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 your loving your hair long

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

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

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!

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!

Be self sufficient it apparently is attractive!

Apparently the girls just told us that picking up after yourself, being able to cook, clean and even iron your own shirt is a big turn on!


Who would have thought right?

Well apparently most girls find it not only attractive but an essential trait of a guy, so before you ask someone to do the basics stop being lazy and do it yourself. Best bet is to wait and do it when the girls are watching or be like this dude and get a cool photo while your doing it that way everyone knows how “self sufficient “ you are 😜

Ok jokes aside, being able to manage yourself, not only your day to day living but your look, your hair is in fact a sign of a guy who has his shit together so get yourself into the salon, talk to us about your hair, how to manage it and get your Maintainence set so your constantly looking good

  • Comb or brush
  • Shaving foam and a new clean razor!
  • Facial cleanser
  • A good moisturiser

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.

A gentle reminder to all men who do not with to look like either Mr Bean or Mr Potato head pls visit Rod Anker Salons ‭011-41010011‬

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.

Looking for a Men’s hairdresser?

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.

You woke up looking like Tarzan? 

It’s ok yes we close early on a Sunday because our team have a life & family.


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.

Here is our number 011-41010011 because we know you oh too well.

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!

Grow a beard they said, the girls will love it they said

Yes we did say grow a beard you twat, we just assumed you knew it needed maintaining not just grow it!

Beards are not meant to worn like this!

Maintain a good beard, lumberjack is cool, homeless look is not

Is you pillow breeding bacteria?

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


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

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

Elvis Presley the barber

Did you know Elvis Prestly was light brown naturally and when he couldn’t get time to color his hair he used shoe polish? 

He actually wanted to be a barber amoungst other things and even cut friends hair for fun! 


Just goes to show you that it’s cool to be doing hair! 

Facial growth art, a trend?

You want to me a lumberjack bloke with a difference so you decide face art is your thing then this happens………

Via Pinterest

It’s not cool either grow it or shave it! It looks more like you have a milkshake mo than anything else. Word to the wise expressing your batman vibes on your face is not going to win you any points with anyone especially the ladies!

So you want to pick up the chicks 🐥?

So guys you have finally realised that your hair may an important part of your game plan, great finally!


Firstly it’s not going to be your dreadlocks, it’s going to be how on fleek and well maintained you are #fact

We understand staying home on a Friday night is lame, we are here to help.

The taper cut will change your life

Gone are the days of the square or rounded hairline that looks like it was drawn on with a ruler. Hello to the 40’s hair that is rocking men’s hairstyles now!


Yes it’s true some guys have a hairline that extends past there shoulders half way down there back and let’s just admit seeing that poke out of your shirt is hardly cool or sexy. 

A tapered hairline extends the life of your cut but up to 7-10 days keeping you look on point longer. It is tapering the skin into your hair, making it a seem less blend that looks clean, sorted and on trend. To make it even better, the area your grey may be showing, is cut short so it means you won’t see it for longer!

If you haven’t tried it, we seriously don’t know what you have been doing!

What type of hot dog are you packing?

It’s a topic that most guys have had, could be with themselves a friend or a partner but it’s happened for sure!


Now just like these hot dogs, at the end of it all, for the sake of the argument they all taste the same. 

Now if your wanting to get your score card up apart from learning how to use your tools it may be time for you to look at your reflection and working on becoming an Urban guy with a few changes to your hair care regime. 

So guys if you think you could use a little help, in the later then give us a call 📱 01141010011

The perfect Men’s cut this season 

Now you guys only even listen to 50% of what you hear so we are going to add more text here in the hope that by doing so you will actually read the bits that count. Ok?


Yes this is a very cool cut right? Yes right. However if your already packing a few extra kg’s then this could make your head look like an super sized happy meal at Mc D’s so be careful. 

Adding texture is the key to the look, it’s done it two parts, the cut then the styling and the perfect product is a Matt paste. 

Tip – trim it every 5-6 weeks, shampoo daily and use your hands only when blow drying as it needs to look natural 

How to find the right hairdresser for you!

Well recently we were told you could look on “Craig’s list” for one, but honestly we are not going up recomend that option unless you’re a backpacker looking for a free ride and possibly happy with some weirdo driving you through the desert 🌵 


It needs to be a relationship that both know what page you are on, the ice has been Brocken and your in a good place. Now given everyone is different and personalities vary how do you find that fast, because you need your blow out done tomorrow night!?

Well here is the quickest way

Phone 011-41010011

Or use this checklist

  • Search on line for a person not a salon in your area who specialises in hair. Google is great but don’t just look at the paid ads!
  • Look at the salon & persons profile online, Facebook, Instagram etc
  • Drop them a DM and ask some random question, see if they even reply. 
  • Look on all the leading fashion magazines like Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan or Harpers Bazaar to see who they talk about. 
  • Go through the salon website and see if it’s just about money & price or it’s about hair
  • Ask your friends or complete strangers who does there hair. 

At the end of the day the relationship you have will largely determine if your hairstylist “gets you” or is simply telling you to do xyz.

Itchy beard?

Any bloke with a beard will tell you that at times it gets itch as hell, you just want to scratch it till your face falls off. Obviously doing this in public sends off jungle man vibes ( and not in a Tarzan good way ) so it’s best to follow a few rules to keep the skin and face healthy to avoid this. 

  • Wash your beard daily, you can use the same shampoo as you do for your hair, beat to use a Sulfate & Parabin free products they are gentle. If you have a longer beard wash it after eating to make sure there is no food left it it 🙊
  • Condition only the ends of your beard, do not apply the conditioner on your face. Comb it with the conditioner in
  • Moisturise your skin under your beard. 
  • Do not! Apply oils on your face. 

Sadly a lot of guys tend to neglect your skin and when you have a beard the general thought is its low maintanence, which is true however there are things you need to do so it is easier but also looks groomed. 

Trimming your beard should be done every 2-3 weeks to keep it in shape, whilst it grows at the same speed as the rest of your hair, it can get out of shape faster. 

Beard game on level 10

A lot of you guys get to winter and think damn I should have grown a beard but by the time you do, it’s already the end of winter. 


Because a lot of us ( guys ) need a gentle reminder to do even the basic things we decided to let you know the ideal time to start growing your facial short & curlies.  

The time to grow it is now!

All our body hair grows on average of 1.25cm per month so unless you want to look like a Norweigan lumberjack you should be good by the time winter sets in if you start now. 

Things to do to get it right

1. Trim the edges, if you don’t it can look unkept and a little “homeless” also helps make it appear thicker the more even it is. 

2. Trim it overall every 6-8 weeks but the mustache area possible weekly. 

3. Wash it several times a day, yes you heard me! If your heading in for a little tongue wrestle the last thing you want to have her smell is the left over chicken Currie you had for lunch you left in your beard in case you got hungry later. 

We will see you all in winter looking like true Wolverines!

Dudes time get your hair game on

Guys tend to be lazy and lets be honest we do not invest the same amount of time or planning as woman do, clearly we are not as smart or well planned but times are changing! There is really no excuses that we blokes can sit back and think its fine not to make sure that your hair or grooming can be below average or at best average, no one is attracted to average other than other average people!

We think its about time that guys started spending more time and thought on there hair to change it up a little and stop looking so basic! Here are some cool ideas for you as we know you wont bother reading you simply want pictures so here goes!
