Bumble & Bumble Blow Dry Range

 

Let's just say I'm not really one to blow dry my hair very well, I need all the help I can get and that's where these amazing creams from Bumble & Bumble come in. I have been trying all three over the past three months and I feel I can now tell you about them all and how they've worked for me and how they can work for you. 

 

BB Straight Blow Dry

I have been using this when I want sleek, straight locks as you can imagine from the name it does what it suggests and leaves you with beautifully straight hair. All of these Blow dry creams are heat activated so you need to blow dry your hair in order to get it working, I was a little worried about that because I tend to rough dry my hair a lot or use a paddle bush but using a paddle brush thankfully has worked fine it's very lightweight and I'd say perfect for those with super curly, thick, unmanageable locks. 

 

BB Repair Blow Dry

So we've all been there right? Over processed hair, I've got it! Luckily after having the chop a couple of months ago my hair feels restored and healthy again, to maintain that I like to use this when I have straightened my hair a little too much or it's feeling a little dry and worse for wear. My hair definitely feels smoother after using this, I can notice that it's sealed those split ends and keeps my style looking fresher for longer which is great. I'd recommend using this when you hair is feeling a little brittle from over processing or heat styling and to just pop on to mid lengths and ends for a real freshen up. 

 

BB All-Style Blow Dry

My favourite creme of them all is All-Style, it's definitely the one I reach for the most because it includes oil absorbing powders to extend the life of your hair. My hair only gets washed twice a week so it's prone to getting a little oily after day 2 so to make sure I get the most out of my washes and styling I opt for this one quite a lot. It definitely helps my hair look fresher for longer and gives a nice smooth finish which is what I'm after. You can use this from root to tip and a little goes a very long way, I always make sure I rub the product in then brush through to make sure it's been distributed evenly and it works great that way for me. 

 

Which do you think would work best for you, my personal favourite is All-Style.

3 Fun Ways to Change up your Hair

 
Here on Steven & Laurent we love experimenting with new looks, wether it's a splash of colour or a gorgeous up do today we are going to share with you a few of our favourite ways to change up your hair for SS15. 
 

 
Colour
Adding colour is always a fun way to change up your hair, pastels are a great and subtle way to switch up your look and we have a range of ways we can do this by adding semi permanent colours or even hair chalks and sprays for those who want something fun yet easy to wash out. We have some  great Bumble & Bumble hair sprays in the salon so next time your in and your feeling experimental then just ask and we can get colourful! 
 

 
Braids
Braids are a super quick and easy way to switch up your look either at home or in the salon, there are so many kinds of braids and styles you can do including half up half down, all up, a pony or even creating your very own hair headband! The opportunities are endless, whats your favourite braid to do? 
 

 
Cut 
Colour and braids not enough for you? How about The Cut, there are so many ways you can change your hair style with a good cut, be it just a trim up to bring back the life to your super dry locks or a fringe to change up the way your hair frames your face, my favourite is the Midi bob it's so chic and perfect for Summer! 
 
What will you be doing this year to change up your look, will you be adding a splash of colour or going for the chop! I'd love to know.

Product of the Week | Bumble and Bumble Quenching Complex

IMG 0475

 

Hey guys! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all! Today on the Steven & Laurent blog we are talking product of the week and it's perfect for thirsty haired girls out there, and yes I know theres alot of us! Ever since my first appointment with Steven & Laurent I have been obsessed with Bumble and Bumble, the brand has worked wonders on my hair in the salon and at home so today I thought I'd share with you one of my favourite products so far. My hair journey has been quite up and down this year, I've bleached my hair a lot.. ignored it a lot by rarely having it cut and still colouring on top of that, not to mention the constant straightening! Yes it's been a tough year for my hair but I'm glad to say things are on the up and it's never felt better. 

 

I was introduced to Bumble and Bumble Quenching complex when I was last at the salon and Sarah, the stylist who was cutting my hair mentioned that this is one of her favourite products and insisted on putting it on my hair, when I left the salon my hair felt silky smooth and so soft... was this just a one off, my hair always feels great when I leave the salon, surely this Quenching Complex couldn't have fixed my dry, over processed hair? I'm glad to say after weeks of using this little potion my hair has never felt better, usually when I do my own hair at home regardless if I've just been to the salon or not it always seems to feel quite dry a day or two after straightening. We all know I'm quite lazy in the washing department, I wash my hair probably 2-3 times a week so finding products that help to prolong my style and keep it feeling nice is essential. 

 

What is this Quenching Complex you ask? It's a daily leave-in treatment that quenches the cuticle smooth, and seals in moisture. That added moisture really has helped to renew and give shine to my hair again, it's been created for terribly thirsty hair that suffers from chronic dryness, or repeated heat styling... hands up if that you. I apply a small amount to my hair after washing to mid-lengths and ends and also to my hair when it's dry daily, you only need a pea sized amount as a little goes a long way. This product is light on the hair, non greasy and keeps all flyaways at bay, it's strengthening and a joy to use. If your looking for something to reinvent your hair in a better way for 2015 I'd definitely recommend this fab little product. 

 

Bumble and Bumble is vastly becoming my favourite hair brand ever! Have you tried any Bumble products before?
