Is coloring cool for Men: Myths & Facts around Mens’ Hair

Crazy Saturday morning with Wella Bloggers Meet, at Select City Walk, Delhi!
And, being the lead StYLIST at StyleSaute has advantages of its own!As you’re already aware of the practical problems that we solve for Indian men here, you’d be excited to see what we reveal in this new blog today.hairstyles-for-indian-boys-21

We sure wouldn’t endorse a product that we don’t genuinely love, but we are so impressed by what Wella offers that we definitely want to put the experience online as soon as possible.

What caught our attention was one of the Key note speakers Maria, who is an R&D expert at Hair color and science technology at WellaProfessionals. She had flown in from Germany, especially for the Bloggers Meet today. Now as much we love talking about men’s style, we are also cautiously aware of what an odd hair color could do to a man’s sane mane. All that Ammonia could do some serious damage to anyone’s hair!

As you’ve already read our numerous takes on, How we think Indian Men should style their hair daily, in a party, or when they’ve got a wedding to attend, however today a lot of our hair myths were busted, for good. 🙂

Stressing on the importance of a good hair color, Wella busted a few myths like

1. Ammonia isn’t really that bad!

It’s actually MEA that’s worse than Ammonia, as it not only is the main culprit behind Hair Damage but is also the main factor for that awful color stink!

2. Hair Color accelerates Greying!

The truth behind Wella is, that it has nothing to do with premature Greying OR hair fall! Hair fall happens due to inappropriate nutrition, is genetic or is a result of microbial attack on the scalp.

3. Hair color damages hair

The truth is that, every color, every treatment, every heat application, and infact every chemical that you apply on your scalp ends up damaging your hair. infact, the increasing chlorine and salt content In water also ends up damaging your hair! so why just blame the Hair Color, when you practically damage your hair every time you shampoo! :-0

Well, the only thing that Wella does is to beautifully color your hair, with minimum damage and hence providing a richer texture than the other brands. wella with its specially formulated color content is best suited for the Indian hair quality that is not as lustrous as the typical RedHeads or blondes.

Unveiling the beautiful hair colors, and the broad  range of hair shades, typically suited for the Indian hair that is rich black, deep  brown and more, we realized that Wella is a perfect fit for our hair type.

So don’t forget reading about our upcoming blog posts on the best mens’ hairstyles to sport, the best mens’ haircuts of 2019 and the best hair color suggestions for Indian Men, courtesy StyleSaute. Read my next post to follow more scoop!

Why Dating isn’t that simple!

We at StyleSaute are considered experts at doling out style advice, like, What to Wear on your Coffee-Date VS What to Wear on a Dinner-Date, but we rarely get asked on how to seal the deal!

Last week, we were in rapt discussion with one of our customers on how he always got complimented on his dressing sense but that wasn’t leading to his favorite chick being interested in him.

So, naturally we asked a couple of well-dressed fashionable mortals on how do they do it. 🙂 And, below are the 3 tips to well mannered Dating:

  1. Arrive before time, and arrive prepared: Flowers are old fashioned but it almost always stokes hearts! Show up with a bunch of orange or pink roses and be sure of the Romantic date to follow.
  2. Talk about your hobbies: Indian Men are awfully proud of their success but shy away from opening up about their true personality. Show her what drives you, and what keeps you interested! Seeing someone talk about their passion and hobbies is a great way to knowing someone from the inside.
  3. Practice your signature move: We’ve all been there, having that aww-k-ward moment when you want to hug her but she moves forward to shake hands! Or, worse you’re a  feet away thinking you don’t want to be a creep whereas she wanted to lean in on a kiss! So, practicing your own closing line at the time of the Good-Bye, with your final-move is helpful!

Hope these tips are helpful when you go meet your Swipe-Right! 🙂

In the end, a well dressed man rarely stays un-noticed! 😀 Feel free to reach out if you would want us to dress you for that special occasion, however these styling options will work almost everytime you show up:

  1. A Neat Shave: Make sure you’re freshly trimmed or shaven when you meet her.Indian men style tips fashion latest
  2. A Well Ironed Coat, jacket or an Overcoat: Make sure lapels of your coat are well ironed and come with no stains!Smart_Casual_coat for men indian fashion.jpg
  3.  Clean hands: Yes, this! Never knew this could make so much of a difference, right? Well, when you;d hold that cup of coffee or the stem of the wine glass that you so hold, her gaze is going to rest at your fingernails and overall cleanliness of your hands!

Sweaty Indian Monsoon Dressing

Being a dapper could mean wearing too good clothes for too dirty a season- in that case, Monsoons! 😉 we know how it feels when we step out in our creased and ankle folded white pants with a fresh color on our linen shirt, and ahoy! comes the splash of muddy water as soon as we step out of the car! :-0 There goes our special edition shoes and with those, our moods! 😛

Does it sound familiar to you?

If it does, then read right ahead to see how you can elevate your style this monsoons by just mixing up pieces from your wardrobe!

  1. Check out for a rubberized sole. Or, a pair of washable canvas with a non slippery sole.

Now, we are not saying that you must own a pair of crocs or cloggy styled ugly looking shoes that protect you from mud, water and rain!

We’d love for you to make a stylish choice like this one below.

2. Get a bright color on yourself!

See if you have a fresh color of a shirt in your wardrobe. Imagine peppy greens, lemony yellows, blazing blues and subtle pinks.

These colors team well with any neutral shaded bottom; but if you feel a little brighter than usual, then think of 2 adventurous colors and team them up!

Pro Style Tip: keep the Accessories minimal.

Again, much love to you all!

Stylish Winters: Formal Black Outfit for Men

February begins with a warm approach to harsh winters. The weather slowly moves to a cozier onset with temperatures fit for a stylish wardrobe change! This February, we want to tell you how to leave the cozy, chunky knits for cold windy weather behind and welcome warm stylish Blazers! 🙂

When we realized that the month of love was truly also the month of weddings, and how a few members wrote to us for help, we put our thinking caps on to figure out the just right mix of spice and style great for your needs and ofcourse, the wallet.

The Curious Case of “I have everything BLACK”

Do you own a pair of black trousers? And, a black Blazer or a coat?  If yes, then we need you to know that you’re already half way through! :- ) To make it better, we recommend-

  1. Checking the blazer and getting it fitted on shoulders, chest and other areas! Take it to a good tailor and get it custom-fitted.
  2. Check the trousers. Can you make it slimmer at the ends? Is it too tight, too loose or has iron-stains? TIP- If yes, then don’t bother to get it fitted. You need a new one! Choose the darkest black which looks richer than its predecessor.
  3. Keep the Blazer and Pants together and exact-match their colors. Thumbs-up, if they do. If they don’t, you need to replace either of them! (Write to us if you need help in choosing the right Black Blazer)
  4. Find a crisp white shirt. Absolutely plain. Preferably, new.
  5. Wear them together. Choose a striking color for a Pocket-square. Groom your hair and smile. Voila!
Formal Wedding outfit- All Black, black blazer, dark coat and white shirt with black trousers.

All Pepper, with a Dash of Salt.

Hope you like it!

Winter Weaves: Latest Mens’ Fashion

We’ve often wondered what would happen to the world without its wandering, wistful weaves? 🙂

Can you imagine a world of mens’ fashion with just prints everywhere? Say, a printed white shirt for office or a printed black formal shirt for a dinner party, or even more ghastly-a printed traditional Kurta/Sherwani un-fit for mens’ wedding? Sometimes, we can’t help but think how boring would the world be if there was ‘All print and No weave!’ :-/

Winters, especially in India (well, mostly north-India) are a fabulous time to experiment with beautiful, vibrant colors and like most stylish men in the Wild Wild West, Indian Men should also know a thing or two about the most fashionable weaves to flaunt in otherwise gloomy winters.

Style in case, this beautiful Turquoise Waffle-Weave Sweater which is a great fit for almost all sizes, thanks to the relaxed weave quality which does not look too odd over a bit of a winter-tummy! 😀 <Yay!>

Second in line to love is this fabulous Herringbone Three Piece Suit for Men, which is a classic choice for some heavy duty professional wear as well as some high-profile stylish dressing for a fashionably updated Indian man. 🙂

Last in the series of our favorite-weaves-for-Indian-men is this fantastic Open weave sweater for all seasons. The rich blue color on this stylish winter wear is ideal for all levels of cold and blends well with stylish outerwear like a casual Jacket or a simple black mens’ overcoat.

We love this because this simple piece can transform into a ultra-cool yet casual outfit for those who want to play it sporty, whereas it easily merges with understated style of wearing it with a beige coat or a grey blazer in Winters!
