TACO PARTY! – New Vegan Spot in Ball Square

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

_MJPr23U                                                                         Logo: Taco Party

Just down the street from Lindsay Griffin Boston Hairstylist + CO, a delightful new taco restaurant has opened up. Formerly a food truck-only service, TACO PARTY has just opened up their first stationary location right here in Ball Square!

First of all, Taco Party is completely vegan. As a meat lover myself, I was pretty skeptical of having a taco with no chicken or steak. But to be honest, these tacos are great. The restaurant’s menu boasts some unique combinations and flavors that really challenge what you know about the taco world. Some of the menu items are gluten free as well! Aside from tacos, the Party also includes chips and a few different dips including classic guacamole and pinto bean dip. It’s completely worth it to try everything.

Also, Taco Party has vegan baked goods! There are plenty of different flavors of vegan donuts, cakes, and other tasty treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.

So when you get the craving for a delicious taco, stop in at Taco Party, grab an “Hecho en Somerville” sticker to pop on your car or laptop, and tell them the girls at Lindsay Griffin Boston sent you! Because we <3 tacos!

The Internet Loves OI!

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

One of the most popular products we sell by far here at Lindsay Griffin Boston is the OI product line from Davines. As it turns out, the people of the Internet love it too!

Check out these reviews of the OI products from real customers and your favorite beauty sources!

A customer on Birchbox posted this review after receiving a sample of the OI Conditioner in her monthly box: “I originally received this conditioner in my box but HAD TO purchase the full bottle after just one use. It makes my wavy, untameable hair so soft & manageable.”

Davines’ OI Beautifying Potion received the Best of Beauty Award from Allure in 2012, and garnered this review from the magazine: “Proof that oil needn’t equal grease, this formula softens hair and adds just a subtle hint of polish.”

Olivia Singer, writing for Into the Gloss, wrote a glowing review of the entire Davines line, and had this to say about the OI All In One Hair Milk: “Both a heat-protector and a shiny, conditioning moisturizer, it doesn’t leave me with sticky or crispy strands which are the bane of my hair-product-using life.”

For more information on the Davines OI line, stop by and ask one of our stylists for help finding the right product for you!

Tuesday, August 18th, 2015

This summer’s biggest hair trend is not quite blonde, and not quite brown. The new combination color is called “bronde,” and it’s taking the hair world by storm. The beautiful golden color is perfect for those warm summer nights, and is great for a girl who’s looking to stand out from the crowd.

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

Sea salt sprays have been HUGE this summer. They give you those perfect beachy waves that are great for the office, lunch, or a night on the town, and they leave your hair smelling amazing as well.

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.

_MG_2854-2                                            Photo by Christine Labbe

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.
