Bumble and bumble
As a wise lyricist once wrote, summertime is all about easy living. While the song obviously wasn't referring to our beauty habits, we try to apply this sage sentiment to said routine anyway. After all, who wants to waste a sunny afternoon stuck in the bathroom, fussing with frizzy, fried, or flat hair? Not us! In our quest to find the perfect products to help us streamline and simplify our summer styling process, we discovered that Bumble and bumble has all the answers. They've created amazing solutions for all your hair care problems, so try a few of our favorites and see what works for you. One thing's for sure: no matter how hot it is outside, these dream cremes, super sprays, and styling essentials will keep you looking cool all season long.
Curl Conscious Holding Foam ($27)
Curly-haired ladies, listen up, because Bumble and bumble made something special for your lovely ringlets: Holding Foam. With a little help from this product, you can embrace your natural texture and show off gorgeous curls all summer long (which sure beats trying to wrestle your hair into a pin-straight style). Just evenly apply a small amount of the Holding Foam to damp hair and it will control and shape your spirals instantly.
If you spend your days battling flyaways and trying to tame your humidity-hating hair, Defrizz is for you! It's an anytime product (meaning you can use it before, during, or after styling) that's essential for creating a soft, silky, smooth look. Use it on damp hair to define curls and control frizz or on dry hair to add sheen and movement.
Our friends with short hair always lament their lack of great styling products and suffer from what we call The Goldilocks Conundrum. One product is too heavy, another isn't robust enough, and nothing works perfectly. Happily, relief is here courtesy of Bumble and bumble's Sumotech, a very cool moulding compound. It's not a wax or paste or creme per se, but somehow manages to be a lovely blend of all three. It's light enough that even fine-haired gals can try it, while strong enough to style even the coarsest hair.
Creme de Coco Masque ($25)
Spending time poolside or √† la plage is a time-honored summer tradition. Of course, all those relaxing hours outdoors means that your hair tends to get dry, dull, and rough¬--ew! Repair the damage with an ultra-rich masque like Creme de Coco, which is infused with coconut oil and a trio of shine-enhancing butters: seed, shea, and mango. It's ideal for most hair types (save for super-fine locks) and will restore even the most lackluster locks to a gorgeous glossy state!
Grooming Creme ($25)
Of all of Bumble and bumble's many amazing products, the Grooming Creme tops our list as an absolute necessity. It's amazing when used alone: it adds texture and polish to dry or damp hair, giving it that effortless, model-off-duty look. You can also combine the creme with a range of other products for amazing results. Pair it with the Defrizz and you'll have a weather-resistant polished style, while when mixed with Surf Spray, the results are beachy sophistication.
Much like a great pair of jeans or the perfect white t-shirt, Prep is one of those foundation products that help build an amazing final look. The spray not only detangles hair with its nutrient-rich formula, it also enhances the performance of other products, so use this as the base for any style.
Surf Spray ($22)
We couldn't talk about Bumble and bumble without mentioning what might be their classic summer product¬--Surf Spray! Just spritz it on clean, dry hair to give it texture or work it through damp hair and let it air-dry to create natural, relaxed waves. No matter how you use it, this salt-water spray is a must-buy for creating beachy styles all year round.
