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!

Make-up Tips for Blondes | Lindsay Griffin Boston

Friday, April 10th, 2015

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

We know how much effort goes into keeping your golden locks looking fresh and we’ve got some make-up tips to help show off your beautiful mane:


1. Use Peachy Blush

Peach blush looks great with any blonde hair color in any season!

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.

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

Marie Robinson, whose celebrity clients include Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johansson, says this year she’ll be focusing on “hair color that doesn’t look like it’s colored at all.” In an interview with Yahoo! Beauty, Robinson describes this trend as leaning towards the natural in an unnatural way.

Balayage is the way to go for some of our blonde clients out there! It is super natural! The color is applied by hand rather than using traditional foils, giving you a natural sun-kissed color. It is low-maintenance and grows out nicely without a line of demarcation. Come on in to our Somerville hair salon for balayage.
