If your looking for a disaster keep cutting out the coupons! If you have a disaster give us a call because we are the most respected, awarded hair Salon in India and can get you out of the river!
So your the type of person who crashes at your friends place, always leaves your wallet at home & always look for the cheaper way to get things done.
Now whilst we all hate you, because your constant cry poor nonsense and your constant buying of clothes, shoes and electronics ( yes we all noticed! ) you try mixing home remedies for your hair because you think it’s cheaper!
Well the biggest problem with trying to duplicate experience when it comes to hair color or hair care is that hair depth, density, strength and porosity varies dramatically from person to person and then vary from month to month. With that being said a “home remedy” or a DIY today may work, tomorrow may be a total disaster. A harmless Color that your told is “natural” makes even the most mild bleech react and turn your hair to straw!
I guess it’s only when things go terribly wrong, you realise that there may be more to this than your grandmothers remedies. Before trying to do things yourself, always get professional advice from a professional salon.
An important fact to remember, the home remedies done 100 years ago were done on hair that was exposed to far less than it is today. Pollution, chemicals in water, chemicals in food and the list goes on. It’s a complete different world today that we are exposed too than it was 20,30,50 years ago.
You may have grown up eating meat and two veg type food ( boring and a little basic ) or in India Dhal & rice. That doesn’t mean that there are not more options out there, because there are endless possibilities.
Just like your wardrobe, although obviously any hairdresser will typically lean towards black, hair color options are far greater that a base color and a few highlights. It’s your blank canvas that expresses who you are and your personality.
You don’t have to be outrageous or OTT it just has to be an extension of your personality.
Why wait, give your hair salon a call and give your hair some color!
It’s a topic that most guys have had, could be with themselves a friend or a partner but it’s happened for sure!
Now if your wanting to get your score card up apart from learning how to use your tools it may be time for you to look at your reflection and working on becoming an Urban guy with a few changes to your hair care regime.
So guys if you think you could use a little help, in the later then give us a call 📱 01141010011
A girl is more worried about who you are and how you look more than what your packing. 🌭
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.
- 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.
Seems most of the country is having a sale, 50% off or end of season sale yet is that one or two new items in your wardrobe going to give you a fresh new look?
We can already hear you say “yes it will!” But chances are within minutes of your squad seeing it the shine will be gone and back in the wardrobe it will go. The sad reality is when you get something new that you love you can’t wear it daily or it risks looking like it’s the only thing you have!
Now a fresh new cut or color will have a longer WOW factor both externally to your crew as well as give you that “I feel great” feeling 24/7 no matter what you wear at a small portion of the outfit your eyeing off. Therefore it makes better sense to get yourself into the salon than heading to the mall this Monsoon!
Now you guys only even listen to 50% of what you hear so we are going to add more text here in the hope that by doing so you will actually read the bits that count. Ok?
Adding texture is the key to the look, it’s done it two parts, the cut then the styling and the perfect product is a Matt paste.
Tip – trim it every 5-6 weeks, shampoo daily and use your hands only when blow drying as it needs to look natural
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.
A very common request we get almost daily is ” make it big!” Now unlike your boyfriends labido when he was 17 it’s not that simple and isn’t for everyone.
Different shaped faces, heads, bodies etc etc and big hair is NOT flattering on everyone, it just isn’t. In fact a lot of the time can make the person look like they have gained 5kg or you completely loose the face amoungst the bush of hair!
Face shape matters, puff or body is not like a side of fries 🍟 that you order regardless if you want or need it. Only go to a professional Salon.
We all read star signs and at times anything could be written and we would be like, OMG that is so me!
But when it comes to hair and getting the perfect haircut we know people better than anyone.
Here is what we know about cancerians that will make you realise that it’s time to change salons!
How to choose the right way!
You have given way too many chances to get it right, sure you thought that offering a step by step on your weekly blow out eventually would work yet guess what it hasn’t helped.
You’re tired of turning up on time only to find your stylist cramming in everyone on planet earth before you.
Over being told your hair is too this or that, seems like even tho they are in control of your hair nothing is good enough, it’s too long too short, too dry, too flat bla bla
Sarcasm is your friend and your happy to be low key then it’s about time your dropped in.
Admit it, you have at some point thought why not, why not have a little pastel color and yet you haven’t done it yet.
So many decisions, do you go washed out, full blown mermaid, rainbow 🌈 or a solid hello how you doing fully Lit version. Well we can’t answer that only you can but let’s look at the next step if you do it then decide to change it.
If you have natural color and no color in it then your options are almost endless, if you have been colouring your hair black for the past decade then your options are limited but you still have options. The best way to color hair is to ensure the integrity of the structure of the hair whilst achieving the desired color. If you leave it in the right state then changing each time is always going to be an achievable.
There is always some things that need to be done in the salon and some things you should be doing at home to make sure your hair is in its optimal condition.
Now Monsoon season is coming anyone with curl is already dreading it, a few drops of rain and your hair looks like a frizz ball so how can you fix it or better still how can you prevent it?
Well prevention is far better than cure, so a few things you can do now to prevent being a walking hair disaster once it’s raining everyday.
- Don’t underestimate regular trims, every 6-8 weeks regardless. This removes split ends and keeps the ends in the best possible condition.
- Always use conditioner, a leave in serum daily. This will keep the cuticle closed and prevent moisture getting inside the hair structure and creating unwanted frizz.
- If it gets wet, dry it as quickly as possible.
- Keratin good or bad? Well depending on your hair condition and texture but it certainly helps relax the hair and prevent the monsoon frizz.
Remember that a little preparation will get you through these crappy months. Using the right products and making sure you are not overdoing anything, the condition is paramount, look after that and your halfway there.
Recently Rod was invited to Hair Expo Australia by Alfa Parf Australia to demonstrate his cutting on stage.
Hair Expo Australia is one of the Worlds most respected gathering of talent when it comes to hair. Teaming up with Edoardo Paludo who coloured all the models hair in his bespoke mother of pearl technique.
Sharing his experience and journey, it was a honour to be part of the 4 days says Rod
Sometimes in life you need to add an element of color!
When we talk technically about a cut, be it the structure or the way it creates the right shape for your face shape it’s about creating a look that is multi dimensional. To do that we have to use depth and tone using color.
One of the most exciting and creative things that has happened in recent years is Neon colors ( yes they glow in the dark! ) Alfa Parf Milano, has a range of Neon colors that are amazing. Now before you say ” yeah I don’t think my boss would appreciate me coming in with glow in the dark hair” it’s doesn’t have to be a solid color.
What is fantastic about this type of color is that the lasting power is second to none, lasting months without fading issues.
Depending on your comfort levels and placement, it can be something that pops only when the hair moves or it can be as loud or creative as you like, basically a unicorn or a mermaid to a little hidden pop it’s up to you.
Every 6 weeks you visit the salon in search of something fresh, something new almost like a miracle. Well we are but there are some things we can’t change based on facts.
Every hairdresser on the planet has heard the line
I want to keep the length, no layers, no bangs, no color but want something completely different.
Now we are not saying your crazy but if you re read the above it should make you re think your sanity. The best way for change if you’re feeling like you don’t want to give anything up, is small changes each visit. Let some length go this visit, change the color slightly the next. Make it a evolution over a few visits to not only keep the excitement going but also keep yourself feeling safe.
No matter where you look you see color and it changes your perception of life when you see certain colors your mind reacts and feelings are born. Blue skies create happy feelings, grey skies and you feel like curling up in bed all day.
Doesn’t matter if your color goals are to be as loud as a My little pony doll or as subtle as playing a Led Zeplin song backwards it’s all possible. The only way you will get a color that not only matches your cut and face is if you have an in depth discussion with a professional and assess the options.
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!✌🏻
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.
Once we have more information we will share.
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.
Don’t know what you were taught as a child but we got drilled into us, do it right the first time.
Maybe your parents vibe was get it cheaper, or do it yourself?
I’m often surprised with a country with over 1 BILLION people in it, when it comes to getting off or on a plane, everyone is in a hurry. If you ask the same people during there normal week to speed things up, maybe less than 10% would even reply yet alone shake it up any faster. But when boarding a plane everyone is in a hurry and impatient. The plane could have literally just landed and still moving but there will be a flurry with people getting up to get out. Is there over 1 billion rebels 😝 in the country or just impatient people?
Now imagine if you had the same feeling in your life 24/7 where your actions were at this speed?
If you wanted to change, you didn’t become lazy you just did it. Imagine a life that once your mind decided to do something, you just did it. You never consulted every member of your family or neighbourhood you just went for it.
After all who are we following and where are we going in such a rush? To collect our bags right? Hardly going anywhere.
Put the same effort into your life as you do getting off your flight and watch your life change overnight.
Wear this, wear that
Do this, do that
Don’t talk to this guy, don’t be friends with that guy.
It’s ok to have an opinion of things it’s another to tell people what to do, after all it’s your life. Strangely it happens every single day, kids are told what jobs they should have, what to study, what friends to have and yes in 2017 who to marry and where to live. Now without getting into a debate on all of it we think your hair is our battle so it’s important we fight the good fight.
The way we look when we see our ref election changes the way we feel about ourselves, I’m sure your friends and loved ones want you to have a healthy self esteem right?
Have a little fun with your hair, could be mild or it could be dramatic but think of it as an extension of who you are, it’s showing the world your personality on your head.
Information is always part of the story, heart and passion can not be put into a graph and whilst your teacher loved to offer you examples in a pie graph or apples it will never ever be a real picture if your not doing it for the right reasons.
Maybe because the people doing it are in a race? Fastest, biggest, most this most that, not really sure what the motivation is to be in it other than to cash out who knows.
Well we are not a bakery, we don’t bake pies, although if we did they would be colourful and you wouldn’t need to cover them in ketchup in order to eat them. But we don’t. We do hair, our business is hair, our focus is hair, our education is hair and our drive is to be the best.
Just amazing hair!
Honestly if seeing this face doesn’t make you feel ill, then you should check yourself into an institution but leave that aside!
If you didn’t hear, Apparently there is no such thing as Climate change, which even a 4 year old child 👶🏻 knows it’s a real issue that is not going away, something we all need to not only worry about but fight to find a solution for.
Make a small change, we all do it and we are on the way!
A good hairstylist’s job is to extract information, perception and images out of your head. Analyse it and advise then recreate it.
This is not a “choose from the menu” type service, job or business. It’s about communication, being able to relate to people after all no matter what a company advertises it’s only as good as the people delivering it.
Hairdressers are a strange bunch ( we are, seriously 😳) we read into everything, think a lot and tend to like the sound of our own voices or those in our head at the least. The skill of consultation to be able to get inside someone’s mind is something that we learn over time and is the foundation of what we do.
References certainly help, so if you stumble across something that inspires you save it and bring it in because it could be the inspo needed to create magic.

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” 😶
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.
When you get it right it can be euphoric, seems like all the stars aligned and everything on the planet works. The birds are singing, the sky is blue, it’s just bloody right, right?
It’s ok sunshine, when we said we want to see you in 6 weeks we knew you would be feeling like this.
Always have a game plan for the next two visits to keep you excited with what your doing, could be growing out the bangs, going slightly lighter or shorter. Having a plan, with a date is always always going to have better chances of exceeding your expectations than randomly stumbling month to month then calling someone to fix it at the last minute!
A plan, a prior booking and good advice you’re on your way to getting a steady stream of hair love ☔️
