While it seems like everyone is scraping their hair to show build up its not so obvious that while a lot of it could be build up from product, pollution, oiling it could also be damaged cuticles that you are scraping off!
If you feel your hair is dull and lifeless it could be the products you are using and the things you are doing that are in fact causing it. Oiling your hair whilst it gives you shine by coating the hair can over time cause more damage by creating a film that dehydrates the hair structure and prevents anything from helping. It will look shinny but feel rough to touch.
Try re assessing your hair care regime using a sulfate free ( SLS) shampoo and always using a conditioner. Avoid over heating your hair and use heat protecting products when possible. During summer if you are outside in the sun wear a hat or scarf to avoid direct sun!
The color can play a big part in how it looks and the relationship with shine also. It may need variation added to your color to create depth.
If you feel like it just lacks shine there is a gloss color that adds shine to your hair without any damage! Ask us how!
This year has taught us a lot, always have wine in the cupboard, keep adding to your watch list on Netflix and have a hair plan that’s low Maintainence. Having to head to a salon every few weeks whilst it’s fine if you can, we we suddenly can’t then what will you do. Having hair that’s low maintenance is the ultimate guide to 2021 for your hair!
Certainly tools like the Dyson air wrap helped as a lot still wanted their beach curls during lockdown. Then we had the color regrowth situation that has changed white hair forever and it’s a great thing! Getting roots show white and having to stress over it literally a few days after doing it taught a lot of people that coming to grips with the fact their hair isn’t black or dark brown any more has been great! The further away from your natural color ( the color your hair is now, not what it was when you were 18 ) you color your hair the faster you will need to do it.
Then there was guys who had overgrown sideburns day 4 of lockdown. The idea of a fade was considered too short, now it has become the normal.
Getting a cut that works for your hair & lifestyle is the ideal way to be able to live your life and visit us around that versus making hair appointments around travelling or social functions. If you haven’t changed thing up yet and need help, we are here and only too happy to discuss with you a way to get a little less stress in your life!
Do you spend more than 2 minutes telling everyone how bored you are every day?
You don’t have to have a University degree to realise that 2020 sucks harder than the most expensive vacuum cleaner in history. It does and for a lot of people most likely more than you, since you are reading this puts you above the majority. There are people dying, starving, leaving on the streets and struggling just to get through today so in reality you are already one of the more fortunate ones!
If you keep telling yourself you are bored, chances are it’s not going to help matters at all. Instead focus on the fact that you have so many positive things in your life! There is literally a few years of rubbish to watch on Netflix, you can learn a language, read a book, write a book, learn how to meditate or simply spend your day on social media or you can choose to be productive. It’s not that you are bored maybe just that you have too many choices, aren’t you lucky!
If none of that sounds like enough fun then give us a call and come get some fresh hair!
For many around the world, the idea of working from home sounds great but completely useless if you are in the service industry, there appears like not a lot you can do from home. It’s a great time to get fit, learn something online or think of ways to pivot your business for the future.
We are blessed to meet some people who have used this time to actually start businesses and are booming! We had one client who has started an Indian snack business and has now 20 staff and small factory, a friend launched a healthy smoothie bowl business and is booming now. The stories are widespread and teaches us to think outside the box. There are opportunities right now that most can’t be bothered or simply don’t know how too take advantage of.
I know boredom and anxiety set in from day one for most including us, the thought of indefinite lockdown was daunting. Eleven weeks indoors in the end with restriction of movement limited to buying food and that’s it. We spent hours every day creating content for our website that was relevant for now and maintained interaction with our clients via Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp.
We had 321% increase in web traffic which in return we all know that means more business, more visibility and entertained us at the same time. Two months later we have maintained the traction and have inevitably changed the course of our business. through smart planning and a little research a lot things can be done or learnt in your underwear from the couch, bed or in front of the TV
Before you find excuses look for solutions and a way to make the current situation a positive. If you need help or ideas reach out to a friend or a company and ask for help, now is not the time to watch re-runs of friends or your favourite 90’s sitcoms.
Honestly we have tried telling you to stop stocking up on product for the sake of it, buying just because you think it will be the one product that will change your life. Maybe it will be maybe it won’t.
To have the right products that work for you and your haircut takes trial and error to some extent but there has to be a limit. We have stopped selling products to people like you, we request you get a bag and bring it all in so we can decide what you should use and what you should give away.
Enough is enough!
If this sounds like you then go get the bag, fill it up and give us a call. Advice is free but the storage you are wasting in your house is honestly annoying and wasteful.
Hairstylist’s have now been given the term hair artists for the obvious reasons.
They create shape, color all using a natural product to sit and move in a certain way to create a visual form. Using various colors and textures all with the goal to create a look, that with the skill and various techniques allow you to re create it daily for several months. Now that’s Art!
The outline may be the same but what you do with what’s inside the lines defines you!
No more need for injections or a scalpel to get your hair growth issues in order!
Yes ok you got me, there is no cure! But we will say a few things to clear the air so there is no bad feelings and you didn’t end up opening this as a total waste of time, because we know your doing this at work and time is money!
Ok so you have googled it to the end of the planet and still can’t find a cure, maybe there isn’t one?
Hair growth is for the most part hereditary and portion effected by what you eat, the environment and small portion to what goes on your head. Hair grows inside your body not outside, oils and lotions are topical meaning the best they can do is penetrate the first layer of your skin ( at best ) so in short anything you put on your scalp thinking it’s going to make it grow back or make it grow thicker is in fact false.
What you need!
Sounds basic but you need a good hair care regime, a good cleanser and a routine that does not allow bacteria to grow on your scalp as this is a huge contributor to infection which then leads to increase hair loss. Problem you will tell us is you only want to wash it every third day because you needs to blow dry it bla bla bla. Well decide what you want, hair or good hair this week?
Now your scalp perspires and there is dirt and pollution in the air and it needs to be removed so daily is always the best when it comes to shampooing. Use a sulfate & parabin free shampoo. We use Alfa Parf but if you want to research please do and get one.
Now before you start putting oils or lotions on your scalp which will do nothing but block the pores and attract pollution, coat your hair and dehydrate it more than anything else. Get the basics right.
If your a mechanic and your fixing the Maruti Suzuki 800 you would kind of expect the mechanic to have the odd spanner or tools in his pockets or kit right?
It’s hardly acceptable if you go to the salon and the brush that’s going in your hair is sitting in the hairdressers back pocket just beside his butt is it?
Now whilst this photo was set up its sadly a reality in most salons in India, seems like the more things hanging out of pockets and clipped on your clothes the more important you are? Now I don’t know about you, but we think this is not only disgusting but also kind of looks stupid and unprofessional besides it’s dirty AF.
So you have thought about it, possibly had one ( maybe the wrong one or a half hearted one ). Well now it’s getting warmer rather than have all this hair all over your face maybe it’s the perfect time to get banged up!
This circa 80’s “side flick” is not as cool as it sounds unless your with your friends at the kitty party, it looks old and as cool as guys who wear there hair in top knots ( you all know that’s a no no !)
Totally on point, be it a solid bangs to a short micro one the choice is yours just do it!
There is never a day go by that someone doesn’t walk into a salon in some corner of the world and want hairstylists to perform miracles by adding volume. Yes it’s not always the most suitable fave shape to carry it off but we all want what we want right?
So let’s just imagine by adding fullness it will suit your face shape.
Dropping a few tricks to help you out so your not having to sleep upside down hoping it stays like that during the day.
Shampoo your hair regularly so oiliness doesn’t build up.
Use a light conditioner only on ends
A volumizing powder really really works, adds volume for hours
Dry your hair upside down or standing upright lifting it directly vertical when styling.
Dry shampoo helps give a little grit to the hair adding volume.
If the weight is heavy no matter what you do it will go flop, add layers or texture it helps.
Remove some length this will lighten the load and help give it more volume.
The right cut can make all the difference but a little tool like “dust it” by Label M helps create the fullness that maintains the shape longer. Get some hands on tricks and suggestions from your stylist next time you get a blow out.
What crap! Give me a week on the beach any day I say, but I do know that feeling when life has become a little boring, your routine has become more like a checklist rather than a life. Well maybe it’s time to spice things up?

Looking for the easiest way to change your look then maybe it’s time you got banged up 😜. Here are some various options of bangs to make things a little easier to choose because by now you know any bang is not always a good bang ( pun intended )
Bangs are always in, depending on what suits you both fave shape as well as personality maybe it’s the change you need!
Gone are the days when your talk about your hair is 12-15 days I get it cut, sounds more like the routine of rotating your indoor plants rather than a hair plan!
Often we hear the same thing from guys, ” I want it short, should look different but can’t look different Monday to Saturday because I’m in a office”. Sound familiar? We can’t look and act like everyone and expect to be noticed no matter how good at what we do, we all need to keep everyone excited about our look and personality.
No you don’t have to shave your head to resemble a knob, but I guess if you did it sure would turn heads!
