Balayage Boston | Lindsay Griffin

February 6th, 2017

Alyssa came in with chunky ashy highlights and wanted a natural balayage. I used Wella’s color touch 7/03 and 7/1, equal parts on her root, feathering it down and balayaged using Freelights 30 vol. I then glazed with Wella’s relights /03. Color corrected!

Lindsay Griffin Boston | The importance of a consultation

February 20th, 2016

Here at Lindsay Griffin we can’t emphasize enough the importance of a consultation with your stylist. Whether you’re a new client or a regular looking to change things up, a consultation is really valuable for making sure you get exactly what you want and what you’re expecting. We want you to feel great about your hair and love the way you look and talking with us about precisely what you want is a huge part of that! The consultation is an opportunity for you to tell your stylist about any bad past hair disasters that you want to avoid and communicate what it is that you’re hoping to achieve on your next visit. Definitely bring in pictures that show the style and color you’re hoping for and will give your stylist a good idea of how to proceed. Our stylists will even do a strand test for color before your appointment so you’ll know exactly what the end result will be! After chatting with your stylist, she’ll be able to make recommendations about different options for cuts and coloring. The consultation is free so give us a call and book with one of our awesome stylists!

Kevin Murphy’s REPAIR.ME | Lindsay Griffin

February 17th, 2016

 

Do you like coloring and heat-styling your hair? Help keep it healthy with Kevin Murphy’s REPAIR.ME system, now on the shelves here at Lindsay Griffin Boston!

REPAIRMEinstagmy.com

REPAIR.ME is a three-part system that – you guessed it – repairs and restores brittle or damaged hair. By harnessing the power of Green Pea Protein and fruit extracts, the REPAIR.ME system does wonders to rejuvenate and protect color treated hair. Here’s how it works:

REPAIR.ME Wash is a nourishing shampoo that not only removes impurities but strengthens and increases shine as well. Papaya and Bamboo leaf extract smooth the surface and bind to the hair shaft to dramatically increase your hair’s health and shine.

REPAIR.ME Rinse uses Shea Butter, Aloe extract and Acai to nourish hair and protect from future damage by lubricating hair strands and contains vitamins that have repairing effects to promote healthier hair.

RE.STORE is a 1-2 times a week substitute for your daily wash and rinse. Pineapple extract and Green Pea Protein work together to nourish and replenish without weighing hair down.

Be sure to ask your stylist about the new REPAIR.ME system on your next visit to Lindsay Griffin Boston to help keep your hair healthy and beautiful!

Co-Washing: Should You Be Ditching Shampoo?

October 6th, 2015

Many people who come in to see us at Lindsay Griffin Boston are surprised to learn that several of our stylists don’t wash their hair every day, or even every other day. Some people may be a little appalled at the idea of ditching their daily or bi-daily shampoo, but depending on your hair type, it could be the way to go.

Entering co-washing. C0-washing is an abbreviated way of saying “conditioner washing,” meaning that you are washing only with a conditioner and foregoing the daily shampoo.

So what hair types benefit the most from co-washing? Generally, those with wavy or curly, thick, or dry hair will see the best results from washing with conditioner. Textured hair types tend to be dryer, because oil from the scalp are not able to travel all of the twists and turns of the hair strand like they can on straight or thin hair. However, this doesn’t mean that straight and thin hair types can’t co-wash too. It is simply recommended that they continue to shampoo every other day, or every three days, and co-wash on the days in between. Experts recommend that for those who are thinking of trying co-washing more often than not, add in a clarifying shampoo once weekly to get rid of build up that may occur on the scalp.

While co-washing can be great for those who want to stop stripping the natural oils from their hair, it is advised that those who have scalp conditions such a dermatitis should continue to use a daily shampoo, as stopping that regimen could make the condition worse.

We’ve put together a list of the conditioners that we carry, by hair type, that will help you get the benefit of co-washing:

Curly
Kevin.Murphy Luxury Rinse
Davines LOVE Curl Conditioner

Frizzy or Thick
Davines LOVE Smooth Conditioner
Kevin.Murphy Luxury Rinse

Fine
Davines Dede ConditionerKevin.Murphy Angel Rinse

Brittle/Over-Processed or Aging
Davines Nou Nou Conditioner
Kevin.Murphy Young Again Rinse [More specifically for aging, dull hair]

Color Treated
Davines Minu Conditioner

Dehydrated
Kevin.Murphy Hydrate Me Conditioner
Davines Melu Conditioner [More specifically for long or damaged hair]
Davines Momo Conditioner

Also, the two clarifying shampoos we carry carry here at Lindsay Griffin Boston are the Kevin.Murphy Maxi Wash, and Davines Solu Shampoo, both created as a clarifying wash to get rid of buildup on the scalp and hair.

MARSALA & Beauty: How PANTONE’s 2015 Color of the Year Can Be Your Color Too

September 30th, 2015

PANTONE has recently released their Color of the Year for 2015, and the winner is… MARSALA

Marsala_wallpaper_Pantone_Color_of_the_Year_2015-2048x1536                                                                                         Photo: PANTONE

Marsala (Pantone 18-1438) is a deep red hue that is reminiscent of the wine that inspired its name. The experts at PANTONE deem this color as a “natural fit for the kitchen and dining room,” and beauty writers at Allure Magazine call the hue “universally flattering.”

If you don’t know the history of the PANTONE Color of the Year, here’s a brief run down. PANTONE began choosing a color of the year in 2000, and has chosen a new color sequentially each year since. PANTONE’s color of that year then serves as inspiration for a number of color trends and industries: interior design, makeup and beauty, graphic design, fashion, and much more.

Here are a few beauty products in Marsala shades that are flawless for fall, and flattering for all:

Essie – “A-List
$8.50

A perfect Marsala-esque nail polish from the pros at Essie. Can they do no wrong?

Product Feature: KEVIN.MURPHY “PLUMPING” Line

September 23rd, 2015

Let’s discuss what no one wants to talk about: thinning hair. It’s not fun, especially for ladies, because we don’t expect it to happen to us. There are a number of causes, from stress to more serious hair loss conditions such as alopecia.

KEVIN.MURPHY‘s excellent product line has a solution for this exact situation. The Kevin.Murphy PLUMPING line has products designed to help thinning hair get back to its old self.

The set includes the Plumping Wash (shampoo), Plumping Rinse (conditioner), and Body.Mass, (leave-in treatment). Grouped together, these products not only can help those who have experienced hair loss or thinning, but can also help to plump up extra-fine hair strands in those who aren’t necessarily losing hair, but are looking for a thicker head of hair overall. Also, this line smells AMAZING.

We’ve already had several happy customers who use the Plumping line, and even a couple of our stylists use it on their own hair! If this sounds like a product that you think could help you, we’d be happy to set you up and let the Kevin.Murphy products speak for themselves!
