CUT YOUR HAIR

No fly’s on me

You woke up and decided that you wanted something fresh, we all say thank god! But just because you finally decided after 5 years of no change that this change is going to last you another 5 years!

Image via @Ugly World Wide

It’s cool to change things up, seriously but you should be doing it even in small ways every time you get your hair done. Change, evolve and have fun!

How to get your color tone to last longer and get more shine

So here is the secret to getting colours to last longer, hair to appear to have loads of shine and create hair envy!

Clear gloss, yep it’s a thing and it’s fairly simply. Can be applied with color, over color or on natural hair!

It won’t make it healthier, but it will make it look shinier ✨

Get yours done before the dry winter weather.

Babe you look stupid, please stop using these app’s

We all have someone on our following that is obsessed with these face smoothening apps, they actually think they look good still!

Newsflash, your in your 50’s or at least we thought you were but these app’s make you look 65 and desperate so stop it! Yes you, stop it!

If you hadn’t noticed the world has become a lot more authentic and anyone who knows you or you know them, let them see the real you!

Our door is open

We get asked a lot when are we open, then usually get told it’s 10 min too early or 5 min too late. We are open the following hours,

Monday – Saturday 10am – 8pm

Sunday’s 11am – 6pm

Now the reason we are open less on a Sunday is simply so our team can get some family time just like everyone else. We can open after hours and do open early, if it’s made prior and comes with a surcharge.

So if you want to get in before work, no problem but you better keep it!

You can either call 01141010011 dm us on social media, please note early or after hours appointments won’t be entertained for someone who has not been before & all no shows incur 100% payment

It says 3 min but I’m going to leave it in for an hour!

So you got yourself a hair product, run the bath and decide you are going to leave your 3 minute miracle treatment on for a 4 hour power packed boost?

Sorry to tell you but it’s not going to do anything more than it would in the specified time, typically 3 min max!

Oh sorry you thought the chemists designing the product had it wrong? They don’t babe, grab a fag or glass of wine and listen to some music.

I’m trying to grow it so why would I get a haircut?

Here is the thing, you want to grow it but you still need to cut it every 6 weeks!

I know what your thinking and if you maintain less being cut off then obviously it will still get longer, makes sense right?

What happens when you don’t remove split or damaged ends is that the split travels up the hairshaft and more is needed to be cut off. The frayed, Brocken ends make it look dry, out of shape and behave badly ( more than a 3 year old coming off a sugar high ).

Trim every 6 weeks, even if it’s half of what has grown or less, as your hair grows it will be healthy. Prevention is better than cure!

How to shop for new hair

Every now and then we get bored with our clothes, work, routine, life and everything just becomes bla. Its sometimes your perception of what you think versus reality but it still has the same effect, you feel flat.

That stupid saying that ” Change is as good as a holiday” is utter bollocks, give me a beach holiday and keep my hair looking the same anyday ( but I guess it has some merit, since it’s about escaping). If you have never had a change of style, semi drastic then you have never felt the immediate power boost to your inner self, that’s if it suits and done correctly.

There is a very simply rule of thumb we go by and it works 90% of the time, to be able to get you in the right head space if you are unsure of what change you are after.

Firstly understand you don’t have to know what you want, that we can work out with you ( a good hairstylist will ask a lot of questions, almost more than the FBI ). What you do need to know is, you want a change. Sounds odd hearing this, we know but often we get people who don’t want anything off the length, no layers, no bangs, no color change but desperate for a change. 😳

Susan, if you don’t change something we can’t change anything.

Drop in speak to us and let us work it out!

Count my fingers

Have you ever just wanted to give someone the bird🖕🏻?

Well we have, it’s no secret we do t have a filter when it comes to speaking our mind, don’t let it put you off in fact we think we are fairly nice people. We love what we do, we are fairly good at it ( according to us anyway ) and super honest. If you are searching for yes mam no mam then keep looking co’s we ain’t it. If you want awesome hair and happy to turn up on time and speak like a human, we all will have s great time!

If you think you can tell us how to do your hair then quite frankly it’s going to be fun but more than likely won’t end the way you expect.

Love peace and happiness to you all 🙏🏻✌🏻

What is it going to take for you to be happy

I have known so many people in my life that have had that knee jerk comment ” I will be happy when”!

Could be I will be happy when I’m on the beach, happy when you get the new job, happy when something is over, happy when you have money in the bank etc etc. I never got it, it’s like you give power to the situation and are going to be constantly waiting for something to happen before you are happy, which is kind of stupid.

No matter how many followers you have, what color the tick is or even if your on social media, we are all the same! Stop thinking you will be happy when and start being happy now! Sure you may have been screwed over, things didn’t turn out the way you hoped or even the right people all turned out to be wrong. It’s a moment, it’s not forever!

The most famous, well known or successful people I have ever met no matter what the end goal is, all say the same thing. No matter what you achieve, by the time you achieve it, you have already moved onto a bigger goal so you never feel like you have made it.

Destination happiness is a mystery destination you will never reach regardless of how well your last post fetched numbers!

If you have a long face you can not have long hair

If you take a look in the mirror and your a little honest with yourself, just for this exercise ok then you can go back to denial.

If your face shape is slightly long, oval or oblong you can not have long hair and it’s that simple. Look at the image below and try to get it, the hair can either enhance your face shape and make it look longer, or balance it out and make it look more balanced.

Your not ugly it’s just an balance between getting it right and having the hair you think you want!

Food that makes your hair grow

There is has and always will be some trend food that claims to make your hair grow faster, thicker and healthier and this one is nothing short of a miracle!

The reality is very different and whilst you have another tab open on hacks to increase your Instagram following, just like that tab too it’s all kind of crap!

Your intake is part of what determines hair growth but it’s also genetic, so I guess a cream, lotion or magic berry from the amazon isn’t going to do that much. There are 5 basic food groups ( google it ) eat from all the required groups daily and you will set your body up for success. Could be training for a marathon or simply wanting to be healthy, it’s the fuel your body needs to function at its best.

Supplements are ok to some extent but understand if something like “folate” helps hair grow, eating folate rich foods and then taking folate tablets isn’t going to double up your growth. Basic common sense, add some of that to your diet and eat healthy, not for a week and expect results it’s more like a lifestyle than a fad.

No food can stop hair fall, it’s like trying to stop your nails growing, you can’t.

Wash & Go

It’s no wonder we don’t get time to head to salons like we used too years back, life is jam packed and getting the basics ticked off is hard enough let alone “me time” in a salon right?

It’s one of our things, if you want to call it that. We don’t create a “blow dry” culture with the work we do, not intentional and yes we do blow dry’s but our cut isn’t meant to be forced fed dry or into place.

I’m sure a lot of you have been to a salon and had not one not two but maybe even three people tugging at your hair all at the same time, certainly not relaxing or good for your hair. A good cut should move and to some extent sit into place with little effort.

Gone are the days of overdone hair that is more like an extra from a old English black and white movie, it looks old.

Saying all that, if you eat your hair done, drop us a message on Facebook or Instagram or give us a call, promise you will enjoy it.

What filter is that you’re wearing?

We all have that one friend who drags all their photo’s through 4-5 app’s or filters to get the perfect mood. Life can’t be edited in filters, in fact some people don’t have them!

The one thing we found interesting, there is no app to fix your hair, a bad haircut is a photo killer and try as you might, it’s not going away!

Don’t be a filter hoe, get your hair done 🤭

Social media vs Reality

Sure combined we have approx 730,000 followers combined between brand and our personal accounts on social media and it’s by no means a large number in today’s reality and increasing move onto social networks for youth in India. There are a lot of users that just aren’t into it and only post every year once maybe twice without feeling a tight chest after not having posted for a week.

What is interesting is that we all post positive images and at times some will go out of the way, even country to make the feed look good. Not many will post an ugly photo and talk about how crap the day was or how depressed they are, it doesn’t sell right!?

We have now positioned ourselves and everyone who comes after us as a base line to “life is perfect”. I have experienced everything from it’s ok for you, your life is perfect or don’t worry it wouldn’t affect you. Now whilst I can easily say it’s not, I am blessed to have the life I have and it hasn’t been easy and continues not to be. Did we work for it, hell yes! Did we plan for it and work on that plan continuously until we got what we wanted, yes and continue to do it! Haven’t reached were we want to yet but can assure you we will!

The impression of always on holidays or only positive things happening is called filtering your outflow on social media and everyone does it! Your more likely to be attracted to a feed of positive and I’m fairly sure your not searching “depressive quotes” to use as your caption, unless your an attention seeker. Now social media is fun and if you want it to be fun treat it like that, used for marketing or showcasing what you do it’s an amazing tool that without a doubt has changed the game forever.

Fun fact for everyone, no ones life is that perfect, it’s what you make of it. Sure life is bloody amazing and I feel blessed every day I wake up, beautiful house, beautiful partner, self employed, great friends and food on the table but let’s be honest. That song after a few times heard is kinda boring.

Life is hard, it will hurt, you do need to work, nothing comes easy, you will loose at some point, nothing is forever and no one cares. Let that sink in for 15 seconds stand up and work your butt off to reach your goals rather than thinking about that private jet you should be buying. Although once we get ours, trust me will be posting pictures daily just for you haters 👍🏻

Want to go blonde?

We get asked a lot can I have ash blonde a LOT! So here are some hard facts you should know before ordering it like it’s a play of chicken tikka at the local dhaba!

No matter what “treatment” you think you have researched, there is a limit to what your hair will withstand and what you have had done over the last 6-12 months will partially determine if it falls out or not!

If your hair has never looked like the above photo, your lucky 🍀. If you want to go blonde understand if it’s done incorrectly this can happen fairly easily if it’s done incorrectly. So if your wondering where the worst thing can happen, take at look at this. That’s the worst!

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!

    The fade haircut

    Remember not so long ago, almost every guy walking around had their hairline cut so square and high it made the look like a Lego character. It was terrible, grew out in 2-3 days and looked hideous!

    Welcome the fade haircut! Tapered in from nothing it creates a very smooth tailored finish and can be done slightly longer so it’s not so short. Obviously the shorter the cooler it looks and the longer it will last. You can have a high fade ( like above ) or a drop fade ( which is only fading lower. Either way we love it!

    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

    What Ash blonde actually looks like and how to get it

    It’s a fairly common request ” I want to be ash blonde” typically like it’s ordering a pizza with little understanding what’s involved or if it’s even possible. After all that’s our job so we are cool with it, but want to shed some light on the facts about it.

    Now without getting overly technical the above photo is not on dark hair, the base color is lighter and has a slightly warmer tone, the highlights however are ash so the two combined give you what you are seeing not the individual “ash” color.

    The darker you are the more gold/red pigment your hair has & will throw off when it’s lightened.

    To get “ash” your hair must be lightened ( it doesn’t come out of a tube, it’s a process and not typically a short one either ) and to keep the hair in one piece would require 2-3 applications then toning. Sadly I have seen foils being done and irons or a hairdryer put over the foils to speed it up ( your hair will be fried, cuticle will snap off and I can guarantee it’s gold as your reading this. Bleaching hair you should not add heat, you can’t speed up the process! There is no short cuts only bad decisions and poorly educated people doing it or endorsing the wrong people.

    So can it be ash on dark hair?

    Yes but check out the photo above, you can see super light sections and some slightly gold right, that’s because it’s done over several sittings to get the hair light and keep it on your head.

    Now whilst you think you may want ash, chances are even after you get it ( if it’s possible ) you will have upkeep you will need to do in order for it to stay the right tone!

    Possible yes, easy no but possible and for those claiming you have ash, this is what ash actually looks like!

    So if you have had a bad color, give us a call let’s see what we can do to get your hair instagram ready!

    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

    How to control the frizz

    The rain comes and you are all suddenly on the Internet searching for a miracle ( sorry but 😂) the extra moisture in the air causes hair to go crazier than your first boyfriend but there is a solution but you probably won’t like it but here goes.

    Hair and the curl is a direct reflection of the moisture content of your hair, the more moisture the cleaner the curl, less moisture ( internally ) the more misbehaved the curl. If you want a product you most likely have already in your bathroom try a serum when it’s wet and again gently applied.

    Tips to help prevent frizz

    If your a hair maintained ( trimmed every 6-8 weeks regardless if your growing it or not ) this removes split ends that will themselves add to the frizz.

    If you are one of those people who flips your hair upside down shakes it, or wraps it in a towel on top of your head stop doing it!!! This type of mistreatment will only add aggregation to your hair once dry, pat it dry don’t rub it like you’re drying a wet dog!

    When you have the conditioner in each time you wash it ( and you should condition it every time, it closes the cuticle and prevents moisture escaping ) use a wide tooth comb when it’s in and detangle.

    If you get a blow out, chances are at some point you have experienced the hairstylist burning your hair into place vs gently encouraging it. Finish the blow out with cool air, this helps close the cuticle giving it shine and keeping the moisture inside.

    Use 2-3 drops of Serum ( we recommend Cristali Liquid by Alfa Parf ) when it’s freshly washed and again as it’s 90% dry

    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.

    Do the curtains match the drapes?

    People often may ask you if your color is natural and it’s a loaded question, do you say no and risk looking fake, do you say yes and fear if they can see a regrowth?

    Via Pinterest

    Nothing short of dropping your pants to prove it will stop some people, they just won’t drop it!

    Safe to say you if we have done awesome balayage on you, safely you can say it’s natural but be warned you may need to drop your pants to show them.

    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.

    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.

    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 💕

    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.

    Meherchand market is open

    While we have all seen, heard or experienced the recent escalation in the Delhi “cleanup” and while a lot of businesses have been effected ( over 700,000 ) we are still open. The market is open and whilst the floor size of a lot of businesses has been effected we are all open.

    Come visit Meherchand it’s got parking and is clean and easily accessible.

    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

    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! 😛

    Super foods to increase your hair growth

    Now this is almost a daily question, to the point at times to be honest we feel like just blurting out, ok so its cabbage are you happy! But yet we resist, not sure why when it would all stop there if we did. However the biggest issue we have right now is everyone wants to complicate things and give complex answers without justification other than to make themselves sound informed.

     

    Your body functions best when the five food groups are taken care of, when they are not, then there is a deficiency which will lead to shortage of essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to be fully functional. Now like certain things in life, we think we can postpone or neglect and simply pop a pill or pay a penalty, when it comes to our body we simply can’t. Yes will a supplement help, sure but its not the same as the real deal right!

     

    A balanced diet, a good amount of sleep along with the right water intake and excursive and your body will function the way it was intended. The moment you skip one thinking you know better, then wonder why things are not working the way you want, you need to look at your diet.

    Hair will fall out, this is life, can you stop it completely NO you can NOT, anyone that tells you they can is not informed. 90% of the hair on your head right now is active in growing whilst 10% is in the final stages and will fall out, no not all of the 10% will not grow back it will but some may or may not depending on a lot of other factors.

    Now sure you may have been trolling the internet looking for the right answers because you think your shower is full of hair and if it keeps going like this you will be bald, chances are your being a tad dramatic!

     

    Yes you are!

    If you want to put your mind at ease then come visit us and let us have a look!

    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.

    Rod Anker Salons phone number

    So we got told you couldn’t find our number, maybe your finger is Brocken, maybe your not following us on social media maybe your just lazy. But maybe, just maybe your right and it’s hard to find so here it is!

    01141010011

    Or

    011 410 100 11

    Or 0114 1010 011

    It’s all in the way you look at it I guess. I think we need to talk

    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!

    What haircuts suit guys that are thinning out

    It’s no secret that guys loose their hair typically, not always but it’s in our DNA just like the sun will rise and fall every day there is limits to how you can control it. What you can do is be aware of what haircuts will work best so you don’t end up looking older than you are!

    The interesting thing is that the amount of hair you have has no link to your manhood so stop obsessing over it that’s the first thing. A woman would prefer a guy who is respectful, loves life, looks after her and is motivated more than she will look for a guy that has a good amount of hair! Yep I know who would have thought right lol.

    Now what hairstyles

    The biggest mistake is most will leave it longer on the top as it thins out because they are scared that you can see through it. Big mistake as this typically makes it look thinner. Obviously there is a limit to how short is too short and how long is too long and that differs from person to person.

    The more you try to hide it thinning the more it will stand out. If you try and hide something from someone, put it right in front of that person and it’s not as obvious and most likely won’t see it. Hide behind a curtain and your almost sure to be seen.

    At the end of the day remember the density of the top may be thinning so best to not have a big variation between the density of the top vs the sides. If the top is 50% less than it was then the sides are 50% thicker looking so the top will stand out. Leaving it longer will make the top look thinner.

    Save lots of money on your hair

    Who doesn’t want to save money and have perfect hair right?

    Is here is the thing, a lot of people we find are doing treatments when in fact they don’t need to do them, we decided to tell you all about it so you can save some cash.

    Biggest one is “Global color” if your colouring then your hair should be slightly lighter on the ends and very rarely needs the color taken all the way through. It is not needed, causes more damage and waste of money.

    Weekly “hair Spa’s” well sorry to say your better off trimming your hair, removes the split ends and should be done every 6 weeks. If your growing it cut less than an inch and it will still get longer, if you leave it then you will need to cut more off and won’t be healthy. Get the right cut, from the right salon and your blow drys are possibly not needed Saving you money there too.

    Rebonding, smoothening etc well we don’t do these because we think they not only are a waste of money and ruin your hair, it makes you need hair spa treatments weekly because it’s that damaged. Work out a way to manage it, do a keratin treatment possibly.

    With the extra money you have now, go buy something fun!

    How to grow healthy hair!

    A lot of you think it’s a pill, an oil or some random secret that your grandmother passed down when in fact it’s fairly basic yet you may be doing it all wrong.

    Healthy hair is not hard to get, in fact everyone can have it if you follow these steps.

    1. Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks
    2. Don’t abuse it with heat
    3. If you shampoo you must condition
    4. Use a leave in serum or moisturiser
    5. Don’t put oil on your hair or scalp
    6. No food scraps or home remedies just shampoo and conditioner every 1-2 days. Yes daily is ok.
    7. No excesses be chemical treatments, color etc

    If you can do this then we promise in a few months you will love your hair like never before!

    When you’ve got the latest everything but your hair looks 5 seasons old

    Everyday retailers are spending millions of dollars to try to get your money, countless campaigns and images to make you think you need it!

    You go shopping and come home with bags and bags yet still feel a craving for something. You may find that it’s just you wanting to be ahead of the game or it may be you don’t feel good, it’s said that changing your look increases your self esteem by over 73% ( not sure who got this figure lol ) but it’s true. A new look may be just the answer.

    Dont waste money filling your wardrobe get a haircut!

    If you love your friends, come get a blow out before heading out!

    The weekend comes around far too quick and it’s here again so what does that mean?

    If you love your mates, then come get a blow out so when they are holding your hair back they won’t feel so disgusted 😆

    01141010011

    When all you talk about is size!

    Every single day, advertising use the terms, Biggest, fastest, certain number of outlets etc etc but have you ever wondered how this makes any difference to you?

    Isn’t it better just to be the best rather than the fastest, cheapest or biggest?

    We will grow but we will always maintain our vision and quality and that is by far the most important thing!

    How often to get get your haircut to keep it healthy?

    You waited 6 months to get a trim because you are growing your hair, every time you get it cut they cut too much off so whats the point right?

    b01397febfe0940e2cc90945dd15a460

    Well if each time you go and get your hair cut, if too much is being cut off then it means your going to the wrong salon. You have to balance your hair goal to the hair condition and leaving it for 6 months means you will possibly have more split ends than what you will cut off. To maintain a shape or condition your hair needs trimming every 6-8 weeks maximum. You remove split ends, keeps the shape right and keeps you looking sorted. If you don’t get it cut then the split ends travel up the hair shaft and the condition goes for a toss.

    Every hair on your head grows at a different rate, so whilst some grow slower than others ( slightly ) the hair will not sit or move the same way month after month, it needs to be maintained, if you want to grow it longer then keep in mind your average hair grows 1-1.5 inches per month so always cut less than that, if you want to maintain the length then cut what has grown.

     

    Fairly simply? See you every 6-8 weeks

    What looks best on your face

    Getting the right shape beard is the key to loving your man scape and if you get it wrong it can add weight and make you look a little odd. Its super important you get the right shape beard to bring out the best look possible!

    Rule of thumb is if you have a round face you can square it off with the shape of the beard, square face you need to soften it a little and round off the edges.
    So before you take it for granted and just grown it without thought or care, thinking your a lumberjack.

    Your beard is you manliness look after it and remember your beard oil.

    Beard + Cut, get the right combo

    Having a corporate job, you need to wear a suit but on the weekends you want to look like you’re the drummer in a rock band. The struggle is real!


    What you have to remember guys is that one element can be rock n roll whilst the others need to be more refined, this gives you options for a corporate meeting to bashing it out on stage. If you combine this with a suit and tie now you have a very individual looking versatile look that can’t be considered messy or corporate. The shorter hair gives you corporate and yet the beard gives you rock n roll.

    The right haircut and the right beard combination with the know how on how to style it and you’re ready to party!

    The latest Color technique is landed, Color Blur and its Hot AF

    You all like something new right and you’re probly bored of having boring bland hair? Well if you’re not then maybe now we have mentioned it you will be.


    Color blur is a technique of merging multiple colors together to shine on the curls to bring it to life. It’s fresh, it’s current and it is hot!

    Now how do you get it and how is it done is our thing and so you don’t end up trying to DIY we will stop right here as this is a process only for the pro’s but let’s just all agree that this hair color is not only Instagram ready it’s possibly going to give your friends major hair envy!

    You may know how to use google, we know hair better

    We had someone in the salon recently who’s hair was, well lets just say it looked like it had been through the menu of a salon and had everything done in the same day..literally! First off I think its a little weird that some people think a menu at a Salon is like a food menu and they should order everything and at least one of the items will be nice, it simply dent work like that peeps!

    eadfb337098ef480e10574c770a01f6a-3

    When we asked what was she thinking to do all of these things on the one day if at all, most of which she did not need nor should she have done, her reply was really sad. ” I said I wanted my hair smooth, shinny and a little life in the color so they told me I had to do rebounding, all over color with some highlights and a treatment with some layers” I was on holidays the next day so asked them to do whatever could be done, if it all could be done in the one day please do it because I want to look good for my trip. They assured me it could be done, all was well until I left the salon.

    Well no surprise, I guess it was more like do it all now please ( as it turns out it was more of a demand than a question and we asked and kept asking till we got to the reality ). Now its not her fault, the reality a lot of hairstylists are ruled by turnover and not results, if it was a results based business they would be most likely not doing half of the things they try and push rather fixing problems. We find a lot of times we end up not doing what is asked, we do less because it is not needed!

    Why are we here as a professional salon if we simply do what we are told to do even knowing it is the wrong thing?

    Sure WebMd has turned us all into Doctors ( well maybe just us lol ) but it is a far cry to an actual diagnosis or reality, just like reading a beauty blog saying something is good or perfect for everyone does not mean it is the right thing for you, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t but you need to sometimes be told NO.

    We will not do what you say always, its called life, we will do what is best for your hair and the look you are after!

    How to evolve your look, one month into 2018

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

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

    If your thinking of a fresh new do then give us a call and we can sit and discuss options or plan out how to take the step over the next few sessions so it’s not so dramatic.

    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!

    Your Instagram is cool but you’re as basic as a Parle G biscuit

    We are at an stage we’re more effort is put into having the coolest images on line and yet no effort into being cool or yourself. Brands say one thing yet they do another, people say they do this or that but in reality they only do that to get a Photo.


    The craziest thing is that your personality and what you are putting out doesn’t match in fact not even close, it’s a complete miss match and everyone can see it. Let’s say you’re pro cutting edge and want everyone to think you push the boundaries yet in real life you’re a conformist. Doesn’t work and there is something odd and we can all see it.

    No this isn’t about one person or one brand this epidemic effects a LOT and you have to assume it stems out of insecurity which is sad. We spend all our life trying to fit in yet we spend as much energy talking ourselves up saying we aren’t like the rest 😳

    In an age of social media being the way it is, we have to spend more time reflecting the real you rather than trying to show one thing and acting another.

     

    If you spent the same amount of time as you do selecting and editing your photos, on your life and work you would be a real rockstar!

    It’s really boring and disappointing to meet someone who seems cool but is as basic as a Parle J biscuit

    When your hair looks more like a horse tail

    You have been growing your hair since forever, you don’t know why but its just what people do no? Everyone said grow it long its sexy, now its longer than the question at the Government run banks and as lifeless as the service you will get once you wait.

    526023d388abed018fb566a71ca71eff

    Sure if you are planning a photo shoot on a horse then all is well with the world, however its become too long and managing it is far from sexy or easy. You need to keep in mind creating a fresh look will be either bangs or a few layers, without changing the color there is not really many other options once the hair gets this long.

    Things you need to be on the look out for are, keep the layers in proportion to the length or it will end up looking ratty ( is that a word even?)

    Make sure to asses your options carefully and get the right advice so the outcome matches your expectations.

    We fix discount haircuts 

    We get a lot of clients come see us, that have had a bad experience with their hair and desperate to fix it. Nothing more upsetting than looking like a freak of nature even if it will grow out in 2-3 weeks or in some cases 2-3 months.

    Should it be curly or straight

    Well they all say Keratin or rebonding so what should you do? Choose the right thing for you and your hair!

    Image via Pinterest

    Well prevention is far better than cure, so a few things you can do now to prevent being a walking hair disaster once it’s raining everyday.

    • Don’t underestimate regular trims, every 6-8 weeks regardless. This removes split ends and keeps the ends in the best possible condition.
    • Always use conditioner, a leave in serum daily. This will keep the cuticle closed and prevent moisture getting inside the hair structure and creating unwanted frizz.
    • If it gets wet, dry it as quickly as possible.
    • Keratin good or bad? Well depending on your hair condition and texture but it certainly helps relax the hair and prevent the monsoon frizz.

    Remember that a little preparation will get you through these crappy months. Using the right products and making sure you are not overdoing anything, the condition is paramount, look after that and your halfway there.

    Facts about colouring your hair white

    Ever woken up one morning and thought, today is the day I want to go white blonde, could be a break up or a mental breakdown either way you have decided that Today is the day! Well here are some things you need to know before picking up the phone!

    8195f8138f34fda785039d1cc01377d7

    Firstly it may not even be possible so calm down Sharon, it is not a color that it taken out of a box and applied wait 30 minutes then rinsed, its a lot more complex and involved and depends largely on your hair, current color, the texture and density of your hair as well as the condition. Before we do anything like this we always suggest that you have a long hard think about it because it not a 30 min job it in fact can take hours and hours and then still not be completed and you may have to return a few days later or even twice to get the exact tone. Its not cheap as it involves several applications of color and a lot of time.

    Things to think about before doing it

    • If your a guy with facial hair, will you be keeping the beard, if so you do realise the difference in color will stand out?
    • Depending on how dark you are naturally, you will see the regrowth within a few days ( yes within days as dots and your natural hair will look black against the super blonde hair.
    • You may need to get a toner ( a color to block the gold or yellow pigment ) within a week or even a few times a month as the gold or yellow pigment will appear
    • Your shampoo and conditioner WILL effect your color!
    • If you get tired of it, you can not just color over it and pretend it never happened, once it is coloured it is coloured and the damage or potential damage is there until it grows out.

    If you are still keen to do it then it may be time to come and have a chat with us in person to see if its possible and what will be involved, this is not a color that can be quoted over phone or email we need to see your hair first.

    Concealer won’t hide your BS

    We all have one of those friends or seen a commercial that claims if you use a certain product or use their product your life will be complete. We are the best, this product is unique etc etc 💤


    Or your friend has verbal diarrhoea that clearly doesn’t remember the stories they told you 3 min back that contradicts the current story.

    Well we don’t tell you 💩 in fact we have been told we are too honest, we spend a lot of time writing this nonsense to make sure you get it. No your life won’t be complete if you come to us, you will have better hair for sure, may or may not be able to fix a total mess but we will give you a plan too!

    Something isn’t adding up

    You can be searching on Tinder or looking for a hair salon chances are one or both have oversold themselves. Could be the Brad Pitt profile picture that gave it away or the fact that the headline said “ Best Deals”


    Then when you’re sitting in a dodgy bar ordering watered down local wine wondering how you got there or walking out of the salon with Hair more fried than a KFC family pack. It’s only when things go wrong we all can look back and say you must have been stupid to believe it in the first place.

    Do your research, check on line, check off line and understand if it’s too good to be true, chances are it’s not real.

    When your hair is your outfit

    Wear it with pride they said, long hair is sexy they said, short hair is not feminine they said.


    What rubbish, they also didn’t tell you if you’re sitting on the potty your hair will end up falling in it, or when you do a hair flip it will possible suffocate the person behind you in the que did they.

    Long hair can be sexy, short hair can be sexy it all depends on how you wear it and with your wearing it with the right attitude. You don’t have to fit in to look beautiful or sexy it’s an attitude and the way you carry yourself.

    Why you need to choose the right Salon

    Let’s be honest, life is about managing expectations from the moment you can remember what you think should happen and what actually happened is usually very different. Just think, a night out recently did it go the way you intended? Does your partner show you the same attention or affection? You go to the gym for a few months and expect to be ready for a marathon? It’s all relevant.


    Now heading to the salon is not so different, you may be going because you look like a drowned rat, the color may need freshening up or you may be just a little flat and need a pick me up.  Whatever the reason it’s important that the hairdresser you go to can understand what it is you need. Will you know? Possibly not and that’s why a well trained hairstylist is part hairstylist and part therapist.

    I think it’s important to know that it’s normal to have expectations and whilst some are achievable done are so far fetched as those luxury Instagram Travel posts.

Could be you forget who picks up after you until they stop doing it, your loved one who stops kissing you goodbye or your husband who never says thanks. The list is endless! Appreciate people, situations, diversity and opinion you only get one life!

    If you’re wondering how this relates to hair, we get a lot of people who do every chemical treatment known to mankind done, wait till their hair is past repair then expect somewhat a miracle. Yes we are here and at times the last line of defence but you have to ask yourself, do you really need that service? Is it really worth the damage it may do? Do the pro’s outweigh the con’s and if they do they by all means go ahead. Your hair is made up of dead keratin and once the damage is done and you have crossed the line, there is not a lot that can be done other than cutting off the most damaged hair. Sure you want to keep it long possibly but if it looks like a wet rag, taking some off is the only option.

    We may just well be the only hair salon in India that will not do something if it isn’t in your hair’s best interest no matter how much money you have or how many ways you ask, if it’s going to ruin your hair then then answer is no!

    What’s the right shape for your beard

    Getting the right shape beard is the key to loving your man scape and if you get it wrong it can add weight and make you look a little odd.

    Rule of thumb is if you have a round face you can square it off with the shape of the beard, square face you need to soften it a little and round off the edges.
    So before you take it for granted and just grown it without thought or care, thinking your a lumberjack.

    Your beard is you manliness look after it and remember you beard oil.

    Your Instagram is cool but you’re as basic as a Parle G biscuit

    We are at an stage we’re more effort is put into having the coolest images on line and yet no effort into being cool or yourself. Brands some one thing yet they do another, people say they do this or that but in reality they only do that to get a Photo.


    The craziest thing is that your personality and what you are putting out doesn’t match in fact not even close, it’s a complete miss match and everyone can see it. Let’s say you’re pro cutting edge and want everyone to think you push the boundaries yet in real life you’re a conformist. Doesn’t work and there is something odd and we can all see it.

    No this isn’t about one person or one brand this epidemic effects a LOT and you have to assume it stems out of insecurity which is sad. We spend all our life trying to fit in yet we spend as much energy talking ourselves up saying we aren’t like the rest 😳

    In an age of social media being the way it is, we have to spend more time reflecting the real you rather than trying to show one thing and acting another.

    It’s really boring and disappointing to meet someone who seems cool but is as basic as a Parle J biscuit

    How to get the perfect grey hair color!

    For guys it’s a very common request, George Clooney’s grey hair and from the ladies it’s either just remove the black color I want to go natural or I want ash grey hair. So what the hell is the right info and what do you need to do?

    We sat Rod down handed him a coffee and asked him.

    This is what he told us

    For guys the reality is if you want the color like George Clooney you have to wait, pray and see if it happens naturally coloring it like this won’t happen ever! You can get an overall grey but will be every strand of hair the same color not a natural effect.

    For the girls, firstly you can not use a special product and remove the coloured hair from your head, leaving it natural again once it’s coloured it’s coloured. Only solution is bleaching it however that doesn’t make it natural it only makes it all bleached and besides that may not get the desired level if it’s got multiple layers of color.

    Want coloured ash grey hair? This can be done but takes time & money to do it right and maintain it. If your hair has color in it, you will struggle to remove it and you may end up with a brassy result that needs more work to remove but possible.

    When your mouth says lead singer but your hair says Chartered Accountant 

    Let’s be honest most guys are lazy and we are fantastic at lip service but lack a lot on the follow through.


    It’s like you tell everyone you take no prisoners and your the fizz but reality is your more fizzle and most likely sit at home on a Friday doing crosswords than out painting the town red ( although good for you If your a crossword buff 🙊 )

    It’s a problem when your haircut says Chartered Accountant but your mouth says lead singer in a rock band 😳. There are more than two options, because you think that there is either a side part or an undercut is the first of your woes, then you have those of who can’t decide end up doing both and shaving a line to cover all bases.

    Rod Anker judges for Pantene & Vogue 

    Pantene were on the search for the countries strongest hair for a get together with Priyanka Chopra and who else but our own main main Rod to help find the right heads of hair!


    From Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Mumbai the finalists are now selected. There was vast variation in hair quality throughout the country but if I could offer everyone the same advice is regular trims every 6-8 weeks says Rod.


    This removes any split ends that are appearing and will help you maintain length and condition.

    What does it take to keep your girl like a princess

    Now no one can say it’s one thing and it rarely is, there will always be annoying Habbits that you or your partner will not love but a little conscious effort goes a long way.


    Putting the seat down after going to the can isn’t you being sensitive, holding the door open is respectful but not going to do it, thinking of her before you when out shopping is expected, remembering when it’s that time of the month and making sure her favourite food is at arms reach is normal. So then what the hell can you do right?

    You can start with all of the above, everyday that’s a good start but it’s like this if you have found the one, what would you to to make them the happiest person on planet earth? Answer would be anything I guess but it’s not about sacrificing anything because it’s about being the best person for you as much as it is about being the best person for her. Clean up in the kitchen, pick up your crap, make sure you get a haircut before being told you look like a homeless baseplayer, not scolding her or irritating each other when your tired. It’s a lot of thing and nothing all at the same time.

    If you can’t text back on time, or leave work early to make sure you’re there for her when needed, are you really doing everything possible?

    It’s not about expensive gifts, it could be but rarely is, it’s not about your job or your background it’s about the way she will feel around you. It’s about you being the best and giving her the freedom, encouragement  to blossom and be her best.

    Life has restrictions that we know but it’s about a synergy and rythym you both have together that works. Guys pick up the slack and step up to give all you can to treat her like the process she is.

    Hair is our focus

    It’s not rocket science that when you concentrate on one thing, you get good at it compared to trying to be the best at everything and end up being average. We do hair, everything to do with it and it’s all we do, we are known for it and we are fairly good at it let’s just say that much.

    Looking for a Men’s hairdresser? 

    There are options for almost everything and yet searching on line it can be like finding a needle in a haystack. The only upside being that us guys get our hair done every few weeks, but unless you are ready for a constant repair & fix you may never have the hair you deserve.


    If your looking for a salon that knows what they are doing and has the trained team to deliver then congrats you found us. We don’t do a little this and that, we specialise in hair!

    Phone 📱 011-41010011

    Hey little man it’s my hair! 

    Well can’t really say we are impartial when it comes to hair, we like different because well that’s what we do, we have seen all kinds of hair and a lot looks the same after some point. What does excite us is when someone is so sure of who they are that no matter what someone will say they will do whatever they want.


    It’s true some guys like to push there opinion on some woman and tell them what they like, as if it’s there right or something not sure. We say it’s your body do whatever makes you happy, if you want green hair then it’s green hair you must have, you want it short then cut it short.

    Life is far too short to be trying to keep everyone else happy when at the end of the day the only person that really matters is you, if you make you happy you can make others happy but you have to be happy first.

    10 times when getting it cheap is not the best idea 

    First of all we focus on cutting hair, not coupons and we spend all of our free time training on becoming better at what we do. It’s no secret that we all like a bargain in fact for some it’s a sport, a way of life. For some things you can afford to be frugal and some things you just can not.


    Now we are not saying be stupid or careless with your money because that would be silly, we are saying there is a time and place for everything.

    For example if your buying a certain product, same brand & model then you can call around and get various prices but if your buying a service or skill you can not compare prices ever!

    Let’s take a mens haircut which you could possible get for 30-40rp underneath the local tree 🌲 now you can spend this or if you had some extra cash you could end up spending 5-6,000rp with the difference being the end result, the finish, the ambience and the overall experience. Now if you’re buying Parle G biscuits and you buy them under a tree for 10rp or from a shop at 40rp then this makes no difference ( as long as storage and use by date is in order ) so this is a time you can bargain until you’re happy.

    A service based product varies so much from place to place and by service we don’t mean just simply a nice looking place, it’s about having the right skills set to be able to deliver the promised service. So this can hardly be a sit at home on the phone calling around to get the cheapest price before booking yourself in. If this is your way of looking for the place to go It is not the smartest way to find quality at all.

    Times you should not bargain

    • Doctor
    • Dentist
    • Plastic surgeon
    • Hairstylist 
    • Crematorium 
    • Buying medicine
    • Buying petrol
    • Defense attorney 
    • Laser hair removal
    • Tattoo parlour

    So if you want the best try searching for the best rather than searching discount and you may be surprised that instead of having to spend twice as much to get something done then you will get it done right the first time, saving you both time and money.

    The hair coloring masters

    When it comes to coloring your hair it must be a tailor made color not a “pick the number on the box” type service because it’s simply not. Some people will still ask “what number is that” which our standard answer is none of your business 😳


    Getting the right color is about knowing what color you have currently, the overtone you want and the undertone you currently have. If you mixed paints at school and could manage hundreds of shades of brown from 2-3 colors then you may just have a basic understanding of color. Doesn’t make you a hairdresser and certainly doesn’t give you the skills to be coloring your hair but you get the basics.

    What happens when your travelling can you get a box color then? No you can not this is not going to be a standard color, it’s 100% unique for you so it’s not a box color type solution.

    So if you are after color then there is only one salon you choose, the salon that is as brilliant at getting the perfect neon faded pink to the most subtle natural ash brown hair we go this!

    How many fingers do you use?

    The moment you wake up you’re texting your friends, boss etc you’re on Facebook busy tagging your friends in funny AF memes like no generation has ever before.


    It’s a fact that majority use two or 3 fingers only to text and can almost doing without looking. In the early 90’s workplaces around the world went into a frenzy with court cases of repetitive strain injury from a sudden influx of typing and now today typing is not only essential for work it is a form of communication for life.

    From ordering food on line, booking a cab, inviting friends over or biking a flight you will surely be typing.

    Physiotherapist’s recommended you use a soft round item to squeeze to elevate the muscle tension or build up or lactic acid.

    Now you have a purpose to squeeze those bundles of fun

    Fresh AF

    There is so much going on in all our lives it’s honestly hard to keep up, boo sits down for a coffee date and barely gets eye contact looking at each other’s phones. We want to be connected so 1 hour off line causes some to get anxious. Work demands a 22 hour day as no one gives a toss about what is realistic, we all have an agenda, we all have selfish self serving addictions.

    Fig & Maple

    Yet no matter what we always make Sundays our day, sure there may be a bit of work thrown in but it’s always about being our day.

    What habits are you feeding are they positive or negative?

    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 😜

    How to spoke a fake!

    Work and personal life has always been a struggle and we read all about balance but it’s about blurring the lines more than balancing we think. If you love what you do then it doesn’t feel like work right?


    Now if it doesn’t feel like work and doesn’t look like work,chances are it will be the most positive space to be in ever!

    Getting the right hair & beard combination

    Having a corporate job, you need to wear a suit but on the weekends you want to look like you’re the drummer in a rock band. The struggle is real!


    What you have to remember guys is that one element can be rock n roll whilst the others need to be more refined, this gives you options for a corporate meeting to bashing it out on stage. If you combine this with a suit and tie now you have a very individual looking versatile look that can’t be considered messy or corporate. The shorter hair gives you corporate and yet the beard gives you rock n roll.

    The right haircut and the right beard combination with the know how on how to style it and you’re ready to party!

    Still looking for the strongest hair in India

    Yesterday we were in Bangalore for Pantene & Vogue searching for the strongest hair in the country who will meet Priyanka Chopra.


    Well in Bangalore there was a fair share of strong hair for sure but we must give some hints to keep your hair healthy.

    • Regular trims – every 6-8 weeks
    • Always use conditioner after shampoo
    • Don’t overdo chemical treatments.
    • Careful using heat tools

    Simple on purpose 

    Uncluttered and not overdone has more impact than trying to do a little this and that, at least we believe that.


    Many people end up with a miss match of this and that and before you know it, your hair is a dogs breakfast. Remember the one easy fact, the more you do, the more it looks like you have done aka the more it can look forced.

    We believe in keeping it simple.

    Why your weekly hair spa is a waste of money

    So you’ve destroyed your hair by doing every chemical treatment on the planet because, well because you were told it was needed now they tell you “Mam you need a weekly hair spa” then have the nerve to tell you if you buy 5 you get one free. Like oh we ruined it but to fix it we can save you some money 😫


    Problem is if your hair is that fried no amount of treatments will bring it back to life. Prevention is the best treatment yet very few value the word NO when it comes to getting what you want. Now sure there are products that can artificially rebuild the structure of your hair to some extent and will most definately help but a hair spa? Nope it’s basically conditioner in a jar labelled “hair spa” which is a superficial product and won’t do anything much after you have walked out of the salon.

    Some salons put you under a steamer, telling you it opens the cuticle and helps penetrate. What it does is swell the hair by heating it up causing the cuticle to feel smooth until the swelling goes down. Yep you think wow it feels better but in fact the next day after you wash it, it’s exactly the same.

    Healthy hair is hair that has been looked after by proper applications of color, regular trims and good hair care regime. Just because a salon offers a treatment or service doesn’t mean you should do it.

    The truth about your new bright color

    No matter what you do or who you talk to, there is a common thread that there is a certain level of expectations not being met. Now this ranges from salary, sex life, boyfriend/girlfriend goals to hair color and travel. Can’t really help you with the rest but want you to be aware of the following.


    We have social media flooded with images of hair color, some real most photoshopped to the verge of unrealistic with most clients thinking it’s fairly easy, when in fact it’s a 12-16 hour color job but they want to be booked in be finished before lunchtime on a Saturday. We have hairdressers photoshopping colors to enhance them, clients using 3-5 filters to get that wow factor to enhance their feed.

    We recently had a client with coloured black hair, wanting to have “just a few white highlights” then once we explained the process and the time involved almost looked like we were lying 🤥 it’s not a color you just slap on and that too on black hair.

    Some people want instant and have very little concern for healthy of hair, Maintainence or anything as long as you can get s few good photo’s for your feed. Coloring hair is not as simple as choosing a box in our magical back room and putting it in a bowel, it is based on your hair history, condition, target color and the texture & strength of your hair.

    Asking your friend what color they used and doing the same will never work it’s completely different from person to person as every single head of hair is not only different but has been through different things so it has to be treated separately.

    If your thinking of a color change and looking for something that’s going to “Pop” come in and discuss it first to see if it’s realistic and what would it involve not only to do but to maintain. After years training we kind of know how to do color and what’s involved in achieving the best.  We love talking hair and will always tell you fairly easily if your expectations are more like a Disney movie than reality.

    Diwali parties are next month

    The year seriously just vanished already working out Christmas plans and hearing all about Diwali cards parties it’s crazy!

    How to make appointments without downloading our App

    Soooooo many companies are making app’s in order to gain attention in the tech space yet don’t get the fundamental downside of anyone actually downloading let alone keeping it on their phone. We all have space issues with reports of some people taking photos on average of 30-70 per day it’s only going to be a few weeks before it’s a choice between Instagram, google maps or the useless app you got from a pizza joint or a hair salon.


    We saved you the drama, we don’t have a “App” we have inbox on both Facebook as well as Instagram which you already have and possibly are not going to delete it anytime soon 🤓

    We also have a phone which is kind of cool, it’s old school but it works too, choice is yours 😝

    What happens when you wrap your hair up 

    There is convenient then there is hatful sadly these two are the same thing so unless you want to improve your hair quality stop teasing g this now!

    When you hit snooze you had no idea that it would cause your hair to break off or be pulled out, I guess it was more about sleeping for another 3-5 min cos your tired AF


    When your hair goes from wet to dry it shrinks, so when you put your hair up and wrap a towel around you are stretching the hair tightly. Your hair dries slowly which make it get tighter, the hair pulls tighter and will snap at the weakest point. On top of all of this it’s been wrapped upside down in the complete opposite direction to how it will sit. No it won’t make it full it’s only putting undue pressure on the hair strands which will cause it to go frizzy, break and be dehydrated.

    After the shower, pat dry with a towel and don’t shake it or put it up.

    Sun protection for your hair

    The sun although without it we would all die can cause damage for your hair and skin if exposed to too much, it can also change the color of your hair turning it the completely wrong shade so you need to make sure your products have UV protection as well as cover up when possible.

    Now if your white you want to have some color so you may need to wear a hat the times your out, even if it’s for a short time the excessive heat causes the internal moisture of your hair to evaporate and dry up. If your still hung up using oil as a “natural” remedy for dry hair then keep reading!


    Even though you wash out your oil ( which does nothing btw ) small molecules are left behind and over time build up. Oil + Sun heats up the hair drying it out faster and burning the oil onto your hair making it shinny yes, but burnt, damaged, rough and dry! Don’t do it!!!

    Using fruit and vegetables the right way 

    It’s not uncommon for us to be asked which food we should eat to make your hair grow faster, look healthier, shine etc etc and some so called experts will give you the most random new ” power fruit ” to make you rush off and buy it by the kilo.


    The reality behind healthy hair is a balanced diet with the right amount of each food group. Sounds too easy though so it mustn’t be totally accurate there must be something else. Nope it’s really that simple, if your skipping one of the food groups because your a vegetarian then dose up of the loss with other fruits or vegetables 🥒 or nuts from the other groups!

    Healthy hair can not be bought it happens when you are conscious about it, visit the salon frequently and don’t do things that endanger your hair health!

    You wearing sports shoes doesn’t make you a runner, her wearing a see through top doesn’t make her easy!

    I find it odd that some people think if a woman wears something transparent or a little exposing that all of a sudden she is saying she wants sex from you or anyone. That’s as stupid as a fat guy wearing gym gear thinks it’s going to make him ripped or suddenly fit!

    You wear Nike running shoes does that mean your a marathon runner? You wear ripped jeans, are you suddenly blessed with a rockstar voice that can make you famous? You wear ripcurl ( a surf brand ) can you surf? You can buy a race car doesn’t mean your suddenly a formula one driver.

    The answer is no you can’t do how on this planet does any guy think just because a girl/woman wear something she feels good in has anything related to her willingness to have sex? It is completely stupid!

    Guys, please understand if a girl wants to wear clothes that she feels good in, be it sexy or just plain confident it has nothing to do with anything else other than her. It’s not your business, it isn’t saying anything it’s just clothes she likes to wear.

    Respect her for her being a person who has a brain, personality and the same choices you do. Don’t be a wanker and judge, it will make you look like the biggest looser on planet earth!

    Rod Anker Salons review 

    Have you ever thought about reviews and wondered about them being legit? Well if you haven’t then you possibly should because it has been know that a few dodgy things going on, sit back and get ready to laugh your guts out!


    So things like some salons writing bad reviews on other salons, writing good ones on there own 😂 yes on Facebook as well as other websites.

    The best way to find out about a salon is 100% not the right way unless it’s a review from Vogue, Elle or Cosmo it’s really not worth wasting your time or risking your hair is it?

    Reviews have changed just like a lot of things have, it’s the digital age so checking out s restaurant, salon or hotel is now all you need to do is go onto Instagram or Facebook and search hashtags it will make you second guess yourself or possibly satisfy your decision on where to get your hair done.

    Getting a bad haircut although we all joke it’s 2 weeks between a good haircut and a bad haircut, the reality is complete opposite.

    The worst haircut for Indian Men

    One size doesn’t fit all however when it comes to the undercut it seems everyone believes it’s perfect for them when in fact it’s possibly not the most flattering and here is why!

    Now let’s just start by saying you were born blessed with more hair on you than a typical football team has in total in the west so well done! 

    With your face shape you need to make sure the shape hair your left with does not make your head look bigger than it is or you will be left looking like a cartoon character or like your 5kg fatter than you are. Now genetically Indian men have larger foreheads so the top of your hair needs to be flatter or you will make that area look bigger, the bigger the hair the bigger your forehead will look!


    If you make the top flatter, the entire look of your face now becomes thinner and more youthful!

    See 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻


    Less tired looking and lost weight!

    Give it a go and don’t wear and undercut because it probly isn’t for you.

    The IT girl cut of 2017

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


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

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

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

    Being connected isn’t about what your Uncle does

    It’s still a common phrase “being connected” and most of the time it’s used we all know what it means. Daddy’s uncle works for xyz or whatever but in fact we couldn’t care less unless he wants to get a haircut.


    Being connected to us is about being connected to what’s happening, who is doing what, who, where etc but not in a creepy way.

    If your not following us on social media then it’s about time you did!

    Guys because your guys we know you meant to get your haircut on the weekend but forgot 😜 so it’s Monday and we open at 10.

    Some hair facts 

    With information so accessible it’s still a global mystery who some people still think some of these things work. We’re going to focus on washing your hair, rather than bombard you with all the right information in one go ok!


    Some people say the more you wash it the more it falls out?

    Absolutely false, nonsense and completely opposite in fact if you don’t wash your hair/scalp enough it can cause hair loss. 100% safe to shampoo daily.

    I use an anti dandruff shampoo and if I try to stop using it my scalp becomes so dry why?

    Easy, most so called dandruff shampoo is so full of harsh detergents that your scalp is over cleansed, removed from everything so the moment you stop and change shampoo your body which has been working faster to produce oil to combat the drying effects from the shampoo not almost overnight the dryness returns.  Kind of like a natural marketing trick to keep you hooked. Stop using it and for 2 weeks wash it daily and it will get better and your body will Adjust.

    Natural oils good or bad?

    Ok so this one we have heard it all, your body produces oil, sebum oil ( it’s not coconut or almond oil not olive oil ) now this is for no other reason than to create the right ph on your scalp,the perfect combination of oil ( sebaceous oil ) and water (perspiration). Is it good to have overly oily hair? NO Should you not wash it to get the oils to protect the hair? NO. The scalp needs daily shampooing especially in areas the temperature doesn’t go below 25-30 almost all year.

    Oil attracts dust and dirt and it gets stuck to it, then the heat it becomes bacteria and now you have a itchy scalp. Most people who get an itchy scalp could be cured if they washed daily with the right shampoo but yet happy to keep scratching because either their mum or a blogger decided to promote their mothers ideas vs actual facts.

    If you want a healthy scalp you need to know what is myth and what is real!

    South Delhi Aunties please read 

    We have spoken about it until we ran out of breathe, yet a lot of you have a “in one ear out the other” way of listening so we thought sooner or later it may stick but we should keep trying. Maybe we should just simply say your hair that big makes you look fat or your hair looks aweful but we decided not too name names.


    Your face shape determines if full hair or “bounce” should be worn. Just because you life south of the city centre doesn’t mean you should be constantly kissing the air, have hair bigger than your farmhouse or be wearing it like a wig you bought at the export market.

    For goodness sake people if you want saving fromlooking back at your perfectly hastaged photos and not wanting to barf up last nights dinner call us now I’m serious!

    Searching for India’s strongest hair with Priyanka Chopra

    The boss has been busy touring the country with Vogue & Pantene searching for the strongest hair. Travelling around India the team is looking for strong healthy hair.


    When you’re looking for strong hair, it’s hair that isn’t over treated but yet has the basic elements of strength. Hair care has a lot to do with it along with how you have been taking care of it! Pantene are looking for the strongest heads of hair and the winners will be featured in a video with Priyanka Chopra.

    Good luck girls and check into Vogue & Pantene for more info!

    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

    What happens on holidays stays on holidays 

    So you jumped through all the hoops, visa’s, tickets accommodation, time off work, getting the house and car sorted etc etc now it’s time to pack. By this point you could not be bothered but obviously you need to or you will be wearing the clothes your wearing the entire time or have to deal with the climate change and suffer!


    Your hair should only need the basics and if your on holiday then your hair should look like it and you shouldn’t be searching salons to be getting your blow out, your on holidays! So here are the essentials you need to pack

    • Shampoo & conditioner
    • Wide tooth comb
    • Leave in serum
    • Hair scrunchie and hair elastics.
    • Dry shampoo if your camping
    • Travel hairdryer.

    Now all your wet products put the lids on and tape the lids closed. Place in a zip lock bag then inside a plastic bag and tie it up, no one wants that all over your clothes.

    Remember what happens in a different zip code stays in that zip code, enjoy!

    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.

    High fade vs drop fade

    We talk about the fade cut a lot for guys hair so we though it best to show you two variations of a fade.


    The one on the left is a high fade, the one on the right has hair left lower past the crown and is called a Drop fade.

    Nothing really complicated just two variations of a haircut for you guys that is awesome!

    Positive life

    We are as much to blame for getting down to talking about work we thought it good to talk about goals and life. From all the people we have met, all the famous people, successful people, beautiful humans it’s clear that the people who stand out have one thing in common!


    Belief in themselves, after all if you don’t believe in you who will.  Everyone on the planet is born with the same things, it’s what you do with it and what outlook on life you have that defines you.

    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 😝

    Looking for the coolest place to get your hair done guys?

    Now not blowing our own trumpet well I suppose we kind of are but we have to say judging by the cool people we know, it seems to be the trend that this salon is it!


    So guys if your looking for a new haircut or just plain sick of the hair you have then it’s time to give us a call!!

    We are in Meherchand market and parking is easy!

    Open Sundays 11-6

    Is making a mixed tape back?

    Remember when you liked someone, you thought they were cute and you wanted them to love the music you liked, because you never for a minute people could have different tastes and you just wanted to be romantic and cool 😎


    Well access to Music being what it is not only is a mixed tape not going to cut it, although it’s a cool thought if you can get your hands on both a cassette as well as a player ( other than you 😜) besides that guys understand considering a swipe left is all it takes now you really need to have your game ready and not rely on a mixed tape to get you over the line.

    If you like our music in the salon and you will, let us know we can cut you a thumb drive ( see it’s not as cool ) or share our playlist.

    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.

    Color protection

    It came & went in a few short puffs


    Well there is hope and no it’s not medication it’s simply a change of approach to how your looking after it.

    The basics have never been more important so here goes one more time!

    • Sulfate free shampoo, several brands have them and they bubble less but maintain color better by not stripping it.
    • Always condition, yes fine thick thin or massive hair. Condition.
    • Don’t use ANY OIL! yes none! It coats the hair, dehydrates and will pull color out.
    • Use a leave in moisturiser if your hair is dry or damaged.
    • Don’t over do it, if the ends don’t need color don’t do it! Global color is a once every 4-5 months thing if that!
    • Rebonding is terrible for your hair condition don’t do it.

    Anything else? Always pack protection 😝

    When no matter how hard you try to find it you just can’t locate the spot

    You have searched in the dark, googled it, read every bloggers opinion ( and they have a lottt!) you asked your friends, you read all the magazines you could but yet no luck to find it! Siri keeps telling you not to ask such questions.

    Are you set for a life of misery? Are you never going to experience that omfg feeling? Is the promise of tomorrow going to never happen?

    No it’s ok chill out here it is

    The spot to get awesome hair of course! Click on Rod Anker Salon for our location pin, which will be not such a mystery for hot hair now!

    Your words say it but your actions don’t 

    You know I’m right but when it comes to things like New Year’s Eve typically we all have the best expectations for the following year and promise ourselves to do XYZ yet several weeks or months later it’s the same old shit and nothing has changed. You’re sleeping past the alarm, skipping gym, work home balance has gone for a toss and you are no closer to that overseas trip than you were 12 months ago. You promised yourself so much yet it’s the same thing, why?


    Well humans are lazy 👽 it’s a fact and we can find exudes for almost anything and pass the blame to almost anyone because we are creative 😂

    Your hair needs Maintainence, every 6-8 weeks regardless of the length it needs trim or refreshing the color. If you plan it ahead of time chances are you will forget too even after a reminder call. Put it into your dairy, ever 6 weeks regardless.

    You don’t appreciate most things until the day you can’t have them anymore, or they leave. Do t wait and think about it, plan it

    When you’re no longer relevant

    It’s kind of amusing that things have changed so fast it terms of what’s cool that you have some people trying to be cool and failing terribly #luxlife and all the other hashtags that will make you want to wet your pants. Why try and be someone your not? Why are they putting so much effort into being cool?

    Via @taxcollection

    It’s because in the space of 12 months the old school ways are now no longer relevant, the people who used to be opinion makers don’t get the new way people communicate, dress or talk. The trick here is about being authentic vs putting on a front, new age will not bother they are more comfortable being themselves vs keeping anyone happy other than themselves.

    Be authentic, don’t lie to yourself and don’t wait another minute to take control of what you actually want.

    How to get Independent hair

    Well firstly Happy Independence day, we thought about it and pondered what to talk about then we thought no one really does everything themselves we all rely on someone else for something don’t we? You’re sitting in the ( what you call ) parlor getting your hair burnt to a crisp, with your hair smoking from the torture of inexperience yet you feel your in control.


    Sadly your not, the fact that you think you are is a sign your hair will eventually and soon I suspect either self combust or simple fall off your head who knows.

    Try learning true independence with your hair as far as blow drying it will make your life better and your hair will thank you.

    Stop being lazy, it’s easy sure but it is ruining your hair

    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?

    S & M….hair

    What you do in the bedroom is your business and we certainly are not going to judge you.


    But if you have to either plaster your hair down with hairspray or worst put rope on it to keep it looking good, then the chances are that you have not experienced your hair done right ✅

    Cutting hair and wait this might be a surprise to some of you is a combination of art and science. It’s not a text book exam once you learn one cut you’re good to go, in fact every single head of hair is unique so it is learnt and perfected over a long time with extensive training.

    Is the salon your going too, have this level of understanding? 

    Naked taking a poop barbie 

    Yep you met 12 months ago and each time spent at least an hour getting ready, choosing the perfect outfit, the right underwear, spraying perfume in all the right places and you ffwd 12 months and your here 😳


    Sure it was a thrill at the start and now your super comfy, it’s not a bad thing in fact it’s that happy place everyone in the first stage wants but once you’re there you wonder what happened. It’s a case of the grass is always greener, guess what it’s not.

    Imagine you get your hair cut into a FAF new style, you love it, you keep touching it, you take photos of it, you tell all your friends about it, you blow daily ( sorry had to add that in 😂), you only take it out when you’re looking on fleek. A few weeks later it’s up in a pony tail, only getting washed a few times a week and you let it air dry. Same right?

    Well the two have one thing in common, we get used to it and once we have seen it a few times you take it for granted and seek a new thrill. That’s wrong, it’s not the thrill of change that needs to change it’s the way you look at it and the way it’s presented. Change things up, don’t get in a rut, keep altering things, grow, cut, go places and try new things constantly.

    Sometimes the one thing we could spend all our life looking for is right in front of us.

    Speaking out of experience even naked taking a poop this barbie is limited edition 😻

    Is your cheap & fast blow out causing damage to you hair?

    When you’re planning your week, there is typically the last minute thing that comes up or simply your hair is not going to survive another 10 min let alone another night sleep and till tomorrow night. You have never been the one to do it yourself, your a princess 👸 and the most convenient salon is quick, 3 min from your house and always free besides the fact that it’s only 300rp.


    But the thing that is creating convenience and is cheap as chips is causing damage that is costing you more once you stop and take the time to actually get your hair done properly. The real issue is trying to do something  fast vs the right way and it is always a trade off but it doesn’t have to be!

    Things to watch out for while  your blowing out  your hair!

    • Practice doing your own hair, like a quick fix type styling, could be braids, top knot to a full blow out it just needs practice.
    • Don’t let anyone burn your hair when blowdrying it, burning will feel like they are pulling your hair between the brush and dryer. You will also hear the dryer working hard to set your hair on fire at that point.
    • It gets ironed or tonged way too much, the irons are set on too high and gone over your hair too.
    • Use a serum or leave in conditioner.

    If you put in a little work then it’s easy to have good hair.

    What pollution is doing to your hair & scalp? 

    If you live in India chances are it does for several reasons, could be the pollution, all the treatments or services you are doing that you don’t need or it could be a build up of pollutants from the water.


    Because of the population there is possibly always going to be s pollution issue, unless we all change our garbage Habbits it will take several lifetimes ( do your bit to recycle and compost and not litter before you complain about it )

    But we are here to talk about hair so let’s, we see a lot of people doing this or that service simply because it’s on offer or told to them they need it when they actually know they don’t. Not sure why but they just go for it thinking, what harm could it do!

    Too much of anything is not good! If you’re getting color for example, putting it through the ends every few weeks is a sure way to end up long term with hair that’s frizzy, dehydrated and split. Then once it is in bad shape you do a keratin treatment in the hope that will make it shinny and smooth.

    Now separately they both are true but when you do them both, one to fix what the other has done ( due to improper application ) then you are asking for problems and there will only be one solution…… ✂

    So how can you make sure your hair stays healthy and not need constant SOS every 6 months?

    • Only color regrowth, the ends can be 1-1.5 shades lighter than roots this actually looks natural.
    • Don’t do rebonding if you have any color in your hair
    • Only do keratin if you need it, it is not going to add moisture it relaxes the internal structure of your hair, giving you 30% less frizz and curl.
    • Trim your hair every 6-8 weeks
    • Use a SLS & SLES free shampoo daily followed by a conditioner.
    • Do not apply oil, ever. This build up sure it makes it shinny but dehydrates the hair
    • When blowdrying don’t over heat the hair, use heat protection products and only iron lightly
    • Protein or moisture treatments after every color to balance out the moisture.

    If you feel the water quality is causing your hair damage or just want to be sure, rinse your hair in filtered water prior to getting out of the shower.

    Vogue wedding show master class with Rod Anker

    When you’re planning your wedding 👰🏻 anywhere it’s always a huge task to coordinate everything and forever you have imagined things a certain way. Well that’s exactly what Rod spoke about early today in his Master Class with Vogue.


    Hair needs preparation for the day or series of events that should get your hair ready to look it’s absolute best. The lead up or prep tie should be 4-5 months to make sure the color, length and condition is perfect.

    When to do color prior to the weddding?  3-4 days prior

    When should you get it cut? 1-2 weeks before

    When is the right time for keratin if your hair requires it? Should be 2 weeks before the wedding

    Can you add shine?

    Yes you can do it several ways, add a clear gloss as a color, these are a specific color that is 100% clear it’s only job is to add shine, does not cover grey at all. Also there are shine sprays which are great but be careful as they can make it look oily if over done.

    Extra fullness?

    You can backcomb or use padding for sure but also there are viluixinh powders that create a grip for the hair that adds volume. Several products are available here in India both Label M and Schwarzkopf have them.

    When you want your hair to be front and centre! 

    You’re the type of person that doesn’t know the meaning of subtle, you are a straight talker and really don’t have time or be bothered with games you just love being the centre of attention.

    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!

    So you are a social media Influencer? Surprise it’s not a job title GIRL! 

    Seems like the word “influencer” is the new buzz word everyone wants to add to their bio like it’s going to somehow give them the ability to be a shape shifter or an ability to change people’s buying Habbits.

    Being labelled this is not your role it’s others role to label you and not your bff sitting at home watching re runs of 90’s sitcoms tagging you in memes 5 times per hour saying OMG I Iove your feed, girl great click!


    You’re a person with an Instagram account, its completely different if a company or a respected publication or brand labels you, but sorry to be the bearer of bad news adding it on your bio because you want it is like adding “Millionare” because one day you want to be rich.

    Sadly you sit in the back of the car, even shouting at the top of your lungs for the driver to change lanes, he doesn’t listen to you so how on earth could you influence others. If you post some nice pictures ( or you call clicks) that’s great, you also write in your posts that ” sorry I haven’t posted in a while, been super busy” sweetheart no one is even bothered. We are surprised that there are some that buy followers and likes and think that by doing this in some strange way will make them famous or successful, when there is nothing more than surface face which lasts about 3-7 seconds after someone stumbles on your profile then realises that that ” Click” you posted looking hideous has thousand likes and the link in your bio is a dead end.

     

    Try being the best at whatever you are doing, rather than trying to scam success, chances are if its meant to be you will become famous at what you actually do, unless thats nothing then your in trouble!

    This is not aimed at one person this is based on so many adding this word into their Bio.

    Don’t choose a salon blindly guys

    Choosing the right salon is not something you should be walking off the street doing without checking them out first!


    With 80% of our business coming on line through social media we find it’s super important today more than ever to be connected, to our actual consumers. We talk about real issues, we don’t oversell as this is not who we are as a brand, if you are better off with a service we will tell you, if not we simply won’t. After all isn’t it better to be honest?

    If you are looking for a new salon guys then take direction from your x girlfriend and start stalking to find out more Our Instagram Our Facebook ( because we know you need a little help the link is there 😂)

    Or call 011-41010011 and have a chat with us

    Raw pussy? 

    Well that certainly would not taste good so no matter how pretty it may look in this photo, it’s wrong on so many levels!!

    Now the reason why I bring up sushi 🍣 cat 🐱 is simply to say no matter what pretty little picture you have saved from trolling on line, no matter how many of your Gucci handbag lovers say ” Oh my god you totally should”  do this or that with your hair, if we say you should not then the answer as much as you don’t want to hear it…. you must listen!


    Visit us for the first second and third opinion!

    Why your color will wash out, the facts

    You invest time and money on your hair so you must maintain it between salon visits to make sure it doesn’t wash out!

    What are the causes of color fade and how can you prevent having a faded washed out color!

    There are two basic principles why your color will fade,

    1. Condition
    2. Home hair care

    Now they both have various factors to consider so here goes.

    Condition

    Could be you have tried to do something to your hair that it simply can’t take or should never have been done and now it’s damaged beyond repair. Once the cuticle is stripped from the hair there is no way to fix it other than scissors, certainly most color won’t hold and wash out super fast.

    It could be you have rebonded over and over again and then coloured which was the last chemical your hair could take, could be your doing global color over and over again which is drying the hair out! Global color is not needed every time in fact not even recommended, should be ONLY done when you are changing the color.

    Hair care 

    What you do with it once you leave the salon will either keep the color the way it is meant to be or wash it out quicker than it took to get it done. Shampoo can completely wash out your color if it is not for your hair, you need a sulfate free shampoo and you must be using conditioner every time as this closes the cuticle hence protecting the color molecule from being exposed to the environment and fading.

    If your hair is suitable a leave in serum and/or a leave in conditioner may also be needed.

    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.

    It’s not going to cut it itself is it? 

    If you have just given up on trying because it’s just to plain hard, then it’s time to invest some time on finding the right hair salon for you and your hair. It’s like saying nothing fits you’re over it I’m not wearing clothes, you won’t I hope so you have to sort it out.


    Obviously you need to find a salon that is capable of doing what it is you are after, not just promises but actually can do it. Let’s be honest tho almost all may just say yes yes but at the end of it you’re left looking more like a oh no than a yes yes.

    Drop into any salon and have a talk about your hair, this does not cost money it’s free and you can get a good sense of the people while you are there.  Ask as many questions as possible and don’t book anything just take a card. Go home think then decide.

    Just because you have had a few bad experiences the right salon is out there don’t give up! 

    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.

     

    Bad Boy hair and what it looks like

    Not everyone wants to be in a band, have a sleeve full of tattoos or drive a Harley Davidson ( well the last one isn’t true, who doesn’t want to drive a Harley!) Getting bad boy hair is not as hard as you think if you just don’t over think it!


    Obviously the cut has to be done right but let’s just assume it was, styling bad boy hair is easy because it rely’s on typically one product, keep in mind guys don’t do complacated.

    Texture is important and blunt cuts won’t work, having texture in your hair is 80% done in the cut and the rest is done in choice of product. Typically a matte paste is the perfect product on dry hair, never blow dry only use your fingers when drying followed by tee spoon in your hand rubbed together then place firmly over the entire head then shake and run!

    Netflix & Chill

    I doubt many people actually have paytv any more or if they do they hardly watch it, it’s outdated and boring. The shift in the consumer pattern was so fast in reality that it has changed the way we do almost everything now.


    Doesn’t matter what your talking about the spin off from the shift impacts everyone. Whilst you don’t have a paytv subscription and only watch Netflix and have Apple TV 📺 you most likely don’t have to put up with those stupid Tv commercials anymore right?

    So how do those companies sell there products to you now?!

    How do we stay informed with News & Current affairs? Most people filter out who they want to stay connected with on social media and are able to still main an up to the minute connect with the ones they are interested in. The quality of content that your exposed too just took a sharp right and is not going back it’s only going to get better!

    NETFLIX & CHILL? We say yes please!

    Looking for head in all the wrong places

    If you have been one of those people that think that getting your contouring game to level 10 whilst still ignoring your circa 2000 hair that has a bigger regrowth that the Manhattan bridge span, time to keep reading!


    So much attention is put on getting that new shade of red lip gloss, the one that is slightly different from last season, this one is like a tiny more purple red, not too much but so slightly and will change your life! Omg order it now! If you buy that one you so need the three which are all almost exactly the same, but it’s cheaper to buy them all in one purchase so you have to right?

    I guess it will make your look complete because all those youtubers tell you almost every post it will do I should. 

    Meanwhile the last time your hair was giving this level of attention was when you were 6 months old and your mum used to brush it after a bath.

    Wake up! 

    Ditch the new makeup purchase and get your hair sorted out! It has a bigger surface area than your lips! Hair first lips second

    We talk about them but don’t do them

    Omg so what all do you do?


    We are what’s called a Hair Salon, we do hair cuts, blow dry’s, color, keratin and because we are not a ” everything under one roof” saloon, parlour or what ever you want to call it we are bloody brilliant at what we do!

    Do one thing and do it perfectly

    Hair makeover

    You would have almost done it, gone for something new something fresh but you just don’t know what it would look like right?


    Chances are that if you have ever wanted to do something dramatic something has stopped you unless you are super convinced either in yourself or by your hairstylist.

    We believe that it’s not about selling a style, it’s not about pushing our opinion, it’s about discussing options and eliminating options and finding out what it is that not only suits you but you can manage yourself. It’s one thing to want to look like xyz but your hair will never do it when you get home and you’re alone trying to get ready to go out.

    We believe that a haircut has to feel right for you as well as suit you do it takes a lot of discussion to find out and it’s not just about cutting the hair, even after it is cut we need to make sure you know how to manage it daily.

    So if you’re not getting this then it’s about time you visited us! 

    Hanging with your crew, it’s Friday 

    They say birds of a feather flock together, well believe it or not sometimes your mates don’t have cool hair.


    If you love your friends you should treat them, we feed pigeons right and they end up crapping all over our clean cars so why not treat your mates!

    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. Good or bad like it or hate it, it’s the way business & life is. 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!

    5 butter naan 1 full plate baal ke saath table no. 5 pe lagao!!

    When it takes as long to get breakfast as it does to grow your hair to the floor!


    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.

    Thanks Jason for the translation

    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.

    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.

    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 yourse
