Tired of the same shit!

I don’t know about a lot of you, but don’t you find yourself bored out of your head from time to time, it normal right. Same people, same places, same conversations and the same challenges day in day out, like seriously is this life?

The say you become what or who you spend the most time around so if you stay in the rut, you end up becoming the rut, scary right?!

We are fed the same type of consumer hype on almost everything like buying a certain product is going to change a thing, a dream holiday or a car that will get you to your destination faster and better. Your boss is a dick, the people you interact with every day are 100% not the type of people that are going to lift you up, if anything you have constant thoughts of growing them in your morning coffee just to shut them up!

If this sounds like you then its time to get a fresh new cut or color, or go crazy and get both!

So its 2018, what has changed?

A lot of people put so much pressure on New Year celebrations or resolutions and its not even a week that has passed and yet fairly likely the same people have done not much different than they did in 2017.  Sure its great to have a kick ass party  and make all sorts of commitments for the New Year but you must have the conviction to carry it through, nothing is more demotivating than saying you will commit to something knowing full well that there is no way you can or will achieve it.

To be able to change your current situation you must be able to feel like a new person or at the very least feel like you are capable of change or developing yourself, your reflection may or may not change but its your perception of what you see that needs to change and be the best it possible can be. Believe it and achieve it, this is a fresh year and you do not have to wait another minute to have the life you want!

We are the best, they said

When you have searched and searched finally you found the salon, perfectly scripted quotes on Facebook, the staff were so confident it was scary. You make an appointment and explain what you want, your perfect color. The hairstylist keeps saying relax I got this! Then……..


It’s Monday morning you’re back at work searching for help hoping no one in the office will notice!

We fix overconfident hair and we won’t tell you to relax, we will tell you to keep your mouth shut!

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!

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

A girl is more worried about who you are and how you look more than what your packing. 🌭

You got your hair advice from the fruit guy?

Recently we heard of a woman who went to get a skin treatment from a dermatologist ( someone who studied skin ) and came out with the most obnoxiously wrong advice for her hair that involved home remedies and things that would send her hair for a complete toss! 


Sure the advice given possibly had the best intentions but wrong on every way. The problem here is it’s like asking a guy who sells fruit how to cook a steak, it’s not his job although he may suprise us all and know. He may even give you some home remedies to fight off a cold or give you a complete juice detox to cure diebeties or even cancer but let’s be honest it’s unlikely. 

If your serious about your hair, go to a professional salon, not someone who really isn’t qualified on hair. If you want skin advice we won’t give it to you, you want your makeup done we don’t do it. We do hair, we are trained in hair, not how to cook steak, home remedies on stain removal or how to stop your husband from snoring. 

We all like to hear the sound of our voice and maybe you just wanted to ask everyone you met, get as much opinion as possible then decide.  Well because it’s what we do we know our business better than others so if you have random questions don’t hesitate to drop us a line on email or social media. 

How to keep the love from expiring

When you get it right it can be euphoric, seems like all the stars aligned and everything on the planet works. The birds are singing, the sky is blue, it’s just bloody right, right?


But then 6 weeks goes by, no one is talking about how your hair is on fleek anymore, the color has faded and your feeling a little neglected. 

It’s ok sunshine, when we said we want to see you in 6 weeks we knew you would be feeling like this. 

Solution 

Always have a game plan for the next two visits to keep you excited with what your doing, could be growing out the bangs, going slightly lighter or shorter. Having a plan, with a date is always always going to have better chances of exceeding your expectations than randomly stumbling month to month then calling someone to fix it at the last minute! 

A plan, a prior booking and good advice you’re on your way to getting a steady stream of hair love ☔️

Men’s haircuts gone wrong

You only have to step out of your house, you see it everywhere. Everyone is leaving the top longer yet only a few should actually be doing it!


Whilst cool and on point hair is just that it doesn’t always suit everyone.

This type of cut on a round face with a large forehead is wrong!

Ok so you heard it, doing this on the wrong face will add weight and make you look chubby, you don’t care and your a rule breaker!

Then you have to break it up and add texture, color or variation as the more solid it appears the bigger your head looks and you risk looking like a cartoon character. Sure no one will tell you, they will say cool Man it’s fine but in reality you will end up going back and deleting every single photo of you you can find. We are doing you a favour, a community service if you will.

Sunday the perfect day to get yourself refreshed

Sundays are like natures ctl alt delete where we spend the full 24hrs knowing we do not have to think about work ( unless your work Sundays in which case life really does suck )

A sleep in, breakfast in bed and take your time changing and showering sounds like a good day! A perfect day with loved ones is the best!


But what if you looked at things differently? Instead of thinking Sunday was a day to recover rather think of it as a day to refuel? Get inspired and recharge your batteries?

We open Sundays 11-6pm and can make sure that your putting your best foot forward from Monday.

Awesome hair happens in Salons not under a tree

You may as well asked them to solve global warming and you thought creating a taper cut would be fairly basic yet sadly it’s not!


Guys it’s time that you realised that your hair is your outfit, you can not spend 5 min on it and expect to look like a GQ model. Having a reference picture and idea of how to style it is not left to celebrities or Bollywood it’s expected from you too!

The best way to get what you want and something  that not only suits but something you can manage and replicate you need to go to someone that “gets it”. 

  1. We do, come and see how we can change things for you

Healthy hair diet you will thank us for

To have healthy hair you need to do a few things and none of which you can swap or change. It’s not a bargaining thing it’s facts, you can not have a good diet and only sleep 3-4 hours a day and expect to be full of energy. Just like you can not skip gym 6 days a week and have a killer body, sadly it just doesn’t work like that. Healthy hair is a combination of what you do internally and how you treat your hair once it’s outside your body. 

Via @marieclare

Hair once visible is not living matter so it’s incredibly susceptible to damage and must be treated with respect in order for it to be in best possible condition. 

We all want what we want, some want every chemical treatment available and yet wonder why it’s not silky smooth and healthy, well sometimes you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Healthy hair starts with you and your diet, a balanced diet that ensures your body is getting all the nutrients and fuel to be able to function and grow the best hair.

  Can you increase hair growth? Reality is no, sure some will say you can because we all want to hear it but truth is you can not. Hair grows marginally faster in summer vs winter that is a fact. 

If I’m growing it why should I trim it every 6 weeks?

May be obvious but in case you slept through that class, hair is dead, if you don’t remove the ends every 6-8 weeks then you will get split ends which will travel up your hair shaft and break off. Hence your hair will appear like it’s not growing or at times getting shorter.  If it grows on average 1.5 inches per month you can trim 1/2 inch every 6 weeks it’s still getting longer right?!

Can I rub fruit, oil or anything on it to make it grow faster?

Um no, if you have any idea how skin works, it’s not soil and your not growing tomatoes 🍅 compost on your scalp will only give you a bacteria infection and do absolutely nothing to your hair growth!

Can vitamin supplements help?

In some respect yes, if for whatever reason you can not cover the five food groups then you can add a Su plumber to assist however again this is a last resort and not going to grow your hair faster or thicker. 

The best advice is everything in moderation, make sure you have a hairstylist that will say no to you in the interest of healthy hair, don’t do something for the sake of it and always use good products.

Give me something yummy! 

When it comes to explaining what look your after be it a color or a cut it can be very difficult, we have heard it all!


Some discriptions include ( actual conversations)

  • I want a really yummy color
  • I want it rich, not dark, not light, not red but not flat
  • It should look sporty, casual but still formal
  • Don’t cut the length, the layers and I don’t want bangs or to change the color but it has to look 100% different
  • I want to wash it and not do anything but it should be exactly like this photo ( shows a photo from a Chanel campaign) and I don’t want to use anything on it!
  • I want it to look like sex
  • Has to match everything in my wardrobe.  
  • I want the color to be seen, not by everyone especially not my parents. 
  • I want it to be very light but the roots can’t grow out dark ( this one was hard to keep a straight face 😐)
  • I know I have black hair but I want it white, I only have 30-40 min. 

And the list goes on!

We know it’s hard to explain something that is in your head better than anyone else, we know the right questions to ask, the right questions not too and the references to get your taste buds wet! Getting a feeling or an image out of your brain is what we do and what we train on so you will know the difference between average and the best hair you have ever had!

Wrapping your hair in a towel or turbin is making you bald

Chances are in summer and winter you wash your hair and throw it up in a towel while your getting ready to remove the excess moisture and this could be ripping your hair out!

Whilst the act alone isn’t the cause it’s the behavior around it that causes the damage. We find a lot of people will use a towel on their head to dry it like they are moping a floor, rough and aggressive! This will agrevate the hair and cuticle making it frizzy.

So how are you meant to do it we hear you ask?

Well it’s fairly simple, shampoo and condition as normal, when the conditioner is in use a wide tooth comb, starting from the ends comb out any knots ( do NOT rough up the hair from this point onwards). Rinse gentle using the palm of your hands until all the conditioner is out, squeeze excess water out keeping the hair flat. Finish your business in the shower get out and lightly pat, yes PAT dry your hair, don’t rub it!

Add a water soluable serum then style as desired. There should be no pulling, rubbing or flipping that’s for cleaning the floor or making Hamburgers !

Dudes time get your hair game on

Guys tend to be lazy and lets be honest we do not invest the same amount of time or planning as woman do, clearly we are not as smart or well planned but times are changing! There is really no excuses that we blokes can sit back and think its fine not to make sure that your hair or grooming can be below average or at best average, no one is attracted to average other than other average people!

We think its about time that guys started spending more time and thought on there hair to change it up a little and stop looking so basic! Here are some cool ideas for you as we know you wont bother reading you simply want pictures so here goes!
