Christmas morning quick fix!

Hope you are all enjoying the holiday's with your family and friend's.  We have really been having fun sharing our hairstyling techniques with all of you and hope you have enjoyed them as well.

Pull yourself together fast for Christmas morning with these quick easy style's.  We all know there are way to many ugly morning photo's from Christmas past!

1. Side braid. This chic yet fuss-free style works on straight, curly, and second day hair.  Simply smooth the hair to one side and begin braiding,  then secure with a satin bow or ouch less hair band. Loosen it by holding on to secured end of the braid and running hand's up the braid.  This will give it a little undone appearance.

2. Messy top knot.  Effortless chic!  No need to even comb second second day hair.  Use your finger's to rake it back into a high ponytail secure with a band, then back comb ponytail .   Next take sections of hair and wrapping around hairband and pinning.  You can also pull some piece's down around front hairline to soften up the look.   Perfection!

3. High Pony.  Comb hair and apply Bb's Grooming Cream sparingly with hands. Section hair off from behind ears across the head, then separate hair on crown and backcomb!!  Use brush to lightly go over the back combed section and smooth surface.  Pull back into high ponytail and secure with band.  Loosen piece's around face for some face framing. Voila fabulous again!

Happy Holiday's!!

Something for the Men! Everything old is new again.

Hopefully all our great male client's have not given up on us!  We are dedicating one of our last day's to you.  Hopefully this will inspire some new styling ideas or possibly a new cut for this coming  Year!

Slicked back undercut

Who is it for

This hairstyle is great for someone a little more fashion forward. Good for: straight hair & hair that can be straightened

How to style it

Simply add Bb's Sculpting gel or for a firmer hold Bb's Gellac on wet straight hair and comb into place . Both will give you a shiny finish.  

For curly hair, add Bb's Straight Blow Dry on wet hair.  Then blow dry and follow with flat iron.  Finish it off with Sumo wax to hold in place.

Slicked hair with a side part

Who it is for

This is a hairstyle ideal for men with relatively straight hair as the hair is more likely to sit flat on the head complimenting the hairstyle’s "slick’"shape.

Those with curly hair can straighten or give it a straight blow-dry before commencing styling.


How to style it

Keep the parting straight.

For a wet slicked look: apply Bb's Gellac before parting the hair and then work the product with a comb all through the hair strands.

For a natural matte finish look: Part the hair first, spray some hairspray like Bb's Spray De mode on a brush and gently comb through the top layers of the hair. This will resist flyaway strands.

If you’re after the classic finish like the look popular in both the 1930's and again courtesy of Mad Men, then your product of choice will be Sumowax.

Shoulder length haircut

Who is it for

Any man with long straight hair or managable waves.

How to style it

When styling this look, create texture with a Bb's Surf Spray and Bb's Grooming Cream to eliminate frizz.

The styling for this works best if the hair is one-day old, as scalp’s natural oils assist in the creating texture. Or you can create the look by applying Bb's Texture on wet hair then finger blow dry to get that lived in look finish with Bb's grooming cream to tame any wild hairs.

Only Two More Days Left!

What a lovely day it is today! Cool weather, light breeze, and warm sun.  Can it get any better?

The holidays are upon us, and we've only got two days left of our Great Hair for the Holidays Countdown.  I hope you've gotten some great tips and ideas from the posts the last few days.  Today we picked a style that is perfect for a variety of hair lengths and cuts.  It can be done curly, wavy, or straight which leaves you with options.
As far as products and styling tips, we would recommend Bumble and Bumble's Hair Powder for your back combing.  Remember, this will add extra grip so your back combing will hold and last longer. If you are going to go the curly or wavy route, Bumble and Bumble's Does It All Hairspray should be used while curling.  This will help with holding your curl without giving you a crunchy, sticky feeling or weighing your hair down. Lastly, use Bumble and Bumble's Grooming Creme to tame fly aways and add shine to your classy, elegant look.

Good luck, ladies, and enjoy the season!

Less than a Week Left of Great Hair for the Holidays!

My goodness, the time has been flying by.  Christmas is right around the corner.  Hopefully you all have been enjoying the Twelve Days of Great Holiday Hair with us and getting some great ideas and tips for your holiday look.  Today we decided to go for something smooth, sleek, sexy, and also very classy. 

To achieve this look start with freshly washed hair. Mix together Bb's Styling Creme and a few drop's of Bb's Defrizz . This will create a great mix of hold, volume, and shine for a great round brush blow out. If necessary, finish ends with flat iron and tame any fly aways with Bb's Sumo wax (also works great for getting your swoop to stay in place). Until tomorrow, a great hair day to you all!

Do you have annoying static all Winter?

How do you tame annoying static all winter?

Static happens when your hair picks up an electrical charge from the dry air, explains hair doctor Philip Kingsley. “It’s common in the chillier months because the air is less moist everywhere,” he adds. Fight it by switching to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner for your hair type, then use a tourmaline or ionic hair dryer — they don’t suck out moisture like regular dryers can . If your static persists, try out one of the solutions below, matched to your specific hair texture.

Fine/Straight Hair

Rub Bumble and Bumble defrizz  on just the tips of your hair to avoid greasy buildup. Carry a dryer sheet for touch-ups during the day.

Medium/Wavy Hair

Your hair is thick, so it can handle a rich leave in conditioner like Bb's  leave in conditioner  to lock in moisture tame frizz and beat static. Apply to damp hair before you blow dry.

Hope this has helped make winter a little more bearable!
