August 2012: Hairdresser's Invisible Oil
Bumble and bumble hairdressers needed an oil they couldn't find elsewhere. Something clear and light, that worked sublimely on all hair types. Something that vanished into hair, leaving a feathersoft feel and a trace of shine. That worked on wet or dry, coarse or calm types, instantly – for a sensational finish.
Hairdresser's Invisible Oil was made to meet our hairdressers' high–performance standards.
Hairdresser's Invisible Oil is a transformative, lightweight, clear–as–day hair oil that works for all types of hair. It features a luxurious blend of oils and extracts to soften, tame flyaways and add shine. With UV filter, it helps maintain health of hair.
Why: Hair feels softer immediately and over time; hair looks and feels healthy; smooth and silky; hair feels conditioned; frizz dramatically reduced; tames flyaways; detangles hair; helps strengthen against breakage; heat styling protection; helps protect hair from the drying effects of the sun; contains UVA/UVB filters; safe/ appropriate for color-treated hair.
Who: All types of dry hair.
When: Anytime, before blow-drying or after for flyaway control and a trace of shine.
How: Work sparingly into damp hair before heat-styling, or smooth through dry for a sensational finish.

Hair Creations is now accepting nominations for their
“Makeover Mondays”, set to begin in June
Local salon to commence six months of makeovers for deserving community members.
Saratoga Springs, New York - Hair Creations, located on 12 Phila Street will commence a six-month complimentary makeover event beginning the last Monday in June. The event, called “Makeover Mondays”, will center on giving back to six special women in the community. Each month’s recipients will be chosen based on the following criteria:
- June 27: A professional woman who has fallen on hard times due to the present economic climate, and thus, may need some assistance with appearance enhancement before starting the interview process. Nomination deadline is Saturday June 18. Voting is from Sunday June 19 – Wednesday June 22.
- July 25: A deserving woman who has been - for a significant period of time - selflessly advocating for a cause and/or volunteering her time. Nomination deadline is Saturday July 16. Voting is from Sunday July 17 – Wednesday July 20.
- August 29: A Dress for Success female client who requires help with appearance enhancement as she heads out into the job field. Only Dress for Success clients can be nominated for this month. Nomination deadline is Saturday August 20. Voting is from Sunday August 21 – Wednesday August 24.
- September 26: A local woman in the community who is considered a hero in an extraordinary way. Nomination deadline is Saturday September 17. Voting is from Sunday September 18 – Wednesday September 21.
- October 24: A woman who has survived cancer, or another life threatening illness, and is at the point in her recovery in which she is ready to feel a sense of rejuvenation of both her appearance and spirit. Nomination deadline is Saturday October 15. Voting is from Sunday October 16 – Wednesday October 19.
- November 28: A woman who has been a selfless caregiver (for example, taking care of a loved one who has fallen ill) and deserves renewal of both body and spirit. Nomination deadline is Saturday November 19. Voting is from Sunday November 20 – Wednesday November 23.
“The primary focus of “Makeover Mondays” is to give back to deserving people in the community,” said Hair Creations owner and stylist Jaysie Walts. “We’re excited to showcase how inner and outer beauty can work simultaneously to bring a sense of self-worth, strength, confidence, and happiness.”
The criteria for each month were chosen by the staff at Hair Creations. The salon is asking people in the Saratoga Springs community to nominate someone they feel fits one of the above themes.
The steps to nominate someone are simple:
Email MakeoverMondays@haircreationssalon.com with details of the nominee’s story along with a current photo of the nominee and their contact information (name, phone number, address, and email address). Nominations should be done in an altruistic fashion; that is to say, nominate someone else and someone truly deserving. Candidates who are nominated should be available all day on the appropriate Monday and be open to a makeover experience, as well. Hair Creations will read each story and pick the top three nominees. Those three stories will then be posted on Hair Creations’ Facebook page, where people will vote for the nominee they feel is most deserving of a makeover. The nominee whose story receives the most votes will receive the Makeover Monday experience. Hair Creations will also give the two remaining nominees a gift certificate for any one service during the salon’s hours of operation, as well as a complimentary Bumble and bumble product that suits their hair type.
The nominee who is chosen for Makeover Mondays will come in for an initial consultation prior to the makeover and then on the last Monday of the appropriate month. Hair Creations encourages the person who nominated the makeover candidate (or a close friend) to also come in the day of the makeover to share in the experience and offer support and a sense of familiarity.
“Makeover Mondays” is an experience in which the makeover recipient receives the Hair Creations Full Service client experience. That is, an in-depth customized consultation, education on how to style her hair and which hair care products will help to enhance and maintain the new style, a complimentary hair color and hair cut, and complimentary Bumble and bumble hair products to help maintain her new look. In addition, the makeover recipient will start the day with a transformational massage from Healing Spirit Massage, receive a professional make-up application by Amy Elizabeth, a new ensemble from Violet’s and Stella’s of Saratoga, and a photo session from Niki Rossi Photography. Spring Street Deli and Pizzeria will also provide food and beverages on the day of each makeover. Hot Yoga Saratoga is generously donating a complimentary month of yoga to each recipient. Saratoga Olive Oil Co. will be hosting the Makeover Mondays Reveal Parties.

Bb. Texture: "It's what makes everything — people, cities, stories, sweaters, life, hair — more interesting. Bb.Texture hair(un)dressing creme is our unprecedented take, designed to inspire hairdressers to create one-of-a-kind looks and reveal an elusive, undone-yet-done quality in each client's style. Our visual campaign starts with an iconic, textured look, calling to hairdressers to take it from here (with a few guiding words from Bb.Editorial Stylist Rolando Beauchamp). Experiment. A true original, Bb.Texture never styles the same way twice." –Bumble and bumble

Any clients who come in now through the end of March to purchase all or part of the Wear and Care Collection will receive 20% off if they mention they heard about the Wear and Care Collection on our website.
Be on the lookout for a new addition to the Thickening family. Thickening Serum will be arriving in October!!!
Thickening Spray has been renamed Thickening Hairspray because of some new styling advantages that came about through Bumble and bumble's latest reformulation. So now clients can enjoy the amazing volumizing, lasting blowdrys they've grown accustomed to alongside moderate hold as well. Let us know what you think!
We want to know what you would like to see for our upcoming summer salon event. Any ideas can be emailed to email@example.com but one thing is for sure there will be plenty of fun, cocktails, and an enlightening hair demonstration. We're looking forward to seeing what our clients come up with!
Bumble and bumble has GEL! In response to the incessant requests for Bumble and bumble to develop a gel, Bumble is launching two new gels. Bb. gel is the more flexible, medium hold product. On the other hand, gellac, aptly named for its shellac quality, can aid in achieving that classic slicked back style or other finished looks that require a strong hold. Look for the Bb. gels to arrive at Hair Creations in early March ‘09
