The Latest From Bumble and bumble

This week we're excited to introduce the newest addition to the Bumble and bumble hair care family. We've seen quite a few exciting changes and innovations from Bumble and bumble this past year, and are certain this next installation will not disappoint!

ColorGloss-emailfooter3.jpg

Introducing Bb Color Gloss- five illuminating glazes to instantly boost shine and revive color treated hair. From pink to brown, black to platinum blonde (even white!), Bumble and bumble has crafted an easy color pick-me-up that quickly deposits vivid and dimensional hues to brighten and illuminate any shade of hair. 

Available in brunette, warm blonde, cool blonde, red, and clear, Bumble and bumble's Color Gloss delivers shine and renewed color for up to three washes. Suitable for all hair types, Color Gloss enlivens high lights, low lights, single process colors, and everything in between (yes, this includes any rainbow color, too!). What's better is how easy it is to achieve a fresh color. Simply apply the desired gloss to dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse. Follow with your favorite color safe (or any) shampoo and conditioner. That's it! 

We're going to love this product for use in-between color appointments, when color begins to lose its vibrancy and shine. Yellow and brassy tones are instantly neutralized, keeping highlights and lighter tones cool and true. The conditioning effect of Color Gloss will add luster and dimension to your locks, creating all the shine you'll ever want!

Address Winter Skin with Eminence

As the days grow shorter and the air colder, many of us will find our skin feeling dry and itchy. This past week, we were met with a blast of cold air and winter weather, plunging temperatures well down below freezing. An added wind chill makes any journey outdoors a brutal one! 

Exposure to the cold is inevitable, as are the effects of winter air on your skin. Less moisture means drier skin for many, which leads to itchiness and irritation. When skin loses moisture, it overcompensates by producing more oil, which can sometimes result in break outs and a tired, dull appearance. Combat winter dryness this year and restore your skin back to a healthy, glowing complexion by enhancing your skin care routine with the following products specially formulated by Eminence Organic Skin Care. 

37878.jpg

It seems like no matter how much you moisturize, the coldness has a way of stripping away any remaining hydration in your skin. It's for this reason that Eminence's Facial Recovery Oil is our go-to product this month. This stuff is liquid gold- suitable for all skin types, two small drops work wonders in reviving tired and aged skin.

This top-selling lightweight organic oil deeply nourishes and hydrates skin, restoring moisture and balancing the skin's overall complexion. Olive, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Tea Tree, and Sesame oil contain calming and anti-inflammatory properties, leaving skin smooth and soft. Rue and Sage Leaf Extract hold antibacterial properties that soothe the skin and allow for deep hydration. The Facial Recovery Oil "reduces fine lines and wrinkles up to 43% and increases hydration by up to 53% in just 28 days." Treat and heal your skin to a bright and healthy complexion, and say farewell to dry skin this winter season!

Looking for a fun hairstyle for New Years Eve? Try this braid, shown in the video below, Created using Bumble and Bumble's Pret-a-powder on second-day hair. We also spoke with our stylists Travis, Heather, and Kelly to learn which additional products they would use to create this style. See their tips below the video!

In addition to the Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-powder, Travis suggests using the Goldwell Intense Smoothing Mask. "It fortifies the hair with keratin, helps hair become easy to blowdry, and it also helps de-frizz hair, creating a smooth texture," he says.

Travis also recommends the use of Davines Personal Assistant Hairspray. This is a brushable, reworkable hairspray which adds a light, steady, flexible hold to the hair. Additionally, he says the Kerasilk Repower Volumizing Spray is great product to use for this style. "It's a volumizer with keratin that gives an instant root lift and also has a built-in heat protectant."  

Heather adds that Bumble and bumble's Thickening DrySpun Finish spray is the perfect way to "create that lived in, airy texture to your hair with instant fullness." Bumble and bumble Dryspun spray gives you the hold and grit needed to have the perfect holiday hairstyle!

Both Heather and Kelly agreed that in order to achieve this look you need a great staple hairspray. The Davines Medium Hairspray is the perfect product to compliment this look. It sets the hair in place while giving it shine and is humidity resistant. It is our best hairspray for workable yet polished looks.

Getting the Most Out of Your Hair Appointment

 

Whether you're new to the area or you've been thinking about a fresh new 'do, the idea of changing salons or your usual hair routine can be daunting. The goal, of course, is to have a color and style that perfectly suits your style and aesthetic; however, getting to that point is often easier said than done. We want to share a few of our favorite tips to make sure you leave the salon feeling happy and looking your best after your next appointment.

 

If you're completely new to the area, you've probably been browsing online for salons near you, reading reviews, and perusing social media photos. This is a great place to start! In order to ensure that you've chosen the right salon to deliver your ideal results, we absolutely recommend conducting your own research and finding a location that suits your needs.

 

Even if you're not necessarily in a new location but are looking to try something new, online research is still a great place to begin. This brings us to our next tip: finding pictures or any other visual inspiration is a great way to communicate ideas to your hairstylist.

 

Some clients come in knowing exactly what they want, while others might need a little guidance. Either way, we are here to help! Consider booking a consultation before the day of your scheduled service, so you can meet and talk to your stylist about what it is exactly that you have in mind. This prevents any miscommunication and ensures that you’ve made the right choice. We offer 15-minute complimentary consultations, and always suggest booking one if you’re ever unsure.

 

At your consultation, make sure you are honest with your stylist and speak up about any concerns you might have. For example, if you never get blowdrys but your stylist suggests doing one, voice your preference! At the same time, come to the salon that day with an open mind. Stylists are trained to know what looks good on people, so trusting them and doing something a bit out of the ordinary might pleasantly surprise you.

 

Once you decide on the perfect cut and color, make sure to hold off on washing your hair before your appointment. Freshly shampooed hair can be harder to section and apply color, and your stylist will likely want to cut your hair wet in order to style it.

 

Following any of these steps is a sure way to ensuring a positive, fulfilling salon experience. We want you to be happy with your hair and confident that your stylist can help you achieve exactly what you want. Citrine Salon requires that all stylists have more than 6 years of experience in the industry. We do not work under a tier system, as all hairdressers are master stylists. Your happiness and satisfaction is our top priority- please don’t hesitate to stop in and check out our space and schedule an appointment!

 

Skincare meets the sea with Eminence

8bd12537d3950d90c63709b4e113c293.jpg

"IMMERSE YOUR SKIN IN THE MARINE FLOWER PEPTIDE COLLECTION TO REVEAL A MORE RADIANT, YOUTHFUL-LOOKING COMPLEXION WITH FEWER FINE LINES AND WRINKLES."

We are excited to introduce two brand new Eminence Organic Skin Care products here at Citrine! Composed of globally sourced plant and algae ingredients, the Marine Flower Peptide Collection consists of an eye cream and a serum that are ideal for all skin types. These products utilize the "superfoods of the sea" to create the new Smart Collagen Complex.

Eminence's new Smart Collagen Complex truly sets this collection apart. By activating the skin's own production of high quality, "smart" collagen, collagen density doubles and skin is left lifted and wrinkles filled. 

The plant peptides featured in this line are naturally derived from rice protein, making it easily absorbed by the skin. These peptides speed up the skin renewal process, improving texture and tone while boosting elasticity. 

The real star of this product, though, is globally sourced and sustainable algae. The Marine Flower Peptide Collection does not contain any shellfish or animal-derived ingredients. The algae is sourced from the Java Islands, Oregon, West Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Atlantic Coast. Delivering nutrient-rich minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, algae supplies the skin with long-lasting hydration and firmness. These organisms naturally defend themselves against sun damage and premature aging, and have been shown to deliver similar results when used on the skin. 


Welcoming Fall at Citrine Salon

tumblr_nvpd88UJqP1ua66e2o1_540.jpg

Pumpkins. They're found in just about everything this time of year: pancakes, chewing gum, even Pringles (pass). Now, you can find them in your skin care routine! Introducing the Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel from Eminence Organic Skin Care, now available at Citrine Salon as an independent service or an add-on to a facial. Rejuvenate tired and damaged summertime skin with this fall-inspired peel that smells just like pumpkin pie!

The Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel exfoliates skin with minimal irritation. Aside from pure yam and pumpkin pulp, pineapple and papaya extracts are infused into this specialty peel. Bromelin and Papain plant enzymes dissolve away impurities and reverse signs of sun damage, Glycolic and Lactic acids encourage healthy cell turnover and work to lighten pigmentation. Pores are deeply cleaned and refined with Willow bark extract and botanical Hyaluronic acid. 

PicMonkey-Collage14.jpg

Your skin will be left feeling revitalized and smoothed. Collagen production is increased, firming and plumping skin. Wrinkles are diminished and fine lines begin to fade. 

 

Not only will you notice an immediate difference, but results will continue to show in the days following the treatment. The Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme Peel is ideal for every skin type, except those with areas of active acne. We can't think of a better way of addressing summertime sun damage while celebrating the arrival of fall! Call or stop in to book an appointment with Imane, and experience this seasonal specialty... And maybe skip the pumpkin-flavored Pringles. But that's just our suggestion. 


Let Great Hair Days Live On with Prêt-à-Powder

For those of us with long, unruly, or color-treated hair (or just busy schedules), shampooing can be tedious and can cause more trouble than good. On good hair days, why shampoo away all your hard work? Keep you perfect 'do looking fresh and feeling clean by using dry shampoo.

Bumble and bumble's signature dry shampoo, Prêt-à-Powder, has long been a dry hair cleanser, volumizer, & texturizer all in one super light-weight powder. Prêt-à-Powder revives second-day styles, absorbing oils at the root. The bottle is shaken over hair from roots to ends, ensuring total cleaning coverage. Nevertheless, sprinkling the powder over hair without mess can be a challenge, and takes some technique. 

Bumble and bumble is no stranger to innovation. They've expanded the Prêt-à-Powder family to now include two new versions of their classic dry shampoo! We're ecstatic that they will now be sold in spray form- providing the same benefits without the mess!

 

Prêt-à-Powder Trés Invisible and Trés (Nourishing)

Stretch your style from yesterday with instant cleansing and volumizing dry shampoo spray. Prêt-à-Powder Trés Invisible spray is just like the OG powder, leaving strands lightly scented with a just-washed clean feeling. Perfect when on-the-go, just spray into hair and work from roots to ends. Et voila! No white residue, no mess!

TRÉS (NOURISHING)

Our favorite upgrade to the Prêt-à-Powder family: for some of us, dry shampoo can almost be too drying. Bumble's Trés Invisible Nourishing is infused with hibiscus oil, so dry and damaged hair types get the full cleansing benefit, without sacrificing soft ends, texture, and shine. UV filters in both sprays prevent any further damage from the drying effects of the sun. 

Make great hair days last till tomorrow! All Prêt-à-Powder installments come in large and travel sizes. Stop by and pick up one today!

 

Introducing Our Newest Team Member

This week we are excited to announce the newest addition to our talented team here at Citrine Salon- Imane!

IMG_1108.JPG

Imane (pronounced ee-mon) is joining us as an esthetician with more than 4 years of experience in the industry.

Imane is originally from Rabat, Morocco, having moved to the United States 11 years ago. She is fluent in English, Arabic, and French. Imane obtained her Bachelor's degree in Psychology and worked as a nurse's assistant upon moving to the states. Nevertheless, her long-time passion for skincare and beauty is what drew her to aesthetics.

Imane's favorite aspect of skincare is seeing a positive change in her client's skin. She believes that everyone can achieve beautiful, healthy skin, and finds the process of getting them there an extremely rewarding one. She treats her client's skin as her own, and wants nothing but the best results for them. 

In addition, Imane specializes in waxing! She knows her way around the wax pot and loves to use hard wax. We are ecstatic to have her on board to assist all of our clients that schedule routine waxing services. Her gentle touch and expertise ensure a fast and painless waxing experience.

Being a certified Eminence skincare expert, Imane's favorite Eminence product is the Bamboo Firming Fluid. She loves its anti-aging properties and how wrinkles quickly diminish after continued use. The Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant is another one of Imane's favorites, for its ability to lightly exfoliate the skin and reduce pore size. 

Imane is with us Tuesday's, Wednesday's, Friday's and Saturday's. We are looking forward to having her clientele join us at Citrine- if you'd like to schedule any skin or waxing services with her please call or email us. We can't wait for you to meet her!

 

 

Eminence Top Sellers at Citrine Salon

Since we introduced Eminence Organic Skin Care at Citrine Salon in May, the products have been hard to keep in stock. We knew we were going to love the line immediately, but were not expecting such positive feedback so soon! The all-natural, plant-based Hungarian skin care line was founded under the same beliefs and principles as Citrine, and we knew it would be a perfect match. 

Eminence is one of the most extensive professional and retail product lines in the industry for both face and body. It is natural, organic, and Biodynamic- sporting a broad array of products that treat all skin conditions and concerns. We love that all the products are developed using concentrated formulas, making them cost effective, and are guaranteed to deliver results in the healthiest way possible. 

Nevertheless, we've noticed clients gravitate more towards a couple products in particular. Not only have our clients achieved dramatic results with these products at Citrine, but they are best-sellers across the entire Eminence brand. These past few months, we've barely been able to keep the following products on our shelves: 

1. Bamboo Firming Fluid

If you're looking to achieve a tighter, smoother, lifted appearance, this is answer. The widely popular Bamboo Firming Fluid dramatically firms and tightens skin, reduces visible signs of aging, and increases the skin's ability to stay youthful. Bamboo contains soluble and insoluble fiber, anti-oxidants, proteins, vitamins, and minerals for stronger skin. A natural Retinol alternative complex immediately lifts and tightens with the help of chicory root and tara tree gum. Also within Bamboo Firming Fluid is a Swiss Green Apple stem cell concentrate, coconut oil, coconut water, Monoi, Yam, Carrot, Neroli oil, and Eminence's Biocomplex antioxidant booster.

Winner of Best Retinol Alternative, Earth Day Beauty Awards, Healing Lifestyles & Spas, 2013

2. Stone Crop Gel Wash

For those with dry, sensitive, or irritated skin, Stone Crop Gel Wash provides gentle cleansing without drying the skin. Formulated without harsh parabens or sulfates, impurities are washed away to reveal hydrated, smooth skin. Stone Crop, or Sedum, is a genus of succulent, used for its hydrating and healing benefits. A light soap base cleanses and softens the skin, while shea butter works as an antiseptic to restore skin to a calm state. Within the first few uses, you'll notice cleaner skin that doesn't feel "stripped" of it's natural hydration, as well as the removal of surface build-up and impurities. The skin's complexion is left cleared and glowing, with pores that are purified and tightened. 

Winner of Best Cleanser, Beauty with a Conscience Awards, 2016

3. Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant

One of the team's personal favorites, Eminence's Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant is a daily use rice-based exfoliant and cleanser. A gentle exfoliator, impurities and clogged pores are lightly smoothed away, cleansing and infusing the skin with antioxidants and vitamins. Strawberry works as an astringent, naturally containing salicylic acid that gently removes impurities to brighten skin and shrink pores. Rhubarb acts as a disinfectant, and is a good source of ascorbic acid and Vitamin C. Lactic acid, rice, chickpea flour, and oats exfoliate, deep cleanse, and absorb excess oil. Eminence's Biocomplex booster ensures maximum mineral and vitamin absorption. Skin is perfectly cleansed and refined, leaving a smooth and polished texture.

Bumble and bumble Prepares to Release New Damage Repair Products

TEASED, TUGGED, FRIED, DYED... YOU’VE HURT YOUR HAIR. NOW, IT’S TIME TO SAY SORRY.

Did you know a strand of hair is stronger than a copper wire of the same diameter? Or that it's one of the fastest growing tissues in the human body, second to bone marrow?

We owe a lot to our hair, especially for those of us that regularly color, curl, flat-iron and tease. It's a miracle hair is still attached to our head, after all the ups and downs and trouble we put it through. 

Even with split ends, tangles, or dryness, hair is resilient. No matter how much we mistreat it and damage it further, our hair stays with us. We owe a lot to our tresses for this- and should make up for the chaos we inflict on it. Masques and treatments restore moisture and shine to the hair, but what can be used to reverse all types of heat damage and normal wear and tear?

Bumble and bumble has long carried products tailored specifically to damaged hair. Various Bumble masques, complexes, and leave-in treatments provide relief to even the most unfortunate heads of hair. Nevertheless, Bumble is set to release two new damage repair products that stand out from the rest: Save the Day and While You Sleep. The most intensive repair products yet, Save the Day and While You Sleep are super versatile and are suitable for every hair type.

Save the Day is intended to be used during the daytime, and is a lightweight fluid/serum that repairs hair and split ends, protects against heat and UV damage, and hydrates and smooths flyaways and frizz. Save the Day should be applied to damp hair before drying- easy as that! You'll have instantly softer, smoother, healthier-looking and feeling hair. Getting around-the-clock repair could not be more simple.

While You Sleep, as you guessed, is an overnight restorative masque that helps reverse the appearance of damaged hair. This super-nourishing treatment repairs past damaged and prevents against any future abuse. By morning, hair will feel silky-smooth and de-stressed. Both of these products are perfect for any excess color clients, frequent stylers, and people who spend a lot of time under the sun or in air-polluted metropolitan areas. 

Save the Day and While You Sleep are both lightweight, multi-benefit products formulated with camellia oil and antioxidants for advanced hair repair. Achieving revived, healthy hair can't be any easier. Bumble and bumble is releasing these products in the coming weeks, however Citrine will have them in early for retail purchase. Both are free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. We are currently accepting pre-orders! Call to get started on the ultimate hair repair or stop in to pick up your own.

Just in Time For Summer: Bb's NEW Don't Blow It!

Sometimes achieving that effortless, air-dried hair style can be easier said than done. As the trend for natural and low-maintenance hair styling continues to become more popular, finding the right method to style hair without all the work can be challenging. We all want to have great hair, but don't want to put in the work for it, right? And why use heat and product just to make it look like you didn't use heat and product? If the effortless 'do is what you're going for, it should go without saying that little to no effort is required. So what can you do to decrease the time spent getting the perfect style?

Bumble and bumble released Don't Blow It in 2014- made specifically for fine hair in need of texture and body. This styling creme is super versatile- meant to be worked into towel-dried hair and styled whichever way you like. Scrunch your hair, twist in some curls, or work your fingers through for easy texture and lots of body.

Three years later, Bumble invents Don't Blow It for thick hair, and the hair gods rejoice. Arriving at Citrine just in time for summer, Don't Blow It will give your blow dryer a rest for the summer season. Made for medium to thick hair, Don't Blow It conditions hair while reducing frizz. Giving you the perfect amount of control, Don't Blow It refines and defines with little effort. Work a small amount from mid-shaft of the hair to the ends. Let air-dry, and go!

Seriously, though, could getting the perfect style be any easier?

Give your blow dryer a break this summer! Stop in to give Don't Blow It a try. Both cremes offer UV protection- perfect for the days spent outside in the sun. These lightweight stylers are ideal for summer- great hair days with no heat or hassle.


April is Beauty Sustainability Month!

Citrine was founded on sustainable and eco-friendly principles back in 2009. We love the planet we call home!, and we do everything we can to reduce our impact on the environment. Our location here at East 54 in Chapel Hill is an environmentally-friendly LEED certified development. The salon relies on low-energy lighting and tons of natural sunlight. We follow procedures that involve all earth-friendly cleaning products, maintain a completely paperless booking and transaction system, and recycle goods and waste wherever and whenever we can. We believe that living a green lifestyle does not have to entail going without!

Aside from the larger measures taken to reduce our carbon footprint, we wondered what else we could do to promote an eco-friendly hair regimen and lifestyle. What ways could our staff and clientele take advantage of the perks of sustainable beauty? After all, it is the smaller, more gradual changes in life that have substantial, lasting impacts.

We are a proud carrier of Davines hair and Comfort Zone skincare products. Davines (and Comfort Zone) is an Italian-based hair care brand focusing on customized hair products that are eco-friendly in as many ways possible. The unique packaging Davines has designed is a case in point! Their shampoo and conditioner containers are reusable, and serve multiple purposes other than holding your favorite hair product.

These containers are produced using as little already-recycled plastic as possible! After the product inside is gone, and the container is cleaned, it is food-safe! A popular use for conditioner containers is to store and carry food and snacks.

Our personal favorite use of these empty Davines containers is repurposing them as planters. They serve as the perfect sized planter for smaller seedlings and plants. Our succulents here at the salon have a great home in their repurposed conditioner containers and are thriving!

Not all of us have a green thumb, though. For those that still love the sustainable concept of Davines, we're offering a promotion when you bring in your clean (full size!) shampoo and conditioner containers. We'll refill your product and top it off with a 10% discount. It's just another way to achieve beautiful hair in the most sustainable way possible.

If you love a Davines shampoo and/or conditioner, also consider ordering a liter size of your favorite product. Shopping in bulk greatly reduces the amount of waste created, and you save money! We can order many of our best-selling Davines products in larger sizes, and they're shipped to us immediately.

Often times, it's the small efforts and changes we make in our day-to-day lives that have the biggest impact. Striking a balance between beauty and sustainability can be challenging, but the results improve our lives and the world around us. As we celebrate Beauty Sustainability Month and Earth Day in April, consider what ways you can reduce your impact on the planet and how your health and beauty habits affect yourself and the world we live in.

Stop in this month to check out our Davines line and get inspiration on how you can be sustainably beautiful!


An Exciting Addition to the Bb Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Family

We've fallen in love with Bumble and bumble's Hairdresser's Invisible Oil line here at the salon. Not only are we seeing great results from the shampoo and conditioner, but the balm-to-oil masque and invisible oil spray are getting some of our clients through these dry winter months. For others, frizz and dehydration are always a concern, no matter what time of year. For those of us with dry to very dry hair types, continually stripping the hair of natural oils can result in a style that makes for more maintenance and trouble, not to mention the risk of damage and breakage. And it can be hard to find a shampoo that cleans the hair but is gentle enough to retain moisture. Regardless of the weather and outside influences, dull and frizzy hair is no fun anyway!

Bumble and bumble is introducing a new addition to the Hairdresser's family, and it's sure to be a hit among the salon and our clients. The Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Cleansing Oil-Creme Duo is meant to be used in conjunction with the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil shampoo and conditioner. Use it in place of your Hairdresser's shampoo every other day, and follow with the Hairdresser's conditioner like you normally would. It's that easy.

One of our favorite things about this new Bumble product is (like always) the packaging! A low-foam cleanser and luxurious moisturizing creme housed in dual-chambers combine to gently eliminate dirt and build-up while preserving your hair's natural oils.

Like the rest of the Hairdresser's products, the Cleansing Oil-Creme Duo contains six signature oils that deeply moisturize and condition all hair types. Over time, the added moisture will further silken and protect your tresses. It's a simple addition to your regular washing routine, but with all the extra benefits you never knew you needed!
