JUST IN! New members to the Bumble and Bumble Thickening family!


The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here! Bumble and Bumble's newest members of the Thickening family!  After receiving a trial of the Thickening Full Form Mousse and Thickening Creme Contour clients and stylists immediately fell in love with it.  Get yours today!

Bb Thickening Full Form Mousse: The cushiony creme mousse inflate hair as you add heat to lift, sculpt and hold full-bodied silhouettes.  Specially formulated to have extra density per dollop and polymers to provide strong grip for better round brush traction.  Not only will it keep hair soft with lightweight conditioners, provide natural sheen but it will also keep hair from feeling crunchy or heavy.  It can be used with all hair types, even color treated hair!

  1. Shake well and apply to damp hair before heat-styling from root to tip.
  2. Blow-dry with round brush ( for best results use with round brush) or without for the illusion of more hair, layer, and build.  Don't forget if you need a good round brush here at Citrine Salon we have the one perfect for your hair type!

Bb Thickening Creme Contour: A dense, pliable shaping creme that melts in your hands to a lightweight yet delicate paste to create hi-def silhouettes.  With polymers for hold,  seedcake wax and carnauba wax for dimension are balanced in a satin like creme base that transforms into a sheer paste.  Creates fine, finger-made contours, supple drape and a luxurious, lived-in quality while keeping styles full!  Great for all hair types and even color treated hair.

  1. Use after heat-styling to finish dry hair.
  2. Melt a small amount in palms and smooth through dry hair to create contours and shape full styles.  Use on mostly dry hair to define and shape shorter cuts.

A Quick Color Consult

Some of us like colors that might not actually be flattering...(and some of our girlfriends won't let us know!!) When choosing a hair color, it's important to consider these three things:

  1. Your natural hair color
  2. Your skin tone
  3. Your eye color

At Citrine Salon, our stylists are trained to know exactly what satisfies those three important things and most importantly what you want!

We know that some clients like to pick out pictures before a consultation (and that's perfectly fine - we like to know where you want and hope to go with your color! We're very visual people!) When tearing those magazine pictures out, keep these key points in mind:

  • Most hair colors flatter PALE skin tones! (Just like most haircuts flatter most oval face shapes!)
  • Avoid shades of golden blonde or red if your skin is pink. Golden blondes and reds are warm. Pinks are cool. You'll want to stick with ash tones to remain neutral or you won't balance out!
  • Avoid gold, orange or yellow tones if your skin is yellow. Stick with the deep red family.
  • Lately we've been seeing lots of dark hair coloring on the red carpet - but its best on our olive skin girls!

If you're fashionable and know what color to select that looks good on you, chances are you're on the right track to picking the right hair color....

  • If you look good in red, orange, golden yellow, olive green or rust: You suit warm hair tones! Think any of the goldens...
  • If you look good in bluish red, fuscia, black, royal blue or pine green: You are totally COOL! Think platinum, ashy brown, a cool jet black and for those daring ladies - a burgundy!
  • If you look good in red, purple, charcoal grey, periwinkle or teal: You have remained neutral! Think sandy blondes and chocolate brunettes! And for those sultry women - mahogany is hot, hot, hot!!!
