Kevin Murphy’s COLOR BUG: Intense Hair Color – For One Night!

Friday, August 14th, 2015

If you’ve been looking to spice up your hair styling routine but can’t commit to a permanent wild hair color, we have the solution for you. The Kevin Murphy line has created a product that allows us to have the crazy color we truly desire for one night only, and then wash it out when we are ready to return back to our normal, everyday lives. Enter COLOR BUG.

Color Bug acts like a hair chalk. It comes in a small applicator pod and is rubbed onto the strands to transfer the color. There are six different colors available currently: pink, purple, neon green, orange, white, and shimmer (which comes out as a sparkly gold).

A few tips from Kevin Murphy on applying Color Bug:

1. Use a product before applying as a base. This will help the color to stick to your hair. He recommends
2. For a more intense color, use a product like Kevin Murphy’s “Night Rider” paste to deepen the color.
3. For lighter shades, use a product like Kevin Murphy’s Hair Resort or Anti Gravity Sprays as the base.
4. For a pastel color, mix any Color Bug with the White Bug.
5. Finish off with a hairspray and you’re good to go.
6. Be sure to use a towel over your shoulders to protect your clothing while applying!

Summer Must-Have: Sea Salt Spray!

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

We carry a couple of great sea salt sprays here at LGBH+CO that will make you feel like you’ve just come from the beach (minus the sunburn and the sand stuck to everything).

SU: Sun-Focused Products by Davines

Friday, 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.

_MG_2851-1                                                                                                        Photo by Christine Labbe

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.

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