SU: Sun-Focused Products by Davines

July 24th, 2015

Have you ever wished for a product that acted as a sunscreen for the hair you spend so much time washing, cutting, and styling?  Well, your wish is our command! One of the newest products we have on the shelves here at LGBH+CO is the SU line by Davines, created specifically for the sun-soaked summer months.

Davines, a hair care product company hailing from Parma, Italy, is dedicated to making quality products that are sustainable and have a low environmental impact. Aside from using eco-friendly packaging and ingredients from farms in Italy, each package tells you exactly where the main ingredients were farmed from. (For example, the SU hair milk’s citrus mytrifolia extract is from “Mr Parodi’s farm, Finale Ligure, Savona, Italy.”) How cool is that!?

We’re currently carrying four SU products: the hair & body wash, hair milk, hair mask, and aftersun for face and body.

Here’s a little breakdown of what each product has to offer:

SU hair & body wash – Very simple, and exactly what it says. The hair & body wash is a wash that works for both your hair and body after being out in the sun. It’s very delicate and hydrating.

SU hair milk
– A sun-protecting and conditioning milk for hair exposed to the sun. It can be used as a protectant while out in the sun, or as a conditioner after shampooing.

SU hair mask
– An aftersun replenishing mask for sun-exposed hair. It helps to put back what the rays take out.

SU aftersun
– This one is not for your hair, but for your face and body. It’s a cream that replenishing your skin after sun exposure.

Sleep On It | Lindsay Griffin Boston

April 17th, 2015

Lindsay Griffin Boston Hairstylist + Co. knows you need your beauty rest, so we’ve picked 5 overnight hairstyles that help you get gorgeous while you sleep! All Davines products used to create these looks can be purchased in our Somerville salon.

 

The Look: Va-Va Voom Volume

Volumous Hair

How to Get it: Starting with damp hair spritzed with Davines Oi All-In-One-Milk, flip your head over and gather all your hair in a ponytail at the top of your head. Form a bun, secure with hair pins, and mist with Davines This Is A Medium Hair Spray. After you wake up the next day, let your hair down and lightly brush through with a soft bristle brush and lift at the roots for added volume.

The Look: Beachy Boho Waves

Beachy Waves

How to Get it: Spritz dry hair with Davines This Is A Sea Salt Spray, then slip a stretchy headband around the crown of your head. Start by grabbing a 2-inch section at the front. Lift it up and loop it back toward your face, and tuck it into the headband. Repeat this motion on the next piece of hair, grabbing overlapping sections of your hair and continue around the rest of your head until you reach the opposite side on the front. The next morning, remove the headband, brush through your hair for bigger waves, and finish with a mist of Davines Hair Refresher.

The Look: Paper Doll Curls

Paper Doll Curls

How to Get it: Create a side part in damp hair and apply Davines This Is A Curl Building Serum throughout. Rip up 1-inch wide pieces of an old t-shirt or pillowcase, and roll a 1-inch section of your hair up around the paper towel toward your roots. Once you reach your scalp, tie the ends of the paper towel together to secure the curl. Repeat this process until you’ve rolled your entire head. Wake up and remove the paper towel pieces. Use your fingers to gently separate the curls as desired. Lift at the roots and finish with a mist of Davines This Is a Strong Hair Spray.

The Look: Vintage Vixen Waves

Vintage Vixen Waves

How to Get it: Apply Davines This Is A Medium Hold Modeling Gel to damp hair, then create a deep side part and have several bobby pins on deck. Starting at the front of your head, take a two-inch section of hair, rap it multiple times around two fingers, then carefully remove your fingers while maintaining the curl shape. Pin the curl to your head using a bobby pin, and repeat until you’ve completed your entire head. Add a second bobby pin to create an X shape so your curls don’t move in your sleep. The next morning, remove all pins, then brush your hair using a boar bristle brush.

The Look: Chic Crinkles

Crimped Hair

How to Get it: Apply mousse Davines This is Medium Hold Pliable Paste to damp hair, focusing more on the length and avoiding your roots. Separate your hair into four sections, then braid each section, starting as high up as you want the crimps to fall, and secure the end with an elastic. When you wake up, use a paddle brush to brush through your hair and create small crimps. Finish with a Davines This Is An Invisible No Gas Spray.

Spring is in the air and many Lindsay Griffin Boston Hairstylist + Co. clients are celebrating with highlights and blonde balayages.

2. Avoid Pale Pinks

Pale pinks tend to wash out blondes and cause facial features to fade away. Go a little bolder and brighter with your pinks!

Pale Pink Lips

3. Beach Blondes: Use Warmer Colors

If you’re a beach blonde, you will find warm colors such as copper and bronze totally compliment your hair color.

Golden Blonde

4. Golden Blondes : Pinks & Peaches

Golden blondes look gorgeous in pink and peach tones.  Remember to avoid pale, pale pinks and go with something a little deeper.

5. Platinum Blondes: Cool Colors

Cooler colors like blues and silvers are the perfect compliment to platinum blonde locks.
