Vegans, you are going to love this!

More and more people are choosing a plant based diet rather than eating meat and whilst we are not sitting here pushing our opinion down your throat, you clicked the link so in our own defence you started it!

We can get everything we need from plants it literally that simple and in fact our body functions better being vegan so why not do some research and see for yourself.

A lot of people are concerned and curious what food helps hair grow and to be honest if you want to have your body function to its peak it requires balance. A balanced diet covering all food groups plus looking after our body in terms of sleep, stress etc etc. a healthy growth is part what’s going on inside and what you do with it on the outside. So maintaining a clean scalp, conditioning the hair and not destroying it with heat, excessive color or styling which a lot of times is over done then think you can do a “hair spa” to fix it think again!

Hair color decoded

It’s one thing to see a photo and like someone’s hair color in a photo at the beach and another when you see the same person inside the office. Light changes everything so when you are choosing or even thinking about hair color it’s important that the images you see are realistic to your goals.

If it’s afternoon winter sun, the hair looks warmer, if it’s inside typically will look cooler. Direct sin will reflect warmer tones and of course then you have the fact that images online most likely have been edited slightly if not a lot!

Get your hair references ready and then once you have, go through them and cut the ones out that are second choices, then you will have a more accurate idea of the hair you want!

How to blend grey hair easily

Going grey can for some be super dramatic and stressful and the darker your hair is the more you notice it! Often the first few isn’t much of a problem or concern but then slowly over time it’s a few dozen often at the most annoying and visible places. Now covering a few isn’t much drama or maintanence but once the regrowth becomes visible then it becomes problem every few weeks.

How can you fix it?

The easiest way to manage going grey is remembering as we get older our hair should also go slightly lighter. Now not saying we all need to be blonde but if you had black hair when you were 22 and now 45 possibly you shouldn’t still be thinking your hair is black. The darker you color your white hair and the more that there is the more you will notice it!

This head of hair is in fact 80% white hair

So if you want a low maintenance hair color and tired of visits to the salon every few weeks it’s maybe time to find out how we can help.

Don’t get lost in the crowd, change your color

For a lot of people the struggle to get seen is often real, we like to be noticed and in fact at times our life depends on it! Work opportunities go by because your the nice one that always says yes, the one that stays late without question or the one that goes without because that’s just the way you are, nice!

If you want to be seen maybe a fresh color with variation is what you need!

What to do with those split ends!

Many products offer fantastic solutions to everything from fixing your split ends to loosing weight and increasing hair growth when in fact we all know they can’t!

The only way to fix a split end is by cutting it off!

Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks and do not over style it, always use conditioner and heat protection!

Oil massages, the facts!

Your mum told you to do it so it must be right, right?

Now before you all decide to spam our inbox keep reading.

Oil & water don’t mix right? No they don’t and hair is dead keratin right? Yes!

Oil doesn’t absorb into the skin does it? No!

You can’t replace the moisture inside your dead keratin you can only protect it!

Oil coats the hair even after washing it multiple times, later upon layer of build up of that oil and it accelerates the heat created by sun, air, wind, Ac etc. the heat seals the oil on your hair and the heat is increased sucking the last bit of moisture out of your dead keratin hair!

Later upon later of oil ( because your mumma said it’s good) now your hair feels like a Brillo pad and tougher than concrete but super shinny ( from the oil coating )

Your mum is wrong!

If you think that oiling you’re hair is right and makes your hair grow, stand in a bucket of water and absorb the water next time your thirsty!

What is in our secret sauce!

Like everything that is good, we all often wonder what it is about it that makes it they way it is, just like KFC you may be able to make it look the same but it just isn’t the same! Deep fried chicken isn’t KFC’s secret!

Do we have a hidden way of working, nope in fact we have always maintained the same conversation about being transparent and real, if you need something we will tell you, if you don’t we will also tell you! There should be nothing done unless it makes sense otherwise it’s a waste of time and money. Sounds kind of simple but sadly it’s not common place as much as we would like it to be.

Some may think that being blunt is rude, telling you that you don’t need something lazy or turn up on time so everyone enjoy’s a salon that doesn’t run late as rude. But in our defence we feel it makes the experience a win win for everyone.

If you haven’t visited us, we are not a new salon we have been in Meherchand market for 4 years, drop in say hi and have a chat about hair or just come say hi 👋🏻

How to know you will get the best hair when you visit the salon!

Trusting a new salon or stylist is always hard, can be hit and miss and at times like they simply don’t listen. The best way to get what you want is through a good solid consultation before anything is done to your hair!

We always suggest that if you haven’t been to us that you allow a little longer so we can sit and go through what you like and don’t like about your hair, what you will do daily and what you simply won’t ever do. It’s only then once there has been a two way discussion that either party knows what needs to be done, what is realistic and what can and can’t be done. It’s from that conversation and how in-depth it is that will determine if you get the hair you want or not!

So if you want good hair, it starts with a solid Q & A and getting to know what’s inside your head!

Inside the shower photos

After recently reading an article that was completely wrong, even after being asked for the answers, we thought it best to share again some facts about washing your hair to set things straight. Hairdressing is doing hair and to get others opinions, whilst we welcome that with open arms its best to get hair advice from people who are qualified doing hair not your mum, aunt, vegetable guy or your plumber.

Some say washing your hair every day can cause hair loss? 

Well the easy answer is no, however it’s wrong if you use the right shampoo and keep your scalp clean then you are doing everything to have a healthy scalp which means healthy hair growth. If you use a shampoo that is drying or too aggressive, then it can affect your scalp PH leveltherefore possible increase hair loss ( note that it won’t be the only cause and we have never seen someone go bald from shampoo fyi )

Should you water down shampoo?

Absolutely not, this is 100% false both shampoo and co dituonrr in fact should be used in damp hair and excess moisture removed before using it!

Can we apply shampoo directly to your scalp? 

Directly onto your scalp yes, isn’t that the purpose? Take from bottle into your hands then apply it directly to your scalp massage well from scalp to ends rinse and repeat if desired!

Do all chemicals damage your hair?

No, if your colouring your hair “out of a box” or trying to DIY chances are whatever you do may do damage. Colouring your hair shouldn’t cause it to look or feel damaged unless your doing other things that effect it! Don’t do home remedies thinking they are all good, some in fact cause more damage than chemicals!

If I want full hair, can I skip conditioner because that makes my hair flat? 

No, if it’s too heavy then use something specifically for your hair. Conditioner closes the cuticle of the hair ( the outside layer ) snd prevents moisture leaving the hair!

Does frizziness cause hair fall? 

Absolutely not!! Hair fall comes from inside your scalp, breakage is external. Some people have naturally frizzy hair that no product on planet earth can tame, doesn’t mean your going to be bald. Split ends eventually break off if not cut at some point!

Be careful where you get your information from, sadly a lot of wrong information is out there, do your own research and try to get advice from people doing hair. Remember, a makeup artist does makeup, a numerologist studies numbers, a builder builds houses.

Hairdressers do hair!

How to freshen up your hair this winter

You want your hair done but don’t want to go all out and have a full color, maybe it’s too damaged or maybe you just want to spend a whole lot. Either way there are options!

The color above was a little gold all over so we added ash brown at the roots and balayage on the ends to balance it out and give life to a new look without removing all the gold. Creating variation and gradient without damaging the hair.

If you think your hair needs a little adjustment come see us, there is always options.

Your old school ways are so boring

Doesn’t seem that long ago for a lot of us there were a handful of TV stations all playing much the same nonsense at set times and we were happy or content with it! We would watch it and religiously follow it, watch tv ads buy into whatever was being sold and that was that.

Now our brains crave stimulation 24/7 and often after a few episodes or seasons we ditch a show just because it’s predictable and just boring. We want constant fresh content, hot today and cold tomorrow!

Just like that we now need to think of hair the same way, just because you have it today doesn’t mean it needs to be like that tomorrow, day after and day after, it’s boring!

Come see us and be fresh!

Step by step in the shower

So many people put the focus on skin and cleansing your face, removing makeup and closing pores but are happy to wash hair every 3-4 days. It’s completely absurd to leave the perspiration, dirt, product and pollution on your hair and scalp for days and not have some side effects!

The growth or healthy growth of hair and maintaining it is largely linked to the PH level of your scalp. This is effected by what’s on it or rather what’s not, sure you can use product but it must be washed off daily. Sure you can workout but you must wash the perspiration directly after your workout. 

No matter how special you are or think you are, science doesn’t care. Leave it, fine because your busy and don’t want to blowdry daily then maybe you have the wrong haircut or don’t know how to manage it. If that’s the case you need to drop into your salon and ask for help because that’s what we are for!

Rod giving lessons on how to shampoo

Styling tips you need to know!

You tired of watching YouTube video’s on how to style the perfect curls, 24 ways to wear your hair or hair hacks? It’s true some people are just plain bad at it but with a little help it can be easier than what you think!

Here are a few tips that are the biggest cause of hair fail, your welcome!

  1. Always use a conditioner or leave in conditioner don’t think by not conditioning it’s always the right way to get fullness. Use it only on your hair not scalp.
  2. Pat dry your hair after shower, don’t toss it around, flipping it all over the place expecting it to do anything other than make it frizzy
  3. Blast dry your hair gently BEFORE trying to style it! Yes 90% dry before you pick up a brush!
  4. Just because the stylist did 17 sections all nice and neat, you can do a lot less and don’t stress too much about how neat or messy it looks.
  5. Don’t use too much product, try it without and build up on it each time you do it.
  6. After you think you are done don’t play with it too much, often it is just a gentle pat into place that it needs nothing more!
  7. Once it’s dry, brushing it too much is not the answer!
  8. Dry shampoo is ok but a lot can leave the hair looking dull, try a dusting powder or limit your dry shampoo.
  9. Serum in moderation is great but using too much can make it look oily.
  10. .Next time you’re at the salon watch, ask questions and see how it’s done or take a video so you can refer to it later!

It’s rarely just the tools that make the difference although at times they help. Good luck!

Home of the most expensive haircut in India

If you are like a lot of people you tend to be on a constant lookout for a bargain and let’s be honest who doesn’t like one right! On face value a product X can be cheaper at one outlet compared to another and it’s exactly the same thing ( it’s a product that is made in the same factory is exactly the same ) let’s say the new iPhone 11 can vary in prices dramatically so if you get it 10,000 cheaper then you got yourself a bargain!

Now if you just want a cheap phone that you can still call, text or check out memes then you can spend a lot less and save a lot more than 10k. Apples for apples pardon the pun!

So what is the value of a haircut or color? 

Depending on what you are after and who you ask, if you are shaving your head it’s based on experience of the service I guess but if you are after a certain look and want your hair to move and look a certain way without risk, get constant compliments and feel the best you possibly can then it’s everything!

The old saying of “its only 2 weeks between a good haircut and a bad one” is so far from reality that anyone who has had a bad haircut would agree! The difference to your personality that your hair can make is by far the quickest boost out of anything you could possibly do. Being able to get out of bed, do very little and know how to handle it so there is virtually no bad hair days gives you the confidence with your hair and look that you need to be a boss! 

Now whilst Rod May be the most expensive hairdresser in the country and has years of experience we also have a full team trained alongside him that are incredibly talented. If you have never loved your hair or get compliments rarely maybe it’s time to experience it!

Now whilst you may not have a private plane or a budget that has you in the market for one we now have EMI facility so it doesn’t need to break the bank in one go! Haircuts with Rod start at 7000 + as well as our highly trained stylists. Call the salon directly on 01141010011

Color now pay over 12 months

You want your color done but it’s not pay week? No problem we now have EMI facility for major debit and credit cards! You can choose to pay over 3,6,9 or even 12 months on anything above 1000inr

So now there is no need to only feel like a boss 1 week a month!

Bank terms and conditions apply and interest rate varies from bank to bank.

How to deal with your mother in-law

We hear a lot about the challenges that being married to 3 people and not one has and it can obviously be challenging and stressful beyond belief. Some are super lucky snd have managed to set the boundaries very clear while other use mental powers to deal with it but on a daily basis it can be torture!


It’s hard to think that you have to lie to someone for them to back off and let you live you life but at times it’s reality. Well we have discovered the best way to deal with mother in-laws when it comes to the demands of hair that you will love and are super easy!

Yes you could move to Alaska and tell her that don’t have phones, I guess that might help but kind of extreme and to be honest might be a tad cold. If an intervention can’t be done and a civil calm discussion is out of the question then I guess a few “white lies” should do the trick!

You have wanted short hair or a fresh hair color but you know she will go mental at you and tell you point blank that she likes long hair!

Don’t panic, it’s easy to pass the blame and yes we have done this! Simply do what you want with your hair, no old restrictions just do it without thought because I guess it’s your hair and your not in prison so do it. Now here is the bit you need to get right, go show her angrily and incredibly upset, if you can shed a few crocodile tears even better! Just think Emmy awards or your making the best tik tok clip to a sad song.

I can’t believe these hairdressers, I told them only a trim! This is going to take years to grow back omg I hate it I look like a boy etc etc. Get all her thoughts out together as if you absolutely hate it and don’t know how you will live or even go outside the house looking like you do! Deep down you love it but don’t let her think that for a second.

Her natural instinct will be to calm you down, tell you it’s not that bad and in fact look ok. Let her continue she will keep the compliments coming, trust us. Keep referring to your hairstylist as if they must be on drugs or blind ( it’s fine we have thick skins ). Once the “scene” is complete you leave, still upset and tell her you just don’t feel right and you need to get some new clothes to match the hair and boom you have managed to avoid an argument!

Always look after your in-laws!

Drink this and feel 8 times better immediately

How to get ready for a night out in 6 minutes

We all either have one of those friends who ditches at the last minute after hours of getting ready or you are one of those friends!

It’s reality and honestly with Netflix dropping content like it’s end of season sale every day it is hard to maintain the motivation throughout getting ready. Let’s try to help you with a few tricks, maybe you know them maybe you you just haven’t tried so here goes!

Dry shampoo or a styling dust, dry shampoo can look a little powdery or leave a white residue so a styling dust is ideal. Soaks up a little oil and gives your hair the extra volume you need. Wear it messy, it looks more effortless and just play it into place.

Top knot, yes it’s an option and super easy! If it’s greasy or oily then some dust or dry shampoo prior so it stays up.

On dry hair lightly spray a texturising spray and lightly scrunch it up. Natural and sexy

Do nothing but lightly iron the top layers to make it look more sorted without a huge effort of going all through your hair!

If none of this works we suggest cancelling immediately and spend the remaining time searching for a new series to binge watch!

You wash your face daily but ignore your scalp?

So many people put the focus on skin and cleansing your face, removing makeup and closing pores but are happy to wash hair every 3-4 days. It’s completely absurd to leave the perspiration, dirt, product and pollution on your hair and scalp for days and not have some side effects!

The growth or healthy growth of hair and maintaining it is largely linked to the PH level of your scalp. This is effected by what’s on it or rather what’s not, sure you can use product but it must be washed off daily. Sure you can workout but you must wash the perspiration directly after your workout.

No matter how special you are or think you are, science doesn’t care. Leave it, fine because your busy and don’t want to blowdry daily then maybe you have the wrong haircut or don’t know how to manage it. If that’s the case you need to drop into your salon and ask for help because that’s what we are for!

Your hair should not be such a burden styling it, if it is then something is wrong.

How to manage the grey hair!

Typically it starts with 1 or 2 and you just style it differently then 3,4,5 and before you know there is too many to hide. You may go for an overall color to cover it 100% as the regrowth won’t be that much. With 10-20% white hair the Maintainence isn’t going to be that high, however underneath your now coloured hair it’s continually becoming more white whilst you can’t see it, it is still happening.

Everyone’s tipping point is different and everyone’s version of high maintanence hair varies. If you have to get a color every 3-4 weeks then it is fairly high maintenance or if you have to plan your week around touch-ups then it maybe time to reassess your hair color!

The older we get the lighter your hair needs to be to look natural, you may have been born with dark ( almost black hair ) but now at 45 it’s not going to look natural with every single strand of hair exactly the same color.

How to look more natural?

Create variation in your hair color, can be simply leave the ends out and take them slightly lighter or it could be a subtle balayagè to create variation. Another way is to not take the base color so dark and also take the ends slightly lighter. The best way to have make a plan is to sit with your hairstylist and discuss it in depth prior to doing it.

Don’t do what you have always done just because you have always done it.

Where to get the best haircut in Delhi

So since we posted about which salon is the best and how to search a few of you thought we should clarify so here we go and hope it clarifies things for you.


Google is one way to find the things you want, sadly or in reality we all know that just because it is the first to come up doesn’t mean it’s the best. In fact it usually takes a bit of word play to find what you are after if you are a master of google! The best way to find your ideal salon maybe asking friends where they go ( obviously ask friends that have similar taste as you and similar quality expectations ) there are groups on Facebook and what’s app, try asking there.

Now while most are happy to give anything a try, as the saying goes “its only 2 weeks between a good and bad haircut” if you think this is true, haven’t had a bad haircut.

Now while we could write about our awesome technical abilities or our unique cutting method, it kind of means squat if we don’t get each other!

Go to the salon you have shortlisted, talk to them and see if you “click” once you have done that with all the salons it’s then you decide who to trust with your hair!

No one charges to talk to you, so relax!

What you get when you come to us for hair

We have been thinking a lot lately on why people get things done, why we spend money, why we chase things and people even if it’s not right for us.

A lot of the time it’s boredom, sometimes it’s just plain stupid and we like being stupid and other times it’s through lack of knowing what you should chase and what you shouldn’t.

With so much information around us it’s hard to filter what’s real and what’s false, Instagram has us all feeling like a failure because for the majority of us we don’t fly around the world in a private plane and have close dinners with A list celebrities every few days. We are not wearing the latest drop from the coolest labels and your saved list of things you want is longer than your prescription from the last time you went to the dermatologist!

Whilst you may have heard the most expensive haircut in India is from us, but the reality is we often say no to things that don’t make sense for you to do. Crazy we know but because we like to be as honest as possible if it’s not the right thing to do or your expectations and reality are lightyears apart we tend to play things safe so you know what you are in for. I guess because hair is such a personal thing it’s easy to get emotional about and make poor decisions it but at the end it can make you feel unstoppable and just plain awesome if your hair works, so we take it very seriously!

You get honest, because we like to sleep at night knowing we speak the truth.

You get facts versus fiction because it’s easy to be real than put on a constant show.

You get options, if you have a budget ( like 99% of people on the planet do) we go through the cost clearly breaking it down so there is no surprises.

If that sounds too easy to be true then it’s about time you dropped in and let us do what we do!

How to reset your life

Easy answer, you can’t! Oops sorry does that mean you are already going to give up on reading this just like you have given up on everything else?

If starting over was as easy as deleting your Instagram account I guess most would have done it several times already but you can’t! Changing your habits and attitude is often easier said than done, it takes real-time commitment and determination and often a co at any battle with your mind!

Poor choice of your inner circle and a job you are unmotivated about and before you know it, everything takes effort and not a lot looks positive. The reality is far from it tho, we are all only a few choices away from a different life ( not better or worse just different ). We see a lot of people trying to reset the life button by getting drastic changes with hair and it can be incredibly liberating and refreshing.

“If you do what you have always done, you will get what you already have”

So in short nothing changes, then nothing changes. The captain or CEO of your life is you, you decide what you do, how well you do it, the determination you have daily and persistent to your goals that will decide where you reach. Too many use excuses to justify where they are as a way to make themselves feel better about being lazy or not being able to stay motivated. It’s super easy to have an incredible goal for your life but if you are not doing anything to reach it daily then what are you doing?

Make small commitments to yourself, could be working out at 7am or working on perfecting a talent or skill but make it and ensure you are working everyday to reach a better version of you. Doing it one or two days then getting bored with it because nothing changed immediately is not being determined, it’s lazy and unrealistic!

A brand like Mc Donald’s took almost 10 years to open its first restaurant outside America in 1967 to today opening a new restaurant on average every 3 hours globally!

If you need a kick start come see us and let’s change your hair and give you a new lease on life! Don’t wait or waste time watching your phone, nothing is happening there!

How to color black hair white

Grass is always greener or the hair is always ideal when it’s the opposite to what you already have right?

For those of you who have dark hair and always dreamed of having it white platinum blonde or ash grey, it can be done!

While anything is possible it all depends on your hair and the condition of it. There is no miracle color that can in one application get you white, it’s a process! The darker your hair the more gold pigment it has so it’s a process that requires patience and will irritate the scalp that’s just reality.

If your hair is healthy enough to be able to take the process then it’s possible, the process varies from person to person based on hair texture, density, current color, and condition so needs to be seen to give you an exact quote and can vary once we start depending on your hair. It’s not cheap in fact a lot say it’s expensive however the product time and expertise that is involved it is worth it to have hair you love!

Good to note that the lighter you go, the faster you see your natural hair grow out, the Maintainence is fairly simple but can involve using a toning shampoo and conditioner to maintain the perfect ash tone and keep the warmer tones from returning.

If you are interested in going white, platinum or ash blonde then drop in and have a chat to us, talk is free

Is your shampoo causing your hair to fall out?

I washed it 4 days ago, should be ok right?

This is not even a far stretch from reality in fact we have met some people who will go a full week without washing their hair!

There is all kind of nonsense on the internet about “natural oils” shampoo causes hair loss etc etc it is in fact hard when you then sprinkle that with the tales both your mum and family told you ( with absolutely no rationale or science ) about shampooing your hair!

I guess it’s like saying washing your face causes pimples so don’t do it, after a few days I think most would be washing it!

Imagine even if your not working out, staying in a controlled environment but 4 days of dust, dirt, perspiration, oils and smells all sitting on your scalp!

Washing your hair daily is ok, every second day is also ok, using a clarifying shampoo if needed and then a sulfate free shampoo alternating is good. When you see hair come out, will using be when you touch your hair, no your fingers don’t cause hair fall!

10% of your hair is replacing itself ( dying or falling out, dont worry it’s normal ) so when you wash it there will be some hair appearing in your hands, it wasn’t the shampoo it was most likely already out just stuck amoungst the other hair!

So with pollution the way it is and life being busy, the best advice is most likely get a good routine and haircut that you can manage and reconsider alternative days for cleansing your scalp and hair!

What is true Independence

Happy Independence!

Being free is such a gift as well as everyone’s right.

The power to choose what you want to eat, the clothes you wear, religion, music, person you love, where you live, where you go, who you see, who you talk to, what you do for work, where you go on holidays and what you do with your life!

Whilst it’s easy to connect the dots and talk about how to get the freedom from excessive visits to the salon, as we write this it’s really obvious that we are not in fact truly free are we??

At least not all of us….

Try this and see for yourself

They say it only takes 21 days to break a habit and let’s be honest we all have a few, smoking, drinking, complaining etc etc and more importantly our behaviour to ourselves and others!

I guess I have noticed this more in the last few years and there is no need to be angry at people, in fact it’s proven that when your being treated badly you will never be at your peak, more likely to make stupid mistakes and most likely not learn a thing.

If something isn’t working or if has gone sideways ( which things do sometimes ) stop reacting and get back on track, have a face to face with the people involved and help them see your view and talk through what happened and how it could be different.

Stay cool and be happy!

Tuesday mood

It’s a rare quality to be able to wake up and feel amazing, it happens but day in day out having this zest for life is a challenge for most.

We could say something like getting your hair done, or once your up and check out how well your hair is behaving after a night of romping in the sack but it’s still not going to change the fact you just don’t like waking up early.

Snap out of it, get up!

If you want your cake and eat it too, don’t do it in a Hair Salon

The concept of ordering food and eating it while you are getting your hair done, is not new it’s been happening in salons for years. But a lot of salons stopped it and it’s kind of obvious why but we guess some haven’t understood it yet.

When you are sitting comfortably at home getting your blowout done for your kitty party and ask your cook to whip you up something. It’s fine because it’s in a separate room and your not cutting your hair it’s a blow out, we’ll not really hair sheds so does your skin cells together with the heat and hairdryer your food is going to be covered in body particles. Now imagine doing the same thing in a salon!!

This is why we serve our coffee in cups with lids!

Even if and let’s be perfectly honest ( it’s a huge IF ) you manage to prepare the food clean, the moment it is exposed to the air chances are it’s going to get contaminated.

So before you start thinking about we add a restaurant to our list of services understand we won’t be doing it any time soon. If you want to have your cake and eat it too, don’t order it in a hair salon!

The one thing you should be doing while Mercury is in Retrograde

According to a very wise and knowledgeable star gazer from Australia who has studied the Milky Way as well as knows where to find both the southern star as well as the elusive “saucepan” he says energy levels and motivation can be rock bottom during this time along with tolerance to pretty much everything. Could be the Swiggy delivery man not having change ( when do they ) or your partner not paying attention even tho you are dancing nakid in front of them. For some it’s a rough few weeks so it’s the perfect time to get yourself looking good and if all the stars align ( pun intended ) then you will end up feeling good as well!

Perfect dates according to astrology to get your hair done is 12th-31st July between 10am & 8pm so don’t delay.

How to do a salon visit you will love long after you leave!

For a lot of people a trip to the salon can make you feel anxious, the thought of getting something that doesn’t work on your hair is scary!

That’s why we believe in discussing expectations before we do anything, fairly often we all have an image in our mind and at times it’s difficult getting that image out into words.

The key to getting the hair you love is having the right communication before it’s done.

Come experience the difference!

A haircut can literally change your life!

Some say it’s only 2 weeks between a good haircut and a bad one, those who truly believe that have not had a truly bad haircut.

Our personality is one thing but the perception of who you are is typically based on appearance, at least at first glance!

Self esteem changes your mindset, one of the things we all do in the morning ( hopefully ) is look in the mirror. If you like what you see, your day will be better, it’s a fact! We have all had those days we feel bloated or just flat and the day is the same. So it only makes sense the easiest way to change your mood, your attitude and your life is starting with your hair!

Fresh hairstyles for the Gram

We all have those moments when the thoughts that come out of our mouths have absolutely no rational process or link to reality, in fact more often than not it’s just unrealistic!

A common request from people with super long hair ( anywhere from shoulders to ankles ) is ” I don’t want layers or remove anymore than 2 inches but I want it super full, I can’t blow dry it and I don’t want to use product” !

What, you think we make this up?

The longer your hair gets the heavier it is Fact #1.

Babe your hair is wrapped around your waist like a shawl at the beach, you look like your trying to break a world record! There is no face framing when you can tuck your hair into your socks Fact #2

But then the same person who wants color, who 1 year ago ( keep in mind her hair is at her knees! ) has blonde hair, got bored and coloured it BLACK now wants to go blonde! Fact #3 just because it looks natural, the color is there until it grows out!

We are not anti long hair but your expectations have to be aligned with reality when it comes to having super long hair, whilst you may love having a big mane to swing around at the club or flick into people in public places it can be just too long!

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

Things come and go, today’s BFF is tomorrow’s stranger and while at the time it may be sad, it’s life!

What you once considered your one true go too, turns out is as fake as the ones you shamed, but hey at the time it felt authentic and everyone saw it so it must of been real?

Chances are most probably saw through it, I guess you were clouded by the image you saw. You deleted messages explaining what it was, although not all and it was only a matter of time before it was known you actually lied, it wasn’t real. You were clever in your cover up but those photos as much as you thought they were references don’t add up!

You had it all but that one small cover up was the last straw!

Just be honest, tell the truth it’s better for everyone!

It’s not natural it’s a color and those photos to your hairdresser are not your friends!

Better than balayage, it’s the new balayage 2.1 muted and softer so you can lie to all your friends and tell them it’s natural!

Get yours!

Hair with a little color

The question of should you do Color or leave it natural is kind of a personal choice and whilst some people only color hair if it’s going grey it can add so much to your overall look!

The difference is dramatic!

So if you have been sitting on the fence not sure what to do with your hair then maybe a color could be the change you need!

What happens to your bangs in summer

Hair color that makes you look younger!

Unless you’re 16 wanting to drink most people want to look slightly better than the best, it’s often small changes that make the biggest difference to your overall appearance.

Obviously hairstyle plays a big part in that but so too does hair color! Often overlooked and treated more as a “hide the grey” type task v’s having it treated as part of the overall look to enhance the cut.

Colouring your hair doesn’t make it grey, it hides grey and while it’s covered in color, over time more grey appears and before you know what happened it’s gone from 5-6 grey hairs to 20-30-50% grey and your regrowth is now high Maintainence.

It’s not like it’s that much of a mystery let’s be honest, your age is kind of roughly known to everyone plus or minus a few years but 99.9% know your approx age so stop thinking they don’t. Also when you ask someone ” how old do I look” it’s actually polite to minus 5-10 years in your answer, no one is going to plus 5 years unless you really want to upset them.

So how can you create a better version of you?

The secret is to stop trying so hard and stop holding on to what you had rather make the most of what you actually have now! Enhance the current dont shame it. If it’s grey, add to it don’t hide it or make it black because when you were 17 you thought you had black hair!

Facts about shampoo

After recently reading an article that was completely wrong, even after being asked for the answers, we thought it best to share again some facts about washing your hair to set things straight. Hairdressing is doing hair and to get others opinions, whilst we welcome that with open arms its best to get hair advice from people who are qualified doing hair not your mum, aunt, vegetable guy or your plumber.

Bathroom Image via anyhomedecor

Some say washing your hair every day can cause hair loss?

Well the easy answer is no, however it’s wrong if you use the right shampoo and keep your scalp clean then you are doing everything to have a healthy scalp which means healthy hair growth. If you use a shampoo that is drying or too aggressive, then it can affect your scalp PH level therefore possible increase hair loss ( note that it won’t be the only cause and we have never seen someone go bald from shampoo fyi )

Should you water down shampoo?

Absolutely not, this is 100% false both shampoo and co dituonrr in fact should be used in damp hair and excess moisture removed before using it!

Can we apply shampoo directly to your scalp?

Directly onto your scalp yes, isn’t that the purpose? Take from bottle into your hands then apply it directly to your scalp massage well from scalp to ends rinse and repeat if desired!

Do all chemicals damage your hair?

No, if your colouring your hair “out of a box” or trying to DIY chances are whatever you do may do damage. Colouring your hair shouldn’t cause it to look or feel damaged unless your doing other things that effect it! Don’t do home remedies thinking they are all good, some in fact cause more damage than chemicals!

If I want full hair, can I skip conditioner because that makes my hair flat?

No, if it’s too heavy then use something specifically for your hair. Conditioner closes the cuticle of the hair ( the outside layer ) snd prevents moisture leaving the hair!

Does frizziness cause hair fall?

Absolutely not!! Hair fall comes from inside your scalp, breakage is external. Some people have naturally frizzy hair that no product on planet earth can tame, doesn’t mean your going to be bald. Split ends eventually break off if not cut at some point!

Be careful where you get your information from, sadly a lot of wrong information is out there, do your own research and try to get advice from people doing hair. Remember, a makeup artist does makeup, a numerologist studies numbers, a builder builds houses.

Hairdressers do hair!

Keep it simple haircare

You may think you have hidden your recent purchases from your partner but we know you have an obsession for the ongoing hunt for the best fix for your hair! If you keep swapping and changing things, could be a shampoo or even a diet the chances of getting any positive results are fairly low!

There is no set formula or set of products that suit everyone and it’s important to understand just by using an “extra body” shampoo or a “smooth & shine” if your hair isn’t cut to enhance, volume or sleek it possibly will be useless trying to fix it with a shampoo!

What you need is a good shampoo that will help your scalp be clean without stripping it and making it dry, a shampoo that will cleanse scalp and hair but not strip moisture & color.

Depending on your shampoo pattern and your hair and scalp but a sulfate free shampoo additionally a deep cleansing shampoo ( tucked away in the cupboard for every 2nd or 3rd shampoo day) plus a conditioner suitable for your hair type. For those with longer hair, keep a wide tooth comb in the shower to get the knots out while the conditioner is in.

Finish with a leave in serum and if needed, a leave in conditioner depending on your hair type and texture.

If you need more help drop in and see us, don’t keep filling up your cupboards endlessly.

How to get naturally healthy hair

For some people think you can literally just pay extra to fix hair that’s ruined, abuse it for months/years then simply pay a little extra or get the new treatment and you have brand new healthy hair but guess what…. you can’t!

Here are a few things you need to do to make sure your hair doesn’t need shaving off and starting again! Some you will think you can skip because, well that’s human nature and you think you can do what you want but if you want healthy hair here goes!

  • Trim every 5-6 weeks! Yes you do and no even if you are trying to grow it then ends need to be removed.
  • Don’t over dry it or end up burning it with heat tools, a blow out shouldn’t destroy your hair if done correctly but sadly a lot of the time it does!
  • Always use conditioner, closes the cuticle making sure the moisture stays in.
  • Use a heat protector or serum everyday!
  • Wash it every day or every second day.
  • Don’t use oil, yes DON’T -it coats the hair, the heat that’s generated from the coating dehydrates the hair and makes it dry and brittle.

No amount of onion juice, curd, beer or oil rubbed onto your scalp is going to do anything other than create bacteria. Anyone who spends time in a salon getting a blow out may or may not know the smoke coming off the client next door is either her hair burning or bacteria & build up burning off the hairshaft! Just because your mum told you and her mum told her and her mums mum told her doesn’t make it correct. There is no quick fix, tablets and vitamins may ( not always ) help supplement vitamins and minerals the body is lacking but take months or even years to see any effect if any!

Now stop doing your home remedies and avoiding getting cut and start looking after your hair!

Getting color and still having healthy hair

We see a lot of people with chemical damage wanting to do all sorts of things in the hope they get beautiful healthy looking hair, in a lot of cases the hair is far too damaged to do anything.

Could be over styled with heat damage from weekly blowouts done wrong or having too much color when it shouldn’t have been done! The thought of global color is in fact odd, should rarely be done yet a lot of people keep doing it thinking they need it when they don’t.

Healthy hair is about colouring it the right way, taking care of it daily and regular trims regardless of the desired length. This hair has just had balayage color and was finished with a gloss treatment, then blow dried with only hands! Finished with Cristali Liquid by Alfa Parf and that’s it!

It’s not what’s in a label, it’s the inside that matters!

Too often we all judge, by the photos you post, the amount of likes you get, your following numbers, the places you go, the clothes you wear, the length of your skirt, the amount of skin you show, where you live, what your last name is, how much you earn, how much money you have, what car you drive, where you go to gym, who you sleeping with, who cuts your hair, the haircut you have, the skin care you use and the list goes on and on!

The stupid part is it has absolutely nothing to do with the person you are on the inside, everyone has a preference for their life and the key word is “their” it’s not yours.

Stop and remember that none of the outside matters it’s what’s on the inside that counts! Saying that you can always help the outside by giving your hair a fresh look!

The naked truth about healthy hair!

For some people think you can literally just pay extra to fix hair that’s ruined, abuse it for months/years then simply pay a little extra or get the new cool treatment and you have brand new healthy hair but guess what…. you can’t! Your hair doesn’t care where you live, your social status or how much money you spend on it. If you don’t do the right things it will not be healthy!

Here are a few things you need to do to make sure your hair doesn’t need shaving off and starting again! Some you will think you can skip because, well that’s human nature and you think you can do what you want but if you want healthy hair here goes!

  • Trim every 5-6 weeks! Yes you do and no even if you are trying to grow it then ends need to be removed. Hair typically grows 1-1.5 inches per month so cut less than that and the length keeps getting longer!
  • Don’t over dry it or end up burning it with heat tools, a blow out shouldn’t destroy your hair if done correctly but sadly a lot of the time it does!
  • Hair is dead keratin, the growing or alive part of your hair is under the scalp!
  • Always use conditioner, closes the cuticle making sure the moisture stays in.
  • Use a heat protector or serum everyday!
  • Wash it every day or every second day, this keeps the scalp healthy and the PH level of your scalp healthy which in turn creates a healthy place for hair to grow!
  • Don’t use oil, yes DON’T -it coats the hair, clogs the scalp folicale and the heat that’s generated from the coating dehydrates the hair and makes it dry and brittle. It may look shiny but your hair will feel rough!

No amount of onion juice, curd, beer or oil rubbed onto your scalp is going to do anything other than create bacteria. Anyone who spends time in a salon getting a blow out may or may not know the smoke coming off the client next door is either her hair burning or bacteria & build up burning off the hairshaft!

How to stop hairfall for Men!

Most likely your a guy, you think like a guy, you most likely are not even reading this properly ( your a guy so skipping through it to the photos ). You also most likely don’t think about your hair until you’re either on the way to the hair salon or sitting in the chair about to get your haircut!

The skin fade cut, because you need to be told 4-5 times you need a haircut this will last longer & look fresh!

Skin fade with a little length on the top. Looks cool but be careful as it having hair that’s longer at the front can end up making your forehead look bigger!

Add a beard, do this or at least start doing this towards the end of summer or you could possibly die from the heat! Power to our brothers that survive through summer with a killer beard !

Color it, who said guys can’t have hair that is coloured and fun!

Yes even glow in the dark color!

If you have grey or you don’t have grey hair chances are you look fairly close to your actual age +/- 3-4 years. Colouring your hair black can and possibly does, make you look older!

Learn what’s in and what’s not, research online what salon, what stylist and stalk them.

Get the right information about your hair, find out how to manage it, what products to use & how to use them!

If all else fails, add some tattoos to your look and forget about your hair!

This is a big one, if it’s going bald or you’re loosing your hair too the point every strand on your head you end up trying to cover it up then maybe it’s time to shave it off! You will look younger!

Whatever you end up doing, don’t try to be someone else. Have an honest conversation with your hairstylist and get something that works for you, maintain it and keep changing it up every now and then!

Let’s collaborate

This word creates such a deep sense of suspicion for a lot of people and brands and yet in its true form creates a win win for everyone so why is it that it seems like everyone wants to “collaborate”?

Organic Collaboration

For some brands collaborating with certain people there is a clear goal to showcase their product or service to a certain demographic which the talent has a certain catchment in the following. Now if the goal is to simply expose that brand to the audience then the way to do it can be done in so many ways but in the tone of the talent. Imagine your a serious brand that has a very cool product but you advertise in a very traditional tone, given you want to expand your audience it’s the safest way to let go of the reins and let it be spoken about in a positive manner by the selected collaborator, after all you are wanting to touch a completely different demographic.

Who is the right catchment

With Instagram blowing up in the last few years some people slide DM’s to possibly hundreds of brands looking for a free meal, trip, clothes or even hair ( yes we get them too ). It’s not looked down at it just has to make sense to our target market. If our price point is above average and we are 100% not a traditional scripted advertiser but you are advertising mass products, well scripted generic text chances are no matter how many you have managed to amass very few will be converted to us as potential business, we all follow brands and people we typically like and can relate too. If you can’t relate it’s not for you.

A copy paste with your set hashtags is as transparent as a pain of glass, it’s an ad and doesn’t feel as authentic so it has to be not carefully curated or scripted or it isn’t real!

With some of the most successful high profile people in the country as clients, we speak from a zone of knowing what makes them tick not from the sidelines of thinking we know what they like.

The Olympics of collaborations

We have all seen those Cochella posts that once you tap it is saturated with brand tags to the point you simple don’t know what to do. It seems like the Music festival collaboration has hit its peak with glitter dust, torn booty shorts and box braids, it’s over saturated!

Now saying all the above with a little sprinkle of salt, collaborating is one of the coolest things if it’s a win win with like minded people or brands and we are always open to discuss it with the right people or brands.

Collaborating doesn’t always mean swapping services with no payment, it can be a multiple of things however typically a tag doesn’t mean you are getting something for free!

So in short, doesn’t matter if it’s not a like minded brand it’s the consumer that you are targeting and if it’s a fit for both then it should be explored. Changing the tone and content to directly connect to a new fresh audience is what makes it beneficial for all.

Happy tagging!

Beauty parlour’s are where beautiful hair goes to die

We get referred to as a “parlour” a lot and majority of the time it’s out of habit more than anything else and let’s be honest the word itself isn’t insulting or hideous it’s the innuendo of it that is. Typically a parlour is a place you go to that your mum went too, your auntie goes too and if you want a quick blow out, you end up going too!

The problem arises from training and skills set, a lot of people still think you learn hair then that’s it, you can be doing it for the rest of your life, others think the occasional brush up of skills, getting a certificate and a selfie with the trainer makes you awesome but it couldn’t be further from reality.

Learning the basics about hair is obviously essential but developing the skills needed on a daily basis takes time as well as evolving those skills to be able to perform daily on an ever changing demand takes an openness to learn and eagerness to be the best.

“When you are green you are growing, when you are ripe you are rotten”

Read it again, that’s right, when you know it all you are finished, done and have nothing left! We all need to grow and develop our skills daily to be better today than we were yesterday and not think you are the best, chances are when your mind is in that head space you most likely have lost it.

Be open to new ideas, be ready to change and be willing to put yourself out there! That’s what being the best is all about, don’t settle!

What’s your good name?

No matter how many times someone ask’s this question for outsiders it can seem a tad wrong. Like do we have a good name and a bad name? The intention is coming from the right place but just is a little wrong at the same time.

Here are some you can use if you want to have some fun with it

Enjoy your weekend 😂

Do not confuse your google search with my qualifications and years of experience

Don’t know what you were taught as a child but we got drilled into us, do it right the first time. A lot of people still think that a 5 minute video on how to color hair or because you are following multiple hairdressers and watch all the stories on Instagram is going to give you the skills to do hair. Babe it’s not If you are on a budget, we get it and will help you get the look within your budget but when you do it yourself, then have to fix it you can end up spending more time and money doing it.

Maybe your parents vibe was get it cheaper, or do it yourself?

Whatever or whoever you want to blame right now if you look like this it’s kind of irrelevant. The fix now is get it to not look like a colouring in gone wrong by a 4 year old.

How much is a color

First off let’s just all agree that everyone has a budget for most things in life. It’s not just you it’s us too so this is simply to explain more clearly why Hair Salons can only give you a guesstimate when it comes to over the phone or DM, that too won’t be accurate because chances are your hair is not standard.

When you color your hair, it’s done taking into consideration the texture of your hair ( thickness of strand, porosity of the hair & density of the hair ). It’s also then the previous colors that you have had & the condition of the ends and the overall length that are a deciding factor on what needs to be done to achieve your desired result.

It is impossible without seeing your hair in person to give you an exact price, similar to asking a restaurant what’s the cost to fill your tummy!

So if it’s hair color your after, yes we do it and we consider ourselves brilliant in this department don’t hesitate to drop in and talk to us, it’s free and we can then give you a quote and you can go home and think about it.

Face shape matters

By now I hope you know that just because certain hair looks good on your friend or favourite personality it won’t always be the same case with you and your head! The biggest challenge with trying to appeal to the masses is that everyone has a different face shape, different personality and unique goals and dreams. Not everyone should have fullness, not everyone should wear their hair long or short, curly or straight. 

When your choosing your stylist make sure you go to one that discusses your goals and understands your hair, face shape and personality enough to be able to make you look your best!

Positive life starts now

Isn’t it enough that you were born, isn’t it enough you have spent years becoming who you are, isn’t it enough that you are you?

Imagine how lucky you are and how blessed you life is, the good and the challenging. It’s perfect just the way it is!

Start telling yourself that, feed your mind with what it needs so you can be the best version of you possible. Don’t conform to others expectations of you, please you, be you!

Wash & Go cuts from India’s leading Hair Salon

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 need your hair done, drop us a message on Facebook or Instagram or give us a call, promise you will enjoy it.

This is what you want your hair to say!

Doesn’t matter if you are a boring CA, a mad DJ or a runway model we all need sexy hair or a variation of it. It’s a fact when you feel good it shows so why wouldn’t you owe it to yourself to make sure you feel the best you can!

Some people will say how can your hair make you feel sexy, these same people think food is food or a fake T–Shirt if it looks the same it is the same.

  • Don’t overlap your color on the ends of your hair, just because you are getting your roots touched up doesn’t mean the ends need to have another chemical over the top of them, this is not needed most of the time and only should be done every 3-5th color if at all! Depending on the color
  • Don’t over use hot styling tools like irons, tongs blow dryer etc
  • Always condition
  • Stop putting coconut oil on your hair! Dehydrates and causes the hair to loose moisture rather than what you think it adds!
  • Get a linseed moisture treatment every time you get a cut during summer, adds moisture tightly into the hair and rehydrates the hair

 

This’ll get you started but if you already ae struggling then drop in and see us at our Salon and let us work out what is the best options for you to have awesome “hair” for Summer.

When your bangs have a mind of their own

You got bangs but now they literally act like a spoils brat. One side goes left and the other is bending out when all you wanted was a romantic straight soft fringe that just sat nicely without any effort!

Well don’t stress there is a way without too much drama and we are here to help.

Try this!

When your hair is wet

Using the nozzle attachment on your hairdryer gently blow the bangs in one direction at the roots only using your fingers. Do this for 1-2 minutes then change sides and blow it in the opposite direction. Repeat until it’s dry then comb it straight and you are left with a soft straight finish without looking like it’s forced!

If you need help drop in and let us show you how easy it is ✌🏻

Why you shouldn’t copy others hairstyles

It’s a fact some guys need need help explaining why some things are important and it’s not a dig, guys are just wired differently. We thought it best to try some pictures to explain it.

If you have shapes and you put them over each other then another shape is created….. wow right lol.

So in short if you have a round face, get yourself a square haircut that doesn’t look round. If you have a chiseled jaw ( rare and most guys will be hating you just fyi ) then you can do whatever you like, if you do square cut then you will look more square.

Long face, avoid height as it will make it look longer! Avoid long beards as this will also lengthen your face, you need width so anything that adds to the look on the sides is the way to go!

For more drop in and have a chat with us, it’s free and we can give you some advice!

No it’s not panties it’s my knee

Often we all get consumed with social media, others living the life you only wished you had. They seem to be always doing something, going somewhere and be at all the coolest places. It’s hard to keep up and can easily make you feel like you are missing out.

The reality is, most of what you see is not the full picture, rarely will someone show the bad aspects on social media, the hard times or the unedited versions of life, no one wants to see that right. I guess by posting only positive images it gives way to more positive vibes but we all need to know that it’s not the full picture!

It’s easy to see someone grid and think “Wow” they have the life but there is always a lot that doesn’t get posted or doesn’t get loaded onto a story that you would certainly make you feel normal. That doesn’t make you want it tho right?!

In a world that is determined to make us all feel like we should be flying on a private plane and jet setting to a new destination every week, be you and try to stay real, it’s cool.

How to avoid expensive high maintence color!

It’s not cheap to be worried about the cost, it’s being human and getting color let alone maintaining it can be expensive. We realise that and we will always find a solution for your hair that suits your budget.

Now saying that, you can’t expect to eat at a 5 star 🌟 hotel every night with a budget that couldn’t get you a plate of momo’s from your local market could you. No probably not but color doesn’t have to be over the top every single time you visit.

Here are a few ways to reduce your cost without compromising the look!

  • Don’t have an all over color or “global” as it’s called in India every single time. Your hair doesn’t need it unless it’s a color change.
  • Hairspa is not going to fix your hair, may help a little but regular trims are better.
  • When the color is darker than your regrowth the Maintainence is higher and you will notice the regrowth faster.
  • Instead of doing a full head of foils everytime, try doing partline one time followed by either half or full head.
  • Don’t think just because it’s on sale that it’s good, often you will end up spending more to fix bad work than it would have cost to do it right the first time.

There are more ways to minimise the spend and we love helping you look good and still be able to afford your sushi and champagne Sunday brunches so don’t hesitate to give us a call or drop in and have a chat with us.

Yes you should swallow

If you are human we are fairly sure you have googled almost every fad diet, cheap getaways, 100 ways to work and still get paid, quick meal idea with rice and beans, how to hide a body in urban area and maybe how to grow you hair faster!?

Halter Available via Omweekend

Well guess what?

Beans and rice, no you can’t get paid unless you work lazy ass, fad diets don’t work stop eating crap, holiday at home by stop using your phone and try stashing the body in a Starbucks toilet.

Now growing your hair longer faster and trying to get hair that is super healthy, strong hair or long hair involves being committed to Maintainence and we don’t mean soaking it in Yukult, milk, curd, beer or anything else. Healthy scalp, healthy hair, remove ends every 6 weeks regardless of how long you want it and use good quality shampoo, don’t overdo the heat tools, always condition and use heat protecting serum!

Want to know more on how to get the best hair you can? Give us a call on 01141010011

Veg or non Veg

You go out for dinner and the menu is Veg or NonVeg it becomes so crystal clear it’s either one or the other right. You may even choose the place based on simply this. It specialises in crab and you love crab so you go there.

When choosing a salon, a lot of you and sorry to break it to you choose it on location or price alone.

Now whilst we have the most expensive hairstylist in the country our stylists are within reach for most but have had the training and exposure that are first hand International. They get it, they know what to do, they know how to find out what it is you want and have the understanding to either give it to you or let you know how and if it’s possible.

Hairdressing is about skill and communication and that we got in the bag.

Hilarious things people ask for at the Hair Salon

There is no end to the things we get told by people when they come into the salon. From stories about lovers, hidden secrets to some amazingly bizarre myths about hair!

We try to keep a straight face but at times it’s just a little too much! Here are some things people say when they come in to get their hair done.

  • I don’t want a cut or a color but make it look different
  • I want it light, not too light, little dark but not black
  • My hair should look different but I don’t want anyone to notice it
  • I want it long but lots of layers but thick at the bottom
  • Put something in it so it grows faster
  • I want it blonde, straightened and not cut and I hope it won’t look dry or damaged
  • This blow dry needs to last a full week, I’m going out on the weekend.
  • Use my Pantene, I don’t like fancy shampoo.
  • Can you cut it today and I will come next week for the blow dry & im not paying extra
  • I don’t want the blow dry with the cut can my mum get it instead for free
  • I had it cut 6 months ago and honestly it didn’t last.
  • Why are you charging me for a cut when I only had a trim
  • I want to know what you would do, please write it down so I can go get it done close to my home, it’s easier for me.
  • I know you are open 10 hours a day but I’m only free late nights please open till 11pm
  • Can you send someone to get me some lunch before we start
  • I’m sending my maid can you teach her how to do my blowout
  • There is so many more that would make your ears bleed we are sure, so if you are wondering how we still smile and take time out to make you smile maybe this will help!?
  • Get your hair done by us, we don’t do mani pedi, we don’t do massage, we don’t do makeup and we all know you think we should ( thank you for telling us ) but we do hair hence it’s called a hair salon.
  • 📱 01141010011
  • Why is your salon so basic?

    Most people are taken back when they come to the salon, what you see is what you get. We don’t have hidden cupboards or agenda’s other than creating hair that you love and can recreate yourself.

    Our approach is simple, if you are better off with it, we will tell you. If you are not then we won’t. If your hair dreams are pink or mermaid then we will share ways to get it, if it’s beach waves you can easily do at home, we will teach you that too.

    We don’t do “packages” we don’t do “deals” we don’t have “memberships” or buy 3 get 2 free schemes because we believe in transparency and you maintaining the choice. If you want real solutions for your hair from an Internationally trained team that knows the difference between a flat white and a short black then come. If you want to be called Mam and tell us how to do your hair then keep walking.

    We love doing hair and love making people happy so basically if you are a grump and nothing makes you happy, not even waking up to rainbows and unicorns with breakfast in bed then I guess we aren’t the place for you.

    If this sounds refreshing and you actually want awesome hair

    Looking for a sign?

    It’s not uncommon to sit back and wait to make a decision, could be to get a short haircut, get a color, go on a holiday, get a new job or whatever it is.

    Slide DM’s ask the questions, take a chance cut your hair, have the extra drink, call in sick, start that business take a holiday. Whatever it is just do it!

    Fresh hair for Summer?

    I’m sure a lot of you have gone to the salon in hope that some miracle happens, you may even have thought that by us just touching your hair without cutting it or colouring it, miracles might happen.

    Well we are the hair whisperers but there is limits to the magic in our hands. A freshen up may not mean redoing your color, it may be just a small tweak to get your hair looking new again, remembering it doesn’t have to be dramatic to make s big difference.

    If you need something done, we will tell you but if you don’t need it we will tell you that too!

    So if you are simply bored and not really sure what to do to your hair to drag it into a fresh season and fear of looking the same year after year, then give us a call!

    Can India hair go white, pink or green?

    Hair doesn’t know if it’s from India, Sri Lanka or China it’s not memory foam it’s dead keratin. Like a lot of things, magic can happy but needs to be done carefully. The darker the hair the more warmth it has in it so the more difficult it is to go super light ( doesn’t meant you can’t just means more time and thought is involved)

    Hair color is our speciality and we pride ourselves in achieving beautiful colors that you will love years after it’s gone!

    We have seen our fair share of colors that have gone wrong, half done ash blonde that’s left gold not platinum and we have fixed them all.

    Rather than keep shopping around until someone tells you what you want to hear ( be it price, time constraints or feasible) talk to us and let’s see if it’s possible to have the color you have always dreamt of!

    We know you’re a little extra

    Since you all like a little extra bounce and are lazy, we have stocked an amazing Canadian product called “Puff me” which adds a very fine powder to the roots in a very fine cloud that adds more volume to your hair that even your neighbors won’t complain about!

    It’s a powder, unlike dry shampoo which typically can be seen as a white residue this is not visible and adds tons of volume!

    Yes your Welcome

    Simple way to dress up your hair in less than 5 min

    You have all had one of those days when you struggle to find time to even go to the toilet and the list of things on your to do list is longer than the hair on your Aunties chin. Then you have to go home get changed and go out, like seriously!

    Well throwing your hair up in a top knot is not going to make you feel better in fact will most likely make you look as Frumpy as you feel.

    Why not try grouping all your various clips together after you have put it into a low pony. Don’t try too hard on placement as it should look semi random. Now you look like you thought about it when In fact you didn’t. Go out have a good time and chill.

    Neon hair accessories are in and can be super cool, oversized or grouped smaller to add color!

    Who wants platinum blonde hair?

    Yes the resolution of this meme isn’t good but then again either was your last attempt to go Platinum!

    A lot of you beautiful people call or drop in and ask for platinum blonde like it’s in a box out back, it’s not.

    To go blonde is one thing, to go white is a more complex task ( not impossible but not a 20-30 min job, nor is it a cheap thrill ). It can be done typically on Indian hair that is in good condition would require 2-3 sittings over a few days. We do this over a few days for a number of reasons, firstly to lighten your hair that much requires bleach which is fairly aggressive both on the scalp as well as the hair. As the hair is lightening the color molecule is shrinking and will expand over 24-48 hours so the color you get straight away will be more gold or yellow after a few days. We need to let the scalp PH level get back to normal before doing it again for s long lasting platinum color.

    After 2-3 applications it’s then we tone the hair to the desired shade. Is it something you can rush? Well look at the photo above and if you think you know better, please go right ahead but in reality the answer is no you can’t. If you have had a lot of previous color then your hair may not even be able to take the process anyway.

    Best to get an opinion or two from various salons before taking the risk.

    When your color lasted as long as your tinder date

    There are times when an awesome color washes out faster than some of your Tinder dates last but there are some simple ways to help it stay longer. ( the color that is )

    Now a permanent color only is as good as the condition of your hair generally so if your hair is shot to pieces ( aka destroyed ) you need to firstly work on that before thinking of changing things up too much. We have all seen someone’s ends dramatically faded a few weeks after a color, it’s because the hair condition is not good enough to hold color. The cuticle May be destroyed so much no matter what you do it simply won’t hold.

    Here are a few things you can do to help yourself ( just like you need to do after that hook up )

    • Use Sulfate free shampoo – Sulfate is the detergent that can strip color!
    • Regular trims – removes split and damaged ends preventing split ends to travel up the hair shaft
    • Don’t over heat your hair – dehydrates it and causes split ends and melting of the hair nothing on this planet can fix!
    • Avoid too much sun, it bleeches the hair.
    • Avoid using any kind of oil, yes yes we said don’t use oil. It increases the heat of your hair and will dehydrate ( even if it’s only small deposits left after shampooing it )it not add anything to it! It may look shinny from the coating but will be rough.
    • Get yourself a clear gloss color over your color, it seals it in and helps dramatically hold the color!

    Now if it’s still fading come see us and let’s work out why!

    Don’t play with it too much or it may just fall off!

    Chances are if you fall into the “most category” you have done almost everything to your hair in an attempt to get your rocks off and make you happy. The problem is the more you do, the more you you will need to do to continually fix the previous hair turn on!

    Just like a lot of things, the more you play with it the more sensitive it becomes and will cause damage!

    Don’t randomly jump into doing any chemical service just because your friend did it, unless you have had a proper discussion with your stylist!

    Looking for a hair solution to your problems?

    Between google and all the DIY hair stories you have read or been told by your grandmother nothing seems to be working. Well doesn’t matter where you look on line the issue should be talked about with the people who know hair better than anyone….. your hairstylist.

    Now some will confirm the stories and some will give you practical advice the choice is yours. If you are after an opinion don’t hesitate to get in touch, remembering to give advice on something we need to see it in order to properly asses it. Advice is free by the way ❤️

    What does your DP say about you?

    I guess no one wants an ugly profile picture, we want to look our best and often we tend to be a little extra to draw some attention right?

    Well I guess there are also times when going a little extra can send the wrong message. If your hair isn’t done, do you look dirty or street cool, if your wearing too much or too little some people can take it the wrong way or read too much into it.

    Before you get your next profile picture taken get your hair done and let us help you show the best version possible!

    Why you need to get away!

    We are told to work hard and we all have life goals yet too much time with your head in the same book you tend to stop reading and absorbing the info. It’s important that you take time to stop assess and see life before it’s simply too late. Easier said than done, we all have budgets and time restraints but saying that, where there is a will there will be a way.

    Take time off, go off grid, sleep in, eat whatever food you like and just be!

    Life is far too short to be all about one thing!

    Hair stories to get you hot

    We heard some of you don’t like sarcasm, I know right, who are these people like seriously! Well these same people like captions like ” your hair is your crown” or “buy 2 get 2 free” or even ones like ” get thicker hair with our hair spa” but sadly this type of talk does the opposite for us, it’s boring and fake.

    We are a hair salon, not a beauty parlour, it’s not a hotch potch it’s a HAIR salon.

    If you are after real and fun, call us or send us a DM if not move along.

    Getting the perfect Instagram shot

    We have all become a little obsessed with what we post and how we post it, from the filters of choice to what we share and it’s fairly common to only share the good bits so we all feel like everyone else is living a life of luxury or excess.

    Now this color and blow out is awesome, no surprise there considering we did it lol but the variation in color from reality to the screen here is obvious. This photo above has no filter, no adjusting just straight out of the camera it was taken, it’s what you see is what you get. Color by Rod blow out by Mohit

    The image that was taken from the phone is below.

    As you can see the variation in color is fairly extreme, again this is directly from the phone ( it’s fairly accurate to her hair and we love it ) Now let’s take a little warmth out and see the difference.

    Getting the right blonde in reality is a lot harder than using an editing app and sometimes it simply is impossible if the integrity of your hair won’t allow it.

    Just like life, there is good and bad, warm and cool and while one day you might be celebrating an amazing achievement the next day you might be dealing with a blocked toilet and no electricity….but I guess that doesn’t look good on your feed?!

    So before you draw to conclusions about others life or lifestyle know that images on line do not make the person!

    If you want selfie ready hair then obviously yes come see us.

    Life’s a beach

    Ever been on a beach holiday in winter and thought, sure it’s great but would be better with color?

    It’s true, adding color makes a world of difference! Same with your hair, colouring it dark brown because you think every strand should be the same color is so boring and incredibly un- natural.

    Hair should have variation in color from roots to ends as well as strand to strand. Doesn’t have to be bold, doesn’t have to be in your face but has to be there if you want it to look natural.

    Get yourself a hair consultation from us and see how we can make s difference to your look!

    How to get that glossy finish on your hair

    A lot of you have been asking how to get shinny hair so we are here to tell you the easy way!

    Some use oils but the reality of that is it costs the hair and will cause dehydration and can cause hair loss. You can use a shine spray however that can weigh your hair down.

    Now the way you can get it is obviously healthy hair but even that needs some help every now and then. A clear gloss over your hair is perfect to give you that little extra shine and muster is the way to go. You can do it over natural hair or pre coloured hair and is virtually harmless. Grows out without Maintainence!

    This Valentine’s Day are you sliding DM’s ?

    For a lot of guys sending a dick pic is in some strange way a good idea. No idea why anyone thinks it will get you anything other than blocked but whatever.

    This Valentines try sending photos of other things or a simple message of how you feel, not saying this will work either but what’s the harm right?

    Or

    You are always welcome sending us photo if your hair inspiration for your next visit!

    Happy Valentines Day!

    Hair accessories you need in your life in 2019

    Sure body piercing is cool but unless you want to end up looking like a pin cushion your options are slightly limited.

    We all get bored from time to time and if you aren’t one of those people who wants to change your look permanently then accessories are perfect! It can be grouping a lot of the same type or color together to an oversized piece to add a little OOTD style to your day old blow out!

    Whatever the situation or budget have fun with hair accessories this year!

    Trim & cut

    Seems like for some, these two are different prices so we thought to explain why they are not!

    While the technique of cutting hair is not overly important in this situation we will spell it out for you so it’s easy for everyone to understand. When the scissors cut each section of hair, if 1inch comes off or 5 inches comes off the scissors still have to go over ever section of hair, the technique or effort isn’t any different it’s exactly the same.

    Now if once we are done, the hair on the floor varies but the price doesn’t, much to popular thoughts ( apparently ) we don’t cut by the kg!

    So it’s not a fish market, we don’t charge by weight not does the end result of variation change or alter the price in any way. A trim and a cut is the same price and both include a shampoo conditioner and blow dry, if you take it or don’t it’s no difference.

    Hope that helps ✌🏻

    Low Maintainence sexy hair

    A lot of you have grow up with your mum or grandmother making a weekly trip to the salon for a “touch up” or a blow out and it’s been the way it’s done right?

    Today we try and fit a lot into everyday and it’s unrealistic to be thinking anyone has that sort of time that’s why this color technique is so perfect for you!

    Now here are a few takeaways you should think about before you decide to take the plunge!

    • The darker your hair the more warmth it has as we go lighter.
    • The more you do, the more Maintainence there is, keep it subtle so you can be cool, sexy and low key
    • It should only need doing again after 4-5 months. It may need some tone Maintainence which is fairly easy in the meantime.
    • Regular trims to remove any split ends.
    • Price varies on length, density of hair and desired color result. We need to physically need to see your hair for exact quote.

    So if this is something that sounds like you then give us a call or drop in for more info!

    The only time it’s ok to come early

    The need to say this again is sad but the reality is we know a lot don’t read so we thought we should update for those busy people.

    The term “sorry I come early” whilst it isn’t something most people want to hear, for us it is!

    We work on appointments and when we block a time for you, we do so we have enough time to do your hair properly, so you will love it. When you come late ( in this situation ) you make many others run late and inconvenience the smooth running and mojo of the salon. We don’t rush you, out work or make others wait so if you have a booking, respect time, us, you and the process and come early!

    We know traffic can suck, it happens but for 99% of our clients they also know and plan accordingly so to be fair we pride ourselves in creating beautiful hair and not rush jobs which look hideous and sprinkled with regret.

    Worried about going bald?

    It’s not uncommon to be freaked out by life and if you watch the news or check out sponsored posts on Facebook you are sure to be concerned about almost everything!

    Ask yourself this ladies, how many bald women have you met? Like bald bald? The answer will most likely be none because it’s so rare you have more chances to be hit by a falling satellite than going bald so chill the hell out!

    Yes hair falls out and it does daily, yes in different seasons it may fall out more than others. Hormones and medicine can cause increase hair fall and change of water also. But your body adjusts and you will be fine and your hair will be too!

    At any given point 90% of your hair is growing and 10% is dying ( but will be replaced) that’s not a new thing, google it!

    Every day you will have hair come out, some days more than others! No eating more of this or than or even taking supplements isn’t going to change the way your body is made, eat a healthy diet, use Sulfate free products and shampoo regularly, healthy scalp healthy growth!

    Rubbing kitchen scraps, oil, onion pulp, eggs, fish oil etc is only going to give your scalp an infection and make you stink! It’s not going to do anything to your hair growth!

    How much Sun is too much

    Most people would agree that a small dose of sunshine on your skin changes the way we feel dramatically and while there is a lot of talk and evidence not too expose yourself too much, we need vitamin D for our body to function and grow.

    Can your hair be exposed too much, the easy answer is yes and whilst there are a lot of sun protection products obviously prevention is better. Try tying your hair up and wrapping in a scarf, a hat, you can use a leave in moisturiser and or serum which have UV protectors in them also.

    Don’t live in the shade and always wear sunscreen on your skin apply every hour!

    When your so called balayagè looks like something you want to flush

    It’s no secret that Instagram has made it look like some things are super easy, from making cakes that will make you cream your pants or sky diving off a cliff but one thing that is certain, Balayage is not a DIY type of thing.

    If you want it done properly go to a professional salon it’s that simple. No it’s not just like colouring for to dot Susan, it’s creating art freehand and no not after a night out on turps ( although have done it and was all good ).

    Thinking about getting away from foils and getting something more natural then come have a chat with us.

    How not to behave in a salon, an open letter

    Dear Sharon,

    Thank you for calling and booking in an appointment for your hair tomorrow at 10am and yes we will call you before the end of the day to remind you ( because we know you are sooo busy and even though you only called at 6pm on a Monday we know you life gets away so we will call you in a few hours )

    It’s no problem you decided to not wake up early, it’s cold and in reality setting the alarm at 9.50 when you’re 20 min away kind of isn’t really going to work it’s fine. Good to have that option in case you did wake up early I guess, it’s fine we turned away 3 other people for that time it’s fine. Don’t worry just like last time why not rock up the following day at 10 and say we made a mistake, should work right, or just come once your awake take your time and just say you got stuck in traffic.

    Don’t worry, it’s not like we have a naughty list and people like you we love cutting your hair, 100% we wouldn’t put you on it 🤭

    Appointments are just a rough idea when you may or may not come, but if the rest of our clients do the same thing, we know you won’t mind waiting when someone does the same thing and we run late, even though you may have a flight, we know your ok with catching the next one.

    We remember and smile the time you also made 4 appointments in the same day, but so sweetly told us you would “let us know which worked best”.

    You Sharon are awesome, thanks for coming we love you.

    Explaining Face shape for you guys

    It’s a fact some guys need need help explaining why some things are important and it’s not a dig, guys are just wired differently. We thought it best to try some pictures to explain it.

    If you have shapes and you put them over each other then another shape is created….. wow right lol.

    So in short if you have a round face, get yourself a square haircut that doesn’t look round. If you have a chiseled jaw ( rare and most guys will be hating you just fyi ) then you can do whatever you like, if you do square cut then you will look more square.

    Long face, avoid height as it will make it look longer! Avoid long beards as this will also lengthen your face, you need width so anything that adds to the look on the sides is the way to go!

    For more drop in and have a chat with us, it’s free and we can give you some advice!

    High end protection

    If you have color, chances are you have spent good money and a fair amount of time getting it done so it only makes sense you protect it from fading right!?

    No one wants to have the ash brown turn into a brassy gold that makes you look like a misfit so here is the things that will help your color changing!

    • Use Sulfate free shampoo, gentle on the hair and scalp yet will cleanse it properly. Safe to use daily always follow with a suitable conditioner for your hair type!
    • Regular trims, every 5-6 weeks regardless on length or goal length. The ends need to be removed before they split!
    • Don’t over heat your hair, once a week is ok but burning it with heat tools will destroy the cuticle leading to color fading.
    • Over use of chemicals ( don’t color over color everytime) this dry’s out the hair and leaves it damaged and brittle.

    There is more but differs from person to person and the history of your Colors. Don’t hesitate to drop in and have a chat with us about your hair, it’s free

    A good opportunity to find out any problems, dreams, wish list, things you don’t like, Maintainence level your comfortable with and a lot more. It’s more than rubbing your head and asking if you want a trim.

    How to get thicker hair, all you need to know

    Now before you all stand up and say anything let’s be honest and understand that anything you do is not going to be an overnight thing!

    You can make it appear thicker, you can have it cut so it sits fuller, you can use product to give you volume, you can have a good balanced diet and healthy lifestyle to encourage the best growth possible. You can’t take a pill and somehow grow thicker hair, sorry not sorry.

    The right cut can add volume and help with the appearance to make it look like you have more hair as well as a few tricks on styling can help dramatically. Having shorter layers whilst you may think it’s the way to get more fullness on the top and your so called ” bounce” it also takes hair away from the lower parts making it look thinner or hacked when you put it in a pony tail.

    Best to discuss this next time your in the salon.

    The messy Pompadour

    In 2018 we saw a move towards more natural hair that is more low Maintainence and easier to grow out and we feel this trend will continue in 2019 because we all know how we try to fill every day to the max and really don’t have time for high Maintainence hair!

    The good thing about this style is can be worn shorter and given that is heavily textured you can easily wear it messy yet has the ease to be styled a little more controlled depending on the situation.

    Best styled using a matte paste on dry hair and needs trimming every 4 weeks.

    Are you really that useless?

    A lot of people grow up being told what to do, what job to get, what type of partner they should have and what type of life they should expect. The reality is you can have whatever you like and the only person who has control is you. We listen to society, advertising and social media and base happiness on what we see when in fact happiness doesn’t have to look like anything.

    If you have to constantly listen to others telling you who you are, then it’s only your fault if you believe them. No one should hold over your head the idea of what or who you are, be yourself and do whatever you want. Obviously don’t hurt others and follow your heart but at the end of the day when you find something or someone you love, life will make sense and it won’t be hard work as well as life will start making a lot of sense!

    Don’t listen to anyone who is being negative!

    So

    Why hair color is important!

    Most of you who have ever searched YouTube a make up tutorial you will be familiar with the term “contouring” with make up, its the use of lighter and darker shades to to define or highlight areas of the face be it jaw line, cheek bones etc. This has now moved into assisting in creating the perfect color specifically for your face shape. Everyone has a different face shape and hair texture so its important when you are choosing what color you are going to do that you get the right advice, not just based on what’s in but also what would suit you best after a consultation from the experts.
    Its about choosing light and dark tones in certain areas to create depth or shadow on the face and can completely change the way you look! If you are looking for a trend that is unique then look no further because this will not only be on point but bring out the best version of you possible.

    Lets look at a few various face shapes so it makes it a little easier to understand how this will change the way you color your hair forever!

    When we look at an Oval face we have to expand it a little so it’s about creating lighter shades on the lower lengths and on the underneath of the sides and deeper or darker shades on the top to give the illusion of a slightly wider face

    Round face shape, The goal here is to stretch out the look, so adding depth to the ends and lightening around the hairline will do exactly that and give you a more elongated look

    Square, Again it is about bringing proportion to the shape, accentuating the length and softening the lines using lighter and darker shades around the ears which adds interest and softness.

    Heart shape, Lightening around the jawline will soften the jawline and the lower section of the face, the top layers should be slightly lighter to take the eyes away from the width.

    Its never about trying to be someone else, its only ever about trying to be the best version of you possible. If you are coloring your hair and if by chance its a block color then your doing it all wrong, naturally no one has the same color on every strand on their head from roots to ends, its incredibly artificial making hair contouring is the go to technique to either make you look naturally hot or over the top crazy ( the same thing can be done with bright colors be it pastel pink, reds, blues etc )

    How to remove Stretch marks

    Why on earth do you think they are not normal? Possibly the only people without stretch marks are 4-10 year old that still have skin 3-4 sizes bigger than they need!

    Your body is beautiful just the way it is, you don’t need to do anything, your sexy just the way you are!

    Now treat your hair the same way and love it the way it is! Sure you may need to tweet it a little and that’s what we are here for, but why are you covering white hair? Why?

    2018 you couldn’t be assed make 2019 the year you kick it!

    You get one chance at this life kick ass! That’s the secret, don’t get distracted by life, jobs, money or boys or girls!

    People and things come and go but success and goals only happen when you’re selfishly pushing blindly towards them!

    When you wish you could be yourself

    It’s always a battle when choosing to be yourself, do whatever you like and what others will think. Honestly it shouldn’t be, if you always try to make others happy when will it be your time to be happy?

    Doesn’t matter if it’s pink hair, going short, wearing the clothes you want, choosing the job you want, dating the person you love or whatever. Be happy with you, make decisions for you. Maybe, just maybe the people around you are not supporters of the decisions but it’s your life!
