I recently returned from a trip to Bumble and bumble. University, a house created to share techniques, ideas, and inspiration.  Bb.U’s classes have been designed by hairdressers for hairdressers and has been called the Harvard of Hair Education.  I spent two intense days studying the art of a cut using solely my Straight Razor, great products, and my creative eye.

 

Long time Bb. Stylists Coco, William, and Keri were my class’ lead instructors and I had the absolute pleasure of working closely in 18 year Bumble and bumble. Veteran Coco’s group!  Coco is completely amusing and claims she comes with a warning label… she pushes you hard!  Luckily, I made it out alive as she left me inspired with her encouraging words and no tears were shed! 🙂

During Day 1 we focused on Long Layers cut.  This look is simple organic, creates movement in the perimeter while creating interest by varying lengths around the face.  Long Layers works best on lengths below the shoulders or longer.  I love the look of a long layers cut, it brings an open airiness to blah long hair! Below are reference shots followed by a photo of my model.

Day 2 was devoted to my always favorite The Bob.  The razor Bob is a fundamental cut characterized by its versatility, balance and the unique effect the razor produces.  It offers a multitude of looks and variations.  My rule of thumb is you can never go wrong with a bob, forever classic and always chic… who wouldn’t want one!  Below are reference shots followed by a photo of my model.

This trip will have been my fifth visit and somehow I still get that good warm butterfly in my stomach every time, pretty much that feeling you get with a new crush.  Bb. University has a way of leaving me with a lasting impression and a new lesson in life/hairdressing.  This time my lesson wasn’t just about hairdressing or razor cuts but about trusting yourself.  Coco sat me down during our final evaluations and said “You got it! Trust yourself and exude you, you’re ready so go for it”.  Since hearing her words I have been thinking, how many of us out there are timid to show all of whats inside us?  Whether its a new cut and style, bold lipstick, clear outlook, a louder voice, or just a fresh attitude… what is holding you back from showing your true self?  If a Razor cut is what you need to feel more you, then come see me for a complimentary consultation so I can help you shine!  Until next time toodle-loo Readers!

Yours in style <3,

Brandy
