

    What is interesting about the sport that has to do with hair is this. It uses the weight and speed of movement to best transfer you from A to B to C to D without using excessive force. So basically it’s using your own body weight and flow of movement to transport you.

    Now our technique of cutting it similar we use the adding or removal of weight to manipulate the movement of hair naturally without using excess force.

    Basically we are the Parkour masters of hair, yes we are.

    The only Snow you all are getting is now in Shimla

    For the love of god ladies finally us blokes have been sent blessings ten fold! We were totally over hearing you tell us you’re running away with Jon Snow like you actually thought you would. Well guess what!?

    And please look at Rose Leslie’s face, that smile is for all you girls to know you all lost and no matter how much you talk about it, the only Snow you are getting is in the mountains and you won’t be mountin ( if you know what I mean!

    Congrats to them both

    You call me babe but it feels like f#%face

    There are so many good quotes we can all save and post, use them as captions, hurl them out at the right time socially and yet very few actually live them. It used to be called two faced but I guess now we have new names for it but who knows.

    Constant social media stalking has made us very educated ( almost experts some would say lol ) on the depth of utter crap that some salons quote, they apparently are ALL the best, ALL are the most qualified, saw a few that apparently Rod trained but he didn’t, some bragging they are the biggest and get this one that said it was the first lol.

    God knows no one cares how big your doodle is, only your the one focusing on it, no one cares how much space you have for a salon, no one cares how fast you opened, no one cares about anything other than what you do, how well you do it, how much experience your staff have and if you stand by your product. If you do it and won’t support the consumer if things go wrong, guess what…. your a liar.

    Authentic marketing is the only way to choose a service in a people driven business because it shows personality rather than attitude or a pissing contest.

    So before you get that A frame that says “Your hair is your crown” or “blow out before you go out” or whatever it was put outside your salon thinking your super creative, train, talk and listen, good relationships are a two way street not a bus lane or a one way lane.

    You want to hear a story?

    A lot of times in our life we may know the facts but just feel better hearing another form of reality, we may not believe it but we all want to hear it. We personally love a good story or two but also have both feet firm in the reality bucket when it comes to myths.

    Oh yes and just because your granny told you doesn’t make it fact!

    A lot of what you think you know as fact is more myth than reality but I guess unless you believe it you won’t believe it.

    Some think putting oil on your head actually feeds the hair, reality hair is dead keratin and oil and water don’t mix so no natural oil will be able to be removed nor breathe life into a dead organism but hey your granny knows best! Pulped onion rubbed into your scalp regrow hair, um no it just makes you stink!

    Head massage is good but not essential, hair loss is normal and you can’t stop it, majority of your hair problems are genetic!

    Why are you left on the sideline?

    Let’s go out, they said. It will be fun, they said! Now you are left watching them having fun and are left feeling like you’re a different breed to them, no doubt they will ask what was wrong with you the next day too, like why weren’t you having fun right.

    Well if you can even slightly relate to this, then it’s about time you got your little tush into the salon and starting experimenting with some fresh looks on your hair, no not zebra stripes either that’s just not cool. Maybe some fresh balayage or even bangs but either way it’s about time you took control and made you the centre of attention again!

    Sending it for a wash and blow every now and then isn’t taking care of business

    Ever worn a pair of jeans so much they start falling apart yet you still wear them because they fit so well? If your answer is no then chances are you are not even living life, people do yes, it’s what happens when you’re busy living life and it’s good, very good!

    Well the same thing can happen with your hair, it works, you know how to manage it, dry it, take it out on a Friday night and dress it, hell you probably know how to resurrect it even on s Wednesday night. It’s your bae, you have done the walk of shame with it that many times the Uber driver knows your birthday. You know how much shampoo to use, how long it’s going to take to blow dry it’s just easy.

    But is it still working for you?

    The reality is as we get older ( even 6 – 12 moths ) we change, sure some people are still doing the same tricks they did 10 years ago or still in a toxic love triangle that will require an intervention or one person to stop it. So do you still do the same thing just because it’s easy? Reality no, you have to evolve for yourself and in this case for your look!

    Just because you wore it a certain way in school, babe you are 35 you are not studying anymore your a grown up!

    If you know anything, like even a little ( if you can place an order for an outfit online ) understand your hair needs to change.

    Sending it for a wash every now and then isn’t taking care of business!

    Pastel peek a boo

    The idea of going a pastel color probably has crossed your mind at least once or twice but the time and effort to get it let alone the cost to maintain it has most likely stopped you. Then there is the idea that it’s super visible and in your face right?

    Well it doesn’t have to be, check out this peek a boo line pastel that will show itself only when your hair moves!

    Cool right!

    You blend in better than a Kylie Jenner’s new concealer

    Who else is so tired of seeing the same crap in the name of marketing. Everyone calls themselves and influencer like it’s a commodity or a term you can even claim yourself ( fyi it’s a terms you get called not you call yourself, just like your hair is your hair not hairs! So over that too )

    We see your posts, think ah ok this place might be cool, you go only to discover the person doing the social media might be cool but the place sucks. It needs to flow through and deliver what it promises, from look, attitude as well as personality of the brand.

    For the sake of all our sanity and possibly everyone unfollowing you or altering you to “mute all” pls try to be authentic and a tad original it’s becoming rather boring. Same shirts, same clothes, using references we have all seen and calling yourself original or artistic it’s kinda blah.

    While we are in such a ” clean out the cupboard” kind of mood, no one cares if your the first, biggest, fastest or whatever we only care if you are actually the best and claiming that title only by yourself with no back up is also a sign your telling porky pies.

    Woke up like this

    Everyone has a goal to be able to roll out of bed looking like your ready to be on the cover of Italian Vogue yet your habits or routine possibly are not going to get that happening.

    When you get that blow out and it’s looking amazing you wish it would last forever but if your doing this then chances are it won’t.

    1. Do you ruff up your hair, flip it this way and that like you’re an extra on a hair TVC?

    2. You run your fingers through it too much making it smoother?

    3. At night a satin pillowcase and loosely tie it up or even a loose braid.

    Treat it gentle, move it with your fingers closed together, don’t go all deep and get in amoungst it day 1 or day 2 or it will loose the definition and smoothness.

    Try these tips to get it to last longer, when you wake up remove the hair band, a little serum and smoother it down and you should be good to go!

    Because long hair is your thing

    Ok so let’s just start by saying I get it, this long hair thing, fine ok you want long hair good for you I’m ok with it. What I’m not ok with is when you play with it more than a 13 year old boy plays with his junk, when your standing in front of me in a que flipping tossing your hair and it’s literally going all over me and when you think you can have a dramatic change without loosing length.

    It’s the fact that you think it’s sexy having hair so long you can tuck into your socks, I’m sure someone thinks that hair flip is sexy, sure as hell is not us.

    If you have long hair, we love you but you must look after its & stop flipping

    Breakfast that will make your hair grow & make you rich

    You may not believe your mum, but when you read it on line it’s gospel right?

    Appartments from the fact that they are bloody expensive this blueberry smoothie bowl will change your life. It’s nothing to do what’s in the bowl, it’s putting your mind in the right place whilst making it that will change things for you. It’s not ideal that someone else makes it for you, it’s better if you make the effort to do it yourself because it’s the action that creates the path for you to change your ways. This leads to more positive thoughts, increased productivity, increased hope which leads to excitement which leads to happiness in turn creates change. So before you think how can a beautiful berry/mango smoothie bowl change your life or grow your hair think about that and make a small effort every day for a big change.

    How to protect your hair during Summer

    By now we have all had enough, its been above 40 for the past 3 weeks with the temperature only going to mid 30’s in the early hours of the morning so its no wonder your hair may be feeling a little dehydrated. It can cause color to fade, increase split ends, go frizzy and just make you feel like crap so its a good all round reason to make sure you get on top of it if it hasn’t already.

    Here is what you can do right now to top up the moisture levels!

    1. Book yourself in for a trim 011410100 11 – you should be trimming it every 6 weeks regardless of if you want to grow it or not, it removes damaged ends from heat, sun, styling and life so it can continue to look good
    2. check the shampoo you are using, use a sulphate free one, its more gentle and will keep moisture levels better than any other shampoo. We use and recommend Alfa Parf, yes we stock it and its for sale
    3. Stop doing chemical treatments just because everyone else is, possibly the worst treatment you can do is Rebonding or smoothening, some call it different things but the process is the same. Kerating should ONLY be done if there is no other option and will reduce curl and/or frizz but not 100% so be aware of reality vs great before and after images on social media!
    4. Always condition and use a leave in serum, if your hair gets oils then wash it daily but skipping these two will dry our your hair.
    5. Don’t take your color through the ends, its not needed and will cause damage.

    Hope this helps and remember to cover up your hair in a hat or scarf when your outside, wash it to remove perspiration build up on your scalp which in turn dries out your scalp. Don’t be scared to wash it daily as long as you are using a good product!

    International Freehand hair colouring artists

    Trends come and go but this one will be around for a while we think. It’s a color but it’s imitating natural hair because the longer your hair is the variation from roots to ends is natural. It’s been through more sun, wind, blow drying etc etc so it should be lighter.

    Considering for most of us even getting the time to update the new iOS update is a challenge it’s a color that once done right will give you months of freedom. Now you have more time to do the things that actually matter, after all I’m sure you would agree sitting in the salon every week is hardly adding much value to your life. Unless it’s with us of course.

    Get a free consult and see if this color is suitable for you by calling 011 41010011

    Beauty bloggers & people who just want something cheap with a great deal!

    Random questions you don’t ask your OBYN or your hairstylist but I guess why not, give it a try. If you can save 5% and the only catch is you have to go in at a certain time, walking on one leg, do a check in tagging 5 friends then a Instagram post while you are there tagging at least 2 friends, the salon, geo tag and put in a link into your made up blog that is read by your two bff’s and pay cash. Now that’s a deal that I know some would jump through hoops!

    But yeah your right, we joking, we don’t do “deals” we do hair but if you have an Ex then this may be right up your alley 💕

    Ten ten nails is back and open

    So it’s not normal but I guess that’s ok because either are we, we do hair bloody well too ( just saying ) but we don’t do this and that, like mani pedi, beauty etc etc and we choose not too because it’s best to do one thing the best than 5 things below average. That’s our opinion anyway. Let’s us concentrate on only hair.

    Now with a few shops being effected by the recent sealing in Meherchand market we wanted to let you all know that our favourite place 10-10 nail spa is back and reopen at shop 91.

    What makes a haircut sexy?

    We hear a lot that you want a sexy haircut or color and let’s be honest it’s subjective but at the end of the day you want something that makes you feel sexy more than anything else.

    A dress doesn’t have to be short to be sexy or a top showing cleavage isn’t always sexy it’s about how it fits in the overall picture and how you feel in it. Getting that look is about finding out what you feel, how you think about sexy and what you have in your mind vs choosing something from a menu or Pinterest. We always take the time to have a proper discussion about you, your lifestyle, your dream hair and how you feel because that’s what’s the difference between a good haircut and something that fits you, your expectations and brings you into your true self.

    While we have all seen, heard or experienced the recent escalation in the Delhi “cleanup” and while a lot of businesses have been effected ( over 700,000 ) we are still open. The market is open and whilst the floor size of a lot of businesses has been effected we are all open.

    Come visit Meherchand it’s got parking and is clean and easily accessible.

    Stop Moaning Lisa

    After almost 10 years here in India I’m sure you expect me to say Indian hair is thicker, stronger or this or that and while some of it’s true, it’s basically not. The only real difference is the color.

    Now there are fast differences to how India treats hair, some a little bazaar, like onion pulp, cow pee, raw egg, rubbing garlic of your head, some neem shampoo etc etc we could list hundreds of “old wives tale potions” that are all just based on myth and act as a placebo more than anything.

    Indian culture is warm, welcoming and the food is to die for! The hair is darker and culturally there have been restrictions but attitudes are changing.

    Why are you not replying?

    Some of us remember getting our first mobile phones, wasn’t that long ago. Texting was not our main form of communication, In fact believe it or not it was talking ( wtf right ) well it was! A text would be replied straight away, well because it was rude and ignorant not too. Now…….

    Sorry I didn’t see your messages & calls.

    Being creative problems

    Now in most parts of the world, hairdressing is considered an art, a very creative medium used to create shapes, colours all from a canvas called hair. In other parts of the world it’s considered a job 😳

    Well it’s only in the last few years in India that a “hairdresser” could open a bank account or even apply for credit so I guess we are moving in the right direction. For us hair is art, it’s a canvas that we work on in 3D to create. We get our inspiration from life and really don’t have to look too far for it either.

    Breakfast

    After breakfast

    Mid afternoon walk

    Decided to go get some coffee

    Then headed back to salon

    Met Ball 2018 the heads up

    Tricks to get the perfect selfie

    Now goes without saying or maybe it doesn’t based on what we see, your profile picture is equally as important as what you wear to the interview of your dream job! Will your potential employer look for you on social media? Hell yes, your comments, posts, reactions etc it all says who you are. If your on private and trying to land a job that’s PR or first hand in the public eye, good luck with that too.

    But let’s just say you got it all going on.

    What is the perfect selfie

    Well lit, not a dark nightclub shot.

    By yourself, sure you love your boyfriend or BFF but not here it’s not the place.

    Clear, well lit, by yourself, no drink in your hand!

    Hair done ✅

    If it looks good chances are a lot more likely to get to second base, be it a job interview or a tinder swipe! 😛

    5 ways to get the best hair you have ever had

    Getting the right hair can be a challenge that for some never happens, rather just time fly’s by with hair that’s ok but not amazing. Here are 5 ways that will help you get over the edge before you die!

    1. Choosing the right hair salon is possibly the first step and in sone situations is hard to find. We would always suggest cruising through social media, stalking the tagged photos etc to get a real picture of what’s happening. It’s one thing to post nice photos but another to be able to create them.

    2. Get your act together, do you know what you want? It’s ok if you don’t but put some thought into it, you don’t like your hair, why? Do you want to wash and leave it? Do you like the current color? Is blow drying it daily ok? Does your color always fade? Are you happy with the condition? Do you need to wear it up? There is so many questions which a good hairstylist should be asking to make sure they get to the root of your hair happiness. Be ready.

    3. Invest the right amount of time and don’t rush the appointment, we have seen first hand people saying they have never been happy, yet they happily rock up late then happily inform the hairstylist they need to hurry. Think about it, kinda crazy. Make sure you have time or move the appointment to when you do.

    4. Be honest with yourself and your hairstylist if you have a budget share it, it’s normal to have limits. If you have styling expectations, share them.

    5. Do not try to over manage your session you have talked it out, they have started, then don’t try and tell them what to do, unless of course you think you know better ( in which case why are you there?) if you don’t trust them you shouldn’t be there.

    Hope this helps you get your happy hair moment.

    You brag about having the biggest yolk

    It’s a world where everyone thinks bigger, brighter and faster at times will little regard or care for quality or individuality. Our yolks are the best, we have the most fancy yellow, it’s the brightest etc etc and the list goes on, you know exactly what we mean.

    So we decided to remove the yolks and be the complete opposite, after all why compete when our individuality is our gold!

    Hair could have taken things up a notch

    There are times when you got it all right but there is something not quite right, for the untrained eye ( not really needed in the below case 😂) it may be hard to spot what it is.

    Think like this and you really can’t go wrong, if your hair is bang on you really don’t need to worry about anything else.

    A lot of salons choose to do a little this and that, jack of all trades ( master of none ) with the goal to try and be your “one stop shop” 😂 and only delivering 20% of everything vs being 100% of one thing. Now whilst we get it, a lot of you have expectations that we should be doing hair, nails, your makeup, picking up your groceries, collecting your children, taking them to the toilet, washing their bums, ordering your lunch and the list goes on. But guess what we don’t, we won’t and we will not hesitate to let your little Johnny poop his pants ( nah only kidding but you get the point )

    If you want anything not hair related, your in the wrong house, if you want awesome hair, take a seat Cheryl and let’s get started!

    The Art of Dry cutting from the king of dry cutting himself.

    Yes it’s a sexy back, I know right but that’s not got nothing to do with what we want to talk about now, save that for another day. Dry cutting what is it, why do it and how is it done?

    You may have seen someone cutting hair dry, you may have opted for not getting your hair washed and go straight for a cut but it’s more than likely not a dry cut so what is it?

    We caught up with Rod the first to introduce “Dry Cutting technique” to India and asked him a few questions.

    What is it?

    You need to forget everything you thought you knew about getting your haircut and absorb the following. Getting your hair cut wet then hoping it sits perfect when it’s dry is the same as stitching a suit when the wool is wet, would be stupid right?

    Imagine cutting the cloth wet and thinking you know how it’s going to sit dry, stitched and pressed….. it’s going to be hot and miss!

    Partly cutting when the hair is wet is kind of more practical but the movement and intent of movement is created when the hair is dry, it’s about having the hair fall in its natural state and being able to manoeuvre and predict the flow to either encourage a certain shape or disrupt it is ART. Want more fullness, hair to kick out a certain way, more curl, less curl, flatter hair, more texture or just wash and go hair then that’s something only using this art technique can achieve.

    Will you still need to blow dry it?

    Some people think you can cut hair so it stands on its end, moves a certain way stays flat or full for days and will require no work or effort from you at all. It’s not that way at all, will it help ….100% it creates the framework for a wash and go hairstyle but if you want to be able to look like it’s Red Carpet ready hair then your expectations are a little off. It’s creating the right framework to support, encourage and direct the flow of movement for your hair style, texture and shape.

    Ok we got it now, so basically it’s the only way you should cut hair in future if you want it to look good day in day in day out.

    So who does dry cutting technique in India?

    That I couldn’t tell you but will tell you that fairly possible we are the only ones using this trained technique. The only 3 people in the country doing it the way I learnt with the basics coming from Japan all work with us so yep.

    So that’s that on the dry cutting it is as good as it sounds and if it’s something you think would suit you, your most likely right.

    Guys, choose your haircut carefully!

    You may be one of those people who searches on line for the prefect next look and you finally find it and no one on planet earth is going to convince you its not right because you want it!

    b15e6bd1f18ca64f36ff6500c9cc3ea6

    The reality is that there are times when no matter how much you want it, its just not the right cut for you. Your face shape, head shape and body type is one of the first things you have to take into consideration and whilst the photo above should be an obvious thing for you to realise that with a neck that is long a haircut like this is not ideal!

    Thats the reason it is best to go to a salon that knows the difference!

    Do you ever wonder why if they are that good they offer 50% off?

    Ever wondered why some companies only sell on discount rather than quality?

    Always 10%-50% off or buy one get two etc etc


    You put on sale or discount fish on the second day!

    Your Instagram is cool but you’re as basic as a Parle G biscuit

    We are at an stage we’re more effort is put into having the coolest images on line and yet no effort into being cool or yourself. Brands say one thing yet they do another, people say they do this or that but in reality they only do that to get a Photo.


    The craziest thing is that your personality and what you are putting out doesn’t match in fact not even close, it’s a complete miss match and everyone can see it. Let’s say you’re pro cutting edge and want everyone to think you push the boundaries yet in real life you’re a conformist. Doesn’t work and there is something odd and we can all see it.

    No this isn’t about one person or one brand this epidemic effects a LOT and you have to assume it stems out of insecurity which is sad. We spend all our life trying to fit in yet we spend as much energy talking ourselves up saying we aren’t like the rest 😳

    In an age of social media being the way it is, we have to spend more time reflecting the real you rather than trying to show one thing and acting another.

     

    If you spent the same amount of time as you do selecting and editing your photos, on your life and work you would be a real rockstar!

    It’s really boring and disappointing to meet someone who seems cool but is as basic as a Parle J biscuit

    Rod Anker celebrates 10 Years in Incredible India

    Well its almost 10 years that I have been in this amazing country, some ups and some downs but love the way the country has welcomed me, I love it!

    258efeb92180cee7be755fcda0b0f3c4.jpg

    But have to raise my middle finger to those few that said I wouldn’t make it, some out of love and some out of reality. There is a lot more to come and the last almost 2 years in Meherchand in our own stand alone Salon has proven that our skill and Know how works just the way we said it would.

    2018 we are planning some really incredible things and can’t wait to share them with you!

     

    Thanks to all who doubted me, it is a real motivator

    It might be a cool haircut, but not on you

    You may be one of those people who searches on line for the prefect next look and you finally find it and no one on planet earth is going to convince you its not right because you want it!

    This is who we are

    Was asked today who is our target market and it got me thinking…. immediate thoughts were not people who would ask “who is your target market” lol that too in a packed salon to ask “Who comes here” 😶

    Via @Arsenic

     

    So thought we should spell it out for you, we do hair, we do beautiful sexy AF hair, that is not driven on anything other than giving you a beautiful looking head 🙊

    We are not sorry for how we communicate, it’s the way we talk, it’s real. If you think by you telling us who you are is going to make us do a better job or give you more attention I guess you should possibly not choose us, if you want awesome hair then there is really only one option.

    How much hair fall is normal

    You all worry like hell, in fact every single time you see one strand of hair you think you are going bald, yes you do don’t lie!

    a6d7e16a34d95bc3b52183c939a852a0

    Its perfectly normal to think about some things and its ok to do your research, science is constantly developing new ideas and medicine so it fairly possible that after we hit the publish button parts of this may be not true lol but highly unlikely ( just saying )

    To have some hair fall is completely normal and you can not do anything about it, its natures way.  Approx 90% of the follicles on your hair are active and are producing hair growth, whilst the other 10% are dying and the hair will fall out and a new hair will start to grow from that follicle. thats great I hear you saying but what does that mean, how much is abnormal and how much is too much? Well approx 100-150 hairs per day is in the spectrum or normal and you should not be concerned at all! Now because we know you and we know you like to be a little over the top and freak out constantly like you have nothing else in your life to worry about lets put it all into perspective.

    If you wash your hair every second day, a lot of the hair from day 2 will still be on your head, possible already fallen but stuck there so when you shampoo your hair or most likely when you apply conditioner it will appear in your hands. Now the conditioner is NOT causing this, it closes the cuticle so makes the hair smooth hence the hair that is already out but tangled amongst other hair will now slide out in your hand. Again this is NORMAL and 2 days of normal hair loss equals 150 times two = 300 hairs. Take that to washing every 3rd day = 450 hairs.

    Can you stop hair fall? NO not completely

    Is there a hair fall shampoo, yes and its marketing campaign is amazing!

    Is there a treatment you can do to make it not fall out, ummmmm no

    Hair fall in the above range is normal and not to be worried about, a good diet, a good haircare regime using a sulphate free shampoo and always conditioner and your off to a good start.

    Be thankful

    Its easy to get lost in day to day life and keep wishing your life away, I will be happy when this or that happens, then when it does there is already another hurdle you have placed before happiness is in your pocket. But imagine if you actually stopped and thought about things for a moment and thought of all the things wonderful that you already have in your life?

    c0bb42f7eb1370495cfc49ccc2beca49.jpg

    At some stage of your life, these things or situation you are in are the exact things you prayed would happen, they did happen, this is your life! Be thankful for them, be thankful for the people who are in your life and live the life you are born to live! Easier said than done sometimes but a little mind training and effort you will see that your life is blessed, situations pass and if its a bad time these too are a blessing and you will get through it.

     

    Thank you for everyone that has been supportive, challenged us, pushed us, ignored us, said no to us, walked past us or been there the entire journey. If it wasn’t for each of you we would not be the people we are so thank you !

     

     

     

     

    How to get the perfect hand job

    Recent Studies revealed that if


    Ok your dirty little monkey, glad you opened this because it’s nothing to do with what you thought it did!

    Many hands make light work, or it’s not my job! Well you have to imagine what type of world we would live in if we didn’t wait for the person who was meant to do xyz and of capable we did it ourselves?! Wow how incredibly out of the box is that concept, not really actually. Try it at work today and pick up after yourself, do something that is not your job to do.

    How to find love

    We like to think we know a lot about, well most things but we don’t like to keep to ourselves after all if we did that then you wouldn’t know how much we know right? Put your tea down Shirley, listen up!

    We know you have been looking for that sweet spot, that one little place that’s going to bring you more happiness than any other! It’s actually not hard to find once you know about it, you may kick yourself you didn’t know earlier but well your reading this so you found us. You don’t have to wait to get comfortable with us to tell us how to reach that sweet spot because we will actually ask lots of question to make sure we get it right the first time!

    Concealer won’t hide your BS

    We all have one of those friends or seen a commercial that claims if you use a certain product or use their product your life will be complete. We are the best, this product is unique etc etc 💤


    Or your friend has verbal diarrhoea that clearly doesn’t remember the stories they told you 3 min back that contradicts the current story.

    Well we don’t tell you 💩 in fact we have been told we are too honest, we spend a lot of time writing this nonsense to make sure you get it. No your life won’t be complete if you come to us, you will have better hair for sure, may or may not be able to fix a total mess but we will give you a plan too!

    Something isn’t adding up

    You can be searching on Tinder or looking for a hair salon chances are one or both have oversold themselves. Could be the Brad Pitt profile picture that gave it away or the fact that the headline said “ Best Deals”


    Then when you’re sitting in a dodgy bar ordering watered down local wine wondering how you got there or walking out of the salon with Hair more fried than a KFC family pack. It’s only when things go wrong we all can look back and say you must have been stupid to believe it in the first place.

    Do your research, check on line, check off line and understand if it’s too good to be true, chances are it’s not real.

    When your hair is your outfit

    Wear it with pride they said, long hair is sexy they said, short hair is not feminine they said.


    What rubbish, they also didn’t tell you if you’re sitting on the potty your hair will end up falling in it, or when you do a hair flip it will possible suffocate the person behind you in the que did they.

    Long hair can be sexy, short hair can be sexy it all depends on how you wear it and with your wearing it with the right attitude. You don’t have to fit in to look beautiful or sexy it’s an attitude and the way you carry yourself.

    Why you need to choose the right Salon

    Let’s be honest, life is about managing expectations from the moment you can remember what you think should happen and what actually happened is usually very different. Just think, a night out recently did it go the way you intended? Does your partner show you the same attention or affection? You go to the gym for a few months and expect to be ready for a marathon? It’s all relevant.


    Now heading to the salon is not so different, you may be going because you look like a drowned rat, the color may need freshening up or you may be just a little flat and need a pick me up.  Whatever the reason it’s important that the hairdresser you go to can understand what it is you need. Will you know? Possibly not and that’s why a well trained hairstylist is part hairstylist and part therapist.

    I think it’s important to know that it’s normal to have expectations and whilst some are achievable done are so far fetched as those luxury Instagram Travel posts.
    Visit us and let us burst your bubble but let you leave with hot hair you love!

    Don’t bite off the hand that feeds you

    Too many times we get a good thing and we don’t appreciate it, or do when it’s too late, after it’s gone!


    We push it, want more, expect more and take for granted that thing will always be there. Well guess what it won’t be! Could be you forget who picks up after you until they stop doing it, your loved one who stops kissing you goodbye or your husband who never says thanks. The list is endless! Appreciate people, situations, diversity and opinion you only get one life!

    If you’re wondering how this relates to hair, we get a lot of people who do every chemical treatment known to mankind done, wait till their hair is past repair then expect somewhat a miracle. Yes we are here and at times the last line of defence but you have to ask yourself, do you really need that service? Is it really worth the damage it may do? Do the pro’s outweigh the con’s and if they do they by all means go ahead. Your hair is made up of dead keratin and once the damage is done and you have crossed the line, there is not a lot that can be done other than cutting off the most damaged hair. Sure you want to keep it long possibly but if it looks like a wet rag, taking some off is the only option.

    We may just well be the only hair salon in India that will not do something if it isn’t in your hair’s best interest no matter how much money you have or how many ways you ask, if it’s going to ruin your hair then then answer is no!

    Your Instagram is cool but you’re as basic as a Parle G biscuit

    How to get the perfect grey hair color!

    For guys it’s a very common request, George Clooney’s grey hair and from the ladies it’s either just remove the black color I want to go natural or I want ash grey hair. So what the hell is the right info and what do you need to do?

    We sat Rod down handed him a coffee and asked him.

    This is what he told us

    For guys the reality is if you want the color like George Clooney you have to wait, pray and see if it happens naturally coloring it like this won’t happen ever! You can get an overall grey but will be every strand of hair the same color not a natural effect.

    For the girls, firstly you can not use a special product and remove the coloured hair from your head, leaving it natural again once it’s coloured it’s coloured. Only solution is bleaching it however that doesn’t make it natural it only makes it all bleached and besides that may not get the desired level if it’s got multiple layers of color.

    Want coloured ash grey hair? This can be done but takes time & money to do it right and maintain it. If your hair has color in it, you will struggle to remove it and you may end up with a brassy result that needs more work to remove but possible.

    When your mouth says lead singer but your hair says Chartered Accountant 

    Let’s be honest most guys are lazy and we are fantastic at lip service but lack a lot on the follow through.


    It’s like you tell everyone you take no prisoners and your the fizz but reality is your more fizzle and most likely sit at home on a Friday doing crosswords than out painting the town red ( although good for you If your a crossword buff 🙊 )

    It’s a problem when your haircut says Chartered Accountant but your mouth says lead singer in a rock band 😳. There are more than two options, because you think that there is either a side part or an undercut is the first of your woes, then you have those of who can’t decide end up doing both and shaving a line to cover all bases.

    From Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mumbai the finalists are now selected. There was vast variation in hair quality throughout the country but if I could offer everyone the same advice is regular trims every 6-8 weeks says Rod.

    Looking for a Men’s hairdresser? 

    There are options for almost everything and yet searching on line it can be like finding a needle in a haystack. The only upside being that us guys get our hair done every few weeks, but unless you are ready for a constant repair & fix you may never have the hair you deserve.


    If your looking for a salon that knows what they are doing and has the trained team to deliver then congrats you found us. We don’t do a little this and that, we specialise in hair!

    Hey little man it’s my hair! 

    Well can’t really say we are impartial when it comes to hair, we like different because well that’s what we do, we have seen all kinds of hair and a lot looks the same after some point. What does excite us is when someone is so sure of who they are that no matter what someone will say they will do whatever they want.


    It’s true some guys like to push there opinion on some woman and tell them what they like, as if it’s there right or something not sure. We say it’s your body do whatever makes you happy, if you want green hair then it’s green hair you must have, you want it short then cut it short.

    Life is far too short to be trying to keep everyone else happy when at the end of the day the only person that really matters is you, if you make you happy you can make others happy but you have to be happy first.

    10 times when getting it cheap is not the best idea 

    First of all we focus on cutting hair, not coupons and we spend all of our free time training on becoming better at what we do. It’s no secret that we all like a bargain in fact for some it’s a sport, a way of life. For some things you can afford to be frugal and some things you just can not.


    Now we are not saying be stupid or careless with your money because that would be silly, we are saying there is a time and place for everything.

    For example if your buying a certain product, same brand & model then you can call around and get various prices but if your buying a service or skill you can not compare prices ever!

    Let’s take a mens haircut which you could possible get for 30-40rp underneath the local tree 🌲 now you can spend this or if you had some extra cash you could end up spending 5-6,000rp with the difference being the end result, the finish, the ambience and the overall experience. Now if you’re buying Parle G biscuits and you buy them under a tree for 10rp or from a shop at 40rp then this makes no difference ( as long as storage and use by date is in order ) so this is a time you can bargain until you’re happy.

    A service based product varies so much from place to place and by service we don’t mean just simply a nice looking place, it’s about having the right skills set to be able to deliver the promised service. So this can hardly be a sit at home on the phone calling around to get the cheapest price before booking yourself in. If this is your way of looking for the place to go It is not the smartest way to find quality at all.

    Times you should not bargain

    • Doctor
    • Dentist
    • Plastic surgeon
    • Hairstylist 
    • Crematorium 
    • Buying medicine
    • Buying petrol
    • Defense attorney 
    • Laser hair removal
    • Tattoo parlour

    So if you want the best try searching for the best rather than searching discount and you may be surprised that instead of having to spend twice as much to get something done then you will get it done right the first time, saving you both time and money.

    If you’re bald we are sorry

    We serve blueberry pancakes

    Hump day is meant to be the hardest day of the week and once you get past it, it’s meant to get easier right?


    I don’t know about you all but honestly I just want to Netflix, chill and pancake my way through this one!

    If you’re having a crappy week come spend some time with us, no we don’t have pancakes, no we don’t have Netflix but we do have scissors and that could be fun 😜

    Sorry the headline is balls we do have awesome coffee not your instant crap. Awesome hair good music and coffee

    How many fingers do you use?

    The moment you wake up you’re texting your friends, boss etc you’re on Facebook busy tagging your friends in funny AF memes like no generation has ever before.


    It’s a fact that majority use two or 3 fingers only to text and can almost doing without looking. In the early 90’s workplaces around the world went into a frenzy with court cases of repetitive strain injury from a sudden influx of typing and now today typing is not only essential for work it is a form of communication for life.

    From ordering food on line, booking a cab, inviting friends over or biking a flight you will surely be typing.

    Physiotherapist’s recommended you use a soft round item to squeeze to elevate the muscle tension or build up or lactic acid.

    Now you have a purpose to squeeze those bundles of fun

    Fresh AF

    There is so much going on in all our lives it’s honestly hard to keep up, boo sits down for a coffee date and barely gets eye contact looking at each other’s phones. We want to be connected so 1 hour off line causes some to get anxious. Work demands a 22 hour day as no one gives a toss about what is realistic, we all have an agenda, we all have selfish self serving addictions.

    Fig & Maple

    Yet no matter what we always make Sundays our day, sure there may be a bit of work thrown in but it’s always about being our day.

    What habits are you feeding are they positive or negative?

    Why choosing a salon that’s connected and active online is important 

    Everyone has their own thoughts with social media or being active on it and why or if it’s even important. We think it’s one of the main key aspects you should all be looking for in your salon because I guess it only makes sense if your after new, fresh and current that that are new fresh and current.  If they are a little slow online we can only imagine what could happen on one of their chairs 🙊

    So I guess the thing you need to ask yourself is, the salon you choose is it current or still living in the old school ways?

    If you’re after the best in hair then it only makes sense that is by people who are up to date with the current, check out which salon is online and which ones are not then get yourself into the current one.
    See you soon 😜

    What is your hair saying about you?

    It’s not a new theory in fact it’s the same as your wardrobe, dress for success they said but no one made a fuss about your hair. In fact most people neglect to put the same effort into their hair as they do their clothes.


    When you are making such an effort to send all the right signals with beautifully fitted clothes, the right colors, the perfect shoes, most up to date look yet by the time you get to your hair it’s almost like you ran out of time & money or at the very least stop bothering to see it through.

    When your dressing head to toe remember the stuff on your head! It’s the one thing that you wear daily and can’t quickly change in the washroom of the club. Get hair that suits you, says what you want it to say and that works for you.

    A home like Tarzan

    Work and personal life has always been a struggle and we read all about balance but it’s about blurring the lines more than balancing we think. If you love what you do then it doesn’t feel like work right?


    Now if it doesn’t feel like work and doesn’t look like work,chances are it will be the most positive space to be in ever!

    This is how your home/  office should be to produce extra oxygen on turn filling up your space with “brain juice” that inspires and relaxes!

    Simple on purpose 

    Uncluttered and not overdone has more impact than trying to do a little this and that, at least we believe that.


    Many people end up with a miss match of this and that and before you know it, your hair is a dogs breakfast. Remember the one easy fact, the more you do, the more it looks like you have done aka the more it can look forced.

    We believe in keeping it simple.

    Using fruit and vegetables the right way 

    It’s not uncommon for us to be asked which food we should eat to make your hair grow faster, look healthier, shine etc etc and some so called experts will give you the most random new ” power fruit ” to make you rush off and buy it by the kilo.


    The reality behind healthy hair is a balanced diet with the right amount of each food group. Sounds too easy though so it mustn’t be totally accurate there must be something else. Nope it’s really that simple, if your skipping one of the food groups because your a vegetarian then dose up of the loss with other fruits or vegetables 🥒 or nuts from the other groups!

    Healthy hair can not be bought it happens when you are conscious about it, visit the salon frequently and don’t do things that endanger your hair health!

    Looking for free hair advice

    Information is easy to get but getting the right advice is not always the easiest especially now more than ever with brands so eager to dominate.

Now advice is free and always will be so don’t be scared to ask, consultations are something easy that you can do obligation free and no cost. A great way to see if you’re in safe hands with your hair right?

    It’s only about you and your color

    Imagine you want your color done, maybe not pink but maybe also but just imagine your looking for a place to get it done. You want the best, you want a salon that is brilliant at colouring hair right?


    You’re not looking for a one stop solution are you?

    I think not, well we ONLY do hair, so it’s kind of obvious that when you are only doing one thing that one thing should be the best and that’s what we are about. It’s a choice as a brand that we made, we wanted to be known for being the best so that’s what we are!

    If you are searching for a brilliant hair color then pick up the phone and get yourself in!

    Some hair facts 

    With information so accessible it’s still a global mystery who some people still think some of these things work. We’re going to focus on washing your hair, rather than bombard you with all the right information in one go ok!


    Some people say the more you wash it the more it falls out?

    Absolutely false, nonsense and completely opposite in fact if you don’t wash your hair/scalp enough it can cause hair loss. 100% safe to shampoo daily.

    I use an anti dandruff shampoo and if I try to stop using it my scalp becomes so dry why?

    Easy, most so called dandruff shampoo is so full of harsh detergents that your scalp is over cleansed, removed from everything so the moment you stop and change shampoo your body which has been working faster to produce oil to combat the drying effects from the shampoo not almost overnight the dryness returns.  Kind of like a natural marketing trick to keep you hooked. Stop using it and for 2 weeks wash it daily and it will get better and your body will Adjust.

    Natural oils good or bad?

    Ok so this one we have heard it all, your body produces oil, sebum oil ( it’s not coconut or almond oil not olive oil ) now this is for no other reason than to create the right ph on your scalp,the perfect combination of oil ( sebaceous oil ) and water (perspiration). Is it good to have overly oily hair? NO Should you not wash it to get the oils to protect the hair? NO. The scalp needs daily shampooing especially in areas the temperature doesn’t go below 25-30 almost all year.

    Oil attracts dust and dirt and it gets stuck to it, then the heat it becomes bacteria and now you have a itchy scalp. Most people who get an itchy scalp could be cured if they washed daily with the right shampoo but yet happy to keep scratching because either their mum or a blogger decided to promote their mothers ideas vs actual facts.

    If you want a healthy scalp you need to know what is myth and what is real!

Maybe we should just simply say your hair that big makes you look fat or your hair looks aweful but we decided not too name names.

    When your hair looks like burnt toast

    Sometimes seeing a hair promotion or a sale at your favourite clothing store you end up buying something you simply don’t need, you’re human after all and 50% off just sounds so good. It’s been a hard week and somehow made you feel better right?

    Wrong!

    Hair is not a skirt you won’t wear and can hang it up safely and no think about again until you clean out your wardrobe, you will wake up one morning and realise you should not have done what you have done and most likely didn’t need to do it either!


    What can you do after it’s ruined? Well not a lot but depending on how bad it is, there are treatments which help for sure but the only real way to remove split ends is by cutting them off and that is a fact!

    Trust the one that says no, you can not push or sell services in a hair salon as much as you can push and sell drugs in a hospital. If you need it then it’s there, if you don’t you don’t. Sometimes it may be what you think you want but in fact be the worst thing you could do.

    Trust professional salons only

    What happens on holidays stays on holidays 

    So you jumped through all the hoops, visa’s, tickets accommodation, time off work, getting the house and car sorted etc etc now it’s time to pack. By this point you could not be bothered but obviously you need to or you will be wearing the clothes your wearing the entire time or have to deal with the climate change and suffer!


    Your hair should only need the basics and if your on holiday then your hair should look like it and you shouldn’t be searching salons to be getting your blow out, your on holidays! So here are the essentials you need to pack

    • Shampoo & conditioner
    • Wide tooth comb
    • Leave in serum
    • Hair scrunchie and hair elastics.
    • Dry shampoo if your camping
    • Travel hairdryer.

    Now all your wet products put the lids on and tape the lids closed. Place in a zip lock bag then inside a plastic bag and tie it up, no one wants that all over your clothes.

    Remember what happens in a different zip code stays in that zip code, enjoy!

    When you had a full head of hair

    We all have selected memories and when we are 3-4 whatever our hair looks like we will hold onto that forever and tell people that’s what our hair is, be it black, curly, blonde or thick you will always have this hair as your baseline.


    Sorry but this is not an indication of your hair, up too 14-18yrs old your hair is still changing however after that would possibly be more realistic than early. Some ( a large portion ) of children are born with thin hair, which will thicken up over the first 12-18 months it may start out curly and shortly after its cut go straight this is normal.

    So sitting in the chair when your 40 saying I don’t know what happened I used to have curly hair ( when you were 3 ) is not a realistic comment.

    Texture, density & color changes over time this is normal and is from many factors and 99.9% are out of your control.

    Positive life

    We are as much to blame for getting down to talking about work we thought it good to talk about goals and life. From all the people we have met, all the famous people, successful people, beautiful humans it’s clear that the people who stand out have one thing in common!


    Belief in themselves, after all if you don’t believe in you who will.  Everyone on the planet is born with the same things, it’s what you do with it and what outlook on life you have that defines you.

    How to grow out your black hair color

    Bring the most commonly used colors, black or even dark brown is possibly the hardest to get out of your hair. If you have white hair the variation between the two colors makes the contrast even more difficult to hide or disguise.

    To go cold turkey and simply not color it and let it grow out will not only leave you looking like your 10-15 years older than you are so that’s simply not an option unless you plan on moving to a remote location for the next 6-12 months.


    Here is how you do it, we call it the reverse fade in and it makes the transition east and liveable so relax there is help.

    Firstly you need to understand that a blanket ( total ) coverage needs to be Brocken up and you need to start getting the new white hair less covered, a little translucent so the contrast is not as much therefore freeing you up with time, saving you money and most of all not having to color your hair every 10-12 days!

    For the next 3-4 colors they will be done 1/2 shade lighter and mixed slightly different so you don’t get a blanket coverage, it will mask but not cover like 85-90%.

    After your 4th touch up we add highlights to the ends to break it up to try and remove the solidness of it. Then take the base color 2 shades lighter, this is when people will see the results. We keep doing this until the lighter growth is more than the darkness then remove some length and boom your lighter, more natural and have more freedom and not stuck into getting touch ups every 10 days unless it’s at the club on a Friday night 😝

    Flasher on the loose

    Gravity has set in and your hair is 100% white but you still want to have some fun with your hair?


    Maybe it’s time for a little peek a boo color that can show people your personality rather than let them think you sit at home playing solitaire all day.

    Color protection

    It came & went in a few short puffs


    Well there is hope and no it’s not medication it’s simply a change of approach to how your looking after it.

    The basics have never been more important so here goes one more time!

    • Sulfate free shampoo, several brands have them and they bubble less but maintain color better by not stripping it.
    • Always condition, yes fine thick thin or massive hair. Condition.
    • Don’t use ANY OIL! yes none! It coats the hair, dehydrates and will pull color out.
    • Use a leave in moisturiser if your hair is dry or damaged.
    • Don’t over do it, if the ends don’t need color don’t do it! Global color is a once every 4-5 months thing if that!
    • Rebonding is terrible for your hair condition don’t do it.

    Anything else? Always pack protection 😝

    Your words say it but your actions don’t 

    You know I’m right but when it comes to things like New Year’s Eve typically we all have the best expectations for the following year and promise ourselves to do XYZ yet several weeks or months later it’s the same old shit and nothing has changed. You’re sleeping past the alarm, skipping gym, work home balance has gone for a toss and you are no closer to that overseas trip than you were 12 months ago. You promised yourself so much yet it’s the same thing, why?


    Well humans are lazy 👽 it’s a fact and we can find exudes for almost anything and pass the blame to almost anyone because we are creative 😂

    Your hair needs Maintainence, every 6-8 weeks regardless of the length it needs trim or refreshing the color. If you plan it ahead of time chances are you will forget too even after a reminder call. Put it into your dairy, ever 6 weeks regardless.

    You don’t appreciate most things until the day you can’t have them anymore, or they leave. Do t wait and think about it, plan it

    How to get Independent hair

    Well firstly Happy Independence day, we thought about it and pondered what to talk about then we thought no one really does everything themselves we all rely on someone else for something don’t we? You’re sitting in the ( what you call ) parlor getting your hair burnt to a crisp, with your hair smoking from the torture of inexperience yet you feel your in control.


    Sadly your not, the fact that you think you are is a sign your hair will eventually and soon I suspect either self combust or simple fall off your head who knows.

    Try learning true independence with your hair as far as blow drying it will make your life better and your hair will thank you.

    Stop being lazy, it’s easy sure but it is ruining your hair

    You are using your shampoo wrong, read this and change your life! 

    So with a headline like that you are all going to have a fairly large expectation of the next few paragraphs which makes us a little nervous. We will try to make this life changing and sure that you’re not as dumb as we were told, well we 🙏🏻


    You grew up with certain Habbits and no matter how many times companies will print it, you still don’t read it!

    • Wet hair and then squeeze out excessive moisture.
    • Empty a small amount of shampoo in your hand.
    • Work the shampoo onto both hands.
    • Massage it into yours scalp and then hair.
    • Massage for approx 1-1.5 min
    • Rinse well and repeat
    • Remove excessive moisture.
    • Apply amount of conditioner in your palm,work it into both hands.
    • Apply on ends working it up to mid lengths.

    Now that’s not hard is it?

    What pollution is doing to your hair & scalp? 

    If you live in India chances are it does for several reasons, could be the pollution, all the treatments or services you are doing that you don’t need or it could be a build up of pollutants from the water.


    Because of the population there is possibly always going to be s pollution issue, unless we all change our garbage Habbits it will take several lifetimes ( do your bit to recycle and compost and not litter before you complain about it )

    But we are here to talk about hair so let’s, we see a lot of people doing this or that service simply because it’s on offer or told to them they need it when they actually know they don’t. Not sure why but they just go for it thinking, what harm could it do!

    Too much of anything is not good! If you’re getting color for example, putting it through the ends every few weeks is a sure way to end up long term with hair that’s frizzy, dehydrated and split. Then once it is in bad shape you do a keratin treatment in the hope that will make it shinny and smooth.

    Now separately they both are true but when you do them both, one to fix what the other has done ( due to improper application ) then you are asking for problems and there will only be one solution…… ✂

    So how can you make sure your hair stays healthy and not need constant SOS every 6 months?

    • Only color regrowth, the ends can be 1-1.5 shades lighter than roots this actually looks natural.
    • Don’t do rebonding if you have any color in your hair
    • Only do keratin if you need it, it is not going to add moisture it relaxes the internal structure of your hair, giving you 30% less frizz and curl.
    • Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks
    • Use a SLS & SLES free shampoo daily followed by a conditioner.
    • Do not apply oil, ever. This build up sure it makes it shinny but dehydrates the hair
    • When blowdrying don’t over heat the hair, use heat protection products and only iron lightly
    • Protein or moisture treatments after every color to balance out the moisture.

    If you feel the water quality is causing your hair damage or just want to be sure, rinse your hair in filtered water prior to getting out of the shower.

    Hair fall solution

    With every change of season we all experience an increase of hair fall, it’s normal, you can expect 50-150 hairs falling out per day, yes per day!


    Now no matter who you are, you are already saying omg I loose so much more than that, chances are you’re not chances are you have never physically sat and counted them nor you ever will! With 90% of the hair on your head in the growing stage and 10% in the resting stage, the 10% will eventually fall out and be replaced with new hair growth.

    Now several other factors begore closing this tab and continuing your searches!

    1. If you wash your hair every 2-3 days the chances of those 50-150 hair being gone are slim the last 2-3 days of loose hair will come loose when you shampoo so chill it’s not more, the hair has simply got stuck there.
    2. Vitamins and diet, if you eat right and sleep tight there is no need to do anything else. Vitamins if you’re lacking in one area.
    3. Treatments work? You MAY  experience in the vacinity of 1-3% difference but hardly.  Remember it’s seasonally excelerated.

    Get the facts and don’t be sucked into buying treatments or products that claim can give you a full head of hair, they don’t work!

    So you are a social media Influencer? Surprise it’s not a job title GIRL! 

    Seems like the word “influencer” is the new buzz word everyone wants to add to their bio like it’s going to somehow give them the ability to be a shape shifter or an ability to change people’s buying Habbits.

    Being labelled this is not your role it’s others role to label you and not your bff sitting at home watching re runs of 90’s sitcoms tagging you in memes 5 times per hour saying OMG I Iove your feed, girl great click!


    You’re a person with an Instagram account, its completely different if a company or a respected publication or brand labels you, but sorry to be the bearer of bad news adding it on your bio because you want it is like adding “Millionare” because one day you want to be rich.

    Sadly you sit in the back of the car, even shouting at the top of your lungs for the driver to change lanes, he doesn’t listen to you so how on earth could you influence others. If you post some nice pictures ( or you call clicks) that’s great, you also write in your posts that ” sorry I haven’t posted in a while, been super busy” sweetheart no one is even bothered. We are surprised that there are some that buy followers and likes and think that by doing this in some strange way will make them famous or successful, when there is nothing more than surface face which lasts about 3-7 seconds after someone stumbles on your profile then realises that that ” Click” you posted looking hideous has thousand likes and the link in your bio is a dead end.

     

    Try being the best at whatever you are doing, rather than trying to scam success, chances are if its meant to be you will become famous at what you actually do, unless thats nothing then your in trouble!

    This is not aimed at one person this is based on so many adding this word into their Bio.

    Now the reason why I bring up sushi 🍣 cat 🐱 is simply to say no matter what pretty little picture you have saved from trolling on line, no matter how many of your Gucci handbag lovers say ” Oh my god you totally should”  do this or that with your hair, if we say you should not then the answer as much as you don’t want to hear it…. you must listen!


    Visit us for the first second and third opinion!

    Why your color will wash out, the facts

    You invest time and money on your hair so you must maintain it between salon visits to make sure it doesn’t wash out!

    What are the causes of color fade and how can you prevent having a faded washed out color!

    There are two basic principles why your color will fade,

    1. Condition
    2. Home hair care

    Now they both have various factors to consider so here goes.

    Condition

    Could be you have tried to do something to your hair that it simply can’t take or should never have been done and now it’s damaged beyond repair. Once the cuticle is stripped from the hair there is no way to fix it other than scissors, certainly most color won’t hold and wash out super fast.

    It could be you have rebonded over and over again and then coloured which was the last chemical your hair could take, could be your doing global color over and over again which is drying the hair out! Global color is not needed every time in fact not even recommended, should be ONLY done when you are changing the color.

    Hair care 

    What you do with it once you leave the salon will either keep the color the way it is meant to be or wash it out quicker than it took to get it done. Shampoo can completely wash out your color if it is not for your hair, you need a sulfate free shampoo and you must be using conditioner every time as this closes the cuticle hence protecting the color molecule from being exposed to the environment and fading.

    If your hair is suitable a leave in serum and/or a leave in conditioner may also be needed.

    Overnight success 

    Something about reaching 200k followers on Facebook so I needed to share. After being hairdressing over 25 years, in 4 counties approx 50,000 heads of hair done directly by me, international celebrities, political leaders, Royal families, movie actors, television hosts, CEO’s of global companies, mums, dads and the occasional John Smith, 1350 posts on this site & another 300 on several others, countless “collaborations”, featured in magazines & television, hair for heads of state, prime ministers, Hollywood & Bollywood celebrities, billionaires and CEO’s of  global companies, several private charter trips for work, over 310 commercial  flights for work, a couple of private chartered flights for special clients, product endorsements, product training, seminars teaching  in many countries, countless hours on the backend doing whatever is needed, saying no to a crazy amount of things, saying yes to some whacky things that paid off, risking everything and coming to another country with nothing but a suitcase and a few hundred dollars. Meeting my soul mate and calling it home!


    200k+ and verified not bad for someone who never wanted to be active on Facebook! Another 100k on Instagram and verified 😜 Thanks Merrylin who 4 years ago told me I should 😍

    So yeah I guess you could say it has come easy, since I’m editing this on a Saturday night instead of heading out. Before you say someone else is lucky or has had it easy ask yourself and be honest if you do WHATEVER it takes and if the answer is yes then you need to start and stop pissing your life up against the wall!

    Thanks everyone who bothers to read this nonsense.

    It’s not going to cut it itself is it? 

    If you have just given up on trying because it’s just to plain hard, then it’s time to invest some time on finding the right hair salon for you and your hair. It’s like saying nothing fits you’re over it I’m not wearing clothes, you won’t I hope so you have to sort it out.


    Obviously you need to find a salon that is capable of doing what it is you are after, not just promises but actually can do it. Let’s be honest tho almost all may just say yes yes but at the end of it you’re left looking more like a oh no than a yes yes.

    Drop into any salon and have a talk about your hair, this does not cost money it’s free and you can get a good sense of the people while you are there.  Ask as many questions as possible and don’t book anything just take a card. Go home think then decide.

    Just because you have had a few bad experiences the right salon is out there don’t give up! 

    Bad Boy hair and what it looks like

    Not everyone wants to be in a band, have a sleeve full of tattoos or drive a Harley Davidson ( well the last one isn’t true, who doesn’t want to drive a Harley!) Getting bad boy hair is not as hard as you think if you just don’t over think it!


    Obviously the cut has to be done right but let’s just assume it was, styling bad boy hair is easy because it rely’s on typically one product, keep in mind guys don’t do complacated.

    Texture is important and blunt cuts won’t work, having texture in your hair is 80% done in the cut and the rest is done in choice of product. Typically a matte paste is the perfect product on dry hair, never blow dry only use your fingers when drying followed by tee spoon in your hand rubbed together then place firmly over the entire head then shake and run!

    Netflix & Chill

    I doubt many people actually have paytv any more or if they do they hardly watch it, it’s outdated and boring. The shift in the consumer pattern was so fast in reality that it has changed the way we do almost everything now.


    Doesn’t matter what your talking about the spin off from the shift impacts everyone. Whilst you don’t have a paytv subscription and only watch Netflix and have Apple TV 📺 you most likely don’t have to put up with those stupid Tv commercials anymore right?

    So how do those companies sell there products to you now?!

    How do we stay informed with News & Current affairs? Most people filter out who they want to stay connected with on social media and are able to still main an up to the minute connect with the ones they are interested in. The quality of content that your exposed too just took a sharp right and is not going back it’s only going to get better!

    NETFLIX & CHILL? We say yes please!

    Looking for head in all the wrong places

    If you have been one of those people that think that getting your contouring game to level 10 whilst still ignoring your circa 2000 hair that has a bigger regrowth that the Manhattan bridge span, time to keep reading!


    So much attention is put on getting that new shade of red lip gloss, the one that is slightly different from last season, this one is like a tiny more purple red, not too much but so slightly and will change your life! Omg order it now! If you buy that one you so need the three which are all almost exactly the same, but it’s cheaper to buy them all in one purchase so you have to right?

    I guess it will make your look complete because all those youtubers tell you almost every post it will do I should. 

    Meanwhile the last time your hair was giving this level of attention was when you were 6 months old and your mum used to brush it after a bath.

    Wake up! 

    Ditch the new makeup purchase and get your hair sorted out! It has a bigger surface area than your lips! Hair first lips second

    We talk about them but don’t do them

    Omg so what all do you do?


    We are what’s called a Hair Salon, we do hair cuts, blow dry’s, color, keratin and because we are not a ” everything under one roof” saloon, parlour or what ever you want to call it we are bloody brilliant at what we do!

    Do one thing and do it perfectly

    Hair makeover

    You would have almost done it, gone for something new something fresh but you just don’t know what it would look like right?


    Chances are that if you have ever wanted to do something dramatic something has stopped you unless you are super convinced either in yourself or by your hairstylist.

    We believe that it’s not about selling a style, it’s not about pushing our opinion, it’s about discussing options and eliminating options and finding out what it is that not only suits you but you can manage yourself. It’s one thing to want to look like xyz but your hair will never do it when you get home and you’re alone trying to get ready to go out.

    We believe that a haircut has to feel right for you as well as suit you do it takes a lot of discussion to find out and it’s not just about cutting the hair, even after it is cut we need to make sure you know how to manage it daily.

    So if you’re not getting this then it’s about time you visited us! 

    Hanging with your crew, it’s Friday

    We are all guilty of being ” connected ” there was a moment in time when you could switch off from work and life but now there is not even a moment when you can disconnect. Good or bad like it or hate it, it’s the way business & life is. Doesn’t matter if it’s what’s app, Instagram, Facebook or your simply searching for information we use mobile devices more than any other device.


    One thing we can all do a little bit more of us eye contact vs screen contact.  Stay connected to who you want but just remember there is real life happening right in front of you now!

    5 butter naan 1 full plate baal ke saath table no. 5 pe lagao!!

    When it takes as long to get breakfast as it does to grow your hair to the floor!


    Even the dog has had enough and decided to sleep through this.

    Imagine if you did everything you thought about in the same day, like literally idea’s to problems, investments made, had those discussions and the list goes on and on.  Life would literally be changing in front of you wouldn’t it?

    The problem we all would be thinking right about now is that we don’t have time between work, travelling to and from work then plus family we are already in the negative with time everyday.  The reality is that you don’t make time, right you have heard that before I guess, well let’s just put things into perspective, this article was written at 2 traffic lights waiting for them to turn green!

    It’s your choice if you want to get the most out of your life or if you want to make it all about excuses and not live to your full potential.

    Thanks Jason for the translation

    Thin crust please

    Fridays call for a night out and take away!


    Don’t know about you all but this week has been a long one and we can’t wait till next month, the month of long weekends!

    If it’s Pizza that will get you through it then pls order now OR get a fresh haircut.

    How to choose the right cut for your face shape 

    You have all heard the term, you probably have a perception of what face shape you have but is it accurate is it?


    Sometimes it’s better to seek professional opinion to make sure your getting it right, we all think we are doctors diagnosing our medical issues on webmd.com yet we really have no clue. If we took what we read as gospel we would all be next this time next week.

    Search for the best, make an appointment and get yourself a consultation, it’s free after all.

    So you want to be a Merman

    You go to the gym, your wardrobe is on fleek, your social and you have a great job but something is missing.


    You want to stand out, like literally even in a group of 50 people you want all eyes on you?

    Maybe Merman hair is what you need in your life?!

    Are you Head or body person

    Are you someone to first look at the head or the body?


    Chances are if you’re human it’s the head, unless your a creep I guess.

    So that being said then isn’t it important that you have the best looking headin town? Or at least the best looking head possible.
    Come see us soon!

    To plug or not to plug

    With technology being what it is there is always advances in medicine, beauty etc however some things just haven’t reached the point where it looks 100% natural.


    Saying that I must say I have seen a few people who have travelled to the far ends of the planet and the workmanship in there transplants is amazing! Sure your hairstylist may be able to tell but no one else can.

    Conclusion 

    If you are thinking about doing it, research it until you are convinced you have found the right person to do it, it is permanent!

    If your in the middle and haven’t made up your mind then maybe it’s not for you and shave it off after all most guys can get away with that!

    Winner mind chatter

    Funny that some people judge others, not really in fact I guess it’s normal. No one knows the reality, no one knows your journey except you, know that but also understand that’s the same with everyone else so we all should not be too fast to draw a conclusion!


    There is no such thing as an overnight success, it’s tough, life is tough but you can’t change that And no amount of stressing about it is going to make it easier!

    You and I get one life, it’s 24 hours in everyday, 7 days in a week and we all have creative minds when it comes to finding excuses but maybe not so much creativity when it comes to finding a way to fit extra things into your life.

    I’m personally shocked after a recent trip that the mass, literally expect life to be handed to them, be it the government or society because they deserve it, after all they are victims. What a load of rubbish. I know for us, we work 7 days a week and at times till 1-2am starting again the following day at 8. We love it!

    I guess people are just different and that’s the beauty of the world, some people are successful no matter what and others survive by the skin of there neck.

    To be the best at anything or even the best version of yourself you must fill yourself up constantly, that comes from filling up the 24 hours in every day with things that help you grow. Don’t try to push people down, no matter who it is, in fact lift up as many as you can along the way. The more people you help grow, the more friends you have at the top.

    Don’t let one little set back pull you down, I don’t and never will. You can throw anything at me but I will always win, always!

    That should be your mind chatter! 

    Grow a beard they said, the girls will love it they said

    Yes we did say grow a beard you twat, we just assumed you knew it needed maintaining not just grow it!

    Beards are not meant to worn like this!

    Maintain a good beard, lumberjack is cool, homeless look is not

    When you wanted highlights but became a zebra

    Back in the 90’s way back there was a moment, a very very short space in time, you could even call it a speck. Ok a speck in time, maybe even a glitch in the universe it was that small. Striped highlighted were cool.

    They are not now!

    Stop getting your hair done at the Zoo and give us a call. 🤡

    Information error

    Unlikely our computers have this level of sarcasm, although it would be funny if they did!

    Earlier this week someone shared with us a hair disaster story ( which we really don’t need to go into (  although we will ) which made us think we humans are really stupid sometimes.


    Googling cheapest hair salon with package deals in Delhi, she found a salon that was so cheap she felt she had one the lotto, went in got the services done paid the crazy cheap price and left.

    Well she then got herself an Uber to our salon, Uber if your still living in the dark ages has to be the cheapest taxi service globally and that is a safe “cheap”! 

    Moral of the story?

    You get what you pay for, if it’s too good to be true, chances are it isn’t. 

    Your hair is like a pice of clothing you wear every single day, it’s fashion. Don’t trust people who only can claim it’s “cheap”.

    You asked for apples but you got eggs 

    Vegetarian or non vegetarian this happens to us all from time to time. You buy one thing but get something completely different. It’s frustrating, annoying, waste of time and just plain uff 😬


    Of if the biggest training issues in hairdressing around the world is just that, clients will come in with an image in there mind, hairdressers will ask a few questions, clients ( you ) will think why are you asking so many questions I want red how hard is that!?

    Because everyone has a different version of almost everything we the hairdressers have to ask loads of questions to make sure you get as close to the image in your mind as possible. As we can not open your mind up and see it, we have to ask leading questions and take our time to ensure we are on the same page. Problems occur when one or both parties are in a rush to get the process started or over when in fact you have to take the right amount of time.

    Invest the right amount of time then you will not regret it for the next 2-3 months or until your hair grows out!

    Hair tattoo facts

    If you thought the only choice for a hair tattoo was a pulse line at the side of your head or a pyramid at the back of your head, you have been living under a rock and possibly need to upgrade your 3G connection.


    Sure it’s not for everyone but if it is your thing, or at least thought about it maybe it’s time to have some fun.

    It lasts about 2 weeks or until it grows out, if the surface length is short then it disappears faster. The possibilities are endless and you can add color to it to create more drama or wow appeal!

    Yes we do it, it’s not excessively expensive however depends on design so best to drop in and have a chat about it.

    Is your hairstyle putting you in the wrong box?

    First impressions count, some people will sum you up in a few short seconds of meeting, others have the brain IQ to judge you from your “online” life so what is your hair doing for you?


    It could be holding back opportunities, meetings an invite for a wild night out or a job you have been dying for.  Don’t let your hair put you in a box! 

    To find out how your hair should be speaking come see us. 

    Yes we all noticed it’s a wig!

    We got to put it out there, recently we saw a TV ad with possibly the worst wig known to mankind. Sure the model maybe didn’t agree to go bright pink or maybe production thought they could pick up a perfect wig at the corner store who knows. 


    Moral of the story is

    Yes all colors are possible on your hair, if your hair condition allows. 

    No natural looking wigs rarely will be able to be fitted to everyone and certainly don’t allow for a last minute change holding on to MTV music video expectations. 

    Plan plan plan 

    Pastel colors can be done, they take time and effort to do and maintain. 

    If you want a bright color wig, get on line and check which one fits your budget and do your research. 

    5 ways to grown healthy hair you can start now. 

    How to grow your hair faster, thicker, stronger is possibly one of the most googled questions. 


    Well it’s fairly basic but so are some of you, we guess your thinking it’s food or some exotic fruit but here are the facts! 

    1. Hair is dead once it leave your scalp so FYI putting anything on it isn’t making it grow faster! If you pour water over a dead cat would it be able to drink it? No
    2. Regular trims (6-8weeks) doesn’t make it grow faster but reduces split ends hence reducing of length. 
    3. 8-10 hours of sleep a night. Yes some of you should have hair like Rupanzel right about now!
    4. Healthy diet! There are 5 food groups all nutritionists around the world know about them, it’s not a secret. Eat something from each group daily. Don’t over eat, don’t skip and don’t try to convince yourself you can cheat.  Healthy body healthy hair!
    5. Use good products, for f*%# sake just because they have a Marketing budget doesn’t mean it’s the best product! Do some research get the facts!

    DIY hair disasters 

    So your the type of person who crashes at your friends place, always leaves your wallet at home & always look for the cheaper way to get things done. 


    Now whilst we all hate you, because your constant cry poor nonsense and your constant buying of clothes, shoes and electronics ( yes we all noticed! ) you try mixing home remedies for your hair because you think it’s cheaper! 

    Well the biggest problem with trying to duplicate experience when it comes to hair color or hair care is that hair depth, density, strength and porosity varies dramatically from person to person and then vary from month to month. With that being said a “home remedy” or a DIY today may work, tomorrow may be a total disaster. A harmless Color that your told is “natural” makes even the most mild bleech react and turn your hair to straw! 

    I guess it’s only when things go terribly wrong, you realise that there may be more to this than your grandmothers remedies.  Before trying to do things yourself, always get professional advice from a professional salon. 

    An important fact to remember, the home remedies done 100 years ago were done on hair that was exposed to far less than it is today. Pollution, chemicals in water, chemicals in food and the list goes on.  It’s a complete different world today that we are exposed too than it was 20,30,50 years ago. 

    You think your only option is brown?

    You may have grown up eating meat and two veg type food ( boring and a little basic ) or in India Dhal & rice. That doesn’t mean that there are not more options out there, because there are endless possibilities. 

    Via @pinterest

    Just like your wardrobe, although obviously any hairdresser will typically lean towards black, hair color options are far greater that a base color and a few highlights. It’s your blank canvas that expresses who you are and your personality. 

    You don’t have to be outrageous or OTT it just has to be an extension of your personality. 

    Why wait, give your hair salon a call and give your hair some color! 

    What type of hot dog are you packing?

    It’s a topic that most guys have had, could be with themselves a friend or a partner but it’s happened for sure!


    Now just like these hot dogs, at the end of it all, for the sake of the argument they all taste the same. 

    Now if your wanting to get your score card up apart from learning how to use your tools it may be time for you to look at your reflection and working on becoming an Urban guy with a few changes to your hair care regime. 

    So guys if you think you could use a little help, in the later then give us a call 📱 01141010011

    7 ways to prevent frizz during monsoon 

    Yep the rains have started, some may say a little early but it doesn’t matter they are here and your hair is going to start looking like Simba from Lion King 🦁 if you’re not game ready. 


    There are a few things that can help we thought it best to share so you don’t end up looking like a crazy Freek!

    • Yes keratin can help, it’s not rebounding, it’s not a cure all but it does reduce frizz a lot if you have curly or frizzy hair it’s a great time to get it done now. 
    • Conditioner and we always say use it because it closes the cuticle and prevents moisture escaping or getting inside the hair and causing the frizz
    • A leave in serum, prevents moisture entering past the cuticle. 
    • Styling dust, whilst it’s designed to add volume by design soaks up moisture therefore helping prevent frizz
    • A light layer of hairspray regardless if you need it because this will help repel moisture. 
    • The right cut, it’s not a secret but if your hair is cut correctly for not only your face and lifestyle but also the texture. No matter what the situation it will survive.
    • Linseed treatments, we use Alfa Parf moisture to ensure the cuticle is closed tight and if it is, then less likely that frizz will happen. 

    Keep in mind hair doesn’t have to be poker straight to look neat, nor does the curl need to be controlled, it’s about taming and working with what you have so you can look good no matter what the weather. 

    Your daily dose of color 

    Sometimes in life you need to add an element of color!

    Image via Pinterest

    When we talk technically about a cut, be it the structure or the way it creates the right shape for your face shape it’s about creating a look that is multi dimensional. To do that we have to use depth and tone using color. 

    One of the most exciting and creative things that has happened in recent years is Neon colors ( yes they glow in the dark! ) Alfa Parf Milano, has a range of Neon colors that are amazing. Now before you say ” yeah I don’t think my boss would appreciate me coming in with glow in the dark hair” it’s doesn’t have to be a solid color. 

    What is fantastic about this type of color is that the lasting power is second to none, lasting months without fading issues. 

    Depending on your comfort levels and placement, it can be something that pops only when the hair moves or it can be as loud or creative as you like, basically a unicorn or a mermaid to a little hidden pop it’s up to you. 

    When the fish has a better color than you!

    No matter where you look you see color and it changes your perception of life when you see certain colors your mind reacts and feelings are born.  Blue skies create happy feelings, grey skies and you feel like curling up in bed all day. 


    With that in mind, hair has to be an extension of your personality and whilst the cut it the foundation of it the color is what brings it all together to create the feeling. 

    Doesn’t matter if your color goals are to be as loud as a My little pony doll or as subtle as playing a Led Zeplin song backwards it’s all possible. The only way you will get a color that not only matches your cut and face is if you have an in depth discussion with a professional and assess the options. 

    The naked truth about long AF hair

    Now I’m sure some blokes love a girl  that’s so long that if you forget the rope to tie up the stuff in the Ute you could use a few metres from her hair. But do girls really like hair that could easily double as a bum warmer?

    Now if you are a girl reading this, you would completely relate to removing the hair from you know where, hardly a nice task nor one we talk about. 

    Go to the gym, do squats expose your butt and cut your hair!

    Respect for all the times you had to dig deep and fish out the 100 odd hairs you loose every single day!✌🏻

    Finally a pill to grow hair back! 

    Scientists have discovered the cure for loosing our hair and a way to grow a full head of hair. It was last Friday a group of scientists in a small town approximately 15km outside Baldocia in northern Romania found the Gene that has been on the run since the dawn of time. 

    Exhausted the Gene said to the scientists “it was fun running at first, but to be honest once we saw everyone just shaving there head well it just didn’t seem like people were willing to play anymore” Left a little disgruntled and angry over everyone’s loss in attitude it feels like playing hide and seek with your Auntie who is meant to be looking after you while your mum and dad go out but she is too busy swiping on tinder, said one of the Genes. A murmer and chuckle from the back of the group saying it was encouraging that some people were rubbing fruit, oil and even pulped onions on there head, it was as if they thought this shit would work 😂

    Cornered and tired after centuries avoiding discovery the group of small genes with there over blown ego sat panting looking somewhat pale and exhausted. 


    Police asked them what they were looking forward to most, they all said that a good shower and sulfate free shampoo was the first thing they wanted. 

    Once we have more information we will share. 

    Sorry not sorry

    Was asked today who is our target market and it got me thinking…. immediate thoughts were not people who would ask “who is your target market” lol that too in a packed salon to ask “Who comes here” 😶

    Via @Arsenic

    So thought we should spell it out for you, we do hair, we do beautiful sexy AF hair, that is not driven on anything other than giving you a beautiful looking head 🙊

    We are not sorry for how we communicate, it’s the way we talk, it’s real. 

    Fresh never goes on Sale

    Ever wondered why some companies only sell on discount rather than quality?

    Always 10%-50% off or buy one get two etc etc


    You put on sale or discount fish on the second day!

    When your blonde hair looks yellow

    So you have lightened up your hair now you look like a canary?


    Lightening hair is NOT a DIY type of thing anyone should be trying, no matter how many YouTube video’s you watch everyone’s hair is completely different and it’s history unique. 

    Now when it comes to getting the exact tone your after it completely depends on the level your hair is at, you have yellow hair and you want it ash grey, well you have to go lighter first and the combinations are endless. 

    How do I keep it that color or will it fade?

    Depending on the history of your hair, current condition, home hair care when it fades or if it fades. A toner masks certain colors you want and enhances others so there is more than one answer. Use a sulfate free shampoo, always always condition and if needed a blonde balm or “purple shampoo” to keep blondes clean and yellow free. 

    Best way to make sure it’s the perfect tone is only visiting a professional salon!

    In all the models, people and fashion we have been part of the most beautiful woman we have ever seen do the least to mimic anyone other than just to make themselves happy!

    How to change your look without getting your haircut

    You have pulled out everything in your cupboard to find something different and your on fleek but your hair looks the same as it always does?!


    Nothing could get more boring than looking the same day in day out, week after week after week, year after year 😴

    It’s relatively easy to change someone’s look in a few minutes with just a change of mindset, a few options and maybe a few products. Here is a few ideas depending on where your hair is at to think about and try this weekend. 

    • If you are wearing it straight why not try curls? Beach waves are in and super easy to do!
    • The “Hun” half up half down perfect for summer or a quick change of look. 
    • High pony tail? 
    • Braided, if it’s long enough pull it down low and braid the ends then pull it out a little messy. 
    • Sleek it back smooth into a low pony tail, strong and sleek. All you need is a little gel and a hair tie. 
    • Bed hair, try s little dry shampoo if it needs washing upside down and a little flick up.  

    So there is really no excuses why your hair is the same all the time.  Sure getting it cut or coloured is an option also but these you can do yourself at home to give yourself a fresh look. 

    Flower garden out the back and a waterfall at the front yard

    Hairdressers can be a little OTT and some like to show you they can create multiple looks ( sometimes on the one head ), hold several conversations and answers SMS messages all at the same time. 


    Now while it’s inportant to have a garden out the back yard, it’s possibly  not that cool when it comes to your hair! 
    Before you think what the hell I can’t decide between several styles, why not do them all, please think twice then slap yourself or get a good friend too.

    Is this your brush?

    Chances are if your human you have either had a brush like this or known someone who has. You panic like hell and think your going bald faster than Donald Trumps approval rating!


    The reality is almost positively the opposite and it’s very rare reality that your loosing that much hair. It’s completely normal to loose 100-150 hairs per day ( we can hear you saying your loosing so much more than that) and if you clean your brush daily you will find it’s within those numbers if you have the time to count them.  

    The longer your hair, the more it will look like, so 10 hairs at 5cm long will look like less than 10 hairs at 35cm long ( kind of logical but hair loss creates fear factor and logic doesn’t play a part )

    Slightly more hair can fall out in the start of summer, change of season and also due to hormones. Can you stop it completely? Easy answer is no, can you stop leaves from falling from the trees? No

    Use a detergent free shampoo daily, always use a conditioner always and  don’t get stressed and end up thinking home remedies or treatments they don’t work, it’s completely normal to have a certain amount of hair loss. If you think it’s excessive drop in and see us. 

    Delhi’s cool kids

    We recently were shooting this editorial for Grazia India, with the cool kids of Delhi, the ones that are shaping the future who all have a unique style that sets them apart. 


    Not a lot to be done with the hair because they all look so cool but we did our bit and watched poolside while they casually hung out in front of the camera. 

    Would you buy a car without the wheels?

    Imagine you go shopping to buy a car, You would think it’s expected that tyres come with it no?


    Well some Salons ( most in India ) charge you for shampoo & conditioner as an extra, I guess for some it’s ok to not wash hair?

    If your getting a blow out to getting a color just heads up we do not charge you anything for it, it’s included because we know it needs to be done in order for us to perform our work so it goes without saying it’s included. 

    So next time you see a car with no wheels or a salon charging you for shampoo & conditioner laugh 😂 then give us a call. 

    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?

    You have long hair and want a change?

    Sure you may not be a rockstar with a hairdresser looking after your daily issues, your go to may be a top knot or a low pony and to be honest it’s getting a little boring!


    But you don’t want to cut it, you don’t want to layer it or cut a fringe so what’s left? You visit the salon and say ” don’t cut the length, I don’t wants bangs, I like the color make me look different. We are guessing the hairdresser probly thinks your crackers. 

    You may just need styling options, then in that case head in and discuss that with your stylist. If your serious about a change something either needs to be added or subtracted from what’s on your head, this may mean color, it may be some layering but something has to happen in order for there to be a change. 

    Often boredom has been building up for some time and you really have no clue how to get out of the rut so get some inspiration from social media using some hashtags and see if anything looks interesting and head on into the salon. 

    For hairdressers, it’s not about cutting it off, it’s about working out that image you have in your mind and delivering it, so lots of questions are needed to make sure we know we understood what’s going on inside your head. 

    Length wohi Rakho.. Papa marenge 

    Picture this you have grown your hair for the last decade and you have decided to get a change!


    You stroll into your salon and blurt out ” I want a change, don’t cut the length, I don’t want color, I like the curl, I don’t have much time and only have 200 rupees” !

    Now stop, re read the above and ask yourself if that is more of a scene from a comedy show or likely to happen? 

    It’s one thing to have a wish list, it’s another to be in denial, some things are just not realistic or even possible. You don’t have to spend a fortune on your hair, in fact often less than what you expect! 

    Btw this is what ” I want three layers looks like”!

    Get onto Pinterest or Instagram and get some inspiration and done in and have a discussion and let’s create a realistic plan. 

    Time to start talking head! 

    So today is a new day girls and yesterday was all about girl power because it was International woman’s day but today is a new day! A fresh start, a day to start thinking different. 


    We want you to invest the time and energy you put into your every expanding shoe collection into your hair, yes no more shoes only hair! Head to toe not toe too, then the conversation stops!

    Imagine if your hair had that attention for even a week?! Start pinning, start posting and get yourself a lust list for your hair!

    So you think you can dance 

    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 )!
