We are the best, they said

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


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

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

Thin crust please

Fridays call for a night out and take away!


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

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

Is you pillow breeding bacteria?

You use it everyday, for some only a few hours and most 8-10 hours a day yet you most probably only wash it once or twice a week.


Safe to say you should wash your pillow case every second day, using a satin pillow case is also recommended to reduce friction on the hair which can cause damage.

If you are putting your head on the pillow ( which is most likely ) you must make sure it’s clean or bacteria will breed and cause scalp irritation.

Hair tattoo facts

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


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

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

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

Your daily dose of color 

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

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. 

Be your version of you

Wear this, wear that

Do this, do that

Don’t talk to this guy, don’t be friends with that guy.

It’s ok to have an opinion of things it’s another to tell people what to do, after all it’s your life. Strangely it happens every single day, kids are told what jobs they should have, what to study, what friends to have and yes in 2017 who to marry and where to live. Now without getting into a debate on all of it we think your hair is our battle so it’s important we fight the good fight. 

The way we look when we see our ref election changes the way we feel about ourselves,  I’m sure your friends and loved ones want you to have a healthy self esteem right? 

Have a little fun with your hair, could be mild or it could be dramatic but think of it as an extension of who you are, it’s showing the world your personality on your head. 

How to keep the love from expiring

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


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

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

Solution 

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

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

Hair is an art

Hairstylist’s have now been given the term hair artists for the obvious reasons. 

They create shape, color all using a natural product to sit and move in a certain way to create a visual form. Using various colors and textures all with the goal to create a look, that with the skill and various techniques allow you to re create it daily for several months. Now that’s Art!


The outline may be the same but what you do with what’s inside the lines defines you!

Money but no honey

In a world in which we all are born thinking we have the right to do or be anything we want and you do! Some things money just can’t buy but there are some things it can too!

There was a doctor, a great doctor, not the best doctor but he was good ok very good. He wasn’t so busy so he advertised offering half price operations, good operations, maybe the best, hard to say but they were good. 

Public perception was simple and in fact reality, his skills turns out we’re not the best, in fact not that good even a fair bit less than good sadly. His work needed to be discounted, after all it’s a 50/50 chance your going to get through his procedures, which is still better than the 100% without maybe. 

When it comes to hair, we believe to give you the best we can not cut corners or it’s only a matter of time before best goes to good then basic then basically no good!

We believe in providing great hair, for a set price that enables us to do it not only today but to be able to train and grow to do it not only next time but next year. Cheap hairdressing is just that and we want to be delivering quality not cheap. 

How a new look could keep you out of prison!

Imagine your out, some serious shit goes down and the description given for the offender is so basic it could be 99% of the population. Hope your following it so far, the trick is being unique or you may be pinned with something that you didn’t do so a new look is as much for you as it is for your safety!

Please make sure if your going to do the wrong thing that you visit us afterwards.

How to sort through the crap

When it comes to marketing we all are inundated with ” we are the best ” type marketing. I know when looking for anything be it a product or service I look into everything before making a decision.

How can you trust a company who says they are leaders but behave like a  mum and pop shop?

Today our lives are under the microscope 24/7 you comment on a photo on line and everyone can see it, you eat out and everyone knows what you ate so it’s super important that more effort than ever before is made to not only stand out but be in the position to deliver what you say you will do, because its one thing to say your the best in fact its easy but its another to be able to deliver it day in day out.


In today’s world we have to rely on our own research in finding out things, stuff and and with the internet we all think we have the knowledge of a Guru however experience will always carry more weight than theory so only trust professionals when it comes to services.
