Cover up Un-washed Hair with an Easy Do

Bumble and bumble stylist Q. Ellis-Lee created an easy do-it-yourself look for Refinery29.com, Bb says it’s perfect for the summer days you spend at music festivals. Whether you haven’t washed your hair for a few days or you just want it off your neck, this is a simple style that will keep your hair washing secrets while making you look glam.

Follow these simple steps that Refinery29.com‘s Megan McIntyre created after Q taught the trend:

Start off by emulsifying a dime-sized amount of Bumble and bumble Color-Minded Styling Balm in your hands, then run it through your strands. Q says that by coating your hands in the balm, you’ll get the most even coverage. The balm has UV protection in it, so it will help protect your mane from the sun, as well as adding a small amount of hold and shine. It also keeps your hair moisturized, so it’s not all dry and full of flyaways.

Once your hair has been properly “balmed,” use your fingers to create a slightly messy, deep side-part. You want to lift and “scoop” your hair at the root as you pull it back to help create a bit of extra volume.

Starting on the side of your

head that has the most hair,

begin rolling your hair in towards your head, gathering in more as you go. When you get to your ear, place a pin downwards into the roll to help secure. You want your roll to be volumized and a bit loose, but not falling out, so if you have thick strands you might need to use more than one.

Continue rolling until you get to the nape of your neck, then place another pin at the end of the roll. Repeat on the opposite side.

Gather the two loose sections of hair at the back of your

head into a ponytail and secure with a hair bungee. You can use an elastic, but Q says he prefers using the bungee as it is easier to position and wrap.

Take your ponytail and twist it until it bends upwards into a roll.

Continue rolling up until all the hair is in this loose chignon, then pin the ends of your hair at the base of the neck to hide them and anchor the style.

To add a little bit of festival flair, take a fresh flower and trim the stem so it is about an inch or two long. Take a bobby pin and attach it to the flower, then push the pin into your hair at the base of the chignon.

Try this look at home or ask your Haven stylist to style your hair using the summer look from Bb. stylist Q. Visit Haven to pick up any Bumble and bumble products you need.

The Many Uses of Moroccanoil

If you asked us our favorite product it would be hard to choose; however, we couldn’t deny that we LOVE the Moroccanoil Treatment.

Why do we love the Moroccanoil Treatment so much?

  • All hair types can use it (yes, even those with fine and light-colored hair!)
  • It’s versatile, use it on damp or dry hair
  • It adds shine while also promoting healthy hair
  • It’s residue-free so it can be used as a conditioning, styling, and finishing tool.

Moroccanoil says it best:

Moroccanoil Treatment transforms hair so completely because it’s a formula that brings back lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine; and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in hair made by heat, styling and environmental damage. Hair goes from brittle and broken to strong adn flexible. From rough and frizzy to brilliantly shiny, smooth and manageable–the perfect starting point for effortless styling.

To use this product apply a dime size amount to towel dried hair working from mid-length to ends. After the hair is dry the Moroccanoil Treatment can be used to tame fly-aways and further condition dry ends.

Insider tip: Use Moroccanoil on just-shaved legs to restore moisture and make them shine!

We love Moroccanoil and we’re sure that you will too! Pick up your bottle of Moroccanoil treatment from Haven and ask your stylist to use the product on your hair during your next visit.

Trained to Tease

Do you work hard to give your hair a little extra volume but it just doesn’t stick?

Master stylist at Haven, Liza Thibodeau offers her tips to train your hair that its okay to be teased.

Start off using a tail comb and Bb hair powder. The hair powder comes in a variety of colors to match your hair shade. Pick up a section of hair no wider than the end of the tail comb. Shake the hair powder, spray at root (holding can 3″ away), then tease with comb. Repeat for a few sections, lay hair flat and gently smooth over the top. Finish with the Morocanoil Strong Hold Aerosol.

The hair powder is stronger than regular hair spray and is made to tease! If you want volume that lasts all day (or night!) pick up a can of Bb hair powder and get teasing!

Get Spring Break Ready

Need a break? Ready for Spring? Thank goodness it’s spring break season!

Whether you are gearing up for a trip south or to one of the great indoor water parks close to home, you don’t want to be caught in your bikini without having prepared.

No one wants to deal with the hassle of bringing a razor on vacation with them, or taking the time to shave. Alas, you need a wax.

Our skin therapists are highly trained in all waxes including leg, arm, underarm, bikini, and *brazilian.

All hair that  is being waxed is recommended to have grown for two weeks and be the length of about a piece of rice. Once waxed, hair is typically removed for about two weeks and then slowly begins to regrow.

If you are gearing up for spring break and want smooth legs sans razor call Haven to schedule your wax appointment today. (920)339-1111

*Megan White is the only skin therapist that specializes in brazilian waxes.

Don’t give Dirty Hair a Bad Rep.

We have a bone to pick with whoever decided that dirty hair isn’t a good thing. Don’t get us wrong, hygiene is important and washing your hair when necessary is a must, but that doesn’t mean you need to overkill your scalp with shampoo.

A hair wash can last longer than just one day. In the hair world “2nd day hair” and even  “3rd day hair” is common. If you regularly get a professional shampoo and blow out your wash can last 2 extra days. If you are washing at home stick to  every other day for a wash.

Master stylist, Kimberlee Gast from Haven Salon and Spa shares her insider tips on dirty hair: “At first it might seem like your scalp is oily, but commit to a schedule and your body will begin to adjust. The natural oils from your scalp give your hair needed moisture and make it easier to style.”

Kim explains the other benefits of second day hair: “It’s a time saver, you can cut your morning routine down by not having to wash your hair in the shower or spend time blow drying it.”

Other added benefits include the break it gives your wallet. Wearing second day hair will help your color and your shampoo last longer.

Also, if you’re using the Aveda Invati products it is recommended by Aveda that you only wash every second or third day for best results.

Looking for second day hair styles? Going wash-free gives your hair extra volume, perfect for a pony with some lift. It is also a great time to wear a messy braid. If you want to style your hair down add a few curls to the ends — everyone will be fooled that you didn’t spend hours doing your hair.

And Kim’s personal favorite, hair accessories. Just because you’re recycling a wash doesn’t mean that you need to reuse the same hairstyle. Headbands are a fun way to spice up your outfit and are affordable. Kim gets hers from anywhere and everywhere, especially Claires, H & M, and Charlotte Russe.

Redefine the bad rep. that dirty hair has and embrace the variety that you can add to your style by not being a slave to daily hair washing.

Aveda Lash Abundance

Aveda’s Lash Abundance is the natural way to boost your lashes. This serum will create fuller, thicker, and longer lashes with a twice daily application.

In just eight weeks, the botanically-based formula enhances your lashes to make them more voluminous than ever.

Haven stylist Courtney Wunder has been using Lash Abundance for the last four weeks and already notices a difference. Gearing up for her August wedding, Courtney is hoping to see a dramatic improvement in the quality of her lashes. “I love it because it doesn’t dry my eyes out, they feel the same except my lashes are getting longer and stronger.”

Courtney loves Lash Abundance and we know you will too. Pick your boosting serum up at Haven and love your lashes!

No Wash Necessary

The once common rule that daily hair washing is a must has been broken. Messy, second day hair is in. With a few tips you can keep your look professional and trendy even on the second day.

The messy ponytail is perfect for the office, errands, or a night out. Pair it with neutral make up and hot red lips to complete the look.

Check out Bb. Editorial Stylist Rolando Beauchamp’s how-to video so you can master the messy ponytail at home.
