What Marketing professionals get wrong and waste thousands of dollars on the wrong campaigns

Its easy to shout out and say whats wrong, but to be honest it has to be said as a lot of continued promotions or money spent simply by continually doing the same thing and not evolving. We get asked a lot to do ” collabs” and to be honest its not that we don’t want too its that the vast amount of requests are for unattainable looks that even if the hair could do it, it would take 7-8 hours of work and the upkeep is unrealistic. But going back to marketing or the loose term of marketing especially in India is that its driven by the wrong people, at times the same people who are hardly online, hardly know whats new or current or are even worse, stuck 10 years back with attitudes that are outdated.

I don’t think we have it right, so take a chill pill we are not pointing fingers but simply laying the facts out on the table. If you want to be connected to the right people for your brand, you have to think like the person who you are targeting which kind of makes sense and the 101 of any marketing campaign right? Well if you think about the people that your target audience would interact with, they are the people you should be reaching out too, rather set people that have the ” influencer” in their bio on instagram. When I get asked about which hotel do I recommend from our recent trip to Egypt, not once but 5 times in the first 4 days once we got back home it made me realise that my following in fact actually had a synergy with what I like or in some strange way thought well if they can do it, maybe I should too.

It still shocks me that no matter what amount of money brands pour into media they still have not understood the power of free content and the strength of your own media handle. If your catchment is large or small it really doesn’t matter, its about having the right, relatable content that people can identify with that will set you apart. Sure a $100k television marketing campaign may help, but considering the rate at which people ae departing paid television I suspect it will be a hit and miss for most evolving brands. Maybe a good marketing strategy for brands would be to target the brands that are not making that evolution to social media and start producing those products and dominate that space so when the older brands realise they need to change, it will be too late.

Enough of highly curated content with only your set network of influencers or key people, its time to get it right and spread the exposure out to the right people that have the right following!

Where to get your Baliagé done perfectly

Thinking of a new color that doesn’t lock you into salon visits every few weeks? We love seeing you every couple of weeks but e also know its impractical on several fronts so Baliagé has to be the best way to get fresh and give you color without making you some visit us every few weeks, in fact you can get away with every 2-3 months!

 

Like most artistic services it depends a lot on the way it is done, its not a mix and apply type color and is reliant a lot on the skill level of the hairstylist so with this it is important that you do your research before taking the next step, check out our Instagram page and see if you think we have what it takes to give you the right look!

Mens haircuts that work on Indian dude’s

Its often said that its hard to decide what hair to have for you guys, it has even been said that Guys don’t know how to search on the internet, to that we say ok maybe they don’t but maybe we can help. Here is a haircut that works well on Indian guys and here is two options for the same thing.

 

So the above photo is a cut thats cool carefree and can be tamed down on the top but lends itself to being a little free and easy, whilst keeping the sides short, making it low maintenance!

 

More or less the same haircut but with one big difference and that is there is no undercut, a lot of guys don’t realise that if you are carrying a little extra weight or have a large forehead then having an undercut can add more weight and/or make your forehead look bigger!

 

If this has made you think about your hair then why not pick up the phone and give us a call

How to grow your eye lashes 1 inch

Reasons to not tell your hairstylist what to do!

Most hairstylists have experienced clients who come in and chat about there hair, you both seem to be on the same page, the game plan explained and all agreed too.

Then the moment you start they start to move hair around and give you a step by step how to cut it, which “piece” needs cutting and why. Now we get it some people get anxious and we will make every effort to calm you down but seriously!?


The main reason why this won’t work is because you won’t be happy until we cut that one piece shorter or leave that one section out etc etc. We know hair better than you or you would be cutting it yourself, we know there are some salons that just have no idea and give you chest pain by simply being in the same street as them, we know we do!

That’s not us, if you would feel more comfortable to come in and chat about your hair before your appointment ( a day before or a week before ) please do that because we have a structure and system to follow and by swapping and changing 15-20 times through the cut is never going to make you happy!  Now on another note, please understand that your version of brown and your next door neighbours version of brown is different, due to life filters we all have a different version of things so before we color we always make sure that we are on the same page in terms of color words, do we pull the color chart out…some times but rarely as a lot of people think the swatch they choose is the color we go and select and it is so far from that its not funny!

If you trust us dont tell us what to do, if you dont trust us then keep walking

Its almost the end of January and the goals you had verbally thrown out on 1st Jan, 25 days down and most likely not much has changed! Statistically they say you have to make one move in a certain direction and the rest will follow so we thought it was a good idea to help you along and give you a few looks that might be right up your alley!

Perfect in its Imperfections

Trends come and go and when it comes to trying to get them at times its a little difficult, now about early to mid last year there was a movement to wear hair a lot more natural, messy if you prefer to call it but we like to call it lived in. Its fresh and there is a perfection in the imperfection, it sexy and its current.

af8d8d6793809688af3c96da36c38754-3

The reality is not to put so much effort into it, can you do it using tools the real answer is not really. This hair is done working with unwashed un blow dried hair and it is NOT DONE with heat tools!!!!

The trap that some make is overdoing it and pumping it full of product or over drying it and trying too hard, this look is best on clean unwashed hair with little product.

 

Maybe a little serum and a touch of spray but nothing else!

When you kinda want to sparkle but don’t know how

You have finally decided that you want a little sparkle, not sure if it involves 27 packets of glitter stickers or a color in your hair?


If it’s stickers, please see the above image, not hard basically just get your kit off and start sticking, don’t stop until you run out of stickers.

If it’s hair then pick up the phone and call us!

So if you have been putting it off for the last few weeks, its time to get yourself into the salon guys!

 

Is your color washing out?

Firstly apologies if you think after reading this that we think your stupid but we thought to share a few hair facts with you and colouring to make things a little more simple to understand. There are some colours that will fade, tone fades and it is possible however fading in a solid line is not going to happen its actually called regrowth.

e6d55b9819ded676c5b430b77cca6ba8

When you first started colouring your hair to cover the odd grey hair, life was fairly simple, you got it done every 6-8 weeks and even then hardly noticed the odd white you had, now a few years later there is more than a few “odd” grey hairs its more like a lot and your dark color that you were 10-20 years ago that you insist on still doing looks black against the white hairs as it grows. The easiest way to explain it is brown will look black when you put it beside white, and a few white will look like a bunch beside brown or dark hair. Your hair is constantly growing, so if your have white hair even colouring over it it is growing from the moment it is covered, the darker the color the more visible it will be as it grows. If you expect not to see any white for weeks then you are delusional, its like a guy saying I shaved a week ago and now I have facial hair, it literally grows 24/7 and you will see small dots of white within days, this is normal and reality.

Easy way to get longer out of it is simple, do not take your color as dark as you are, as you get more grey ( or white hair ) the take the color slightly lighter so there is less variation. Add some highlights to your color to break it up and its not so solid.

Color does not fade in a perfect line, its called regrowth!

Stuff that in your mouth girl

So you want to be hot, have awesome hair, eat and drink what you want and everything to be amazing?! Well there most likely is a window in time when you possibly can do this and for those still in those very few years 18-20 go for it piggy. For the rest we have to have balance, both in life and the fun we put our bodies through. We get asked a lot is there a food that would make our hair grow, well considering Rod is bald, if there is such a food then someone needs to tell him!

9e4013746ed372e84d6052eb7d402ad5

Fast food is fine in moderation but having a diet that is not balanced will eventually catch up on you, your hair and your body. Have a balanced diet, get the right amount of sleep and be kind to others.

Saying that we are writing this on a Saturday so I guess you can start this tomorrow!

You want to blend in or stand out?

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!

883b2853ca44a3bb88c5c06ae252f68d-2

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!

 

Leaders in Baliage hair coloring

Any technique requires training and understanding of why it has been created and Baliage has been a technique that has been around for a very very long time however now has become a popular way of colouring hair and the look has become very popular. Its literally one of those colours you only have to get done every 4-6 months ( depending on your length ) and looks super natural if done right!

a7483e80ec3582180bb9c0a3e51c0158

f222e6b985b4387a15f63909c8347c57-2

Now as it is a free hand technique, it is important that the placement of the color be exact or you will end up with a color that is the opposite of natural and things can go very wrong. Its time consuming and patience is required, don’t think you can run around once the color is in because you will need to sit still whilst it processes. You can have it super subtle and natural or combine it with Ombre to get a very striking visible look, also the color can be lighter only by one shade or it can be as light as your hair will take!

If you think this looks like something you would like to do then give us a call!

Are you wasting money on hair products

If you have ever been to a salon and got your hair did, you most likely have experienced what we are told is the most annoying thing, a persistent push to sell you things to fill your bathroom cupboards that will do very little to recreate the look or maintain the condition but they look good.

bc87ad37cdd0c6c4a3d0c0742fc95714

Now we are not saying you don’t need certain products however there has to be a balance between what you actually need to create the look and what not essential. We think that there is enough “things” in this world that are on the list of could do without that we don’t need to add to it.

If the cut is done right will it sit the way its intended after you wash it with little effort?

Well depending on the look and the style, lets say you have straight hair and you want to wear it curly then unless there is a natural bend to some extent, no it won’t, if you have fine flat hair will it be full after a wash and go, no. Saying that the cut makes all the difference and can encourage the movement required but its not going to work solo and not need any support or assistance from product. The key is getting the right products, typically we believe that any more than two products ( other than a shampoo and conditioner ) is enough. No one has the time, money and space in there bathroom for 5-6 products to get that perfect “natural look”. But I guess if you do there is enough products on the market you could certainly do it, but we like to keep things simple.

If easy going hair is your thing then give us a call

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.

 

How to get shinny Hair

Apparently one of the most searched things to talk about is how to make your hair look healthy vs actually making it healthy. Now whilst obviously prevention is better than trying to fix something that is already ruined but we will share with you one of the best keep secrets to get shinny hair immediately!

1c730902938858af4d11fac69ffaba42

Now there are a zillion masks, treatments, hair spa’s, oils, serums etc etc on the market and some work to some extent and some are just nonsense that are cosmetic vs actually making any difference. To have shinny hair it is the light reflecting on the outer layer of the hair ( the cuticle ) now if the cuticle has been damaged, could be from blow drying, using hot styling tools or overdone colour or keratin etc then no amount of ” Spa” or treatment is going to fix it anytime between now and Xmas so how do you look good for the holidays?

Here is how!

We use a clear gloss that is low in ammonia and will act as a lacquer over your hair, won’t change your colour, won’t damage your hair but will get the light reflecting off it today! Now whilst this will make your hair feel better it is NOT a repair service it is simply to help it look better. Depending on the condition it can make a huge difference, it will wash out so it is safe to do and won’t have any long term negative effects!

How to go light and still have beautiful healthy hair

Image via @refinery29

 

How can you lighten your hair ethically and keep the condition in check is a question most people struggle with the answer. The reality is if you are prepared to be patient then it’s possible but if you want to step out of work on a Friday night at 5 with black hair and walk back in Monday a soft beachy blonde then you are dillusional.

Now no matter what you have been told about additives that help maintain the integrity of the hair, there is still limitations you can not buy yourself out of. Hair is non descriminational nor does it care, the structure and it’s strength are the only thing that will get you blonde and keep the tone nothing else.

If you have been colouring it black since you saw your first grey hair and woke up and realised it looks fake ( about time ) then the transition from black to blonde will take you some time. By ” some time ” we are not meaning between 1-3pm on the Saturday after you wake up. It requires several sittings over several days or weeks depending on the way your hair reacts. 

The reality is whatever has gone on your hair will effect the process and the result and no amount of wishing will change it. We get asked if heat can be added because some salons add heat to speed it up.

When you add heat like this, it may speed it up however it swells the hair shaft and causes more damage as well as a result effected by the swelling of the hair, which in the days after the color will change. 

We suggest a in depth consultation about your desired goal and reality in result as well as timing . Once we have discussed possible results and we are all happy, then we proceed.

Hair tattoo facts

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


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

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

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

When a group chat goes south

You add people to a group chat, cos basically your over asking 10 people “hey what’s the plan” and yet doing this means no one actually replies. 

Group chats are annoying and like hanging out with your crew 24/7 with no one taking control leaving you in the same position. 

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

A girl is more worried about who you are and how you look more than what your packing. 🌭

We are on sale!

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!

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

Supermarket vs Salon

If you have ever thought you’re going through to much shampoo and you think it’s costing you more buying salon products than a supermarket product. 


Majority of salon products are designed for shampooing daily on shoulder length hair to last 6-8 weeks because that’s the space between salon visits. So if your washing every second day and your hair is to your shoulders then 12-16 weeks. We can guess that’s just not happening right! Then your using too much!

Using good quality products will always not only be better for your hair but end up costing you less! Just like going to a professional salon for services typically will also be better value, cuts last longer, you won’t end up doing services you don’t actually need and hence your hair will love you for it. 
Drop in and see why we are considered the best hair salon in India 

Best colorist in India

Yes yes we can take a seat now, because no matter who’s hair we do or what others say all that really matters is how we feel about the work we do and the happiness of our clients. But one thing is consistent with all of our team and that is to question the norm, to ask why. Just because things are done a certain way doesn’t mean they always have to be right? 

Part of being inovative is to know the rules, master them, then break them consistently. 


The most important thing to remember is firstly you must know, understand and have mastered the basics before you break the rules!

If color is as much your thing as it is ours, come see us or slide us a DM with your favorite color and let’s see how we can help! 

Hump day solutions 

It’s hump day which means mid week! It’s a proven fact that when you love the way you look, you feel better about yourself and are 73% more likely to be a better person!


Ok so we literally made that up 🙊 but you get the idea right? Look good feel good and it’s mid week so the stars ✨ and moon 🌙 are not aligned perfectly for a few more days.

How to sort through the crap

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

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

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


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

Quality in quality out

Where can you find inspiration when your only seeing the one point of view?

How can you grow and develop if your only listening to the one voice?

You can’t 

I know I’ve spoken about this before but I personally believe you end up morphing into what you see and/or believing it to be the best simply because you don’t have any other reference to calibrate it by. 


I’m a little bit of an Instagram addict, not because I care what others are doing but to stay connected to what is happening in the world. There is so much information, inspiration right there in real time it’s bound to keep your battery like mine ( at 5%). 

If your not on it or on it but only following your friends or posting selfies then you are missing out!
