5 Bumble & Bumble Hair Products to Try This Year

 

Hey guys, Happy New Year to you all! What a wonderful year 2015 was, we are so excited for all of the plans we have here at Steven & Laurent for 2016 and can't wait to hare them with you all. I wanted to start off the year with a post sharing with you 5 Bumble & Bumble products you must try this year. Let's get started!

 

BB Full Potential

The Full Potential range is new to Bumble and Bumble, each of the products have been designed to help create fuller and stronger hair so if you have been quite mean to your hair lately with over styling and over processing then this is one for you to try. Let's get your hair back into tip top condition! 

 

Don't Blow It

Always love the idea of leaving your hair to just dry naturally but hate the outcome once you go through with it? My hair is rather frizzy so if I just leave it to dry it ends up looking little hagrid from Harry Potter but not anymore, I've been using Don't Blow It styling cream when I fancy just having a lazy hair day and it's transformed my hair routine. I can now actually stand my hair in it's natural state because this cream ensures my locks are frizz free and looks gorgeous, it requires little effort and is a must have for those days you want to avoid heat styling. 

 

Surf Infusion

This spray is actually another product I love to use with Don't Blow It, Surf Infusion is a salt-in-oil innovation, this mellow mix of tropical oils and texturising sea salts creates soft, sea-tossed waves with sheen. You can use this anytime, either before styling on damp hair or on dry hair to add some more texture it's very lightweight and creates the most beautiful beachy waves.

 

Hairdressers Invisible Oil

This is a product everyone needs, it's transformed my hair over the past year and I can't live without it. Invisible Oil helps flyaways disappear without leaving the hair greasy or heavy. It's an oil you can use anytime, to soften, smoothe and reduce frizz, tame flyaways, detangle and strengthen hair against breakage. Perfect!

 

Sunday Shampoo

I don't know about you but I'm pretty lazy when it comes to washing my hair, I wash it twice a week and I do use quite a lot of products so by using something like the Sunday Shampoo it's really going to ensure that hair is squeaky clean from all of those products you've been using. This weekly shampoo is like a little hair detox, it's ideal for product junkies and infrequent washers like me. 

 

Which will you be picking up next time your in the salon?

What's New // Olaplex

sl

 

I thought I'd give you all a little update on what's been going on in the salon lately, we have lots of news and opportunities at the moment and lots of exciting things happening.

 

Olaplex

Here at Steven & Laurent we are always looking for ways to help and improve the quality of your hair, we do this with fabulous cuts and colours and we have also just introduced a brand new and revolutionary, ingredient to our colours called OLAPLEX. This is an upgrade service for hair colouring, OLAPLEX™ is a single active ingredient, designed to reconnect the disulphide sulfur bonds broken by the process of permanent hair colouring and lightening. OLAPLEX™ is free of silicones, oils, aldehydes and parabens and it is rumoured that Kim Kardiashian wouldn't have been able to go the Platinum Blonde colour she went without it, it adds colour, strength and shine... who doesn't want that! 

 

I had this extra treatment last time I was in the salon and I'm delighted to say it's worked wonders on my hair. I have blonde hair as you all know and the texture of my locks have always been a little dry around the front and I've noticed that it's a lot smoother since having Olaplex, I can't wait to have it again next time I'm in the salon as I know after multiple treatments you really feel the benefit. 

 

Ask in salon for your colour upgrade and enter a whole new world of fabulousness!

Getting the chop this Summer!

 

 

With Summer on it's way I have been toying around with the idea of having my hair chopped off and brightened up a little. I did keep talking myself out of it until today, I thought let's go for it hair grows! This morning I went to my appointment at Steven & Laurent, you may remember a post on my hair a few months ago now which you can see here on my first transformation at Steven & Laurent. As you know these guys never fail I always have such fantastic results, I'm so happy with my new style it's so much lighter and I think it's going to be much easier to style this Summer. 

 

 

 

So here's my before and after, I love doing these because you really get to see the transformation although I wish I took photos of the back to show you before and after because that's even more of a transformation. As you can see before my hair was just looking a little lifeless and dull, I hadn't had it coloured since February and as I had Balyage before it was looking like my roots were even longer! The style before was just long with a few layers, nothing too special as I usually focus on my colour and just grow my hair all the time. Today I fancied a change I wanted a long bob also known as The Lob, my hairdresser Sarah cut it so it was longer around the front of my face to frame it nicely and slightly shorter at the back and I love it! I haven't had hair this short in a long time, I can't wait to start having a play around with it and styling it more often. I was finding with my hair before I'd get so lazy with it because it took so long to do so I'm hoping I'll have more time now and make a little more effort with the new style I have.

 

 

 

Moving on to the colour the blonde is now a lot fresher and brighter, even lighter in person I'd say. We went away from the Balyage this time and went blonde from root too tip, Sarah did foils down my parting and all around my hair line then painted some colour on free hand underneath for a more natural effect. Once the colour was washed off we added toner to make the colour look nice and creamy, It looks really fab I'm so happy with it! 

 

What do you think of my new shorter do'? Have you thought about having the chop for the Summer ask for your stylists advice next time your in the salon!
