This is an ombre I did on my client the other day! A dark Aveda chocolate brown blended into a Carmel then to a light honey blonde! Used Bumble and Bumble Newly released Hairdressers Oil shampoo and conditioner to hydrate and add shine following the lightening process.
Bumble and Bumble surf spray is the go to product for sexy beachy waves! But for girls like myself who are lacking a little moisture you might feel like you have difficulty using this product. By adding a few drops of a hair oil such as Bumble and Bumble’s Hairdresers Invisible Oil you quench your hairs thirst before adding the surf spray! Bumble and bumble also released a shampoo and conditioner to combine with the surf spray conveniently named Surf foam wash and Surf creme rinse! Great for girls lacking texture or needing a little more body but otherwise I would opt for something a little more hydrating such as Quenching or Creme de Coco! This is a fun product for summer great to enhance your waves, add texture, or give that messy lived in style.
The salon I work at just began carrying Bumble and Bumble and I have to say I am head over heels in love with this product! The mending line is made to repair damaged hair without causing your color to fade! The scent is amazing, like a light perfume. I have medium to thick wavy hair that can be a pain to blow dry but this really helps with the frizz even without an additional styling product! Bumble and Bumble says this product is “for the truly damaged” meant to repair, strengthen, shine, and protect. If you highlight regularly or have any other chemical service done such as perms or relaxers this is defiantly your go to! The line also includes a masque and a mending complex treatment which I am excited to try. However if you do not have chemically treated hair but your hair is dry the mending line has a sister product known as Quenching made for extremely dry hair in need of replenishing moisture. Defiantly give this product a try I’m obsessed!
This is a red ombre my co worker Sarah did yesterday! The client was previously a faded intense red, i wish I had a before and after! The color is so vibrant and even more beautiful in person! This is defiantly a way to keep the ombre trend fresh and fun!
The other day at work we had an in-house Aveda workshop known as “Balayage Basics”. Now for anyone not familiar with the term balayage the technique originated in France and literally means “to sweep” in French. Although balayage has been around for many years it became popular in the U.S. thanks to the beautiful Gisele Bundchen. Her hair appeared to be perfectly sunkissed and lighter through the face and ends, less linear and perfect then the effect we achieve with foils. Now you can not turn a Victoria Secret magazine page without seeing girls with beautiful ribbons of balayage highlights! The look is low maintenance and the grow out is beautiful. Balayage is also a great way to achieve the ombre effect with no harsh lines. Since the color is painted on the hair in a sweeping motion you do not get stark lines like you would with foils. Now foils would still be
my go to for the die hard blondes who want to be as light and as close to the root as possible but balayage is a fun alternative for the girl who wants that beachy blonde! Anyway the class was exciting and I am loving playing with application and placement it is always fun to break outside your comfort zone! I included a very natural balayage application to one of my color clients…very natural but beautiful!
