Bumble and Bumble Brilliantine


 

$27, Bumble and Bumble

What started out in 1977 as a tiny hair salon located on 57th Avenue in New York City has grown into a stylish empire—complete with two swishy salons, a bevy of high-quality hair products and a distinct presence on fashion’s runways—in just three decades. And we’ve got its founder Michael Gordon to shake our Surf Sprayed hair at while we say: thank you. From the brand’s Thickening Spray and Sunday Shampoo to Crème de Coco Masque and Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil, our hair has never looked better. Now we want yours to look and feel great, too. Bumble and Bumble’s Brilliantine is, as its packaging clearly states: unique and hard to define. Best suited for thick, coarse or dry hair, the non-sticky and sweet-smelling cream adds the perfect amount of polish to short, medium and long hair styles. Dab a little in your palms, rub them together and then work it through your damp hair. Want to bring out your curls: then give your hair a finger tousle. Prefer your coif be sleek and smooth: simply comb the product throughout. You can mail Mr. Gordon a thank you card when you’re done.
