With coconut derived cream, UV protection, and protective agent for your color, you’re sure to achieve a required standard of quality and beauty fit for any fashion queen. To help you decide which style you should rock, here’s what we recommend for this autumn season.

Pumpkin, Spice It Up

It’s official, there’s more to this fall trend than your favorite choice of coffee. This bold, defining color is sure to make you want to indulge in all things autumn. With a deep, rich variation of chestnut or blonde painted over copper sections, you will have a beautiful dimension that will make autumn leaves shine with envy. We’re gushing over this color and can’t think of a better way to kick off the season. Using our Keune color line, we achieve the depth and full bodied color you desire, with a product so pure it’s enriched with organic plant extracts. Keep your color closer, longer, with a formula designed with silk proteins and LP300 to protect your hair during the process.

Rich In Chocolate

A classic color that never goes out of style. This fall, we are bringing in the bashful brunette and adding dimensions of caramel, copper, and amber hues for a full bodied style. Stand out against the soon-to-be-snow with this luscious look. In addition to the silk proteins in our color, Formula 18 is also added to all of our color line. This ingredient is a chemically resilient material which binds the cuticle of your hair, providing long term protection from hair color and environment exposure. Our color line ensures the bold, sultry depth of your brunette remains in the midst of the changing seasons.

Honey-Do Blonde

They’re back, those creamy blonde hues we melt over. For the platinum blondes who are yearning for some depth in their do, this may be the option for you. Add some warmth to balance out the chill in the air with these toasty blonde tones. Here at Bombshell, our color boasts natural ingredients, like essential oils or sunscreens, to help protect your hair at any stage. Our color line is the best option for long-lasting tone, providing up to 30% extra life of your color choice.

Our Fall Fix for Summer Hair

Bombshell Salon is your source for high-style hair. As your stylists, we know that the best hair styles come from the healthiest hair. That’s why we carry the best haircare products here in our Birmingham salon, including the Treat.Me line of haircare products from Kevin.Murphy.

The Damage Is Done

Now, we all love summer. But along with summer sun and summer heat come a variety of hair damaging sources. The sun lightens and damages hair, causing split ends. Meanwhile, hot, dry air pulls moisture out of your hair, causing breakage. If you’re all about the pool during the summer, chlorine can cause even further damage. Chlorine keeps pool water sanitary, but it pulls natural oils out of your hair, reducing its sheen. At the end of a summer day, your hair might by dry, lacklustre, and full of split ends. That’s where our hair care products come in.

Our Fantastic Fix

Bombshell Salon features products from Kevin.Murphy. Their Treat.Me line is full of products that are packed with the right ingredients to restore your hair to its former glory. Let’s take a look at these potent, natural ingredients and what they do for your hair:

  • Sugar Cane

Sugar cane contains glycolic acid, a compound that aids the retention of moisture within a hair. Glycolic acid also exfoliates and cleanses hair.

  • Veggie & Plant Proteins

Veggie and plant proteins give your hair that lovely sheen. These proteins smooth the texture of your hair, making your style radiate.

  • Nettle

Nettle extract is an astringent with anti-inflammatory qualities. This makes nettle extract an excellent ingredient for scalp health.

  • Mongongo Oil

Stave off sun-lightened hair with mongongo oil, an oil comprised largely of linoleic acid - a natural guard against ultraviolet rays and airborne pollutants.

  • Gardenia

Collagen is a protective protein that’s abundant in both skin and hair. Gardenia flower extract maintains the collagen structure, thus fending off potential damage.

  • Japanese Green Tea

Green tea further maintains collagen, as well as elastin (another key component in skin cells). In addition, green tea contains caffeine, which may stimulate hair growth and skin health by improving blood flow to surface cells across the scalp.

  • Vitamin C

Mitigate the effect of free radicals with the power of vitamin C. Vitamin C neutralizes free radicals, thus protecting your scalp and hair.

  • Monoi Oil

Heighten your hair sheen and boost its softness with miraculous monoi oil. This oil won’t bog your hair down with weight, just lift its spirits with brightness.

Your Fall Fix at Bombshell Salon

  • Now that the sun drops on another summer, and fall is close behind, it’s time to reclaim your hair. With our Treat.Me line of haircare products from Kevin.Murphy, your fall fix is easy. Take this salon-strength hair treatment home with you to get the best results. You’ll notice a transformation from sun-damaged summer hair to fabulous, lustrous, smooth fall hair.

Wedding Hairstyle Don’ts

bridal-img.jpg

In our previous blog, we’d talked about the best things to do to get your hair in premier condition for your wedding. It’s a big day, and as your wedding stylist we know that it’s our job to take some of that stress away. We want you to be comfortable, confident, and absolutely gorgeous as you walk down the aisle. That’s why we’re dishing up advice on things you should avoid leading up to your wedding. Here are some wedding style ‘dont’s’ (also, you can catch up on our wedding style ‘dos’ here):

Wedding Hair-Don’ts

Keep It Together

Don’t get crazy before the wedding – at least not with your hair. Refrain from using any new products, dyes, and coloring, you might not like the outcome. Give yourself several spare months if you want to try a new style before you tie the knot. A wild new ‘do is a definite don’t.

Keep It Natural

While you want to look your absolute best on your big day, don’t go overboard. Although you may want model-caliber hair, you should work with a style that works for you. We all have different figures, different eyes, and different faces; choose a style that works for you. Don’t get caught up on one individual model.

Plan Ahead

Don’t leave planning your hairstyle to the last day! Communicate with your wedding stylist to find the right style that works for your hair. If you choose to work with Bombshell here in Birmingham, stop in often and plenty so that we can hone in on the ideal style for you. This way, you know exactly what to expect, and you’ll have full confidence and peace of mind as the big day rolls around the corner.

Welcome to Our Stylist Blog!

Welcome to the Bombshell Salon’s Stylist Blog! We’re your Birmingham salon, and we’re here to keep you informed about all things hair - as well as anything else we’d like to dish up. So stay posted and check back often to learn the latest from Bombshell. Today, we’re talking about some of the dos and don’ts you’ll want to keep in mind as you're seeking the perfect style for your wedding (oh, did we mention we provide bridal styling too?). Here are our wedding ‘hairDOs’. We’ll be posting our ‘hairDON’Ts’ soon!

Wedding Hair-Dos:

Get a Professional Styling

First off, it’s crucial that you use a wedding stylist. Although you may prefer to get your hair cut, trimmed, shampooed, conditioned, and colored at the same salon nine times out of ten, this time you want an experienced professional behind the scissors. We know that this day is your day. We know how important that is, and how valuable the perfect hairstyle is. Be confident, you have the best hair you can.

Opt for Optimum Length

Next, be sure to have your hair length as you’d like it prior to styling. If you have a length in mind, try to trim to that length about a week before your styling session. If you need a full cut to get to your desired length, give yourself a few weeks (three to four weeks) for your hair to grow out a bit more naturally.

The Perfect Condition

Finally, you want your hair to be as healthy as possible. Have your hair professionally conditioned to give it the luster you desire. If you want to go the extra mile, you can even change your diet for an optimum sheen (you’ll have to start several months ahead of the wedding to see real results). Check out this article from WebMD to get the scoop on the healthy hair diet.
