Kevin Murphy’s REPAIR.ME | Lindsay Griffin

Wednesday, 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!

Product Feature: KEVIN.MURPHY “PLUMPING” Line

Wednesday, 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!

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).

Kevin Murphy – Hair Resort Spray

Davines – This Is A Sea Salt Spray

Davines doesn’t mess around with product names. This Is A Sea Salt Spray is indeed a sea salt spray, described by Birchbox as a “life-changing” product. Not to mention it’s a paraben free, zero-environmental-impact product, and a winner of Coastal Living’s 2014 Beach Beauty Award.

BONUS PRODUCT! Kevin Murphy – Shimmer Shine

Now that you know the basics, stop in to see us at LGBH+CO or ask your stylist at your next appointment which sea salt sprays they love!

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.

Sleep On It | Lindsay Griffin Boston

Friday, 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.
