A New Look with Bumble and Bumble

A New Look with Bumble and Bumble

Thursday, July 21, 2011 by Wendy Lam

Summer is here and I decided I need a change in my hair color, so last Friday Bumble and Bumble invited me to their salon uptown to get my hair done. I met with Bb. colorist, Zoe, and we talked through what I wanted and how we can achieve the color. I wanted the ombré look and to go lighter, and I was told Zoe is the BEST ombré colorist at the salon so I knew I was in good hands. I’ve had a slight ombré before but it wasn’t dramatic enough and to make things more interesting we decided on a pop of blue/purple tie-dye to finish it off! Also the ombré look is perfect for those that are lazy and low maintenance like me, I don’t like going to the salon all the time so this is perfect. When the roots grow out, it’ll just be part of the look haha. The color took about 3 hours or so, and just so you know if you get hungry or thirsty there’s a cafe in the salon. And I can’t forget to mention that the shampoo area has massage chairs while you’re getting your hair washed. How fancy!

After my color, I was escorted downstairs for my cut with Todor, he also cuts Zoe’s hair. I wanted to keep my hair long but wanted layers since I have a lot of hair and it can get heavy as it gets longer. Todor is very skilled, he used a razor to do the layering and cut and only used scissors for detailing. This was my first time being cut entirely by a razor, it was pretty interesting and the cut was quick. Took about 30-45 minutes and I was done!

I was really excited and couldn’t wait to see the final results, after about 5 hours I was finally done! All I can say is good things are worth the wait, I was ecstatic with the results! Love my hair so much and I’ve gotten a ton of compliments already! Many thanks to Bumble and Bumble for taking care of my hair! Here’s a sneak peek of my hair, I’ll be posting the final look in the next post!
