Just in Time For Summer: Bb’s NEW Don’t Blow It!

Bb STYLERS

Sometimes achieving that effortless, air-dried hair style can be easier said than done. As the trend for natural and low-maintenance hair styling continues to become more popular, finding the right method to style hair without all the work can be challenging. We all want to have great hair, but don’t want to put in the work for it, right? And why use heat and product just to make it look like you didn’t use heat and product? If the effortless ‘do is what you’re going for, it should go without saying that little to no effort is required. So what can you do to decrease the time spent getting the perfect style?

Bumble and bumble released Don’t Blow It in 2014- made specifically for fine hair in need of texture and body. This styling creme is super versatile- meant to be worked into towel-dried hair and styled whichever way you like. Scrunch your hair, twist in some curls, or work your fingers through for easy texture and lots of body.

Three years later, Bumble invents Don’t Blow It for thick hair, and the hair gods rejoice. Arriving at Citrine just in time for summer, Don’t Blow It will give your blow dryer a rest for the summer season. Made for medium to thick hair, Don’t Blow It conditions hair while reducing frizz. Giving you the perfect amount of control, Don’t Blow It refines and defines with little effort. Work a small amount from mid-shaft of the hair to the ends. Let air-dry, and go!

Seriously, though, could getting the perfect style be any easier?

Give your blow dryer a break this summer! Stop in to give Don’t Blow It a try. Both cremes offer UV protection- perfect for the days spent outside in the sun. These lightweight stylers are ideal for summer- great hair days with no heat or hassle.

 

Spring 24 hour Detox!

Spring is a time of renewal, rebirth, and rejuvenation. We feel the change of winter into spring more than any other season- this ‘awakening’ often reflects in our desire for both personal and physical change. While many occupy themselves doing annual spring cleaning, consider what you can do to ready yourself for the warmer days ahead.

Do you feel sluggish after the Spring time change?

Hopping into Spring can be a difficult transition when the days are longer and the nights are shorter.

Comfort Zone has the solution, and it only takes 24 hours!

Reactivating our metabolism at the beginning of spring is fundamental. Our body is still ‘asleep’ during the winter: we move/exercise less, the hours of daylight are fewer, and with the beginning of spring, we feel more tired.

Every season has its color. If you’re feeling down or stressed, choose green vegetables! It is a natural anti-stress color. Foods that contain chlorophyll fuel the energy needed during periods of intense work or study. Greens help us to sleep better, to stay in shape and reinforce the immune system.

Davines has teamed up with cardiologist Dr. Gualerzi to create a 24 hour detox to get you ready for :Springtime! It is outlined as follows:

24 HOUR DETOX: MEET THE CHALLENGE!

When you wake up: 15 minutes before breakfast, drink two glasses of water with 1 teaspoon of rice, apple cider vinegar, or lemon for each glass.

Breakfast: extracted juice of a pear, with a handful of spinach and a piece of celery, rice or corn cakes with sugar-free jam.

Snack: 6 almonds or 5 walnuts.

Lunch: a gluten-free grain such as quinoa or amaranth, completed with steamed seasonal veggies, seasoned with ginger and Tahini.

Snack: 6 almonds or 5 walnuts.

Dinner: Miso soup with celery and seasonal veggies, legumes such as green lentils or fresh peas, with rice cakes and a portion of seasonal fruit.

Before sleeping: springtime “mocktail” with lime and mint, or an infusion with lemon balm and licorice.

Try this 24 hour detox and FEEL the difference!

An Exciting Addition to the Bb Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Family!

bbWe’ve fallen in love with Bumble and bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil line here at the salon. Not only are we seeing great results from the shampoo and conditioner, but the balm-to-oil masque and invisible oil spray are getting some of our clients through these dry winter months. For others, frizz and dehydration are always a concern, no matter what time of year.

For those of us with dry to very dry hair types, continually stripping the hair of natural oils can result in a style that makes for more maintenance and trouble, not to mention the risk of damage and breakage. And it can be hard to find a shampoo that cleans the hair but is gentle enough to retain moisture. Regardless of the weather and outside influences, dull and frizzy hair is no fun anyway!

bbbbbbBumble and bumble is introducing a new addition to the Hairdresser’s family, and it’s sure to be a hit among the salon and our clients. The Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Cleansing Oil-Creme Duo is meant to be used in conjunction with the Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil shampoo and conditioner. Use it in place of your Hairdresser’s shampoo every other day, and follow with the Hairdresser’s conditioner like you normally would. It’s that easy.

One of our favorite things about this new Bumble product is (like always) the packaging! A low-foam cleanser and luxurious moisturizing creme housed in dual-chambers combine to gently eliminate dirt and build-up while preserving your hair’s natural oils.bumble

Like the rest of the Hairdresser’s products, the Cleansing Oil-Creme Duo contains six signature oils that deeply moisturize and condition all hair types. Over time, the added moisture will further silken and protect your tresses. It’s a simple addition to your regular washing routine, but with all the extra benefits you never knew you needed!
