I like…

Bumble

Hey YOU!

Ok so here is some great news for you!

As some of you might know one of my all time favourite company´s and their products is …Bumble and bumble!

This is a true grass roots hair company all stemming from the Bumble and bumble salons and academy in New York City. Its a company that has always inspired me, partly because of the imagery but also because of their approach to the industry and pride for the hairdressing trade.

When they started to produce their own products I thought ok….these will be good!

Well I wasn´t disappointed and today I find myself grabbing for Bumble and bumble products both at work and at home.

At our store…YOU Stockholm we are the flagship store for the brand, which is something we are very happy about and now…at last we have the exclusive rights in Sweden to have Bumble and bumble on line at beauty.theyouway.com

I really cant recommend this brand strongly enough.

To help you along the way, here are some of my favourite products…

* At home I love using B&B Surf Foam Wash and Rinse…perfect for giving fluffy or flat hair a little more full and textured look and feel. You know….just like when you climb out of the surf and your hair dries in the sun…(oops now I´m drifting;) No really…a fantastic product!

* For a loose and lived in feel when styling I love to use the B&B grooming cream. Either when blow drying, containing frizz, separating curls or even as a soft hold but cool finishing product for you guys I find this product a must have

* Ok…this one is easy to describe. The best dry shampoo on the market…hands down is B&B Dry Spun. Non powdery and gives loads of texture and volume…do it!

* Then there is a series which I believe is really special and is used at home by my better half (helene) Based on 6 different oils the invisible oil series of Shampoo, Conditioner and Primer makes your hair feels really quite amazing! Perfect for giving your hair a luxurious look and feel…even on finer hair. Perfect too, if you have , dry, course and/or frizzy hair this is the stuff. I find the product light enough to use on even on more fine “scandi” hair without making your hair feel heavy…Love it!

Give it a go folks…YOU won´t be disappointed!

In my chair

11024098_1550690915203632_992300713_nI’ve been cutting this awesome dude…Peter Svensson’s hair for donkey’s years…back to the days when he was rocking the world with his little band….The Cardigans!

Nowadays….without the most of being aware of it, he is writing some of the worlds mega hits both alone and with an old mate of ours…Max Martin;)

One of the things I really admire with Peter is the fact that he, despite all of the success, has remained super humble. Now thats nice!

Make it YOU

What-Lived--Hair-Looks-Like

Hey YOU:)

I have to say….this is one of my all time favourite styles…all the way from cut, colour style and vibe.

When I look at Arielle Vandenberg´s hair I think of pictures of Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen…(I do mean their hair;)

All very similar and all VERY popular. Personally a feeling and finish in the hair which I believe is a sexy laid back but still powerful statement. I think it could come from my days growing up surfing in the 70s and 80´s back home in Australia…even a lot of the guys had (and still have) something similar.

To get the look…MAKE IT YOU!

CUT

Have your hair cut into a long shattered bob feel with very loose disconnected layers.

COLOUR

Have the hair coloured with a loose ombre feel but using a combination of your natural hair colour and highlights which gently break up the regrowth and frames the face. A tip is to use up to 3 different tones.

STYLE

*Blowdry your hair with a blow dry lotion like Kevin Murphy´s Anti Gravity creating root volume with your fingers.

*Once dry brush through and the using a large curling iron like the Cerawand 25-38 and wind in large vertical sections away from the face on both sides and leave to cool.

*Brush through using a Mason Pearson Brush  to loosen up the look.

* Finally apply a touch of dry Shampoo like Fresh Hair also by Kevin Murphy to make the hair cool a little lived in.

Now simply ROCK IT!
