How to evolve your look, one month into 2018

In life at times things get a little let’s just say blah, doesn’t matter if we are talking about work or relationships we have to make an effort to keep ourselves interested and interesting. With our hair we tend to get busy and forget to evolve our look from year to year let alone season to season and it takes effort and planning to do it.

Nothing like the first month of the year to get ourselves into a new chapter and change our look, it not only keeps you looking on point but keeps life interesting.

The IT girl cut of 2017

Every year, or season there is one signature cut that is it and 2017 this it it! The shag lob cut


2017 is about free flowing and undone, it’s about being you shamelessly without regret or explanation. Being you is more beautiful and sexy than any blowout you or any salon could possibly do.

To get this cut it’s about texture and whilst everyone doesn’t have this amount of curl, if your hair has some movement you can still work with it to create a similar shape.

Products to get this look are as sexy as the end result, sea salt spray serum and that’s it. Sure, if your not a natural IT girl then you probably not feel comfortable but if you want to stand out then maybe it’s time to evolve!

Something Fresh to wear this season

Well it could be summer if your in India or coming Winter if your in Australia but it’s always nice to have something fresh, not the same old you, a new update u1.1


Now whilst these tunaterrific flip flops look fresh they won’t be for long so it’s important to keep changing and evolving. Wearing you hair the same way month after month, year after year is not ok, you don’t wear the same style clothes your entire life do you?

Change doesn’t have to make your palms cold and clammy in fact it should be a slow movement towards a desired goal that way it’s more subtle changes than one drastic one. So if you are looking for short why not stop a few times in between and enjoy those lengths too? Going blonde why not do it gradually ( better for your hair also ) then it looks like several changes not just one. 

Hair grows and will continue for up to 6 months after you die so it’s kind of the only time to do nothing, now is the time to have fun with it. 

Shine Ombré is this seasons must have hair color!

You preorder iPhone every year, you won’t eat reheated left overs and once it hits 10am the days paper is old news then this is for you!

Hair cut and color by Mohit kumar Sain

Typically Indian hair is darker and whilst there is a facination for lighter hair we all kind of know it’s high Maintainence to get it plus to keep the right tone without looking like a cheap hooker. 

We heard you and have developed the perfect color for this season that not only gives you a lighter look that reflects the light but does not need to be done every month, giving you freedom to enjoy summer & life! The application is seamless and completely blended so there is no regrowth at all. It looks expensive!

It’s perfect ash tones that help reflect light towards the ends where your hair actually needs it!
Come see us and see if this is your new summer look!

Fashion week hair

Fashion week in India is upon us and we wanted to share what’s happening in terms of hair globally as it can completely change the look as well as a collection. 


Imagine a nice clean collection, clubbed together with heavily dressed hair that’s intricate and colorful, there is no connect right?

It has to have a synergy with your clothes and overall look, it’s never a last minute thing, it’s well planned and is part of the overall look

Rodarte

Etro

Maison Margiela

If your outfit is heavily constructed it doesn’t always mean your hair has to be the same, at times when the clothes are so intricately constructed the hair HAS to be simplified or you could end up looking like your heading to a fancy dress party. 

If your planning on being there, give us a call we are only a short drive from the venue and you can get your hair on point and be back at the show in no time. 

Phone 📱 011-41010011

Keep it simple, don’t overdo it

New season hair trends 

Fashion week is doing the rounds globally with every designer on the planet each season trying to reinvent and evolve. Hair is exactly the same and it has its season to shine and then it’s done. 


So what’s new in hair I hear you asking? It’s kind of a loaded question as it is largely dependant on you, your hair and your comfort zone. Just because g-string bathers are in doesn’t mean it’s for everyone right?

What’s trending in hair

Balliage is still current but make sure it’s done seamlessly. Goal is a smooth transition of color and little to no lines. 

Solid colors or blocking is in, no not black that doesn’t count unless its clothes then always choose black!

Natural curl is big and has been for a while, we love it. Careful not to over do color or let anyone do keratin treatments plus color, this type of hair can not take such abuse it’s the #101 of curly hair. 

Bangs are big, the bigger the better, oversized, micro or bold. 

Beach waves or surf inspired waves are hot

Straight hair but not rebounded, this is so out!

So in short ( pardon the pun ) natural looking hair is big again and overdone is just not cool. Get yourself in and have a chat and see what changes we can do, big or small it makes a big difference in the end. 

Our style’s Menu dropped

You decided a change is what you want but not sure what, how, why etc well possibly the biggest mistake is choosing from a style book!


It’s not like going to a Korean restaurant and choosing fro. The photos because nothing is in English ( although we all do that based on if we want to eat that’s the only way it’s going to happen ). Hair texture, density, movement and face shape is always I repeat always different from person to person. 

A proper consultation, an in depth discussion about your hair, the history, what you love, what you hate, what your styling expectations are, what you want it to say and the list goes on!

Creating beautiful hair that you love is a collaboration between you and the hairstylist and rarely happens by choosing style 69. 

If your salon visit starts with hello Madam trim? Then it’s time to experience a salon not a saloon.

Line up for 2017

2017 has started and whilst some are still recovering from the year that was 2016 I know we are but we are set to make this year the best yet!


So what should we expect this year with hair, what’s new, what will will see more of and what for the love of god we hopefully won’t see again

Be seeing

  • Smoother hair, healthy hair kind of obviously but there will be more effort see more Hair that shines or Things we don’t do
  • Bangs, short cropped, long blunt, thin, thick it’s all about the bang but this one will last longer than your last one 😝 See more bangin inspiration
  • Guys don’t break out into a cold sweat you have some good news. Taper cuts & quiff’s it’s all retro. If your a rule breaker the 80’s bowl is back but not for the lighthearted or insecure. More taper ideas
  • Beach curls, although we saw our social media timelines infected with “how to get the perfect beach curls” it will still be happening this year. 
  • Neon colors yes glow in the dark color is a very new and super cool thing that’s happened. Not for everyone but if you have a per unicorn 🦄 then this is for you!

Turn me off in 2017

We will all be crossing our fingers and toes and hopefully stop seeing

  • Overdone hair, set looking hair
  • Box color
  • Hair that looks unhealthy
  • Asymmetrical haircuts! So done
  • Bad ombré that looks more like a bad DIY
  • The puff 

Yep these last ones drive is crazy but hoping not to see as much this year. 

DIY hair care exposed

In most civilized parts of the world hairdressing in a trade that requires schooling, typically anything from 1-3 years depending on if it’s hands on or a college based curriculum. Now given the hours, weeks, months of study let alone hours and hours of practical which includes science of hair, body and nutrition it’s hard to believe someone can just walk to the fridge pull out some left overs and poof, your hair is left feeling like new!


Sure we all see DIY posts on YouTube or Facebook from some very eager kids thinking they have discovered the atom bomb or debuged a myth that the human make up of hair and science was wrong, or that they saw papaya on the list of ingredients so they will mash one up and use it as a hair mask. 

Wake up please!

Hair is dead keratin, it’s dead! Yes you can maintain the health or more like condition of the dead keratin by using certain products, use them a certain way etc but putting food scraps on your head is not going to perform miracles. 

Myths around putting oil on your hair still get thrown around with people explaining why they think it works but wondering why there hair feels like straw. 

A solid hair care regime that includes regular shampooing ( every second day with the right products ) and conditioning every time. A leave in conditioner or serum ( depending on quality & texture of hair ) along with trim’s every 6-8 weeks then there is no reason to panic or have bad hair. We see a lot of people getting things done they either don’t need or shouldn’t be doing when in some situations not doing it would be better for your hair e.g.; your getting your regrowth color done and instead of just doing the roots you get it taken right thru the ends when it didn’t really need to be done ( over processing already coloured hair )

Before you stumble across a pretty little DIY video on you tube and think your life has changed and flit off to the market to get some eggs, fruit and oil for your miracle hair mask think please visit a good salon and ask what can be done to get shinny hair or softer more conditioned hair.  Chances are there are several things you can do that will work instantly. 

I can see your underwear, move along

We are not talking about VPL ( Visable Panty Line ) rather talking about being transparent in the way you behave, too often the motives take over and it becomes a game of skill to get what you want, using people as the pawns rather than the required skill to actually do a good job! When you think about being transparent with hair, we could turn this into a short film but rather lets just point out why some times we say no to doing certain things and the reason we do this is because its about being the best for you and your hair.

When it comes to your hair, we only have one motivation and that is to create beautiful hair that works both for that split moment in time when you leave the salon but more importantly for the time after you leave the salon! There are some things we wont do like rebonding or straightening as it is too damaging on the hair, there are times when you may want to do a chemical service but we do not believe your hair health will be maintained so we will say no. We do this because we look after your hair’s best interest.

Isn’t it more important to do things right once rather than having something done that requires the next 4-6 months fixing it or repairing it?
