You bought a new dress but you should have got your hair done

Most likely we have all done this, filled up the fridge with food then gone and got take away for dinner. More often than not it’s about what makes you feel good and if it means shoes then so be it! Do what you got to do to make it a happy day!

So if it’s a nice new dress or a blowout do it today you will feel better for it, don’t leave it in the cart!

Which Hair Salon to choose?

You want a haircut and you want it done right so who do you choose? The ones that claim to be the best? The biggest? The most luxurious salon in Delhi? Do you choose the salon that has the most locations? The one that has the most services? The salon that has the most celebrity clients?

Let’s be honest, it’s not that easy. It’s a matter of finding a salon & stylist that gets you, understands the language you speak, your ideas and your vision for your hair and you can talk freely with. It’s not about the awards, it’s not about how many “outlets” they have or the celebrity clients, it never has been! It’s about the personal skills along with the technical skills. You need both, not just one.

The best way to find that salon is start with the internet, look at the website and see if it’s about selling multiple services, packages, discounts or if it’s about hair, styles new ideas thoughts colors etc. you will instantly get the vibe if it’s for you or not!

YOU MUST USE THIS PRODUCT

There is nothing like a good clean out, can be your car, bathroom cabinet, spare bedroom or your closet full to the brim for the last 6 months. Our minds are exactly the same and every day, week and year we keep stockpiling utter crap into them, every now and then it’s good to wipe the slate clean and get a fresh viewpoint.

Now when it comes to cleaning out the bathroom cabinet we have a few tricks to not only save you money but also streamline your hair care regime so here goes!

  1. Pull out all the hair products, past and present and assess what needs throwing out and what needs using up asap
  2. Before you buy anymore finish what you have ( we always encourage finishing what you have UNLESS it’s harmful to your color.
  3. Sometimes ( sadly more often than it should ) you will be sold product that you simply don’t need or maybe you did then but your hair has changed. Write a list of what you have and show your hairstylist and see what needs to be put in the bin or replaced. If you have products you have no idea what they are or how to use it, take it with you next visit and ask.
  4. If it’s got 3 drops in it, please throw it out don’t hold on to it.
  5. Put them all back in the cupboard with the ones you need to use now and start using them!

If you want to get clear advise on what you need to maintain your hairstyle then give us a call and get yourself booked in!

When was the last time you felt good?

We have all neglected ourselves far too long now! Enough is enough! Those track pants you have been wearing for 2 straight weeks whilst they look good it’s just not you and let’s be honest it’s not helping you feel good, it’s comfy yes but come on!

Sloppy is fine and can be sexy too, this is not about making anyone feel good other than yourself!

Take a few hours off, wash your hair, give yourself a blowout, go get a fresh color, shop on line for something to put a smile on your face and then get back into work.

Limited appointments

So heads up, because of the way things are currently we have limited our Salon to one person at a time per stylist. If you want to be the only person in the salon we offer that also upon request. Everyone’s temperature is taken prior to entry and hand sanitiser must be used for every person entering the salon.

We know you are worried if things are safe, what the salon will be like and who else will be there. We are as concerned and want to make it a safe place and won’t be taking any chances.

Our door is locked, no booking no entry. Everyone has a mask on and we consult from a distance or available to do facetime consultations too prior to your booking which means less time in the chair.

We are not serving Coffee or Tea as your mask can not come off! We work around your mask so there is no need to stress, we will show you and help guide you when we need. If you are coloring pls wear a disposable mask otherwise the strong may be stained.

Don’t know about everyone else but waking up is hard, looking at my reflection asking myself how, why and a list of so many questions and wondering how can I get through each day. Well it starts with smaller steps I guess and do things that make you feel good.

Things will get better, this will end and your dreams will come true it’s just a moment in time!

So if your hair is annoying you or you simply are bored with your hair then get yourself something fresh! We are open and ready to make sure it’s not only a safe experience but you walk out feeling and looking better!

We are now open!

So after 10 weeks closed and the entire world stood still it’s time to slowly open back up. As of Wednesday 3rd we will be reopening the salon! Yes say good bye to that top knot and 4 inch regrowth it’s time to get your post lockdown game on!

Now while we want to make everyone happy, we also know there are limited hours in each day. We have extended our hours but you may still have to wait so get in early. We have made some adjustments to how we do things for the first few weeks which are based on what other countries have done in salons. We are limiting number of people in the salon at any point and there will be no waiting area open to anyone other than the people getting their hair done. Blow drying hair is the use of forcing air both around your head as well as forcing the air around the salon, which is not ideal. We will be doing color, cut and hand styling your hair with no heat.

Why no blow dry? Well air gets pushed around during the process causing the air around you to be circulated all through the salon, hence making social distancing useless. This we will reassess as we move forward but feel it’s the safest option for all.

As you can imagine, after almost 11 weeks closed we are all eager to get back and start feeling good however it’s important that we all do our bit to keep everyone safe.

For bookings you can slide us a DM or call 01141010011 from tomorrow!

The haircut you should have had before lockdown and why!

Hindsight is a great thing but also kind of useless. Regardless let’s look at what you could have done differently so you wouldn’t be climbing the walls right now!

Sure it’s only been 8 weeks but for some of you it was already 6 weeks when you got locked up so you have reached a level of desperation that you may never have experienced before. Good to hold on to that feeling for a bit because hair shouldn’t be that much work, god knows all these people you see online with good looking hair, how are they doing it?

The secret is actually not that secret, the way to have hair that behaves with little or no effort is getting a structurally sound cut that encourages your natural movement so your daily blowout is a thing of the past. Now sure that’s not going to help you now, we know but it’s time that your daily pony tail or top knot gets benched and you start loving your hair again isn’t it?

It’s not always about cutting your hair off it is about understanding how hair moves, managing your expectations of what it can and can not do. The longer the hair the less fullness you can create, even with layers. The shorter the hair the less weight it holds making it more flexible and free to move.

The Lob haircut is the in between length that still let’s you put it up as well as wear your hair down without fear of looking like you escaped from an institution. it’s not for everyone, depends on your hair texture, length, Faceshape and lifestyle.

Once we are open, give us a call and get a consultation on how we can help you love your hair again without spending hours every day!

Cant locate you

After over 10 years in India its a common phrase to delay life a little, sorry we couldn’t find you or its difficult to find! Short of floating a blimp balloon above the salon lets make life easy for you so you have to be more creative when you know you’re running late! Now the Senate in the United States struggle to understand google but lets be honest we are all a little smarter than them so lets lay it out for everyone how to find the Salon.

f2f70f1c2de3883696d983c29d84e779

Open google maps, it should be on your phone, unless your so old school ( which is fine ) on google maps there is a tab for you to type an address or business, this is it, type in ” Rod Anker Salons”  and click enter and follow the directions and your good to go!

I know right, its that easy, if you are getting close and because you have trust issues you don’t believe google then give us a call 011 4101001 We are beside Altitude Cafe and two doors away from Bombay Shirt company.

Honestly if you are not capable of finding us after all of this then I guess you should be home cutting your own hair!

What happens when your account is private

Its not weird to have your account on private, honestly I think it would be nice for a change instead of everyone knowing ( or at least think they know ) what your doing and your life. Following someone or liking an image has become almost as if it holds its own currency, there are people I know very very well and will mention a post that you have made yet never like any of your posts. I find it odd, but I guess each to their own and if thats what they feel like doing and it works for them then fine. Social media should not be such a focus but I guess considering it has bought the entire world and the wealth of information right into your pocket, it kind of does hold a lot of power, both good and bad! But when you have your account set on private know that most people unless its a good friend won’t bother following you, remember you are and will become who you follow!

We have all read that no one posts everything on instagram, its always a little filtered to make sure everything appears the way it should, now with everyone around the world doing it you can imagine that before you know it the bar is being lifted everyday!

If you want fame and fortune then having an account private because you don’t want your family or employer to know who you actually are, will only give you privacy. Sure the constant DM’s some that truly make your day and others that make you feel like you should delete your account get a bit much at times but overall you get out of it whatever you put into it.

Just like writing these posts, having an outlet is for some a very good way to express yourself!

Getting hair out of your butt crack, because we know hair better than anyone else

Fishing all the long hair that has fallen out, from your bum crack!?? Its not a new thing in fact act any woman who has long hair, they will all tell you it is a thing! ( that is they are being honest! )

Now how an you stop this annoying thing happening every time you shower? Well you can’t really but one thing you can try, remembering 100-175 hairs per day falling out is in the realm of “normal”  is brush it out before getting into the shower and wetting your hair. Add some serum from ends to roots and brush it out, any loose hair that are stuck amongst the other hair will now come out.

We know this is real because we know hair and thats a fact!

Your welcome, now you won’t have to be picking all those loose hairs from your, you know what!

 

 

Why we choose a ground floor for a salon

Getting your hair done is something that is meant to be pain free right? If you have to travel to a market that parking is a drama, you have to then walk through chaos to get to the salon to try and have some relax time and end up looking good and in reverse you have to get out of there and get back to your car right!

When we opened our flagship salon in Delhi we wanted to be ground floor and easy parking for our clients to make sure it wasn’t like trying to cross level 542 of Candy Crush just to get your hair done.

If you are after a hair salon in south Delhi that is open on the ground floor then you really need to give us a call 011 410 100 11

Apparently studies show that getting your hair done makes you feel 68% more rested and relaxed, well who believes these studies anyway right? Like how on earth does anyone get 68% figure out of it, not like we disagree in fact we agree with it but just saying.
