New York Fashion Week

The 2012 New York Fashion Week, which took place in mid-September, featured hair styles crafted by Bumble and bumble stylists with Bb products.

While some of the looks are big-city fabulous, others are practical for any day-time do. Here are some of our favorite styles as well as the “how to adapt runway to everyday” from Shape magazine.

The Look:  Mandy Coon: Effortless Glamor

The inspiration: Influenced by modern Parisian women like Carine Roitfeld, former Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue, and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, Bumble and bumble. hair stylist Rolando Beauchamp created an approachable, effortless look for the Mandy Coon Spring 2012 collection. The natural, loose waves of the hair compliment the asymmetric hemlines of the satin dresses, allowing the clothes to solely speak for themselves.

Try this trend: This look’s simplicity makes it incredibly easy to recreate for everyday wear. Start by rubbing gel throughout your hair while it’s still damp. As opposed to the glossy finish of hairspray, Beauchamp says the gel will give your hair a soft, matte look. Blow dry with a flat brush, applying a quarter size of grooming creme to your ends to help weigh them down. Next, twist random sections of hair around a 1-inch curling iron, leaving the ends out. Finish the look by using your hands to work in a texture cream that will give it that perfect undone-yet-done quality.

Best hair products for the job:
 Bb. Gel ($25),Grooming Creme ($26), Bb. Texture ($26)

The Look: Lacoste: Sporty and Fresh

The inspiration: A brand known for their sporty fashion with sharp polo shirts and their iconic crocodile logo, it wasn’t hard for Philippon to decide to create a very natural hairstyle for the Lacoste Spring 2012 runway show.

Try this trend: Straight from the tennis courts to the runway. This fresh look is probably the easiest hairdo of the week to recreate. To get started, spray Bb. Prep onto your roots and then apply Surf Spray all over the head. Simply blow dry your hair with a diffuser, and refine the look by using a small comb to clean up your part.

Best hair products for the job: Bb. Prep($18), Surf Spray ($23)

The Look: Ruffian: Equestrian Royalty

The inspiration: The hairstyle for the Ruffian Spring 2012 collection returns the label to its namesake roots: one of the greatest female, thoroughbred racehorses of all time. Inspired by equestrian royalty like Charlotte Casiraghiand the jockey society, Moodie wanted to create a look that mimicked the braid of a thick horse’s tail.

Try this trend: Prep your hair with Bb. Prep and Thickening Hairspray and then apply a styling cream from roots to end. Power dry the hair and pull it back into a sleek ponytail below the occipital bone. Backcomb the ponytail and then flat iron the hair to create density. Brush it out and braid the hair into a large plait. Polish off your look by applying a finishing spray to the head to give it a bit of shine.

Best hair products for the job: Bb. Prep($18), Thickening Hairspray ($26), Styling Creme ($24), Bb. Shine On Finishing Spray($25)

These three looks are hot for 2012. Ask your Professional Bumble and bumble stylist at Haven how to master the looks at you next appointment.

Learn how to Make-up yourself!

Do you ever wish your make up could look as flawless as the celebrities? It could, if you hired a professional make up artist to get you ready every morning — OR– you could have a make up lesson from one of Haven’s experienced skin therapists and learn how to do it yourself. Look like a professional did your make up every day.

A make up lesson from Haven goes through the step by step process, teaching you how to apply each product, rather than just seeing the final result. The hands on session will help you to feel confident with your own skills when you walk out the door.

The professional skin therapists can teach you how to master any look, day time, evening, red carpet — the sky’s the limit!

Haven carries the full Jane Iredale Make-up line (ask to see the new fall collection, Naturally Confident!)

What are you waiting for? Schedule a make up lesson when you have some time in your day or before you go out for the night.

For your boyfriend, best friend, and brother

This Q & A from Cosmopolitan caught out eye:

Q: I love my boyfriend, but I hate his dorky hairstyle. What’s a hot hair look for guys right now that he could try?
A: The “in” do for guys at the moment is a very relaxed, lived-in look (à la Seth Cohen from The O.C.). Suggest that your guy aim for a length of about two to three inches so his locks are slightly shaggy. Also, have him toss out any hard waxes or gels he may use and switch to a light styling creme that will bring out his hair’s natural texture, says Vaughn, stylist for Bumble and Bumble Salon in New York City. He should work the creme into his towel-dried hair then twist little sections around his finger to get a soft, tousled look. Try Bumble and Bumble Grooming Creme, $26.

Liza Thibodeau, Master Stylist at Haven, agrees with Vaughn saying, “Bumble and bumble Grooming Creme is perfect for the ‘wall street man’ who is always on the go.”

The Grooming Creme gives his playful style light texture and separation without making his hair shiny, or making him have to work for it.

Send your man to Haven to pick up his Grooming Creme or treat him (and help his hair) by picking it up for him.

Haven has a Heart

Get your Saturday morning exercise in with a purpose! This Saturday, September 17 Haven will be participating at the Green Bay Heart Walk benefiting the American Heart Association.

Haven stylists will be applying red hair extensions for $15 or strips of red hair spray for $5 before the walk. The “Go Red” message sent by the American Heart Association reminds us that everyone can be a victim of a heart attack or stroke at any age. These red hair pieces are trendy reminders of that very message.

Haven staff will also be participants in the three mile walk starting at 9:00 am from NWTC. Walkers and Haven employees have raised money to help support the American Heart Association. Money from the walk is used to fund research in an effort to find a cure for heart disease and stroke and help to educate and raise awareness about heart disease and stroke, America’s number 1 and 3 killers respectively.

Fall in Love with Teal

We recently came across an article by Yolanda Wikiel in the September issue of Real Simple that perfectly pairs with the new fall make up trends.

Wikiel tells, “The color of the season: teal. This elegant (and suddenly omnipresent) jewel tone is a brilliant way to update an understated wardrobe, particularly when you pair it with gray, saffron, or violet.”


The 2010 color of the year turquoise has transformed into the “richer, more autumn-friendly teal, as seen on the runways of Fendi, Gucci, and Marc Jacobs.”

Of course you can always match teal with anything black, but these color alternatives add extra spice in your fall wardrobe (and will be a fabulous accent to the Jane Iredale fall make up collection!)

Follow Wikiel’s tips from Real Simple magazine:

  • Pair teal with… Gray.

Opting for steely gray allows you to try a trendy shade and still be taken seriously at work. Teal nails might be pushing it, but then again, they’ll look positively magnetic for a night out.

  • Pair teal with… Saffron.

This exotic duo is more sophisticated (and seasonal) than its primary-color cousin, blue and yellow. Going with cozy knits, wool, and suede keeps this match fall-appropriate, but adding toasty brown tones (even when it comes to makeup) helps, too.

  • Pair teal with… Violet.

These shades may be intense, but since blue and purple lie side  by side on the color wheel, the effect is far from jarring. If you’re up for it, amplify the already opulent palette with a touch of satin, dangling jewels, or boysenberry lips.

Stay trendy this fall!
