So it’s not normal but I guess that’s ok because either are we, we do hair bloody well too ( just saying ) but we don’t do this and that, like mani pedi, beauty etc etc and we choose not too because it’s best to do one thing the best than 5 things below average. That’s our opinion anyway. Let’s us concentrate on only hair.
Now with a few shops being effected by the recent sealing in Meherchand market we wanted to let you all know that our favourite place 10-10 nail spa is back and reopen at shop 91.
Act your age they said as if there is rulebook on what to look like at set ages, you should act a certain way or dress a certain way like when your older you shouldn’t be looking fun or cool, you should be boring and set in your ways. What a load of rubbish!
After al haven’t you put in the hard work and conformed for too long? Its when you get older you should be caring less right, after all you have done the hard yards it should be time to have some fun right?!
So before you decide to be a boring old hag, why not have a little fun with your look and hair and be the person you always wanted to be!
I often wonder what motivates some people from trying to push products onto you, is it they have that big margins they make so much money from selling it? Is there a bulk deal they had to buy 2000 of them now they need to offload? We don’t really get it, our thought process is simple, if you are better off with it then we will tell you, if not then we don’t bring it up.
So if you come in and you find us talking non stop about the best places in to get. A pinacolada then its most likely your hair is fine, either that or someone has a hangover. After all we are in the business of doing hair and making you look the best possible not making a few rupees on filling your bathroom with unwanted or product that is not needed.
So your tired of getting your natural black color and have a lot of grey so the regrowth is visible. Well take a close look at the below image, then scroll down and keep reading…
It looks natural right?
Because it is, its really that simple and if you have been colouring your hair for a while then there is really only one option and that is let it grow out, the mix of white and your darker hair will create that grey type look itself by default giving the appearance of ” Grey” when in fact it is dark and white combination.
Obviously natural hair looks natural and if you have been trying to fool yourself for years that everyone thinks your 25 and yet we all know you are 45 it may be time to start thinking of how you can look better and be more low maintenance.
It has been told to us that “google said it was possible” a few times and with everyone focusing so much energy on getting a DIY option there is no wonder there is so much work for us fixing hair disasters. With even the most unqualified salons paying a large amount of money to Google so that they appear on the search its no wonder why there are certain things that can not be trusted.
If you are looking at doing something stupid, don’t choose to play with your hair yourself or you may be spending the first half of 2018 growing it out or trying to fix it.
You may have grown up eating meat and two veg type food ( boring and a little basic ) or in India Dhal & rice. That doesn’t mean that there are not more options out there, because there are endless possibilities.
Just like your wardrobe, although obviously any hairdresser will typically lean towards black, hair color options are far greater that a base color and a few highlights. It’s your blank canvas that expresses who you are and your personality.
You don’t have to be outrageous or OTT it just has to be an extension of your personality.
Why wait, give your hair salon a call and give your hair some color!
Seems most of the country is having a sale, 50% off or end of season sale yet is that one or two new items in your wardrobe going to give you a fresh new look?
We can already hear you say “yes it will!” But chances are within minutes of your squad seeing it the shine will be gone and back in the wardrobe it will go. The sad reality is when you get something new that you love you can’t wear it daily or it risks looking like it’s the only thing you have!
Now a fresh new cut or color will have a longer WOW factor both externally to your crew as well as give you that “I feel great” feeling 24/7 no matter what you wear at a small portion of the outfit your eyeing off. Therefore it makes better sense to get yourself into the salon than heading to the mall this Monsoon!
Do you do it, will it suit you, How will you style it……
Now depending on exactly your face shape and texture, movement of your hair what will work the best so the only way we can tell is by seeing your face and having a chat! Save your fav bangs drop in and ask us
Our cutting technique makes sure the hair behaves the way it is intended.
So we get asked a lot about how to grow healthier hair and even though we know the science on how too, we thought it a good idea to share some basics on our bodies and how hair is grown ( and it’s not like growing basil 🌿 or tomatoes 🍅)
What you need to have healthy hair
A balanced diet, yes your body requires a combination of all food groups to function to the. Best it can be.
The idea of eating crap, not sleeping properly, not drinking enough water and thinking you can use certain products to fix what’s happening internally doesn’t work.
Regular trims, yes every 6/8 weeks regardless of what length you have.
Good products, that are for your hair right now, not the same products you have been using since 1987 because you mum bought them.
Sulfate & parabin free shampoo as it contains less chemicals which strip the scalp and can dry it out.
Don’t over process your hair just because it’s on sale, you can’t stock up on your hair color. Only do things that are needed, don’t over do it.
Hair spa and oil massages are not going to fix much if not anything at all. If that’s your go too then you need to come see us to explain what oil does on your scalp and hair
Hair growth can not be altered, hair growth and the speed comes from within and is almost the same for everyone on planet earth.
Fashion week is doing the rounds globally with every designer on the planet each season trying to reinvent and evolve. Hair is exactly the same and it has its season to shine and then it’s done.
So what’s new in hair I hear you asking? It’s kind of a loaded question as it is largely dependant on you, your hair and your comfort zone. Just because g-string bathers are in doesn’t mean it’s for everyone right?
What’s trending in hair
Balliage is still current but make sure it’s done seamlessly. Goal is a smooth transition of color and little to no lines.
Solid colors or blocking is in, no not black that doesn’t count unless its clothes then always choose black!
Natural curl is big and has been for a while, we love it. Careful not to over do color or let anyone do keratin treatments plus color, this type of hair can not take such abuse it’s the #101 of curly hair.
Bangs are big, the bigger the better, oversized, micro or bold.
Beach waves or surf inspired waves are hot
Straight hair but not rebounded, this is so out!
So in short ( pardon the pun ) natural looking hair is big again and overdone is just not cool. Get yourself in and have a chat and see what changes we can do, big or small it makes a big difference in the end.
Running around on the beach with the sea air on your face, sand between your toes and the sunshine on your skin! Oh yeah if it’s a nudist beach then you really should use protection, sunscreen that is.
Live in the middle of the desert 🌵 and can’t get to the beach?
There is always Sea Salt Spray by Label M to give you that beachy texture to make you feel like your beside the ocean and not at work or stuck someplace that sucks.
We’re always talking about what’s hot and what’s trending but what if you’re not blessed with a head of hair?
Here, we break down the best styles for men with thinning hair. Let’s face it, topknots and quiffs have had their day – who needs hair anyway?
A little more tailored than the traditional buzz cut, this style is cool for men who are thinning on top. The step between the shaved sides and top section is faded in slightly ( but you can go a full blown taper or fade too! )and there’s enough length and texture through the top to allow for a soft, smart finish. The best thing about this style is that it requires minimal effort to create each morning – after washing a little towel dry some matte texturising clay and your done.
You may be only in desperate need to cover the back area of your head but the front is still there whilst is disappearing by the day at the crown, the clever way to create the illusion of a thicker, fuller head of hair all. David Beckham’s cut is high and tight at the back and sides but has plenty of length through the top. The difference in length, together with the way it’s swept back, helps create the impression of a volume.
The close shave
If your like Jason Statham, your follicle situation is weak, then fluffing about what little you have left can look a bit like an old man clinging for his life doing a comb over! Instead, embrace the bald and go buzz cut. Not only does this look fresh and sharp, but it’s super easy to maintain!
What crap! Give me a week on the beach any day I say, but I do know that feeling when life has become a little boring, your routine has become more like a checklist rather than a life. Well maybe it’s time to spice things up?
Yes there are a lot of things that can heat things up, but we are talking hair you flithy little animals
