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

Mid afternoon walk

Back in the salon

Decided to go get some coffee

Then headed back to salon

Dreaming of a road trip to the Sandunes a few months ago

Then

So I guess you can say life is art and you really don’t need to look to far to get inspired, it’s right in front of you.

Met Ball 2018 the heads up

If you thought on the weekend you might go to the arts and crafts market and do yourself a little DIY head gear for that wedding or party you got going on Jen Atkin & her crew just took it up a 473 notches. With the coolest gals on her client list here are some of her creations for the Met Ball 2018 as well as some of the others that attended!

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!

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!

It’s about your feed

It’s not about your Instagram, it’s not about Facebook it’s about the food you feed your soul. Recently returning from Bali and seeing new sight, experiencing new culture, food and people it makes you realise how big the world is.

Have to be highlight was our trip to Nusa Penida and our stay at Villa Sungai, both breathtakingly beautiful. If you have not been to Bali it’s a must!

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

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!

India’s coolest place to get your hair done

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!!

Play with my balls this Valentines day!

Really, like seriously struggling for content this much? Or is it just being real, well if its being real then why do we have to wait for that one day in the year when you buy flowers, tell someone you love them or be nice. Basicaly you should be doing that everyday shouldnt we?

4057eca3d4ac69c8320231a584869e9f

No we are not going to teach you Tennis or tricks to play with balls, although that would be a good topic but not going there!

If you love someone, tell them, if you fancy someone, tell them life is too short to live with regrets, it is also too short to live your life not to the fullest and be loved the way you deserve!

No matter what you are doing this Valentines day, it doesnt define you, you define you!

How to get the best Wash and blow

You may be someone who thinks a blow is a blow is a blow, yet if you have had a bad blow you will know it’s not!

The problem is a bad blow dry can be the cause of a lot of problems and could be the reason you look like a fried mess!

A few things to keep in mind when getting a blow out!

  • The hair does not need burning into place
  • Over use of heat when it’s not needed causes dehydration and will lead to split ends
  • Always use heat protection
  • Always use conditioner
  • Just because its cheap doesnt mean its harmless

If something has to be forced then chances are there is a problem, your cut should be specifically for your hair and if it’s not working then maybe it’s the cut that needs altering.

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!

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.

Merrylin Boro With her fresh AF bowl cut to get 2018 looking fresh.
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.

When you got a mouth full of hair?

Nothing worst than going in and getting a mouthful of hair, kind of a mood breaker if your locks are not maintained!

Shaving it could be an option but let’s talk Maintainence in case you don’t want to go bald. Guys with stubble, their face will act like Velcro and your hair will stick all over his face, which in itself can be ok unless your out with friends or family. Then it can look like things are getting hot when it was just an innocent peck intended. 
Let’s start with a few things you can do to prevent this!

  • Leave in serum like Cristali liquid by Alfa Parf which closes the cuticle and keeps the cuticle surface smooth.
  • Regular trims, removes split ends which in turn creates smoother surface.
  • Pony tail, keep it high which will keep your face and neck free for playtime.
  • Pre planning is better if you can manage to shampoo and condition before it’s better, remember the smell of your shampoo on wet hair is like a wet dog, it’s not cool so dry it!
  • A little perfume inside your hair so he can’t smell the smoke from the night before your hair absorbed in the club ( when you said you were home watching re runs of friends)

We hope this helps you not giving your guy fur balls, the rest is up to you!

31 Days into 2018, what have you done-You get one life!

It’s Such a common phrase, some people have the best excuses and at times it would be easy to sit down and give up, not try, not put in effort and maybe just maybe most people would. But we are put on this earth, given life and it’s a gift, shouldn’t you make the most of it?

Shouldn’t you be a positive influence in people’s lives? Isn’t that what it’s about?

 

Well its about to be February of 2018 and I am sure that we all started with the best intentions for the year, so what have you done to make your dreams come true this year? 31 days down

It’s one day or Day one, you decide!

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!

If your parents are white, chances are you will go white too

There are some who think they have the secret potion or recipe for not getting white hair, well folks if you know it I’m sure its worth more than knowing what the 12 secret herbs and spices are. If your parents went white young, good chance you too will go white young. Its not a fool proof, your going to be white at the same time but more of an indication its fairly probably. Your DNA which is a mixture of both parents will now play their role in you and determine what happens.

12cd4b638d52ce27bf4c47fc1ced2c8d-2

Remember a small % of going white is placed on external factors, stress life etc

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

Mauritius is the Hottest destination only 6 hours from Delhi

So we went away for our Christmas break and was really last minute, we needed sunshine and blue skies and had heard about Mauritius from friends so thought why not! Booked only the week before Christmas, we were set and only a 6.5 hour flight direct from Delhi on Air Mauritius we were there!

Coming from Australia, the beaches are kind of good and the surrounding places people typically go on holidays are Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu and Cook Islands and if you just open a new tab and search any of these you will see the beaches are awesome. Now that being said Mauritius is different, sure the beaches are endless white sand and the water on almost every beach is crystal clear, paradise! But its different in the sense it has sense of life other than a beach holiday destination.

We hired a car, which was really easy, although a little challenging as it was Christmas but finally got one. and spent 8 days exploring the island. Easy to navigate around and everything was accessible.

Now not a New Years resolution type people but must say we both had a really peaceful time reflecting on what has been and what goals we will strive for in 2018.

Rod Anker celebrates 10 Years in Incredible India

Well its almost 10 years that I have been in this amazing country, some ups and some downs but love the way the country has welcomed me, I love it!

258efeb92180cee7be755fcda0b0f3c4.jpg

But have to raise my middle finger to those few that said I wouldn’t make it, some out of love and some out of reality. There is a lot more to come and the last almost 2 years in Meherchand in our own stand alone Salon has proven that our skill and Know how works just the way we said it would.

2018 we are planning some really incredible things and can’t wait to share them with you!

 

Thanks to all who doubted me, it is a real motivator

Not sure to say F&% it or not Maybe

Its so easy to get stuck in a rut and end up down a road you really don’t want to be on! One day turns into two, three and before you know it you are at a place you really never wanted to be in the first place!

700caed7a94b5b212b670fd1555ce72f

So that being said, take the trip, say yes if you want to say yes, take the call, avoid the others, get a hair cut and life you life!

Since when is your Kitchen an option for hair care

Home remedies started pre internet and before there were any other options other than to rely on the information passed down from generation to generation, back then it was all you had, there was no on line shopping, no boutique brands and certainly the only research was based on what your family did or what stories were told.

d52bc26b2b648e72ad93fb12896a499e

Now whilst some may sound legit, there are very few that actually work or in fact some have the adverse effect and cause problems rather than cure anything. Somewhat like a placebo you may end up thinking that by doing some of these obscure things you hair may grow longer, thicker, faster and any other promises your 110 year old grandmother tells you!

Now whilst some of the home remedies we have been exposed to are not only crazy but plain disgusting, like onion pulp on your scalp….seriously? If you think putting Olive oil or coconut oil on your scalp is going to miraculously going to solve anything, you really need to get your head right!

Before you go to your fridge, do a little research on this thing called Internet and make the determination yourself, don’t take our opinion as authority its best to get the information yourself then make a decision.

If your planning on asking a professional what food you can put on your hair to “fix it” understand that you have a problem with the basics and you need to come and see us

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.

This is who we are

Was asked today who is our target market and it got me thinking…. immediate thoughts were not people who would ask “who is your target market” lol that too in a packed salon to ask “Who comes here” 😶

Via @Arsenic

 

So thought we should spell it out for you, we do hair, we do beautiful sexy AF hair, that is not driven on anything other than giving you a beautiful looking head 🙊

We are not sorry for how we communicate, it’s the way we talk, it’s real. If you think by you telling us who you are is going to make us do a better job or give you more attention I guess you should possibly not choose us, if you want awesome hair then there is really only one option.

 

Give us a call on 011 410 100 1

Ah so Google told you

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.

e04e9bf8f337ddd0b01a9fd7e727fe68

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.

Leave it to a professional salon!

You want blonde, brown, bright, natural full and flat hair then you must read how we deal with crazy!

We kind of think of ourselves as different, in fact we are and we know it, now its not one particular thing that we can say is dramatically different from everyone else although a lot of small things that amount to a lot. Now recently we had someone come in and we would not name anyone however when something happened its good to talk about it as we are sure there may be others out there that feel the same so here goes! ( if you have anxiety please take your meds now, this could cause you to feel like throwing your computer out the window! )

Now Mrs X comes in wanting color, we like to talk to people to find out whats going on in their head before we do anything, be it a color or a cut, we have to know what why and when etc in order to be able to exceed expectations we firstly have to know what expectations you have right?

So when someone comes in and says they want a ” good color ” and something that is natural but everyone should notice it, we tend to know something is not right.

MrsX- Should be lighter but not too light, natural but at least 5-6 shades lighter and I don’t want it to touch my scalp, please leave out 1 inch of the roots.

US-After the severe head pain started we decided to stop the conversation and start a fresh to no avail, showing pictures of light copper hair when her hair was almost black and saying that she wanted something natural like this……. ( I needed a drink at this point ) OK so here is the problem, why are you wanting to color your hair, the answer was everyone is doing it, ok so thats good but do you want to go lighter?

Mrs X- Yes lighter but not too much lighter, little lighter, should be good color, natural, but everyone should notice it, I don’t want to look cheap or gold and don’t put close to my scalp because I know colouring your hair makes it go grey! I did my research ok I know! You tell me what to do and I will do it, make it good

US- Well at this point the drink went from a small to a double and the pain had traveled from the front of my head to the entire head and moving towards every atom in my body at a rapid rate. We decided to try and start again ( for the third time now ) Your hair won’t go grey from colouring it BTW that is a myth and there is absolutely no fact behind it.

Mrs X- I know ok please don’t tell me this, my auntie told me and I also read it on internet so its true, so whatever you do it should not touch my scalp at all, I don’t want grey!

Us- Deep breaths, does that work, would it be ok to like go outside and just throw something? kinda at this point but no we didn’t. We started again, ok lets put all of this aside ad have a look at some photos, we did…. all of which looked completely the opposite to what she was saying, Then showing some violet colours amongst light copper and dark brown.

The problem here is no matter what you do it will never make you happy, its our job to direct you into doing something that you will love, but in order to do that we must firstly know what is going on in your mind, You can’t walk into a restaurant hoping to have the best meal of your life, ask the waiter to send you the nice food, the best food you have and think that its going to be exactly what you have been dreaming about. Maybe it will be, maybe it won’t, maybe it will be his opinion based on what others order and have no boxes ticked for you other than just food!

In these situations we get another hairstylist to talk to them ( sometimes its just a simple matter of personalities or maybe language ) so we did, well that hairdresser couldn’t handle it and told Mrs X that everything she said was contradicting itself and he had no idea what she wanted.

Solution, we send her away with homework, do some research and put some thought into what color you are after, save some images from Pinterest, get onto instagram and send us the photos of hair you like as well as the ones you don’t like so we can then move forward. Its setting yourself up for success and to be happy vs getting something done thinking that whatever you do is going to be ok, its not.

Now a lot of salons won’t do this ( its not a common situation, in fact its rare that this level of confusion happens) but when it does should a salon just color it and take the clients money knowing that what they are asking for is so wrong and that she probably won’t be happy? Well we think its better to say no, we think its better to get a clear picture of what is expected, a clear vision of what makes you happy, a clear plan and then move forward.

Mrs X is coming back in a few days with images and we will be approaching her with love, peace and openness along with our medication in hand in case things go south! Wish us luck!

Home remedies to Stop hair fall

Home remedies started pre internet and before there were any other options other than to rely on the information passed down from generation to generation, back then it was all you had, there was no on line shopping, no boutique brands and certainly the only research was based on what your family did or what stories were told.

d52bc26b2b648e72ad93fb12896a499e

Now whilst some may sound legit, there are very few that actually work or in fact some have the adverse effect and cause problems rather than cure anything. Somewhat like a placebo you may end up thinking that by doing some of these obscure things you hair may grow longer, thicker, fast and any other promise your 110 year old grandmother tells you!

Now whilst some of the home remedies we have been exposed to are not only crazy but plain disgusting, like onion pulp on your scalp….seriously? If you think putting Olive oil or coconut oil on your scalp is going to miraculously going to solve anything, you really need to get your head right!

Before you go to your fridge, do a little research on this thing called Internet and make the determination yourself, don’t take our opinion as authority its best to get the information yourself then make a decision.

When you thought you were cool

There was a lot of attention over the last 6-12 months and we saw a lot of people going pastel, some were cool but now your stuck with a faded out color that makes you look more like a cheap Barbie doll than the fashion icon that you had in mind, so what do you do?

6a89ab2d2faa0fdd494aadcc85dd5432

Well forget getting the clippers out and shaving it off, I think we are a far way off that just yet, lets look at what you can and can’t do without destroying your hair. Keeping in mind especially if you have darker hair, to get to the lighter shades you have managed to take your hair to the end of the world and back and its nothing short of a miracle that it is still attached to your head so covering up all this hard work when its only been a few short weeks since you had it done!

Considering pastel tones or bright colours have a limited time frame for holding in your hair, even when you have been super good and used all the right things, it will fade this is normal!

Here are your options!

  • Re apply a pastel tone, why not make the most out of having lighter hair, change it up a little but look at it like this, you wont have to lighten it up as its already been done!
  • Sure you can go one solid bright color, in fact why not, this will evolve your look and give it a healthy appearance!
  • You can cover over the entire head, darker BUT remember that even though you are going darker and there is no sign of the light color any more, it is still there and the damage is already done, no matter what you do now until that hair is cut off it has been exposed to several applications of color and will tend to be fragile!

 

Things to keep in mind when you color your hair like this, it won’t last as long a s a regular color, you must use conditioner, you must use a serum to close the cuticle which will help keep the color locked in.

 

 

Memberships now on sale

Everyone wants to feel special or loves a deal and there has been some interest lately in memberships to come visit our salon so we thought we would explain what our thoughts are about “Memberships”

Sure you may have to shell out a bulk amount to get your special membership rate for the next 3-6 or 12 months but I guess some people are attracted to a % discount more than anything else.

A lot of salons have membership and push it hard for you to buy into it, it gives you a good discount and I guess if your happy with it then good for you. We don’t offer Membership and it’s not because we don’t want to give you a cheaper haircut or take your money in advance it’s because we value what we do and value the quality of our work.

More often than not you will purchase a “membership” only to find out you really don’t want or like what’s on offer anyway, or even worst is the practise of using the value on services you don’t need just to try and recover the discount they gave you.

We believe it’s best to search for quality first then price as 90% of the time you will end up spending more fixing mistakes.

Who wants a free iPhoneX? All you need to do is 

Since the majority of the time you have your head down looking at your phone there are several things to remember before buying an new IPhoneX.

  • Save time blow drying, just do the top as no one will see the rest.
  • If you have color regrowth is visible after 4-8 instagram posts depending on your level of self obsession.
  • Your hair needs washing every second Facebook check in.
  • Recharge your phone, check your hair, unless your the one with the charger strapped on 24/7 then every now and then open the camera and check it that way you dont have to look at anyone in the eye or interact in the real world.

Every now and then look up, the world you think you want, the one you tag others in, those moments you don’t even see are 4 feet away from you!

What’s app goes down 

I think it’s safe to say the only thing coming in the mail now are bills, online deliveries and letters from the government. Long gone are the days someone used to drop something in the mail to say hi or express how they felt, sometimes not in a good way lol 😂 
Now it’s a short blunt message on what’s app, the quickest reply without thought or often the other person doesn’t even read the message or will reply with “lol” or “k”.
Maybe instead of having random conversations with half of the planet on groups,  we learnt how to communicate with the people we care about.

No more “GM” or 😘🤤😩🙄😂😝🙏🏻👍🏻👇🏻🤘🏻✌🏻but words, that would be fun, that may be the thing that’s missing!

Stop complaining, your alive and it could always be worse

Some days will be filled with rainbows, unicorns and fairies and other days everyone on the planet will seem like they are going out of their way to just annoy the 💩 out of you.  Your too fat, your girlfriend doesn’t show you enough love, your boss is a mofo, your hair is too thin.

Well here are some friends who have it a whole lot worse just to help put things into perspective for you!


Take a breathe and appreciate what you have, love life! 

How to get your Selfie game on

Choosing a salon is like “trick or treat”

When deciding where to get your hair done, there is so much noise about who is the best, who has a “deal” bla bla bla it’s hard to know who to trust and is almost like heading out trick or treating on Halloween 🎃

Merrylin Boro & Rod Anker after the Homegrown Halloween Party

 

So we decided to come back home and skip it, luckily for us we had some chocolate in the fridge!

Don’t be a Joker and get in and see us before doing anything.

Why Delhi girls…WHY

It’s not  just us, it’s a saying and let’s be honest there has to be a reason and we are here to explain it in the easiest way we know how so listen up!


Actually it’s more like gold, not the expensive one more like the imitation one. When your hair is dark it has the most red ( warm ) pigment, more than light brown hair. When you think about the color off your dreams is it yellow or gold? I doubt it, no one intentionally wants to look that bad 🙊

The reason

The problem is when your color is being done, it has been not lightened enough, the gold pigment needs to be removed in this process or no matter what you do it will show it’s ugly head if not immediately or in a week or so.

Now the second biggest issue is how the end result is finished off, if it’s toned again with a light color ( because the hairstylist just realised it wasn’t light enough and trying to fix it the wrong way)

Without getting into the technicalities of hair coloring understand a toner the way a lot of salons do then are a permanent color so by putting it on your entire head with lighten it all up making the hair that wants coloured gold and yellow.

Now this is not the only reason but considering the amount of people we see it’s the cause in 95% of the cases.

Don’t risk it and only trust a professional salon.  There is a reason we are named the best colorists in India

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.

What to wear if you’re planning on playing strip poker this Diwali?

Prior preperation prevents poor performance as they say so let’s make sure since Diwali is a celebration in India that there is a lot of card parties, you are a little prepared. Not saying there will be strip poker but hey, stranger things have happened. Wouldn’t you be happier that you wore a few more layers? Yes I guess you would so keep reading or be the first one sitting in the buff.


Now since fashion week has just finished apparently layers are in ( yes thank God, since gym was obviously not high on my priority) so add a jacket or an extra shirt or 4. Unless of course you want to get naked and show off your assets then in that case just make sure you trim and have your love nest in order for the public viewing.

Whatever your doing have fun!

You want her to treat you like Jon Snow

You water your plants right? Well at least we hope you do!

You have been doing beach waves wrong

If you have heard of beach waves chances are you asked for them at one stage or another and possibly the look was I point. As the name suggests your hair changes in texture when around the ocean sea air, the salt content adds texture and encourages hair to move and hence the loose wave effect.


Don’t be fooled, it’s not curl it’s a loose slightly random wave.

The entire idea of this look is that it’s not super neat, if you get it done and brush it out….. it’s not beach waves.

If you haven’t tried it yet then it’s about time you came to the salon that do it daily, we know how it’s done and are experts at it.

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

Your hair is a reflection of your diet

It’s often thought that it needs to be complicated to be believed, could it be as simple as diet and sleep? You think things should be complicated and there are secrets only a specialist knows I guess. Well there are some but the basic foundation of healthy hair and healthy growth is diet.


Like a lot of things, the better quality goes in the better quality comes out, it’s not that hard to understand. If you’re living on junk food and lack 8 hours sleep a day don’t think going to a salon or doctor for any new treatment is going to do anything. It’s not.

You are what you eat!

What are you packing?

Blokes are typically a little lazy when it comes to packing before Travelling so we thought it best to go through the essentials for the trip!

Firstly depending on how long your trip is for as to if you need to drop into the salon and get a clean up, keeping in mind there is nothing more unattractive than a bushy neck ( well there is but that’s one 😜)

Now you need to take the following.

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • A dry paste
  • Beard oil
  • Comb or brush
  • Shaving foam and a new clean razor!
  • Facial cleanser
  • A good moisturiser

Now if you’re in the same room your bag will be looked at, trust me she will be going through it and judging you based on what your taking as well as which brand it is!

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.

Looking for something fresh to do with your hair this season?

Fashion week is here again and the weathe is starting to cool down, all signs that you need to change things up a bit and get yourself a new look!


If your one of those self obsessed people that love wearing labels it’s time you started thinking about your hair! There is nothing more last season than Hair that is the same month after month, year after year.

Can be some small changes every 8 weeks eventually evolving into a new look but it should change.

If your stuck with what to do then come see us and discuss what options you have.

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.
Visit us and let us burst your bubble but let you leave with hot hair you love!

Don’t bite off the hand that feeds you

Too many times we get a good thing and we don’t appreciate it, or do when it’s too late, after it’s gone!


We push it, want more, expect more and take for granted that thing will always be there. Well guess what it won’t be! 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

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!

If you’re bald we are sorry 

Unless you have no hair then maybe it’s your hands that are rough 😱😂


If you are tired of hearing the same old insults about your current hair, it’s too flat, too dry, to faded, to damaged etc etc then it’s seriously time to change hair salons!

Your hair will thank you

We serve blueberry pancakes

Hump day is meant to be the hardest day of the week and once you get past it, it’s meant to get easier right?


I don’t know about you all but honestly I just want to Netflix, chill and pancake my way through this one!

If you’re having a crappy week come spend some time with us, no we don’t have pancakes, no we don’t have Netflix but we do have scissors and that could be fun 😜

Sorry the headline is balls we do have awesome coffee not your instant crap. Awesome hair good music and coffee

A tight fade with a built in partline

Like it or not it’s a trend and maybe for the Typical lazy guy who couldn’t be bothered trying to make sure his hair is looking ok, just shave the edges plus a line and comb the one piece left.


Not a bad idea in the grand scheme of things. If you or your mates are lazy AF let them know about this style it could be for them!! 

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 😜

What is your hair saying about you?

It’s not a new theory in fact it’s the same as your wardrobe, dress for success they said but no one made a fuss about your hair. In fact most people neglect to put the same effort into their hair as they do their clothes.


When you are making such an effort to send all the right signals with beautifully fitted clothes, the right colors, the perfect shoes, most up to date look yet by the time you get to your hair it’s almost like you ran out of time & money or at the very least stop bothering to see it through.

When your dressing head to toe remember the stuff on your head! It’s the one thing that you wear daily and can’t quickly change in the washroom of the club. Get hair that suits you, says what you want it to say and that works for you.

A home like Tarzan

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!

This is how your home/  office should be to produce extra oxygen on turn filling up your space with “brain juice” that inspires and relaxes!

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!


If you take the time to plan this properly your hair will look bang on throughout. If it’s 5 weeks out and you want to look fresh AF then you need it done now then the week of all of your parties once more and you will look perfect!

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!

Looking for free hair advice

Now advice is free and always will be so don’t be scared to ask, consultations are something easy that you can do obligation free and no cost. A great way to see if you’re in safe hands with your hair right?

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.

Check out our Rod Anker Salons Review and search away 🤓😜

If you’re day already needs a pick me up

So it’s the weekend and after last night all you really want to do is close the curtains and go back to bed. Sadly not an option for a lot of us but we can dream right, but I guess if we had that then we would end up complaining we were not busy.


If things went south last night and you want to feel FAF then you really have no option but to come get a blowout 💨

It’s only about you and your color

Imagine you want your color done, maybe not pink but maybe also but just imagine your looking for a place to get it done. You want the best, you want a salon that is brilliant at colouring hair right?


You’re not looking for a one stop solution are you?

I think not, well we ONLY do hair, so it’s kind of obvious that when you are only doing one thing that one thing should be the best and that’s what we are about. It’s a choice as a brand that we made, we wanted to be known for being the best so that’s what we are!

If you are searching for a brilliant hair color then pick up the phone and get yourself in!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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 😻

Pastel eyebrow porn

From the runways to well planned fashion editorials, colouring eyebrows is not a new thing. We have seen many times models bleaching them white so they look like they done have any or you doing yours black because it makes them look thicker.


But now there is pastel eyebrow porn, yeah we don’t see it becoming a trend that will be hitting the streets anytime soon but you never know.

We like to keep you up to date with what’s going on, often it’s nonsense but hey some days there is a lot and other days it’s like reporting a cat rescue story. That’s life

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.

Rod Anker Salons 

We get asked if it is just Rod doing hair, the answer is no. We have a team of stylists that all do hair, but keep in mind we do hair, we only do hair we are not a parlor, a beauty salon and not a place in mid west America serving beer by the bucket ( that’s a Saloon 😂 )


We have two floors in the centre of Meherchand market, beside Altitude Cafe.

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.

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.

 

We are the best, they said

When you have searched and searched finally you found the salon, perfectly scripted quotes on Facebook, the staff were so confident it was scary. You make an appointment and explain what you want, your perfect color. The hairstylist keeps saying relax I got this! Then……..


It’s Monday morning you’re back at work searching for help hoping no one in the office will notice!

We fix overconfident hair and we won’t tell you to relax, we will tell you to keep your mouth shut!

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!

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 yourself up constantly, that comes from filling up the 24 hours in every day with things that help you grow. Don’t try to push people down, no matter who it is, in fact lift up as many as you can along the way. The more people you help grow, the more friends you have at the top.

Don’t let one little set back pull you down, I don’t and never will. You can throw anything at me but I will always win, always!

That should be your mind chatter! 

Breaking news Putin has deep ties in Russia

Reports just in that Putin has multiple ties in Russia!

Late last night it was released by several news outlets across the globe his involvement in various businesses and people.

On the outskirts of Moscow called Sergiev Posad it is reported that Putin has been seen eating chicken out of a KFC 12 piece box. Reports are still not confirmed but it is rumoured that he said no to an upsize. After leaving the KFC car park drive through he was seen heading to a Chinese run laundrymat with a small Nike gym bag, not sure if it had his used gym clothes to get washed, some hair regrowth serum or other suspicious things.


Although it’s also rumoured he in fact runs the country and a small chain of take away Vietnamese restaurants, we need to maintain our vigilance said someone who was friends with a cousin who had a next door neighbour from the Kremlin.

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!

Rainbow hair

Can I do it? Will it look good? Where on my head should I do it? Is it expensive? How long does it take?

So many questions 😬


Well let’s take you they it!

Firstly it’s done on lighter hair, so if your hair is dark or coloured dark it needs to be lightened. Once a light blonde is achieved the rainbow colors are selected and applied. Is it that simple? Reality is nothing is that simple however if you are dealing with a light shade already then it could be. If you have had color and there is a regrowth then it gets more complicated ( not impossible just complicated ).

Will it look good? Well everything can look good if it’s done right.

Is it expensive? Easy answer is no, but the reality is depends on the state of your hair when we start.

How long does it take? Seems like we are avoiding a straight answer but this depends on length, existing color etc. Ball park figure depending on amount your doing etc but a small rainbow on collar length hair 40-60 dollars 💵

If you have been dreaming of it then the time is right. Give us a call

Why your brown hair now looks orange

So your not From Hawaii but your hair washes out and goes a orange brown between visits.


It happens and it ends up making your color look like it’s out of a box and not like a rare unique zebra from a tropical island. Here is why and how to prevent it.

  • Your cuticle isn’t closing, the tone is being washed away. You must condition daily.
  • The water quality is terrible and causing the color to fade, use filtered water or bottled water. Annoying yes but it works.
  • Your shampoo is too destructive and has SLS which is stripping the color. Change to a sulfate free shampoo. We use Alfa Parf products which are all SLS & paraben free.
  • Your hair condition is ruined and the cuticle can not hold the color in because it’s too damaged. Remove damaged sections, get treatments to help close cuticle.
  • Do not use any oil treatment on your hair ever! It swells the cuticle and causes color to fade.
  • Each time you color your hair the ends do not always need color, the more you color the more damaged it gets, the more damaged the less the color holds.

If your constantly ending up orange or red then maybe adding some ash to your next color is what is needed, a lot can be done during the actual color process and the way it is mixed up as well as what you do once you leave the salon!

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………

How to grow your hair faster, thicker, stronger is possibly one of the most googled questions. 


Well it’s fairly basic but so are some of you, we guess your thinking it’s food or some exotic fruit but here are the facts!

  2. Regular trims (6-8weeks) doesn’t make it grow faster but reduces split ends hence reducing of length. 
  3. 8-10 hours of sleep a night. Yes some of you should have hair like Rupanzel right about now!
  4. Healthy diet! There are 5 food groups all nutritionists around the world know about them, it’s not a secret. Eat something from each group daily. Don’t over eat, don’t skip and don’t try to convince yourself you can cheat.  Healthy body healthy hair!
  5. Use good products, for f*%# sake just because they have a Marketing budget doesn’t mean it’s the best product! Do some research get the facts!

7 ways to prevent frizz during monsoon 

Yep the rains have started, some may say a little early but it doesn’t matter they are here and your hair is going to start looking like Simba from Lion King 🦁 if you’re not game ready. 


There are a few things that can help we thought it best to share so you don’t end up looking like a crazy Freek!

  • Yes keratin can help, it’s not rebounding, it’s not a cure all but it does reduce frizz a lot if you have curly or frizzy hair it’s a great time to get it done now. 
  • Conditioner and we always say use it because it closes the cuticle and prevents moisture escaping or getting inside the hair and causing the frizz
  • A leave in serum, prevents moisture entering past the cuticle. 
  • Styling dust, whilst it’s designed to add volume by design soaks up moisture therefore helping prevent frizz
  • A light layer of hairspray regardless if you need it because this will help repel moisture. 
  • The right cut, it’s not a secret but if your hair is cut correctly for not only your face and lifestyle but also the texture. No matter what the situation it will survive.
  • Linseed treatments, we use Alfa Parf moisture to ensure the cuticle is closed tight and if it is, then less likely that frizz will happen. 

Keep in mind hair doesn’t have to be poker straight to look neat, nor does the curl need to be controlled, it’s about taming and working with what you have so you can look good no matter what the weather. 

When you’re looking for a thrill 

It’s true, at times life can go through ups and downs, times when everything is exciting and times when you fall asleep brushing your teeth. What is important that you don’t get “bored” with life rather the situation and spend all your energy to get out of that spot. Sure a quick thrill never hurt anyone but if you have seen it before it gets old, it’s the delivery that can change. 

So why on earth are we talking about flashers? Well people, we need to make sure we don’t get into a rut with out hair & look. It’s really easy once you have hair that works not to change it but often we go back to what we know vs doing something that is different. 

What we need to remember is that people tend not to see your internal changes, often saying “I know you” for the last 10 years yet you have changed so much yet you may look and sound the same.  If you look the same, chances are people will see you the same. It’s important to develop your look as well as your personality to make sure life is turning.  

The naked truth about long AF hair

Now I’m sure some blokes love a girl  that’s so long that if you forget the rope to tie up the stuff in the Ute you could use a few metres from her hair. But do girls really like hair that could easily double as a bum warmer?

Now if you are a girl reading this, you would completely relate to removing the hair from you know where, hardly a nice task nor one we talk about. 

Go to the gym, do squats expose your butt and cut your hair!

Respect for all the times you had to dig deep and fish out the 100 odd hairs you loose every single day!✌🏻

Finally a pill to grow hair back! 

Scientists have discovered the cure for loosing our hair and a way to grow a full head of hair. It was last Friday a group of scientists in a small town approximately 15km outside Baldocia in northern Romania found the Gene that has been on the run since the dawn of time. 

Exhausted the Gene said to the scientists “it was fun running at first, but to be honest once we saw everyone just shaving there head well it just didn’t seem like people were willing to play anymore” Left a little disgruntled and angry over everyone’s loss in attitude it feels like playing hide and seek with your Auntie who is meant to be looking after you while your mum and dad go out but she is too busy swiping on tinder, said one of the Genes. A murmer and chuckle from the back of the group saying it was encouraging that some people were rubbing fruit, oil and even pulped onions on there head, it was as if they thought this shit would work 😂

Cornered and tired after centuries avoiding discovery the group of small genes with there over blown ego sat panting looking somewhat pale and exhausted. 


Police asked them what they were looking forward to most, they all said that a good shower and sulfate free shampoo was the first thing they wanted. 

Once we have more information we will share. 

You got your hair advice from the fruit guy?

Recently we heard of a woman who went to get a skin treatment from a dermatologist ( someone who studied skin ) and came out with the most obnoxiously wrong advice for her hair that involved home remedies and things that would send her hair for a complete toss! 


Sure the advice given possibly had the best intentions but wrong on every way. The problem here is it’s like asking a guy who sells fruit how to cook a steak, it’s not his job although he may suprise us all and know. He may even give you some home remedies to fight off a cold or give you a complete juice detox to cure diebeties or even cancer but let’s be honest it’s unlikely. 

If your serious about your hair, go to a professional salon, not someone who really isn’t qualified on hair. If you want skin advice we won’t give it to you, you want your makeup done we don’t do it. We do hair, we are trained in hair, not how to cook steak, home remedies on stain removal or how to stop your husband from snoring. 

We all like to hear the sound of our voice and maybe you just wanted to ask everyone you met, get as much opinion as possible then decide.  Well because it’s what we do we know our business better than others so if you have random questions don’t hesitate to drop us a line on email or social media. 

Sorry not sorry

Was asked today who is our target market and it got me thinking…. immediate thoughts were not people who would ask “who is your target market” lol that too in a packed salon to ask “Who comes here” 😶

Via @Arsenic

So thought we should spell it out for you, we do hair, we do beautiful sexy AF hair, that is not driven on anything other than giving you a beautiful looking head 🙊

We are not sorry for how we communicate, it’s the way we talk, it’s real. 

Fresh never goes on Sale

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!

Sunday the perfect day to get yourself refreshed

Sundays are like natures ctl alt delete where we spend the full 24hrs knowing we do not have to think about work ( unless your work Sundays in which case life really does suck )

A sleep in, breakfast in bed and take your time changing and showering sounds like a good day! A perfect day with loved ones is the best!


But what if you looked at things differently? Instead of thinking Sunday was a day to recover rather think of it as a day to refuel? Get inspired and recharge your batteries?

We open Sundays 11-6pm and can make sure that your putting your best foot forward from Monday.

How to get Mug shot hair on fleek

So you’ve been caught doing something illegal after a heavy night on the turps. No one is blaming you, we know he deserved it, with with you girl but your hair looks like you spent the night in the back of the taxi…… parked ( if you know what I mean )

A good cut would have allowed you to shake the nonsense out of it and most likely look ok but instead you got yourself possibly the worst mug shot, god help you the media doesn’t get hold of it or you will be reminded of that buy one get one free cut you got forever!

Come see us before the weekend because you never know when your going to get caught! 

Call us on 011-41010011

It’s Monday and it just doesn’t feel natural 

Some things are forced and others just happen, Monday’s are the former no matter who you are they tend to be a little more like punishment if your head is not looking at it the right way. 


Now it’s a choice, you can either go through it kicking and screaming or smile and think positive. Either way it’s going to be hard but at least when you give it your best and do it with a smile it’s going to go fast and maybe you will have a laugh or two!

If your struggling then why not try your hair done ✅ 

Is body hair Art a thing?

So imagine your bored out of your head with nothing to do, no TV, it’s too hot outside and all your friends are at work.

lol 

Catch ya outside 😂

When reinventing was about being original

In the search for more attention, more market share, better reach and global exploitation everyone is pushing themselves to be better that everyone else. 


No excel are not doing stories like everyone else, although I’m sure the same people who simply copy everyone else would love to see figures vs what your physically doing. Reaching your target market is not about being like everyone else, standing out is not about price, it’s about being the best version of you possible. Long gone are the days when people want a “one stop shop solution” ( it’s almost considered a negative to even say it now! ) yet people and companies are still stuck in the late 90’s when boundaries were smaller and marketing and reach did not have the same mechanisms as it does today. 

Problem is majority of people designing marketing plans or marketing budgets are so ( excuse me for saying this ) OLD both physically but mentally and think Facebook is the go too tool! Information in and out is what needs to stream in real time, bloggers write about things happening literally while they happen, proactive business owners do the same 24/7 because it’s who they are not what they need to be. 

People buy relationships, not products and no one gets excited by a “me too” product or service, people get excited about creativity and originality. 

You get one life!

It’s such a common phrase, some people have the best excuses and at times it would be easy to sit down and give up, not try, not put in effort and maybe just maybe most people would. But we are put on this earth, given life and it’s a gift, shouldn’t you make the most of it?

Shouldn’t you be a positive influence in people’s lives? Isn’t that what it’s about?

It’s one day or Day one, you decide!

When you wake up beside a Gorilla

It can be a shock when the sun comes up and the headbands are out, the last season top knot is out and beside you is something from planet of the apes 🦍 


Guys, home hair care is as important for you if not more! Guys don’t wear makeup ( well most don’t ) so with the one task we have we should be game on at level 10, 24/7. 

Best to plan ahead, have a plan A and a plan B ( we are referring to your hair!) Carry some serum if it’s long so you don’t look like a sea creature the next day. Always replace hair tie if your hair is long, nothing more disgusting than a hair tie that is covered with hair, if it has lost its elastic it also is not doing its job.  

Next time you get your hair cut ( should be every 5-6 weeks ) get some options on how to wear it different ways. Otherwise you become boring to look at. 

When can’t even control your Tv

Your boss is a pain in the butt, your partner is annoying AF everyone at work bosses you around like your living in some communist regime!


Well chill out you don’t have to dictate to your hair to get it to behave and fall in line. In fact you shouldn’t have too and a few things to help you along the way are:

  1. Always get your hair done every 6-8 weeks. You can’t get it done every 3-4 months and expect  it to look fresh. 
  2. Shampoo and condition daily. Yes daily
  3. Don’t over process your hair, just because getting a keratin is cheap or on special, very few people actually need it!
  4. Oil on your hair? NO never. Oil weighs down your hair, coats the cuticle and evaporates the internal moisture. Leaving hair dry brittle and frizzy! It’s a myth doing oil massages. 
  5. Always condition and use  a serum, if you don’t then your hair will get tangled, dry out and split. 

Don’t try to control people, control your choices. 

How not to look like a tiger

Imagine you want to have the color  with the supple variation of a house cat but you walk out looking like a tiger?! 

Whilst brand is important for condition and reaching desired color, it is the person applying the color that has to know the right techniques in order for it to look right. Heads of hair are never the same and whilst we all see cookie cutter style advertising on get this get that for xyz, the reality is it’s not about price, product or location it’s about having the right skill set to be able to achieve it!

Whilst tigers are endangered, the stripped look may have been in for the 80’s and certainly a eye catcher for a fashion show but on your hair daily, it’s really not that cool.  

You woke up with a hairy gorilla?

You wake up and see it, you freak out, sure you might have had a wild night and there was a bit of hair pulling but this amount?!


You loose 75-120 hairs per day and your pillow case is white, chances are you know the feeling first thing in the morning. No need to freak out chances are your not sleeping on a satin pillow case! The hair is already fallen but lodged in amoungst your hair so I bet you it’s not even close to 50 hairs ( if your that obsessed count them ). 

Regular washing & conditioner is perfectly safe and in fact we suggest it. 
So before you start stressing because you have woken up with a pillow full of hair, be glad you didn’t wake up with a stranger!

Money but no honey

In a world in which we all are born thinking we have the right to do or be anything we want and you do! Some things money just can’t buy but there are some things it can too!

There was a doctor, a great doctor, not the best doctor but he was good ok very good. He wasn’t so busy so he advertised offering half price operations, good operations, maybe the best, hard to say but they were good. 

Public perception was simple and in fact reality, his skills turns out we’re not the best, in fact not that good even a fair bit less than good sadly. His work needed to be discounted, after all it’s a 50/50 chance your going to get through his procedures, which is still better than the 100% without maybe. 

When it comes to hair, we believe to give you the best we can not cut corners or it’s only a matter of time before best goes to good then basic then basically no good!

We believe in providing great hair, for a set price that enables us to do it not only today but to be able to train and grow to do it not only next time but next year. Cheap hairdressing is just that and we want to be delivering quality not cheap. 

We got Passion in the bag not coupons

So much money so little passion in building brands or companies that makes you wonder if tomorrow they will be around?


Starting anything generally comes from an idea, sometimes a random one or worst because someone said there is good money in it. Chances are most things will make money but if that is your primary focus it’s never going to happen. Having been hairdressing almost 30 years I have been told by so many during this time, forget money focus on quality and money will come. For the most part salons around the world are owned and run by hairdressers that get it, they have fire in there belly and passion to be the best. 

When it comes to building a brand, you can’t just create a very functional PDF and think to yourself, cool that’s what our brand stand for and that’s what we will do. Reality is no one that is part of the brand will either believe you or give a shit, most intelligent people see your copy paste mentality it’s kind of lame!

Culture of a brand comes from the people and without passion in the culture your just another salon doing the same old thing. Value isn’t about money, brand isn’t about me too, brand building is about passion and being the best version of you possible.  

Don’t get it, come see us and feel the difference up close because we are loving it?

Hair magicians 

You have got the perfect reference, taken a booking and got your hair done only to see it looks nothing like the photo you showed the hairstylist the next day and you have no idea why or how to change it!


It’s super important we all get on the same page, hairdressers are not magicians but a good hairstylist will teach you how to recreate the look that you leave the salon with so everyday you love the look. Obviously the cut is the foundation to it all, if that’s not right then no amount of product or blow drying will fix it so the cut is super important. 

What products?

Very rarely will your bathroom consist of the endless supply that a salon has so it’s important you speak to your stylist on which ones you have to have and which ones would be good to have, it may mean getting one this visit and the rest next time. You should know how to use it, how much to use of it. 

Before leaving the salon a good stylist will explain the how, when, why, why not, the how hot & how cold to which direction to blow the hair as well as styling options. 

Good luck & see you soon!

Pizza on the beach?

Your the type of personal who finds pizza on the beach more appealing than a stiff dinner in a hotel then Sea Salt Spray is your jam & we have your back girl! 

Now understand the difference between beach waves & Beach curl is beach waves are typically constructed ( styled that way ) vs beach curl which is more about creating or enhancing the natural movement ( or texture as so many want to call it ). 


Now both are great styles to use Sea Salt spray on without booking a trip to an island beach here goes

How to use it the best

A few pumps at roots and a few pumps throughout the hair when it’s fairly damp

If you want it messy spray don’t comb and let it dry naturally

For beach waves apply the same and style 

Our favourite product & the one we use is Label M Sea Salt


You got a mouth full of hair?

Nothing worst than going in and getting a mouthful of hair, kind of a mood breaker if your locks are not maintained!

Shaving it could be an option but let’s talk Maintainence in case you don’t want to go bald. Guys with stubble, their face will act like Velcro and your hair will stick all over his face, which in itself can be ok unless your out with friends or family. Then it can look like things are getting hot when it was just an innocent peck intended. 
Let’s start with a few things you can do to prevent this!

  • Leave in serum like Cristali liquid by Alfa Parf which closes the cuticle and keeps the cuticle surface smooth. 
  • Regular trims, removes split ends which in turn creates smoother surface. 
  • Pony tail, keep it high which will keep your face and neck free for playtime. 
  • Pre planning is better if you can manage to shampoo and condition before it’s better, remember the smell of your shampoo on wet hair is like a wet dog, it’s not cool so dry it!
  • A little perfume inside your hair so he can’t smell the smoke from the night before your hair absorbed in the club ( when you said you were home watching re runs of friends)

We hope this helps you not giving your guy fur balls, the rest is up to you!

Boxes are for pigeons not people! 

You are either out of internet coverage or live under a rock if you haven’t seen what’s going on in American this week that is and will effect the world. Everyone has an opinion and we certainly have ours but what’s most disturbing is the shift in what is considered ok in terms of human treatment. 


You can’t put everyone in the same box, I see it as do I’m sure a lot of others do too but daily we all do it and it’s just plain wrong. 

Just because of your faith doesn’t make you a terrorist, being born in a certain country doesn’t make you violent, born into a certain cast or specific area be a certain type of person. Light skin, dark skin that, fat be this, skinny be that, tall this, short that it’s just plain black and white descrinination! Justify it in your head, I’m sure you can but at the end of the day it’s wrong! 

The features on your face, the clothes you wear or the point in which you reach vertically to the length of your hair, your beauty is unique, it’s individual and your you. Yet we have people screaming  descrimination for Trump when daily we see the same thing happen. The difference is I guess the old train of thought where these “old school” ( should retire and step aside) people were and I say we’re literally, years ago relevant as too would be the rasist attitude of Trump and his supporters. 

It’s 2017, what feels like the verge of either civil war or global tensions being at the highest point for decades. We have to reset all our mindset on everything, what religious faith you have, skin color, where you were born, your skin color, height, weight and everything in between and start treating people as individuals not trying to put them in a box when you have no idea who they are. 


Respect everyone as equal and unique!

How to go offline with bangs!

So a lot of you take the lap top to bed, be checking Facebook & Instagram  before sleeping and wonder why there isn’t much else happening under the covers. Well if your at that stage we can’t help because your probly reading this when your bae is beside you, what we can do is make your life complete with getting the other type of bangs 


Yes it’s true bangs are the easiest and quickest way to change your look so what happens if you have bangs?

Off line bangs

This is when you take your current bangs and blend them in with the rest of your hair when styling. Doesn’t matter if it’s short or long it can be done quickly and creatively. 

So before you start ordering costumes online to spice things up why not take yourself and your bangs offline

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!

They keep pushing it you keep swallowing it!

I don’t know when the day your average consumer will wake up and realise the utter crap some people shove down your mouth like it’s French fries 🍟


The sad reality is most dumb people believe it, the stupid Ines doing it and the stupid ones buying into it.  We see miracles that can make your hair silky in 10 minutes, the cheapest and the best this or that and yet no one wonders how? It’s called marketing if you were in 1980 but I guess thats another conversation, the cheaper faster best era where everyone claimed to be the best and the cheapest until the consumer got smarter and realised they wanted salons they could relate too and communication become more about reality than selling crap! 


Bar code standard talk is almost scripted and funnily I know people who teach scrips, this is a personal industry and words have to evolve organically. The only way that can happen is by education and not teaching scripts or standard one size fits all hairdressing.  

Words of wisdom, educate yourself and research salons not just browse a Facebook post it’s your hair. Personality sells

When your color fades like your sex life

You meet and can hardly keep your hands off each other to make coffee and a few months/Year  later you meet with a little peck. You get your color done and it’s as hot and deep as your hottest one night stand, several weeks later it’s faded and as lifeless as your sex life!


Don’t worry we can help you with getting your color intensity back, the other stuff you will need to work on yourself but I suggest getting your color on will help you feel hot so who knows!

Alfa Parf have created Pigments ( don’t worry its s professional product so no technical info is here just the awesome results)

It work as direct color pigment and is more gentle than your regular color as it’s watered down with shampoo or can be added in with your regular color also! It creates longer lasting depth more than regular colors. 

You can do it as a quick service I. Between your regular colors to freshen up the intensity so you don’t have to damage your ends doing unnecessary “global colors” that will damage and cost you money you can spend on candles or flavoured lube to fix you other problems, well because we fix hair rest is up to you to get back on track. 

Before
After


So now you have no reason to have faded color. Available in multiple reflects!

Hair frizzy & fried?

You saw a photo of silky soft hair and thought yes, I want that now your left with hair that looks like frizz and neither straight or curly. 


Expectations vs reality are at times different and yes the stylist should have explained it and been more truthful but whatever the issue was it needs to be fixed. Here are some solutions but we recommend visiting a professional salon to determine exactly what is needed. 

  • If it’s rebonding it could be over processed which means your hair is on the verge of snapping. Olaplex will prevent it to some extent however removing some length may be only option. 
  • If it’s keratin it may have reduced the curl, depending on how curly it was to start with. This may be the success and final result as best you can achieve. 
  • You may have had too much color applications on top of each other which has caused the hair structure to be too weak to restructure itself. 

Will a ” series of hair spa ” treatments fix this? Easy answer is never

If the structure of the hair is Brocken so badly that hair comes off ( snaps off, not from roots but mid lengths ) then the only two options you have is to either cut it off  or have consistent Olaplex or similar treatments which will rebuild and strengthen it enough to hold it together until it’s cut off. 


Sadly some salons push such chemical services based on increasing revenue with little regard for quality of your hair or result and when things go south they will tell you a series of hair spa treatments will fix it. It won’t. 

Advice

Before you do any chemical service do your research and remember if the hair has had any color at all and that hasn’t been cut off regardless if it looks natural, it’s still there and needs to be treated with care.
