SKILLS Talk – Episode 12 “GET THE BEST HAIRSTYLE BY YOURSELF”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about some tips and advice on how to get the best hairstyle by yourself.

 

Tip #1. NEVER neglect your hair wash – The hair wash is the MAIN KEY in achieving the best hairstyle. Your hair like your skin is made with a special type of protein called “Keratin” that is found in your hair fiber, when the hair fiber gets dry your hair will always go to the direction of your hair growth and you will only able to control it if the hair is wet. That’s why whenever you wash your hair with the proper shampoo and conditioner, the ingredients inside will make your hair more manageable and flexible when you begin your hairstyle.

Hairwash is the most important and the first initial step in achieving an easy hairstyle.

 

Tip #2. PROPER usage of the Hair Dryer – The main purpose of the Hair Dryer is to dry the hair out and at the same ironing the hair fiber while maintaining the proper direction for the hairstyle that you are trying to achieve or your hair can stay still. The Hair Dryer has a specific duration of use, so if you use it for too long it will cause burn or damage, and if you go for a short time you will achieve nothing or your hairstyle will only last you for a few hours, and that depends on the quality of the hairdryer, temperature and your hair thickness and texture. How do you find all that answer? Just ask your barber about all these specific details.

The Hair Dryer has a specific duration of use, so if you use it for too long it will cause burn or damage.

 

Tip #3. The TECHNIQUE of using the Brush – There are many different types of brush with different types of use. The most common brush which is the Rolling brush, and as small as its size that will produce a sleek hair finish, and if the size is bigger that means you are increasing the puff. The puff is produced by the proper technique of the hairbrush along with the hairdryer. So if the direction that you like is against your hair mood then you have to make sure that you need to use the small rolling brush on the roots only with the short timing while your hairdryer is set in the highest temperature, that is the only way that you can control your hair against the natural direction. With the proper technique of the Brush and proper usage of the Hairdryer, you can achieve any hairstyle and you can direct your hair in any direction.

With the proper technique of the Brush and proper usage of the Hairdryer, you can achieve any hairstyle.

Tip #4. CHOOSE the Proper Hair Product for your Finishing – Make sure you use the proper hair product for yourself, if you are looking for a puffy hairstyle avoid using any hair product that will give you sleek finishing look like Pomade or Gel because it changes your hair fiber and it decreases the volume and there where you lose your puff. And if you are looking for a sleek hairstyle you need to make sure to avoid any Matte or Fiber because this will increase the puff in your hair and it is made only to increase the volume in your hair.

LEFT (Matte Finishing), RIGHT (Sleek Finishing)

If you want your hairstyle to last you long if you are going to any occasion, then make sure to use the Proper Hair Spray which is Matte or Shiny depending on your preference, because this will hold your hair longer than usual, and your hair will not be affected by sweat and will not allow your hair fiber to fight back to the way your original hair looks like because usually, the hairstyle will only survive 3 to 4 hours before it starts to fight back and make your hair mess.

 

Using Hairspray during the Style Finishing

Hairspray will add extra 4-8 hours of hold on your hairstyle.

Lastly, the most important thing is when you enjoy your hairstyle for the whole day you always need to wash it during the night or before your sleep because the hair product can leave a thick residue on your scalp if it’s not properly washed off, this can clog the pores of your scalp and cause hair follicle reduction. That it means your hair start to grow thinner, weaker, more brittle hairs – which can give an appearance of hair loss.

Washing your hair at the end of the day is the most important tip that you should never forget to avoid hair damage.

In this episode, our Senior Barber  @barber.mo along with our Nail Technician Ms. Dianne talks about Nail Care.

 

Nail Care is not just for Female

Nail care is for everyone who wants to look presentable and hygienic.

Nail Care is for everyone, it doesn’t matter whether you are male or female as long as you want to look more presentable and hygienic, then yes you should always invest in having a proper regiment for your nails as you would have on your hair.

 

The difference between doing your nails at home and by a professional is that you only do 50% of the actual process and there is a lot of things that you neglect, most especially the filing and cutting the cuticle.

 

Nail Filing at SKILLS Dubai Barbershop

The difference between doing your nails at home and by a professional is that you only do 50% of the actual process.

 

The frequency of cutting your nail is usually every 2 weeks, on that time you will see that your nail is already looking unmanageable, if you are the type of person who wants to look sharp and clean at most of the time then every week is possible, as long as you don’t go less this is to avoid going too short and cutting your nail beds.

 

It is important that you cut your nail as often as possible because if not the germs buildup underneath your nails will cause you the have infections or the transfer of dirt from your nails to your mouth or hands.

SKILLS Talk – Episode 6 “THESE BAD HABITS ARE DAMAGING YOUR HAIR”

 

In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about some of the most common bad habits that people do that are damaging their hair.

 

1. Using Commercial Shampoo over Chemical-free Shampoo

You should always avoid using a shampoo that has both Sulfates and Parabens because they strip your hair of its natural oils, making it dry and brittle. Instead, use natural shampoos that are made with natural plant oils and herb extracts, most commonly that has coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, and Also don’t forget to use Conditioner because the shampoo alone is not enough.

 

Dry Hair when using commercial shampoo

Your hair gets dry when you use shampoos that have harmful chemical ingredients such as Parabens and Sulfates

2. Doing your Blowdrying near to the scalp

Holding the dryer too close for too long can literally fry the hair and burn the scalp, potentially causing permanent damage to the hair follicles resulting in hair loss and bald patches.

Blowdrying your hair too close and Brushing your hair too tight.

Never blowdry too near your scalp and brush your hair too rough with the brush.

3. Sleeping with Hair Product on your Hair

Products can leave a thick residue on your scalp if it’s not properly washed off, this can clog the pores of your scalp and cause hair follicle reduction. That it means your hair start to grow thinner, weaker, more brittle hairs – which can give an appearance of hair loss.

 

Hair Products Styling Hair

Hair Products can clog your pores if not washed properly before you sleep.

4. Drying your hair forcefully with the towel

Using a towel is not generally bad but just rubbing your wet hair forcefully with a towel can lead to excessive hair breakage and hair fall. Its thick absorbent fibers when rubbed with the hair actually do more harm than good.

The hair can also become extremely frizzy as the towel ruffles up the cuticles of the hair. Moreover, the weight of the towel itself pulls down the hair, causing vulnerable strands to break.

 

Drying your Hair Roughly with the Towel

Another Bad Habit is Drying your hair Roughly with the Towel.

5. Neglecting to moisturize your hair after swimming in the pool or beach.

Both the chlorine and saltwater dry out the hair and strip away its natural oil, making the hair drier and thin. That’s why it is very important to rinse your hair after your swim to wash out all the chlorine and bacteria that was soaked up by your strands to avoid further damage.

 

Washing Hair Kevin Gates in Dubai at SKILLS Barbershop

Always rinse your hair after you go swimming outdoors and apply moisturizer on your hair to avoid any further damage.

 

 

That’s it for this episode, make sure you avoid all these habits if you want your hair to last with you longer. See you on the next episode.

SKILLS Profile – Episode 5 “The Foundation”

 

In this episode, our CEO @barber.mo talks about how the story of how he looked for the foundation of his dream place along with all the knowledge and ideas that he brought with him.

At first, it was very hard because the concept that he envisioned was very premium so he wanted to have the place that would complement the Value and Quality that he wanted to deliver.

He worked tirelessly in his day job and after his shift, he would need to go drive through all the luxury areas in Dubai to find that place, because he just doesn’t want to settle for just to open his shop, if he wanted to open he wanted it to be perfect from the start.

 

The foundation SKILLS Profile Barber Mo

Barber Mo expressed that in order for you to start your journey you need to have a proper “Foundation”

Everything came in the right time when he just spoke to one of his clients that he had a place that is available, at first, he was quite pessimistic about it because he didn’t want to get his hopes up.

Then when he entered the building, he was surprised that it was in the 15th floor, he opened the office and it was still under construction, there was no electricity so the only lights that they have were the open view window facing the lights of Downtown and he saw Burj Khalifa right in front him, then he realized that this can be the best place to put his foundation because he always wanted to be different and he wanted it to be exclusive… Long story short that is how everything started.

SKILLS Profile – Episode 4 “The Rejection”

 

In this episode, our CEO @barber.mo talks about how countless rejection and disappointment made him stronger and that no matter how hard life gives you, you just need to keep moving forward.

 

No matter how passionate you are, how hardworking or how much good intention you have you will still be faced with people who will hinder your growth and keep you from moving forward.

 

This was never new for him as he had already faced countless trials and disappointments when he was growing up in his hometown.

 

Barber Mo SKILLS Dubai Barbershop Smiling

Barber Mo expressed that ‘Rejection’ is not always bad but it is just a sign that, that way is not for you.

Sometimes you just need to take a step back out of that situation no matter how blind you go for as long as you are following what you believe is best then you are never lost, and maybe someday you will find the person who will support you and believe you and your vision.

 

So, take rejection as a positive thing and as a step moving forward, it is not the end… it is only just the beginning.
