How to Create Carefree Curls with a Flat Iron.

Hair Detox with Bumble and bumble Sunday Shampoo

Bumble and bumble Sunday ShampooIs your hair overworked, overloaded and downright droopy? Sometimes product overload can weigh your hair down leaving it lackluster and flat.

If your hair needs to detox try Bumble and bumble’s Sunday Shampoo. This ultralight, weekly shampoo will clarify and absolve hair impurities, get rid of product residue and excess oil leaving you with a brighter Monday ahead. It’s an excellent alternative to regular shampoo for product junkies (present company included) who feel like they need to detox their strands once in awhile.

Bumble and bumble is a New York City based hair care company dedicated to emphasizing the individual, transcending trends and launching looks – they also are famous for the free haircuts and color at their Bb.U events if you’re lucky enough to drop by the NYC salon!

You can catch B&b products featured in every magazine and beauty site you can think of, and you can usually report a B&b stylist sighting behind the scenes at a major fashion show. From their shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments, to styling and grooming crèmes, waxes and sprays, Bumble and bumble is known as one of the most influential hair companies in the industry. Hello, B&b Surf Spray is one of the most popular wave sprays on the planet.

Whether you choose the Sunday Shampoo like I did, or go for something different like the Crème De Coco shampoo, the Curl Conscious conditioner, the Sumo wax, or anything in between, Bumble and bumble continues to raise the standards of the beauty industry through talent, inspiration, and unique products.

Sunday shampoo is a great clarifying shampoo and truly one of my favorites when my hair seems to be suffering from product overload. Sorry, you color-treated ladies, this isn’t for you, but if your hair is chemical-free and in need of a little TLC, I see brighter days ahead.

What to Expect with Hair Extensions

Eva LongoriaIf you are taking your hairstyling cue from celebs like Eva Longoria, you know that hair extensions have always been a must-have. Tons of starlets from Jennifer Love Hewitt to Lindsay Lohan are in love with theirs, Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton have their own hair extension product lines, even D-lister Kathy Griffin jumped on the trend – and her extensions look lovely!

Sure, we’ve all seen the Hairdo clip-ins courtesy of Jessica Simpson and Ken Paves (and truthfully, they are pretty good – Eva Longoria loves ’em!) but if you want to go for the gold, hit the salon up for some real hair.

Getting hair extensions is a slightly indulgent, pricey procedure that will set you back a pretty penny, but the results are as close to the real thing as you can get – and hey, you deserve it! If you are looking for a slight revamp or a total new ‘do, hair extensions will deliver a dramatic change in just a few hours.

But how are hair extensions applied? What happens when you sit in the chair? The explanation on this video should meet all of your extension expectations….

Celebrities from all walks of fame, from Hollywood A listers through D know that with hair extensions it’s ok to stretch the truth. Go ahead and start channeling your own inner Eva….
