According to L'Oreal Professionnel (printed in Marie Claire May 2011 issue)

American’s spend $1.4 billion a year on hair products – more than China, France, Brazil and India combined!!

Now how do I get them to spend just one million on mine?? Ha!

Bumble and Bumble’s Blondish Hair Powder:

I’ve always admired Bumble & Bumble for their styling products, for me who is a cutter rather than a technician, I am always on the look out for styling products that work well. I have always felt that Bumble & Bumble is one of those companies that concentrated on their styling products rather than cleansing products, this was a first that I saw, which has inspired me to do the same one day.
When Bumble & Bumble first brought out a ‘dry shampoo’ I loved it. Since then they have progressed to spray colored versions of it. They claim to not only add fullness and enhance colors and blend roots, they also dry cleanse and to get an extra day out of your blow dry, I was very excited to try them, and did so quite afew times, but I have to say I found these colored hair powders to be abit too sticky for my liking, and I felt that although it definitely gave the hair body, I couldn't put my fingers through my hair as it left color in my nails and fingers. But all in all, I have heard very good reviews from others about it who don't mind the stickiness or the color in the nails, so good one guys!


So what do you think? I think he’s a singer from a band called Big Bangs TOP. Not really my cup of tea but I have to say, at least they didn’t give him bleached out yellow Asian hair, right?

Going back to my ‘way too feminine’ look for Asian guys
article. I really don’t think this one can be helped really, what with that baby faced look, how can he NOT look fem?

Well, we've heard of them before, online makeovers where you can upload your photo and try out new hairstyles!!

In Style's version of it, follow the link and give it a try.

Although fun to do, I have always been quite pleased that we as hairdressers will not be replaced by computers! How can someone make a program that will look at someones hair and face shape and give them a good consultation, or give advice as to how one should style a certain type of hair, or what style should be cut to suit someone the best. Hope I'm not wrong : (

In reality, I feel these programs give a false illusion as the hair thickness, texture, color and everything else is not the same as the person trying out the style, so please don't take them too seriously as in most cases it wouldn't do anything but give you a very rough idea of what it might look like if you half close your eyes!!

Thanks to Kelly Cakar for sharing.

Taken from a DSquared Ad, its most probably a wig but hey, I liked the total look of it a lot.

Love the bowl shape as well as the way it has slightly chunky edges and a little bit of layering throughout the edges. We used us call this the pageboy/halo style back in the Vidal Sassoon UK days.

If anyone is interested, there's a great new educational website that features a heck of a lot of talent showing alot of haircuts and colors. Here is a clip of a video of a classic Halo haircut demonstrated by Stacey Broughton. (Ex Artistic Director from Sassoons)



There really is nothing like a couple of great reviews to start the day off... Thank Lindsay and Amanda ...

I know I've said this before but your dry shampoo/texturizer is quite honestly the best stuff ever. I even use it on my clean, dry hair to give it more density and texture. I've never found anything else like it and I've tried so many things! I'm half asian but I totally inherited the asian hair gene full-on. I have thick individual strands of hair but sometimes (especially in the bangs area) I can see a sparse look. It's not like balding, but just sparse...especially if my hair gets oily...know what I mean? Anyway, your product totally helps it look less sparse, too. I'll be a lifelong supporter of JuJuChan!

I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve!

Finally a product that does what it says!!! My hair is long, fine and extremely straight, because of this my hair tends to weigh itself down and on those days that I didn't wash my hair well let's just say it hasn't always been pretty....until I started using Juju Chan texture powder!!!!

Trust me I've tried them all the dry shampoos that promise your hair will look like you just washed it...NOT! The products that promise more body....ugh those are the worst. They last 5 mins and then you are stuck with gross product in your hair and it's still flat...FAIL!!!
I came across this product by chance and after that first time using it (without knowing where to get it) I ran to Sephora to see if they carried it....they didn't and I was completely shocked. How could a product this great not be in there stores?! Luckily I discovered that you could purchase online or Dekko Salon (yay for me for living so close to my favorite salon :)

Since using this product I tend to like my hair more on the days I haven't washed it, It gives it wonderful body, takes away any grease and I swear it makes my thin hair feel like it's doubled in thickness. On the days I do wash my hair I still use it to give my hair a bit more oomph. Love love love this stuff!!!
