Periods and pubic hair

Oh my god did you really just start with that? Yes and we will explain why and you will thank us!

In an environment in which talking about a period or pubic hair brings about laughter like a 12 year old in a school yard or the opposite with a look of disgust as if you need to be taken behind the building and beaten its only going to change when we ALL change so putting images on social media and talking about it as if its normal ( AND IT IS! ) its only then that things will change!

You wanted something sexy and yet your wearing your hair in ringlets, like a little rag doll circa 1950’s, ALERT its not cool it looks terrible unless your going to a fancy dress party and have been told to come looking like a hand me down rag doll. Sure curling it into one solid mass curl on either side of your face may keep it curly a little longer ( good for you ) but looks like you did it with both eyes closed and one hand tied behind your back!

Did you?

If you don’t want to look stupid, you want to have all eyes on you in a. good way then its time to change Salons and get your butt into see us!

The trick to having healthy hair no hairdresser or product company will tell you

Yes its true, no one makes money when you have healthy hair, we can safely say this because at this rate we are flat out trying to fix everyone’s hair and it seems like no one is listening so we thought as a community outreach we should try and help the situation by explaining a few things. After all even if you do not come to us for your hair, if we can help in a small way for you to look and feel better about your hair then its great news!

So here are a few things that are FACTS about hair and hair care, how to make sure you don’t end up down a dirt road that leads you to searching on google ” Wigs ” or ” hair extensions”

  • Always get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks regardless of the length you have, the length you want.
  • The term ” Global color” is another way of saying let me ruin your entire hair not just the roots! There should be virtually no need to take color through the ends of your hair even once a year! Very time you do it damages!
  • A ” Hair Spa” DOES NOT FIX STUPID If you have had your hair ruined a few massages and steam is going to do NOTHING! Get a proper protein treatment, if you need advice then drop us an email and we can suggest a few different brands
  • Just because something is on discount, doesn’t mean that its right for you, sure we all love to save money but even if its 50% off it is still 100% waste of money!
  • Keratin is not a treatment to make your hair healthy! It reduces frizz and curl marginally and is NOT I repeat NOT a treatment to fix the bad condition that was caused by the bad color
  • Just because a brand has an amazing advertising campaign, it doesn’t mean their products are the best, some may be some may not be. Using a sulphate free shampoo whilst it is amazing it may not work on your hair!
  • Getting a blowout a few times a week and they burn it into place will in fact cause a lot of damage over 6-12 month. Don’t over heat your hair!

This is just a few, we could go on and on but this will get you started,

Guys if your loosing your hair this is for you!

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?
The crop

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.

The pompadour

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!

Summer Ready Hair

While we all thought that Summer was here for the past month or two well guess what, its officially summer in 48 hours and there is more heat heading our way! When it comes to our hair and skin we all suffer from dehydration and no matter what we all read about drinking lots of water at times it becomes difficult for whatever excuse we can come up with be it too busy or plain forgot. I am sure that most people think about their hair hydration only once they are in the salon ( unless your one of the rare ones and in that case congratulations ).

We thought we would make your life easier by giving you a few helpful hints that is far greater than doing a name sake “hair spa” to make sure your hair is at its peak and not  like a dried up prawn.

 

  1. Hair Spa typically is a glorified conditioner, a conditioner closes the cuticle and in doing so will make your hair look and feel better however its temporary. You need to condition every time you shampoo, open the cuticle you have to close it.
  2. A massage will relax you, it won’t do anything else, especially for your hair. Yes it helps with circulation, however so does a full body massage but neither is going to brings miracles.
  3. Oiling your hair- well this is a Myth buster! Oil and water don’t mix right? Your hair is dead before it leaves your scalp, Oil doesn’t penetrate into the skin does it? Now if that isn’t enough think about adding oil on your body and standing out in the sun, it would make your skin burn right? YES same goes with your hair, even if you wash it off there is always a fine layer of residue left which will increase the heat internally and then causing dehydration.
  4. Serum – Easy answer is YES, always after you have washed and conditioned, if you hair goes flat then your using the wrong serum or too much!
  5. Leave in conditioner, again if its too heavy then change the one your using. Every time you shampoo and condition and use serum then a leave in conditioner.
  6. Shampoo Everyday? With extra heat comes perspiration, if you don’t remove that from your scalp then it can create bacteria on your scalp and therefore effect the growth. You should be using a shampoo and conditioner for your hair, if its colored then a sulphate free shampoo to reduce the color fading. Always use a conditioner. 150-200 hairs falling out per day is NORMAL.
  7. Always comb your hair with a wide tooth comb when you have the conditioner in, while your in the shower.
