Tea bagging

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

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

We use, we don’t do

Do not try this at home

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

Things not to try yourself

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

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

    @planethollywoodgoa

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

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

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

    Who even calls anyone

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

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

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

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

    Slide away!

    When you hair isn’t what it used to be

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

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

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

    Moral of the story?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    How to not to get out the knots

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

    We are talking about how to remove knots!

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

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

    Check out Tangle Teezer

    Electric dreamer & that hair!

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

    Shot at The Glasshouse on the Ganges

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

    The Bowl haircut

    Shag

    Shag with micro bangs

    Bob

    Micro bob and micro bangs

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

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

    Should you blow or is it ok not too?

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

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

    Who needs extra work when getting ready?

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

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

    Veg or non Veg?

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

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

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

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

    Get a big sign they said

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

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

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

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

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

    See you soon

    How to get the perfect blonde

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

    Follow Jason on Instagram

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

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

    Come see what we can do for you

    How to get that shine

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

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

    So how do you get shinny hair?

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

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

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

    The most deceiving color

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

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

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

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

    Side note

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

    How to be the best in whatever you do

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

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

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

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

    The secret to the best looking color you have ever had

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

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

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

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

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

    When your loving your hair long

    We all have an idea what we want, that’s a good thing right? Well yes and you shouldn’t t listen to anyone if your happy, again yes. Be yourself no matter what, yes but…..

    There are times you need to take on board a little advice, even if it’s from the Zoo keeper!

    Call 01141010011

    How far will you go for a selfie?

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Image via Instagram @european.son.420

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

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

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

    Be happy

    When you want the blow & the top knot

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

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

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

    Be kind, love one another and 😀

    5 reasons your color fades?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    The only Snow you all are getting is now in Shimla

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

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

    Congrats to them both

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

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

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

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

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

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

    You want to hear a story?

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

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

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

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

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

    Why are you left on the sideline?

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

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

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

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

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

    But is it still working for you?

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

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

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

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

    Pastel peek a boo

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

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

    Cool right!

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

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

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

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

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

    Woke up like this

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Because long hair is your thing

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

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

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

    Breakfast that will make your hair grow & make you rich

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

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

    International Freehand hair colouring artists

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Ten ten nails is back and open

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

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

    We you got a good thing, stick to it!

    What makes a haircut sexy?

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

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

    What’s the IT color this season

    If you have been living in a cave for the past year or so you may have missed this low Maintainence look and it’s still going strong!

    The more people we talk too the more it’s obvious no one actually wants to go to the salon every few weeks for a color, we all have way too much on our plate so how can you look good for a solid 6/8 weeks without looking like a sale item in the dollar shop?

    This is how!

    Salted caramel melt

    Yes it’s a thing, a beautiful color that won’t leave you heading back to the salon every 3 weeks for a touch up.

    Stop Moaning Lisa

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

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

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

    Why are you not replying?

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

    Sorry I didn’t see your messages & calls.

    Being creative problems

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

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

    Breakfast

    After breakfast

    Mid afternoon walk

    Back in the salon

    Decided to go get some coffee

    Then headed back to salon

    Dreaming of a road trip to the Sandunes a few months ago

    Then

    So I guess you can say life is art and you really don’t need to look to far to get inspired, it’s right in front of you.

    Met Ball 2018 the heads up

    If you thought on the weekend you might go to the arts and crafts market and do yourself a little DIY head gear for that wedding or party you got going on Jen Atkin & her crew just took it up a 473 notches. With the coolest gals on her client list here are some of her creations for the Met Ball 2018 as well as some of the others that attended!

    Tricks to get the perfect selfie

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

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

    What is the perfect selfie

    Well lit, not a dark nightclub shot.

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

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

    Hair done ✅

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

    5 ways to get the best hair you have ever had

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Hope this helps you get your happy hair moment.

    You brag about having the biggest yolk

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

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

    Hair could have taken things up a notch

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

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

    If it’s above your shoulders we cut it!

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

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

    Tired of shopping?

    You’ve trolled through the internet like you have tried to find evidence of your partner cheating, you have compared prices and deals to the point you really have no idea how half of them work. Most claim to be the best at well pretty much everything. Some claim they are the biggest, the fastest, the best, the most convenient, spacious, best trained, most awarded blah blah blah.  Over it?


    We are the coolest 😜✌🏻

    When you got a mouth full of hair?

    Nothing worst than going in and getting a mouthful of hair, kind of a mood breaker if your locks are not maintained!

    Shaving it could be an option but let’s talk Maintainence in case you don’t want to go bald. Guys with stubble, their face will act like Velcro and your hair will stick all over his face, which in itself can be ok unless your out with friends or family. Then it can look like things are getting hot when it was just an innocent peck intended. 
    Let’s start with a few things you can do to prevent this!

    • Leave in serum like Cristali liquid by Alfa Parf which closes the cuticle and keeps the cuticle surface smooth.
    • Regular trims, removes split ends which in turn creates smoother surface.
    • Pony tail, keep it high which will keep your face and neck free for playtime.
    • Pre planning is better if you can manage to shampoo and condition before it’s better, remember the smell of your shampoo on wet hair is like a wet dog, it’s not cool so dry it!
    • A little perfume inside your hair so he can’t smell the smoke from the night before your hair absorbed in the club ( when you said you were home watching re runs of friends)

    We hope this helps you not giving your guy fur balls, the rest is up to you!

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

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

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


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

    This is who we are

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

    Via @Arsenic

     

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

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

     

    Give us a call on 011 410 100 1

    If you’re bald we are sorry 

    Unless you have no hair then maybe it’s your hands that are rough 😱😂


    If you are tired of hearing the same old insults about your current hair, it’s too flat, too dry, to faded, to damaged etc etc then it’s seriously time to change hair salons!

    Your hair will thank you

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

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

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

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

    When your hair looks like burnt toast

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

    Wrong!

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


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

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

    Trust professional salons only

    When you had a full head of hair

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


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

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

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

    How to grow out your black hair color

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

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


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

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

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

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

    Flasher on the loose

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


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

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

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


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

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

    Now that’s not hard is it?

    Hair fall solution

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


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

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

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

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

    Overnight success 

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


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

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

    Thanks everyone who bothers to read this nonsense.

    If you have seen John please call 011-41010011

    Last seen exiting a salon in Dehi, John was seen running towards the airport after his not so creative cut was complete. We spoke to the alleged hairstylist who tells us he entered the salon in a fantastic mood, very chirpy in fact. “We spoke about many things and I gave him something fresh and suiting his face” the hairstylist said. Once the service was complete John informed the staff he looked stupid, ” I look like some homeless Uncle” he shouted. The entire salon plus passers by all said ” No sir you are looking too good!”


    Convinced this entire process was a scam to ruin his love life, John paid the 300rp and left saying he was heading to Meherchand market to get it fixed!

    When we asked the accused Hairstylist why he made him look like a human box he replied ” he said medium trim this is medium trim shape”

    All we can say at this point is we hope he can be located so this box 📦 can be fixed.

    Community spokesperson for the Association for Cuts that make me look like a cardboard box ( CTMMLLAB ) said that this was a bad shape for his beard, he must be ashamed however he was inticed into the salon by somewhat misleading advertising. 

    We will keep you updated on John.

    We are all guilty of being ” connected ” there was a moment in time when you could switch off from work and life but now there is not even a moment when you can disconnect.

Doesn’t matter if it’s what’s app, Instagram, Facebook or your simply searching for information we use mobile devices more than any other device.


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

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

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

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

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

    How to choose the right cut for your face shape 

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


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

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

    Tired of shopping?

    You’ve trolled through the internet like you have tried to find evidence of your partner cheating, you have compared prices and deals to the point you really have no idea how half of them work. Most claim to be the best at well pretty much everything. Some claim they are the biggest, the fastest, the best, the most convenient, spacious, best trained, most awarded blah blah blah.  Over it?


    We are the coolest 😜✌🏻

    So you want to be a Merman

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


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

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

    Are you Head or body person

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


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

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

    To plug or not to plug

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


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

    Conclusion 

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

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

    Winner mind chatter

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

    That should be your mind chatter! 

    How to choose the right pastel shade

    Even once you have decided it’s on like donkey Kong, the decision then remains which shade to go for!


    Once you have made the decision to do it, pastel that is! There are so many options you may end up putting it off just because the exact shade you can’t decide on. Best when you are up to that stage is to chill for a day or two, don’t think about it at all.

    Call and make a booking then come with an empty mind, we will sit and discuss it with you then work it out together.

    Information error

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

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


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

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

    Moral of the story?

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

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

    What to pack on your road trip

    If you are not familiar with road trips all we can say is sorry, possibly the most affordable fun anyone can have either solo or with your friends. After all travelling at 100km/hr your mates can not escape!


    But you will want photo’s to remember it right so what about your hair? Last thing anyone wants to look back and think you looked homeless. Here is a list of things you must take on your next road trip!

    • Dry shampoo! Who knows where your staying or what the water or weather is like so best to carry a bottle of this to keep you looking fresh!
    • Sea salt spray, gives you a little texture and helps freshen your look up, just don’t go crazy with it.
    • Hair perfume! Yes it’s a real product by Label M. You may be sitting around a fire at night and end up smelling like char grilled wood, this will make your hair smell fresh AF
    • Elastic hair tie’s yes plural and always keep one extra in the car on the rear vision mirror those things tend to walk on there own!

    Happy travels

    You asked for apples but you got eggs 

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


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

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

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

    Two for the price of one!

    We all love a deal, a discount or something free, it’s normal. But the reality is when it comes to certain things getting one free or getting extra is not so cool or desirable. 


    We are the leaders in hair in India, we know what you need and don’t need so that’s why we don’t waste your time creating a “deal” you don’t need. You want beautiful hair, hair that people comment on, hair that looks constantly on fleek. Hair that is healthy, hair that works, easy to manage hair and have that you love. 

    Then there is only one deal we will make with you, only one thing you need to do.

    Thinking of a pastel hair color? 

    You’re Pinterest looks like your a cartoon character and all of your saved photos are of pastel hair but can’t decide what to do next?

    Once you have decided to go pastel it’s then the final choice as to what color 

    There is no science behind it, it’s more to do with what you like but a few things to keep in mind are. 

    • Don’t limit your options on first application by going red or violet as they are the hardest to remove. 
    • Pastel washed out colors are achievable but need to be done on a clean canvas. 
    • Some colors will grab or hold ridiculously well and others may leave you faster than your first girlfriend. 
    • Better the condition, better the longevity of color 

    Happy colouring

    2. Regular trims (6-8weeks) doesn’t make it grow faster but reduces split ends hence reducing of length. 
    3. 8-10 hours of sleep a night. Yes some of you should have hair like Rupanzel right about now!
    4. Healthy diet! There are 5 food groups all nutritionists around the world know about them, it’s not a secret. Eat something from each group daily. Don’t over eat, don’t skip and don’t try to convince yourself you can cheat.  Healthy body healthy hair!

    DIY hair disasters 

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


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

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

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

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

    Your daily dose of color 

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

    Image via Pinterest

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

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

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

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

    Don’t cut it, create a change without loosing length 

    Every 6 weeks you visit the salon in search of something fresh, something new almost like a miracle. Well we are but there are some things we can’t change based on facts.  


    If you have endless restrictions yet want a change then you have to be honest with yourself and ask “with all these boundaries what dramatic can be done?”

    Every hairdresser on the planet has heard the line

    I want to keep the length, no layers, no bangs, no color but want something completely different. 

    Now we are not saying your crazy but if you re read the above it should make you re think your sanity. The best way for change if you’re feeling like you don’t want to give anything up, is small changes each visit. Let some length go this visit, change the color slightly the next. Make it a evolution over a few visits to not only keep the excitement going but also keep yourself feeling safe. 

    The naked truth about long AF hair

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

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

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

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

    Finally a pill to grow hair back! 

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

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

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


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

    Once we have more information we will share. 

    Sorry not sorry

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

    Via @Arsenic

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

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

    Fresh never goes on Sale

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

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


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

    Your pillow case could be ruining your hair?

    In the search for every possible way to help you get the best hair known to mankind we wanted to shed some light on what your laying your head on at night!


    A Silk pillow case is certainly going to reduce friction on your hair no matter what you get up to as well as reducing creases in your face when you wake up!

    Perhaps the most obvious difference between polyester satin silk pillowcases and natural Charmeuse silk pillowcases is the cost. As a manmade fabric, polyester is easy to produce in large quantities from a relatively inexpensive source (Oil and recycled plastics) and as a result it’s generally cheap. Silk on the other hand is a luxury product and is very expensive to produce, since supply is limited and the process to harvest and spin silk is complex and labor intensive. This is one of the reasons the silk trade has more in common with precious metals and gem stones (such as being sold by weight) then other fabrics on the market.

    Hopefully this article has helped to shed some light on this often asked question about the differences between silk and (polyester) satin silk pillowcases.  Also keep in mind you need to be washing your pillow cases at least 3 times a week!

    Now you have the facts, why not treat yourself like a princess 👸🏼 

    Let’s do this,  you have protection?

    Protection is not a dirty word! You use sunscreen on your skin so why not your hair? Summer is here so you have no time for fun and games when it comes to protecting your hair! 


    Alfa parf Milano, has UV filters in all of their products. 

    Don’t use oils, especially in summer it accelerates the heat and dehydration.  

    Use a water solvable serum, cristali liquid color protection. 

    Always condition, open cuticles exposes your hairs moisture and will dehydrate it. 

    Use a leave in conditioner, we use Protein Spray by label M

    Hump day solutions 

    It’s hump day which means mid week! It’s a proven fact that when you love the way you look, you feel better about yourself and are 73% more likely to be a better person!


    Ok so we literally made that up 🙊 but you get the idea right? Look good feel good and it’s mid week so the stars ✨ and moon 🌙 are not aligned perfectly for a few more days.  

    Get the look 👀 and give us a call!

    Pineapple surprise? 

    So here it is a token DIY post because we live in a material world and the land of no budgets, everyone wants a solution that even as far fetched it may, just may work wonders!


    But guess what, it doesn’t. The reality is this if you want to shave your head please feel free to do it at home, I do lol. If you think you can cut your bangs, well we don’t charge our clients for that anyway so why on earth would you?

    If your thinking of coloring, chances are to get the right color you would need to invest more money in total than what it would cost for us to do it. But if you did do it then chances are ( not saying your not awesome but some things take years to learn can’t be learnt on YouTube )

    Using food, oils and all sorts of mixtures as a miracle treatment for damaged hair? Reality is foods and oils in fact can create bacteria on the scalp which in turn may end up causing either hair loss or dry scalp! There are two treatments we recommend 1. linseed treatments by Alfa Parf 2.Olaplex if the hair is fried dead!

    We encourage you to blow it out by yourself and are always here to rectify if when things go south. If your on a budget and we all are we suggest dropping in having a chat and seeing how the result can be achieved within your limits and get hair you love. 

    You have long hair and want a change?

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


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

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

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

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

    Is that a toilet brush?

    If your a mechanic and your fixing the Maruti Suzuki 800 you would kind of expect the mechanic to have the odd spanner or tools in his pockets or kit right?


    It’s hardly acceptable if you go to the salon and the brush that’s going in your hair is sitting in the hairdressers back pocket just beside his butt is it?

    Now whilst this photo was set up its sadly a reality in most salons in India, seems like the more things hanging out of pockets and clipped on your clothes the more important you are? Now I don’t know about you, but we think this is not only disgusting but also kind of looks stupid and unprofessional besides it’s dirty AF. 

    Are you sleeping around?

    We have all had those dreams ( well I keep telling myself it’s we not me 😳)  you have the perfect clear AF dream, so fresh so vivid it’s scary. You wake up in a cold sweat in complete darkness only to realize it was just a dream. 


    The following morning you wake up feeling dirty, did you really just have your hair cut in your dream? You check in the mirror and nope it’s still there. 

    But maybe your dream hair is just a phone call away?!

    Best salon in Delhi

    Ever wondered who is the best?

    Honestly it’s not our focus but here is a few ways tried and tested to find out who you should trust on your hair!

    1. Obviously google but I’m guessing paid visibility will outway actual talent but check. 
    2. Awards are typically paid for, if you don’t know the people awarding it chances are it was paid lol 
    3. Awards from magazines or organisations outside India sadly have a bit more weight. 
    4. Check the website, if it’s about sell sell sell then run run run, it should be about skill, craft and the work. 
    5. Google the team, check who they are, check Facebook and troll the comments. 
    6. Instagram, do they post work or sales? Again depends on if your looking for quality or cheap. 
    7. Are they a one stop shop? Or do they do limited services. You want a salon that specialises in being the best.  
    8. Size doesn’t matter, some of the best hairdressers throughout history have not had locations on every street corner. 
    9. Ask your friends, family and stop a stranger to check who did there hair. 
    10. Shortlist and visit each and just have a chat, if it feels right then it’s right. 

    Google is one thing, but you have to do your own research. 

    Follow us on Instagram

    Length wohi Rakho.. Papa marenge 

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


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

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

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

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

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

    Your hair growth facts

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


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

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

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

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

    Hair magicians 

    You have got the perfect reference, taken a booking and got your hair done only to see it looks nothing like the photo you showed the hairstylist the next day and you have no idea why or how to change it!


    It’s super important we all get on the same page, hairdressers are not magicians but a good hairstylist will teach you how to recreate the look that you leave the salon with so everyday you love the look. Obviously the cut is the foundation to it all, if that’s not right then no amount of product or blow drying will fix it so the cut is super important. 

    What products?

    Very rarely will your bathroom consist of the endless supply that a salon has so it’s important you speak to your stylist on which ones you have to have and which ones would be good to have, it may mean getting one this visit and the rest next time. You should know how to use it, how much to use of it. 

    Before leaving the salon a good stylist will explain the how, when, why, why not, the how hot & how cold to which direction to blow the hair as well as styling options. 

    Good luck & see you soon!

    Your hair is so big it needs its own base camp. 

    Well if we didn’t think that wasn’t going to happen, then along came the big boofy circa 1980’s hair worn with so much confidence you really start thinking is this real!


    It’s the most hideous “go too” for so many and yet it’s a total mystery why, unless it’s done for an editorial shoot or the runway then if it’s done right we can swallow it


    But sadly we see hair so big it needs its own pin code and a base camp if you ever want to reach the top!


    On a serious note now!

    Having that much fullness obviously isn’t natural and is NOT flattering at all in fact makes most look like they are part of a drag show in Bangkok in a shady bar ( absolutely not discrimination intended just setting scene)

    Less is best, apart from the extra head room in your car, your hair will thank you too because that amount of spray and teasing is just not sexy!

    Stop it

    You got a mouth full of hair?

    Nothing worst than going in and getting a mouthful of hair, kind of a mood breaker if your locks are not maintained!

    Shaving it could be an option but let’s talk Maintainence in case you don’t want to go bald. Guys with stubble, their face will act like Velcro and your hair will stick all over his face, which in itself can be ok unless your out with friends or family. Then it can look like things are getting hot when it was just an innocent peck intended. 
    Let’s start with a few things you can do to prevent this!

    • Leave in serum like Cristali liquid by Alfa Parf which closes the cuticle and keeps the cuticle surface smooth. 
    • Regular trims, removes split ends which in turn creates smoother surface. 
    • Pony tail, keep it high which will keep your face and neck free for playtime. 
    • Pre planning is better if you can manage to shampoo and condition before it’s better, remember the smell of your shampoo on wet hair is like a wet dog, it’s not cool so dry it!
    • A little perfume inside your hair so he can’t smell the smoke from the night before your hair absorbed in the club ( when you said you were home watching re runs of friends)

    We hope this helps you not giving your guy fur balls, the rest is up to you!

    Hair frizzy & fried?

    You saw a photo of silky soft hair and thought yes, I want that now your left with hair that looks like frizz and neither straight or curly. 


    Expectations vs reality are at times different and yes the stylist should have explained it and been more truthful but whatever the issue was it needs to be fixed. Here are some solutions but we recommend visiting a professional salon to determine exactly what is needed. 

    • If it’s rebonding it could be over processed which means your hair is on the verge of snapping. Olaplex will prevent it to some extent however removing some length may be only option. 
    • If it’s keratin it may have reduced the curl, depending on how curly it was to start with. This may be the success and final result as best you can achieve. 
    • You may have had too much color applications on top of each other which has caused the hair structure to be too weak to restructure itself. 

    Will a ” series of hair spa ” treatments fix this? Easy answer is never

    If the structure of the hair is Brocken so badly that hair comes off ( snaps off, not from roots but mid lengths ) then the only two options you have is to either cut it off  or have consistent Olaplex or similar treatments which will rebuild and strengthen it enough to hold it together until it’s cut off. 


    Sadly some salons push such chemical services based on increasing revenue with little regard for quality of your hair or result and when things go south they will tell you a series of hair spa treatments will fix it. It won’t. 

    Advice

    Before you do any chemical service do your research and remember if the hair has had any color at all and that hasn’t been cut off regardless if it looks natural, it’s still there and needs to be treated with care. 

    Tricks to get fuller hair!

    There is never a day go by that someone doesn’t walk into a salon in some corner of the world and want hairstylists to perform miracles by adding volume. Yes it’s not always the most suitable fave shape to carry it off but we all want what we want right?


    So let’s just imagine by adding fullness it will suit your face shape. 

    Dropping a few tricks to help you out so your not having to sleep upside down hoping it stays like that during the day. 

    1. Shampoo your hair regularly so oiliness doesn’t build up. 
    2. Use a light conditioner only on ends
    3. A volumizing powder really really works, adds volume for hours
    4. Dry your hair upside down or standing upright lifting it directly vertical when styling. 
    5. Dry shampoo helps give a little grit to the hair adding volume. 
    6. If the weight is heavy no matter what you do it will go flop, add layers or texture it helps. 
    7. Remove some length this will lighten the load and help give it more volume. 

    The right cut can make all the difference but a little tool like “dust it” by Label M helps create the fullness that maintains the shape longer.  Get some hands on tricks and suggestions from your stylist next time you get a blow out. 

    Sweet talking in the salon

    Hairdressing is such a personal service, your getting something that is on your body so it’s personal even if you don’t think it is, it is.  

    We believe that running our hands through your hair is kind of a privilege, one that has to be earnt and is not something that can be bought to the highest bidder ( or the lowest price tag )

    The biggest problem for hairdressing is communication, finding out what is going on in your mind, even at times when you  don’t even know, it’s about asking the right questions. You will go into the salon when your either bored or need “Maintainence” ( the obvious need for color regrowth or hair is literally in your eyes ) OR your just bored and it’s been a while and at times both. 

    Now obviously the hairdresser has to have the technical skills to be touching your hair but equally as important they have to know how to communicate with you, it goes far beyond the pretty photos they show you or the perfectly priced menu. Choosing a salon or stylist isn’t like ordering food from a menu or getting your house built from a plan it’s completely 100% a personal service that comes down to personality! 

    How do you choose the right salon & stylist?

    Well that requires thought and a little effort because as we said earlier it’s not just about photos and price so you should be visiting and talking to them before you completely trust a new salon. A great way to start if your considering a salon is a consultation, all salons in every part of the world will offer free consultations, it’s not new, it’s a sit down chat to discuss your hair. Choose the stylist your after make the consultation booking and see how you feel after the talk. The questions asked, the solutions offered etc. At times hairstylist will say they can do things from turn your hair from black to white in one sitting to give volume to the three hairs on your head, remember there is fact and fiction it’s your hair. 

    • Ask why
    • Ask how
    • Ask price 
    • Ask about upkeep
    • Ask about condition

    After that go away and ask yourself if this is the right salon for you. 

    You slept with who?

    So you think that leaving your hair dry naturally is better than using a dryer well let us explain why its not

    Although some stylists often recommend sleeping in damp braids to get beachy waves, turns out air-drying may be more harmful than blow-drying: Water causes strands to swell; over time, this could weaken hair from the inside out. In the study, hair samples that were shampooed and then air-dried for two hours were compared to those blasted at various temperatures. Only the air-dried samples had significant damage to the cell membrane complex, the cement that holds cuticle layers together. That’s not to say that dryers can be used without harm: As the temperature of the air increased, the study found, so did the damage to the outer layers of each strand. The healthiest option, if not the speediest, is to dry on the lowest heat setting, with the dryer held at least six inches away from the head.

    So instead of trying the easy braid on wet hair and trying to get it overnight, maybe its time to learn how to do it with a hairdryer and a large curling iron.

    How to get sexy af hair in 5 easy steps

    No matter how good your profile picture is on Tinder, if you want a second encounter let’s give you a few pointers on how to get that sexy af hair you have always dreamt of.

You end up looking in the mirror thinking holly cow I looked like I just got shagged. Well don’t panic here are some pointers to help. 

    1. Styling on dirty hair is best, if it’s oily then best to wash & condition it the morning of your night out. If you forgot or got lazy then use some dry shampoo because messy hair that’s oily just looks dirty!
    2. On dry hair using a large curling tong ( 32 inch ) vertically curl two inches from roots leaving the ends out. 
    3. Don’t be particular about sections it shouldn’t besectioning  challenge starting at the nape try to cover to top in 4 row sections. 
    4. After your done, head upside down and a little mess up using finger tips at the roots, a light spray of dry shampoo from approx 30-40 cm away and flip your head upright. 
    5. Pull and place a little optional you can add a little curl Creme on sections or a little paste but do not go crazy. 

    A few things to keep in mind are do not use too much product and once you flip upright don’t take it too much, this is not a pretty little afternoon tea with your girlfriends at the old age home. Your getting ready to impress!

    How to step off the plane looking ramp ready 


    Ever wondered how celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid to Kendal Jenner all step off a flight looking immaculate? We have decided to make life easier for you because no one wants to be going through customs looking like a drug dealer and go through those invasive searches.

    Here is 5 things you need to do

    1. Before getting on the plane, have your hair freshly blown out, use very little product just a serum that’s it ( too much product will create a birds nest at the back of your head)
    2. A low pony tail in a loose elastic to stop it getting frizzy or tangly. 
    3. A good neck pillow, apart from being good for your neck it will stop those questionable creases on your face you may wake up too. 
    4. For those with straight hair a braid is a perfect go too and will keep everything in order and you can take it out and with a light ruffle of your fingers can look HOT
    5. Things to carry on the plane, we all know we are limited so a 16ml bottle of “Cristali liquid” by Alfa Parf the liquid gold of frizz control plus “Reserection dust” by Label. 

    Just as they wake you up for landing get these two little saviours out and head to the washroom. A very light sprinkle of resurrection dust ( soaks up excessive oil and adds volume ) two drops of cristali liquid rub it in your hands and add from ends to mid lengths. 

    5 reasons to use Detergent free shampoo 

    It’s not new, but it may be new to you but Sodium Laureth Sulfate is the detergent found in a lot of shampoo’s as well as floor cleaners, engine degreaser and your kitchen detergent and can strip you color, dry your scalp and remove your keratin. 


    Before you get on the phone and start calling salons getting the cheapest color known to mankind or trying to get the best deal since land on Mars went on sale let’s just put some facts down to help you make the best decision. Because getting something cheap is not always about getting it done right, having the right products to maintain color and condition you may have to initially spend more however over the course of 1-2 months it is not that much more + your hair will look amazing! 

    1. Sulfate free shampoo cleanses the hair but will not strip color or dry out your scalp, which can cause hair loss and dry scalp. It lathers less but still cleanses perfectly. 

    2. Safe to use everyday and in fact we encourage it in a polluted city or area to remove any pollutants, perspiration on the hair and scalp. Not shampooing daily can in fact do more damage to your growth than you think, causing bacterial infections and dry scalp. 

    3. When your conscious of what your using you tend to use the suggested amount and not waste it so in fact it will work out cheaper than your no name or mass product ever would. 

    4. Condition of your hair dramatically improves as it is not causing excessive stress on the cuticle every time you use it. 

    5. Colors last longer and stay true to tone longer so your not left with brassy or golden hair which can look half done. 

    We suggest Alfa Parf shampoo which the entire range is sulfate free and has natural extracts to enhance shine and maintain condition.

    Why wearing a helmet can make you bald & not wearing one can kill you

    With over 100 million bikes on the road in India and temperatures that soar upwards of 45 degrees, perspiration can do damage to your scalp. 

    We have all seen guys wearing a scarf under the helmet in the attempt to soak up excess perspiration yet it’s not enough. Perspiration from the head can be more obvious than any other area of the body so it’s important to protect your skull not only from an accident but also from bacteria and infection. 

    When we perspire the moisture contains a compilation of water & electrolytes which further contain sodium, chloride, potassium, urea and calcium amongst others. The importance of removing this from your skin & scalp can be detrimental to keeping your hair. For healthy growth of  hair is determined by the quality of the scalp and leaving perspiration to dry of your scalp without washing it off will change the balance of your scalp in such a way that can cause hair loss, fungal infection, alopecia along with an entire list of things that will put you off breakfast lunch and dinner for a week. 

    What can you do to prevent bacteria?

    1. Shampoo your hair daily, use a Sulfate free shampoo this will remove any impurities from your scalp and maintain the right PH balance on your scalp for healthy growth. 

    2. If your scalp is prone to becoming itchy then you should on top of shampooing daily try a peppermint treatment by Label M which has peppermint extract and menthol which acts as a cooling  and an anti bacterial. 

    3. Add texture to your hair, this removes bulk, lightens the amount of hair, cools down your scalp and can make you look on trend. 

    4. If your wearing a scarf that’s fine just always wash & dry it before you use it again as this can breed nasty bacteria. 

    5. Do not add oil on your hair or scalp as when you add oil it acts as a conductor of heat and will increase perspiration and trap bacteria on your scalp

    Don’t listen to myth on shampoo causing hair loss or oiling as sadly they are not only outdated but scientifically incorrect.

    Hair color myths

    When we are born out hair & skin can be a different color, for some it can be dramatic for me my hair was blonde but it’s not now. Over time your hair and skin change color, it’s life. For you to look natural over time your hair needs to be slightly lighter. 

    There is more to colouring hair than just covering grey, or having one solid color which can look as fake as wearing a wig! Hair naturally will have various shades, multiple tones from roots to ends and different reflects in light that you will never be able to achieve out of a box!

    One of the most common issues we see with people colouring their hair at home is using the wrong color as well as a complete blanket coverage that leaves you looking like, well not as natural as you thought. 


    Some color myths answered

    Can you change your diet to stop your hair going grey? No

    Will colouring your hair make it grey? No

    Will colouring your hair make it fall out? No

    Should the ends be slightly lighter than the roots if I want it to look natural? Yes

    If your colouring to cover grey then keep in mind that the darker you color it the faster you will notice the white hair. 

    If your colouring for attitude or a fashion result then the rules are up to you!

    Best to do your research, consult a professional. 



    Quality in quality out

    Where can you find inspiration when your only seeing the one point of view?

    How can you grow and develop if your only listening to the one voice?

    You can’t 

    I know I’ve spoken about this before but I personally believe you end up morphing into what you see and/or believing it to be the best simply because you don’t have any other reference to calibrate it by. 


    I’m a little bit of an Instagram addict, not because I care what others are doing but to stay connected to what is happening in the world. There is so much information, inspiration right there in real time it’s bound to keep your battery like mine ( at 5%). 

    If your not on it or on it but only following your friends or posting selfies then you are missing out!

    Check out our salon Salon Instagram & Rod’s Instagram and stay connected. 

    Why it’s important to talk before we do it!

    Communication is important in everything we all do, it’s no surprise there but yet sometimes the unspoken look or the actions are exchanged thinking we know what the other is thinking. A lot of time someone will book in for service x and once you meet them the discussion unfolds and in fact the thing they booked in for is the exact opposite to what is needed. 

    As professional hairdressers, we have to take the time to get that picture or feeling out of the mind of our client and discuss it in a way to get the facts and reality not just do what we are told because a lot of the time it will give you the result you don’t want. Now clearly reading this sounds like hairdressers will be doing whatever they like, well no it’s about a discussion about what you want, what you desire, what hot hair looks like to you, what degree of styling you will do daily, what products you will use, how you will use them  and a lot more. 

    For us it’s never about selling product it’s about making sure you have the right tools in order to re create the same thing at home day in day out, so we both look better!


    With little conversation you will never be able to achieve something you truly love, it becomes hit and miss. 


    So before you get your next hair cut make sure your consultation is more than just a few words, a sign of a professional hairdresser is the consultation.  

    What comes out needs to have value! 

    Curly hair like a BOSS

    The biggest exit since BREXIT

    With the entire world occupied 24 hours a day between looking after people in the real world to attracting people in the on line world, be it for personal or business purposes we all have less and less time for the things we used to have ample time for just a few years ago so it’s no wonder why trends are changing. In order for us to adapt to the world there is always small changes that happen over time so we can survive, sadly some of us at times struggle with change and try and hold on to what we did years ago in the hope that nothing in our world will change.

    Well no matter what we do its changing and there is nothing you can do to stop it, embrace it because change is always good no matter how scared you are you have no choice but to ride it as a positive!

    With hair trends the move towards more natural and free hair started a few years ago and is now gaining momentum here in India with more and more people looking for ways to break free from getting their same blow out every few days, here is a few tricks to help get a more natural look without much effort.

    1. Comb your hair with a wide tooth comb whilst in the shower with conditioner in it, the conditioner acts as a lubricant and will prevent friction on the hair
    2. Once out of the shower, only pat do not shake- remember the more gentle you are on the hair the less aggravation on the hair so the less frizz
    3. Using a leave in conditioner, serum, moisture crème is all a good idea unless you have super fine hair, but remember lightly and not on the roots
    4. Sea Salt ( Label M is my go to for all texture styling ) should be used the moment you get out of the shower depending on length 4-6 pumps on roots to mid lengths
    5. DONT OVER TOUCH IT – Sometime we get a little over anxious and want to touch it too much, do not play with it, let it be and do not run your fingers through it, this will create frizz

    Give these tips a try and I am sure your hair will be looking more relevant and cool

    Hot hair comes out of salons not boxes

    It’s not a new request to get asked for DIY instructions, just like chefs get asked for the recipe it’s never going to be the same. Well for me anyway doesn’t help even with YouTube, maybe get you closer to getting the end result but there is always hidden issues. 
    After training for 4 years to become a qualified hairstylist you can never put that amount of info on the back of a box no matter how small the font. 

    Natural is the new black

    There has been a mass exodus on overdone hair that’s high Maintainence and just plain too stiff.  Good thing too, none us have the time and none of us want to see it anymore. 

    If your trying to make the transition it can be a little rough because no matter what anyone says you may feel as tho your hair looks a little messy.  Here are some tips and tricks to try. Hope it helps

    1. Use a leave in serum when the hair is wet, closes the cuticle and reduces frizz ( check out Alfa Parf Cristali liquid )

    2. Don’t blowdry,pat dry only and don’t be tempted to comb or brush once your out of the shower. 

    3. Until you get used to the look products are your best friend, it’s all about texture & control. Have a few in the bathroom like a leave in conditioner, sea salt spray and a paste or light creme styler. 

    Once the hair is dry a few pumps of sea salt at the roots will add movement and texture. If it’s getting a little fly away or frizzy try a light creme on the ends or a few pumps of leave in conditioner will sort that out fairly fast. 


    Now just because you want it to look like you haven’t done it, don’t think you don’t have to do anything! In fact you still need to be visiting the salon every 6-8 weeks it’s important to maintain the foundation and condition of your hair. 

    Products I would use

    Protein Spray by Label M

    Cristalli liquid by Alfa Parf

    Curl control creme by Label m

    Leave in conditioner by Schwarzkopf 

    Fast food & made to order Hair

    Your hungry and don’t really care about what your eating because your about 35 seconds from eating your arm then you pick up the phone and order the fastest thing. It’s ok we have all done it, certainly not the best thing for you  if your planning on it being a daily activity but once in a blue moon is fine I say!

    Now when it comes to your hair a lot of you ( yes a lot! ) choose your hair salon based on the best deal, coupon or promotion. Now whilst I know and it’s true for all of us that there is a budget for us all for most things. We need to understand the difference and the actual cost of a bad or under researched decision.

    1. A good haircut should last your 6-8 weeks, should sit in shape and be manageable for most of this time.

    2. A lot of people I talk to say they get a color every 2-3 weeks and hate being tied to the salon. I would say 5 weeks is ideal anything before that your color is either A. High fashion color B. Wrong choice of color.

    Either way your spending too much and wasting too much time, re asses the look vs time you are happy to spend in the salon.

    3. This is the most sensitive one which very few will admit. Most salons have a treatment or several treatments ( or maybe you understand if I say ” hairspa” ) that do very little to improving hair condition but are a great money earner. Yes it’s true a LOT are just as basic as a conditioner! A waste of time and money.

    4. You will be told to go for this or that, your hair needs it etc etc and whilst sometimes it’s true a lot of the time it’s not. Some salons will try to convince you to do services that lock you into visiting more regularly just to squeeze a little out of you more often which means your spend is higher.

    Now don’t get me wrong I’m not throwing stones I’m simply trying to explain that buying anything on price isn’t always cheaper. Besides all of the above there is obvious other factors to take into account.

    Next time your out shopping on price maybe Google quality then drop into the salons shortlisted and have an honest conversation about what you can afford and what look your after.

    Hair advice for your Wedding

    On Saturday I was talking to a room full of brides to be for Wedding Suttra in there master class, after I felt like I should share with everyone what it is that makes healthy hair or wedding ready hair depending on if your planning a wedding or just want to know what you need to do for healthy hair.

    1. A good hair care regime, this is a hair care plan. A shampoo & conditioner that suits your hair & scalp in your current situation, be it your hair may be dry, colored or damaged etc etc
    2. When you want to achieve anything it cant be done overnight, you need to plan for it, good hair is no different. Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks without fail, this will remove the ends that will be damaged and let you either keep it that length or grow it longer.
    3. Rebonding is not something I encourage in fact we don’t do it at any of our Salons for the following reasons. It’s incredibly dehydrating on the hair, incredibly damaging, gives a completely un natural result and limits your styling for months on end and many more.
    4. Whats the best shampoo to use? I was asked this by almost everyone and I always give the same answer so here it is…. Depending on your hair, the problems your experiencing and the desired result it varies from person to person. Just because of big budget ad’s or famous endoursements does NOT mean it is the best in fact it rarely does. My product of choice is Alfa Parf and Label M.
    5. Blow drying your hair, well this one is the biggest killer of hair happiness of them all. Anyone had a blow dry at almost any salon will know that a lot of stylists will BURN your hair into place rather than dry your hair and set it into place. Hair should not smoke, it’s not normal, if your stylist is making it smoke leave the salon and come see us J
    6. Global color vs highlights or balliage. Why global color is not cool is really simple, your hair naturally always have variation be it from stand to strand as well as from roots to ends, there will always be a variation, this makes it look natural. When you put one color from roots to ends on every strand it looks completly artificial and fake. You can achieve a better result but in a more natural way with a few changes, add a color thats one shade lighter and using the freehand painting effect it will look expensive and natural whilst covering grey.

    All in all if your serious about your looks then your hair needs to step it up and you have to put time and energy into it, you cant spend 1 dollar and 10 minutes on your hair and expect it to look like a million bucks it just doesn’t work that way. Investigate, plan and finish your look with the one element that is with you every single day!

    Prior Preperation and a little investigation will always get better results than trying to fix anything in the last few minutes.

     

     

     

     

     

    Yes, your hair can grow faster than you think!

    0e7dd50256bcd154230cc10f47703d75 (1)

     

    Are you staring at your hair screaming it does not grow any faster? Maybe, now you are blaming your genes or that new product you tried. Well, we all find it very frustrating when our hair doesn’t seem to grow at a normal space. Where you have been waiting months to get that perfect length, so you can try a different look, but your hair simply won’t listen!

    Let’s go through some easy steps to help your hair grow faster. If you have paid attention in your school you’ll know the benefits of a good diet, if you have done all your research then that’s great, but for those who have been too busy, let me simplify it!

    Have proper quantity of Omega 3 fatty acids, like salmon, avocados, nuts and olive oil in your diet. Protein also helps with hair loss, so make sure you are having eggs with your toast in your morning breakfast, a proper diet should have a good dose of Vitamin E and Vitamin C. It is equally important to have your veggies along with fruit in your regular diet. Yes, I mean it!

    Few tips

    Make sure you never use a brush straight out of the shower, as your hair is very brittle during that time and it can tear or break easily, use a wide tooth comb.

    Get your regularly trims to avoid split ends. Yes, ironically scissors can be of help in this case. If you don’t trim off the damaged hair then it will travel up and create more drama.

     

    Eat a balanced diet

     

    Get at least 8 hours of sleep

     

    Lastly, don’t stress so much, you’ll only lose your hair, and that won’t be of any help.

    The tomato soup is on the boil!

    Before you scratch your head thinking what the hell am I talking about, I will save you from all the trauma of the guessing game, we are talking about those dreadful days when your cousin TOM has come to visit (time of the month). Not that this phase is less than a short horror movie, were you’re not only bleeding your guts, but also going through the worst stages of mood swings (Scene 1 – you can’t recall the reasons that makes you mad enough to kill someone to Scene 2 –  when you burst out loud crying for the silliest reasons). We all have a fair share of the horrifying experiences, but what we all tend to ignore or maybe have not researched that much, is how much it affects our hair.

    Cramping pain was not enough; that now you also have to go through the monster zit phase with your hair looking like you just got hit by a bus (Perfect tragedy).  Don’t sulk, as we have a little info that might guide you through your and help you maintain healthy hair.  Let’s surf through the stages.

    Just before you start looking for the hot water bottle, you’re levels of progesterone and testosterone increases which leads to an increase in oil production of skin glands. Which pretty much explains why some of us look like we poured a bottle of oil on our scalp and our face, the best way to deal with this sticky situation is to use dry shampoo, and have frequent showers. The plus side, this is the best time to dye your hair according to experts, as having slightly oilier hair actually  helps to protect the delicate skin of your scalp from the chemicals as they sit on your hair.

    During the time when Tom’s visiting, the ideal way to get through it is by stuffing your face with chocolate ice cream, and taking endless hot showers, Lol. On a serious note, when it comes to your hair you’ll notice that your scalp will become particularly sensitive, which means you should avoid any treatment that can cause you further discomfort, e.g. when you are getting hair extensions, or you decide to go green, pink or fiery red (Ideal colour for your mood), or do chemical straightening.

    After the leek week you’ll thank god for the end of all the drama and excess oil production. Your hair might feel drier than usual as oil production of skin glands will reduce. If your hair is normally dry, you may need to condition it more often to keep them healthy. Even if we all have different types of hair, it’s still the best time of the month to do deep-conditioning.

    Overall, just pamper yourself and your hair, and we all have Netflix to fix the rest!

    THINGS YOU COULD BE DOING WRONG WHILE BRUSHING YOUR HAIR!

     

    78398b0e7ddd72afc71eb3e0bb4cbfbb

     

    How many of us have been brushing their hair 100 times a day?

    If yes, polite applause to your dedication, and sorry as no one can bring back the time you have wasted doing that. I know, we all love the idea of sitting in front a mirror and brushing our gorgeous hair like the Victorian times  (P.S. if you’re living with you’re bae, this habit would annoy the heck out of him Lol).  But the present generation hardly has time to eat their lunch, let alone brushing your hair like a ghost of the past. Plus, we are too smart in getting our facts right to fall for such habits. This age old myth isn’t just useless, but it could also harm your hair, brushing harshly and frequently is bad for your hair as it pulls hairs out of their follicles and it can possibly weaken individual strands.

    Method: (This will seriously help) We all are use to brushing our hair from roots to our tips in autopilot, did you know this can cause excessive stress on the hair leading to breakage and hair fall? The Right way to do it is to begin brushing from the ends, and slowly working your way up the shaft in sections. You can also use your fingers to gently de-tangle knots. Worst case scenario, if you have practically lived your hair in a bun for days, you might need a lot more time in doing that my friend.

    NEVER EVER brush your hair when it’s wet, unless you want to go bald. Wet is far more elastic than dry hair, due to which it is more fragile and can easily snap. If you have been getting heart attacks looking at your hair fall, this might be one of the reasons. De-tangle it before you wash.

    Don’t use paddle brush to de-tangle you hair, always use a wide-tooth comb and a de-tangling product to reduce hair fall. And yes, price matters in case of your brush, as cheap brushes have low-quality plastic bristles that can rip damaged hair at its weak points. Stop saving at the cost of your hair, instead, cut down on your junk food and get yourself a good brush.

    Lastly, just as important it is to clean your hair, it is also very important to clean your brushes regularly, at least once a week.  With time the bristles get clogged with stray hair and dirt. When you use your unwashed brush on freshly cleansed hair, you are actually depositing product residue onto your strands. Yes, for those who do it once a year, HEAR THIS OUT LOUD.

    Follow these simple brushing tips. Trust me; your hair will thank me later.

    Things your doing Wrong!

    No matter how foolish it sounds, everyone has tried  weird home remedies hoping that it will make their hair long, silky, thicker, and help to reduce hair fall. Honestly, we all need to stop picking things from our kitchen garden, fridge and the kitchen cupboards and stuffing it on our hair. Not only it is “disgusting” to be dunking your head with egg, fatty milk, honey, curd, etc etc, it’s ineffective. I don’t know if desperation has even let someone of you to put ‘cow shit’ on your head, and everyone avoids you for a week, let me be frank it’s NOT GOING TO WORK. Get over these MYTHS, and stop putting yourself through the torture.

    If you’re squeezing orange juice right now as we speak, then maybe it would be much more beneficial if you drank it than use it as part of your hair care regime! Keeping a healthy diet with proper amount of exercise is much better use of time then fussing over natural external remedies. Get rid of your medieval ways of making herbal pastes, instead start by breaking free from the myths.

    Regular trim makes your hair go longer – MYTH

    Hair grows from roots, not the ends so obviously it won’t help your hair to grow longer, what it will do however is help you keep your hair healthy without split ends, if split ends appear and you are trimming it regularly then they will be removed.

    One of my favourites is the beer myth, I don’t know what people think before washing their hair with beer, the only excuse to it should be when you’re shit drunk, and have spilt it all over your head.  MYTH

    Cold water is better for your hair – NO IT’S NOT

    In fact, cold water rinses may not efficiently rinse products out your hair as well as warm water, and it doesn’t make your hair shiny and silky. Rinsing your hair with hot water helps to open up your cuticles and pores, which is good while shampooing or conditioning your hair. Cold water seals your cuticles and pores, so that your hair doesn’t get damaged too easily, and protects the scalp pores from dirt, grease and oil. When it comes to your shampoo, the best advice is to use Paraben (chemical preservatives) & Sulphate free shampoos; as these chemicals cause hair loss and hair thinning because it deteriorates the follicles of the hair, and slows the growth of hair.

    I can go on and on about 100 myths but let me just say, it’s the 21st century people!!! No one buys a product without looking it up, then why would you be breaking eggs on your head believing in myths? So let go of your myths and save your time to go out for coffee with your bae.

    Blow me

       

    Balloons of course! 

    But if your one of those people getting your regular blow out and feel the dying urge to dictate step by step how to do it, because it is your hair ( which in fact is true ) you know who you are, admit it you’ve done it maybe even doing it as we speak it’s ok 😜

    The only reason I bring this up is so you get the change to change your look or possibly love your hair one day. Imagine if you told the chef how to cook every time they cooked food for you, would you ever get anything new? Would he/she give you alternatives or fix a problem you didn’t know how to fix? Chances not because you never gave them the chance. I can’t imagine eating the same food day in dnd day out or wearing my hair ( ok you got me I don’t have any ) but wearing your hair the same way year after year simply because you won’t be open. If you don’t trust the professional to do there job then chances are your either going to the wrong salon or you don’t know your options. 

    Step outside your comfort zone and get a blow out that if different to your typical look, it washes out!

    Your hair screams a lot about who you are as a person and your personality, I know for some woman there husbands have a lot to say when it comes to there hair ( not sure why ) but everyone is different I know from a very young age my father would not dare say do this or do that to my mother because its her hair and even today I can not imagine dictating my preference to my partner but different strokes for different folks. I think that hair is completely individual and has a seasonal influence, even small changes make a huge difference over time and help you evolve the overall look and vibe. I must say the biggest trend right now is undone hair that in fact takes a little getting used to when your styling but once you get the hang of it you wont look like a drowned rat, its all about the right products, the right placement and the right technique.

    Baby bangs have also made a come back and  can be incredibly sexy on the right face and the right personality, I have seen almost all face shapes with baby bangs and have to say on the right personality it really doesn’t matter to a certain degree. Certainly not a decision you want to take at the drop of a hat if your hair is super long as it will take longer than a few weeks to grow that out but if you have been thinking about it for a while there is no harm in giving it a shot.
