New Straight Conditioner

A light yet thorough conditioner helps manage unruly types, calm curls and quiet frizz for smoother, silkier texture. Adds shine and encourages body and movement. The new Straight line is great for hair that is curly, thick, coarse, frizzy, unmanageable, unruly (or any combination thereof). After cleansing with Straight Shampoo, smooth evenly through hair and let sit a minute or two. Rinse. Follow with Straight Blow Dry for smooth heat-styling.

New Straight Shampoo

This sulfate-free cleanser starts hair smooth, reduces frizz and makes hair more manageable straight out of the shower. It helps with flyaway reduction as well. Our curly-haired clients have been using this line religiously and have seen a huge difference in their hair.

Red Carpet: Emmy's

Celebrities were out in full force on the Emmy's red carpet. Here are a few of our favorite 'do's and some simple how-to's to go along with them.

We always love Gwyneth Paltrow's sleek strands.
1} Apply a small amount of Grooming Creme and massage it into damp hair. Blow dry.
2} After the hair is completely dry, part the hair down the middle and divide strands into four sections (sides, crown and nape).
3} Straighten the hair with a flat iron, beginning at the nape and working up toward the crown and sides.
4} To finish and create movement, run some Brilliantine through the hair, scrunching it in to create a slightly lived-in texture.
Nina Dobrev caught our eyes with her loose, romantic waves (a big trend for fall).
1} Spray Prep and then Thickening spray all over hair. Blow dry hair then set with velcro rollers.

2} Take a 1 ¼ inch curling iron and curl hair away from the face.
3} Let hair cool for about 20 minutes and then brush hair off to one side with a boar bristle brush.
4} Spritz the hair with Spray de Mode and then Shine Spray for an all over radiant glow.
Emily Blunt looked soft and feminine with her simple updo.
1} Spray Prep then Thickening Hairspray all over hair. Blow dry hair in different directions for a nice lift at the root.
2} Using a 2inch barrel curling iron, create spiral curls (away from your face) all over and work through fingers.
4} At the base of the neck, create a ponytail. Tease the ponytail and split it in two then twist and wrap the hair like a ballerina bun at the nape of the neck with a nice messy texture.
5} Finish with Spray de Mode hairspray.
Aubrey Plaza's hair was all about old Hollywood glamour.
1} Apply Styling Creme from roots to ends on damp hair. Blow dry loosely with your fingers to create texture and movement.
2} Blow dry the top and front sections using a large round brush to create a sleeker finish around.
3} Starting at the nape of the neck, curl the hair tightly on a 1-inch iron from root to tip. Curl the hair in a corkscrew fashion rather than rolling it under. Leave the ends of the hair out to keep them straight for a modern look.
4} Once all the hair is curled and cooled, run your fingers through to break it up.
5} Style the front over one eye and finish with Spray de Mode hairspray.

Color Class

Wednesday night we had a color class with our Dikson color educator, we learned some new techniques and went over great colors for fall. Rachel was our model and her hair turned out so beautiful (the pictures definitely don't do the color justice!), a nice rich brown with some hints of red and copper tones, perfect fall colors.

fashion week how-to: natural waves

It's Fashion Week in New York and we are loving the upcoming trends we have been seeing. Natural wavy texture is still going strong as the top hair trend on the catwalks. We loved the romantic, whirly-waves Band of Outsiders sent down the runway. Here's how you can create this look at home:
1} Divide damp hair into two sections with a straight middle part.
2} Working with one section at a time, twist each section of hair away from the face, while applying Bb. Texture. Continue twisting hair and working in the Texture until the hair is nearly saturated.
3} Hold the twisted section with your fingertips and blow dry the hair until it is completely dry. 4} Pin the twist to the side of the head, creating a large spiral. Leave for several minutes to set. Repeat on the other side of the head.
5} Once the spirals have set, remove pins, allowing the twists fall onto each shoulder. Rake hair with your fingers to create waves. For added texture, scrunch Bb. Brilliantine into waves. Finish with Spray de Mode hairspray. Pin It

Bb. Story

Salon K is one of the best salons in town.

How can you tell? It's a Bumble and bumble salon.

A limited group of establishments around the world sell Bb. products and share a vision for a stronger hairdressing culture. Each is a best in their region and employs stylists who are impeccably trained, unusually talented and have an unyielding passion and love for their craft. In addition to selling Bb. products, they develop their skills at Bumble and bumble University (Bb.U) in New York City - an institute for higher learning or graduate school for hairdressers.

Bb.U Design School (which we are going to in October!) offers advanced training in cutting and styling and how one depends on the other. We teach stylists to work closely with colorists to collaborate on texture and effect.

So if you thought you always got a fabulous haircut because your stylist is really talented, you're right. And if you think our products are great, you're right again. We teach your stylists to teach you how to look great. We also give them the technical and inspirational training to be the best hairdresser you'll ever have.

But if you thought Bb. was just stuff in a bottle, you'd be wrong. We're a company dedicated to the craft, culture and commerce of hairdressing.

hair how-to: rockin' waves

Demi Lovato's rockin' waves were one of the most talked about 'do's from the MTV VMA's. We have had a lot of requests to put together a hair how-to for this look, so without further ado....
1} Spray damp hair with Bb. Prep and Thickening Hairspray.
2} Blow-dry the hair using a medium-sized round brush.
3} Spray hair with Bb. Does it All (a heat protectant).
4} Using a 1½-inch barrel curling iron, take 2-inch sections and wind the hair around your iron (away from your face).
5} Once you pull each section off the curling iron sray hair again with Spray de Mode hairspray.
6} Continue around the whole head until all the hair has been curled. Gently run your fingers through the hair and finish with a final mist of Spray de Mode. Pin It

Kate Spade Fall 2011 Ad Campaign

Kate Spade just released their Fall 2011 campaign and we instantly fell in love with Bryce Dallas Howard. The results are adorable, Bryce looks charming and the ad looks cheery. We are obsessed with her chic, retro beehive which was created by none other than Bumble and bumble's editorial stylist Jimmy Paul. Bryce's ensembles makes us almost wish it were fall already. (Almost.)
