Hair Love Affair: Bumble and Bumble
We've been on a life-long quest for hair products that work. When we first moved to New York, a sophisticated co-worker recommended Bumble and Bumble's downtown salon. In NYC, where celebrity and trendy salons are competing for your hair, we were happy, as a then-twenty-something, to find a place that made us feel special and where we were getting great value for money (We were were on a budget!). The intense training that the stylists and colorists go through, combined with the stellar hair products mean you not only walk out of the salon with a great hairstyle, but you can maintain it at home. And, the customer service is excellent. While you wait for your haircut, browse the salon's book and magazine gallery, and sip on a lemon water or espresso. In the downtown salon, cast your eye over the sweeping skyline of Chelsea from the massive windows. In the uptown salon, enjoy the life-changing, electronic massage chair as you get your hair washed. Years later, we still love going to Bumble and Bumble.
Here are our favorite products: The Bb Grooming Creme calms and conditions our hair (wet, damp or dry). We use it when we are short on time (every morning!). Bb Straight is great on slightly damp hair when we want some extra help getting a sleek blow-out. The Bb Hairdresser's Invisible Oil is the finishing touch to smooth out frizz and control our hair (Tip: Don't put it near your scalp, otherwise you will get an oily look). The bottle lasts forever. You only need a small drop each time. For the days when you want a natural wave, the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray is stellar and feels light on your strands.
There are tons of Bumble and Bumble products to try. The best part is you don't have to be in New York to get them. Find them online at Bumble and Bumble, and say goodbye to your bad hair days.
