Are you copying a hairstyle?

Often hairdressers get photo references of celebrities hair that people love, which isn’t the bad thing. It’s human nature to gravitate towards someone we like or admire with clothes, holiday destinations.

Now while we love reference photos as it gives us an idea of what you like as well as what you don’t like but we have to remember your Face shape and hair is unique and the hair you love just may not work the same on you.

It may mean changing some elements of the reference to adapt to your hair and make sure it suits you and you can manage it the way you want.

We are all different and that we should embrace! You are unique and getting the right haircut from thr right Salon should be the focus. One that will help guide you and talk to you about what suits you!

Same but different from Celeste Barber
Same but different More funny photos

So before you blindly want something see if it’s going to suit you! For consultations please call 01141010011

Home of the most expensive haircut in India

If you are like a lot of people you tend to be on a constant lookout for a bargain and let’s be honest who doesn’t like one right! On face value a product X can be cheaper at one outlet compared to another and it’s exactly the same thing ( it’s a product that is made in the same factory is exactly the same ) let’s say the new iPhone 11 can vary in prices dramatically so if you get it 10,000 cheaper then you got yourself a bargain!

Now if you just want a cheap phone that you can still call, text or check out memes then you can spend a lot less and save a lot more than 10k. Apples for apples pardon the pun!

So what is the value of a haircut or color? 

Depending on what you are after and who you ask, if you are shaving your head it’s based on experience of the service I guess but if you are after a certain look and want your hair to move and look a certain way without risk, get constant compliments and feel the best you possibly can then it’s everything!

The old saying of “its only 2 weeks between a good haircut and a bad one” is so far from reality that anyone who has had a bad haircut would agree! The difference to your personality that your hair can make is by far the quickest boost out of anything you could possibly do. Being able to get out of bed, do very little and know how to handle it so there is virtually no bad hair days gives you the confidence with your hair and look that you need to be a boss! 

Now whilst Rod May be the most expensive hairdresser in the country and has years of experience we also have a full team trained alongside him that are incredibly talented. If you have never loved your hair or get compliments rarely maybe it’s time to experience it!

Now whilst you may not have a private plane or a budget that has you in the market for one we now have EMI facility so it doesn’t need to break the bank in one go! Haircuts with Rod start at 7000 + as well as our highly trained stylists. Call the salon directly on 01141010011

So you are also the type of person that thinks washing your hair is ” doing your hair” and wonder how on earth these people walk around with nice hair and you have a birds nest on your head! Well we are here to help you, its a matter of a few small tricks or habbits ( which is a better way of thinking)  that you can adapt to make your hair behave the way it should so you can step out of your house and manage to look amazing without creating anxiety or stress!

Where to get the best haircut in Delhi

So since we posted about which salon is the best and how to search a few of you thought we should clarify so here we go and hope it clarifies things for you.


Google is one way to find the things you want, sadly or in reality we all know that just because it is the first to come up doesn’t mean it’s the best. In fact it usually takes a bit of word play to find what you are after if you are a master of google! The best way to find your ideal salon maybe asking friends where they go ( obviously ask friends that have similar taste as you and similar quality expectations ) there are groups on Facebook and what’s app, try asking there.

Now while most are happy to give anything a try, as the saying goes “its only 2 weeks between a good and bad haircut” if you think this is true, haven’t had a bad haircut.

Now while we could write about our awesome technical abilities or our unique cutting method, it kind of means squat if we don’t get each other!

Go to the salon you have shortlisted, talk to them and see if you “click” once you have done that with all the salons it’s then you decide who to trust with your hair!

No one charges to talk to you, so relax!

The best Hair salon in Delhi

Well you can google it and most likely you will get the names of places that have paid to appear, not always but typically. So if it’s only another way to advertise and that’s not sad that’s just the way the internet works.

Since the begging of life we have shared things amoungst people that could be friends and at times strangers but when someone has direct experience it’s more trustworthy than a paid one liner!

No we don’t pay to appear anywhere, it’s not who we are or what we do, we create fans or happy campers that are our advertising. The better their hair looks and the better they can manage it the better our advertising works.

So before you start searching for the best, look around you and see what’s right there! It’s not always that far away

How to get Influencer hair

It only seems like a moment ago the term “Influencer”  was understood with a fair amount of contempt and yet from a certain group of people with admiration. Whilst the word rolls off the tongue and to some it is almost has a distaste to it and others admiration.  We all have to agree that there are certain people that have influence, like it or not and in fact we all have a certain amount of influence with others.

In the true sense i guess we are all influencing each other and thats why its super important to have the right circle around you, you end up morphing into each others personalities if you are not careful which can be good or bad depending on who is in your circle!

Now to be honest there is a lot more that goes into the “designation” or profile of someone that is deemed an influencer than just posting selfies or outfit photos they all have several thing in common one of which is typically beautiful hair, maybe not in a traditional sense but it always seems effortless! Don’t believe us go check out some of the ones you follow then come back!

Here are some of our favourite influencers and their hair!

Matilda Djerf

With hair that is not overdone, bangs that would turn any 70’s babe green with Envy her hair is something else! You might have guessed it, her hairstylist cuts her hair dry!

Possibly the most recognized heads of hair for hairstylists globally as this hair is as free as the Water Buffalo in Central Africa and has us all mezmorized! Taylor Lashae

Now if you dont know this girl we are almost positive your BF or husband is following her! undone hair level 11 and she wears it as we would expect!

Emily Ratajkowski

A lot of time we find people overdoing hair in order to capture the perfect image for a post, when in fact to get the perfect shot a lot of the time requires less effort and less fuss so it looks organic and natural.

If you need help getting a more natural look with your hair then drop in and talk to us, getting it right isn’t hard but a lot of the time just need the confidence to try something new!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

You may have a expensive building but it doesn’t mean you deliver luxury!

Recently someone called our Salon super Luxury and whilst to most that would seem like  somewhat of a compliment, we heard it and almost pushed him in from of the bus! We are not a luxury Salon, are we cheap no, is it a nice looking salon, yes so why wouldn’t we call ourselves Luxury?

d9c8e58ee650aeb6a024b623039544c6

Well its as basic as the picture above say’s, if you put an expensive light on the pole, does it work better? Do you see more? Is it a better experience driving down that road?

The answer is obviously no right but yet some people often think the fittings of the building dictate the level of service which is totally the wrong way to look at it.

We certainly didn’t go the cheap route for the salon but we have kept the design simple because we think its important to put our time and energy into the training and level of service we deliver.

Its not up to us to tell you that avoid a salon that is expensive looking and try out the cheap looking half baked ones, its not at all what we are saying but good to be aware of the traps and avoid falling into them.

Low fuss haircuts you need to try

its one thing to get a new cut and another thing if you can manage it yourself, no one wants to have to visit the salon to get a blow out every few days, apart from the fact no one has the time, its expensive! We believe that the true test of the cut is when you can manage it yourself at home, we take the time to teach you and show you the tricks we use so you don’t need to come every few days and get a blow out, you can we would love that but we have better things to do as we are sure you do too!

Here are some fun easy fuss free haircuts you must try!

Now no matter how hard you try to sell the long hair thing, short hair on woman is HOT, a bowl is not only cool can be one of the easiest cuts to maintain on a daily basis if done right!
