Hilarious things people ask for at the Hair Salon

There is no end to the things we get told by people when they come into the salon. From stories about lovers, hidden secrets to some amazingly bizarre myths about hair!

We try to keep a straight face but at times it’s just a little too much! Here are some things people say when they come in to get their hair done.

  • I don’t want a cut or a color but make it look different
  • I want it light, not too light, little dark but not black
  • My hair should look different but I don’t want anyone to notice it
  • I want it long but lots of layers but thick at the bottom
  • Put something in it so it grows faster
  • I want it blonde, straightened and not cut and I hope it won’t look dry or damaged
  • This blow dry needs to last a full week, I’m going out on the weekend.
  • Use my Pantene, I don’t like fancy shampoo.
  • Can you cut it today and I will come next week for the blow dry & im not paying extra
  • I don’t want the blow dry with the cut can my mum get it instead for free
  • I had it cut 6 months ago and honestly it didn’t last.
  • Why are you charging me for a cut when I only had a trim
  • I want to know what you would do, please write it down so I can go get it done close to my home, it’s easier for me.
  • I know you are open 10 hours a day but I’m only free late nights please open till 11pm
  • Can you send someone to get me some lunch before we start
  • I’m sending my maid can you teach her how to do my blowout
  • There is so many more that would make your ears bleed we are sure, so if you are wondering how we still smile and take time out to make you smile maybe this will help!?

    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” ┬áis 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!

     

     

    Dry cutting gives the right texture to your haircut, its made to measure

    Cutting hair dry is not a new thing, in fact its how it all started but what has changed is the science and understanding behind it. We have been dry cutting for over 20 years and we do it for a number of reasons and think its best to spell it out so its easy to understand.

     

    You don’t walk around with wet hair, you don’t try on a dress with it wet, its both done dry correct? Just like getting a dress made to measure your hair has to be cut and shipped in the state that it will be in daily and that is dry, it goes way beyond simply cutting hair dry and saying you can do dry cuts too, its about understanding the movement and texture of the hair together with the science of movement and being able to add/remove weight or length to give the desired result.

    Its a technique that in Asia has been used for many many years as typically straight hair reacts differently to curly hair and to create the desired texture it has to be done both wet and dry, a personalised technique that needs training and hair movement understanding . If you have ever wondered why some people can just wash and leave their hair and not touch it and it always looks good, maybe its the cut!

    If you want hair that is wash and wear ready then its about time that you experienced it from the one place that started “Dry Cutting” in India

    How often to get get your haircut to keep it healthy?

    You waited 6 months to get a trim because you are growing your hair, every time you get it cut they cut too much off so whats the point right?

    b01397febfe0940e2cc90945dd15a460

    Well if each time you go and get your hair cut, if too much is being cut off then it means your going to the wrong salon. You have to balance your hair goal to the hair condition and leaving it for 6 months means you will possibly have more split ends than what you will cut off. To maintain a shape or condition your hair needs trimming every 6-8 weeks maximum. You remove split ends, keeps the shape right and keeps you looking sorted. If you don’t get it cut then the split ends travel up the hair shaft and the condition goes for a toss.

    Every hair on your head grows at a different rate, so whilst some grow slower than others ( slightly ) the hair will not sit or move the same way month after month, it needs to be maintained, if you want to grow it longer then keep in mind your average hair grows 1-1.5 inches per month so always cut less than that, if you want to maintain the length then cut what has grown.

     

    Fairly simply? See you every 6-8 weeks

    Check out which of our clients just painted their Jet black

    Ever thought, one day when everything falls into place I’m going to buy a jet and paint it black? Well as you can see there are some, in fact I think I would too just to be the odd one out, I think it would look cool!

    But I guess since this is a hair site its only fitting we relate this to hair right, I guess so! Well if you have a plane you are more than welcome to paint it any color you like, if you have hair, then black is NOT your only option! If you are colouring your hair to cover grey’s then black is possibly the worst option, if you think you were black or have black hair the chances are slim as very very few people actually have black hair.

    One of the biggest problems when you are going grey is keeping up with the regrowth, the moment you leave the salon, your hair starts to grow and within days if you look closely you will see white dots coming through which will start driving you crazy. The darker the hair, the whiter the white the faster you see it!

    So how do you either stop it growing, slow it down or disguise it so your life isn’t spent in the Salon?

    Well never tell your hairstylist you want black thats a good start, but we need to understand that when you color your hair the contrast is what will show the regrowth the fastest, the darker your colouring, you will see the lighter hairs coming through. Now if you are dark and you color your hair light its exactly the same but in reverse.

    You can break up the color you are doing, add some highlights a few shades lighter, take your color 1-2 shades lighter than your natural color and this together will give you a longer gap between visits and free up some valuable time of yours!

    Your hair may be dark but unlikely it is black or ever was!

     

    Come see us and discuss how to get your life back and still look good!

    How to get shinny Hair

Now whilst obviously prevention is better than trying to fix something that is already ruined but we will share with you one of the best keep secrets to get shinny hair immediately!

    Now there are a zillion masks, treatments, hair spa’s, oils, serums etc etc on the market and some work to some extent and some are just nonsense that are cosmetic vs actually making any difference. To have shinny hair it is the light reflecting on the outer layer of the hair ( the cuticle ) now if the cuticle has been damaged, could be from blow drying, using hot styling tools or overdone colour or keratin etc then no amount of ” Spa” or treatment is going to fix it anytime between now and Xmas so how do you look good for the holidays?

    Here is how!

    We use a clear gloss that is low in ammonia and will act as a lacquer over your hair, won’t change your colour, won’t damage your hair but will get the light reflecting off it today! Now whilst this will make your hair feel better it is NOT a repair service it is simply to help it look better. Depending on the condition it can make a huge difference, it will wash out so it is safe to do and won’t have any long term negative effects!
